There is predictability in the quality of Tia Louise's work, but not in her stories.
In One To Leave, the previously touched upon characters of Mariska and Stuart are brought to life.
Stuart, thus far a vague shadow figure, poorly understood, comes forward as an intriguingly complex and rather dark but delicious man, whose straight-lined and straight-laced life has taken a step onto a slippery and damaging side road. Reluctantly facing some of the fall out of his poor decisions, he comes face to face with a woman who instantly embeds herself on his soul.
Mariska is a contradiction. She comes across full of star-eyed innocence and perhaps even naivité yet at the same time displays an ancient wisdom that seems in conflict. She is irreverent and open, intuitive and loving, and relies heavily on her heart to guide her way. The instant she meets Stuart, she instinctively knows her path.
This story is not without its pitfalls, there are steep arcs of character evolution, in particular Stuart's, that make for a compelling read.
Theirs is a clear example of insta-love but written beautifully with a touch of magic. As a couple, these two are wonderfully contrasted, making their chemistry all the more believable.
My only note (and half-star) is for the large number of POV's this book is rich. It gives a 360 degree view of the story, but feels at times a little crowded with the many differing angles.
I highly recommend this sometimes dark, occasionally magical, but always rich and delicious novel.
Both characters are so real. Often we read books and there's something unbelievable about the story. I totally related to every single feeling - her quirks (which I totally LOVE because my great-grandma was part gypsy and had similar abilities!), watching a loved one go through something similar to Stuart, their individual pain, the hurt they go through as a couple, and the love at first sight. It's all real. And the fire that erupts from their sexual chemistry will ignite within you! Phew!!
Tia's books just keep getting better and better. I really can't recommend them enough! While this is technically a standalone, you can read it first, but it will leave you wanting more!!! I highly suggest reading One to Leave, and then going back to the beginning with One to Hold, reading the entire series in order - including reading One to Leave all over again.
