Image of Love Me Tonight (The Harringtons)

This novel lacks description and passion, making it nearly impossible for the reader to visualize what they’re reading. None of the characters are described physically, aside from the height of the heroine, so the reader can’t engage. Every scene, including the sex scenes, is written mechanically, devoid of any emotion, leaving the story dry and difficult to get through. Every problem presented is solved with ease and glossed over before the reader — or the characters — have a chance to process their impact.

Lawyer Judson Philips has recently lost his adoptive mother, starting him on a quest to learn the true identity of his biological parents. Roving ambassador Heather Tatum is balancing an ailing father and a future promotion that couldtake her to another country. The two team up to offer the emotional support that doesn’t currently exist in their lives. (KIMANI/ARABESQUE, Sep., 304 pp., $6.99)
