|Ellie Andrews Has Second Thoughts
by Ruth Saberton
The author shows a flair for similes and metaphors, constantly comparing situations to what I assume are celebrities who share similar attributes. I really can’t say for sure as I didn’t understand the majority of the references. I don’t know if this is because he author is from the UK and referred to British celebrities that Americans aren’t as familiar with, or that my daughter is correct with her claim that I live in a cave and have never heard of people who have become famous within the past 15 years. It could be a combination of both.
So while I do have mixed emotions, I did over all enjoy the book. It is written in a combination of flashbacks as Ellie is wool gathering while preparing for her wedding. The flashbacks keep the reader guessing as to WHICH of the four men who have proposed to her in the past couple of years that she is actually preparing to wed. We never find out until the last paragraph (HEY! No flipping to the last page!). The combination of romance and intrigue was quite entertaining as poor Ellie flip-flops back and forth as to whether or not she is making the right decision or the biggest mistake of her life.
