Love in the Afternoon (Hathaway Series)

Love in the Afternoon - Lisa Kleypas My Rating: 3.5 As I read more and more of Lisa Kleypas' novels, the more and more I fall in love with her books. They are all heartwarming, entertaining reads that just makes my day. Beatrix is the heroine in Love in the Afternoon and she is so uniquely different. I love how she cares dearly for animals and can communicate with them. I love how she has a huge portion of her house devoted to the many animals she takes in. I love how she's caring, patient, and isn't afraid to be herself, even if it makes her "uncivilized" to society. I love how she would rather endure being single forever than being married to someone that she doesn't love. I love how she keeps the promises she made even if it ultimately breaks her heart. Although Christopher has changed from the handsome arrogant rude playboy Beatrix knew to the new handsome weary hurt Christopher, I don't really think he's good enough for Beatrix. No one is. However, since he makes her very happy, I'm satisfied with the match. My favorite scene in Love in the Afternoon is when Christopher's stern grandfather, Annandale, meets Beatrix. The way she charmed him was charming and hilarious. I hope Christopher knows how fortunate he is to be able to win her heart. And the ending. That just brought a huge smile on my face and made my day. I wish Lisa Kleypas would write a novel focused on Mark Bennett and Audrey. I want to see how they fell for each other and what Audrey would do when she discovers that Mark hasn't been exactly honest with her. Keep writing Lisa! ohdamnbooks: love in the afternoon
