disappointing rehash of 2 films & beneath author's ability,
By A Customer
This review is from: Stranger in My Arms (Mass Market Paperback)
From one of my very favorite authors, a real dud. Kleypas does nothing original with the same plot as "The Return of Martin Guerre" and "Sommersby", the films. The hero and heroine are unbelievably perfect whereas all villains are undiluted evil. The heroine grated on my nerves and at every turn made a decision that made no sense and was against her best interests (until the very end where it should be too late and isn't, making the resolution highly unbelievable). Perhaps the most unbelievable legal proceeding imaginable (I am a lawyer). I cannot believe that this came from the same author who created Derek Craven, Logan Scott and Lawless Lily. Buy and collect this author's backlist as all of her other titles are outstanding! I have kept them all.
