Secondly, I want to say that when men write an outstanding romance novel, I am always blown away. I realize that sounds really sexist, but permit me this leeway. When I consider romance novels, I always think of women. I tend to associate men with thrillers, mystery, and often an inordinate amount of profanity. David Burnett writes a romance story with dynamic characters and a storyline that will keep you guessing. The story was never sappy, and it was one of the easiest books I have read in a while. I never lost interest in the story, and I struggled to put the book down. I was so immersed in the story that I genuinely cared about what happened to the characters. I love it when an author can get me so emotionally invested in the characters so that it will be truly memorable to me. This will be a book I can highly recommend, and I will not forget it any time soon.Read more ›
The Handfasting is a book that left me with my jaw hanging open more than once (and I am not easily shocked!). The character of Bill Wilson will leave even the most laid-back, casual reader wanting to punch him in the face for the main character. I had to put the book down and walk away for a few minutes because the interaction between Katherine and Bill got me so riled up. If you grew up knowing about the "old South," you'll find descriptions of the women in Katherine's hometown to be amusing and entirely too accurate. And you'll want her to find her freedom away from her family.
David Burnett's second book shows his ability to tell compelling stories about love lost and found again. His description of small European towns and churches reinforces to the reader that he has not only seen these places in person, but has explored them in depth, which helps to take the reader to the scene.
I highly recommend The Handfasting!
The author, David Burnett, absolutely grabbed me from page one. I was intrigued by the handfasting "ceremony" that was occurring and then after all of that the very first chapter threw me for a loop!
Don't let that happen to you. To be honest I was so confused the first 10 pages or so of the book that I almost put it down for good but like I said I was intrigued and kept going back to it. Boy am I glad I did y'all! I seriously read this book from page 11 to the end in less than 12 hours! I couldn't put it down!
The above summary tells you quite a bit so I don't really feel like it's necessary for me to go into the actual story but I will talk about the characters.
Dr. Katherine "Katie" Jackson reminded me of the girl who is absolutely gorgeous and has no clue at all. She isn't one of those overly confident women who look at men and think "yeah I could have him" on the contrary, she is more reserved and just sweet in general. My favorite scene with her (aside from the last one) was in the very beginning when she was out with her friends celebrating her birthday and a young man comes up to her and asks her to dance. She immediately looked at his friends and realized that this man was asking her on a dare and made it a point to accept his offer to dance and seemed to really enjoy doing it. That is the type of person she was.
Dr. Steven Richardson....hmmm I am not sure how to put this but in my head he is hot hot hot and I want him to have a british accent so very bad even though I am sure he doesn't since he was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia.Read more ›
