In my opinion the real story, the one with the most emotional impact, was Carley and Mitch's story. But it was underplayed for a manic heroine and a repressed hero. Now, when the lovescenes came, they were hot... but one shouldn't have to suffer through stilted dialogue, extraordinarily badly crafted scene changes and thinly drawn characters to read a few pages of good sex.
The first 150 pages of the book were crammed with too much information. We got to know the likes and habits of eight main characters, some of them not very likeable. There were three secondary characters in the entire book, they were all evil (presumably anyone who wasn't a main character was evil).
I've read other Cait London books and they were all right. Unless she changes her style, I won't be reading many more.
Cait London tells a page-turning tale of reconciliation -- the reconciliation of the past, the reconciliation of a family torn apart, and the reconciliation of two hearts meant to be together.
As I was reading, so much didn't make sense to me. I kept thinking I was missing something and found myself re-reading pages. There really were little pieces of information missing; poor editing perhaps?
This book is unlike the other books I've read and enjoyed by Ms Logan/London.."Sleepless" has none of the warmth and humor and cohesiveness of her other books. I've heard that sometimes other people publish books under established names in the romance field. I wonder if this is one of those cases.
If you want to see how a book with three plots can be written successfully and enjoyably (as this one should have been written), read "montana sky" by Nora Roberts.
I thoroughly enjoy reading about how people work out their problems and am thankful they are not mine. That makes the stories pure entertainment.
Hogan and Jemma can't be so much different than many that have problems and hang-ups -- but the story situation has to be left to the author. Sometimes they appeal to us and sometimes not.
Read to enjoy and if they don't appeal go on to the next one.
This is different and enjoyable.
