CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Mice And Marriage by author Sophie Dawson‘s, a sweet clean romance, holds the reader‘s attention from the first pages. Dawson included mystery in her plot lines which will intrigue the reader. She had several plot threads to bring together for a successful finale of this book. With clear prose, well-developed characters, and skillful plotting, Sophie Dawson, created a solid romance novel. Dawson held the mystery of Turner close to her chest; she did not reveal the nature of Turner’s business trips until the last possible moment. Her scenes transitioned smoothly and her writing flowed well from scene to scene making Mice And Marriage easy to read.
Dawson created wonderful character’s for Mice And Marriage. You will love Noelle and Turner; they compliment each other so well. Including the Noelle’s boys and a cast of secondary characters enriched the story. The boys are typical youngsters fill of energy and life, as well as, well-behaved. Noelle’s active in her brother’s church and raises them in the Christian faith.
Turner, although saved, had wondered away the church until he met Noelle and her sons. He finds himself immersed in his Christian faith and prayer once again. Turner’s not your usual ultra rich playboy; he is a good man with great responsibility and he carries a load of guilt. But Noelle and her boys give him a new outlook on life and love. I loved watching them dance around the relationship issue; each determined in their own way to avoid involvement. Turner because of his “so-called” business trips; Noelle because of past hurt and the possibility her sons will be hurt even more this time.
Every good romance must have an antagonist; Dawson crafted a dilly in Noelle’s ex-husband Brad. You will love to hate him and his “like” new girlfriend. Every other word out of the girlfriends mouth is “like”; Brad adapted her speech pattern. These two will raise your ire. What pieces of work they were!
Dawson also included humor in this tale with the inclusion of mice, mice, and more mice. I hate mice, but found this story filled with humor. As a result, I laughed and laughed over the mice episodes; as did Noelle’s boys and Turner. This is a very sweet inspirational romance with family dynamics, Christian friends, and mystery. Dawson had no need of fluff or sex to fill the pages; her writing talent alone carries the story. I would not hesitate to buy this book for myself or a friend.
