Vague Directions (book review)
About the book:
PRETEND PRINCESS. REAL HERO. After nearly getting lost on her way to her first medieval reenactment, Heather’s evening only gets crazier from there. Sparks fly between her and the handsome and chivalrous Roland, who’s not just a pretend knight in shining armor but an undercover army ranger on a dangerous mission. When he rescues Heather from a real—if fuzzy—monster attack, the pair is forced to spend the night in his safe house. And while Heather may no longer be in danger, her heart most definitely is.
A really quick fun read (47 pages?). Definitely a great one to pull out while one the beach or by the pool.
I loved Heather. It was great that even though the festival wasn't really her thing... she let her friend talk her into trying it out to get out of her post-relationship rut. I also loved how easygoing she was. Knowing her friend regularly gave her "vague directions", she drove on her own (in full costume) out into the middle of some country highway field. Even getting lost... she kept her cool. She was just a really confident woman. It made her easy to like. Her confidence didn't guarantee she would always be smart in her actions though (she had a couple of really dumb moments)... which was good since it gave reason for Roland to step in to be her knight in shining armor.
The paranormal twist at the end came a little out of left field. But, I always knew there was something more to renaissance/medieval re-enactment type festivals than the average person knew about! :)
