Kurzbeschreibung

8. März 2007
Falling in love can be more disastrous than you'd think...A fabulous romantic comedy from bestselling author Jill Mansell. Maddy Harvey was a bit of an ugly duckling as a teenager, what with her NHS specs, unfortunate hair and wonky teeth. Thankfully she's blossomed since then. But when she meets Kerr McKinnon one starry summer's night and discovers, days later, who he actually is...well, that's when the problems really start. Because everyone in Ashcombe knows what happened eleven years ago, and as far as her mother's concerned, Marcella would rather tear that family to pieces with her bare hands than see Maddy associate with a McKinnon. It's Romeo and Juliet all over again. Quick, hide those sharp knives and that little bottle of poison...

5.0 von 5 Sternen (Ent-)Spannender geht's nicht! 2. Februar 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Ich habe das Buch erst gestern bekommen, aber ich habe es schon durchgelesen. Es macht einfach Spass dieses Buch zu lesen und ich konnte es nicht mehr aus der Hand legen.
Die Geschichte ist toll und nicht ganz so normal, da die Heldin unter Dyslexie leidet. Dies ist wohl ein bisschen autobiografisch, da die Autorin ebenfalls Dyslexie hat. Aber Computerprogrammen sei Dank, konnte sich sowohl die Heldin als auch die Autorin einen Weg in die Freiheit der Sprache und des Schreibens bahnen. Super.
Ich habe das Buch sehr genossen, daher meine Empfehlung, jeder der halbwegs Englisch kann und Romantic Novels mag, sollte dieses Buch lesen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen good story 12. Oktober 2004
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read most of Jil Mansells books and this isn't like the others. Mansells books usually are set in glamour and/or money but this one isn't. it is perfectly written and the characters are described as they should be.
The story is a romance that somehow doesn't follow the usual patern. it starts as girl meets boy but the rest is new. it is a good story for a beach read or for a cold winters evening in front of the fire.
Maddy Harvey the main character meets a man and falls in love. this has consequences that where not expected. also you will read about her brother, her mother and some of her friends and some people she is not so friendly with anymore.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really enjoyable read 4. Dezember 2012
Von Agi
Format:Taschenbuch
A typicall Jill Mansell's book and this is why I loved it. A lot of characters, many plots, a lot of action, unexpected twists and turns... Just a hillarious read and every time I feel I am getting a little down with the life I just read Jill. It usually helps :) Although I must say that I didn't warm too much to Marcella after this what she's done to Maddy, although I try very hard to understand her. Maybe she was right and maybe I couldn't fotgive as well, but on the other hand - Maddy was her daughter that lived. And Kate - oh, I really didn't like her at all, almost to the end, she has rehabilitated herself in my eyes with Norris :) Norris was a hit, I love reading about dogs in the books :)
Anyway, up to the next book of Jill, while waiting for January for the new release.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well worth the time 9. Juli 2003
Von Clare Wood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In "Falling for You," Julie Ortolon has written a smart, amusing and engrossing novel.
It's the first of what will become a trilogy about three siblings, two women and a man, and their romantic and professional adventures on Pearl Island, an imaginary spot near Galveston in Texas.
Rory St. Claire, beautiful, impetuous and yet uncertain, has a dream. She wants to buy the family home and turn it into an inn. But she has to find solutions to external problems, and conquer internal doubts to try to make that dream come true.
Ortolon's characters are convincing -- fully realized people with strengths and weaknesses who grow into a new understanding of themselves and their world -- and her plot arises and develops naturally.
But it's Ortolon's wit and her ear for dialogue that make this book a stand out.
I am looking forward reading her next effort.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not for me... 19. August 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I picked up this book because I'd read some good references to Julie Ortolon in a forum and wanted to try her. I'm afraid this book didn't do it for me. The story line was very weak. In this day and age, a 28-year-old man really plans on marrying a woman he hasn't even dated and feels no romantic connection with because their families want them to marry? And then when he slips and has a liaison with the heroine but later treats her like dirt because of this imaginary engagement, she takes him back in the end?

