More tepid than hot…

Hotshot (Buchanan-Renard #11)Hotshot by Julie Garwood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hmm I didn’t think this book was up to par. Garwood usually delivers a tighter plot with decent character development and fairly good sense of humour.
This lacked all of the above.
I wonder if the fact that this book tries to bring the topic of sexual harassment in the workplace to the forefront, played a role in those factors or the lack thereof. Perhaps Garwood was trying to give it a more serious tone.
That might have worked if some of the scenarios hadn’t seemed implausible.
Things like a someone managing to find the heroine on a highway in a snowstorm despite her leaving at least a few hours ahead of him or the glaringly obvious ‘mysterious’ vandal. I won’t even go into the tripe Peyton swallows about not being allowed to file a complaint about the harassment.
Overall it was the inkling of a serious topic packed into the folds of a fluffy marshmallow read.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
