What books pique my interest and beckon to me?
A cover that is creative, lovely and inviting.
An author with an interesting bio on Twitter who is an engaging poster.
A book blurb that sounds fresh, intriguing or lyrical.
I have no special formula– just “aha! I can’t wait to read this book.”
I do not solicit manuscripts. I curate these on my own. Because…I am a writer who loves to read, learn and encourage!
This week I read:
by Bonnie Bartel Latino and Bob Vale
“…you’ve taught me that grief, like joy, is finite. “
“That’s true…but love, ahh, well, love is infinite.”
Do you crave a meaningful and passionate love story- a real story, with solid and believable characters? Do you want to share and care about their joys and sorrows? How about a military thriller- is that what you like- a page turner with compelling facts? YOUR GIFT TO ME will indeed gift with you an entertaining and thoughtful read- dashes of romance, humor and excitement mixed in a well-written and well-paced book. And the book is set in Hawaii- the delightful cherry on top of this meaningful story.
We meet Emily, a young widow whose husband died on active service. She is struggling to recover from her profound loss. Her best friend, nicknamed N’awlins seems to be her opposite, but they relate well and support each other.
“Sensitive, passionate, and caring. A man like that ain’t my cup of tequila.”
As a result of the loving scheming of friends, Emily meets Air Force pilot Ted Foley. He is one of America’s warriors and combines the focus and commitment of a solder with the perspectives and feeling of a soul who has also suffered a persona loss. Emily and Ted must face their emotional demons; can they do it together?
In addition to the beautiful romance of the story, there is an intriguing military mystery to be solved. I also found it interesting to learn about the military’s rules and organization. I highly recommend this “GIFT” of a book.
