Smart Girls Think Twice was ok. I'm not a better person for having read this but it wasn't a complete waste of time. In other words I didn't get the rush. The endorphins rush I get from a truly well-crafted tale- romance or otherwise.
Some books just make you feel good. You turn that last page and all is well with the world. This isn't a book for that- come to think of it either was her last one Big Girls Don't Cry. As with The Fourth Bear, I started reading and thought...I know these characters ...and then it occurred to me this is a sequel...in this Emma Riley, the brainaic of the family returns home to attend her sisters' weddings. While home she, a sociologist devises a research study on the recent boom of new occupants and new businesses in her small home town.
Jake Slayter, a newcomer to the area, is the first on her list to interview. Sparks fly- They have great sex and little conversation.
Pros: a quick read, good dialogue, some good scenes.
Cons: Heroine is a little snotty and unlikeable, she gets the small town up in arms with no work on her part - supporting cast is a little unbelieveable and annoying.
It's not horrible- it's good just not great. If I remember correctly that's how I felt about Big Girls Don't Cry.
