Okay, it’s fall, but I don’t want to start a new thread just for the remainder of 2017…

I’m halfway through Joanna Shupe’s A Daring Arrangement. I hope the second half is better than the first half, because I’m really disappointed with the characters and the plot so far! The heroine is 20 but acts more like she’s 15. The hero, age 30, sees the heroine’s immaturity/impulsiveness/rashness (which almost leads to them both being seriously injured or worse) as “courageous” and “brave.” The “daring arrangement” that drives the novel seems a little wishy-washy (or maybe the word is “clumsy”) in its execution.

It’s been a really tedious read so far, but hopefully the author will turn it around. I really loved her book Baron.
