“Romance with a twist”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Avid reader
J. Hale Turner is a great storyteller. While I normally don’t read romance, I enjoyed Paradise Dreams. The plot and subplots drew me in from the beginning, so it was interesting to see how everything unfolded and how it all came together in the end. The settings were depicted so well that they were easy for me to visualize and place myself there, especially the island. I loved the strong female characters, even Alexis who I would love to see have her own story. There’s so much more of her story that was mentioned that I’d like to know more about, especially the revelation at the end. I’d like to know what happens with her and how it affects her relationship with her daughter, and if she’s capable of change. There were a few things grammatically that I saw, one being transition between scenes. Some chapters would just jump to another without any breaks which could get a bit confusing, but it didn’t take away from the overall story. I’m looking forward from reading more from this author.
