Ldsounds interesting right its actually not a gust of confusing emotions that s all the book is about the beginning makes a little sense initially but as the story progresses Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesuieu you will want to prickourself with the nearest pointy object the story keeps taking turns abruptly the moment ou feel the story is going to get over there is another twist i am so tired i finished the book and now want to move on to something interesting i think kaled hosseini is next for mei will rate this book 2 This novel was actually the most frustrating thus far in this collection I found it to be full of shit Since when does welfare just swoop in and take a child out of a home because of one report by a disgruntled nanny How ridiculous and the whole novel was WAY too calm This is actually between bad and very bad Imagine a far fetched plot from an Harleuin written in the 80s the hero is forced to get engaged or married for totally irrealistic business reasons Multiply it by 2 because now we are in the 20s euality is finally there and the heroine should also suffer from her own life wrenching dilemna her kid being prevented to live with her because a former nanny had complained that she was an unfit mother while this same former nanny had been sacked for having left the child alone in the car on a parking lot under #The Eh Come #sun Eh come I know that down under some things might not work exactly as in the Northern but this nobody can believeAdd to that a very childish and immature behavior and thoughts of both main characters And ou ve got the sure recipy for the ultimate third rate dudThe timeline also has nothing realistic to redeem the stupid plots One week fake engagement is perceived by both as than enough to convince the family the lawyers the social services that they both are serious persons able of real long term and solid commitments and that they are trustworthyIt was obviously short and by moments so full of clich s and inconsistencies that I smiled and almost laughed out loud As I m notsure it was the intended effect it does not deserve any additionalstar for that fun Good book Gemma has temporarily lost custody of her daughter due to lies told by a former nanny In order to get her daughter back she needs to show that she has steady employment a stable relationship wouldn t hurt either Gabriel needs a fiancee to get control of the family bank so that business can get back Any excuse to get her back Luckily he needs a fiancée to regain control of his family's business and he wants Gemma for the partGabriel's proposition is truly unexpected though exactly wha. .
