5.0 out of 5 stars What an ending!, 20 July 2010
This review is from: Love in the Afternoon (Hathaways) (Mass Market Paperback)
When I read Winn and Marripan story which was somewhat lacking emotional depath and Leo and Cathrine story in 'married by morning' I was beginning to despair the Lisa Kleypas lost her touch. I was not impressed and I didn't like Leo story but she proved me wrong and bounced back with vengeance. I bought this book in New York JFK airport bookshop coming back from my holiday and by the end of my flight I was finished two third of the story. I didn't even take a nap and it was a night flight. There squeezed in middle between an oversized man and sleeping lady that I found LK magic.

This is the story of Beatrix the youngest of the Heathway family and the animal lover. Reader of the series will recognise her from her consistent appearances the story and from her famous pet ferret and hedgehog. Beatrix start a correspondent with a Captain Christopher Phelan after the girl he wrote original to refused to corresponded with him for the fact he write about war and not fashionable. In simple terms she start writing letters to him under her friend's name but everything in the letter is Beatrix. Of course they both fall in love with each but after a while Beatrix start to feel guilty for the deception and send him a letter telling him that she is not who he think she is and asking him to come and find her. After the war Christopher come back from war a changed man and determined to find the women he fall in love with and marry her. As you can imagine everything unravel from.

I loved this story as Beatrix direct and honest emotion is the excellent foil for Christopher serious character. Christopher has to deal with the aftermath of the Crimean war, loss of his friends, his brother death and his love live. For the fans of Heathway there is a recurrence with the family in this book which bring this story full cycle. Also LK presented couple of new characters which I believe they will get their own story in the future.

This is the style I expected from LK. Very satisfying and deeply moving story. I found myself crying, laughing out load and cheering all the way and smiling for the big ending.

I can't recommend it enough
