Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Finally! A story that reached itself deep into my mind and planted some pretty deep anchors. This book was a-freaking-mazing! This was a story that made putting the story down to live life, really hard. I didn’t want to stop reading it. The characters really make you fall in love with each of them for their own reasons. They are extremely well developed and will entice you deeper into the plot the more you read.
This isn’t a quick read, nor is it an extremely long read. It’s a great length and the author does a great job to cover the story thoroughly. That was a major bonus for me; I’ve had too many lately where the ending felt rushed or felt forced. It didn’t feel like the author got tired of telling the story or wanted it to end. The story was dripping from the pages starting with page one and it was wrapped up well by the last page. The story line is one of great detail.
To be honest, I’m not doing this story justice with my review. The story is riveting, sit on the edge of your seat suspenseful, and has make you melt romance. This seems to be a very well rounded author and the promise of more stories in this series is extremely exciting. I would definitely give this story a shot – if you don’t like it, well, then we probably shouldn’t be reading buddies.

Last year, I closed the door on a twenty-year successful career in television, to fulfill my lifelong passion, writing. In the space of one month, I shut my business, packed up my city life and moved to a small seaside village. LUKE’s Redemption is my debut novel. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. I love to spend hours walking on the beach searching for pansy shells, more hours drinking red wine with my gal posse, and the most hours writing romance novels filled with hot alpha men and the sassy intelligent women they can’t live without. I'm currently working on my second novel, GRAY’s Promise.
