Welcome back everyone, thank you for being patient with me while I took a slight break. I wanted to make sure you got quality reviews without me stressing too much or not getting any sleep.
Surprisingly enough, Rachael has ANOTHER book out! How does she do it?!
Like all her books there is a sensitive theme woven throughout the story that the characters need to work through. In this case its about grief and the loss of loved ones.
On one hand, you have Sophie who feels responsible for her 7-year-old sisters’ death when she was just 14 and took her sledging. On the other, you’ve got Jack who feels responsible for his wife’s death because he didn’t come home on time and she took their daughter to a park and was killed. In both cases they were accidents and yet these events changed everything for both of them.
I’ve never been a big fan of the insta-romance stuff, but I know it’s kinda necessary when you’ve got a limited word count and so much emotion to fit in like Rachael does. For some reason this one bugged me more than most of her books though. I feel like that’s because of why they get so close, and how quickly they seem to change to make it work.
I feel like in real life it wouldn’t be that quick which kept me from becoming fully immersed in the story. It doesn’t stop it from being a great romance and a story of overcoming the fears that hold you back. It’s just not something I fell wholeheartedly in love with like some of her other books.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Monday I’ll be reviewing The Runes of Destiny by Christina Courtenay. Continue to read further down to find out about the author and any extra giveaways available.
Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.
She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.
A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
