Last Night by Christina Dodd
The man in her house is a stranger to her, a danger to her, and the one man she should never love… and can’t resist.
Been wracking my brains trying to figure out how this book got on my kindle and I can't for the life of me figure it out. Maybe it was free. This is a series of short stories set in various times in the history of England with a contemporary story trying to tie it all together.
Our contemporary heroine is taking the very last tour group through a museum she loves for the very last time because as soon as the tour is finished the museum is to close. No money, you see. It leaves her in a jam as she is writing a thesis.
One has to admit that the main character in the story is this massive bed. So massive that it can never be moved. And yet we first hear that it came from the Holy Land. Then we read that this Crusader built it for his Manor, which later becomes the Museum. Then it is moved into a castle, even though it is too massive to be moved. The manor crumbled. The castle crumbled. The family was living in the Manor.
I really don't think these two authors coordinated their stories very well. However, if one decides to suspend one's critical faculties about the bed and the homes, it is entertaining. One certainly feels the contemporary heroine's love for the place and her grief at losing it.
I personally enjoyed how the start of each novella was about the tour guide discussing the previous owner's of THE BED! Then you would hear the tail and then be transported back to the time of the story the bed was about. Very unique.
Even though I figured out the ending, it was still an enjoyable journey. Please don't buy the books individually, yes, they can stand alone, but it is cheaper and a richer experience to read all 4 unique stories.
We get HEA in all novella's, mild lovemaking, no cliffhanger, some romance. I enjoyed the different time periods THE BED took us too. (ljb)
I really enjoyed all three stories and even with my nit-picking ways found no grammar errors (and for me that's great!). I get a "bump" in my reading when someone uses take instead of bring or some other error. This novel is worth every penny and every minute of reading. IT is a true joy to read! What a trip!
