Review – Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas

A few days later, Lord and Lady Westcliff, the Hathaways’ neighbors, hold a private ball. What began as Beatrix’s innocent deception has resulted in the agony of unfulfilled love—and a passion that can’t be denied.

I loved seeing her continually, and patiently, helping Christopher, and of course her interactions with her family were entertaining. Born to Be Klegpas. In tune with nature and all its creatures, she was a compassionate, loyal, patient and loving woman. But that’s okay with Beatrix, aftenoon she much prefers the company of animals over humans. Don’t get me wrong – although there is not as much going on as early in the book as Kleypas usually writes, the chemistry and tension between Beatrix and Christopher is fabulous throughout.

Because while it was easy to root for these delightful eccentric siblings to find love, those they were matched with were as deserving of happiness as the Hathaways themselves. Arternoon as much as the next Kleypas fan, so before you revolt, that was not a slight towards him!


Give me a dozen more Hathaways and it still won’t be enough! The ,isa that Christopher talks about Beatrix – both the letter-writer and the woman – will have you swooning and grinning like a madwoman.
