About the Author

Author Delyse Rodrigues grew up in Greenfield Park, Quebec where she got her CEGEP diploma in Commerce at Dawson College. She had just finished one year at McGill University majoring in Economics when her family decided to move to Ontario. After moving with them she switched her career path to the medical field.She trained as an x-ray technologist and worked in that occupation for about ten years. Since then she has co-owned and operated a family business, done bookkeeping, and worked in retail. She has enjoyed writing short stories and poetry since her high school days. She always wanted to try writing a romance novel and Wrapped in a Rainbow is that accomplishment. Her next book is in a very different genre; it is more in the style of a Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew-type of mystery story (but with a bit of romance!)

I wanted to love Wrapped in a Rainbow as the premise sounded interesting, but unfortunately was left feeling lukewarm. The plot and storyline were very good, and I liked the little twists and misunderstandings that added drama, but I felt the story was told to me instead of it happening. It did not have a consistent flow. Sometimes the dialogue just did not seem realistic or natural and I didn't get a good understanding of the characters. I think Wrapped in a Rainbow had such great potential, but was just "ok" for me. However, the descriptions were done very well and I really did get a great feel for the Bahamas.

I m a big fan of trying free books and then purchasing from the author, especially the independently-published. This one made me regret being a compulsive book-finisher.

The storyline is so unbelievable. The dialogue is stilted and unrealistic. The whole thing was fairly torturous. The only parts worth reading were the author's descriptions of the clothes the main character wore!!

I must admit I really only downloaded the book because it was a cheap choice. But I really liked the story! I liked the characters and the fact that they stood by there convictions and were kind to one another. Kristy was good friend to her friends and they were good friends to her. We can learn a lot about friendship from them. Dave made some assumptions about Kristy that he was wrong about. It was fun to see him learn the truth. I also loved that when Kristy and Dave did fall in love they did not jump into bed together. The location of the book was great and made me long for the beach. The epilogue left no doubt as to what happens next. I liked this book so much more than I thought I would. Such a great way to spend an afternoon and the $2.39 it cost to download it to my kindle. No kindle? No fear-try the Kindle app for free on your PC, iPod touch or blackberry.

I read/listened to this book all the way to the end, and I had to remind myself that the copyright was 2011, not 1970. This book could be a vintage Mills & Boon, complete with a virginal heroine, distant hero, exotic location, and pages and pages describing the heroines wardrobe. There is even the evil/jealous Other Woman why tries to break up the hero and heroine. For some reason, she only puts in an appearance for a few pages before the hero catches her being mean to the heroine and puts her on a plane back where she came from. If you happened to skip over those pages, you wouldn't have missed a thing because she does nothing to further the plot, and I think the author just put her in for form's sake.

Eventually, I became fascinated with how formulaic the plot was, and it was fun to figure out what was going to happen next, and I was usually right.

If you like old Mills & Boon and Harlequins, this is the book for you. Even the cover art looks authentic.

Would have been a nice story if they didn't drag it out. It had a decent plot but the writing seemed a bit too forced and stilted. The story should have ended 2/3 of the way though as well . Like the girl gets her dream guy 2/3 of the way though the story.. Do we really need all the wedding planning details in the last 1/3 of the book? No. Bogs down the story. No more antagonist to carry on the story there. Also main character talks to herself as a third person too.' Unfortunately, I'm a bit neurotic and always finish books I start. This is one I wish I didn't waste my time. Just a very slow read due to the style and content. Seriously, too much filler and fluff. Better to keep it short and sweet. While I understand that some ppl like the book, I have to say I'm definitely not one of them. So I'm recommending a pass for this book.

I usually don't write reviews for books I didn't enjoy, but felt I needed to on this one. I hate not finishing a book so I am trudging through this to finish. I'm 90% through, and I had to stop and write this review. The author has a good story idea, but just drivels on and on about anything that comes to her mind. There is the already mentioned "other woman" that slips in and out so quickly you almost miss it. The other non-necessary scenes would be previous hotel thieves, house hunting, and describing every outfit. As some scenes progress, I thought there would be something that happens, but alas, nothing. Then there is the actual romance. I'm not sure there are still professional women in their mid twenties and men in their mid thirties out there that could date for over a year and be content with just a few kisses. You don't have to have explicit sex scenes, but this is almost like a Christian romance without the Christianity. Perhaps, the author should be writing for the teen market instead. I love reading new authors and like to encourage those that have a great story, but to Ms. Trink, I would have to recommend that she saves her money and finds an excellent editor to take out drivel.

I never got past the first chapter. Awkward dialogue, stilted writing. Big info dump in the form of a "talking to myself in the mirror" scene within the first couple of pages. Lots of red flags that this book would not be worth the time spent reading it. But the author did use proper grammar, I didn't notice any spelling errors, and there did appear to be a plot developing (however awkwardly).
