Love Walks In is a captivating and thoughtful contemporary romance novel.
Hugh blamed himself and his impulsive behavior, for the death of his mother. Aubrey blamed herself for having had cancer, and for being a disappointment to her parents.
Hugh hated surprises. Everything in his life was governed by rules and rigid schedules. In his teen years, Hugh was irresponsible and rebellious, and that’s when his mother died. Hugh’s zest for life and spontaneity left him that day.
Aubrey craved her parent’s approval and love. So when her father encouraged her to marry someone whom she didn’t love, she almost went ahead and did it. But, at the eleventh hour, Aubrey bailed. She was elated and relieved that she had the courage to act on her own behalf. If she hadn’t, Aubrey would never have met Hugh.
Because of Hugh and Aubrey’s troubled histories, they would have several obstacles and fears to overcome before they could find true happiness. The author does an extraordinary job writing the first part of the book where Hugh and Aubrey first meet and start working together. I found it so captivating and hysterical that I couldn’t put the book down. The dialog between the two of them was natural and witty, and the story flowed easily. The middle part of the book, though, slowed the pace a bit, because of repetitions. But all in all, Love Walks In is a very enjoyable and entertaining read. I’m looking forward to book three, where I am sure I’ll find the answers to some dangling questions.
I received this ARC from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
