RRR presents... BLUE SKIES by Alana Oxford - REVIEW!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Post number two on the site comes to us once again via Rachel's Random Resources, and features a short story from the Contemporary Fiction that is decidedly bookish...and for dog lovers...and for those that want to believe in that magical chance of true love happening upon us when we least expect it but in the best way possible. Ladies and gents, I present to you today's title in the review spotlight...
About the book...
Life isn't always a walk in the park, but when Patrice takes her Pomeranians to the park after a rough day at the office, fate steps in. An unlikely hero comes to the rescue when one of her dogs gets loose. Short, pale, and kind of cute, Seth doesn't have a lot of confidence with the ladies, but he hits it off with Patrice.
But some things might be too good to be true. While Patrice wonders if Seth could possibly be "the one", fate steps in again with a horrible twist. Will it be a deal breaker or just a storm before bright blue skies?
At first, I actually thought that it might be TOO adorable...I mean, I'm all for things falling into place, fate, and meant to be pairings, but it all seemed a bit too convenient. No worries though...trouble strikes (hello life!) and things are certainly more on the believable side of things then without going completely off the deep end. Anywho, back to all that GOODNESS...
I loved our main characters; I mean they are bookish AND dog lovers...how can you lose? I love their little fur babies, a given considering I am a dog lover as well. I love their meet cute in the park with the rascally Mr. Muffin slipping his collar (the little matchmaker!), and Seth's valiant rescue of said fur baby (who thanks him in a not so polite way!). I hated to love the discourse that threatened to tear them apart, but again...it did make it more realistic, so there is that. I also really liked the blue skies theory, or rather the thoughts behind it, as well as the charm bracelet for remembrance. It's very true...life throws us whatever it wants, but it's up to us to focus on the blue sky moments and bring our lives back into focus.
So, if you're looking for an afternoon escape, and a little injection of Contemporary Romance in your day, CHECK THIS BOOK OUT!
