Spring Romance

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! It appears as if we might actually be moving into spring here after all, which means that I can spend my days off later this week clearing out the flowerbeds in preparation for mulching before baseball season gets into full swing. The daffodils are trying hard to fight the chill in the air and bloom, and the crocuses are fat and pretty now. This week, there are a lot of big April books being released--Feehan, Robb, Jackson--but I have two other books to share with you this time.

The Way U Look Tonight The Way U Look Tonight (Brava) by Dianne Castell is up first, with the second of her O'Fallon brothers. Keefe O'Fallon has come home to help care for his baby sister and to avoid the soap press hounding him. Callie Cahill isn't what he first thought, but that doesn't seem to stop his hormones. This one starts off busy, very busy, and stays that way throughout, making it difficult to keep track of everyone, at least for me. I think I had the same problem with the first book in the series. I also had a hard time buying into the notion that, despite Callie's job and reason for being in O'Fallon's Landing, and Keefe's resistance to that, that he could still fall for her. I wanted to like this one a lot more than I actually did, I'm afraid.

From Here To Maternity: The Second Chance\Promoted To Mom\On Angel's Wings From Here To Maternity: The Second Chance\Promoted To Mom\On Angel's Wings (Signature Select) has stories from Tara Taylor Quinn, Karen Rose Smith and Inglath Cooper, all leading the way to unexpected motherhood. I liked Karen Rose Smith's story 'Promoted to Mom' best, with April Renquist forced to choose between the promotion she's worked years to get and a family with her ex-fiance. Her dilemma felt more believable to me than Ms. Quinn's 48 year-old woman past menopause finding herself pregnant, and certainly far more cheerful than Ms. Inglath's tale of a couple who lost a daughter and are on the verge of divorce taking in a Russian orphan girl. Sure, motherhood can be difficult, but that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyable as well. Yet another reason for me to stick with Karen Rose Smith's stories when they come out every year--they're guaranteed to make you feel better at the end!

Until next time, happy reading!
