Love Walked In – Marisa de los Santos

Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos
Genre: Adult Fiction
Form: Audio Book

Thirty-one-year-old Cornelia Brown adores classic romantic films. Anything starring Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant will do nicely, especially The Philadelphia Story.Unapologetically idealistic about love, Cornelia appears to catch the break of a lifetime when the dashing Martin Grace, her own personal Cary Grant, comes strolling into her life. But Cormelia’s life truly changes on snowy day when she looks up to find troubled 11-year-old Clare Hobbes standing before her.

A lovely story! Cornelia is a wonderful protagonist, she is a hopeless romantic. When Martin comes into her life – it’s as if the world comes alive. She notices everything – from sights to smells, not to mention every slight movement Martin makes. He seems just perfect on the outside…and even on the inside. But the more she gets to know him, the more she notices little things that are starting to bother her; like the way he doesn’t really listen to what she is saying, and the things he isn’t saying.

She is a little surprised (but not really) when Martin turns out to have a daughter. But the next few weeks has the potential to change Cornelia’s life. Clare is very troubled, very hurt and does not easily trust the people around her. With the help of one of her best friends Teo, Cornelia make it her responsibility to find out what has happened, and also to take care of Clare. It isn’t long before Cornelia is ready to drop her easy life as coffee house manager to become the mother that Clare so desperately needs.

Beautifully written. I loved the characters and the story line. It was heart-throbbingly enjoyable, despite it’s predictability. The only complaint I have about it was in audio version – I was constantly getting Cornelia and Clare’s narrators mixed up. Cornelia’s narrator sounded younger to me, making me want to fit the voice to Clare.
