Romance Review and Giveaway: Stay a Little Longer by Dorothy Garlock (Ends 8/11) CLOSED

Wednesday, July 28, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
Louise Watkins has her hands full. Her mother had been the town midwife, but when her daughter Alice died under her care, she refused to assist in a childbirth ever again. Since then Louise has assumed the work. She also takes care of Alice's six-year old, Charlotte, because the child's father was lost in World War I. But Louise's principal job is running the boardinghouse that is the family's main source of income. One day, Charlotte befriends a stranger ill with influenza, a man who has taken refuge in an old cabin in the woods nearby. Although badly scarred by wounds suffered in the War, he is strong and slowly recovers. When he gradually takes on odd jobs around the house, Louise accepts his help. She is drawn to him despite his disfigurement, and his voice is comforting, vaguely familiar...

My Review
Stay a Little Longer is a charming love story, masterfully written and moving. The story has everything: love and drama, loss and redemption, forgiveness and second chances, the good, the bad and the ugly. War and the scars it leaves on families is condemned without preaching. I felt emotionally involved in the plight of the characters, and enjoyed the book to the last page.

    I just read Lily Gayle's modern day paranormal romance, OUT OF THE DARKNESS. Vincent Maxwell is a vampire who wants to be human again and discovers that Dr. Megan Harper has discovered a possible cure to vampirism, so he worms his way into her research and into her heart as well. Can a vampire and a mortal find a way to blend their lives and in the process find happiness together?
    The plot turns, the familiar settings and the sexual scenes between Megan and Vincent were a fantastic, a can't put down read and the surprising ending was superb with supporting characters such as a compelling vixon (Sonia), and a best friend (Tina). Of course, as an added attraction there were very chilling villains.
    OUT OF THE DARKNESS is Lilly Gayle's first novel, but I'm sure there will be many more entertaining novels in the future.

    Best book ever: "Magic Bites" by Ilona Andrews. There are 4 books so far in this series. About a kick-ass heroine with a sword who takes on things that go bump in the night. No cliff-hangers in these books. Each can stand alone. My first foray into this genre; but now I'm hooked.
