Well written, as Hatcher usually does. I think the plot was a bit lighter than usual.

Sex factor: Any age kid could read it :). Reinforcing again, a good book can be written without the sex.

I'm not sure why Howard thought this was a CBA book. It is not a Christian Fiction book. There is erotic sex in it - designed to be so.

The plot is set at the Chicago World's Fair - it really only plays a small part. The most interesting and heart re...more
Fair Play by Deeanne Gist
" I have been an avid reader of Gist's books ever since her novel debut. She has always been teetering on the edge of edgy. This one topples over that edge. I have to say as well that Gist usually does her homework when it comes to research. This on... " Read more of this review »

Francine Rivers, as usual, has the ability to draw you in to her character. This book wasn't out of my sight until I finished it. It was a book of poor choices made mostly out of a poor sense of self-worth. It is a book of mercy and grace, almost unr...more

This book was set in an era I didn't enjoy and had a bit too much historical detail for me. It took me about a quarter of the book until it " caught" me. I was frustrated at the beginning because there were too many characters introduced. Part way th...more

I found the title cuter than the story line. I found the book a light read. Switching characters and repeating the end of one chapter in the beginning of the next was cumbersome. Parts of the story seemed out of place for the time frame. (Heck for on...more

I enjoyed this book, as I have the entire series. Roseanna White does well with mysteries. Although you know who the bad guys are, my interest was held in seeing how it was going to play out. I love the family connection that flows throughout this en...more

I found this book to be one I didn't want to put down. The characters were well developed, there was a good tension between the two main characters, and it wasn't full of mushy romance.

As I said in other reviews, I will rate the sex factor. This book...more
