4.0 out of 5 stars Sommersby Revisited - This Time Happily Ever After, 18 Jun 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Stranger in My Arms (Mass Market Paperback)
Lisa Kleypas did her revision on the movie Sommersby (which itself is based on a book which title I forgot) in this happily-ever-after book. It is an easy read, detailing a woman's confusion after her supposedly-dead husband showed up on her doorstep, new and improved.
Anyone who remembered the original book or Sommersby will find this book very familiar as most of this story remains faithful to the original.
However halfway through the story I really get annoyed with the heroine's constant "Don't-touch-me-I-hate-sex-but-hey-he-surely-looks-good" attitude. It gets very tiring when she kept this attitude up to the two-third of the book. And I find the other characters unworthy of Ms Kleypas' talent - surely she can do better than these stereotypical characters? i.e. the abusive and evil husband of poor sister-in-law, abused woman who refuses to leave abusive hubby because "she loves him" (give me a break), and two meanest characters to ever play Evil Stepmummy and Stepdaddy to our heroine. I wish Ms Kleypas has created more three-dimensional characters.
As it is, I'd give this book three and a half-stars.
