    1. Classic KrentzA classic Krentz from the early 1990s, SWEET FORTUNE is the story of a hardheaded business man and a free spirited woman. THE STORY: Jessie Benedict is the quirky daughter of an obsessed business man who destroyed his marriages and his family because of his dedication to his business. She has had a string of jobs where she ends up getting herself fired. She now has a job as an assistant to a psychic. Her family wants her to marry her father's new business consultant and CEO Sam "Ha [...]


    2. Sam Hatchard is a bit annoying as the hero initially. He's so certain he and Jessie would do okay together. He ignores her valid reasons for doubting that. But as he grows through the story and you learn more about him, he's cool.Plus, Jessie has no problems standing up to him."Sweet Fortune" is a re-release of an older book and at times its datedness shows - but I love that! The book has charm and Jayne Ann Krentz's wonderful way of wrapping up all the threads so there's not just a happy ending [...]


    3. One of my comfort reads, from JAK's very enjoyable "Seattle in the '90s" period. Smart, goofy heroine; smart, cranky hero; family hijinks. Looking back, I think these set the bar for what I expect in a romance novel. (Saying that, I will admit that I view the hero's more dictatorial qualities through nostalgia goggles.)



    4. In the 90's Krentz wrote a series of romance novels with quirky young heroines who became involved with tough, no-nonsense business men. Of course romance followed, along with some suspense and mystery. Usually the women had interesting jobs and all these stories are set in Washington state. I discovered them as they were being published, and they were the books that convinced me I could enjoy contemporary romance. Somehow I missed this book, first published in '91, so I was happy to stumble upo [...]


    5. Well doneOther than the fact that I really could not like Jessie, this was a well written novel. One of those "it ain't over till it's over" type of books. I enjoyed the story and most of the characters rang truel were well defined and the author never left you hanging as to whose point of view you were reading. Once or twice I feared Jessie was about to do something idiotic but fortunately she didn't. TSTL characters ruin novels and Jayne barely keeps her characters out of that realm. Good job. [...]


    6. Another excellent read.I love the characters, the snappy dialogue, the twists and turns of the plot development, and most of all the slightly wacky humor sprinkled through the whole book.


    7. MSweet FortuneI laughed a lot and I loved this book a lot, it was a great read and I enjoyed every minute I spent on this book.


    8. AwesomeI really enjoyed this book. It has been awhile since I have read this book. I am enjoying rereading the jayne Ann krentz books.



    9. Out of all the Krentz books I've read over the years, this is the first one to fully grab me on all levels. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was a truly exceptional book, but it was thoroughly engaging. I was wary to read it, as I've found most of Krentz' books to just be lacking some but Sweet Fortune worked on all levels for me.The romance was probably the best of any of Krentz I've read so far. I enjoyed Jessie and Hatch, they had great chemistry and depth. That's something I've sometimes fo [...]


    10. Another fine book by Jayne Ann Krentz (read it for a second time).Let me start by saying that this book, like a lot of others by the same author has some crazy family dynamics involved. For a reader like me this is something that puts the book in my - 'to be read radar'.The H and h are both involved in a somewhat non typical relationship where the guy is after her and trying to convince her to be with him for all the wrong the reasons (the funny part being that he knew what the right reasons wer [...]

He moves in without her say so. Just decides he's going t [...]


    12. The characters in this book are great and so is Ms. Krentz's humorous dialogue. The book rolls up and down like a good roller coaster ride as Jesse Benedict tries to manuever her way through Sam Hatchard's manipulations. He wants marriage, and she does not, an unusal twist in itself. Ms. Krentz carries the corporate strategy theme all through the book, another of her trademarks, whether the theme is art, glass, mirrors, or something else. As usual there are a host of other wonderful characters t [...]


    13. One for nostalgia buffs ( as long as your chosen era was the very early 1990s). The plot was decidedly pre-mobile phone and internet, and a touch patriarchal to the point where it wasn't entirely possible to suspend judgement and disbelief. And it was a reminder, if one was needed, that foreplay seemingly wasn't invented until the 21st century :-) And still I liked it. Go figure.


    14. Jessie, the businessman's daughter who can't keep a job, and Sam Hatchard, the corporate shark with a thin layer of insecurity, are matched in this tale of psychic investigation, family maneuvering and the deep need for love, loyalty, family & home.


    15. Slow in parts, but a great "relaxation" read!Jayne's fans will enjoy this book! I think that it meets all needs for the reader that wants to relax with a good story that is well written.


    16. "we are here to officially announce our engagement. I thank all of you for being here to celebrate this momentous event with us. I know it isn't easy for some among you to accept this situation, but who the hell cares? This is the way it's going to be."


    17. AwesomeI am a friend of Debbie. Wow, really really really great read. Awesome book Jayne ann Krentz. I give it 4 stars. its good for those who like romance with a some mystery mixed in.


    18. Great Book!Love this author, great character development and dialogue. Excellent underlying romantic theme, well done with just the right tension in the male/female interaction and relationship.




    19. I'm a sucker for Krentz and I really like her Seattle books. Manly men, spacy women, crazy families. Yeah, formula all the way. I love them though.




    20. I read this book when it first came out in 1991 and the hero always stuck with me, someone I would compare other men to. Reading it again tonight and it feels like the choice I didn't make.


    21. What funReally enjoyed the characters, plot and banter. Always enjoy Jane Ann Krentz's books. Would recommend to all adult readers. Read it.
