My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have given It's In His Eyes 5 feel good stars.
Now I am terrible at judging a book by it's cover and I am ashamed to say that this has been sat on my kindle for a while now because I couldn't bring myself to read it. The cover just doesn't appeal to me at all and after reading the book, I can now say it does not reflect the book or do it any justice at all.
Once I started reading it, to say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I was hooked by the end of the first chapter. Shelly Alexander has an amazing writing style that captivates the reader attention throughout this feel good romance.
Normally I don't like the kind of books that leave you dewy eyed and warm and fuzzy inside but there was just something about this book that seemed to appeal to the hidden romantic inside of me. Sometimes we all just something a little bit charming and lovely to make us feel good.
As I am new to this author, I wasn't quite sure what to expect but like I have previously mentioned her style of writing is truly captivating. It was filled with love, romance, sweet and tenderness and a little bit of drama to keep the sweet from being too much.
This may be my first book by this author but it certainly won't be my last.
Miranda Cruz isn’t just the best darned waitress in town anymore; she’s Red River’s newest innkeeper. But first, she has to find the contractor who’s disappeared with her life savings so she can start renovations. Not so easy for a woman who never depends on anyone, especially a man. And when a gorgeous old flame shows up, the fire between them is reignited and threatens to send her dreams up in smoke.
Acclaimed environmental architect Talmadge Oaks returns home to Red River on family business. He plans to get in and get out quickly because a professional catastrophe is waiting back in Washington. When an unforeseen snag keeps him in Red River longer than expected, he finds himself entangled in the renovations of his late grandmother’s Victorian inn. Handy with a hammer, he offers to help the beautiful new owner, but his motives aren’t completely selfless. Will his secret demolish everything they are building? Or can their undeniable passion keep them together?
