Slightly better than the first book in the series, which I pretty much hated, but still has a lot of the same problems -- too many characters and a lot of skimming over or skipping past major details. I thought this one did a better job of showing how practicing yoga helped the characters grow and deal with the challenges in their lives. Still, with a book this short that follows the lives of five central characters, you aren't going to get anything very deep. I still thought a couple of the characters could have been eliminated. I also wanted more of Graciela's story line. Her story gets really interesting about halfway through, and then it's just dropped for a while, and she doesn't appear as much in the second half of the book. That, and an abrupt ending with a lot of loose ends remaining, left me feeling disappointed. There is a lot of buildup around one potential conflict that never really goes anywhere and overall the book is pretty anti-climatic.

Bravo Rain Mitchell! I didn't think that you could top "Tales From The Yoga Studio", the first book in a 3 book series that captured my heart and tickled my funny bone but you sure did. While Head Over Heels stands on its own, and Rain brilliantly and subtly weaves what happened in "Tales..." into the plot, I highly recommend you read "Tales From The Yoga Studio" before diving into Head Over Heels. You will fall in love all over again with the 5 women Rain has created to take both an irreverent look at the commercialism of yoga while honoring the practice of yoga. Even if you have not gone into your first Down Dog, you will appreciate Rain's series for its warmth, wit, honesty, incredible character development and brilliant plot. I know I have to wait another year until the third book is released so I may just have to reread the first two books to stay in touch with my new found friends, Graciela, Lee, Stephanie, Katherine and Imani.

I enjoyed the first book, Tales from the Yoga Studio, quite a bit. Great characters. I was enjoying this book too, when suddenly it ended. No wrapping up, no seeing everything come together, we didn't even get to know what happened in the last scene between the main character and her love interest. I felt like the author had been called for dinner and just stopped writing. I hear there is a third book, so maybe I'll be satisfied by that, but really, when I buy a book I expect there to be a conclusion, even if there is a sequel.

I really enjoy the yoga novels by Rain Mitchell. They are enjoyable and fast reads. I look forward to the third and final book of this trilogy. For those who don't know, Rain Mitchell is a pseudonym for a male. This is the second of the trilogy, and I eagerly awaited it after reading the first, "Tales from the Yoga Studio." Although these are light on yoga's influence on the characters, the female friendships made through practicing yoga together is captured by the author. For those who enjoy novels about female friendships and/or those who enjoy yoga, this is a nice read.

I do a little yoga and certainly enjoyed all the yoga-centric aspects of this novel. But it's the characters and the story that kept me turning the pages -- I cared about all of the women a lot, and couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Head Over Heels is sexy, fun, and heartfelt. I also loved Tales from the Yoga Studio, but this one was even better. I can't wait for the next installment!

This book is a continuing story of a yoga studio owner, in the first book she gets divorced and is getting her life back together in this second book. Easy read and fun. I love yoga so it is a book I can relate to in many ways.
