Something Tragic by Jessica Yeh

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆★ There are some books that hold you in a thrall of emotions that they create long after you’ve finished them. You have emotions...

Whiskey and Chocolate (Journey of Exploration Book 4) by J.A. Armstrong

⭐⭐⭐


Slow burn in a novella is not easy to achieve. But this one does it fine. And it is filled with interesting characters.

Forty-six year old Gina Thompson has decided to give up her mega-bucks-earning job as a realtor to pursue photography. Six years back she’d lost her wife of twenty years and brought up their daughter Chelsey. Chelsey’s moved out leaving Gina with no responsibilities to tie her down and enough savings to be comfortable. Gina’s best friend Drew and Sam keep trying to get Gina back into the game but that’s not happening. Till she meets Grace at a party at Sam’s. Grace is a photographer with commitment-phobia. For reasons of her own, Grace refuses to let anyone love her. She shies away from relationships. An unexpected friendship develops between Grace and a completely smitten Gina.

The MCs are nice and their relationship is developed at an even pace. This should’ve been a full-length novel to explore both the characters better and give them more growth. As it were, in the way it is, you’re left wanting to understand Grace better and see where the relationship goes. The book ends on a strange not with is not sad, not HFN, not HEA – it’s just dangling.

Nevertheless, this is a good read.
