This is the third book I have read in the series. I like that each book has a unique storyline. This one has a whimsical side to it given the curse. Of course, as a reader, I know there is a happy ending. Now, the journey to that happy ending is what kept me up finishing this book. I do enjoy reading (and finishing) a good book.
I like the characters. I like how straightforward the storyline is. No side stories. No minor characters outshining the hero and heroine. And I like that you do not have to read the previous books in the series to appreciate this book more. The story is well paced. This book just focused on the hero and heroine and how they worked together to overcome a curse. The innocent heroine “ruined” herself in the eyes of society to escape and engagement. The hero married her because her “ruined” state is perfect for his situation. So imagine his reaction to the truth. And her reaction to his “situation”. I consider this book to be a light read because it has none of the brooding and the angst and the misunderstanding and miscommunication that some novels capitalize on. This story has love, humor, family and hope. I like that there is an epilogue that focused on the makn characters but gave a hint of the next book in the series. Which I will, of course, buy.
