Romance novel alert: disinterested parties may pass on by.
I’ve been reading a lot of Lorraine Heath. There is a formula (why mess with what works?), but I’ve come to think of that as a standard cake recipe, it’s the extra ingredients that make each cake different and delightful. Heath writes interesting and fun characters and gives them wonderful dialogue. If they were real people, I’d love to have tea with the ladies and dance with the gentlemen.
I recommend them all.
