Review: Return of the Viscount

ReturnViscount“Return of the Viscount” by Gayle Callen (historical, Avon, August 2012, $7.99, 384pp)

 

Nicole gives this book a rating of 2 stars

 

Summary:
Her marriage of convenience seems far too convenient . . .

 

Desperation drove Cecilia Mallory to seek a union with a stranger—one who would wed her sight unseen and grant her full access to her inheritance with no expectations whatsoever. She anticipated, perhaps, an older, undesirable, equally desperate husband—never the young, vibrant, and devastatingly attractive man who answered her call. What could such a man really be after?

Review: Rescue Me

Rescue-Me-171x300“Rescue Me” by Rachel Gibson (contemporary, Avon, June 2012, $7.99, 384pp)


Summary:
Mercedes (Sadie) Howell is a successful realtor who returns to her small hometown in Texas to attend her cousin’s wedding.  Seen as a maverick by the proper ladies of town, she hasn’t returned since her high school graduation.  She arrives in town in time to rescue former Navy SEAL Vince Haven whose truck has broken down on his way to Lovett to visit his aunt. Will these two outsiders fit into Lovett, TX or cause a scandal?

 

Review: (This reviewer gives "Rescue Me" 3 of 5 stars)
This book was good, but while it had its funny moments in many ways it dragged.  Vince and Sadie spend more time apart in the first half of the book than together.  One thing that bothered me were all the current event references, which I believe will date the book quickly, and make this one not something to be picked up and enjoyed time and again.  But all and all a decent read.
