Review: Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas

Sigh, it seems to me I've been playing catch up on my blogging the whole week. I need to blog during the day, not at night ^_^; I find that when I post at night, it counts for two days LOL. Know what I mean? Ah well, I have no plans this week-end, so I might try to work on a few posts :P

By the way, what are you all reading? I've been looking at my TBR pile and nothing calls to me.

In any case, I'm done reviewing my books in June!! Yes, Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas was the last of my June reads that I wanted to review :) You can find it here, over at Breezing Through. It's another buddy review with Ames :P See how hard-working we are? :P And soon, very soon,  I'll be current in my reviews! Well I hope :P

In the meantime, everyone, enjoy August's last week-end!! Hopefully, that means everyone will come back to their routine and action will pick up in blogland :P

Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas
published by St. Martin's Press in June 2010
As a lover of animals and nature, Beatrix Hathaway has always been more comfortable outdoors than in the ballroom. Even though she participated in the London season in the past, the classic beauty and free-spirited Beatrix has never been swept away or seriously courted.and she has resigned herself to the fate of never finding love. Has the time come for the most unconventional of the Hathaway sisters to settle for an ordinary man-just to avoid spinsterhood?

Captain Christopher Phelan is a handsome, daring soldier who plans to marry Beatrix's friend, the vivacious flirt Prudence Mercer, when he returns from fighting abroad. But, as he explains in his letters to Pru, life on the battlefield has darkened his soul-and it's becoming clear that Christopher won't come back as the same man. When Beatrix learns of Pru's disappointment, she decides to help by concocting Pru's letters to Christopher for her. Soon the correspondence between Beatrix and Christopher develops into something fulfilling and deep.and when Christopher comes home, he's determined to claim the woman he loves. What began as Beatrix's innocent deception has resulted in the agony of unfulfilled love-and a passion that can't be denied.


  1. I was rereading Whirlwind Wedding. Then i started reading Eat Pray Love. Sadly, I just can't get into reading. I'm in a funk.

  2. Isabel - Who wrote the Whirlwind Wedding?

    I'm not interested in Eat, Pray, Love. Too chick-lit for me :(

    I hope you can pick up something to read soon. Oh, try the new Molly Harper :P It was fun :P

  3. I'm going to post one of my semi-reviews ;) of the latest Kresley book probably tomorrow. Now I'm trying to decide if I crack the new Anne Stuart I got or dig out an older Kresley Cole that I haven't read yet.

    And I'm with ya, we need the peeps to come back!


  4. "I've been looking at my TBR pile and nothing calls to me."

    - You definitely need more books!^^

    Congrats on getting all your reviews for June done! :)

  5. Cindy - Woohoo! looking forward to it, Cindy :D Hopefully, you've enjoyed it :)

    Hmm, that's a tough choice. I say go with Kresley Cole if you enjoyed Demon in the Dark. Otherwise, Anne Stuart :P

    I'm glad to know you agree with me on the ppl in blogland :)

    Taja - LOL, I know right ^_^;

    and thank you Taja :) One more book in April... and I'll be almost up-to-date!! :)
