All About Romance

New Reviews

The language and dialogue in the opening of Charmingly Yours remind me of the old TV sitcom Designing Women. But while I enjoyed Designing Women, it took me multiple attempts to read the first chapters of this romance. The author seems to introduce a cast of thousands and most use endless similes – generally with a Southern reference. While things picked up eventually, the author’s writing style isn’t to my taste. Combine that with a hero I disliked for most of the book, and this was a tough read.


Hugh Mackay once said, “Life is messy. Relationships are complex. Outcomes are uncertain. People are irrational.” It certainly seems as though Karen White used that quote as the blueprint for her new novel Flight Patterns.
