Every once in a while I read a book that just melts my heart, puts a cheery grin on my face, and happy tears in my eyes. That is exactly what happened when I read Wrong Number, Right Woman by Jae. I’ve never read a novel of Jae’s that I didn’t like, but I just fell head-over-heels in love with this one. This is one of those feel-good stories that you want to read over and over again, especially when you are having a bad day, a bad week, or in the case of most of us, a bad year.
Jae’s characters, especially her main characters are always well-developed. Denny and Eliza are perfect examples of this. They are very realistic and human, with flaws and quirks like all of us. They are also absolutely adorable and loveable. The setting of the story takes place in the same world as several of her other books including the Portland Police Bureau Series as well as her novel Under a falling Star. In fact, Dee and Austen, the main characters from Under a Falling Star are secondary characters in this novel. I’ve always liked how Jae connects her books this way. Don’t worry if you haven’t read these other books yet. This is definitely a stand-alone novel, just in the same world.
The story itself is amazing. The way Jae has these two women meet and slowly get to know each other is wonderful. She weaves a tale that grabs you on the first page and pulls you by the heart strings to the very last page of the epilogue. Jae is the queen of slow-burn romance, and this book shows you why.
Wrong Number, Right Woman has my highest recommendation and is worth every star I can give it. If you need a book to escape from a crappy day (or year), then grab this novel and enjoy!
