Two and a half stars. I have two favorite authors: Lisa Kleypas and Liz Carlyle. That said, while this book had huge potential, it did not meet my expectations at all.
Many others reviewers have remarked on the low page count, large font, blank pages, and exorbitant price (in Puerto Rico this book can only be bought at Border's for the full price of $16.99 + tax). I think that the problem is due precisely to the length of the book. It is too short to satisfactorily develop the plot and characters.
The romance is very slow to start, which would not be a problem if the book was long enough to allow the relationship to grow and develop. As it is, once the romance is "established" it is rushed and the story seems unfinished and incomplete. The one intimate scene is very superficial and tame. There is nothing wrong with the setting, the characters, or the plot, the book just needed two hundred additional pages to be fully developed.
One minor detail: on Thanksgiving morning Maggie flatirons her hair and later that day Mark touches her riotous curls. I expect and deserve careful editing at this price point. For the next books in the series, I'll wait for the paperbacks.
