BookSneeze book review

I recently read Love on a Dime by Cara Lynn James, as part of the Book Sneeze review program.

It's the turn of the century and Lilly Westbrook is spending her summer in Rhode Island with her family and soon to be fiancee. She's trying to keep her private life as a dime novelist a secret from her family and friends while New York's top gossip writer threatens to reveal her identity to high society. She's also attempting to move on in her personal life from a former beau leaving her, with practically no explanation.  Of course, about the time she thinks she's over him and ready to wed her current suitor, Jackson waltzes back into her life.  He's also invading her secret world, since he's acquired the publishing house for her novels. Can Lilly sort out her problems and find the answers needed to give her peace without embarrassing herself and everyone she loves?

While the premise of this book seemed exciting and full of promise, I was slightly disappointed with the actual story.  The book seemed to drag on a bit and then the ending felt rushed. I did enjoy reading it, but it's not at the top of my list.  This was Cara Lynn's first novel and I do see room to grow and look forward to reading any more books she writes!
