About the book: Can Love Survive Friday the 13th?
Friday the 13th has always been unlucky for history professor Camille Britain, and this one doesn't seem any different. In an effort to escape her failed marriage, Camille is renting a cabin in beautiful Island Park, Idaho, where she meets wildlife photographer Jackson Armstrong, who scoffs at her superstitious ways and infuriates her with his offers of help.
Camille doesn't need another man—not even one as compelling and attractive as Jackson. Especially when he seems hung up on another woman. And yet Camille can’t deny the passion between them or the way Jackson makes her feel.
This Friday the 13th upsets both their worlds by forcing Camille and Jackson to see things about themselves, their families, and each other that might—with a little help—change them forever. Maybe this time superstition is on their side.
The Superstitious Romance is a "sweet romance" about a strong woman who feels weak, a man who doubts himself, and a powerful love that changes everything.
My review: This book was kind of cute and fun. I liked Camille, she was a bit quirky with the way that she knows and believes all kinds of obscure superstitions. But for her, they all tend to come true. I liked Jackson, he was not really willing to allow Camille to push him completely away the way that she wanted to. It was kind of funny how Jackson kept trying to help Camille in any way he could, like a true gentleman, but she kept pushing him away and kept trying to do everything herself. But the way she tried to do things was sometimes funny, like when she tried to start a fire in her fireplace with lighter fluid, or when she tried to figure out how to get rid of the squirrel that manged to get into her house.
It really seemed like the odds were against these two ever getting together, there were just way too many accidents and way too much of a wall built around each of their hearts for that. That's really what kept me interested in this book. There were several places that the plot was a bit confusing to me, it was almost contradictory in a few places. But in the end it was a cute book, and it was kind of fun that it was set in Island Park, a place that I frequented as a child.
I won this book in a contest last month.
