Evanovich is obviously fond of the name Stephanie!
2.5★ & I'll tell you why.
This is a reissue of an old Loveswept. Originally written in 1988, Evanovich writes in the introduction that she only changed the title & edited to fix some minor bloopers, but the time period was changed to the 21st century. This doesn't work as there are for example, are no cell phones & a secondary character who dresses like an 80s punk. Above all a twenty nine year old virgin heroine who isn't Amish or an ex nun! This would already have been a hard sell in the 80s, let alone 2005! (date of reissue)
It took me two days to finish this book and normally I can read light romances in an afternoon. I simply couldn't find any enthusiasm to pick it back up. When I did, I fell asleep!
The pacing is a bit off at the start & the transition from aboard boat to land is clumsy. The second half of the book & the resolution (view spoiler)[ which didn't explain things like ghostly hands pushing Stephanie into the water (hide spoiler)]made me want to slap every single character in the book, other than the hero & heroine.
Positives. The book is an early example of Evanovich's ability to describe attractive main characters & sexual attraction. There are a few flashes of Evanovich's wit & sense of fun.
I'm sure there was heaps of readers curious about Evanovich's early work. & I can remember reading & enjoying another of her Loveswept titles many moons ago, but this particular title should have been left to the normal fate of light romances - pulping or charity shops.
