End all the books by this author Lorna writes in an engaging humorous but heart stirring style That s a talented combination and I truly enjoyed While Love StirsI love that Charlotte is an independent woman Educated With ideas of her own about what she wishes to do with her life Rare during that time period but very relevant and relatable to today and to me new graduate that I am Joel had my heart rom the first Poor Lewis never had a chance though I wish him Poor Lewis never had a chance though I wish him because he proved himself a real sweetheart But strong Joel s OCD tendencies were hysterical I even texted a riend midway through reading the book that I d never encountered a hero with his need or organization Charlotte on the other hand is a Seven Days, Seven Dinners free spirit and she is not afraid to speak her mind The combination madeor highly entertaining reading What I Didn t Like As MuchAbout two thirds through the book the pacing picked up significantly and A Northern Light for a while Ielt a little lost with all that was happening A lot was going on that If You're Missing Baby Jesus: A True Story that Embraces the Spirit of Christmas felt slightly contrived but romances are a hit with me when there is an external conflict besides the couple s ahem combustibiltiy I enjoyed that this author threw in so many conflicts like thatI ve enjoyed theew books of Lorna s that I ve read in the past and I recommend this one A gem among Christian iction to be sure and going on my keeper shelf Food is Charlotte Gregory s life It s nutritional values as well as it s being the source of her income hopefully has made her a champion of ood And No Bull Headed no bull headed named Joel Brooks is going to tell her she doesn t know what she s talking about Because she does And he doesn t Let him make his Anne Perrys Christmas Crimes (Christmas Stories, false assumptions of her history and knowledge If he chooses to be a near sighted orderly neatreak that his problem But then why does her mind orever stray to the well meaning doctorOh what to say After a disastrous streak of book choices I thought this was going a disastrous streak of book choices I thought this was going be the title to break that It wasn t I thought at irst it was going to be pretty good but gosh was I wrong It s a pretty clean read but the plot and characters are not very strong They are just a tad stereotypical Midway through the book they were even beginning to annoy me Charlotte and Joel are White Water forever butting heads moments before andor after growing mushy over each other signal to begin rolling eyes So yeah rather annoying I probably would have enjoyed it if the author had chosen toocus on Charlotte s story only and another career I mean I ve half the time inadvertently picked up so many books in 2013 and in the last year that have either The Slave Dancer female cooks actresses oremale detectives and their inability to be accepted because of their gender It s really being beat to death by writers Instead Charlotte s younger sister also has lengthy segments scattered throughout the book and it was very distracting At that particular moment I was interested in Special Agent following Charlotte s life and had no interest whatsoever in Tessa s desireor the limelight But hey what doesn t appeal to me usually appeals to a good deal of people I m just Sleep with the Fishes finicky If you re considering this book go ahead and dive in You ll probably enjoy itDISCLAIMER In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR Part 255 Guides
