Romancing the Wallflower (Crimson, Colorado) by Michelle Major
Romancing the Wallflower (Crimson, Colorado) - Michelle Major

 

She taught him how to trust. He showed her the meaning of true love. David and Erin did not have an easy romance, but the cloudy days made the sunny times so much more profound. Romancing the Wallflower is the best of Michelle Major. A journey of love, a story of hope and a road map to understanding. The attraction is a combination of subtle and intense. Romance sneaks up on your heart and after tightly taking hold, refuses to turn it loose.

The Spirits of Nature (Spirits of Nature #1) by Michelle Post
The Spirits of Nature - Michelle Post
Prepare to be taken away and immersed in the lives of Rebecca and Philip (the historical leads) as this story will take you by the heart and pull you in, not letting go until you've finished the last sentence and will leave you wanting more.

This book is set on so many different levels - spiritual; historical; current to name but a few. There is a story that runs parallel as "Darcy" (the current main female) tries to find out about her lineage. 

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but was intrigued enough to get it and I'm so very glad that I did. This is extremely well written, with a pace that will let you absorb and also leave you breathless. The characters are so incredibly lifelike, the historical ones more so for me at least. And just to warn you, have the kleenex ready! From about 85% of the book I was crying, but whether they were good tears or bad, you will just have to read the book for yourself and find out.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Arc Review: The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond
The Marriage Pact: A Novel - Michelle Richmond

I found this story frightfully intriguing with a fascinating concept at its core.
Jake the therapist and Alice the lawyer, both successful in their own careers, receive a gift on their wedding day that will change their lives forever.

The concept of the story and “The Pact” itself is jarring at times, intriguing at others. It draws the question does the perfect model of marriage exist? Once the couple joins the Pact, it becomes the overseer that makes sure each couple succeeds at being perfect. If they “choose” not to follow its rules then they will face the consequences.

As newly weds, Jake and Alice weren’t sure what to expect of marriage but had a fairly good idea due to their own past history with their parents. The way I see it, one of the two became more content with the idea of the Pact because it became a sort of guide to accomplish what was wanted out of the marriage. The other partner was more reluctant to accept it because of fear that anything could change what they had already built together.

Alice appeared as a cold and distant person yet content with the role of a wife and I found that contradicting. As the story progressed and she got herself in deep waters with The Pact, Alice herself makes a confession that puts her in a better light and her role starts making more sense. Perhaps it’s the fact that the story is told from Jake’s perspective but I found him more likable and more relatable. There was a time in the story that I actually wondered if they were meant for each other or if the marriage was just an illusion they created for themselves because they didn’t seem to be in love.

To be honest, the book started a bit slow for my taste, so much so that I had to put it down several times and then come back to it. By almost 45% of the book, it was just ok but nothing out of the ordinary. And then it started to pick up and that was when I was unable to put it down and everything started to click and fall into place.

The book is full of quotes and facts that albeit provided an insight into Jake’s mind I thought at the time were somewhat random. It was later that I realized they were there to help me understand the underlying idea and helped tied up all events together. It took me a while to understand the full notion of the plot and tie up the knots once I finished reading the book (blame it on my slow-working brain) but all in all it was an enjoyable read.

I received this book from Netgalley at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

The Marriage Pact: A Novel - Michelle Richmond

This was one crazy cult. It was designed to bring couples closer together and make marriage their number one priority. The founder and executives that ran this cult had some pretty good ideas. However, I think that they were going a little overboard in their "punishments" for people not following the rules. Infidelity was punished severely and shamefully, and I mean shamefully.

That being said, this was definitely an entertaining read. I spent a lot of the book asking the couple, Alice and Jake, what were they thinking and why they were going along with it. Then I realized that if you didn't go along with it, the penalties were VERY severe.

A very interesting premise that had me yelling and screaming at the characters, a lot! 

Thanks to Random House-Ballantine and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
