I have read, and loved, several other books by Fiona Walker. I can't figure out where the magic went here: either my tastes have changed greatly in the intervening years, or this book doesn't come up to her usual best-seller standard.
The story dragged with slow pacing and, as mentioned in other reviews, the simmering attraction between Ellen and Spurs was stretched out for way too long. This is a 300 page book that lasts 530.
While the minor characters were fun, Spurs left me completely un-thrilled. Who the heck has grey eyes, anyway? Ellen's repeated "fanning of her T-shirt" irritated me too. Either this was characterization gone wrong, or the author ran out of ways to tell us the protagonist felt hot. Nor was I impressed that a book by a famous author from a respected publisher made it into print with typos.
Sorry to say, I gave up halfway through. But I'll still be trying other Walker novels.
