Quick and confusing love story

Love in the Maldives ♥♥

 Sandy and her friend Anne are off to Maldives for a much needed vacation. Sandy has had a rough time since she caught her ex-boyfriend cheating.

Once in Maldives, Sandy meets Paulo who is on vacation as well.

The subtitle on the book “Holiday romance where no one is quite who they say they are” did not prepare me for all the twists and turns the plot makes. Everything works out for Sandy and Paulo, but it is a fantastical story explaining how they get to that point. I could not even begin to explain without giving away the entire story.

Sandy and Paulo were likable enough characters for the story. There was not much depth, but I expected that since the book was a short novella. I finished the book in about an hour.

You have to suspend reality to imagine they would fall in love in such a short period of time. In my opinion, they did not do enough soul searching with one another to warrant a lifelong commitment. However, the whole story was fanciful.

Overall, this was a lighthearted, casual, and very contrived romance that could be finished while waiting at the doctor’s office or while travelling.

      • Haha, sounds like they might have tried to pack a little too much into the short format. Might have worked better as a full length novel. Well I haven’t read it so I can’t say for sure, but that’s what it sounds like to me!



    • It was very short. Some times, I want to read something really quick because I do not have time to get deeply involved in a full length novel. When done right, novellas can have some depth. But it takes a certain finesse to do it right.
