Without the erotic element inside it not even an intimate scene A Case of Serendipity is one interesting love story any reader should read. Secondly, I adore Ruth's temperament and how Henry slow but steady is opening his heart for her. The author not only delivers a welcome dose of humour using Ruth's breezy attitude but blends beautifully the secondary characters who have important roles into the story as well. What I enjoy most about them are the dialogues. Lastly, I still have this feeling of been a part of the Ruth's and Henry's story than just a simple viewer.
If only the storyline didn't have these unnecessary details once in a while, it could have been a great read. Until next time, enjoy your free time reading great books with the most unforgettable stories. Vivi Follow me on my blog instagram twitter facebook Mar 16, Jules rated it really liked it.
A Case of Serendipity is a lovely contemporary romance. Farnham has set the plot pace to realistic. There is no insta-love where the main characters proclaim their undying love after knowing each other a few days. This allows readers to really get to know both characters. The story premise is cute and realistic. She is recovering from several hardships, and yet A Case of Serendipity is a lovely contemporary romance.
She is recovering from several hardships, and yet, she retains a very positive attitude. I loved the simplicity of her life. She is not materialistic.

She is low maintenance—spends more time being out in the world rather than primping. Henry is an uptight, overachieving lawyer, but a very nice, ethical guy. His family is pretty relaxed compared to him. Constance is beautiful on the outside, but not so much on the inside. Her self-absorption and vindictiveness make her dislikeable.
Both of these characters are likable, but they are better together since they bring out the best in one another in an easy, comfortable way. There is little angst in this lighthearted read. Farnham has written a delightful, clean, mature romance. Carefree Ruth and Uptight Henry come together in an unusual way, and their friends-to-lovers story makes for a charming, feel good read.

Big Hit Auditions
It was just too darn cute and adorable. Both Ruth and Henry's characters were so relatable and honestly I was rooting for these two. Couldn't decide who I liked better between these two, the jovial Ruth or the uptight Henry. The author has beautifully sketched the characters and narrated the story and kept the flow of the story so grasping that my fingers keeping turning the page until I was done with the story.

A super fun, light romance, A Case Of Serendipity is a story that is quick to get drawn into and easy reading. I would have loved to see more focus on their growing love for one another. The love part seemed a little rushed to me by the end. This story is a slow burning, light hearted romance. I loved the characters, I thought they were great. Ruth is quirky and out 3.
Ruth is quirky and outgoing while Henry is straight laced. I really liked how they brought out the best in each other. The secondary characters were also great. I also learned a thing or two about legal stuff. J Farnham has written. What a fun and quick read! I thoroughly enjoyed this book: the characters are so relatable and real people, and the details of Milwaukee brought me home as well as painted such a clear picture. Another aspect that I love about this book is that it is a clean read. It is easy to write and read a book that has prolific profanity and explicit sexual What a fun and quick read!
It is easy to write and read a book that has prolific profanity and explicit sexual descriptions. Thank you KJ Farnham for the fun story, and I look forward to your future work. Mar 22, Marjorie rated it liked it. More of a 3. Somehow I found that I just could not connect with the characters in this book at all. There is nothing intrinsically wrong with the writing or the characterisation, I think they were just too far away from the people that I know and so had no reference point for their motivations and behaviours.

Beyond Ruth's love of jigsaw puzzles and Henry's workaholism their lifestyles are polar opposites to mine, so much so that I did find myself a little bit dare I say it, I dare, I dare bored with the book from time to time. The writing itself is well crafted and flows well. However, the constant jerking back to legal ish emails and then chatty texts did break the flow and spoilt the read a little bit for me.

For some reason the constant full format email showing Henry's position and contact details at the law firm really irritated me and felt like page filler to bulk the page length out. The text messages were far less intrusive and a good way of expressing dialogue in a way that is becoming more familiar to us than actual face to face conversation.
The insights in to each character's past and their relationships with their families was interesting and did flesh the characters out in a not too overt fashion. You very definitely get the sense these are two grown-ups who have a handle on the whole adulting thing but are trying to still keep some of that childlike wonder at the world to milk the most out of every drop of life. Although set in Milwaukee it did feel very much like it could have been Anywheresville, USA with the chain coffee shops, Keurigs and farmer's markets and there was little in the way of local colour to really differentiate this place from any other.
Mentioning the Keurig reminds that "things" seem to be a touch important with the odd little bit of brand-dropping here and there, not enough to really infuriate me but just enough to make me tut over the first 2 or 3 chapters but it soon settles down to barely there levels. I suppose the brands do give you an idea of the stage of life the characters are at and their relative incomes, somehow it irks me - bit like reality TV shows irk me. It certainly isn't a new device and it is highly prevalent in Victorian Literature with servants and carriages replacing the brand names but they were times much more delineated by class than our own.
The plot itself is quite a sweet and slow romance and although there are no sex scenes we know full and well that Henry and Ruth have "done the dirty deed" because both refer to it. Fortunately the author has steered away from sex scenes - this is good for me as I find them ubiquitously cringy as my husband said "if someone were to write a passage about swimming a few lengths of their local swimming pool it would be almost unbearable to read if you had experience of swimming; all that splashing and thrusting and pulling through the flat, chemical smelling surface.
It's just the same with sex". The focus of the book is more about them each learning to trust another person with their heart and believing that they will be accepted even if you can't carry a tune in a bucket or have two left feet. The unfolding relationship with Ruth and Henry is wonderfully tender and sweet without slipping over in to nausea inducing levels of saccharine, with their attraction to each other being more about personalities than looks although they do find each other very attractive.
On the whole I did enjoy this book, I think I was just a little disappointed that it didn't grip me as much as "Don't Call Me Kit Kat" and may have been unnecessarily harsh in my reviewing of it. If you do enjoy a good romance that doesn't rely on salacious passages to sell itself then this is a good book for you.
I have to be honest and say that if you are looking for a light read for by the pool this summer then you won't go far wrong with this one. Intrigued by a person you have never personally met, only through an e-mail conversation and not even about personal things?
A Case of Serendipity tells the story of Ruth and Henry, who meet thanks to an overly-active spamming coffeehouse. That certain level of intimacy.
The feeling of being with someone who makes my insides quiver and knowing that I make their inside Intrigued by a person you have never personally met, only through an e-mail conversation and not even about personal things? The feeling of being with someone who makes my insides quiver and knowing that I make their insides feel the same way. Ruth is getting her life back in order after her divorce and is figuring out what she wants and who she wants to be.
Why am I thinking these things about her? Ruth and Henry are both realistic people, with hopes and dreams for something more.
