Recommended to Rachel by: it was sitting right in front of me!
Read in September, 2008

Okay, it was sitting at the desk where I work, and my self control is pathetic. I cannot resist a fiction novel when temptation persists.
Lori Wick has this knack for writing love stories that make me wonder what world she's living on, cuz it isn't planet earth. Now on the bright side her stories are always clean, and the characters have great value systems and what have you, but I have read much better from her than this. It's not so much that the story was bad per se, just that it was so gosh darn 'mushy'. Sickly sweet. (too much, take it back!)
I love great literature, and if that's what you're in search of with a hankering for romance, then I suggest Jane Austin. Lori Wick writes 'brain candy' it takes no effort to read it and I'm sure she pumps out the stories quickly, I kind of wish she'd take more time. I find the conversation stilted and characters sadly predictable. However I still read the whole thing, so that either tells you that there is something there after all, or that part of me is girly enough to devour a love story. (I shame myself. And to think I could have used that time to do homework!)

Hanna so then it's not very believable fiction?

Worse, it's not even believable romance.
