Another day, another Kindle eBook which was free of charge. This means that you can get anything from a self-published vanity story with little to recommend it to a really gripping story which you'd pay good money for.
Lonely Millionaire fell somewhat in the middle. It was a predictable, sweet story with almost the entire action focused on hero and heroine and their interactions. That's fine in a romance and helps us to learn more about the characters.
Our female lead is Mandy Clayton, a woman who's had her heart bruised and who lives in a sort of seclusion running a guest house (to which few visitors come) and writes letters to a man in the Yukon, a millionaire who's searching for love. Mandy started writing the letters after her friend persuaded her to but has found herself getting more and more interested in the man to whom she is writing.
When his friend Adam Grey comes to the bed & breakfast to check out if Mandy is suitable wife material, Adam pretends he's just a random man from the Yukon coming to visit California. However, in trying to get to know Mandy he might find he gets more than he bargains for.
I enjoyed reading this story although I found there were a few implausibilities along the way - such as the way Mandy allows her almost-complete-stranger guest to take over her house, the way both of them seem to behave romantically and then pretend nothing's happened, the Yukon Millionaire's off-on romance with another potential wife to suit the plot timeline and the way that Adam doesn't come clean when he really should have. The author was trying to string along the `big misunderstanding' when I felt it had stretched beyond breaking point. However, for a free book I can't really complain.
