Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I had seen this book on different blogs and goodreads and thought, Hm. that sounds like a nice book. Perhaps someday I will read it.
Then. My friend lent it to me. I went out as soon as I had finished and bought a copy.
This book was so good and I have read it... like five times since last summer. Literally. And not the hyperbolic literally... the literally literally.
Okay. What I love about this book is:
A lot of romantic suspense
Great characters (especially the main guy. He's one of my literary crushes, for sure). And the girl -- not obnoxious at all. LOVE that. I will , but don't enjoy, reading a book with an obnoxious main girl. I don't like sitting there thinking, this guy deserves so much better.
CLEAN. I cannot stress this enough. I think that having a great kiss be your romantic climax is much more thrilling and much nicer to read than a pervy ol' sex scene... That's just me. I could read this book in public and never worry that someone would see what I am reading.
A nice story outside the love story. There's not a lot outside the love story, but there are some plot bits that keep one interested as well.
This book is great and I am glad I own it. Whenever I'm feeling like a "regency era romance", but don't want to take the time to read P&P or something (this book is a pretty quick read) I pull this out.
NOT a waste of time.
