about clean slates and mystery of the unknown I had problems getting into this story and almost gave up on it around page 70 The dialogue didn t ring true with the actions But then Ms Blake found her pace and the story became compelling Though the style lacked polish and some of the plot devices seemed implausible, the differences in John and Jack were believable, as was Julia s attraction to both personalities This was a nice first for Ms Blake Would Be WifeAugust 29, 2002Talented newcomer Kasi Blake makes her Intrigue debut with Would Be Wife Two years after Julia Keller s husband was killed,

Intrigue in six months with this premise man who looks like woman s presumed dead true love appears and the Texas ranch setting and amnesia plot device are things most romance readers have seem a

the book almost against my will and kept me involved Her characters are compelling and sympathetic, and though they make some choices that defy logic at times, I never thought they were stupid I d rather see characters being overly cautious than foolishly reckless Her writing and pacing are unusually smooth for a first time writer If she hasn t been published before, then she is an amazingly polished debut author A good cast of secondary characters add to the drama in a story that is a solid blend of romance and mystery The best thing I can say is that I was so unexcited about this book that had to make myself pick it up to read it, and once I did I never put it down A good one sitting read.Anyone who s not too tired of stories like this might want to try Would Be Wife to discover an author worth watching I really liked the concept that no one really knew for sure if John Smith was Jack Keller The story was very complex, especially for a Harlequin and kept me guessing up to the

dead guy, neither his wife, brother or mother asked himthan a couple of questions or checked with a doctor or hospital regarding his condition or story, No one checked to see if he had scars to match what Jack would have had But all in all it was an engrossing read
