Imagine A highly enjoyable, funny, and romantic read It was rather long, but I zipped right through it because I just got completely lost in it This is not normally the type of romance I would go for, but it worked for me in this case Margaret Huntington Smith, a lawyer and feminist in 1896 San Francisco goes on a vacation to the South Seas When her ship is wrecked, she and three orphans are

Francisco goes on a vacation to the South Seas When her ship is wrecked, she and three orphans are rescued by escaped convict Hank Wyatt Soon, the five of them, along with a goat, find themselves stranded on a beautiful island paradise Hank starts out as very chauvinistic, which make for some truly hilarious conversations between him and Margaret who he has dubbed Smitty because he knows it bugs her As the troop deals with weather, building shelters, finding food, and the crazy emotional highs and lows, they begin to forge a very beautiful family like relationship And soon the vitriol between Smitty and Hank turns into grudging respect, which grows into honest admiration, and then into passionate love Oh, and I must also mention that there is a Genie involved in this story yes, a real, honest to goodness genie Now one might say that makes the story too silly but it actually made it even better Obviously, you ve got to suspend reality a bit for that one It added a bit of whimsy and humor to the story, and offsets some of the serious topics dealt with by the central characters The sexual tension between Smitty and Hank was simply delicious It was one of those books where they keep taking slow and painful steps towards each other throughout the story so that when they FINALLY give in to each other the reader is at the edge of her seat, reading furiously This was a freebie on Kindle a while back, and I m glad I picked it up and read it Would definitely recommend A completely hilarious take on the Robinson Crusoe storyline with a pinch of romance and twists for some of the commonplace elements The author grabbed my attention first by having the main characters be a female lawyer and an escaped convict, who saves her and three orphaned children and their nanny goat,

hilarious take on the Robinson Crusoe storyline with a pinch of romance and twists for some of the commonplace elements The author grabbed my attention first by having the main characters be a female lawyer and an escaped convict, who saves her and three orphaned children and their nanny goat, named Rebuttal from a shipwreck somewhere in the middle of the South Seas Their vicissitudes on the small island they end up in is sprinkled with humour that comes mostly from the woman s inability to do the basic housekeeping chores because of her wealthy background that didn t prepare her for that, the children s resourceful wanderings over the island, and the funny banter, plus a sprinkle of the magical.The genie that appears is the detail I consider the most unnecessary, because it doesn t do much for the plot and shoves this otherwise purely historical novel into magical genres Though I do appreciate that the author didn t go the Deus ex Machina route by having the genie take them out of the island immediately, but that at the same time also made its inclusion the odder and least necessary The language also sounds modern to my ears, which had me often forgetting this isn t a modern setting On the whole, however, the hilarity of this ludicrously mismatched American Family Robinson is a great read for the enjoyment After Years In Prison For A Murder He Never Committed, Escaped Convict Hank Wyatt Knew How To Survive But He Didn T Know If He Could Last An Hour Marooned On A Deserted Tropical Island With A Beautiful Blonde And Three Orphaned Children Now, Looking Out For Number One Doesn T Seem To Be Enough San Francisco Attorney Maggie Smith Felt Like Having A Good Cry Thoroughly Modern, Wealthy, And Bright, She S Suddenly Been Cast In The Role Of Mother And Forced To Battle Wits And Hearts With The Most Arrogant Man She S Ever Met Fate Has Thrown This Makeshift Family Robinson Together And Kismet Tossed In A Touch Of Magic The Chance For A Love Powerful Than They Could Ever Imagine Only A Wish Away I really liked this survival romance where the hero heroine and three orphans are shipwrecked and along the way learn of love, acceptance and family The hero is a hard man who has had a hard life The heroine has devoted her life to being good at her job Then, there are three siblings hurting at the loss of their parents and an uncertain future Seeing all of them struggle and grow was great The book left me with a smile I will definitely check outby this author.

