Sweet on You by Becky Wade – Book Review

Sweet on You by Becky Wade is a cute love story with a dash of mystery. Britt and Zander are friends from high school. Zander has always loved Britt but Britt doesn’t reciprocate the feelings. Zander over the period of time realizes that he is no more than a friend to Britt and leaves on a world tour. He comes back to his hometown after the mysterious demise of his uncle. He promises his aunt to find out the secret of his uncle’s death.

Britt offers to help Zander with the investigation of his uncle’s death. They grow close to each other but both refuse to risk their friendship. Britt is a very strong and independent character. Zander is a loving and patient boyfriend. The family of Britt is awesome. The entire setup of the town is very cute. The story is engaging and the characters are interesting. The mystery of a lost painting adds more flavor to the plot line. All in all, I enjoyed the story.

GONE by Jeannie van Rompaey – Book Review

GONE by Jeannie van Rompaey is a very unique book, one of its kind. The books is initially established in UK where a small family of four lives happily. Sarah and Alec raise their twins Kate and Ben in a very healthy environment. When another pair of twins visit them from USA to live with them for the holidays, the entire story turns into a nightmare for Sarah and Alec. Kate and Ben develop a strong bond with the American twins and eventually they leave to US on a so-called holiday but never come back.

Alec leaves to US in search of the twins and discovers a variety of truths about religious groups, cults and other strange groups. Sarah, on the other hand, realizes that she is never going to see the twins again in her life, drowns herself in art, painting and eventually gets herself busy in exhibitions. Alec finds a homeless young man of Ben’s age in US and brings him home and fosters him. Alec’s presence in UK with Sarah gradually decreases and he starts spending more time in US since Alec finds relief in taking care of the youngman.

Sarah falls in love with a widower Oumar. Sarah finds peace in bonding with Oumar’s fourteen-year-old daughter. Sarah decides to ask for a divorce from Alec but finds a conflict in her heart when she learns about Alec’s little secret, his foster son.

The story is very gripping with a lot of pain, grief, hope and love. If you ever loved someone and lost them, you must read this book. I liked how the author shown the characters of the story dealing with grief in different ways. Very engaging book and beautifully written.
