Funny, enjoyable and undemanding romance
I love the way Sue Moorcroft draws quite elaborate plots, and also draws you easily into whatever world she's writing about.
Jennifer Woodward is a great expressive actor. Perfect for this, as the main character is American. Her way of making her English characters all sound like debutantes who occasionally slip into the Thames Estuary is quite comical - but doesn't really detract from a great performance.
Sue Moorcroft's books are well crafted and full of surprises. Here, I was rather irritated at one of her plot devices. (I'm not going to spoil the plot). This book was told from the perspective of Honor, the protagonist. We shared her history, her doubts, anxieties and hopes. Also her illusions and misunderstandings. We were on her side. As we're deep into the book Honor suddenly drops a bombshell. She's been keeping a big secret. Not just from the other characters but from us, the readers. I felt let down and started to mistrust the story and the writer. I later recovered, but wish the writer could have worked out the story in a different way.
