This Book Grew On Me As It Went On
IT HAPPENED ONE MIDNIGHT is the eighth book in the Pennyroyal Green series. It is the story of Jonathan Redmond, the youngest son of the Redmond family. Jonathan meets Thomasina de Ballestros one night while she is skulking outside a dude’s window. The two end up as friends as Tommy ends up involving Jonathan in various schemes. Jonathan has been given an ultimatum by his father: marry an appropriate woman by the end if the year. Of course, Jonathan begins to have non-friend feelings for Tommy, who is definitely not appropriate.
I loved the development of the relationship in this book. Tommy and Jonathan begin to discover in each other a purpose in life. The two become entwined in Tommy’s schemes and Jonathan’s investments. I could feel how these two grew and changed throughout the book. I also very much liked how they both moved together to solve the problem of them seemingly not being able to be together. Jonathan is a great hero and I really felt his love for his family in this book. This book also resolves some of the lingering problems from the other books in the series (still waiting for Lyon and Olivia).
