Very exciting story, good conflict. Smart, independent protagonist. Kleypas missed an opportunity to really explore how Ethan's Irish heritage conflicts with his role as a law enforcement agent. Didn't like how Kleypas wrote Garrett who only thinks she doesn't want kids but immediately changes her mind when the right guy comes along.

Hello Stranger - Kleypas

4 stars

This is my favorite of this series. The admirable, independent, Dr. Garrett Gibson combines her unlikely professional life with romance. The mysterious and seductive Ethan Ransom has the unlikely ability to appreciate her intelligence as well as her sex appeal. I enjoyed the connection to the Ravenels, the life saving emergency surgery, and the triumph of good over evil. ( )

There's a reason we adore authors like [a:KJ Charles|18773218|KJ Charles|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png], [a:Courtney Milan|2906892|Courtney Milan|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1245255772p2/2906892.jpg], and [a:Cecilia Grant|4996526|Cecilia Grant|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1311173143p2/4996526.jpg].

("Why is she starting off a Lisa Kleypas review with this," you're asking. I'll be telling you)

At least I know why I love them. Aside from creating characters that speak to me, they deftly create characters that exist within their times. By this I mean, of course, the woman who sees no other way around but faking a pregnancy to protect herself and others (the overly practical Martha). The men who have to hide their attraction for the same sex for fear of losing everything and more. It's always always there-that danger--and if they are radicals, that's dangerous too. The scientist so genius that even her dearest friends don't know who she really is. The newspaper editor and suffragette whose life is regularly threatened and safety is never guaranteed.

I think Lisa Kleypas is capable of making heroines, while perhaps not remarkable like Milan's heroines or Charles's heroes--maybe a little odd--exist within the context of their time. I will point to Wallflowers, as I did in a previous discussion. I didn't love all of them, but they all made sense.

Garrett doesn't. The first female physician and she's not threatened. It's a complete cop-out. Every man that crosses her path will eventually be convinced if he's not a criminal. They want to rape her b/c she's a pretty piece. She did do a lot of doctoring. And this would've made sense in a Tessa Dare novel, but this heroine was so ahead of her time without suffering any of the side effects, other than gentle mockery and doubt from time to time--it was almost as if she were a woman physician today and not the only one in her country at the time.

I'll set this aside. I think in light of this, the choices were odd. Her life didn't create the danger, Ethan's did. I think it could've been interesting, but her life and bravery were somewhat diminished in the safe harbor of Winterborne's. I liked that she seemed a fairly consistent character...but she didn't make me feel, and a woman out of her time, out of her 'place' should make me ache. This heroine-centric reader just can't rate this over a 2.75 as a result.

And wouldn't you know, she didn't even consider sex until she ran across him again. Yes, he was dark and dangerous. And smooth talking, some great lines. But he felt so oddly one-dimensional. It could've been so great, but I literally forgot that I had not finished it when woke up this morning. *Gives you a hard stare* I feel like I am talking myself into a '2' given that but some of those lines.

West made the entire ending, which just felt silly. And I really miss a layered slow developing romance...

I think I need to go reread A Devil in Winter. I deserve it. ( )

I'm thrilled to be reading the next installment of The Ravenels! Who is the new historical romance series by the amazing Lisa Kleypas, in fact, I just "might" have made a whole Instagram story of me getting it out of the package.... Yep! Totally fangirling.

In Hello Stranger we finally get to find out where Ethan Ransom fits in with the Ravenels, and why he seems to avoid them as much as he can. But we also get to spend more time with Dr. Garrett Gibson! Not only as the only women physician in England, but we get to see her awareness of Ethan!

But no true love runs smoothly, especially when an assassin is out to get Ethan, and those he thought were allies, were the ones plotting his death! But then push come to shove, will Garrett be able to save him?

I have never made it a secret that I absolutely love Lisa Kleypas, her writing is what made me fall in love with Historical Romance in the first place, and for me, Hello Stranger gives me that same excited vibe. I really enjoyed the characters, and plot, the only draw back for me was the cover, and while I'm not a big fan of it, the actual story is marvelous! So in this for instance, DO NOT judge a book by its cover.

I give Hello Stranger 5 stars! ( )

The 4th volume in the Ravenel series focuses on Dr. Garrett Gibson who works for Rhys Winterbourne. Ethan Ransom, the illegitimate son of Edmund Ravenel, finds himself drawn to Gibson's beauty and strength; however, his role as a domestic spy makes him a danger to himself and anyone close to him, so he tries to keep his distance. Yet, neither can deny their connection.
