Love Walked In

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jul 29, 2007 in Books I'm Reading |

I finished another book this week – Love Walked In by Merisa de los Santos.  I picked it up on a whim when I bought a bunch of other books.  The other books I purchased that day were more serious with heavier topics – this one I thought would be a nice, light read.

And that’s pretty much what it was, but different from most books where it’s just a boy-meets-girl, boy-and-girl-fall-in-love, something-keeps-boy-and-girl-from-getting-together, love-wins-out-in-the-end story.

Love Walked In is about a single, working woman named Cornelia who is looking for love and thinks she finds it in Martin, a sophisticated, witty man.  But when she finds out that Martin has a daughter, Clare, that he hasn’t told her about…and when Clare’s mom has basically a nervous breakdown and abandons Clare, Cornelia steps in as a mother figure and uses maternal instincts that she didn’t know she had. 

It’s a pretty good story, but…why is it whenever there is a man and a woman in a story who are good friends, they have to end up falling in love with each other in the end?  Why can’t they just stay friends?  In this book, Cornelia ends up falling in love with a childhood friend (who also happens to be her sister’s husband) and I wish she didn’t. 

Other than that, this was a nice summer read.
