Thirty Lessons

Mary Eason/Thirty Lessons/Samhain Publishing/ebook/262pgs

Shortly before Paige’s upcoming birthday she was dumped by her boyfriend, Harry. Paige’s best friend Dani consoles her on her breakup and convinces Paige to crash a masquerade party to celebrate Paige’s birthday. When first arriving at the party a somewhat depressed Paige sees from across the dance floor a sexy mystery man. He escorts her home and becomes her fantasy lover that shows up every night even though she doesn’t know his name. She starts to fall for him without knowing anything
about him. Paige discovers she has a new boss at work, since the company founder retired and put his son, Jude in charge. The new boss seems somehow very familiar though she is not sure why. Paige learns after meeting her new boss that he is actually her fantasy lover, which then creates a whole new set of interesting situations. Knowing Jude is not the marrying type but realizing that what she really wants is marriage Paige runs away. Jude won’t let Paige just end their relationship and follows her to a small New England community. While trying to get him to leave the weather won’t permit him to go, which leads to more predicaments. The book is written from Paige’s point of view, in the first person, which some readers might have a problem with. I think it adds a great deal to the story and helps pull you in as you read about Paige’s dilemmas. The story will have you laughing and crying right along with Paige as she deals with the challenges of life and love. This is a mid-length book that is definitely a must read. You won’t want to put the book down until the very end.

I give this book 4-1/2 red roses
