Witty and Rewarding,
This review is from: The Inn at Lake Devine (Paperback)
I just wanted to add my vote of support for this wonderful comic novel. Dismissals of The Inn at Lake Devine as "fluff" are, I think, unwarranted. Comedy is really hard to write. People often dismiss books they've read quickly, but presumable they're read quickly for a reason: they're enjoyable. And The Inn at Lake Devine is not just enjoyable, but well written.
The plot does indeed follow the precepts of a traditional romance, what with lovers from different backgrounds overcoming parental disapproval, but I've never read a comedy about prejudice with such style and wit. And Natalie Marx is a fantastic heroine -- indignant and self righteous, with just enough self awareness and eye for detail to make the whole thing a delight. Highly recommended
