Reagan is the damaged and tormented Photojournalist, withdrawn and struggling to survive. Shelby is the daughter of an exclusive hotel chain owner. They are brought together for a fantastical wedding party where their siblings are destined to marry, among scheduled breakfasts and fights over bridesmaids dresses.
There is an instant attraction. But Reagan is far too damaged to want more than instant gratification and Shelby knows women just want her money. So while they arrive at an uneasy truce and start to enjoy time together escaping the ridiculous pomp and ceremony, there is no way either would be interested in more.
As always with Gerri Hill’s books the characters are complex and engaging. Both our main protagonists and a range of secondary characters are quickly drawn in with a skilful touch that makes them very real.
The scenery in this novel is magnificent and exceedingly well drawn. Without ever being heavy-handed Ms Hill enables us to imagine the views and relish the freedom.
Gerri Hill has written a lot of very good romances, yet manages to keep them fresh and new. Chasing a Brighter Blue is an excellent example of the best sort of lesfic romance – light and easy to read, but engaging and three-dimensional. Definitely one for the re-read pile.
