Lucky in Love

Hello, and welcome back! A little rain last night cooled things down a tad, though it’s still warmer than I’d like, especially since it’s officially fall here now. I’m ready for more of those sixty-degree days. But for now, I’ll have to settle for it not being ninety and humid, I guess. More fall-like weather will be here soon enough.

I’ve still been reading the September books like crazy, and I’m on the last of them now, though I have more to share with you before we get to that one. This time out, I have Carolyn Brown’s Lucky in Love (Sourcebooks). Rancher Beau Luckadeau is just about to get engaged to the perfect woman, and his life is looking pretty good finally. Until his neighbor’s granddaughter comes
home to the ranch with a secret she’s shared with absolutely no one. Well, okay, maybe that perfect woman isn’t the one he’d really like to spend the rest of his life with, but it seems he’s not going to ever find her again, so he’ll settle for Amanda. Milli Torres, who’s just returned home to her grandparents’ ranch, should be happy Beau doesn’t seem to recognize her from his brother’s wedding two years ago. That should make keeping her secret much easier. But things are never as easy as she’d like them to be: not only is Beau about to marry the wrong woman, but her daughter takes to Beau far too easily for Milli’s liking, and other people around them have figured out her secret with absolutely no effort at all. When Beau discovers just what
her secret is, her life is never going to be the same. Neither Beau nor Milli is very pleasant when this one begins, and I’ll admit to cringing a bit at the dialogue--okay, a lot--which seems both awkward and corny all the way through the book. I know there are people who talk this way, but I don’t necessarily want to read it. This pair can’t have a civil conversation for very
long, even when they’re actually getting along. The premise of the story was cute, but the actual reading of it was not nearly as much fun as I expected. I’m hoping I like Beau’s brother better in a few months. This one has only earned two and a half of Cupid’s five arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
