      I've been enjoying reading the entries of everyone regarding this Fern Michaels book. I've never been a fan of FM. Her romance writing style is something that was popular 20 years ago and is no longer relevant to today's romance readers.

      1. I do not care what color my heroine's walls are or for that matter what style she chose to decorate her house in. Truly irrelevant information, especially when it is offered up by the heroine herself.
      2. I also do not care what she wears. Please refrain from describing the cute pantsuit she chose to wear that day or the sweatpants she changes into. It doesn't matter.
      3. Women do not pretend to be strong, they do not put up a face in front of their male co-workers in order to be taken seriously. We ARE strong and we do not wish to wail and cry when we don't get the things we want. Only immature people (male or female) do this.

      Ms. Michaels continues to write in the style that has worked well for her and has established a following. However her choice to do this will not gain her any new readers. I would like to see the book club take a chance with some newer authors.
