Everything I’ve Dreamed Of, Love In Lakes Crossing, Norah Bennett

Everything I’ve Dreamed Of, Love In Lakes Crossing,  Norah Bennett

Everything I've Dreamed Of (Love in Lakes Crossing Book 2) by [Bennett, Norah]

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. .
