Hannah is a dressmaker who has always worked for someone else. But when a surprise benefactress turns that dream into the present, Hannah leaves behind everything she knows for the isolated town of Coventry, Texas.

And lands, of course, in the arms of J.T. Tucker (aka Jericho, though he does NOT care for that name). Which is naturally why Hannah starts to use it.

And dreamed silently of her own shop sometime in the distant future

After all, Jericho just begs to be made fun of, with his crusade against frippery and vanity and apparently Hannah’s whole way of life.

Though it’s hard to understand why they keep running into one another if he truly hates her that much. And the whole challenge of making him smile may be what’s keeping her from giving up.

I started reading this book in the middle of a school week, which is always a challenge. Reached chapter four on Thursday, and then found myself driven to finish the whole thing within 24 hours. I wanted to yell at J.T. SEVERAL times, but that is because he was begging for it. Wonderful fun. My favorite read of the new year. . more

That aside, the story itself does leave room for criticism. Pacing is painfully slow and there is very little happening in the story. Even the moments meant to inspire tension are sadly lacking. Look, we know the heroine isn’t going to die two thirds of the way through the book. And the “bad guy”, well, the author goes out of her way to make excuses for him and to try to paint him as young, misunderstood and confused. She even makes a silly attempt to redeem him at the end which doesn’t work.

The characters are fairly uninspiring on the whole. Really? Dude needs to see his prairie shrink to get over his momma issues.

The story carries a message that a woman needs to pretty herself up and loose those nagging 10 lbs

There is a message in this book that shouldn’t be in a book period, but definitely not in a romance novel. for a man to like her, or she’ll end up with the sociopath down the street cause he’s the only one who could like her. I get the heroine is fitness obsessed, and yes we are talking about a historical novel here. She spends half the book exercising. But to have her take the hero’s sister who is described as a bit plump and make her do these exercises and starve herself to lose weight so the guy she likes will like her back is ridiculous and a bad message. Of course there is a lot of lip service to the “oh, he like her just as she was,” nonsense, but the kicker here is the hero’s sister doesn’t get the guy until the heroine puts her through prairie boot-camp. . more
