Victoria Alexander brings us another fantastic installment to her Effington family series. Let It Be Love, is Jonathon’s story and boy is it a doozey! LOL
Each Christmas, the Effington family holds the ultimate Christmas party and with it, Jonathon Effington has his own Christmas tradition while the party is in full swing. Each year, he meets with a lovely woman for an evening of passion and each year it has been with a different woman. This year however, he has picked someone whom he feels comfortable with and has had this rendezvous before, except that when he reaches the library with his 2 glasses of champagne, the woman he is expecting is not there. Is this a joke? No woman this exotic and beautiful could have just appeared in thin air!
Fiona Fairchild is in a pickle. In order to secure her inheritance and that of her three step-sisters, she must marry an American that her father has deemed she marries. Well, naturally, this does not sit well with Fiona, who is as stubborn and as strong-willed as they come. She decides that she must marry someone of her own choosing before “What’s His Name” comes from America and takes claim to her person.
What follows is a wonderful story of friendship, hijinks and a little misunderstanding that turns into a great romance. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you will just fall in love with Jonathon and Fiona. Theirs is a love that we all would wish for.
Ms. Alexander has another best seller on her hands. Her characters are very charismatic and believable. The settings that she uses are exquisite and her secondary characters are a hoot. You just can’t go wrong with a Victoria Alexander book!
