    Vintage Harlequins, how I love thee Ruth is a sweet young thing with a love of old books Jacques is a wealthy, cocky young man who s head over heels in love with her and determined to marry her He wants her to come to his fancy chateau in France so they can be near each other, so he causes her to lose her job at the bookstore by kissing her in front of her boss, and then finagles her into taking a job cataloguing his famous uncle Hugo s priceless collection of rare old books He didn t count on Ruth s being mesmerized by Uncle Hugo s much manlier brand of AlphanessThis was a good read Lovely descriptions of the fancy old chateau, and I liked how Jacques wasn t a caricature OM He was cocky and sulky at times, but it was only due to immaturity He was sincere with his love and genuinely a nice, earnest person, and it almost sucked that he didn t get the girl But you can t really deny the power of Hugo s manly chest mmm and the way he s all authority and the way he teases Ruth and calls her mon petit, and mon choux, and mon belle petit fille and she s all, I don t understand French, don t call me mean names .Ahem Moving on, Ruth is also quite a satisfactory heroine, although I was surprised at how she just freely spreads around her kisses like it s nothing And it s not just friendly pecks either, she is all making out with both Jacques and Hugo, sliding her arms around their necks, and her so innocent and sweet, too First the grandma catches her and Hugo in a clinch, and Ruth s all, It means nothing Then Hugo catches her and Jacques locking lips, and she s all, We re just friends I dunno, honey But other than her questionable views on friendly kissing, she s super sweet and honest.I liked that there was a hint of gothicness to the story, although on the whole it was light and breezy There s a mysterious dead brother that s hinted to have been a mentally ill genius, and a hidden message she finds in the library Nothing too crazy came of it, but just the tinge of gothicism added a nice layer to the story The ending was a bit short, IMO, and maybe I would ve liked drama, but all in all I found this a satisfying read.

    I liked Hugo despite his continually wearing dress shirts open to the navel , I even liked the nephew wannabe OM Jacques an impetuous but sweet kid But I intensely disliked the stuttering, stammering, hesitantly spoken Ruth The shy, conflicted, uncertain heroine in Mary Burchell s NOBODY ASKED ME could have elbowed Ruth in the throat, knocked her backpack into a puddle, stole her lunch money I really don t understand how these two worldly dudes were so ass over teakettle for her Also, there was no plot to speak of No OW, no mystery or danger, no anything at all Not every story needs these ingredients, but seriously SOMETHING needs to happen The best part was the description of the library at Hugo s chateau I want one D Otherwise, 2 stars for blah nothingness.

    One of my first Rebecca Stratton novels bought by mum for me in 1976 I liked this story very well.

    The French seem to be quite liberal with their kisses It was an interesting story and both the Hero and heroine were extremely likable Plus it takes place in an old French chateau how can I resist.
