Miss Anthrope is a hard as nails business woman, but she has no love in her life. Although she insists it is by choice, the reader knows better, and so does everyone else.
Valerie Anthrope and her problems are skillfully drawn out with a supporting cast of likeable characters in Alex, the love interest, and Ellen, the interfering but well meaning busy body who manages to involve herself in every aspect of Valerie's life.
There is some good, funny sparky dialogue, and a nice balance of light and dark throughout. Wise uses dialogue as it should be used; to bring the narrative to life.
I especially liked the clever little prologue and the way it was picked up again at the end.
Polished and accomplished.
In the novel,Valerie Anthrope (Miss Anthrope - I loved the pun) is a young woman who runs a financial brokerage. Valerie is not only serious minded and hard working but, she can also be a bit of a bitch. She lives alone and keeps herself to herself, concluding that it is best not to care for anyone. There nevertheless resides within her a deep sadness and vulnerability.
In steps Ellen Semple, a missionary worker returned from abroad, who, in true `fairy godmother' form resolves to make Valerie her next `project. Ellen senses something is not quite right with Valerie and does her best to bring light into her darkness. She secures part-time employment in Valerie's small office. Then, believing that Valerie's outlook is due to financial difficulties, she persuades her nephew Lex Kendal, a successful businessman, to put a large contract her way. When she sees that Lex is intrigued by Valerie, she warns him off her, believing that Valerie is too fragile to handle Lex's `love'em and leave `em philosophy.' Yet Lex does not take no for an answer, and Valerie falls for him. When she discovers that he is Ellen's nephew, a fact that they deliberately hid from her, she feels deceived, let down and deeply wounded. To protect herself from future hurt she dumps Lex, almost as soon as their affair has begun.Read more ›

I'm probably not the target audience for this book (male mid 40s) but I'm not averse to a bit of chick lit, and this serves it up perfectly. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Gerald
