*~*~* beware of spoilers *~*~*
I loved the main characters of the previous books in the Gansett Island series, but their sappy anecdotes in this book just interrupted the flow of the story and completely threw me out of my reading trance several times.
Anyone who hasn't read the other books in the series will have NO clue who these people are, and it's a waste of exposition to give us their backstories. Readers like me who have devoured the previous books already know that McCarthys & Friends have the most romantic, sex-filled marriages ever, and one book for each couple is enough.
And then we get more Tiffany and Blaine. And now Carolina and Seamus. And now Dan and Kara. And soon Jenny and whoever (probably Adam). It's just too many couples to keep track of, and I don't want to have to choose which chapters to skip.
I'm also getting very frustrated with the continuing emphasis on the "Let's Rebound Into A New Relationship With No Downtime Whatsoever!" theme. Janey. Sydney. Laura. Tiffany. I think the tourist brochures for Gansett Island must have a tagline like "Where Fabulous Single Men Appear Out Of Nowhere Whenever A Damsel In Distress Needs One."
Laura and Owen actually do discuss "she can't live without a man" (a thought planted by the Evil Ex-Husband), but it's quickly glossed over and forgotten. As a divorced single parent, I get *really* tetchy reading romances that ignore the struggle for self-esteem and self-sufficiency or treat it as an afterthought.
I'm also confused about Jenny the Lighthouse Keeper. We get an entire chapter of her sob story at the beginning, and then she's reduced to cameo appearances in two throwaway scenes. I know it's setting her up for her own storyline, but why include the tragic backstory here? And a "Tell Us Your Life Story" essay question might be believable for a college application, but not for a job.
I'm not ready to give up on this series yet, but I hope the next installment features more relationship building and less soap opera.
However, my big problem with the book is her recurring theme of "my husband won't sign the divorce papers so we can't get divorced and I have to stay married to him forever." This one really bothered me because it points to a lack of research on the author's part. If she had researched, she would know that if someone refuses to sign divorce papers, it goes to court in what is called a contested divorce and a judge eventually orders the person to sign and the divorce decree to issue. It's just more complicated and expensive. I've never been married and my parents have never gotten a divorce, and I still know that. Knowing all that, some of the story lines in the series become a little ridiculous, especially the whole Francine/Ned story line and forcing Maddie to meet with her Dad so he would grant the divorce. In reality, Francine could have gotten a contested divorce and Maddie would not have had to meet with her dirtbag dad. Same with Laura, and her father as a judge should have told her this, she could have gotten a contested divorce, especially on the grounds of adultery, and not had to deal with her cheating, scumbag ex. This mistake was realy distracting during the reading, especially as the issue cropped up multiple times, because I kept thinking, "You idiot, stop dealing with him and just file for contested divorce." However, other than that, I really did enjoy the series and I'll look forward to reading the other books in the series. I just hope she does her legal research better in the next books. And no, I'm not a lawyer, these are just aspects of law that regular people are, or should be, aware of. I would have given the book, and the entire series, more stars if the author had done a little more research and made her story lines a little more believable regarding legal issues.
Oh, I will say that I've read the summary for the new book, waiting for love, and I'm concerned that her story line involves Adam getting cheated out of his company by his ex girlfriend. I hope she's managed it in a believably legal way, like he stupidly signed it over to her, not in another farfetched legal maneuver. Otherwise I'm going to be really frustrated.
Despite my whining, it is an amusing series, often funny, and if you want to take a couple of hours out of your day to visit happy ever after, this is a good series with which to do it.
Lots of people having sex with each other but the plot of the book gets lost with all the sex that everyone's having. I've read other books by this author and didn't fell this way. Just seems like she added all these other people in just to get another book out of the series.
