This is the second novella in a three book series. Unfortunately, the main characters were pretty flimsy. They started out as one thing and progressively became less of what they started out to be. I understand that characters need to grow but they merely changed only to serve the romantic story.
The woman was a determined business person. She stood up for herself and wasn't afraid to speak her mind to make things happen for herself. She develops into a worried, unsure person, denying realities t...more

I enjoyed this book. Although it was written in 1990, which really doesn't feel that long ago to me, it avoided so many of the things that make me cringe about older books. Gideon was a bit of a macho Neanderthal, and Christine called him out on it, instead of accepting it as normal. I felt that, regardless of the things that I didn't like below, there was more story to tell here and the author ended things a bit abruptly for my tastes.

What I didn't like:

This wasn't a bad story, I just felt that it was lacking in plot and character development. Its a pretty simple read for a basic story without much fleshing out but it still has some potential.

Not quite enough.

Not quite enough.

Ended too abruptly. Wanted to read more. Like what happened, when they picked up her daughter. I. just needed a little more.

another easy read, that you could easily read in a few hours, easy escape when you need to get a way from drama of life. left easy opening for third and final book of the triolgy.
This book is two of three--all in one--written by Barbara Delinsky back in 1990, and published all together in 1999. It's amusing enough, but so damn predictable. This particular book was pretty "steamy" in parts, yet it included a teenage daughter, which sparked it up a bit.
I got this book at a used book sale; I've liked many of Delinsky's books.

I'm not a fan of the romance genre, but it was okay.
If you are looking for a romance with not much of a plot... this is a winner.
Good romance novel.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk...more
