Don't think this is my kind of book.


From Publishers Weekly
A blind astronaut and a 27-year-old virgin come together in this sweet but steamy romance set on a beautiful California island. Sexy Yeager Gates is slated to pilot the career-capping Millennium project when a freak accident throws his life off track. He's not only temporarily blinded, but impotent, too. Idyllic Abrigo Island offers the R&R he needs, and the diminutive, energetic form of innkeeper Zoe Cash will speed his healing. Zoe's bed-and-breakfast, Haven House, draws tourists visiting Abrigo's annual Firetail Festival, which celebrates the rare fish that keeps the island economy afloat. Romantic tension builds between the two as they await the firetail migration. Ridgway's smart, peppy style is reminiscent of Jennifer Crusie, but her vulnerable, tough-outside/marshmallow-inside heroine stands on her own. There's a smattering of graphic language, but Ridgway (Big Bad Dad) never gratuitously offends. And a secondary plot involving Zoe's sister, a leukemia survivor, and Yeager's middle-age, cynical friend provides an effective counterpoint to the main love story, making this novel a charmer.

Journal Entry 7 by zosime from Marshfield, Wisconsin USA on Monday, May 21, 2007
Thank you for the wonderful surprise, Noumena! This looks like a fun read.

Curiously, it looks like this book passed through a Marshfield Public Library booksale. I wonder if it came from my Marshfield?

Journal Entry 8 by zosime from Marshfield, Wisconsin USA on Saturday, January 05, 2008
So, on second glance, that said Mansfield library sale or some such thing, not Marshfield. I must have been sleepy that day.

This was a cute book! Not the sort of thing I might have picked up on my own, I found it a fun, light escape, just right after the stress of having a house full of company for the holidays. Even though it was thoroughly predictable, I found myself hurrying to get to the end just to make sure things turned out the way they were supposed to. Thank you so much, Noumena!

Catsalive chose this book as one of her three picks for the Raiding Bookshelves Swap. Since she didn't manage to get the book I played with, I thought she should have this one. I hope you enjoy it, Cats!
