Beginning Babble: I have been a bit remiss with my reviews for the most part. I have had the worst writer's block that I have ever had. Writing a single review has been a big giant pain. I think it was just a phase because I seem to be over it. But I did love this book so very much so this review was pretty easy to write because it's so gushing.
Heroine: Sophie-Usually when I come across heroines who happen to be talented at something, it ends up grating on my nerves because they keep trumpeting it. It tends to verge on the “Mary Sue” but not with Sophie. She was one of the more well-developed heroines I have ever come across. She had a really great emotional depth to her that I really loved.
Hero:Robin-I loved Robin. He was just such a great hero even though the situation he was in was pretty terrible and, on a not so great hero, would have made me dislike him. I loved how he buckled down when his wife returned and took care of his responsibility even if he had to sacrifice his relationship with Sophie.
Chemistry: This was an angsty one in a not so bad way. It wasn't painful to get through even though they had their moments. I just loved how Sophie and Robin acted like two mature adults. They didn't throw fits or have an epic big misunderstanding even though their situation would have warranted it. They also had their sweet moments and just the right amount of angst to make it interesting.
Ending Babble: I just loved this book to bits and pieces. I loved both Sophie and Robin. They had such perfect chemistry and worked so well together. They had a deep connection that was both gut-wrenching and sweet at the same time (if that's even possible). The pacing of the story was spot-on. It was slow but it wasn't watching the grass grow type of slow. It was perfect---I could go on and on about this one—so I am just going to say that Pamela Sherwood is going on the auto-buy list.
