It has been 6 long years between Jennifer's last solo effort---was it worth the wait? That's a difficult question to answer. Jennifer's writing style has changed so much since her last solo book, and so has her subject matter. It's neither a good thing nor a bad thing---it just is. I'm not thrilled with the change in directions of this book. I didn't like it when Jennifer and Bob tried to use a paranormal theme with their last collaboration and I don't like it any better with "Maybe This Time".
Andie Miller is divorced from North Archer and trying leave behind what they had together. It is now the time for her to remarry and to gain closure. She confronts North only to find out that his cousin has died and left him the guardian of two young children, AND in the possession of what appears to be a haunted house. North asks Andie to help him out, offering her a large sum of cash which will be handy to pay off her bills and pay for her up coming wedding. But once she meets the children and scopes out the house she realizes that things may not be quite as they seem.
Now the descriptions of the books claims that " What follows is a hilarious adventure in exorcism...", but I didn't find that to be so nor did I find this to be on par with Ms Crusie's usual ability to make me laugh with the comedy and bring me to tears with the romance. If you doubt she can't deliver both, then please read "Bet Me" or "Fast Women". Don't judge the rest of her work by this book. While it's not horrible and at times it's engaging and even mildly giggle worth it's just not what I could have hoped for after a drought of 6 years. Another funny and engaging read is "Agnes and the Hitman" collaboration with Bob Meyer.
I am a huge Jennifer Crusie fan but recently her books have been a bit variable. (the unfortunate Miss fortunes for example was completely unmemorable tedious and boring. It had none of the sassy humour I love from Crusie.Instead a muddled plot and so poor that I didn't bother to finish it) but "Maybe this time" I loved. It was a return to the well written well plotted author I love. I read from other reviews that it is a take on an old classic and was all the better for it. Personally I liked Alice - a Lot. I think I applaud the idea of writing a novel of her as an adult, I think??? I'll wait to be sure as cute kids don't always become sympathetic adults. But I loved this book so much I would pre-order a sequel. Well Written, Well Plotted Loved the characters welcome back Jennifer Crusie
