Life’s Gateway to Happiness is a clean, well thought out story, however I did find it very long-winded with high octane emotions running out of control! Kelly’s return to the seat of her family home in seeming disgrace was realistic and one could understand her feelings of self-doubt and questioning of her value system. I would have liked to see her grow a backbone and take measures to protect herself. Alec is the original Alpha male, taking it upon himself to solve his loved one’s problems, not realising that it is enough for him to just be there and offer a comforting shoulder to cry on when required. The whole Alvarez family is close knit and the concern shown one for another is heart-warming, if a little bit smothering. Despite dealing with one of the most difficult issues women have to face, this was a good read with a satisfactory conclusion.
Life's Turned Upside down is a thoroughly enjoyable romantic read with a mystery to be solved. Gabby and Ashton started off on the wrong foot and there was strong animosity between them, reducing both of them to childish attitudes. Ashton's constant teasing of Gabriella by mispronouncing her name riled her up, and Gabby's blundering accidents keep Ashton off kilter. However, when the chips are down, the Alvarez family stand by Ashton, and Gabby takes a personal interest in unlocking Ashton's past. Ashton's childhood was one I could strongly identify with, as I was sent to boarding school as a 10-year old in another country. I too spent school vacations at school and only went home once a year because it was too far to travel. It is no wonder that Ashton became uptight and abrasive. However with the Alvarez family's constant support, Ashton begins to unwind and learn about becoming part of a caring community. Having read the previous books in the series, neither Ashton nor Gabriella were my favourite people, however in this book they both redeemed themselves and became people I would like to meet.
Having read each of the books in The Show Me series, it is a pleasure to be able to review this box set and this is my honest review.
The first in Ms Stone's series, Show Me, Life's Second Chances, was engaging, thought provoking , and dealt with a few sensitive subjects. In Alejandro's and Angelina's story, we read about loss, infertility, organ transplant, adoption, family support, faith, and love. You will fall in love with not only the main characters, but also the secondary ones.
In the second story, Gateway to Happiness, we are reunited with the Alvarez and Samuels families.
In this one, the couple we spend time with are Alec Alvarez, a pediatrician and Kelly, who works in the IT department of Lattice Works.
Kelly’s sister, Angelina, is married to Alec’s brother, Alejandro, a transplant organ surgeon.
Alec and Kelly meet again by accident , literally, and their relationship develops into a friendship. We find out that Kelly has been fired and is taking refuge with Alejandro and Angelina. She is no longer the carefree , happy person she was months ago.
The deeper plot deals with abuse and sexual harassment in the workplace and the author shows us how it affects the victim.
I have to say I loved Alec and at times found Kelly exhausting.
Sensitive subject was dealt with professionalism, and once again ,Ms Stone shows us that family , loyalty, and love are really what’s important in life. Another thought provoking story.
Book three, is Life's Turned Upside Down. I was a little concerned about this one since the main characters, Gabriella Alvarez, and Dr Ashton Holder act like immature kids and not adults. Once you get past their behavior and get into the storyline, you end up giving them a break and understanding that their actions are a result of past hurts and experiences in their lives.
Taking the step into opening their hearts and discovering love, is huge for them, but once they travel that very rocky and uneven road, their is light on the other side of the tunnel. Apart from the fact that I felt the stories could have been shorter, these were very well written stories.
Another home run for this talented author.
I was gifted this copy. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
