From NYT Bestselling Author Helena Newbury… five stars!
I was a huge fan of Nadia Simonenko’s Lost and Found: The Complete Series, so when she offered to let me read a preview copy of Chasing Wishes, I was all over it.
This is very different to Lost & Found. I loved those books, but they were very, very dark–great reads, but emotionally exhausting. This has moments of real pain too, but it’s balanced with more humor and escapism. All three are great books, but in my opinion Chasing Wishes is her strongest so far.
Racism rears its head several times in the book and I don’t think I’ve ever hated a group of bad guys more than Nina’s classmates. Seriously. You will know true hate. The heroine is tough and funny with the strength to do things her own way and follow her dreams. I spent large chunks of the book just wanting to give her a huge hug, which is exactly as it should be. The hero is…wow. Terrence is seriously dishy and Nadia writes the unique aspects of his character (I don’t want to spoil anything) very, very well.
There’s a fairy tale element running through this book. If you like things like serendipity, mistaken identity and so on, you’ll love this. Nadia adds enough grit and texture that it’s fairly easy to suspend disbelief and get caught up in the action. The book really flows, with good pacy plotting and I like the fact it’s self contained rather than set up for a sequel.
Oh! The love scenes: absolutely smokin’ hot!
My summary: Wishes CAN come true! A heroine you really root for shows a seriously hot hero the world he can’t see. Sexy, gritty, dreamy and all-round fantastic!
I just wanted to let you all know that the advance review copies of Chasing Wishes have all gone out as of January 23rd. If you were expecting one and didn’t receive it, send me an e-mail and I’ll make it right. I did notice that a few people’s e-mail providers bounced my message. =)
I sincerely hope that you all enjoy the book! I’ve been receiving lovely feedback on the book so far! Check out the review from New York Times bestselling author Helena Newbury in the next post!
