One of the best things about having friends who are authors, is that sometimes you get to read their books before everyone else. I especially love it when it is a good old fashion romance novel with plenty of drama and twists. My friend, Rachel Skatvold, has certainly mastered that.
Her second book, Beauty Unveiled, has just hit the market and I can’t tell you I loved it enough. I started reading it and made it about four pages when I stopped and picked up the first one again. It was called Beauty Within and I had loved it too. I wanted a refresher of the characters and all that had happened to bring us to this point starting in the second book. So I laid on the chaise in the living room and re-read the first one. That is what I call a good day.
Of course, you don’t have to read the first one to jump into the second one, but why would you deprive yourself of a great book? Just like what happened in the first one, drama continued to unfold and more twists and surprises had me hanging on every page. At one point when tragedy struck, I found myself saying out loud, “No! Rachel! You wouldn’t!” But she did. And then I didn’t dare put the book down until I found out how the situation panned out.
I love an easy read, a good juicy romance and characters with great faith in God and others. This book is the perfect mini-vacation for me. And it was worth the sleep I lost trying to finish the book. Totally worth it.
Rachel has a third one coming out, and I am dying to know what it is about, and what happens to these characters I have grown attached to. But, no, I have restrained myself from asking. Not an easy task.
Rachel has a give away as well as a summary about Beauty Unveiled below I want to share with you. If you are looking for a well-written, captivating romance story that is also honoring to God, I highly recommend both of Rachel’s books. I promise you will enjoy every word. And if you have teenage girls who like to read, these books are inspirational and pure enough for your young lady to read. I like that fact very much.
Congratulations Rachel, on another excellent book. Tell me what happens next PLEASE! No. I’ll wait. Okay, give me a hint….yes?
