©2002 Susan Elizabeth Phillips; (P)2002 HarperCollins Publishers
"Phillips has created a very modern and textured tale: witty, moving, passionate and tender." (Publishers Weekly)
"Stunningly vivid descriptions and some of her most complex protagonists to date." (Library Journal)
Another good book from SEP.This is the 5th book from her I have read. Funny,sexy & witty. I travel a lot, it kept me entertained and took the drudgery out of driving.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Good old fashion core romance
our hero of course, when he has tea with the two little girls, hence the headline
This is the late great Ms Anna Fields as an AKA. "It Had to be YOU" is her all time best.
Audible, please get any and all of Ms Fields AKA recordings as in Kate Fleming.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Breathing Room by Susan ELizabeth Phillips will provide several hours of entertainment. It is a fun love story that takes place in Tuscany. It is filled with the cleaver wit and banter that is part of SEP's charm. The characters are fun to know, and the reader soon becomes involved in all of the antics that contribute to the story.
It is difficult to choose a favorite character, because they are all appealing. If I were, however, to choose just one, it would have to be Dr. Isabel Favor, the protagonist. She is strong, and funny; and while she is down on her luck, having lost everything that she deems important, she picks herself up, searches for resolve and remains both spirited and generous. The supporting characters are better for knowing her, and she, in turn, is better for knowing them.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. If you are in the mood for a fun romance, this is definitely worth the credit.
If you are looking for sex scenes, you will probably like this book. I enjoy an occasional sex scene, but this is not really my style. Not much of a story here either. This woman is trying to liberate her sexual being. But I get embarrassed for her and that's not sexy.
While the setting (Tuscany) cannot be beat the characters where horribly trite - I actually found it almost painful to listen to. The nicey, and annoyingly religious heroine was just boring - totally lacking in personality and the plot line that allowed her to psychoanalyze the screwed-up-for-no-reason hero was thin, at best.
As long as your expectations aren't extremely high (like, groundbreaking novel high), you'll thoroughly enjoy this book. It's a bit silly at times, but I still really liked it! And there are some very steamy parts! Whoo!
I am an SEP fan and have many of her audiobooks. I enjoyed this one about half way through and then it just got silly.
I've just started listening to her books, while I have loved them all I was disappointed with this one. I normally fall in love with the heroine but this one I thought was a spoiled brat who just went on about psychology, rather frustrating. The actor was just as annoying. I love the witty dialogue that SEP writes but I could find none of that here.
I guess I should go back to the football stories.
I enjoy all Susan Elizabeth Phillips books. Characters are well developed. The humor and sizzle are so great together. She never fails to have me laughing out loud as I read or listen. Favorites have been the ones dealing with the Chicago Stars Football team but this one was just as good in my opinion.
I am a big Susan Phillips fan! While I alway enjoy her stories and characters, this was one of my favorites. The charaters were funny and had great lines.I laughed out loud often. I recommend this to you if you like fun, contemporary romance!
