Five Down, One to Go
Emmie Croftner let Isaac Liddle go to avoid telling him about her past. But Isaac remains determined to win Emmie’s heart and hand. Though Emmie resolves to keep her heart in check, it hurts when she sees that another woman has set her bonnet for Isaac.
Then Emmie’s dear friend extracts a costly promise: if anything happens to her in childbirth, Emmie will marry her widower and raise the baby herself. And it seems Emmie may have to fulfill that promise. But can she live happily without Isaac?
My ReviewThis is going to be a short review, because I disliked the same things about this novella as I disliked about the previous four in the series, and I’m pretty much only reading and reviewing it because that was the condition for signing up for the tour—that I’d review all six books in the series. My bad.
The characters aren’t inspiring (and Emmie seems to have had a character transplant since the last book), the plot is predictable (thanks to the spoilers in the plot summary on the book’s copyright page) and the writing is merely average (although Coble has made some “massive changes” since the books were first published).
I’ve also decided that while I enjoy reading a book series, I’m not as keen on a serial like this, where each book is an episode in a larger whole (actually, it’s a single book that’s been cut in three. A cynic would say that’s so the publisher can charge $6.99 each for six books instead of $14.99 each for two).
The one plus is that it’s a quick read. Especially when you can skim because you already know what’s going to happen.
Thanks to the publisher and Litfuse Publicity for providing a free ebook for review.
