Jilly Jones is a cute character. I too have always dreamed of owning a bookstore. But the story was just not real and the characters quite silly. Throughout the book they talk of propriety and society's rules and the do's and don'ts...yet she has her father's former valet living with her in one of rooms of this bookstore. Even with her rooms on the upper level, this would have ruined her reputation and ruined her business.
The story begins with her already in her bookstore set up with her father's former valet - someone who reminds me of Carson Kressley (Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) with his wild bejeweled shoes and jackets. It doesn't really go into details of her marriage and why she left her husband. Living in the house just down the street from her bookstore is a retired Captain Stephen Arrow who is just home after years at sea. He is living like the typical bachelor with loud parties at night and women in and out at all hours.
Jilly comes across as prudish almost at first, but suddenly just a day or so after making his acquaintance, she decides to accept his invitation along with her friend (father's former Valet) to his house for a play of some sort. Once there she seems to just lose her mind and acts as ridiculous as the rest of the men. An odd scene and out of character for her so it would seem and did not flow with the rest of the story.
They go about trying to save the street since it's considered a bad luck address and have one catastrophe after another. She finally is discovered by her husband and taken back to the country. Captain Arrow follows her, sneaks in her window and has sex with her, declines her idea to run away to America and admits they have no future and leaves the way he came in...the window.
Just stop. Please. It just goes from one silly outlandish escapade to another. Save your pennies - this one is boring with a chance of not finishing.
The reason I decided to review this book is because I almost didn't purchase it and I'm glad I did. If you are looking for a historical romance that is full of depth and/or historical facts then this isn't the book for you. Even though the characters in this book have some serious problems this is more of a light romp.
After reading the first two 'Impossible Bachelor's books I could hardly wait for this one. Each of the titles in this series can be read and followed without reading the others but if you start with 'When Harry met Molly' you may feel more invested in the bachelor hero's. While I felt 'Cloudy With a Chance of Marriage' started out a bit slow in comparison to the others it wasn't long before I was fully engrossed.
Congratulations to Kieran Kramer on a job well done. The next title in this series 'If You Give a Girl a Viscount' is going on my "Must Buy" list now. Romance Readers this would be a great book to lay on the beach with. Reading about the people in this cloudy little neighborhood put me in a very sunny mood.
