An Unlikely Suitor - Nancy Moser
I don’t know that “secrets” necessarily “abound” in this novel. But I did really enjoy the reading of it.
Parts of it were certainly predictable, but that made it cozy to read. I enjoyed Lucy’s character and the growth shown in both her and Rowena through their friendship and life circumstances.
I wanted to slap Lucy’s sister many times throughout the novel. Her character annoyed me with her childish ways and selfishness. Then again, I know many teenagers with similar attitudes. So Ms. Moser probably hit the mark with that character.
I didn’t like the end being so rushed (through the epilogue) and would have liked a little more “meat” near the end. And what happened to Sofia at the end? I don’t want to spoil it, but we know that Mrs. Scarpelli moves but we have no idea what Sofia does.
A pleasant book overall.
