Book Review: The Stars of Mithra Trilogy by Nora Roberts

Genre: Romance, Mystery
Format : Paperback + eBook
Rating : 4/5 stars

I’ve seen Nora Roberts’ books countless of times whenever I visited a bookstore. Yet it was only now when I have the chance to read her works that I find her writing’s surprisingly pleasant.

I read the first two installments from a paperback format and finally the last in ebook format. Why the publishers don’t bundle all 3 books together for a complete trilogy puzzled me. Luckily I manage to find the 3rd book or else I would be disappointed to learn that I’ve read an incomplete series from the paperback book!

The Stars of Mithra is about 3 dazzling diamonds and 3 best friends — Bailey, MJ and Grace — featured in each book respectively.

The writing flowed nicely providing a lively description of the characters and a solid background setting. I appreciate the simplicity in writing which conveyed the theme of love that held the story together. The conversation between the characters are enjoyable too, thrown in with some humour.

Yet perhaps since it’s a light read I’m afraid the story is kind of predictable. The main mystery case wasn’t quite suspenseful as I’ve expected and there wasn’t much build up to the climax. The closure of the story was over before I’ve had the satisfaction of resolution.

Would I read Nora Roberts again? Yup, and some of the series got my attention like The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy and Dream Trilogy. To be honest  I wanted to read her books because her book covers are so pretty! ❤

Book Review: The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson & Richard DiLallo

Where I Bought : MPH Warehouse Sale

Price: RM10

Rating : 3/5 stars

I started reading this book on 15th December, thinking now would be in season to read a Christmas themed book, and it took me just one day to complete reading it, Patterson’s book is such a page turner!

There are plenty of characters to be introduced in a 266 paged book which explains the least explored characteristics of each person. However the authors cleverly revealed their distinct characters in separate parallel timed stories and through their way of communication & relationship with each other and the main character.

Reading somewhere down the pages you’ll even wonder the characters described are either handsome, capable or truly beautiful, sounds fairytale isn’t it?

The book is also filled with fun festive air, some twists in between which resolved into an even merrier conclusion. Let your imagination run wild together with Gaby, her farm wedding and the family who is to be reunited with a splendid Christmas surprise that they will remember for their lives.

I would recommend this book for a light hearted Christmas festive reading.
