There are so many things to enjoy in this light-hearted story: the warmth of the lead characters, who find love later in life; the unhurried pace of the storytelling; the amusing linguistic and cultural misunderstandings encountered by the American women while in Britain.
There were fleeting moments when I felt a little confused because I hadn’t read Messages from Henry, but the unusual pigeon-fancying setting, the gentle innocence of the characters and their burgeoning romance swept me along.
This is a cozy, romantic tale with which to curl up in front of the fire on a cold night.
It concerns the life-choices of two American women who fall for British men. All are pigeon lovers, and we learn a bit about pigeon-racing along the way.
It will likely appeal more to the American reader than to the British reader, since the quaint English expressions which so perplex the two ladies will be already familiar to those of us from this side of the Pond, hence we do not get to join in the 'joy of discovery'. Some of the travels around the various towns and sights, and details of British food, will also be well-known to many Brits who might be tempted to skim a few passages.
The book is, however, well put together and the storyline unfolds patiently and sensitively. It would be difficult not to like the characters and to root for them - especially the hopeless romantics among us.
So get yourself a mug of cocoa (or your preferred poison) and grab a copy of 'Where Love Takes You'. While it might lack the drama of the first book, parts of it will have you reaching for the tissues.
I do like a good thriller. I also like a good whodunit or a crime story. But this is none of these. It is, however, the story of two American friends and two English friends who life throws together and their stories. A sub-plot (marginally, sometimes you think it's the main story) is the tale of two racing pigeons owned by one of the characters.
It's a feel-good story, where everything comes up okay in the end, the exact details of which I'll leave for the reader to find out. But you do get involved with the characters and want to know how things pan out for them, which gives you the incentive to read on. It also tells you that the writing is good and the characters are well drawn. Mostly the emphasis is on the female characters and so perhaps this is a book that may appeal more to female readers, but I have to say this male reader thoroughly enjoyed it.
Does it tax and stretch the reader? Not greatly, but that obviously isn't the plan. Does it grab the reader's attention and involve him (her)? Yes. So this book is about enjoyment. Which I think brings this little review full circle. Read it - you'll enjoy it.
Lots of character details and locational integrity as a result of a truly collaborative approach to writing by Ms Scarberry and Mr Potts.
Who knew a pigeon could bring so many people together? Recommended.
And as the love affairs flourish so interest in Henry's attributes comes from the English charmer who races pigeons back home. The story picks up apace when we cross the Atlantic and discover the fancy world of pigeon fanciers' racing events.
As Henry shows what he's made of so the reader will discover the wonders of the English way of life and amusing confusing language. The love story is set at a gentle pace with a few thrilling moments involving our hero Henry to make the heart flutter.
This FVE STAR romance is a joy to read for those who want a more gentle pace of life. Highly recommended.
