I'm going to start referring to her books as "Dina Silver books" from now on in the same vein as "a Picoult book" is used. This is my third Dina Silver book and I love it. It makes me feel warm inside when I close the last page. I close my eyes and fall away into my mind and go over all my favourite bits. The cherry on top is I love recommending Dina Silver books because she writes stories for women that make your heart happy. And they're all great.

Finding Bliss is apparently a spin off book from her debut novel, One Pink Line. To be honest, I forgot this and only remembered that at various parts. In my opinion, this is more of a standalone than a connected book where I would recommend you read the first book beforehand. Seriously, that's one less thing holding your back. Just dive into this novel already!

Chloe is one of the few female characters I adored and respected. You don't read Dina Silver books, scratching your head, wondering where the personalities went with all the female leads, or why the guy is so hot and amazing...but what happened to the girl!? Where she just follows and bends to his needs. Nope. The main character Chloe is identifiable for every woman who's been married, divorced or is a mother. I love watching her grow because she causes me to * feel *. Pain, love, excitement and she grows in this story.

Dina Silver's writing is evocative yet gives the stage to the story. You don't realise how big and flashy her writing is, but how vivid each scene is, drawing you in. I couldn't pick a part I got bored or even wanted to put down my Kindle.

Basically, I love this fresh story. A woman who grows and changes, overcoming her troubles. It's simply beautiful.

5 big stars!

This came to me by recommendation for my Kindle as a "love story". I found it boring, chapter after chapter of catastrophe after catastrophe. Well, not even a bona fide catastrophe really. Everything that happened to Chloe was glossed over in a chapter which ended on a new cliff-hanger which was then summarily dealt with in the next chapter. Almost everything that could have happened on the bumpy road to love, did happen - rejected by Tyler, the man she has idolised from afar, warned off by his Southern Belle society mother, not fitting in at law school because of her poor background but struggling though to win her degree with the help of Cam, her study buddy who obviously adores her but she just wants to be friends (because she loves Tyler!), a car accident that ends Tyler's football career for which Chloe is blamed, a wedding frowned upon by his parents (that high society couple again), inability to conceive, failed AI and then IVF treatment gives her the baby she wants but even that doesn't go smoothly. I won't go on, it's too depressing!

I didn't like any of the characters, they were stereotypical with no redeeming features and never felt "real". Chloe was a bit of a drip. Tyler, the object of Chloe's desire, was supposed to be an Adonis of athletic prowess, arrogance and sexual magnetism. I saw through him straight away without any help from the author! Her alcoholic, delusional mother also kept popping up to upset the apple cart!

Love story? Not in my opinion! Gripping read? Definitely not! Shallow, easy read - ideal holiday book - you don't have to engage with the plot or the characters and sat beside a pool can read all 34 or so (short) chapters in a day. Not recommended for anything else!

Dina Silver’s debut, One Pink Line, was one of my favourite books last year, so I had high hopes for Finding Bliss. It wasn’t what I expected, and initially I was a bit disappointed. But actually it turned out to be a bit of a surprise and a book that had me thinking about it for days after finishing it.

I’ve had this on my Kindle for a while now, and didn’t bother to re-read the blurb before I started it, so I’m not entirely sure what I expected. But it wasn’t the teenage romance novel that was the first few chapters: Chloe is babysitter to two adorable kids who are neglected by their wealthy, socialite parents, and confuses her lust for their older football-hero brother Tyler with love. I was rolling my eyes at the clichéd development of their relationship and the implausibility of the strength of their feelings having only actually met a handful of times. So far, the kind of fluffy stuff I’d read on holiday.

When the narrative started skipping through time more quickly though, I realised maybe I’d formed my opinions too soon. Without spoiling what is the bulk of the novel, I can say that Chloe and Tyler do end up together and Finding Bliss is about their adult lives rather than their teenage relationship, touching on some issues that Dina Silver already handled so well in One Pink Line (complicated relationships, parent-child bonds, pregnancy and parenthood) and some newer issues, particularly infertility and mental illness. So it turned out to be quite different from the fluffy romance novel suggested by the early chapters.

I don’t think Finding Bliss is perfect. There are clichés, in many of the characters and many of the situations. I wouldn’t say I found myself rooting for any of the characters, and I think that’s because they didn’t feel real.
