Book Review: Prejudice Meets Pride by Rachael Anderson
Author: Rachael Anderson
Enjoyment Rating: ***
Source: Digital copy
Content Alert: A clean romance
Emma is accustomed to fending for herself. She managed to graduate from RISD, one of the country's best art schools, with little help from anyone. Then, she landed her dream job. But she has never had to take care of anyone else either. When her brother needs her to take his girls so he can get his life together, she moves them across the country to Colorado Springs (where a dead great-aunt left a house to her), Emma has to adjust to a lot, and self-sufficiency has quite a big learning curve. When the cute dentistnext door wants to help her by buying her groceries, mowing her lawn and offering her a job, every offer hurts Emma's pride.
Prejudice Meets Pride is a textbook romance novel. There's nothing offensive about it, and nothing really makes it stand out either. Emma and Kevin (the dentist) are just flawed enough to make them seem endearing, and they both have to grow and stretch a bit to find love. The story is predictable and ends happily, and readers who want to escape without being challenged too much would probably find it a satisfying read.
