Review: Little Lady, Big Apple by Hester Browne

Posted in Review on September 14, 2011 by Julie Mangan

I’m sad to say this book didn’t grab me like the first one. It took me six weeks to read. The plot of Melissa joining Jonathan in New York didn’t have much inherent conflict in it. Yes, her office would be manned by two self-absorbed women who thought more of their own needs than those of the clients, but Melissa didn’t spend much time worrying about it. At least, not enough time to make it believable that she really was concerned for her company’s future. But then, she’s so gung-ho about the whole business she’s willing to brave Jonathan’s displeasure by refusing to quit. And that was just one of my problems. Don’t get me started on Jonathan himself. I haven’t liked him from the start and his behavior in this book simply solidified my dislike for him, instead of bringing me around to his side.

At its core, this was just another book where the main issues at hand could have been solved by a frank conversation between the two lovers.

I do intend to read the next book, because I did truly enjoy the first in the series. Hopefully it has all the charm and humor of that first installment.
