Borrowed the above from the library ‘cos two of my girlfriends raved about Judith McNaught. And, boy, am I hooked.
Don’t know if it’s my preference for historical romances, but this novel has a nice balance of lush details and character development to keep me peeled to its pages for ten delightful hours, broken only by meal preparations. It helped that I read this over the Lunar New Year festive holidays, when I had plenty of time to read undisturbed for hours. The only bit which didn’t quite work for me was the big-MIS in the last two chapters. It was one of the weaker plot points of the book, IMO.
Still, I’ll probably borrow a few more McNaught romances before I decide which book to buy. I have a feeling some of hers would be keepers. I quite like the cover of this paperback edition that I picked up. The redhead with the dimple and ‘come-hither look’ certainly appears a lot more inviting than the cover design of the reissue with the scenery of a country estate.
