Book Review: 12 Days to Love by Lisa Swinton
Lisa Swinton caught the romance bug early by way of fairy tales and hasn't been able to cure it since. Instead, she feeds her addiction with romance novels and films. In between being a doctor's wife and mother of two, she occasionally puts her B.A. in Musical Theatre to good. In her elusive spare time she enjoys researching her family tree and baking.
12 Days to Love by Lisa Swinton is another story in A Destined for Love Romance Europe Collection. Lily is free, free from home, free from work and everything she built the last eight years. She is scared to death. With her half of the Etsy business sold, Lily is persuaded by Maddie to take advantage of her windfall and go on a cruise around Italy. Feeling as unstable as the waves rolling beneath the ship, Lily is reluctant to agree to a romantic flirtation, even with a man as intiguing as Zander. The cruise is suppose to be a fresh start for Zander and an opportunity to expand his photography business. All he's interested in gaining from the experience is larger portfolio, but finds himself drawn to Lily. A cruise ship romance couldn't possibly last, and yet how can Lily and Zander resist.
This was the third book in this collection that I have and I am so excited to read more books. I received this book for my honest review. Look at this cover, doesn't it want to drive you to know more about this cover. So let's talk about these characters. I loved Lily and how she fought to have a relationship with Zander and her thoughts going back and forth. She truly gives the the insight of a female mind. Zander was a huge mystery throughout the book until the end. I was confused on why he was giving her the cold shoulder and yet still spending a ton of time with her. I loved this story and had to read it within 12 hours after starting it. Which is saying much because I have three children that are six and younger. This story was like riding a rollercoster of it going up and down and some loop-de-loops. It is a must read if you like clean romance.
