Review of Rose by Kirsten Osborne

Read for: Mount TBR and Reading Across the States
Synopsis: "Rose is the first book in a highly anticipated new series Suitors of Seattle, following the adventures of eight Western daughters ready to benefit from the matchmaking skills of her new Aunt Harriett, whom readers will recognize from the best selling Brides of Beckham series.

Pampered socialite Rose is used to men falling at her feet. But her match with handsome Dr. Shawn Henry leaves her feeling less than adored. Has Rose fallen in love with a man who can’t love her back?"

My Review: This was a book you kind of needed to read after the author's previous series. The story jumped right in and I wasn't able to get to know the characters too well. It was a very short read and would be great for an afternoon lazing around in the sun. There weren't any great shockers or twists in the story, just the usual storyline of a stupid misunderstanding that gets blown out of proportion and is quickly resolved at the end. Towards the end of the book I did start to get to know a couple of the sub-characters and was a little intrigued by them. This book felt more like a prequel to a series than the first book.
My Rating: This was an enjoyable read but nothing remarkable or something I could connect with but it was nice to have a quick and light read. I give it a rating of Three Paws.


  1. Sometimes these are the perfect kinds of reads.
