CBR III Review #10 - Wish You Were Here by Phillipa Ashley

“When he’d left her, he’d taken something with him – her ability to trust – and for a long time afterwards, she’d been as wary of men as a pool she couldn’t see the bottom of.”

Eight years after Jack dumped Elizabeth without a word, she now has the chance at a great new job – working for him.  She needs the job, and Jack needs her, so the two try to overcome their past and see if they still have a future.
Not a lot to say about this one.  It’s a fun, fluffy, completely predictable little romance novel.  Works well for a beach read (which is the purpose it served for me!) but never really hits any real emotional highs or lows.  It kind of meanders about the middle.  Jack and Elizabeth aren’t terrifically sympathetic, but you like them just the same.  It’s a very white bread story – it needed something more interesting going on for me to recommend as a great little book (like I do with Nora Roberts).  It’s a fine way to while away an afternoon when you don’t want to think too much!
