How maddening and deceitful to have these two stories lumped under one new title `The Unexpected Husband' on the cover, with nothing else to guide you.. It seems the reader has to be a real detective not to get taken in by these deceiving tactics that get followers of these authors (Macomber is not the only one) to purchase books they might have already read. So it seems the old adage--let the buyer beware is in full force with these novels.
As for the stories they have some of the harder to like characters in all of Macomber's writings. The stories are also more predictable than usual with no unique plot turns or twists.
In `Jury of his Peers' we have headstrong and in many ways malicious Caroline who harassed Ted when they were teenagers just because he was so perfect. Of course when they meet up again after all those years, we know what will happen; but even Ted becomes an irritation not revealing anything about himself. After all the meanness and hurts to each other we finally have the ridiculous statement ..."It hurt to believe that he saw her as so insensitive." What planet is she living on, or is she just so self-centered she does not think any of her actions were insensitive?
In `Any Sunday' we have another really unlikeable lady, Marjorie, who pushes a loveable doctor away from her, just because he might identify her sorrows and bad situation with a kitten he rescued in his youth. She hasn't seen a doctor in 10 years since she was 14 and yet when a friend sends her to him, he is a GYN and it is discovered she has appendicitis - he assists in the operation. This is at a big metropolitan hospital, not a small town emergency. When does that happen? Marjorie also looks at his neat desk and sees that it is neat and knows he has a twisted mind. She's not joking either.
These wind up being two of the most irritating Macomber stories I have read even without the misleading book cover.
This book was "updated" with this release (added the use of cell phones). Unfortunately, she did not make the women more sensible and likeable.
