Rainshadow Road (Friday Harbor)

Rainshadow Road - Lisa Kleypas 3.5 stars. This is definitely not as good or compelling as Kleypas's other series such as the Wallflowers, the Hathaways, or the Travises. However, it still has that pull and well written format that defines Lisa Kleypas's books. I was disappointed with the first in the Friday Harbor series, disappointed in that it was not a typical Lisa Kleypas book. Rainshadow Road is better than Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, but it won't knock you over with amazement. The magical realism element was not particularly well done and the story would have been fine without it. I am not sure why it was included in the story. Rainshadow Road is, however, pleasant and fun. And I recommend it for fans of contemporary romance and Lisa Kleypas.
