After being dumped by her second
fiancé, Cassandra Adams is tired of men who won’t commit.
She wants to marry and have a family, and then there’s the
additional issue of an inheritance that she can’t claim
unless she gets married before her twenty-eighth birthday.
She decides to look online for someone who wants to get
married, and love will come after.
Jason Alexander, bartender of the Last
Resort in Ketchikan, Alaska, is outraged when he finds out
that several of his friends have been duped out of money by
a “Miss Lonely Hearts” scammer online. He’s determined to
catch the woman, and when Cassandra emails him he thinks
he’s nabbed the con artist. Will he realize his mistake in
time to put things right?
Miss Lonely Hearts is a cute story of personal
ads, mistaken identity, and meeting the right person just
when you need them. Although I thought Cassandra was rather
foolhardy to go to Alaska to meet a man she’d only known
online for a short time, I admired her optimism and refusal
to be defeated. Jason’s loyalty to his friends was
admirable as well. The love scenes between the two of them
were hot. While Miss Lonely Hearts has
several tried-and-true themes and elements, Charlene Teglia
has combined them to create a story that is charming and
fun. Don’t expect angst and deep conflict, but as a quick,
fun read Miss Lonely Hearts is definitely
worth a read.
