Book Review -- The Courage to Love by Christina Tetreault

The Courage To Love (Love On The North Shore)The Courage To Love by Christina Tetreault
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

This sweet and endearing tale revolves around celebrated Hollywood actor Mia Troy, who yearns to have a quiet few days to herself, away from all the glare and spotlight, and Sean O'Brien, who co-owns the modest and homely bed and breakfast joint that Mia comes to, to spend those "quiet and peaceful" days. As luck usually has it, Mia and Sean are drawn to each other. While Mia battles her fears for what would come out of it, Sean, who has been shouldering a lot of responsibilities right from a pretty young age, is convinced that all Mia is looking for is a short and casual fling. Do they clear each other's misunderstandings, or do they go their separate ways, is what the book takes us through.

Although mildly predictable, the plot holds the reader's interest all the same. The book is set at a good pace and helps the readers absorb the depth of the two protagonist characters. Sean's character is particularly carved out well, helping the reader understand the reasoning behind his cynicism and his contempt. The character's turmoil, when being pulled between his inner voice and Mia's alluring presence, is nicely narrated too.

Overall, this was a good read and I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of romance genres.

My rating for this book: 4 stars
