Devon's Dream by Anne Ashby, Book Review
Blurb from the book:
Time reveals all secrets. Single mum Devon fled Auckland as a pregnant teenager and made a life for herself and her daughter, Trix, in Australia. With her musical career blossoming their future is set. But a car accident while visiting Auckland puts Devon in intensive care and she awakens to learn she has sent Trix to her father. Ignorant of Trix's existence, widowed Rick is bewildered and angry at losing twelve years of his daughter's life. He will not be denied another day with Trix.Trix loves being part of an extended family. To her mother's consternation she tricks Devon into accepting an invitation to stay at Rick's house after release from hospital but will her plan work? Could her scheming bring her parents together?
This novel was great and it pulled me into a roller coaster ride of emotions right away! Rick, Trix and Devon's story is one worth reading. Trix was a wonderful character and so full of spunk! I enjoyed seeing the dynamics between all of the characters, not just the main ones. The characters seemed real and were likeable even with their flaws. The setting is gorgeous and it makes me want to visit New Zealand one day! This is a great read about lost love and trying to put a family back together amidst physical difficulties. If you enjoy YA and romance novels with great characters, then you will enjoy Devon's Dream! Four stars out of five. (This book contains some sensual scenes)
You can pick up Devon's Dream via Barnes and Noble or Amazon.
