    1. This is a book with a wow factor It has all the elements that make the older HP books sizzle, crack, and pop The ruthless hero, the great dialogue, and the crazy demands that you can only read about in a Harlequin Presents novel One of my friends on GRs, you know who you are, raves about this book, and she s never wrong about HPs being awesome She was right again I won t lie about my love of stalkerific heroes, and Matt makes my list He was just wow I had no doubts that this man couldn t live wi [...]


    2. Re Lingering Melody let s just all know that I am a HUGE PW fan girl, so while her writing does have some very valid criticisms especially in her feminine, delicate almost TSTL h s and very, very Alpha H s I just don t care I am biased, I like her h s usually and her H s tend to grow on me by the end even tho they do all those H things I hate, like bully, blackmail and order people about and seem to enjoy it and NEVER explain themselves until the very, very end Something about PW s writing reall [...]


    3. It was ok Maybe it was just my mood, because it had several tropes I generally enjoy Blackmail, vengeful hero, forced marriage.Something about it just didn t resonate with me Not sure I can put my finger on it For example, most of the big misunderstandings in HPlandia are stupid That s a given But for some reason this one got on my nerves.H h are living together She s only 19 at the time and he s in his thirties He gets a letter and suddenly has to go to America for a few weeks No explanation re [...]


    4. I think the first and biggest trope we have to deal with is the what we have here failure to communicate trope at work.youtube watch v V2f MThe h is young, virginal, and very innocent kind of a hayseed from Yorkshire, comes to the big bad city to become a secretary At a bizarre calling call reception that smacked of a Regency ball to find a husband, fledgling secretaries in training are looked over by prospective suitors bosses The h sees the H from across the room and the angels weep He is much [...]


    5. This is a second chance story with a misunderstanding Heroine thought the hero was cheating on her, but he wasn t Yes, those are a dime a dozen in HPlandia, but this one stands out because Hero seeks his revenge for the heroine leaving him four years before by putting her cousin out of business Hero has spent a lot of time putting this revenge plan in motion.Heroine has twin girls and an imaginary husband namedGeorge GlassKevin Henley Hero is jealous of imaginary husband.In a flashback, H h have [...]


    6. This book is like Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way Full of drama and angst, misunderstandings, true love and noble sacrifice with an added dash of secret babies I loved the melodrama of it all The heroine Carrie left the hero Matt four years ago when he ran off to America to go to the side of his former lover Now he has tracked her down and threatened to ruin her cousin Allan if she doesn t marry him.One of the strong points of the book is that the secondary characters are so well [...]


    7. For me, this was a difficult readd actually offended me He was an extremely, vindictive abusive man and she was a very submissive woman view spoiler In fact at one point, he actually disgusts himself, when he attempts to rape her Of course it s not actually rape, because she turns all passionate on him Now how a woman can get all passionate over a man who is about to rape her, I don t get hide spoiler I would avoid this one.


    8. This truly a wonderful classic old skool HP It has secret babies twins , blackmail, major misunderstandings and plenty of angst Not only does it have all the major tropes but it is well written, has great characters and a wonderful HEA.


    9. Like another reviewer said the hero treated the heroine like a queen so her insecurities didn t seem valid to me Poor man he was so gentle and protective of the heroine and of her kids even when he thought she abandoned him, married another guy and had his children It was a torment for him to be jealous of a ghost and he came across as possessive but not at all cruel I liked the heroine as well She was a bit too naive but then again she was a very young and sheltered woman so I can forgive her s [...]


    10. I m on a Patricia Wilson kick This one was sweet but perhaps not overly memorable I thought their separation misunderstanding was pretty unnecessary, the h really stretched for an excuse to feel betrayed, but nonetheless it was nice reading about his endless yearning for her Why did you do this lovely thing, Matt He turned away, his hands in his pockets, his face out of her sight Maybe I love you Aww


    11. Turns out I had read this one before I liked everything except the reason she left him She does it without confronting him and he stupidly does not tell her where he s going or why It didn t make any sense, but without it there would be no separation and no story to tell.



    12. 4 Stars After a bad relationship in his 20 s, Matt had devoted his life to making his business a success Meeting Carrie, an innocent and very young student, threw him for a loop Against his better judgement, he couldn t keep away from her And when she completed her course to gain secretarial skills, he asked her to move in with him They were very much in love, always together But Carrie had felt a little overwhelmed by Matt, and as he had never told her he loved her, she felt a little insecure a [...]


