Everything I’ve Dreamed Of, Love In Lakes Crossing, Norah Bennett
Genre: romance, women’s fiction
I was a little underwhelmed by this novel. It sounded perfect for me, and was very well written.
Somehow though it just didn’t add up into the kind of story I expected, one where I’d find it hard to put the book down.
I liked Kate, she’d pulled herself up from a troubled history and I really felt for her, and she had a good connection with Noah. He’s also got past issues that affected his present. I think maybe I just needed more of them together, more of the sensuality so I felt they just-had-to-be lovers, rather than the good friends but with benefits I felt they really were.
I wasn’t convinced of Dee’s reactions, she was treating her grown brother as a kid, and being anything but the person I’d come to know, and that just didn’t feel right.
Loved her daughter, such a sweet girl and I adored the childrens book mornings and events Kate set up.
Shakespeare too was a great addtion and added some real mental visuals for me.
Ava, oh Ava, what a missed opportunity. she shows her claws but in such a small way when she was the perfect woman out to get a man set-up. I really wanted more from her, I so love finding those characters in a story.
Still, its a fun read, a good HEA, well wrapped up mystery but just not one that really rocked me, not a re-reader. .
Stars: three, a good read, not a heart stopping one though for me. .
