3.0 out of 5 stars Confused and disappointed!, 24 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Christmas Eve At Friday Harbour: Number 1 in series (Friday Harbor) (Paperback)
I own all of Lisa Kleypas's historical books and decided it was time for me to try her contemporary novels. This one was advertised at the end of another book of her's 'Love in the Afternoon' with a sneak preview (a few pages from the book itself). It sounded interesting so i bought it. The first thing i noticed was that the Sneak preview appeared no where in the actual book, it was completely different. Secondly the book was barley 200 pages long, which is stange for a Kleypas book. And thirdly, the back of the book claims to a completely different story. Apparently Maggie introduces Mark to Shelby which is'nt true. He was already with her before he met Maggie. To top it all of, Amazon has an entirely different description for this book. Utterly confused! However....Like all of Lisa's book, i enjoy her writing. She has an amazing way of describing places and people, that you almost feel part of the story yourself. Mark and Maggie are excellent lead characters, you can sense the attraction between them the moment they meet. This would of been an amazing book if the story had just had more content in it, you feel like she could of squeezed alot more into this book, especially steamy scene's which we all love because there is only one and its at the end, with barely a page to it's name.
Despite this, I'm still a big fan of Lisa's books and The Nolan family have intrigued me, i do look forward to reading about the other two brothers, I just hope that its a better result than this one.
