There's nothing here that some editing couldn't have helped. The writer shows true promise and just needs to be guided to make her books deeper, more emotional, more real. She has a theme of universal love as well as the reality of paranormal events in this modern world that needs to be read by a lot of people. I think in the future she'll really start to shine (let's just hope she changes her nom de plume to a more serious one).
Two more comments: why bring up the dog fighting? Talk about a loose thread. I was disappointed that the lead character didn't object even a little to it.
And I love the style of this cover! I've seen a few books like this and find the style very refreshing!
After seeing a picture of her alleged nephew that looks just like her brother, Shelby accompanies Raphael back to Grenada. There she sees a conflict between tradition and modernization involving an ancient ritual and her nephew. As Raphael and Shelby become acquainted, they fall in love, but he is a traditionalist steeped in his country's heritage while she is a twenty-first century modern American.
WISHIN' ON A STONE is an engaging romance that centers on the continual war between heritage and "progress." The story line moves forward at a fast clip because of the fully developed characters including several key secondary cast members. Raphael and Shelby will enchant readers with their growing love and struggle to find a common ground besides that deep affection for one another. Throwing into the plot a touch of fantasy, Eboni Snoe always tells a gripping story that thrills her audience no end.
