I also like that the romance is the secondary plot, with the primary plot being Ariel turning her life around. There is a bit of mysterious element to Ariel which I enjoyed. Ariel, the title character, broke up with her boyfriend and is struggling financially. With the help of the Muse Agency, she is on a path of self discovery and the ability to love again. But what is the Muse Agency? Why are they so secretive? How do they know so much?
So if you are looking for a fun beach read, give Ariel a shot.
Many of us I believe we’re living in a relatively idyllic life, that is until some “catastrophic” event occurs which upsets it. Such is the case with Ariel who suddenly gets dumped by her long term boyfriend; an event which many women can easily relate to.
Getting the rug pulled from under her, Ariel, like any other woman begins to wonder what as she done to precipitate this as there had ever been a sign of anything being wrong. She reaches rock bottom as everything around her begins to deteriorate; her living environs is now shambles, her finances are now askew; and her being in a dead end job doesn’t help matters.
Being a child of the 1950’s I’ve seen numerous cult-like groups continuously looking for individuals who have experienced some major setback in their lives to psychologically persuade them to join. The mysterious and secretive nature of the Muse Agency made me wonder whether any cult element existed there.
This is a wonderfully constructed story of a woman’s self-discovery, elements of which can be easily shared by other women as it tugs at their heartstrings and might do the say with you.
For pulling on my own heartstrings with the right amount of emotions and romance I’m giving Ms. Essen 5 STARS for her endeavor here.
Ariel is an eye-opener for all of us who are caught in the webs of past and just can't break through it. I loved Colin as much a Ariel did. A true man who willingly gives a woman space to think. Now that was such a chivalrous way of our hero.
All characters of the story really make you feel so close to them. They look like those with whom you live. The ever-commenting parents who can't be easily satisfied. The self-centered grandparents. A friendly neighbour. Busy and indifferent siblings. A terrible lover of the past. We all have some of them around us! I guess that really makes the story fun.
This was my first book by Fia Essen and I am ready to read her work further. I hope to enjoy each one of them.
If you love reading romance with the sauce of comedy, Ariel is certainly a good pick! Go for it!!
Therapeutic and touching, this story weaves you through tough emotions, gripping realizations and fills you with a need to ponder your own life situation. Ariel has a big heart but has lost sight of the positive. Her journey through negativity is inspiring and grasps at your heart strings. A self-help turned fiction, for anyone interested in helping themselves out of rock bottom while rooting for a lifelike heroine; someone worth the time it takes to relate to.
