What would you do if you discovered the men you were dating were fictional characters you'd created long ago? Thirty-five-year-old Catherine Schreiber has shelved love for good. Keeping her ailing bookstore afloat takes all her time, and she’s perfectly fine with that. So when several men ask her out in short order, she’s not sure what to do…especially since something about them seems eerily familiar. Caught between fantasy and reality, Cat must decide which—or whom—she wants more. Blending humor with unusual twists, including a magical manuscript, a computer scientist in shining armor, and even a Regency ball, A Man of Character tells a story not only of love, but also of the lengths we'll go for friendship, self-discovery, and second chances.

In an Oyster Shell – I was excited about the concept of this book. Characters that you make and interact with in real life…How fun! I feel like there were  things that could have been done better, but overall it’s a quick read and is interesting.

The Pearls –  As I mentioned in the intro, the concept of this book was super interesting to me. I have pondered doing an idea like it, so I was curious how this author dealt with the idea. I liked it. I thought it was fun. The fact of characters coming out of your stories and interacts with you… Is great! That they are all love interests (makes for confusion) even better.

My favorite part about this book is the sacrifice that Cat makes for her best friend. I don’t feel like life or fiction often capture well – the reality of sacrifice and friendship. Sometimes we do have to give up our friends for what is better for them. The love between these two characters was encouraging. We all needs friends like that.

The Sand – I felt like the middle of this book got muddled. The MC got confused with all her love interests, and it almost felt as if the author lost control of her story. There was just too much going on. Luckily that was resolved in the end.

I give this 3 pearls.

About Margaret Locke

Don’t tell my mom, but I started reading romance at the age of ten. I’d worked my way through all of the children’s books available in the local bookmobile, so I turned to the adult section, where I spied a book with a woman in a flowing green dress on the cover. The back said something about a pirate. I was hooked (and still wish I could remember the name of that fateful book!).

My delight in witty repartee between hero and heroine, in the age-old dance of attraction vs. resistance, in the emotional satisfaction of a cleverly achieved Happily Ever After followed me through high school, college, even grad school. But it wasn’t until I turned forty (what? I’m still fourteen on the inside!) that I finally made good on my teenage vow to write said novels, not merely consume them.

I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in Virginia with my fantastic husband, two fabulous kids, and two fat cats. You can usually find me in front of some sort of screen (electronic or window; I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m not an outdoors person).
