About the Book
Ian McKinney’s wife tried to kill him, and that made up his mind for good. He’s out of the dating game. He has friends, a comfortable job, other things to fill his life.
Then Allison Hoff walks into it. She’s never recovered from the death of her spouse and is now trying to somehow move on. Maybe if she loses a few pounds, builds her self-esteem …
But when she asks him to fill in as her date to the Fourth of July police
Love and Roses by Suzanne D. Williams is a great story that I could not put down until I had finished it in one sitting. On the title page Suzanne wrote that the book was a feel good romance and that is very true. When I finished reading the story, I had a smile on my face and was wishing that the story would continue. After Ian McKinney’s wife hired someone to kill him, he made up his mind that his friends and job were enough to make his life complete and he had no intention of ever dating again. Shortly after making this decision, Allison Hoff entered his life. She was the widow of a policeman killed in the line of duty and she was having a hard time going on with her life. On a whim Allison invites Ian to be her date for the Fourth of July police dance. Then everything seems to go wrong.
True to form, Suzanne did an excellent job in the writing of this story. The characters came alive on the pages of the book and I immediately liked Ian and Allison and was hoping that they would become a couple. The dialogue was well thought out and written. Sometimes I wanted to just shake Allison because of her refusal to let go of her dead husband and move on with her life. I felt this way for Ian was such a great guy and Allison finally came to realize that fact. The plot was well thought out and well developed and made for a very interesting and entertaining story. I was very happy with the way that the story ended.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a great feel good romance that also includes love for God and forgiveness.
