Sarah has been through humiliation and is wary of getting involved with a rake. Adam is a rake who dallies with widows and married women. Unlikely that they will be together, right? This is a fun read. I like Sarah, her sisters and SIL, Megs.
On a side note, these royal families do have a lot of time for leisure and celebrations, do they?
I love the continuation of the little stories in this book. I just had to go back to the earlier ones when the scenes merge.
All stories are good but I like the last one, that is Sophia and Max, the best. It feels like 12 years though is too long to have them in separate lives.
The thief? I had an inkling about it even before it was revealed.
I like how the characters seem to understand each other well. Gemma’s long suffering experiences has made her wary but it has also made her stronger. Sam is so sweet and loving. That part when she was framed for theft, during the fireworks, I wanted to stop reading because I didn’t want to read about her being thought of as a bad person.
Her aunt is a paragon of patience and understanding and the perfect companion who not only protects her but knows her well too.
I love, love, love this book. 4.5/5 ⭐️
At first it was a puzzle why there are so many characters but they have slowly came together to make the story come alive. All of them, including the not so pleasant ones are important to the plot.
The characters, their flaws, their good side and everything about them sort of grew on me like friends who started early on till a deeper relationship has been formed. I smiled a lot as well as cried with them.
I somehow knew some twists will happen like who is going to rent Carla’s extra room. I felt that Leni had been hiding something from the rest of the gang. I figured out early on who was pilfering Molly’s valuables. Harvey and his surprises were a bonus.
This is about facing your fears, believing in yourself, letting go, moving on, trusting others and loving unconditionally.
Notice the time stamp when I was done reading.
Hot Blooded by Lisa Jackson. I tried to guess who the killer/stalker was but I got it wrong first. My second guess was right but there was a surprise twist or maybe two that made the story plot good enough. I don’t know if there is a book where the missing brother is featured.
