I have a very fulfilling but stressful job as a hospice nurse. At the end of the day I loved curling up and reading Love on a Dime. There was love and suspense. Very enjoyable reading. The message within the story helped to lighten my heart and encourage me. Great work.
So, this book was well written and the characters were engaging and the story kept the pages turning, but that's about all. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in it, but I don't think I'd read it again. I found Lilly a little bit frustrating at times, but I suppose when you got involved with a character, it's the sign that the author did a first rate job. My first book by Cara James, and I think I'd definitely give her other books a try!
I laughed and giggled all the way through this book. I found Lilly(aka Fanny Cole) trying to keep her writing a secret from Jackson who is trying to court her but also trying to find out who Fanny Cole really is. I enjoyed this book very much.
