Like some of the others I'm a big fan of SEP and I have every one of her books but this one is a repeat. Female character has no money, won't accept help from anyone, lives in poor conditions and falls in love with the rich handsome man. Won't let him help her or take anything from him...do you think you have heard this story before, well you have, just read her other books. Breathing Room, Natural Born Charmer, etc. I also don't know if it was the narrator or just the bad story but the interaction/attraction between Meg and Ted was missing. Ted was boring and had an unattractive personality and that is so different of how he was in Fancy Pants. There was very little chemistry between Meg and Ted and for him to get left at the alter and then 2 months later be having sex with the person who the town says "broke up the wedding" is nuts (but so is the idea that it would be Meg's fault and that an entire town would turn ugly towards her.) Also crazy that Lucy (who left Ted at the alter) thinks it is great that Meg wants to have sex with him. Really?
I normally love SEP books but I wish I had not used my credit on this one. Next time I will wait until more reviews come out before jumping in and buying something just because she wrote it. Narrator was okay...no one can replace Anna Fields she is truly missed.
