Great debut for this new partnership
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Being a massive fan of both these authors and knowing how different in style their books are, I was fascinated to see how they’d work together.
Well, the answer is very well indeed. Lucy’s humour and soft touch marries perfectly with the skill Sloane has for creating well crafted drama even in the most unlikely of settings.
Perhaps Xander held onto his grudge a little bit longer than was maybe needed and Bennett took little bit too long to cut ties with his reprehensible parents, but these are minor points in what was, overall, a very nice romance.
I’m not sure I needed Aunt Lolly to live at a nudist camp but I guess she’s following in the footsteps of the Made Marian series’ Aunt Tilly, Irene and Gran by being a feisty older lady.
There’s an interesting mix of secondary characters too that I’m looking forward to finding out more about too.
