I feel I should say before I get into my review that this is not my normal genre of book. . So I started reading this book feeling a little pensive of whether I would like the book, never mind enjoy it! I was given the ecopy of this book by the lovely author Lisa April Smith, so I kind of feel guilty for not liking it more than I did.

This was the first book I read by Lisa April Smith and unfortunately I was hard pressed to even rate this title with a 2 and not a win. While the subject matter of the book could have worked, the author had too many stories going on. And as if that wasn't enough, the characters were mean and nasty people I would not like to have as friends. I just realized that there is a sequel to this book. While I generally love sequels and series, I'm not sure I am going to read a sequel to a book that I rated so low.

Exceeding Expectations By Lisa April Smith There are only two things that mean anything to Jack Morgan, his daughters, and in order to protect them he must fake his own suicide. His youngest daughter Charlotte is twenty three and after years of having her every whim tended to by her father when he dies and leaves her penniless she has no idea what she is going to do. With her older sister in a “clinic” due to having a mental breakdown after the news of her father’s suicide Charlotte knows she must do something to make money, after a suggestion from a friendly lawyer she tries her hand at modeling soon she finds the independence she craves all the while she investigates why her father had to take his own life uncovering disturbing things along the way. Lisa April Smith does a wonderful job not only with capturing the nineteen sixties vividly yet subtly but also in enveloping not one but two beautiful romances with glimpses back to pre- World War Two encompassing the love Charlotte’s mother and father found in each other. Even though there is a splendid romance between Charlotte and Raul this story was more about Charlotte and the pain she must overcome after losing her father and then finding a way to support herself and become independent all while searching for answers it is so well written, you find yourself easily lost in the story. I don’t usually compare authors to one another but I must say, Look out Danielle Steel it seems you have some competition for writing intriguing dramatic novels.

The characters are well written and descriptions of people and places in the book are also good, but as I swear by my policy to also be totally truthful I have to say this was just not my type of book. I hope this does not offend the lovely author Lisa April Smith as there is nothing particularly bad or negative about the book its just not my cup of tea, sorry. Having said all that, please do not let my review put you off giving this book a go. As I always say it wouldn't be realistic for us all to like the same thing. I prefer YA aimed or paranormal type books so this one was totally out of my reading comfort zone.