three wishes who needs to find a true believer to fulfill his destiny.The verbal sparring between this odd couple is hilarious, Muddy, the Genie, adds a touch of magic and humor to the story also makes a convenient baby sitter , the kids are darling and the scenes where Hank warms up to them are really touching It was so much fun to see Hank s attitude about women and children change after being stuck with them day in and day out with no escape The last few chapters had me teary eyed I recommend this one for anyone looking for a feel good romance with a happy ending and lots of sexual tension This book is the ultimate fantasy I completed book two days ago but I didn t want to write a review before I decided how I will score it According to my liking, it is 3 stars It is that way because I have been pricky recently and it s really all about me, not the book kind of thing.On the other hand, it was a good book with an intriguing plot and appropriate story development It fits perfectly for a Christmas times, although most of the events happened on a tropic island.I usually like children involved stories and this one i I completed book two days ago but I didn t want to

like children involved stories and this one is not an exception It is nice to see that children end up with a family life, particularly those in need.However, it includes a genie, it just added some enjoyment and some minor miracles to story It was not based on paranormal events In my opinion, it was a good point.Overall, it was a nice reading with full of hopeful emotions and happy endings 3 22

hence the PNR tag But despite the rescue their troubles aren t over yet.An enjoyable story with the perfect ending The HEA came none too easily Some trials to overcome Some tough choices to make Decent dialogue Decent setting Decent writing Some chuckles here and there Quite steamy sex, but not until the relationship is solid I quickly grew to love Hank and was rooting for him all the way His life thus far has been tough The kids were well drawn I liked Maggie, the attorney, too Strong, smart, and spunky The goat Meh She should stop ramming into Hank I don t care for slapstick humor and give the poor baby some milk.Content explicit sex two scenes , swearing, profanity, minimal violence If you enjoy a touch of whimsy, some silliness, an adventure and a genie, welcome to IMAGINE This is Jill Barnett s take on the shipwrecked and deserted island themes and is a frolic feel good fantasy with a dollop of romance The setting is somewhere in the Pacific It is 1896 and the end of Victorian times, when women were still innocent and yet starting to enter man dominated professions A time when they were thrown a learning curve in many respects The book is an undertaking into a hodge If you enjoy a touch of whimsy, some silliness, an adventure and a genie, welcome to IMAGINE This is Jill Barnett s take on the shipwrecked and deserted island themes and is a frolic feel good fantasy with a dollop of romance The setting is somewhere in the Pacific It is 1896 and the end of Victorian times, when women were still innocent and yet starting to enter man dominated professions A time when they were thrown a learning curve in many respects The book is an undertaking into a hodge podge of genres and I loved it.Margaret Huntington Smith, Smitty , is both an accomplished attorney and a sweetheart who manages to find good in others She was raised by a loving father and several doting uncles to develop a mind of her own, in a good way She s never been married, doesn t cook and has no idea what to do with children She is patient to a fault.Hank Wyatt is best described as an anti hero An escaped convict with impatience and a foul mouth, he initially poses as a priest when he first meets Margaret He is on the run and claims his innocence He also is obnoxious and crude but I loved his character Here is a man who is the epitome of annoyance Set in his ways, he views women and children the same as prison There is a purpose for each of these but not in his life IMAGINE, in some ways, reminded me of the movie FATHER GOOSE with Cary Grant and Leslie Caron.The children in this story have lost their parents and are on their way to an orphanage Lydia, the oldest, is quiet and serious Her best friend is a goat Theodore, at five, takes everything at face value He follows Hank like glue on paper The youngest is Annabelle, a little one If you have ever been around a toddler you know this young child can be a handful.Lastly, there is Muddy, the genie I told you this story had elements of a fantasy Mix all of these characters and you have a funny adventure with a bite of romance Quirky yet delicious, this book is a keeper Read the story for its oddball humor Read it for the unforeseen developments between the characters Read it for the off the wall romance but just read it You will be glad you did
