basically the entire plot Olivia Marston half heartedly accepts a marriage proposal from her childhood best friend Billy because she doesn t want to break his heart before he gets shipped out into the

Practically perfect in every way Just a little too perfect I mean, he s tall, blonde, muscular and handsome He has washboard abs so defined you could probably grate cheese on them He speaks both German and English, and by some miracle, is able to speak English without a German accent don t even begin to ask me how that happens He s noble, he s kind, he s brave He willingly runs into a burning barn and magically calms down the horses enough to get them out He jumps in front a moving truck drivin by the town drunk to save a woman he barely even knows, giving himself two concussions in the

living in Germany, and due to a pesky technicality, he had to fight for German Reich instead of the American Army While being transferred to an American POW camp, the train he is on turns over and catches fire, giving him an opportunity to escape alongside his extremely psychotic chain mateon him later Falling in love wasn t part of the process, but he just can t resist his little self when he sees Olivia Marston Don t Make Me Call the Bear Jew Speaking of said psychotic chain mate, Otto is said chain mate to Peter And unfortunately, he s the exact polar opposite of Peter Aka, he s the stereotypical psychotic Nazi that Hitler would be proud of He wants nothingthan to strike fear into the heart of those who oppose the Nazi regime and spread the Hitler word as if it were the hospital Cause why not, right And how does he manage to do that By becoming a serial arsonist and later coming up with the extremely bright idea to kill someone This plotline was way to overdone and outlandish for me to even take it seriously enough to include it here, but it s a part of the story, so what can you do I know the author was trying to be serious, but it came off assilly and contrived than anything else.I Won t Say I m In Like, But I Kind of Am If I could describe this book, it would be a Hallmark movie in book form Because Lord Almighty, if passages about falling in love at first sight and knowing that that person is the one for you and , Oh my gosh, I ve never seen anyonegorgeous in my entire life even though I m barely over the age of twenty and descriptions of kisses so passionate and deep that you ll either start to reexamine your own kissing experience of mentally gag, then this book would qualify It s unapologetically mushy and gushy and sentimental, and the author lays it on thick And I think that s why her books have been so popular over the years They re simple, plain, straightforward love stories that will provide a little fluff to a person s life She does capture that nostalgic of old time love, and man, do they not make those type of love stories any I ll admit I m a total sucker occasionally for a romance set during the 1940s and 1950s, simply because it seemed to be a much simpler time So she gets that part, but jaded modern readers will probably turn their nose up at this This being my very first Dorothy Garlock book, I can t say if any of her other books are written like this However, if they are, then I would compare Garlock to Danielle Steel, another extremely popular romance writer They had very similar descriptions of characters and the writing style was generally very similar to hers If you like Steel, you ll like Garlock If you don t like Steel, you won t like this one And despite a pretty vanilla plot and characters who are better suited to a Hallmark special than real life, this book is one I would recommend if you want an ooey gooey romance filled with grand declarations of love and small town charm

    I enjoyed reading this book, which takes place in Wisconsin in the mid 1940 s Olivia is a young lady who reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal from Billy who is her best friend, but whom she does not love in a romantic way Then less than a week later she unexpectedly meets Peter, a German prisoner of war who escapes from a train that is bringing him and other POW s to a prison camp across the country Peter conceals his identity in order to have a chance with Olivia, who of course, falls I enjoyed reading this book, which takes place in Wisconsin in the mid 1940 s Olivia is a young lady who reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal from Billy who is her best friend, but whom she does not love in a romantic way Then less than a week later she unexpectedly meets Peter, a German prisoner of war who escapes from a train that is bringing him and other POW s to a prison camp across the country Peter conceals his identity in order to have a chance with Olivia, who of course, falls in love with him instantly There were some parts to the story that I did find annoying, like how quickly Peter and Olivia fall in love with each other even though they know nothing about each other and just met The whole story moves rather quickly, with Olivia getting engaged, meeting Peter, breaking her engagement with Billy, and having relations with Peter in a relatively short amount of time like a two week period I also did not like how everyone just accepts Peter, this stranger in their midst, and nobody ever really questions where he came from and what he is doing in their small remote town And why does he not have a German accent..at all Why does nobody question the coincidence of unusual events happening in the town right after Peter arrives I think some parts of the story were a bit unbelievable So, while I did enjoy reading the book, I had to suspend my belief in reality for a bit while I read it

    First time reading this author I was a little disappointed it started out so well then introduced a harlequin type girl who proceeds to fall into bed with a stranger soon after meeting I just expected a cleaner storysensible heroine Will try another book maybe


  4. Katie Katie says:

    Not a huge fan of this book I found the writing a bit basic and there wasn t a great deal of description to add colour to the story The plot itself was okay I found the fact that their romance grew so quickly kind of unrealistic I know it was supposed to be a love at first sight kind of situation but I found it unbelievable and without substance.A relatively short novel that was easy to get through Although it lacked something and doesn t leave me with any lasting impressions.


  5. Liza Liza says:

    Disappointing Not only was I not particularly interested in the plot or invested in the characters or their lives, I found myself skipping paragraphs after 34% I was curious as to how they d resolve the main issue, but didn t really care Which is a shame, since I m pretty sure I ve enjoyed other books by Dorothy Garlock.

    The story was a good one, however, I was worn out by Ms Garlock s repetitive narration This book could have been half as long if she had only told the readers something once It s a story of boy meets girl, girl is engaged to another boy who has been her friend since childhood, new boy is full of mystery, etc Peter is a captured German prisoner of war who escapes during a train wreck on the way to the prison camp He is chained to another prisoner, Otto, who is mean and brutal They finally ge The story was a good one, however, I was worn out by Ms Garlock s repetitive narration This book could have been half as long if she had only told the readers something once It s a story of boy meets girl, girl is engaged to another boy who has been her friend since childhood, new boy is full of mystery, etc Peter is a captured German prisoner of war who escapes during a train wreck on the way to the prison camp He is chained to another prisoner, Otto, who is mean and brutal They finally get the shackles off and Peter goes into the closest town for food There he meets Olivia and saves her from being run over by a drunk driver, but he is injured She takes him to her parents home and nurses him Her father is the sheriff Fires start breaking out in the town and Peter believes the mean prisoner is behind them, but he s already lied about where he came from and what he s doing in the town, so he can t tell the sheriff about Otto Peter becomes a hero by saving horses from one fire and the sheriff and his family from another Meanwhile Olivia and Peter fall in love and, of course, jump into bed after she breaks her engagement to Billy After they make love Peter knows he has to tell the truth, but the fire at the sheriff s house happens to delay the truth telling By the time the whole story comes out Peter is a hero and the sheriff manages to get him a light sentence so he can come back and marry Olivia

    Before this novel, I had never heard of Dorothy Garlock After this novel, I want to find any and every book she has ever written and BINGE This story takes place in the 1940s, the time of WWII Normally, I find older set books hard to follow whether it be because of lack of relation to the times or the old, broken English many authors use Garlock writes an incredible story of love and lust A true page turner that has you hoping and wondering all the way to the last word.
