I read this book many years ago and it stuck in my head. I am so glad that I was able to find it again, love this book, love the characters, although it does get a little soppy at the end. I think that the build up of the story is good.

Many of us who discovered Barbara Delinsky after she made the jump from romance to fiction/women's fiction are enjoying MIRA's re-issues of her earlier series romances. I know I'm one of them, and though I did have a couple of problems with Twelve Across, I enjoyed it well enough to recommend. If you are a fan of Cabin/Road romances, this one should suitly nicely. If you enjoy romances with less-than-gorgeous heroines, this one is a great one, and here's why. The hero is drop-dead handsome and when he first meets the heroine, he doesn't see much, but as they fall in love, she becomes more beautiful to him. What could be more romantic than that?
Another point to recommend this book is that, even though there is a Big Secret, it's resolved easily enough. However, what is behind the big secret, and how it affects the lifestyle of the hero goes on a bit too long. The book becomes slightly sappy by the end, but because of its strengths, this one is still a recommended read.

One of my favorites and emdividually different from any I have read. Irecomend it because it's romance,true love and about having courage.

The heroine creates crossword puzzles for a living, hence the title "Twelve Across." The title concept also appropriately predicts the manner in which the two main characters lives cross and become intertwined in this great book! Seeking solitude and peace after a rough patch, she thinks she will find it at a friend's cabin. The hero is a recluse with a famous past, but with her love and understanding, is able to take his place in society once again. While the story lines and characters are completely different, "Twelve Across" is in the same caliber of Brown's other book "Adam's Fall" (Note: "Fanta C" should be read before "Adam's Fall" as the main characters are connected). I highly recommend these books. No romance reader would be disappointed!

I have enjoyed reading the more current Barbara Delinsky books (particularly "The Summer I Dared") and picked this one up recently. I thought the premise was fun since I love New England and rustic settings, but was very disappointed in the entire book. The story was unbelievable and improbable ... it was very amateurish and contrived. I had a hard time believing this was the same author of the other books I read. It was so bad, I'm not even passing it along to other friends to read; I don't want them wasting their time. My advice would be to stick with her more recent offerings which are very, very good !!

One of my favorite classic Delinsky novels. You absolutely have to suspend reality for this one, but I had no problem doing so. Loved the cozy feel of this book - makes me think of sitting near a fire with hot cocoa on a cold, snowy New England night.

This is a short book about two people seeking solitude who get thrown together in a remote cabin and try to make the best of the situation. They are weary of each other from the start and this makes for an interesting chemistry. He is the strong silent type and she tries to permeate his heart and his life. The ending was forseeable but was enjoyable nonetheless.
This book got some pretty bad reviews. I would have missed a real treat if I had listened to them. I thought this book was excellent--many 'life' lessons to be learned. The passion, caring--no negative comments from this reader. Even the ending which so many commented on as being unreal was not out of the realm of possibility. I thought the hero was truly a hero with human weaknesses and strengths. The heroine was an 'everyday' girl who stole my heart.

This was my first time reading Delinsky--it won't be my last.
