As a fan of Lisa Kleypas, unlike the over reviewers I was disappointed with this book.
I managed to stick with it and read to chapter 16, (the red dress and the 'fly in the ointment' best friend and promise) but had lost interest by then and didn't really care how it got sorted out. The leading lady at times needed a good shake and her 3 years old daughter carried conversations a 6 years old would be proud of, she was never only 3, especially when children in those times were kept away from adults most of the time and were more childlike than today. Therefore I found her unbelieveable when I believe I was supposed to find her huggable and cute!
Having read the other reviews I thought I'd dip in to the last chapter and to put it kindly found it sweet enough to make my teeth ache. Rather than wiping my eye as intended I was rolling them and thinking 'oh good grief' get on with it!'
This book was written some years ago and I am so pleased it was not the first book I bought by Ms Kleypas or I would have missed out on four of my most favourite romance books of all time, ie, the Wallflower series. They are definately 'keepers' and I have read them all twice and have begun again.
Where Dreams Begin is scheduled for the charity shop.
