3.0 out of 5 stars Loose ends stumps a potential satisfactory read, 5 Jun. 2005
This review is from: Love Lessons (Mass Market Paperback)
Cheryl Holt constructs a compelling read with vibrant characters. This novel promised much and did deliver to a large extent. However, there are glaring gaps that reduces enjoyment of the story. James is complex and darkly grappling with major issues in life. The novel allows too little follow-through to allow character development and resolution of some of the issues. A clear example is the complicated relationship with his father. Much is made of the tangles of the relationship and how acutely it impacts on his life, but the issue remains a loose end. Abigail is a determined and courageous woman daring to go where she has never been before, when she arranges 'Love Lessons' with James. The erotic dalliance soon takes on overtures of lasting love. This is more or less it. Abigail, of noble birth, then changes overnight from a contained woman impressed enough with her status in life to 'cut' James, not of noble birth, in public (in the parlance of the time) to a vamp that overthrows this so-called status to make a public statement of their affair. Difficult to suspend disbelief to that extent, especially as there was little enough indication that her love is strong enough to support such exposing action. In addition she does not seem to feel it necessary to apologise for her earlier insensitive behaviour. A blunt ending to what should have been a satisfying read.
