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. .

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 amazon.co.uk 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.
