have been on a minor Lucy Gordon binge lately I enjoy her writing as well as her characters And this book is no different It has one of my favorite tropes blindness It is loosely based on the idiom beauty is as beauty does or maybe beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder or not The h is a beautiful woman working in a cosmetics company as a PR person and is good looking enough to be considered a model herself as the photog in the opening scene tells us She is supposedly vain and uses her looks smile to get her way often But, really, I found her to be a practical and enterprising working woman rather than a conceited femme fatale The same day she rams her car in to the blind H and his guide dog leaving the dog hospitalized and her, horrified and repentant The H lashes out at her saying he can tell from her voice that she is one of those outwardly beautiful but shallow women who can only take etc that is one helluva ESP he has and refuses all her offers of help.Anyways the H is the part of this very exclusive marketing firm the h s company has hired and so their paths cross again He has a very protective 10 yrs old daughter who brings him to the office now as Jenny the dog is physically and also psychologically traumatised, and is unable to guide As things work out, the daughter has to go on a camp but feels too responsible for her dad to leave him all alone The h offers to help and ends up living with him at his home for few weeks And so the story and their relationship unfolds.It is actually a finding oneself kind of tale with the h realizing that outer beauty is not all there is to a person But as I said I didn t find her too shallow to begin with The H, on the other hand needed to change and mellowthan anyone else Since the accident that left him blind and wife less as she played the devoted wife for a while before running off , he became very angry and directionless Maybe his anger helped him in the beginning as he worked hard to overcome the obstacle and become successful and even indispensable at his work but it has still left him very dissatisfied and embittered So it is ironical that the woman he considered too shallow is responsible for bringing love and laughter back into his life This was a great story about finding beauty beneath the surface Delia is a beautiful woman but she has come to rely on her looks to help her get ahead When she drives too fast around a curve and hits Craig s seeing eye dog, she feels terrible Craig is rightfully angry and gives her some things to think about They meet again through their jobs and a friendship and romance develop.I really enjoyed this story, tropes and all It felt a bit soap opera ish with all the drama but it was good fun t This was a great story about finding beauty beneath the

her Dad to go to summer camp, as she s afraid her father will go into one of his dark moods This makes Delia feel evenguilty, so she offers to fill in herself by moving in for a few weeks Craig isn t thrilled with this but it s the only way his daughter will leave him Craig has had to fight hard for his success in the business world, and he still has a tremendous chip on his shoulder, hating to accept help from anyone, esp Delia Each bitter retort from him only reinforces to Delia that she is a shell of a person with nothing else to offer except her beauty And to a sightless Craig Locksley her beauty is useless.Another emotional story from Ms Gordon Though we aren t given Craig s point of view, Ms Gordon through other characters lets us see the tortured man inside Watching him conduct business, Delia discovers that Craig used his blindness to his advantage much as she uses her looks in her work This allows her to look into herself and slowly she becomes aware that she is muchthan her beauty This is a wonderful story that I read in one sitting
