Utterly Charmed

"Alexander Murray spent his lifetime dissecting bodies, trephining skulls, and seeing gray matter splattered across the decks of warships. He knew one could not exist without a brain. Nonetheless, Miss Daphne Farnham appeared to be the living, breathing example of a brainless existence."

Introductory paragraph, Castaway Dreams by Darlene Marshall

I'm at 68% with this book, and I am in love! It is utterly charming, has wonderful characters, a lovely story, and is beautifully written. And I cannot wait to find out what happens at the end.

Bravo, Ms. Marshall!

Review coming soon.....

Wishing I were castaway with Dr. Murray and his white whiskers,

Funny coincidence, I'm currently reading the book before this, Sea Change, Dr. Murray has a brief part in it as well.

Penelope said...

Hi Julie! I liked that one, too. This one is a bit different...has a more light-hearted, humorous feel to it. I just finished it!!!! SOOOOOOO great! A perfect happy ending. I'm sitting here with a goofy grin on my face. I love romance!
