A Lovely Drop by Darynda Jones
Plot overview: Andrea has the ability to time travel (essentially...it’s a little more complicated than that) and witness crimes. She’s “asked” (forced, really) to help a sexy Special Agent do just that.
This isn’t so much a romance novel as it is a novella that I could see being a great series starter. I’m not sure what the plans are for this book/series, but here’s what I love.
Frankly, the only thing I wasn’t crazy about in this story was the length. It was too short to provide a lot of “getting to know you” moments between the characters. What they had was more of a deep sexual attraction than a “romance”, per se. I wanted more, I guess. But in the context of a short story, it was pretty awesome. (If it had been a full-length romance, though, it would have been MIND BLOWING. Just sayin’.)
But, long-story-short, if this was a series starter and there are full-length novels on the horizon, I will 1-click every last one of those full-length with a quickness, because this was a fun read.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It’s far, far, FAR from stigma-y. No rehab needed.
