The Love Letter book. This is a novel about a selfish, amusing, charming woman who is side-swiped by an inappropriate love affair with a man much younger than she is - someone she should be able to control, because she does that so well. Things get away from her. It’s gratifying to watch. It all starts because she comes across an anonymous love letter which upsets her view of her world and paves the way for Johnny. Schine does an interesting job with Johnny; he’s young, but not shallow; he’s interesting but not quirky.

This is a very sweet book and a must-read for middle-aged women, especially if they are single. I appreciate Helen's contrary nature and her seemingly self-destructive impulses. I also appreciate her hesitation to take on her venerable family members. And I love the people who populate her bookstore (Johnny is quite believable). My only complaint - and a very real one - is that this plot droops and drags in places.

Have read it several times from the library and decided time to purchase my own copy.

DVD is good too only seem a tad different from the characters I envisioned reading in the book ~ albeit that probably happens more times than not.
Vivaral
Wonderful, heartfelt emotionally involved story with great story line. A bit on the fairy tale side since I doubt anything like this would happen in our existence, but it could somewhere, between the right people, and that feeling of success is evoked here.

This book really tries too hard. I read through the first several chapters, and was so bored with it, I accidentally left it on a plane. Now I have to buy a copy to replace my library's, although I do not wish this book on anyone. There are better novels out there worthy of your time & money. Maybe the end gets better, but I don't think you should have to suffer through the first part of a book just for a happy ending.
Hidden Winter
Sleezy.

I thought this would be a fun read instead it was filled with foul language that did nothing for the story. The preview was misleading - I did not finish this book - waste of money.
Akinonris
I managed to finish this book but it was a struggle. Poorly written - profanity that added nothing to the storyline. She used a lot of "big" words, perhaps trying to impress me. She failed. I thought the story was disgusting.
This was the most boring book I have ever read. The storyline dragged until I got to the 8th chapter then it got steamy and not my cup of tea.
