I liked the female characters, the fast moving story, the sweet romance. I hated the talk of vagina vagina vagina. I’m a somewhat reserved person. And there’s no way I’m going to be flaunting my vagina at a dinner party. Ever.
Julia escapes a bad relationship by driving cross-country to the home of her Aunt Lydia. Lydia has a farm, a booming voice and a large personality. The scenes with her were so contrived and so uncomfortable they ruined the book for me. Some of the scenes without her weren’t a lot better – just unrealistic while also feeling trite and over-used.
But because I liked some aspects of the book I’m going to try something else by Cathy Lamb. I’m not ready to give up on her so let’s cross our fingers that there’s less vagina and less been-there-done-that in the next one.
