A kiss for luck - Grace Burrowes

Game designer Sadie Delacourt has moved to the peaceful, bucolic town of Damson Valley for a fresh start where she can keep an eye on a recently divorced sister and her small nephew. Sadie plans to focus on her business and her family, until handsome neighbor Gideon Granville turns his focus on Sadie. When Sadie learns where Gideon has been aiming his snooping skills, she’s ready to delete him from her plans entirely—though Gideon is all that stands between her and the trouble she thought she’d left behind her. 

My thoughts:
I have no idea what I just read, it was confusing at times, and romance should not feel confusing. I was all what? Also it was way too rushed. Sure some books can be novellas and short stories, but this was a Book crammed into a novella, and it did not work.'

It was about Sadie who was forgettable.
Gideon who, oh sometimes the book confused me who was talking, but srsl Gideon, check what you are doing.
They liked brownies, did it, lived happily ever after and I was all, what happened?

It did not work. Total failure

  1. Yikes! Definitely doesn't sound like a book for me. I hate it when books are cramped like this.

  8. Bad romance novels happen - like all the time. What kind of name 'Sadie' is? It makes me think about Marquis de Sade. Have a lovely weekend!

  9. Yes, I can see where too much is not a good thing in a novella-length story. I've read two of the full-length from the series and liked them, but I wouldn't want to see those stories crammed into a third of the page count.

    Oh well, at least it was short.

  10. Oh, bummer. Successfully sharing a quality story in a novella-length book is tough. I've always wanted to try her stuff - not this one, tho!

  11. That sucks. She's one I won't read anymore :/

  12. Yea, looks like one I would pass on. Some people can really pin down a novella and some just don't quite get it.

  13. oh this sounds disappointing. I haven't tried these books yet. I like her historicals, but not many authors can write novellas well.

  14. Aw sorry to hear this one didn't work for you

  15. Bummer, that shouldn't happen with a romance
