A Romance Novel by Ellie Mack
I met this lovely author at the gym. Ellie Mack is an author who can create a character anyone can relate to but it's best when the reader comes from the same background. We don't have people who are rich, super-model thin and riches flowing from their wallets like the Nile in Egypt. They';re real people. Red Wine & Roses is a novel I easily stepped in to and found myself a few imaginary friends.
Julia has a dream or two. She wants to own her very own bakery and she wants to meet a man who will love her for the woman she is, fall madly in love and be whisked away on a romantic trip just to fall deeper in love before wedding and live happily ever after. Naturally she knows these are dreams, so she rarely goes out or does anything that could possibly place her in a situation where she can be hurt. She's not skinny like the women she watches on tv and she doesn't believe she has the charm to capture a man's heart. She's wrong.
When she meets Derek, the guy she was not set up to meet by friend Jo and her cousin Mark, things seem to take off. But an ex-girlfriend and super-model seems to steal her thunder. What does she do? She runs away. But he comes after her, looking to rekindle the connection- in the same night! He seems like the man for her, even though he's got way too much on his plate trying to make partner at his law firm. But what happens between them is magical.. Sadly, as with any story, there's something of a tragedy in their future. Someone gets treated badly, someone else pulls off a terrible betrayal and hearts are broken. Mix that with Julia's disheartening background and you've got to sit with a glass of red wine!
This is book one of Mack's book collection and I can say that once I reach the end of the books I'm dedicated to reading and reviewing, I will be reading the rest of her stories. This book was literally a fast read and it's good. There's nothig boring about it. I do have to admit, some was a bit cheesy, but when are romance novels not carrying essence of Velveeta, eh?
I loved this book and if you're in to romance, you will too! Grap Ellie Mack's books - especially Red Wine & Roses. I'm moving on to the next read. Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day!
