Dare I admit that I have never read a Lisa Kleypas book? I’ve heard her name here and there on various blogs but never quite got around to looking her up, until recently. Dear Author and Smart Bitches have both recently run reviews of her latest release, Smooth Talking Stranger, so I thought, right – it’s time to give her a try.
Unfortunately, the bookstores in Cairo aren’t all I could wish for and her book isn’t available on ebookwise.com (yet) Instead, I had to make due buying four of her historicals instead. Though I’m bummed I’ll have to wait on this one a while – I love love love a good contemporary – I am very much looking forward to reading the others. I have only recently discovered how much I love historicals too.
Anyway, for those of you who *do* have good bookstores available to you, here is the book blurb. I’ll live vicariously through you…
Ella Varner has it all–a successful career as an advice columnist, a handsome boyfriend, and a circle of friends in Austin. When anyone has a problem, Ella knows the answers.
But one night she receives a call that changes everything. And as Ella’s world is turned upside-down, she meets a man who is the opposite of everything she ever wanted . . . a man who will offer her the most irresistible challenge she has ever known . . .
