and she likes it. But when she inherits a title and a large sum of money, everything changes. Forced to navigate high society, Mary finds herself relying on the help of one man—Ryan Summersby.
Determined not to lose her sense of self, she realizes that Ryan is the only person she can trust. But Mary’s hobbies are not exactly proper, and Ryan is starting to discover that this simple miss is not at all what he expected…but just might be exactly what he needs.
REVIEW: This is the second book of The Summersby’s series [my review of the first is here] and I’m finding myself in the same boat as I was reading the first book.
I can still see that her writing has potential, but I still feel that she needs to work on her characterization more than on her plot. The premise was well thought out, but poorly executed, and in cases such as that, the reader looses interest and abandons the story. I didn’t do that only because I committed to reading it, but it took me awhile to write this review.
I don’t like writing reviews like this because I’m trying very hard to be positive about the story I hadn’t connected with and had no vested interest in.
I read romance for the pleasure of seeing two people fall in love and work their way to their happily ever after. I enjoy plots of any kind, but it’s the characterization and chemistry between the leads that intrigues my mind and engages my senses.
In this case, my senses were let down big time. I am however determined to finish this series, which ends with ‘The Secret Life of Lady Lucinda’, in hopes that I may like at least one of this authors books.
