Hi girls! Guess what… My book release tour starts tomorrow. CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE THIS!? My second book is coming into this world. I can’t believe it. But for now, here’s a book review for My Dear Miss Dupre…
Wow this book was like eating a twinkie. Super sweet, sugary, and with nothing behind it.
I liked Willow, and I especially liked that she and her sisters answered to boy names “Will, Phil, and Bill.” XD
Teddy and Cullen were awesome too. Cullen reminded me of the man who will always be my comparison for this style of male, Major Phillip Camden from On Wings of Devotion by Roseanna M. White. But he will never measure up to Phillip.
Very cliche. Very sweet. I always love a good read from this era and I was not disappointed in reading this one. It was romantic, suspenseful, heartbreaking and awful at the same time. A good mix. That being said, I didn’t love the way the ending played out with Fritz and Cullen (even if I did like the way it ended). Again, so much fluff, nothing really worth much.
There were kisses, Cullen was a boxer in his past life, some mentions of blood, having mistresses. There were a few fights, some manipulation, and a horrid dude that didn’t stop to get what he wanted (the Dupre sugar business).
I do want to say I appreciated the author’s approach to this being Christian fiction. The characters called to God often, especially Cullen, and I find it so very relatable, even if this isn’t a preachy book. Often Christian fiction gets off with just mentioning God once or twice, but this one wove Him into the plot and allowed a lesson to be taught, as shallow as the rest of the book was.
Four stars! Thank you to the author and the publisher for a free copy of My Dear Miss Dupre! A positive review was not required and all opinions are my own. Really this was a cliche love story with a cliche love triangle (Square?) but if you’re looking for a simple read full of fluff, then maybe it’s for you.
Be sure to come back tomorrow for the book tour for Playgrounds and Black Markers!
