I love this series. I really wish there was going to be a fourth book about Jenn. And then a fifth book that is about all 4 (Anne, Meredith, Forbes, and Jenn) and their happily ever afters. Anyway, this is about A Case for Love. I apologize for any spoilers, but there are some things I want to address that makes them necessary.I've been a fan of Forbes since book one. I don't really find him as much of a control freak as he's made out to be. I think he just thinks he knows what is best for his siblings and wants to help them do what is best to be happy. I guess I just wish my sibling cared that much about me. Forbes really becomes human in this book, though. Before he was so much of a secondary character that he just seemed perfect and like he had it all together. I like him even more now than I did before when I thought he was perfect.The only thing I don't understand is what happened with Forbes' parents and Evelyn Mackenzie's company. Where was the miscommunication or blame supposed to rest? I just didn't really feel clear on what happened. Also, since the Guidry's are doing Save the Mills now, what does that mean for Major's restaurant!?I really liked that Forbes and Alaine got together a good 30 or 40 pages from the end. I liked seeing them as a couple instead of only getting to see it within the last few pages. Too many books put it off until the very end, so I loved that they got together sooner rather than later!This is a great series well worth the read. I've already recommended it to a friend, and I actually don't do a lot of recommending to friends. Usually they're telling me what to read!
A CASE FOR LOVE was the first book I read by this author and found it different and new, but in a good way from the normal take on romance. Two thirty somethings, looking to settle down, while just happening to be the most eligible singles in their community. Forbes in a high end attorney for some of the best paying clients in his community and he grudgingly accepts the award of most eligible bachelor in his hometown. But after meeting Alaine (who also happens to be distinguished as the oldest single woman) at the award ceremony, that status is headed for a change.It wasnt your typical boy meets girl, fall in and out of love scenario, which made it fun to read. Alaine thinks she is falling for Forbes until an underhanded act is performed against her parents business- handed down from Forbes own parents. There was quite a bit of legal jargon in the book, which for me at least, was a bit of a challenge to understand. But I caught enough of it to understand and none of it lasted over long.The ending was great, I loved seeing them conquer issues they struggled with throughout the novel. Did they come together? Well youll just have to read the book to find out! The romance was warming and enjoyable and picturing the hero and heroine together in their scenes- was bliss. All in all A CASE FOR LOVE was an enjoyable romance, with a refreshing zest to the story.
In the mood for a light read? Pick up this book! Forbes is a handsome man who has giving up on dating, as a lawyer, he is busy and has not seemed to be able to find someone who is his match. Reporter Alaine Delacroix is in a similar position, when the two hit it off at a dinner party...they are happily optimistic, but things get dicey when their families are suing each other over land issues. As a lawyer, Forbes is stuck between the two. Will it mess up his career? His chance at love?A light happy book, somewhat cheesy at moments, but something that was enjoyable to read!
I loved both Stand-in Groom and Menu for Romance and was really looking forward to reading about Forbes who I absolutely love, in A Case for Love. I really enjoyed it! Kaye Dacus definitely has the knack when it comes to writing "real" characters. Forbes and Alaine, even though they are beautiful, successful people struggle with their faith, their families and their careers just as we do. The storyline is very interesting and I was pleasantly surprised at how interesting law could be, it helps that Forbes is a total hottie (sorry I just had to add that :-P) and would make a story about paint drying fun! The romance between Alaine and Forbes is so sweet, I love it! Kaye proves that single gals can write terrific romance! I will definitely be reading her next contemporary romance series, The Matchmakers, due out later this year!I received my influencer copy courtesy of the author and publisher.
To help her parents survive a big corporate take-over of their home and business, Alaine needs a lawyer to represent her parents in court. However, Forbes is the only lawyer who will take her case, which is against his parents who own the corporation thats attempting the take-over. The relationship that builds between Alaine and Forbes is full of strife. Can they survive among the discord between their families? An impeccably written story by a great storyteller. The plot moves smoothly from scene to scene with no slow parts to struggle through.
