I really liked this book. There was no high drama, no big misunderstandings, just slow discovery of each others characters and personalities. Originally, the hero believes all beautiful women to be as condescending and scornful like his mother and the heroine over the course over their acquaintance believes herself to be an obligation the hero took on for his friend, who is her brother-in-law. But neither dwelled on it. Their misunderstandings were minor and talked about and solved.
