    A huge Delinsky fan, I found this book s plot too simple, nothing ever happened, it was justof the same for over 300 pages Reminded me of Danielle Steel s Bold Eagle The couple s meeting and falling in love was too swift at first sight basically they were talking to each other like they knew each other forever, not common in daily life instead of a developing thing which isinteresting The guy character seemed to be OK with putting his life on hold indefinitely for his love A huge Delinsky fan, I found this book s plot too simple, nothing ever happened, it was justof the same for over 300 pages Reminded me of Danielle Steel s Bold Eagle The couple s meeting and falling in love was too swift at first sight basically they were talking to each other like they knew each other forever, not common in daily life instead of a developing thing which isinteresting The guy character seemed to be OK with putting his life on hold indefinitely for his love this is a vigorous 30 year old sexual male we are talking about , a littlespine wouldn t have hurt his manliness

    Above all else, Barbara Delinsky is a storyteller This is a gut wrenching novel about finding happiness The greed of politics gets in the way of love and family Corruption finally brings it all to a head.

    Not sure why I finished it Could be a Harlequin romance.

    When Danica Lindsay buys a house in Maine she hopes it will be a retreat for herself and her workaholic husband, Blake Michael Buchanan, her neighbor is kind, warm, interesting and single Gradually their friendship evolves into a romance but Dani has been raised to have a strong sense of obligation There is no year given but based on the lack of cell phones and the central issue with Blake it is probably the early 1960s I figured out the issue long before the author revealed it Good enough When Danica Lindsay buys a house in Maine she hopes it will be a retreat for herself and her workaholic husband, Blake Michael Buchanan, her neighbor is kind, warm, interesting and single Gradually their friendship evolves into a romance but Dani has been raised to have a strong sense of obligation There is no year given but based on the lack of cell phones and the central issue with Blake it is probably the early 1960s I figured out the issue long before the author revealed it Good enough to read and finish but not one of the author s best Turns out it s a reissue of one of her early books

    so long Took the author long enough to resolve everything Regarding other comments that it s similar to a Harlequin novel, Barbara Delinsky started her career with Harlequin Silhouette type books This book was originally written in 1986, but it still held my interest for the most part, though about half way through, I was getting frustrated with Danica s choices, though admirable, I guess Doubt there are many men such as Michael out there he had the patience of a saint Glad Danica finally so long Took the author long enough to resolve everything Regarding other comments that it s similar to a Harlequin novel, Barbara Delinsky started her career with Harlequin Silhouette type books This book was originally written in 1986, but it still held my interest for the most part, though about half way through, I was getting frustrated with Danica s choices, though admirable, I guess Doubt there are many men such as Michael out there he had the patience of a saint Glad Danica finally stepped up before the last chapter

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Such a great idea for a plot, but it just dragged on and on Couple that with the homophobia and an abundance of sex scenes, I barely made it to the end I am all for a good sex scene or two, but it truly got ridiculous Did Danica and everyone else really have to grimace or shudder when the idea that someone is gay is mentioned She cheated on her husband, but HE makes HER throw up It was really disappointing.


  8. Ada Iaboni Ada Iaboni says:

    Based in a time of no cell phones and other hang ups, this story was a true romance.A woman that, even thought is pretty much ignored by her husband, falls in love with another man, but can t brake the vows she made to her husband.Much happens, before she s able to move on.A little sappy and for the 90s, when it was based, there were several things that were far fetched Some wereapt for the 1950s.But an enjoyable story all the same.


  9. Susan Susan says:

    The book was GOOD So many ups and downs.She wants a loving husband, but her husband isn t having it He s involved in his job. PERIOD.She wants a baby to love but he doesn t even touch her But then they bought another house I guess you call it a vacation house But she lives in it most of the time, while he s at work in another state I won t mention her neighbor I think you ll love it.

    DisappointingNot up to par for this author Story line totally predictable and it seemed never ending I plodded through, was relieved to have finished and was shocked when I saw the authors name I read so many it s hard to remember Just not what I expected based on the high caliber of her previous books.
