  • WOW!

    I've received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Loved the concept, how engaging it was and overall writing despite one of the main characters Clara which became the main reason I rated so low. There was just something about her that was off putting, but I digress. Besides that, interesting read.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Too many conflicts for my taste. . .

    This book takes the reader on a journey through the life of Clara, a recently widowed attractive woman, who owns a bookshop with an erotic book section kept behind a red door. Clara offers the reader a chance to put themselves into the tough position of someone who recently lost their soulmate to tragedy and then has to decide how or if they move forward in life and love. I believe that if a person does not sow their wild oats when they are young before they marry then there can be issues that come later. There is that feeling of regret that could cloud a marriage and lead to the 'mid life crisis' issue. What we have here is Clara who never did anything then married and was widowed and needs to sow. The author seems to not clearly know what kind of a book they are attempting to convey. If it is a fluffy hot erotic romance that is fine and fun. If it is a romantic story with deep emotions that is fine. Here it tries to be both. It is done so with Nick saying he loves Clara with deep emotion. Clara showing her love by grabbing his private parts. The book has so many conflicts that the reader almost has trouble keeping track of them. There is an epilogue that ties up all but one loose end with a bow but that is troublesome. If the reader has to wade hip deep through deep conflicts of every possible kind, it would only be right to have a couple of full chapters that let a reader enjoy the closure. The book could have used the last 20% for closure instead of three more huge conflicts. Just too conflicted in both structure and plot to really appeal to a wide audience. My Rating: 4 stars

  • Steamy thoughtful romance

    Through the Red Door, the first book in the Book Nirvana series is the first book I’ve read by Sadira Stone and was a very enjoyable read. I liked the setting of the bookshop with its special room behind the red door. Clara was a very sympathetic character whose pain at the loss of her husband you felt. Nearing the one year anniversary of her husband Jared’s death she is finally ready to embrace life again. When two men come into her life she opens herself to the possibility of love and a new vision of life. I liked following as events unfold and she figures out who and what she wants for her future. I received an advance reader copy.

  • A well-written romance.

    An engaging read. If you want to know the plot – check out the blurb, all the important things are there. I liked that it was about a woman who had already lived a full life, yet wasn’t ready to give up on love just because she became a widow. Very steamy from the start… And the books! The way the bookstore is described just makes one want to go and live there. I love this line “…taking a chance on me. For listening to your heart instead of your fear.” A well-written romance by Sadira Stone. *Oh, I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
