This book horribly boring. The plot and characters were so thin you could see through them. You learn nothing about the characters except how angry/scared they are--not even why they are supposed to love each other so much. I have read several other Elizabeth Lowell's and this book seemed like it was written by another, much less talented author. If you must read it, check it out of the library.
A bit, well, tepid really .....
Elizabeth Lowell has written some wonderful novels .... of the few I have read, I have really enjoyed Amber Beach, Pearl Cove, etc .... but when I started to read this book I realised quite soon into the book that it wasn't up to ELs usual standards!
Alana (our leading lady) is quite pathetic and Rafe Winter (her ex fiance ... who Alana thought was dead) while "nice" uses the line: "It's alright wildflower, I've come to take you home" far too often ... it starts to be a little irritating.
All in all, I think I don't like this story because amoung other things: the males talk condescendingly to Alana, as though she is an idiot (i.e. the conversation is easy enough to interpret but Alana is of course ignorant and confused ... and misses the most obvious thigns happening around her).
I absolutely looooooooooooove romance novels, so I am not dissappointed because anything in the book is romantic, rather that the storyline is rather tepid ... perhaps even boring in parts. This may be a result of reading EL books that are full of suspense, interesting factual information, and excellent and interesting storylines full of romance, hot sex scenes, and witty conversations! ... which this novel lacks.
This doesn't meet, in my opinion, ELs normally high standards! But, if you're a keen EL novel lover, I guess you might enjoy this, but certianly not as much as other novels that EL has written.
If this is your first EL, then this is certainly the worst EL novel I have ever read .... perhaps you should borrow it from the library before you think of purchasing it!
Good reading, Kristina
Forget Me Not? Forget this book!
What a waste of time. This book was nothing but complete drivel. The heroine (if she could be called that) was annoying, beyond fragile, as if she were the only person in the world to suffer disappointment. The hero was too good for her, but coddled her annoyingly so.
Don't waste your time. Pure ...
