    I m not always a fan of novellas, but this one hits the spot It s a tropical holiday, a fine dining experience, and a romance all rolled into one Great writing that manages to fit a well developed story into a short amount of space Just right for a little night cap after a hard day

    Carla Laureano does it again Once I got started on this novella, I could not put it down, and no one was going to interrupt my reading time with these characters Thankfully I was able to read uninterrupted Best gift ever from hubby and kids From scene one I just knew this one was going to be an entertaining read and carry me away to Belize for a few hours as Bethany Hall s story unfolded.Set in the Caribbean paradise of Belize, this book not only tells the story of Bethany Hall while she p Carla Laureano does it again Once I got started on this novella, I could not put it down, and no one was going to interrupt my reading time with these characters Thankfully I was able to read uninterrupted Best gift ever from hubby and kids From scene one I just knew this one was going to be an entertaining read and carry me away to Belize for a few hours as Bethany Hall s story unfolded.Set in the Caribbean paradise of Belize, this book not only tells the story of Bethany Hall while she plays tour guide to a jilted groom, Belize becomes a character too You can almost feel the warm breeze on your face and smell the salty air This is not your typical scuba diving adventure though, which I loved, Bethany finds other interesting things to do and leaves the scuba diving and snorkeling out of it Instead we are taken on a tour not only of this beautiful setting, but also we get to watch the emotional struggles develop between these two characters who are disillusioned with love.The best thing about this novella is the pace at which the story progresses, you are not left in agony waiting in anticipation while the story slowly develops Carla jumps right in, and from the opening line, Bridezilla Incoming you are hooked until the very last page Romance at it s best This author is one to watch I can t wait to see what she has for her readers next Talented, smart and contemporary, Carla Laureano delivers top quality writing time and time again
