~ Under the Covers
I was looking to reading this book since I’ve been a fan of SEP’s previous novels. However, I really had no idea what this book was going to be about. It turns out that I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. I’ve come to expect a level of writing from SEP after many years of reading her books as well as some fun dialogue and interesting characters. However, I felt like this book was written by a totally different person. Not only did I not like the characters, but it lacked everything that I love about SEP’s writing.
This book is a Women’s Fiction novel, but it does have a touch of romance in it. I don’t know. I don’t think Tess or Ian lived up to any of SEP’s past characters. In fact, I found that Tess’s character needed a lot more development. She lacked some of the sparkle that her other heroines have and as a result, I just didn’t connect with her character at all. It’s such a shame because I had such high expectations, but in the end, I struggled with finishing this book.
I’m not sure if I’ll be reading more of SEP’s Women’s Fiction novels, but I’m hoping that if she does more, there will be a little more sparkle and life to the characters the next time around.
