Luke Schumaker designs computer games, working from his home. Every day he walks his dog in the woods nearby, never suspecting that someone who is completely smitten is watching.
The watcher is Alex Shaw, and he too works from home, designing logic and crossword puzzles. Alex’s options are limited: he’s too shy to approach Luke and his wheelchair won’t let him follow into the woods. His solution? Secret messages for Luke in the crosswords he writes for the local paper.
When Luke decodes them, romance begins, but then they face greater puzzles, like Alex’s interfering sister and what commitment to a man in a wheelchair really takes. And, most puzzling of all, how do you know if love is real?
I could tell right away that Puzzle Me This was a re-release of an older work by Eli Easton. Eli Easton is one of my favorite authors and she has written some amazing stories, and though Puzzle Me This was sweet, it wasn't quite up to the caliber of her later work.
I'll always read a romance with a more atypical MC, and the fact that one of the MCs is in a wheelchair certainly caught my attention. I liked how there were a number of emotional and logistical things that were addressed about the MC being in a wheelchair, though I prefer how the author really explored it further in "The Mating of Michael," a personal favorite of mine.
