I generally don't read romance novels. I mean, I don't grab them when I'm just wanting to read for fun. I don't have anything against them--they just aren't my thing. However, I think a balanced diet is important in literature as well as food. So, I am happy to tell you about a new romance novel I think you will enjoy.
Rachael Renee Anderson is in my critique group. And besides giving incisive critiques, she is a wonderful writer. I was able to read Minor Adjustments chapter by chapter as it was being written. Reading in this way was interesting because, even though I knew how it would ultimately end, it was like a cliffhanger. I remember staying up late to critique a chapter and then send it back to Rachael with a note that said, "Write more soon!"
I'm not just saying that because Rachael's in my critique group. If I didn't really feel strongly about it I wouldn't review it. Or I'd say something like, "Has a wonderful cover with an interesting message."
I found this book to be enjoyable and edifying. It brought back the feelings I had when my wife and I were dating and in young love. That's a wonderful thing for anyone to remember.
The book is a quick read and Rachael's style is clear and straightforward. She brings the characters to life and moves the plot on with great economy. She doesn't get in the way of the story, which is not as easy it may sound.
Briefly, the plot is about a self-centered young business tycoon who is named as the guardian of a young orphan. He clashes with the boy's tough solicitor (aka an Australian lawyer) and sparks fly. But along the way there are wonderful characters and some genuinely moving moments.
This is a wonderful book to curl up with. I highly recommend it. You can purchase the book here. I'm putting the book trailer below.
