A fairy-tale vacation—if he can get the ending right.
American nurse Finch Mason steps beyond the comfort of his orderly life and takes a dream trip to England, complete with a National Trust Pass so he can visit numerous historical sites. At the first one on his list, he’s warmly welcomed—and told he bought a pass good for two.
Finch doesn’t hesitate to offer the pass to Benedict, a handsome Brit also there on an outing. They spend a magical week touring the countryside, and while it’s too soon to get attached, Finch wishes their time together would never end.
Then Finch finds himself stuck abroad with no money, and he has no one to turn to but Benedict. Benedict is happy to help, but he also owes Finch some answers—such as who he really is and why he was at the estate where they first met.
I really tried to be able to get into this read but it was just not happening. I am not sure exactly what the problem was but after reading this book for almost an hour and half I finally just put it down.
I have read books by Elle Brownlee in the pat and did not have the issues with being able to get into the book but I guess that at some point there will be a book that a reader will not enjoy and this is the one for me.
I cannot honestly pinpoint exactly what the problem was with me liking this book except other then the fact that I felt like every interaction between the two main characters, Finch and Benedict, was long and drawn out. It made it extremely hard for me to be able to take in exactly what was going on and retain it.
When I find myself not being able to picture a book as I read it, I find that I am unable to enjoy the book because when I read I do so to relax and kind of let go for a little while. That was impossible with this read for me because I found that I was constantly thinking back on what had happened before in the scene to try and remember what the setting and the plot is.
Just because I did not enjoy this read, I do not for see that being the case for everyone who reads this book. I believe that others will enjoy this read more then I did, especially those readers that like to read a book that is extremely detailed. For me I am one of hose people that likes the details of what is going on but only enough to get an idea of what is happening so that way I can let my mind picture it the way that it wants. For me detail overload interferes with my imagination and that is what makes a book not so enjoyable for me personally.
This book will not negatively impact me from reading more of Elle Brownlee’s books in the future. It is just what opposite actually because I want to read more from Elle to see if this is just a fluke. I do believe that is the case.
