This is one of those great, easy, relaxed reads that is just perfect for an afternoon out in the sunlight. The title kind of hints at that. But after reading it, I can attest that it is most definitely a perfect read for the beach. A nice departure from the more intense reads I do tend to fill my shelves with.

I was kind of expecting a tragedy or many things to go hilariously wrong in this story. After all, the name of it is Murphy’s Law. Yet, that’s not what I found. This was, undoubtedly kind of humorous and very cute. But mostly it was a story in which pretty much everything went right. After all, a woman quits her job and runs away to escape the man that she’s in love with. And in doing so, managed to find her happily ever after.

Most romances you meet is about that moment that lovers meet and / or figure out that they’re meant for each other. Which makes sense, because that’s kind of the point of a romance. This story takes a bit of a departure from that. It’s about that moment afterwards, when things have completely fallen apart. And how things can be put back on track. When it’s not about that instant attraction, but making your crap and bullshit work with one another’s.

Every MaryJanice Davidson story I’ve read is completely off-kilter different from what I’d expected and just downright funny. This novella was no different. My Thief had me out and out laughing, smiling and just grinning as the heroine, who is so different to what you’d expect, hooked up with a hunky accountant. Talk about turning stereotypes on their head.

One of the hardest things about being a driven, independent and intelligent woman is that it’s something which doesn’t always go over too well with the people you’re surrounded with. The fact that this novella features a woman whose main hang-up is exactly that was seriously enjoyable. And way, way, way too relatable.

A secret weekend away with the boyfriend… who has a hidden agenda. It kind of sounds perfect, except for the fact that the woman in this story doesn’t really want to be tied down and has major issues. It made me think of a few people that I know. This idea that love makes you weak. Alright, it kind of does, because you’re putting your trust in another person and that shit is scary. But, honestly, it makes a great tale – learning to trust and what it actually takes to put that much trust in one person.

This was an incredibly cute and easy novella. A good read at the end of a long day and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. It started out a little tedious… but then it gained traction. And was actually quite cute. Not the kind of story that will get your pulse racing, but one that makes you smile that happy, secret little smile.
