Review

I used to be a connoisseur of romance novels, in my younger days. I enjoyed the escape of a well-written novel, interesting characters, and good dialogue. Hoping for a little of that escapism, I picked up Luckiest Lady in London.

The dialogue in this book is excellent. There is lots of witty repartee, sarcasm, and humor, without being overblown. I also liked the main female character, Louisa. She has her faults, she's not physically perfect (fortunately, she's not one of those "diamonds of first water" romance-novel characters), and she embraces her burgeoning sexuality.

Unfortunately, the plot was tedious and the conflict between Louisa and Felix, her husband, was ugly and irresolvable (though the author forced an ending that was unconvincingly happily-ever-after). Felix simply comes across as a complete jerk who can't get over what his mommy and daddy did to him. Ugh. 

Have you read any good romance novels recently? If so, let me know about them in the comments below.
