Day 4 – Two Moons of Sera by Pavarti K Tyler
Day 5 – Mending Fences by Lucy Francis
I ran across this release while perusing the Kindle lists for a contemporary romance. I looked at Ms. Francis bio and it appears this might be her debut novel. If so, give the lady a round of applause. Very well written. Good plot. Flows nicely. Evoked a sigh at the end (always a good sign for a romance.)
The story follows a typical romance formula. Curran Shaw is a rich CEO, hiding from an infamous past at his ranch in the Utah mountains. Victoria Linden is healing from an abusive relationship in the same area. Both have issues. Both need what the other has to offer but it’s a rocky road getting there.
This is where an excellent writer takes a boring scenario and turns it into pure gold. The characters are well developed with realistic dialogue. Their relationship and healing process, while raw and painful, unfolds in layers like a bud opening to full bloom.
This is the kind of book you want to snuggle up to on a quiet evening with a glass of wine. It’s a good read, and just right for setting a romantic mood with that Spring Break hottie.
