I liked the uncommon set up of the book being an interracial couple and how the author addresses some members’ of society problem with that, and she does without becoming political or preachy or long-winded. I also liked that the 2 main characters, Tom and Willie (aka Wilhelmina), were not perfect people physically and were also in their 40s. As a result, the time they took and their level of consideration in getting together was refreshing. However, they seem to be too perfect in every other way and with too-perfect families. Similarly, the problems the couple faced, including a nice doozy of a surprise, were settled all-too easily.
The story has 3 sex scenes. They were not gratuitous, were hot and well done. And the couple seemed to have some chemistry, but I don’t know where it came from. Eventually listeners learn that they have been together about a year, but I have no idea how they met or when. A presumption can be made that it’s through Will’s daughters’ marriages, but it’s never made clear. I don’t know how they became connected and how Will became so tied into Tom’s life. Was it an immediate connection? Did they dislike each other before? What? These answers might be answered in preceding stories in this series, so that might just be my problem. But it would’ve been nice to get a quick synopsis, since we also get a bit of Willie’s backstory in order to understand upcoming critical parts. So knowing how Tom and Willie got together and started to like each other requires the same understanding and explanation, even a short one.
As always loved the book. Cannot wait to see what she does next. I thought I loved the boys and seeing them fall in love. But they have nothing on Tom. :-)
