STRAIGHT TO THE HEART
Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance
The most successful sections in this novel of rekindled romance crackle with emotion and intensity. The Vancouver setting and quirky characters mesh well with the author's comic style.
Eric and Tess have a history, and it's not pretty. One night long ago, they did and said some things they've since regretted. When they meet again, they both have bridges to rebuild.
Tess, with her smart mouth and insecurities, charms. But despite many fine moments and snappy one-liners, problems with pacing and plotsuch as gratuitous scenes and painfully drawn out and predictable dialoguebog down this story. Tess and Eric's roadblocks to love aren't always convincing. (Sep., 352 pp., $5.99)
