Mulligan Girl - Rebecca L. Boschee (Contemporary Romance)

Released February 24, 2010

I have this minor issue with all Avalon Romances. In general, they are very similar to Harlequin or Silhouette romances, short and sweet and great when you want a character driven romance that doesn't take days to read. Given that, the publisher releases them in hardcover so the price is much higher. In this economy, I know I can't afford to pay $25 for a book that I'll read once and then pass on.

In Mulligan Girl, Ren Edwards has a dream career. She's paid to go shopping and evaluate customer service and sales. Using a fake persona, she heads online to a trendy golf club and purchases an anniversary present for her non-existent husband. Little does she know this purchase is going to change her life.

Despite the fact that the online purchase gets botched, the manager does all he can to make things right, including free golf and spa treatments. Once Ren meets him, she falls head over heels. Unfortunately, he thinks she's married and she doesn't know how to tell him the truth.

Mulligan Girl is a fast-paced story that pulls you into the story. I find the downfall is that it isn't a book I'll be talking about months or even weeks from now. It's good, but not outstanding. It would be suitable for teen romance fans though. Language is appropriate and the material is never overly sexual or over the top for the younger romance reader.
