Melanie has a way with words and her writing conjures up visions like no other. Into the Storm was well written, a little too wordy in parts, but well written just the same. Rabbit and Joshua’s relationship came off believable and Joshua’s struggle with his reclusiveness was spot on. The secondary characters brought depth to the story, in the way they helped through the tribulations of rescuing Elizabeth from her lie of a life with Brian.
I give this wonderful debut 5 out of 5 stars!!!!
You can also here me talk about this book and other on the bi-weekly podcast of Mystical Lit Lounge at Mysticallitlounge.com
This is a story about a woman, nicknamed Rabbit, who leaves and abusive relationship and gets caught in a snow storm and crashes on a complete strangers property.
Joshua, the property owner has issues of his own and is a bit upset at first when the car crashes on his property. He checks and finds a woman and takes her into his home away from the storm. She can't remember who she is or what her life was like. Because she's scared and timid, he nicknames her Rabbit.
Rabbit is sweet, and shy and quickly blossoms under his care and his loving nature.
Eventually the storm ends and they learn who she is. There are some twists and turns, but it ends happily and beautifully.
Would I recommend this book? YES!!
do I have a book hangover? YES!!
A young woman finds herself injured in a car accident due to a terrible snowstorm. Her car crashes on an unsuspecting owner who now must tend to her many injuries. However the man who tends to her has troubles of his own to tend to. As they are trapped together, they just might find a way to weather the storm.
This is not my first book from this author. I have an odd habit of finding an author who stories I adore - Over the Fence- and go through their book listing starting with book one. For some, it would set unrealistic expectations. As authors produce more and more offerings, I find they become more fine tuned, better paced, etc. So to review a debut book after reading a later book maybe both daunting for me to review as I have to remind myself 'first book'. However, I was pleasantly surprised by picking up Ms Moreland's debut novel. My surprise: I got a complete story. Joshua and Lizzy's story is starts with the accident but as the reader you journey through the ups and downs of their relationship to their HEA. Why the surprise? At 1/3 of the way, you get the turning point of the antagonist creating issues. Normally at 80%. But no. Melanie Moreland gives this and so much more of their story. What is nice about the read is I don't have to read through two more books to get to how their HEA plays out.
The story is told primarily from Joshua's point of view. Based on the prologue, it would seem that Lizzy has the most issues to work through. She is the quiet pillar of strength to help our Hero heal too. The storyline does lag at times as the author delves deeply into their problems.
If this was a first time for this author, I would definitely be intrigued and anxious to get to the next book published.Read more ›
Joshua hasn’t left his property for 5 years after an horrible incident. On a snowy day, he finds a woman who has crashed her car against a tree on his property. He carries her into his house and cares after her. When that woman wakes up, she doesn’t remember how she got there or what her name is. He continues to care for her, because they’re snowed in and there is no electricity to call somebody. Joshua names her ‘Rabbit’, because she reminds him of the scared, vulnerable rabbits he feeds in his garden. Rabbit feels more and more at home at Joshua’s place and Joshua makes her feel loved. They are both scared what will happen when electricity gets back on and when they find out who Rabbit really is. They can’t imagine not living together anymore after admitting their feelings to each other, but sooner rather than later the electricity gets back on and it will change their lives.
I adore both main characters! Joshua is an amazing man, I loved him from the beginning. He has been secluded for so long and doesn’t trust anyone, but he cares for Rabbit immediately. Also his dog, Bear, trusts her and doesn’t leave her side. Joshua is very sweet and caring. He opens up to Rabbit about his past and does things he never thought he would do ever again. When Rabbit’s past is revealed, it’s horrible. She becomes stronger because of Joshua and she needs him.Read more ›
