I picked Serendipity up for free a while back but I wouldn't have a problem paying to read other books by the author. I did check and as of right now, several of the books in the series are available through Kindle Unlimited.
I loved & could relate to the characters easily... OK, only the good guys! The main characters were intelligent, good people. I loved their humor & their emotional depth. They felt real to me. I cared about them & would actually enjoy hanging out with them - if they were real people, of course.
I love the story & the mysteries within. It was a cut above most mysteries, IMHO. I loved the intelligence & the humor throughout this book. The dialogue was simply wonderful. Some of the best I've enjoyed recently. Really fun stuff.
Other things that I drew me deeper into this book, that I sincerely loved, were the psychological and ethical issues that were discussed. It made me think as well as feel. I really love to be able to use my brain from a good book, like this. Life can be very challenging & I love to immerse myself in the world of a good book like this. It's therapeutic for me.
The bad guys in this book were truly evil. I mean REALLY evil. Honestly, I kind of wanted more than justice served. I guess it says more about me than the book when I say that I wanted certain people to die really bad deaths. But hey, it's a book, right? Hmmm, maybe I should seek professional help?
I plan to read the rest of the series... I will begin as soon as I finish this review. I highly recommend this romantic mystery! Enjoy fellow readers!
Unfortunately, there is very little in this book that is thrilling. It is a well written novel and technically meets all the requirements for a romance but the plot is, at best, superficial. The characters, other than the hero and heroine, are not developed at all.
I would recommend this book to someone who enjoys the banter and interactions of a developing romance. I would not recommend it to someone who is looking for a suspense filled mystery.
Wow! I can't believe this is Lisa O'Neill's debut novel as it's absolutely terrific. A well-written and ingenious plot with a great cast of characters - all of which had me reading every word of every page in one sitting. It couldn't be helped as it starts off with a bang, and after reading just a few passages, I knew this one was going to be a winner - and I was right. Its chalk full of suspense, mystery, and romance; a little action and humour - all of which I really enjoyed reading.
It starts off with Ava saving a man (Jordan) who was grabbed and thrown into the trunk of a car left beaten and unconscious by some "henchmen" who work for Ava's Uncle Carlos who just happens to be the "Don" of the Mafia. Only one problem - they got the wrong guy.
I loved both Jordan and Ava, along with all the secondary characters that make up this entertaining story. There's a lot of chemistry going on between the two; chemistry that Ava is doing her best to ignore; chemistry that Jordan wants to explore every which way. I loved everything about Jordan. Instead of being a big-shot, playing the field, a different girl every night, knowing he's God's gift to women type of guy, the author strays from the mainstream and gives her readers a regular guy who loves what he does; a guy who comes from a great family that's full of love and support; a guy who's charming, humorous, basically a mischievous fun-loving guy - all of which makes him so loveable (trust me, you'll love him). I love how he never gave up his pursuit of Ava.
Ava may be strong, successful, and independent, but there are times her vulnerability does come thru making her more realistic. Ava also comes from a broken home; her father's in jail, her mother has disappeared, and her cousins all work for her Uncle Carlos - someone Ava wants nothing to do with, or even be associated with, which at the moment isn't working as one of her cousins is following her every move (in the open).
First time I looked at her, it was like a lightning strike. Just... boom. All but blew me out of my sneakers."
Now I'm sure many of you know that I'm not a huge fan (okay, it pisses me off) of the quick "I love you," declared within 24-48 hours of meeting each other. In "Serendipity," the first "I love you" was said after knowing each other for two weeks. I still think that's really too soon; however, somehow O'Neill makes it work in this story so kudos to her.
"LOOK at me, Ava. Look at me and know. This isn't just sex."
It was everything."
Absolutely love that line.
A terrific book that I highly recommend. I so look forward to reading the next book in the "Southern Comfort" series. I just hope I don't have to wait too long.
