Book Review -- Raindrops on Roses by Millenia Black

Raindrops on Roses (Favorite Things Trilogy #1)Raindrops on Roses by Millenia Black
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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

This book was an enjoyable emotion-filled romance drama. Veronica Bauer, the legendary and enigmatic Hollywood actor passes away, having started and run the Favorite Things group of boutique hotels. Veronica's funeral is where the two protagonists, Michael and Veronica's grand daughter, Priscilla meet each other. Although they are instantly drawn towards each other, Priscilla is blissfully unaware that Michael has been in a long-time relationship with his high school sweetheart, which has lasted for ten years. While Michael, unable to take Priscilla off his mind, tries to figure out how to end his relationship with his high-school sweetheart, Amber, does Priscilla get to know the truth, and does everyone involved find what they are looking for? This is what the book takes us through, weaving the tale around what price one pays for unable to keep one's heart tamed.

This book is the first in the Favourite Boutique trilogy, and I'm already looking forward to the next one in the series. Such is the impact the characters create in the mind. Their emotional turmoil and the pulls of the hearts are well narrated - especially Priscilla's - her bewilderment, the pain from betrayal and the helplessness. I found the pace of the book to be just right. I finished the book in one sitting.

I would recommend this book to lovers of emotional and romantic dramas.

My rating for this book: 4 stars
