CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

The reasons behind Wyatt’s desertion of Sandy all those years ago empathized what a good man Wyatt was; he’s one with a deep sense of responsibility. Add in his adorable daughter, Charlotte, and the reader will lose their heart. What a sweet child.
Also, you will love to hate the mothers. What pieces of work. Excellent work, Ms. Pinder, in creating obnoxious villains. Sandy is a hard-working woman, who never loved again.

Will romance bloom in sunny California for Eva and Brandon? Romance book reviews of Favorite Coffee Favorite Scandal follow.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Victoria Pinder took a role I did not like from earlier books and developed Eva into a likable maturing person. A standalone read, I subject you read the previous books to give you character and story depth. Eva’s development and maturity begins after she finds herself pregnant.
She’s determined to raise her child in a secure, loving environment. Eva’s also a person of moral character as she believes in paying her debts; which is how she finds herself broke. Brandon’s the answer to her prayers. Pinder developed Eva from a woman with many insecurities to one who knows her worth.
Brandon’s a knight in shining armor. I loved his determination to care for Eva and her baby; not realizing emotions will begin to play a part in their relationship. Pinder built the romance between Eva and Brandon slowly as each wrestled with their past and insecurities. Brandon knows something about Eva’s past which no one else knows; resulting in how Eva saw herself and her qualities.
Of course, all good stories must have an antagonist. Pinder gave Brandon and Eva a dilly. I disliked him from the get-go. Selfish, filthy rich, and obnoxious, he is determined to make Eva’s life hell. However, he had not counted on Brandon’s fierce protectiveness
As a result of skillful composition, I found Pinder‘s character’s well-developed with plotting which kept me intrigued until the last page. The pace is in line with the length of the book and her scenes transition smoothly. I found her characters realistic and believable. Needless to say, this book‘s an easy read which held my attention. Plus, Pinder included characters from earlier books; giving us a look at their current life and the latest gossip.
Perfect for a lazy afternoon of reading in your favorite chair as you follow the latest adventures of the Marshall family. As a conclusion, I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
