Impoverished Miss Convenient WifeSo I won this on Goodreads first reads and I got a bit disappointedI really liked the way the book started The writing was apparently good and the story seemed great and promising Allthough somewhere in the middle the book just appeared to be slow and without much happening in the story It's not that I didn't like the book I did it was a pleasent light reading It could have been so much though I thought the relationship between Simon and Phoebe could've been differently explored It lacked emotion passion I dunno something lacked It seemed a bit odd to me and I didn't really felt a connection to them Simon's relationship with his son Robert was decent but also could've been better explored In general it was an okay read and I would recommend it to anyone who is craving some light historical romance reading There were many uestions left unanswered though I felt like Michelle left many 'important' thing to be resolved at the end of the book and that is never a good option in my opinion Wealthy landowner Simon Clare shuns Northumbrian society With his son gravely ill the last thing Simon needs is an interfering woman assuming command of his household—no matter how sensuous her figure or how tempting her luscious lipsPhoebe Benedict knows what it is to struggle and isn't frightened of the badly scarred recluse and his gruff exterior It's the man beneath the scars that makes her heart race Phoebe Benedict is prepared for a fight when she shows up with a kitten at Simon Clare’s doorstep After all he was expecting his sister Diana to come and care for his dangerously ill son Robert Instead Phoebe arrives Simon Clare is known for his temper and he has been a recluse since he was injured and scarred by an engine upon which he was experimenting He is also scarred by his past–one that he would hide from the delectable Miss Benedict Only her skill with Robert persuades Simon to keep Phoebe on I feel uite ambivalent about this bookOn one hand I liked the story setting the theme and the characters Despite the fact that story develops slowly it charmed me from the start I loved the start of the love story and the initial exploration of the charactersHowever I got the feeling that something essential was missing I believe that the author failed to create the perfect chemistry between the main characters Further the whole history behind the Simon's personality was poor Until two thirds of the book it is unknown at all what happened in his previous marriage and the explanation falls far short for the created expectations It is foremost a light historical novel Another beautifully written story from Michelle Styles Miniseries Clare Brother and Sister Mehyour typical religious historical fiction predictable story line This book didn't entertain me at all In fact I found myself forcing myself to finish it Received as a GoodReads giveaway A predictable romance but a nice read Miniseries Clare Brother and Sister Not bad but I found Phoebe a ninny She was so worried about herself that she couldn't open up to Simon and kept waiting for him to reveal his weaknesses
