Enjoyed this tongue-in-cheek contemporary romance. This was Joan Johnston's debut book, originally printed in 1988. I have read several of her more recent books but this is the first time I have read this one.Gemma
I thought the heroine's "art" project was silly.Kym McNabney
I love Joan Johnston, though this was not one of my favorites of hers. I try to stay away from the, desire books. I only bought it because it was by her and I hadn't realized it was a, desire. I much more prefer the inspirational or historical ones. Considering this was one of her first, it was good. I thought it was a unique story line, done well. Really, the only complaint I have is the bouncing around of POV. That really irritates me. If it wasn't written so well, with a great story line, I wouldn't have been able to finish it.Deanna
I liked this book. As an earlier work of an author, it didn't read jerky and slow, like some do. If I wasn't aware that this is one of the first books written my Johnston, I would not have guessed. The writing was well written and the characters were believable. There wasn't any awkward jumping from scene to scene that often appears in earlier works.One assumes that her work has just improved with experience, and I, for one, will be on the lookout for more of her works to read in the future.
