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 Gabriela 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 perceived shortcomings. All and all, this was a worthwhile read - enjoyable andexciting!
The Book of Hours by Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is the second book of a series. I didn't read the first one and I thought that might spoil it for me, but it didn't. Ms. Alonso-Sierra has provided plenty of background information that brought me up to speed on the characters, allowing me to concentrate my mind on the story at hand. The characters are extremely well-written and you are given every opportunity to get to know them and to follow them from continent to continent. The plot itself was clearly well-thought out and was full of action and plenty of suspense, which is what glued me to the story, giving me an innate desire to find out what was going to happen. This is a real mix of romance, crime, and suspense, full of mystery, everything a great story needs. Fantastic story, really well-written and gripping.

This is the first book I have read by the author and enjoyed her writing. Her prose is vivid and you don't have to guess what she is describing. Ms. Alonso-Sierra has a gift with words and it makes the book a pleasure to read. There is never any doubt as to the setting. The story takes place in different continents and you move with the characters never doubting where you are.
The plot starts out a little slower than I would have liked, but picks up and moves at a steady pace, making you want the story to continue.
My only suggestion to the author would be to fix a few point of view issues. There were several times I had to stop reading and go back to see whose POV the story was in, thus pulling me out of the story. Though this did not stop me from reading the book.