There were engaging parts of this book. I enjoyed Rory's character, and her brother and sister were interesting characters (who I assume will have their own books). But the improbable plot and uneven characterization of the main male character (Chance) spoiled the book for me.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A sucker for books with plenty of local color... 22. August 2002
Von bookjunkiereviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I love books that are set in an area new to me and that evoke local color so dramatically that I feel that I am there or that I want to be there [in my case, now I want to go visit Galveston, Texas!].
This is a story with plenty of color, and one which takes a standard plotline - rich stuffy banker meets wild child - and sets it on its ear. Rich characterization helps, and the secondary characters are multidimensional living human beings who have their own life histories. There are some funny scenes, but what counted for me in this book was the wonderful evocation of a city in small-town mode, the twists and turns in the relationship between the banker and the "wild child", and the hints at family secrets between the two of them.
The plotline is simple - Oliver Chancellor "Chance" is a banker whose father has just sold his small family-owned bank to an East Coast group. He is still expected to spend his life with the bank, to behave suitably and to marry suitably. His intended bride Paige is the daughter of old family friends. However, Oliver finds himself attracted to the sister of a schoolmate. Aurora "Rory" St Claire comes from an unconventional and almost disreputable family, with a famous local scandal in their past. She is a tour guide, her brother is a chef, and her sister works for a gallery. Nothing particularly special about Rory, except her stunning looks and her bubbly personality. Rory has self-esteem issues (we soon learn why), but she desperately wants to run her own B&B. When a house belonging to an ancestor is up for sale (after foreclosure by Chance's bank), Rory tries to obtain a loan to buy the property and get the B&B started. Oliver helps out, as much because he wants to help start a new business and see what else he is capable of, as because he wants to spend time with Rory against his better judgement. However, the loan from Chance's bank falls through. [I am going to end here to prevent spoilers].
The plot is complicated by secrets in Rory's families, the long-term effects of their family scandal (the most famous in Galveston), and by the contradictions within Oliver and Rory themselves. Oliver knows that he desires Rory, but he considers her an unsuitable wife for a small-town banker (which she is). He is prepared to marry a woman he does not love, simply to meet the expectations of their families, friends and the community. Rory often acts without thinking and creates trouble down the road for herself. But her vision of a B&B helps her to stumble along, discovering much of her hidden potential. If you are looking for a modern romance where a heroine makes a go out of a demanding new career (i.e does not downsize), this is a great book.
There are some scenes of lovemaking (including one rather sudden burst of passion, with the aftermath described in funny detail), but these do not take up very much space. The passion, the sexual attraction between the couple is described through other means - the first kiss (when you just have to compare Rory's reaction to Paige's), the fact that Chance keeps thinking about Rory at work and with other people, the reactions of other people to their relationship.
What I loved about this book was the quirky relationships between the protagonists and the secondary characters, the way in which local history and geography was incorporated into a romance, the fact that secondary romances (past and present) existed but did not detract from the relationship between Chance and Rory. I also loved the fact that the author was clearly setting us up for at least one sequel, with major changes to Chance's lifestyle by the end of the book and a hinted-at romance for Rory's older sister.
I did have mixed feelings about Chance and Rory. I was annoyed with him for being so blind about his true love, for not really wondering earlier what he wanted to do with his life. I also criticized Rory for keeping her secret, a secret. But these were minor problems.
If you like books about strong modern (or post-modern) characters with plenty of local color and with some quirky humor, try this book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Not worth the time... 21. Juni 2011
Von lizzie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book because I was looking for something light and fun to read and the reviews seemed pretty good so I decided to give it a shot. However, I found the content incredibly frustrating and completely unrealistic. First of all, Chance's 'engagement' is just absurd... obviously the author is trying to create conflict to make Rory and Chance's relationship more interesting, but I feel like it was a sorry attempt at a love triangle since Chance could barely bring himself to even date his fiance. Aside from just the flimsy engagement hurdle they must overcome, Rory and Chance's relationship is just downright annoying. Basically it boils down to them freaking out about the other's feelings for one another when they aren't together (even though they constantly profess their love) and then not being able to physically control themselves when they are together. This cycle gets old. Quick. Especially when there is hardly any reason they can't live happily ever after together since the only obstacles the author has presented us with is the supposed predestined marriage and Chance's inability to 'take a chance' (clever name right?). I love a good love story and I don't even demand that the author make it totally realistic (because let's face it, most of them aren't but isn't that their appeal?); however, this book just made me feel dumber for reading it. It's like one of those steamy romance novels that is 85% raunchy love scenes and 15% fluff, except instead it is 15% sex and 85% fluff. I definitely won't be recommending this book to anyone and it's safe to say I won't be reading the rest of the trilogy.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Didn't Fall For It 1. März 2012
Von Regina Moore - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Falling for You started out with promise, but then quickly dragged on and on with somewhat unrelated characters and stories. I'm just not sure I understand what was supposed to have happened here - why these two main characters were even challenged in any way. Overall, this book has some merit, but it was just not my cup of tea.
