On Wings of Trust
Book 4 of Harmony Village Series
"He is a spine-chilling, supernatural being with some kind of an agenda..."
Three years ago, Izabella fell in love with her professor, Roman. He was older, sexy and everything she could hope for. So she did what she otherwise wouldn't have - she stalked him. When her obsession drove them to marriage, she realized her mistake by the anger in his face. So she left. Now, three years later, Roman is back in her life. Finding his Bella as a self-assured woman and not the innocent young girl he remembered took Roman by surprise. But he is determined to win her back, no matter how hard she fights against it.
My Opinion: This was a very different book. There was so much focus on the each of the main characters' feelings, which often stretched for pages at a time, that there was little plot. Just enough things happened to call it a storyline, but there was no fluidity, no real side characters and no building problems. Just events, feelings and reflections....and kisses. I must admit, the kisses were nice. The characters were nothing to admire with little background to give strength or credence to their actions or reasoning. Along with the emotional analysis was an overwhelming amount of reflection on God and downright "preachiness" of God's role in your life and how one should live as a Christian. I'm Christian, but this even felt smothering. In the end it was a fine story in principle, but didn't come out in a way that made it a good novel as well.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
