The review --
Although I dearly love romance books, this one didn't quite click with me. I found the female lead to be a bit too much of a naïve chatterbox, for one thing; and it sort of lacks spark and sizzle. It's a solid, standard romance book; but it has the feel of a continued series. It was like I had missed a part of the story somewhere in another book. Overall, it's a good book, but the whole family conflict thing could have been explained more. Like I said, it had the feel that there were . . . . parts missing? Blanks here and there? It just didn't really click for me. Not a bad book, but not a great one either.
