Intro: I’ve had a bad day. Nothing went right. Everything went wrong. I needed something to cheer me up and I figured a Caroline Linden book couldn’t hurt. And it didn’t. It was excellent. I loved it.
Heroine: Penelope-This girl can hold a grudge like nobody’s business. I wavered between wanting her to let it go and supporting her in her grudge holding. I settle for a nice middle ground. I did find her to be a completely likable heroine even with her faults.
Hero: Benedict-He was the epitome of misunderstood hero. He was a good guy with a terrible father and much of his bad behavior stems from that. I loved him. He was a sweet hero with some flaws and mistakes along the way.
Chemistry: Penelope and Benedict were so perfect. They definitely had a history and some angst together. But I think part of what is amazing about the both of them is that they sort of grew up throughout the book and moved on from their past together.
Conclusion: Caroline Linden never lets me down. This book was amazing and I loved everything about it. I think I need to go back and reread the earlier books in this series because I don’t think I appreciated them as much as I should have.
Caroline Linden was born a reader, not a writer. She earned a math degree from Harvard University and wrote computer software before turning to writing fiction. Ten years, twelve books, three Red Sox championships, and one dog later, she has never been happier with her decision. Her books have won the NEC Reader’s Choice Beanpot Award, the Daphne du Maurier Award, and RWA’s RITA Award. Since she never won any prizes in math, she takes this as a sign that her decision was also a smart one. Visit her online at www.carolinelinden.com.
