Lonely Millionaire by Carol Grace
This was a free download from Amazon
Dear Mr. Lonely….Mandy Clayton never answered personal ads, but this was one she couldn’t resist and now she was falling for a guy she’d never met.
Adam Gray was not interested in a mail-order romance, but he was willing to write some love letters for his friend. Then he had to go “check out” the bride to be. Off he went on an undercover job at Mandy’s Bed and Breakfast in a small California beach town. Adam was a good guy who always played by the rules, but one look at Mandy and he couldn’t help it – he wanted her for himself! He wasn’t there to romance his best friend’s fiancee. He knew that. It would be wrong… He knew that too.
The fact that this story was set in a Bed and Breakfast was the first thing that peeked my interest in Lonely Millionaire and the blurb just sounded a little bit different, for sure nothing that I would ever have the guts to do. I am so glad that it did peak my interest because I loved the story and didn’t want to put it down. I just had to figure out if Adam and Mandy would get together or if Mandy would bed up with his best friend, the wanna be lonely millionaire. It was an unique take on finding love when you least expect it. I like the banter and fun in the struggling bed and breakfast, probably due to the fact that I would love to have a bed and breakfast some day and my days working in hotels. The interaction between character was genuine and realistic. I was curious to find out what was going to happen between the friends and who was going to end up with who.
There were many spelling and grammatical errors in the story which made it a bit frustrating to read. Once I began to find them, it seemed that my eye was drawn to them and at times it took away from my enjoyment of the story. This would be the one area that I would recommend that Carol Grace work on to keep me coming back for these B&B stories. Because for me, the story line, character development and movement of the story was strong and left me wanting to read more about this group of people. I will say that the errors did play into my overall rating of the story.
Would have been closer to 4 if it had not been for the spelling and grammar errors because they were distracting for me.
