No Exchanges, No Returns. Laurie Kellogg

No Exchanges, No Returns (Book Four of The Return to Redemption Series)

 

No Exchanges, No Returns. Laurie Kellogg
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Usually I look for high drama and emotion in my romances, angst that I can wallow in and that seeps into my pores. Sometimes though I just want to read something simpler, something easy to read that’s just light and enjoyable escapism. Unfortunately much of the contemporary romance novels that fit this are frankly too bland and sickly but I know with Laurie Kellogg that she’ll deliver what I want. This book was no exception. I wondered how on earth she was going to handle the transition of feelings from one sister to the other without anyone feeling awkward about it, but as ever Laurie manages it superbly. What I love is instead of just sweet sweet romance, then a bit of drama then the make-up and finish Laurie’s dramatics happen throughout the novel. You never can quite predict what’s going to happen and that keeps it fresh and interesting. Its one step forward and two back with conversations and motives being misunderstood, and its not just the baby/sisters/hunky doc main plot but others which involve jobs, homes, other people and the rest of the families.
Its people with characters that feel real and plots that are ones we see in everyday life. Throw in a look back to the way childhood problems have led to adult attitudes, and there’s much more here than just a simple romance, its a story that’s able to fully engross the reader in the dynamics of families and friends, and means its a great way to escape reality for a couple of hours. It’s priced at £2.49 for 238 pages.
Stars: 4.5.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
