Many readers report deciding within the first thirty or so pages whether or not they will enjoy a book. The more I read, the more I’ve become inclined toward this school of reading, and yet I continually find books that that prove me wrong. Lord Holt Takes a Bride, first in a new series by Vivienne Lorret, is just such a book. I will confess that I rolled my eyes through the first chapter or so, convinced that the heroine and her friends were a band of idiots. However, the story soon shifted in such a fashion that I found myself quite charmed and also admiring of the author’s perceptive view of her characters.
This book is interesting in that the middle of it truly shines. I’ve seen romance readers complain fairly often about books with a sagging middle, but in this one, the opening stumbled around a bit and the ending will probably strike many readers as just a little too convenient. The middle of the book centers on Asher and Winnie’s travels and the focus is almost entirely on their budding relationship. That tightly plotted chunk of the book worked really well, and left me with happy reading memories overall. There is a lovely secondary romance mixed in as well.
While Lord Holt Takes a Bride has its weaker moments, the main action of the book features a journey that will make lovers of road romances quite happy. If you like a good-humored romp of a story, you may well want to give this one a try. Given current events, I was in need of a diversion and this one left me with warm fuzzies.
