“————“ is to Sherlock Holmes, as xXx is to James Bond. answer: Arrowood! well...that probably puts you off this book, so forget that. the point is, Arrowood gets the clients who can’t afford Holmes, Arrowood works with his assistant, Barnett (narrator), out of a ‘dark corner of Southwark’ and doesn’t get the recognition Holmes, Arrowood in fact starts the book fuming about Holmes, and then his newest case intrudes, and we’re off at a fast pace. this seems like it’s going to be a fun alternative to Sherlock, and I’m left wondering if the Great Detective might actually make a cameo appearance! even if he doesn’t, I have s good feeling about this one based on the first exciting chapters.
I really enjoyed this Mail order Bride historical romance between a stubborn hero and heroine. It was a test of who would speak up first and listening to each other. I bought this at a book sale and I've given it a 5* rating. Once their communication skills got better, it made a big difference. Loved most of the other characters too. Nice cold winter's read.
I enjoyed this story. Pru tried so hard to be what people expected in order to move beyond her family issues. I loved her determination to have a "normal" family but enjoyed when her wilder side came out, the need for freedom from censure. Johnnie chose a road unacceptable to most people, but Pru enjoyed his stories and adventures. The two played well to the true person inside, and I was glad to watch them move beyond expectations. I recommend this story.
I received an ARC of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
Mistletoe Match-Up is a fun holiday romance by Stacey Joy Netzel. Ms. Netzel has provided readers with a well-written book. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time. The characters in this story are fantastic and you'll get to visit with characters from previous books. Derek has always come in second when in competition with Lisa. When she arrives back in town for her brother's wedding the competitions start all over again. Derek and Lisa's story is full of drama, humor and spice. I enjoyed reading this great holiday story and look forward to reading more from Stacey Joy Netzel in the future. Mistletoe Match-Up is book 3 of the Romancing Wisconsin Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
