Product description

About the Author

Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra is a romantic suspense author with a unique point of view. Her adventure novels take place in locales across Europe and the United States, reflecting her international upbringing and extensive time as a global traveler. In her duology, The Coin and The Book of Hours, her characters, Gabriela and Richard, walk the same paths as their creator, though her life was never in so much danger. Ms. Alonso-Sierra’s writing career began circa age thirteen with a very juvenile science fiction short story, but the writing bug hit, and she has been writing, in one capacity or another, ever since. She has worked as a professional dancer, singer, journalist, and literature teacher (and not necessarily in that order—she likes variety) and holds a Masters in English literature. She loves to hear from readers and, when not writing, roams around to discover new places to set her novels. Ms. Alonso-Sierra is currently working on her third novel, and lives in North Carolina with her husband and her dog, Amber.

The return of Richard and Gabriela, with a hugely different set of circumstances. Different country, different everything. Again full of intrigue etc as before, with the added question of how can the pair resolve things from their previous lives. I won't spoil it.

The character of Wickeham is horrible, but truly fascinating. From the beginning you really despise him, and can see where he is going. He is the classic bully, awful but underneath he isn't so clever as he tries to tell people he is. The difference in Gabriela is amazing and surprising as to how a character changes over time, but believably so.

Loved these two books, and cannot wait for more!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Their love story is one of the best I have read ... 27 Feb. 2015
By Sandra M. Bruney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait for this sequel to The Coin and The Book of Hours was definitely worth the wait. The author knows how to keep the action going at a fever pitch, but she also keeps the tension between Richard and Gabriela as strong or stronger than it was in "The Coin." These two are both strong-willed people who also have strong principals. Their love story is one of the best I have read in a long while. Cheers to the author and I hope I don't have to wait long for another story about these two as they finally are able to be together -- because I don't think the fireworks end with this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars A fun read. 24 Aug. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

The book preview accurately describes the book so I won't repeat it. As the story is full of twists and surprises, I do not want to give any more of the story away than is stated.
This is the first book I have read by the author and enjoyed her writing. Her prose is vivid and you don't have to guess what she is describing. Ms. Alonso-Sierra has a gift with words and it makes the book a pleasure to read. There is never any doubt as to the setting. The story takes place in different continents and you move with the characters never doubting where you are.
The plot starts out a little slower than I would have liked, but picks up and moves at a steady pace, making you want the story to continue.
My only suggestion to the author would be to fix a few point of view issues. There were several times I had to stop reading and go back to see whose POV the story was in, thus pulling me out of the story. Though this did not stop me from reading the book.

By Irma - Published on Amazon.com

I have been waiting to read this Book since I finished The Coin and I have to say that the wait was worthwhile! Once again Mrs. Sierra keeps you in nail biting suspense while at the same time engaging you with the intense, passionate relationship of Richard and Gabriela. There are chapters in which I felt like I was watching an episode of Criminal Minds, and others where it was like watching a beautiful love story! I just could not put it down, I even arrived very late at a dinner invitation because I couldn't stop reading! Highly recommend it!
4.0 out of 5 stars Another thriller that takes you beyond the borders of the USA!! 27 Aug. 2016
By Deborah S. Craft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This second book of Ms. Alonso-Sierra was another thriller that kept you reading. I love the way she paints a picture in the readers mind as the story moves forward...never interfering with the flow of the novel. Her characters are well developed...some you hate and some you love, and of course the ones you love keep you reading hoping they will survive. I don't want to give anything away, but I will say if you're looking for a thriller Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra's books are a must read!! (The Coin & The Book of Hours)

This was just as exciting as the first book. The people are well drawn and interesting. The story is fascinating and I couldn't stop reading. I loved both books and can only say I liked "The Coin" better because I knew another one followed and now there are no more. I wish them welll and am sorry to see them go. This is most certainly a must read for mystery, thriller and romance fans.
