  • Outdated and stale

    There were a few things that I liked about this book but so much more that were issues. The book starts out with a grown woman mocking a teenager for how she dressed and looked. This was neither smart or endearing, and really made me dislike our supposed heroine from the start. Then there was the constant character dumps, and I mean every other page take a page to explain who was who and how they were connected, and then it was all explained again, and then again, and then again. Of course, by the time that ended, there were new characters to have explained in pages long connections, and at least twice, if not three times. For someone who supposedly had no family, there was a lot of explanations of the family she did have. So why not one star? Well, I did like the teenager, she was a real character and pretty normal amidst the high and mighty preachy adults. I also thought our hero was okay, even if he was mostly two-dimensional. Like I said, there were a few things I liked but mostly this was a chore to read and had very little meat to the story or the characters

  • Mostly a miss due to a terrible heroine

    I ended up with very complicated feelings about this book. To start I want to say that I am a huge fan of this author and this series in particular. Her books are like comfort food for me. I know what to expect and I generally love it. That being said, I am shocked to admit how much I struggled with this book and honestly I feel that mainly that is because of the heroine, Gaby. A more unlikable female lead I have never had the misfortune to come across. Even my fierce dislike wasn't simple because I felt that I should feel sympathetic towards this character but couldn't manage to do so. Honestly, this left me mad and sad and feeling flat out bad about myself for not being a kinder person and that was so not what I was looking for or wanted. Sadly this was mostly a miss as far as I was concerned. This is my candid review that I am posting of my own accord.

  • Kind of misleading

    Liked the story but the end left you “dangling” . Did she have a boy or girl, were they able to stop her cousin and did her grandfather get to find someone to take on his case and finally how did her grandmother make out with her dance instructor? It’s the first time one of her books has left me wit so many questions

  • Didn't warm to it

    Notorious by Diana Palmer Long, Tall Texans #51 A heroine helping her grandmother stoops to fibbing and infiltrating the home of a high-powered lawyer. Gaby and Nicholas will fall for one another eventually and his niece, Jackie, ends up playing a part in the story as do both of their families. This is a book I started and immediately found myself disliking both main lead characters and not warming to them by page fifty decided to skimmed ahead to see if I might find them more likable later. Sadly, I did not and couldn’t relate to the storyline. Thank you to NetGalley and HQN for the ARC – This is my honest review. 2-3 Stars

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Surprised to learn that this was a 2021 book.

    Audiobook Review: Overall – 3 Performance – 4 Story – 3 I was surprised to learn that this was first published in 2021. I requested a review copy of this audiobook because I’ve come to love Todd McLaren’s voice (even though his female voices still make me cringe a bit). There’s just something about the timber of it that I find soothing. Because the Diana Palmer books tend to be such that I don’t need to listen to the text carefully, I can multi-task with no problem and just enjoy listening to Todd’s voice. I’ve only recently started to read/listen to books by Diana Palmer and most of them were written over 20 years ago. I was able to excuse a lot of the language, attitudes towards women, etc. in those early books because things were much different in the romance world back then. If the original publication date for this book really is in 2021 then I’m afraid that some of the things contained in this story are head-banging worthy for this day and age. I won’t go into details because other reviewers have already done that. I will say that I did enjoy the story enough to finish listening to the audiobook (mostly due to Todd McLaren) and I just ignored the parts that made me cringe. A complimentary copy of this audiobook was provided to me at my request but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author and/or narrator.
