Ethan’s Heart, Vickie King

Ethan’s Heart,  Vickie King

Ethan's Heart by [King, Vickie]

Genre:   Romance,

A step back in time here. back to the 1800’s and we meet Annie and Ethan.
Circumstances have brought them together and I thought it sounded like a book I’d really enjoy but…though it was OK it wasn’t one to set me on fire.

I had a few issues, the main one being the timing.
Ethan’s only been widowed six months, and I just couldn’t see how he went from grieving, heartbroken widower, desperately missing his beloved Elizabeth to falling for Annie within such a short time.
Equally the children – Mollie hates Annie, but within a month adores her.
Then there’s Annie herself. After all that had happened, after what she was risking, could she just get swept off her feet in such a short time? Especially given they began with Ethan telling her he’d had a “real” wife and only needed her for the children, and she being so scared she’d slip and reveal her secret. They barely spoke, definitely kept out of each others way so its not as if they even had a full month to fall in love.

There were a few other niggles I can’t explain without giving too much away but where I could have loved this story had they been addressed and the timespan much much longer as it is I just felt this was on OK, one off read.
Stars: Three, an OK read.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
