Book Review - An Improbable Pairing by Gary Dickson

Scott Stoddard is an American graduate student traveling to Switzerland. On board a ship, his path crosses with Countess de Rovere, a recent French divorcee. Scott is smitten by her charm and looks. The pair begins a simple flirtation and soon evolves into a serious love affair. As their love affair progress, they face criticism because they have so many differences.

The premise of the novel seemed interesting as it is about a younger man courting an older woman. However, I felt like this novel fell flat. The author spent more time discussing the food, clothes, and the atmosphere than the story. I was almost 90% through the book before I decided it wasn't worth reading anymore. There was almost no plot and the characters were bland. If you like cozy reads that go more into haute couture than story, then this is the book for you.
