JUST THE MAN SHE NEEDS
Forster lays a fine foundation for her
protagonists, yet throughout the story there's one conflict after another that
pushes them further apart. All this makes the novel longer than necessary. Although Forster writes smartly about the development of a mature, business-oriented couple, there's a point when readers might want to say: "Get on with it, already!"
And since Ashton and his two brothers are focused on their business endeavors, Felicia doesn't often come first. Is it a story of business first, romance second? (KimanI/ARABESQUE, Jun., 320 pp., $6.99)
