Nancy Atherton is a dark-haired American with a generally unwrinkled face, a beaming smile, and and hazel eyes, who lives in a plain house in Colorado Springs. She comes from a large, gregarious family (five brothers and two sisters!) and enjoys socializing as much as she enjoys solitude.



it was labelled as a mystery but seemed to be more of a romance/fairytale to me. A bit too much in the cosy line for my taste

Sweet and amusing.

I can't decide if I deserve to be publicly flogged for picking up another of these stupid books or if I deserve pity and compassion for deciding to put it down after 72 pages...

As soon as I read the description, I groaned. Really? Another story in which the fabulously disgusting Lori almost but not quite leaves her husband and kids for some dude who is ironically but of-course-ly drooling over her. Yuck. So sick of her. Why do I read these????

Why did the author even give Lori a husband and kids? She never spends any time with them. I stopped at page 72 and then read the last few pages. Super boring storyline and I have a big issue with Lori's mentality that it's ok for her and her husband to have "wandering eyes"....somehow this makes their relationship "stronger"?? I once read that Atherton says she bases Lori on herself. Guess I'm sad for her then... I really gotta be done. Really. Must be. Can't take it anymore. Sad, too, because Atherton's stories are fun, well-written, spunky...just can't stand the character of Lori. Maybe we could write her out, hmmm?… (mais)

Whhhhhyyyyyy do I read these. Ugh. I am so done.

Lori is supposedly soooooo in love with her husband yet she fantasizes about every relatively attractive and eligible man she meets. Crawls into bed with him...really? Why did I read this.

Adam seems to accept weird things too readily. Other characters were flat. I can't stand Lori. I don't even like me right now. Stay away from these books!!! Learn from me!!!!
