Happily Ever After

Happily Ever AfterHappily Ever After by Elizabeth Maxwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ever wonder where writers get the inspiration for their character’s descriptions and personalities? What would you do if you stumbled upon one of your favorite characters from a beloved book while out shopping or in the elevator on your way to work? What happens to the characters in all of the unfinished manuscripts?

Sadie Fuller is very meticulous about developing her characters. She spends countless hours people watching to find someone she can mold into the perfect character for her books. Even after all that, sometimes the story goes unfinished for a multitude of reasons and she doesn’t think of it again. However, her characters have minds of their own and want their story to be completed. When she goes over her current manuscript and finds a character and parts of the story she didn’t write she fears she’s losing her mind. Her fears are confirmed when she stumbles across one her characters while shopping in Target. Little does she know that this unforeseen turn in the story in a roundabout way is meant to help her find what she has lost in her life.

Elizabeth Maxwell has written a quirky story that will remind readers of the movie Stranger than Fiction. If you’re looking for a romance with an original storyline, look no further.

Dark Witch (The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy, #1)Dark Witch by Nora Roberts
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

“Cowboy, pirate, and tribal horseman. How could he be three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all rolled into one big, bold package?”

America’s favorite writer brings us a dark paranormal romance set in the lush hills of Ireland; a tale of witches and evil and a fight for power. It all began with Sorcha and Cabhan in the thirteenth century but it’s their ancestors who will try to end it generations and centuries later.

After hearing this story, Iona decides to drop everything to move to Ireland and seek out her cousins to see if she is the missing link needed to banish Cabhan and his evil from haunting her family. In Ireland, Iona finds many of the things she has been looking for her whole life, family, love, and a sense of purpose and belonging.

Nora Roberts has written the beginning of what could be another great trilogy, wonderful characters, a great setting, a wretched villain, and an engaging storyline. However, trying to incorporate the cadence and vocabulary of the Irish language made reading the book awkward and taxing since it was necessary to take breaks to figure out what the characters where saying as opposed to just being able to read at a nice steady pace. While this is a bit of a nuisance readers shouldn’t miss out on another solid offering from Nora Roberts.
