One thing that caught my attention was that after a huge storm Elmer's motorcycle just had some leaves blown on it. With trees falling and all kinds of winds, lightening etc. I would have thought the bike would have sustained more damage. I guess it was just what they needed!
I enjoyed the back story of "what" inspired Elmer's work. I felt I could understand Elmer better. I was cracking up at how Barbara had all these ideas by the time she went back to work on Monday what Elmer would want and how things would go. I was laughing. I laughed when she took charge of the conversation when called into his office. This was a cute, fun and a light romance!
What a read! This was a well written fantastic romance. Barbara wants nothing more than for Elmer, her boss, to take notice of her, and not just for her accounting skills she possesses at work. She tries to lure him in all the time with outfits she wears and her mannerisums at work, but nothing seems to do the trick. She finally decides the only way he will take note of her is if she can bring him evidence that the Warden's Lantern mystery that is by the old prison is really paranormal in nature. He doesn't believe in such things, but she is sure she can get proof and will then get his attention. Well, things don't go quite as planned and she ends up having to be saved by Elmer from a picker bush, rain, and a humongus thunderstorm with high winds, hail, and lightening. While protecting Barbara from the storm Elmer has feelings knocked loose in him he never knew could or did exist for her. Can a thunderstorm and some paranormal events bring two people together? Will they survive the thunderstorm to find out? Is the "paranormal" activity Barbara came to prove was real, really there and real or is it completely explainable?
The plot is so cliche it's perfect. If that makes sense. It's man and woman in peril and then feelings start to fly around, but are they real or just from the moment of peril? I just loved this read and thought it to be a good, quick, but romantic read all in one with great characters. I could just picture the events happening and could visualize the characters of Elmer and Barbara as they try to fair through the storm and sort out things after, not only about their feelings, but also about the "paranormal" goings on that Barbara says are true. Nice love story without the love scenes that tend to occur with most romance books/stories now. Not that sometimes some lovin' in a book isn't perfect too, but this is a good romance to read that doesn't have all that, if that isn't for you or you want something just plain old romantic with a paranormal twist.
I liked the way the two characters kept doubting themselves and second-guessing the other's actions.
The way Barbara first described Elmer, I thought I wouldn't like him but that soon changed.
I just wish the male lead was named something other than Elmer.
All the research the author did, concerning weather, also showed.
The story was the right length too and kept me interested to the end.
