Review for Lover's Charm, The
Author: Sandy Hingston
Date of Review: 09/09/02
Reviewed by: Bear

Reviewer Comments:

A reluctant heir who has been misunderstood throughout his years of living makes his way back to his homeland only to find more than he expects - his elder twin's plain looking, studious betrothal ; a disagreeable aunt who dislikes him for his blackish reputation while blindly adores his dead brother ; a former childhood friend who has turned into a beautiful widow and to his horror, his brother's final gift to him - high piling debts waiting for him to clear.

And so the story begins. Jack turns out to be more than a simple rake, showing his kindness to those around him and a brain capable enough to solve his financial distress. He has a mistress he can't wait to get back yet he is attracted to Priscilla, his twin's betrothal and there is Vivienne, his childhood friend, who has somehow become a distraction in his life (Hingston never fails to mention Vivienne's breathless speaking manner). Despite its potential, 'Lover's Charm' does not grip my attention. It makes a passable reading but nothing beyond. Even when our hero hurts the woman he is about to marry, it's hard to feel the emotional misery in the heroine because nothing significant has been described. The final explanation to some of the events through the work of (black ?) magic does not quite fit in this otherwise non-fairytale, non-magical story. This being my first Hingston's reading, it is still early to pass judgement. I'll give her other novels a try.
