The Road (Latimore Saga #1)

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  23 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
In many ways, the commanding Bruce Latimore was very like Mary's beloved late husband - tall, strong, decisive - but he needn't think that gave him the right to destroy the beauty and tranquility of her New England farm! and it was no good him suggesting marriage - because she hated him as deeply as she had loved the Colonel...

There were some points I liked about the book, some I didn't. I liked that the heroine was smart and beat the hero at law, but I found her hanging on to her husband "the Colonel" not that great since we found out she married him when she was 17 and he 51. She has two step-children one older than her and despite being 27 she behaves too old.

I also didn't like the last few pages of the book, when the hero kind of beats her and she actually behaves like a ninny in court. Overall ok

Rating: 4.25.
The first of the series. Let me make one thing clear: Yes, it fits onto 190 pages but the content makes it a full-length novel. It certainly moves like one too. Anyhoo, I loved the whole book, especially since this the FIRST book where EG does NOT have a h who thinks to herself! REALLY! The only (veryyyyyyyyyyy tiny) blip on the radar was something the H did right at the end...oh, well. Can't have it all...
Very funny - I loved Mattie...!

Not recommended. Unless you don’t mind un-pc matters and you’re like me -- glomming the books in this series.

This is the first book and it introduces the matriarch of the Latimer family, Mary Kate. She meets her future husband Bruce and his adorable 6 year old daughter when Bruce decides to come to her town and settle once-and-for-all the delay in his big construction project. TheH/h are set up as adversaries as, unbeknownst to Bruce, it is due to Mary’s legal counsel and interference that work
