**WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**
Personally, I don't find it that extraordinary, as some reviewers do, that a widow who had incontrovertible proof that her deceased husband was a louse would immediately fall for someone who had adored her for years and was everything she thought the louse was but wasn't. However much Leigh may have loved Logan, she knew he had betrayed her in the past, and while she may have chosen to stay with him, relationships are never quite the same after a partner strays. And the reader was given further clues about their lack of intimacy and how Leigh was the person doing all of the maintenance in the relationship. So all of the sudden, Leigh realizes that the person she was in love with didn't exist, and while she may grieve for her lost ideal, it wasn't real. Faced with that realization, love can vanish in an instant.
So enter Michael Valente, one of McNaught's best heroes to date. In fact, while there are a great many things to like about McNaught's writing, I find her compelling male characters to be her best strength. She has the ability to capture what most women want in a man -- strong without being a bully, tender without being a wimp, and reliable without being a bore. In short, a real, fascinating man who is capable of completely loving and appreciating a strong, successful woman without trying to control her. Sigh.Read more ›
The mystery kept me on the edge of my seat and I literally screamed out loud more than once. One friend I spoke with said she was "standing up pacing the floor as she read" because she was so extremely anxious. Any novel that can evoke that kind of response is to be venerated.
I laughed and cried, sometimes almost simultaneously, and was happily and on occasion frantically carried through the web of intrigue, cliffhangers, uncertainty, intoxication and rapture that I am sure this author wished for her readers.
The plot was an intricate weaving of captivating suspense and electrifying relationships combined to keep you on a roller-coaster ride until the last fulfilling, climactic moment.
I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Although it is a slight departure from her previous work, I think Judith McNaught hit it "out of the park" with Someone To Watch Over Me. You will not be disappointed.
Run, do not walk, to buy this book!!
Broadway actress Leigh Kendall planned on meeting her husband, Logan Manning, in a mountain cabin. However she gets lost, is hit by another car and is rescued near death. Her severe injuries do not keep her from trying to find her husband, though, as it soon becomes apparent that he is missing.
Logan has some secrets, but Leigh does too. A childhood acquaintance steps in to help her when she can trust no one else and an interesting relationship develops. Sadly, this friend is an Italian with a prison record and is rumored to have ties to the mob. While McNaught is possibly trying to show how unfair this stereotyping can be, it detracts from his characterization. Another character laboring under stereotypes is the gay Broadway director.
The minor characters are almost more likable than the major ones. McNaught fans will recognize Joe O'Hara, chauffeur/bodyguard to Matt and Meredith Farrell, running characters in her books. A sister of another favorite character also makes an appearance. Introduced here are Samantha Littleton and Mitchell McCord, detectives in the Manning case. Their interaction and sparring provide some of the most exciting moments in the book. Hopefully, they will return to solve new cases in McNaught's books.
The villain can be spotted by the middle of the book, which is where the action really takes off.Read more ›
