Up until reading this second instalment from the Willow Park series, Nobody's Angel had been one of my favourite books I've read this year. Now it has been slightly eclipsed by Nobody's Fool!

Josh Hunter...what can I say? A smart and intelligent man. He's a player and likes a challenge and Holly Partridge is worth the chase. The pair know each other from high school, when the Partridge family lived briefly in Willow park. Whilst they both have a lasting memory of each other, it isn't a good one for Miss Partridge!
In the intervening years, Holly has spent her time living in Canada, juggling work whilst caring for her younger twin sisters; A burden she used to share. Now she's back in Chicago, looking for her missing twin-sister who is bipolar and needs the help of the man whom she's despised since a teen.

The author has a knack of writing complex characters, incorporating challenging plot lines and yet manages to keep the flow of the storyline fluid. The protagonists are well developed and likeable as are the secondary characters. Josh is compassionate and sees the potential Holly has to move on in her life, even if she can't see it herself. It's heart-warming to see her realise that she can achieve her goals and that she needs to think of herself first and foremost instead of always putting the needs of others before her own.
I found it interesting observing the dynamics of the Hunter family too; in particular Donna's interaction with Lucy and Holly. I also like that we get a glimpse into how Richard and Lucy's life has evolved since their story in book one.

Although Nobody's Fool is a standalone book, I highly recommend that you read Nobody's Angel. Now I'm eagerly waiting for the third instalment - Nobody's Princess.
