Book Description of Man of Her Dreams
Making it in a man’s world as a home renovation expert is tough, but Lindsay Swanson’s up for the job – leaving no time for any kind of social life, until…
Jared Kane moved to Ravenwood for some much needed peace and quiet to finish his next book, which is hard to do when his sexy neighbor is the one renovating his kitchen…
Then Lindsay overhears Jared talking about her notebook. A notebook wherein she and her BFF – after one too many bad dates and one too many glasses wine – concocted a checklist of the perfect guy. Is Jared the real deal, or has he been molding himself into the man of her dreams to get past her defenses?
The evidence points to his guilt, and the rift between them seems insurmountable, but Jared’s not about to let the woman of his dreams get away.
Sue Barr resides in beautiful Southwestern Ontario, Canada with her retired air force husband, close to their sons and families. The other members of the Barr clan are furry, and demanding. Very demanding. The kids were easier….
When not busy writing, Sue loves to spend time with family and friends. She sings along with the radio in the car hoping no one sees, has been known to laugh until it hurts, sneaks a few non-healthy things…. ugh…. a LOT of non-healthy things into her diet, and thanks God daily for allowing her to have this wonderful, wonderful life.
My review [rating=2]
A sweet story and clean read with plenty of humor thrown in.
I loved Lindsay’s character and the way the author shared the character’s thoughts with us in the form of news headlines. It made me smile. Jared’s attempts at getting her attention too are sweet – working on the garden without a shirt, etc!
The plot of the story would have made an excellent read but for a few glaring errors which should have been picked up by the editor. For example, I was left wondering whether Jared did in fact attempt to woo Lindsay based on her list for a ‘dream man’. Also there was some confusion with the timeline – the duration of Lindsay’s sister-in-law’s pregnancy seemed off. There were simple errors like Lindsay’s father handing her a cup of cocoa and she saying ‘Thanks for the tea.’ Also some details were introduced and not followed up on. For example, the police chief asked some pointed questions to Jared about people he sees on his morning run, but the reader has no idea what that was all about. I found the ending rather hurried too.
Overall, I felt like the author has great potential but needs a good editor to make sure that her writing gets due credit.
