My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received my copy of this eBook in exchange for a fair and honest review.
There are not enough words to describe just how much I loved this book! I am not normally a lover of historical romances. They have to be incredibly well written and they have to captivate me from the start, generally they have to make me fall in love with their heroine from the get go. I've read another in the Power of the Matchmaker series that was very well written but that I had a hard time getting in to because the characters didn't hook me right out of the gate. Regina Sirois did this. She had me rooting for Eve and the happiness that I desperately desired her to have from the first line of the story!
I felt like Eve Brannon, officially grown and a woman of the world. Truly, typed words simply exude sex appeal. My coveralls, however, exuded only the smell of sheep. I sat for a moment, staring at the piece of paper and wondering if the Eve Brannon on the page would ever be the same Eve Brannon typing the words. Well, obviously I can't say it right. Only that it felt like there were two of me, and both of them were thinking about woolen socks and blue eyes and a man at the threshold of my room.
Eve is such a real character! I feel like, if I closed the book and were by chance to peer in the mirror, I would see something rather like what she had seen writing her name on the brand new Smith Corona. I think the ability to identify with her (despite the differences between 1939 and 2016) was what made me love this so much.
I spent the entire book rooting for Jonathan, I never once really thought that she would end up with Alan, that was too easy. It wasn't really overt, but you could tell from the minute that she met Jonathon Doran that that was the man for her.
If you have a love for pre WWII romances, this one should captivate you! When you're done, go read The Truth About Fragile Things which I also adored, by this author, that will have you weeping and proud with the same breath!
Five stars and two enthusiastic thumbs up!
