So very funny... 16. November 2006
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I love Connie Brockway's historical romances, and picked this book up expecting it to be her venture into the contemporary romance genre. Well, it is....but not in the way I expected. The romance is kept to a minimum (though still very well done). The focus of the book is Jenn's relationship with her 'hometown,' and Steve's growth into a man who can commit to a woman for a long-term relationship. The 'butter head' (a bust of Jenn carved in a large block of butter when she was in high school) is a recurring theme, and almost every reference to it made me laugh out loud (unfortunately for my seat mate on the plane). Ms. Brockway has such a deft touch in describing the Minnesota small town's inhabitants; I almost felt like I knew them.

One of the funniest books I've read in a long time.

Painful to get through 20. November 2006
Von Tammy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Ok, I was really excited to read this as I love her historical romances. The premise on the back of the book even sounded like something I'd like to read (I'll refrain from doing a plot summary here, as it has been summarized by many other reviewers on this page).

For starters, this book never really "captured" my interest, as it had way to many chapters with too many points of view (from minor characters). That was the first thing that bugged me. I figured it would get better if I just gave it a chance, but, alas, it never did. Also, If you like 20/30 year old main characters, be forwarned that the girl is 40 and the guy is nearing fifty. That fact didn't bother me as much as it might bother some, but I figured I'd warn prospective readers.

I never really connected with this book or it's plot. I did make myself finish this book (because I really hate buying a book and not reading it), but I found it truly painful to finish. Think twice before picking up this book! I hope I can expect better from Connie Brockway in the future!

Von Tracy Vest - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Robbed of her tiara and college scholarship due to a technicality 20 years earlier, Jenn Lind hates all things Minnesota. But she manages to parlay her time as an outcast in her small town to her advantage and becomes the ultimate Minnesotan - at least to the media. On the cusp of national stardom, she has to travel back her small Minnesota hometown to co-marshal a festival with sexy sculptor Steve who carved her likeness into a huge brick of butter. That butter head has survived all these years and is the key to where his first sculpture is, so Steve has a vested interest in traveling to the festival. Add to the mix a town of wary citizens, disgruntled city workers, a shrewish ex-wife, and a thief on a mission, and chaos ensues before the festival even starts- especially when the butter head suddenly goes missing.

At times Brockway's debut contemporary novel is funny, but overall, the story is flat, the Minnesotans are portrayed as bumpkins, and the novel travels at a snail's pace. The dialogue is kind of cheesy and there is no real chemistry between the two leads. For me, the novel was just pretty average, and I couldn't help but thinking that she should stick with writing historical romances.

Painful to finish 17. Dezember 2006
Von Seacalm - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Oh, how I miss Connie Brockway's older books after having read this one. I have read every one of her previous books and have several on my keeper shelf, so I was anxious to give her contemporary romance (if that's what it was) a try.

It is the story of how a woman spends some twenty years of her life trying to reclaim the feeling of security she lost when her well-to-do parents lost everything they owned (except for a cabin in Minnesota) in Las Vegas.

It was a story full of too many irrelevant details about too many goofy secondary characters. The romance was barely given a chance to develop before the end of the book and the one sex scene was about as unromantic as they get. There were a couple of laugh out loud moments that reminded me of the old Connie Brockway books but they were few and far between. The plot was very silly and the book was very difficult to finish.

I have given the book 2 stars only out of respect for Connie, but I can only say that her contemporary fiction is not my cup of tea.

Unfortunately, not up to her previous books 14. März 2007
Von MoveMeIntoBooks - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Let me preface with the fact that I have loved Brockway's historical, passionate romances. This book, being her first contemporary romance, differed from those historicals on many levels. There was some positive aspects to the book. Brockway still had some engaging and witty dialogue which has always characterized her work. There were moments of humor, but overall, I was not engaged. I cannot even begin to pinpoint what exactly went wrong but from the onset, I had trouble reading the book and becoming involved with the characters. Usually, I can sit down with a Brockway book and finish it within a few hours to the exclusion of all else. This time, my house was clean a third of the way through, and then the garage was clean by the time I reached the halfway mark. I thought it significant that I chose housework over reading the book! It just plodded along too slowly and for supposedly intelligent characters, it seemed rather odd that they came to certain realizations so slowly and then others (like falling in love), too quickly. The dialogue between Jenny and Steve was great but sparse with all the buildup leading up to their seeing each other again after 20 years. It was just different. It was also hard to relate to Jenny's animosity for the small town even though she kept whining about all its problems. It was also hard to relate to Steve's apparent infatuation with the place after such a brief foray in the environment. Unfortunately nothing much clicked for me and I kept wondering and hoping that the Brockway I have enjoyed so thoroughly would suddenly surface. Alas, I will pick up her next book just hoping that she does better and I appreciate her efforts but this one just isn't a keeper.
