    One thought on “One Girl at a Time”

    1. Re One Girl at a Time - Roberta Leigh gives us the extended tourist HP travelogue in Thailand with this one. One of the most striking things was that many toilets in Thailand are actually little private rooms with holes in the ground. This one is full of interesting Thai tidbits like that.The book starts with the h being given a Thai holiday by her sister and brother in law as a thank you gesture for abandoning her fashion school finals to nurse her ailing sister. Unfortunately this surprise fam [...]

    2. Another story set in Thailand that ends up involving drug smuggling. Also, the hero wears wrap-around black sunglasses for three quarters of the book to "trick" the reader and the heroine into thinking he is Thai, when he actually is the English adopted son of a Thai family. That was another disappointment because HPlandia sure lacks diversity and I would have been thrilled with a hero who didn't fit the mold.

    3. 3 1/2 Stars ~ Tansy is a dress designer struggling to make a name for herself, but without the backing of a fashion house it's hard going.  When her designs earn her a lucrative contract for a silk mercantile in Thailand, she's ecstatic.  Arriving in Thailand, she's shocked to discover her new boss is a man she'd had words with over the quality of dresses being offered by the company, thinking the man had simply been a boutique manager.  Vin is quite taken by Tansy, her striking auburn hai [...]

    4. And another fifty cents thrown away! I think I need therapy to find out why I torture myself with these awful things.

    5. Roberta Leigh is a favourite author from way back. Her heroine's are mostly career women. Like Tansy, the heroine in this story.Tansy is rebuilding her fashion design business after family illness forced her to take time off. A visit to Thailand to recover from the strain brought her into contact with two men. An Australian "backpacker" and the manager of a store who objected to her dismissal of the shoddy goods for sale.Back in England, she is given the opportunity to work for an international [...]

    6. Again my Harlequin mood of the past three days continues. I can't resist, the drama is calling to me. Another one I greatly enjoyed. Two in a row I liked - woohoo! It's not as sensual as the last but I loved the story. Vin was an alluring, mysterious hero you had to like, and Tansy's workaholic personality made perfect sense. The ending dished out a whallop of a surprise too, I never saw that coming as the reason. The ending was sweet but I would have liked her to explain more about Roger. Maybe [...]

    7. Three stars for the great exotic setting, very vividly Thailand, lots of local color and fun designer/fashion facts. One star for Drama which fell short, the continuous misunderstandings between the two got tiresome. The story is awkward and the whole aviator shades thing was silly.

    8. The plot didn't work for me. (view spoiler)[Drug dealers using shoulder padding of designer clothes to transport opium was too crazy; the idea of the business owner whoring himself even though we find out he lied didn't allow me to want a relationship between them. (hide spoiler)]

    9. This book was just ok i gelt the character were a bit flat. The best part was it took place in Thailand the culture is interesting.

    10. Designer garment factory in Thailand moonlights as a drug dealing sweat shop. That's just. I mean. Why? Of all the plots this author could have chosen with Thailand as the setting, she went with the racist stereotype one?! Ugh!The misunderstanding between the H and h went on for too long, as did her fake engagement (she never does tell the H about that, btw). The sunglasses thing was stupid. I also hated the flower language used to describe the heroine. Stem-like waist, skin like a stamen - is s [...]
