Editorial Reviews


A sequel to "The Coin", Alonso-Sierra's novel, "The Book of Hours" picksup with Gabriella's story four years later, but in much the samesituation - danger. As a gifted artist, Gabriella created a copy of amanuscript for a charitable event. Unfortunately, her rendition of thefamed book drew the attention of a psychotic antique collector, set onpossessing her creation no matter what. Once her life was threatened,others set in motion a reunion with her only true protector, RichardHarrison. Thrown together again by a common enemy, the pair struggle tofind common ground and quickly realize that their long-ago feelingsstill burn hot. However, with danger looming and familial complicationsin their way, will Richard and Gabriella finally clasp their happyending or say goodbye once and for all?

Longing and regret, as well as suspense, were themes that ran throughout theentire novel, compelling the choices of the characters as well as thestory's pacing. Though that pacing at times felt drawn out, theemotional connection between Richard and Gabriella compelled the readerto keep turning the pages. The author skillfully crafted very real andhuman characters that one could not help but rooting for while bondingwith the couple. The energy level of the novel was high when faced withlife-threatening events ranging from a runaway car to kidnapping. Thesuspense riveted the reader to the tale compensating for any perceivedshortcomings. All and all, this was a worthwhile read - enjoyable andexciting!

About the Author

Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is a romantic suspense author with a unique point of view. Her adventure novels take place in locales across Europe and the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and extensive time as a global traveler. In her duology, The Coin and The Book of Hours, her characters, Gabriela and Richard, walk the same paths as their creator, though her life was never in so much danger. Ms. Alonso-Sierra’s writing career began circa age thirteen with a very juvenile science fiction short story, but the writing bug hit, and she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature teacher (and not necessarily in that order—she likes variety) and holds a Masters in English literature. She loves to hear from readers and, when not writing, roams around to discover new places to set her novels. Ms. Alonso-Sierra is currently working on her third novel, and lives in North Carolina with her husband and her dog, Amber.
