She'd felt sure his love was real...

Harriet Neil couldn't believe her luck. First, the secretary was unexpectedly sent on an all-expense-paid holiday to Portugal by her boss. Then on her first day at the luxurious Hotel Miramar on the Algarve Coast, she encountered the man of her dreams -- the charming and sophisticated Richard Livesey.

It was all too good to be true....

Shelves: category, revenge
I normally like a good revenge story. This isn't what I would consider one.

The majority of the book consisted of polite stilted dialogue. It was all very dry.

This is the seventh George I have read. I loved the first one of hers I read - Husband For Real - but havent liked anything else so I am giving up.

3.5 stars. I liked parts of this book, but I did find myself skimming a lot of the filler -- dinners, tours of Portugal, etc. Once the hero's attempted revenge was revealed to the heroine it became a lot more interesting, complete with the sinister serving of tripe for dinner and bloody sheets as (eventual) proof of virginity. Fairly light-hearted read because of the goofiness of the plot, definitely readable.

Catherine George was born in a village on the Welsh-English border, where the public library featured largely in her life. Her mother, who looked upon literature as a basic necessity of life, fervently encouraged Catherine's passion for reading, little knowing it would one day motivate her daughter into writing her first novel.
