This was the first of the four romance novels I agreed to judge for a local romance writers' contest. Granted, this is Donner's first novel.

I guess this was okay for a first book. Frankly, it didn't do that much for me. But it did keep my occupied for a few hours, so it served its purpose.

I got the impression that the author wasn't sure if she wanted this to be a comedy or a serious story. Hopefully she'll improve with time. Especially since I have her follow-up book!
