MISS LONELY HEARTS
Rating: 4 Cups
Cassie has just been dumped by her second fiancé. Her cousin Riley is determined that Cassie not inherit her grandfather’s money. She only has two months before her twenty-eighth birthday, so she is getting a little desperate.
A Miss Lonely Hearts con woman has duped three of Jason’s regulars at the Last Resort, and he is determined to make her pay. So he places a personal ad.
A mistake in identity brings an Alaskan bar owner and an aspiring photographer together in holy matrimony. Circumstances and misrepresentations could separate them forever if they let it.
I really enjoyed this story. The author does not overload it with extra characters and makes each and every one of the quirky denizens of The Last Resort special, even the interchangeable and silent Lawrence twins. Mona, the ex-stripper, in particular is a wonderful and generous character and Rex the ugly dog is a hoot. Cassie and Jason are clearly meant to be together, even though she has sworn off good-looking men. I loved that she thought that she was escaping the endless rain of Seattle only to find more in Ketchikan. For a former bordello, The Last Resort is awfully homey to a lot of people. The dialogue is realistic and funny and I really wanted Cassie to find the home and family she was looking for in Jason, since he was obviously looking for the same. This is a warm and funny story that I will definitely read again and if we gave out half cups this would get 4 ½ cups for sure.