    13. I liked this one except for H s explanation about his abrupt departure view spoiler his lying ex was dying hide spoiler and why he didn t call h view spoiler didn t want to taint h s innocence or some BS hide spoiler Kind of lame so rating dropped 2.5 stars.


    14. Have I ever mentioned how much I love reunion romances So long as they have some very important elements First one is that the hero and heroine haven t been sleazing all over the countryside with multiple other lovers in the meantime Ok so that might be a bit of a spoiler But there are plenty of other things to discover about this book.Matt and Carrie lived together as lovers four years ago and when Matt went off without explanation, Carrie left him, believing he d gone to another woman Now she [...]


    15. the heroine killed it 4 me carrie flew away from matt like the devils were after her she never looked back after dat, even when she was pregnant wid the twins matt n the twins had the right 2 no each other, she cheated them, deprived them of each other bcoz she wanted 2 punish matt matt was a gud man it was obvious he fell hard 4 her but was wary bcoz she was so young i thought her behaviour was unforgivable, she was despicable even in the present, she never told him the kids were his, wud not a [...]


    16. What a blind h A fool H treats her like a queen , even after leaving him without a proper msg and for NO REASON Her insecurities are hard to believe , I wish her character was strongly build And this fool doesn t deserve H , she torments him , just too happy with her non existent husband I really felt bad for H , he was helplessly in love with her I can understand her leaving him in the past , she was young and naive but her act of being in love with her ghost of a imaginative husband was just [...]


    17. Okay, this novel was incredibly romantic It made my heartbeat speed up pretty quick I really loved the fact that this is an older harlequin and it dealt with pregnancy and babies BEFORE marriage You don t see many of those around, so this one surprised the heck out of me and made me enjoy it all the The characters were great, the storyline was strong There was some points I didn t quite care for but overall, it s four stars worth of awesome



    18. My first book by Patricia Wilson has left me craving for Lingering Melody was spectacular Carrie and Matt met each other when she was a completely innocent 19 year old and he was a jaded 33 year old He seemingly stalled her Showing up at her school, waiting for her at random times, then blowing hot and cold when they were together She learned from friends that the love of his life lived in America so Carrie assumed his attention was avuncular His intentions were not Even so, the difference betw [...]


    19. Meh Stupid heroine It s different if the OW appeared in a flesh, but no, she s just a name and the heroine could go jealous and scared aaallll the way You want to know Ask.It s so clear that the heroine ran away sheer because her imagination AND it s different too if the hero treated you like a worthless woman, but no, he treated you like a queen and the heroine could feel insecure all damn way to hell So immature Well, i guess it s because her age anyway.The basic plot of the story is so ridicu [...]


    20. Couldn t figure out why he rushed to America when he received the letter from OW The letter was ambiguous and made no reference to her health issue In the end he explains how the OW had treated him and how he had been phasing out his business in America as a way of dissolving their partnership That made the reason for his urgent trip seem rather odd Also odd that if this woman was dying, why did she send a letter with a photo rather than picking up the phone Other things didn t add up as well, f [...]


    21. A lingering Melody is the story of Matt and Carrie.When Carrie returns back to her hometown in England with her twins Pippa and Gemma in tow to help out her brother Alan, she never expects it s all a ruse orchestrated by her ex Matt who wants her at any cost.The highlight of this story, undoubtedly is the hero Matthew.He is utterly devoted, in love with the heroine, wants to take care of the twins and give them his name even before he knows of their paternity, provides her the most beautiful wed [...]


    22. I don t want you getting friendly with any men at all he stated withfrightening intensity, You re mine It s time you were pregnant again, he said coolly, stressing everyword, gripping her tightly as alarm flared again at the coldness of hiswords Don t waste any energy in fighting, he advised quietly, it sgoing to happen With my child inside you, you ll feel less inclined tohang on to a wonderful, lost dream I can t think of anything real and intrusive for a woman than the knowledge that she s ca [...]



    23. The heroine was so annoying Agghh She s not only submissive but she s TSTL She ruined not only her life but that of her children and the man who loved her like crazy She was busy being a martyr and always lapsed into fits of self pity She really got on my nerves I had no idea what she was expecting The hero Matt had told her over and over again how much she meant to him and how much he loved her So much so that he almost had a breakdown when he returned and found her nowhere She had no right to [...]
