A New Review for Love In Translation!

This review and others can be found on Cozy Up With A Good Read

This book sounded right up my alley, and I’m really glad I read it. After her boyfriend breaks up with her, Emily decides she needs to move on and not settle anymore. It was really great to see Emily grow and learn about herself and learn from past mistakes. This book is very fast paced and in a way I think it took away from the story.

As much as I enjoyed everything that was happening, I found that the story needed to be longer and a little more fleshed out with the story. Everything just seemed to happen so fast and then the story ended. I think the story could have been a few chapters longer so that readers could have gotten a little more.

I did really love most of the characters, Emily’s friends are so supportive through everything and I love reading a book with people like that. Both of her girl friends are the type of characters that just add that little extra fun into the story. But the one person I loved the most was Emily’s friend Stephen, he was adorable and seeing everything they had been through together was adorable, I wished there was a little more of him and Emily together.

What really grabbed my attention with the story was how Emily learns to put herself out there. And also, how Sara Palacios shows that sometimes you find what you are looking for when you actually take a step back and let things happen for themselves.

All in all I did enjoy the story, I just felt like there was a little something missing and that it was too short to really get into the story. The story starts and before you know it everything is happening and it’s wrapping up. The characters were good and there was a lot of fun things happening in the story though.


Feels Like Home

I am so excited to finally announce that I am so close to finishing my new novel, Feels Like Home. This book has been so fun to write and I can’t wait to finally share it with you all. Here is a little bit about the new book (please keep in mind that this is a very rough synopsis):

Erin McCormick, is a rising New York high fashion photographer with the world at her finger tips, but she has a secret. When her past finally catches up to her, she is forced to head back to Texas to confront the death of her parents and the high school sweetheart she left behind. A budding musician in his own right, she runs into him one fateful night and discovers the flame still flickers. At a crossroads, she is forced to choose between the two worlds: her present life of being a thriving and highly sought after photographer with secrets, or her past life, where things just feel right, no matter how hard she fights it.

Erin soon learns that the decision isn’t as easy as it seems but there is no denying what your heart tells you, and ultimately, what feels like home.
