Losing Penny


Kristy Tate
Contemporary Romance
Book 3 of Rose Arbor Series

"In Drake's experience with women 'fine' usually meant 'shut up, you moronic boor.'"




Penny Lee is well known as a cooking blogger.  Unfortunately, that gains her a stalker and sends her into hiding for the summer at her aunt's beach house.  A summer of pretending to travel Europe and relaxing and cooking by the beach sounds perfect.  That is until she finds that her aunt has also leased the house out to college professor and author Drake Islington.  Perhaps they can be of use to each other.  That is, until his mother, his employer, her neighbor, and her stalker join the mix and threaten to undo the chance at matchmaking romance the summer was set up for.

My Opinion: This was a cute read, though not as engaging as I'd hoped.  Though there were only two real main characters, there were several main side characters that it seemed to skim through them all, rather than focus.  I felt like it was part of a long and complicated series (and apparently it is), with random updates on other characters and introductions of other plotlines.  There didn't seem to be enough resolution on any of them or enough meat to this story to stand on its own.  Nevertheless, the main characters were kind of fun and had a sweet little romance.  To be honest though, I felt lost more often than not and that detracted from my ability to really revel in a fun story.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
