I want to like oldies by Essie Summers. The synopsis sounds good but I just don't like her writing style. I feel like I'm taking a class and am listening to a lecture on history, geology, flora/fauna or poetry. It's interesting info but not what I'm looking for in a romance.

This is one of those stories of being judged for the sins of your sibling or in this case your half sibling. I could not help remember this wonderful quote by Einstein while reading this book, " Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods." The book is a wonderful read.

She has recently had her own disappointment in love, a holiday romance with a charming New Zealander who turns out to be a well known writer of thrillers.

When she arrives in New Zealand, the first person she meets is Lisa's brother-in-law Conrad Josefsen, the man who broke her heart wh...more
