How vividly does a painted gray sky-scrape, long sulking faces, and the co-worker with the nae to every yae wisps a reader like me through an opening chapter, forgetting that I was even reading romance. I didn't realize what I was reading until I got to the end and actually turned the book over to read the back excerpt. All I knew, I was engaged from the opening... painting a mood I know all too well, to Karin & Lloyd... and good Lord if that exchange at the concert between her & Lloyd didn't tickle me... to the dialogue between her and her mother... where Karin of course set her straight too... to the very end caught up around Karin and the luv.
I've never come across a romance read as short, wrapping up as smooth, and coming across so believable! It had to be that opening, Esdaile speaking a language I know all too well (...raggedy as a bowl of yock - LOL)!
What else can I say but what a tease... wheeling readers in and spitting them out before they know it! The perfect beach read.
