In a world where everyone is assigned a lifemate at birth by the Gods, thirty year-old Honor is still looking for hers. When her new boss, Sedric, points out that her mate probably died before they met, Honor embarks on a quest for closure. She needs to know who her mate was and what he was like so she can move on with her life.
Can I just say, first of all, wow. I never thought I would become hooked to this book. A 253 page read, it was short, but amazing. I zoomed through this book with ernest, wanting to found out what happened next. I loved how unique the plot was and how intriguing the sub plots were. I also loved the different world Rachel created, where everyone had a lark (an incomplete design) somewhere on their body and it only completed when you found your mate. It was a world similar to our own and you could easily relate to. A genius idea!
This book is easy to read and will have you hooked from the start. You will also fall in love with the characters. I hope there will be a sequel :)
My favourite book, so far this year!
Your typical romance love story goes like this: woman meets man, they fall in love, there is a twist towards the end, then they life their happy ever after. End of story. Honor’s Lark is not like that at all. It’s such an unique story. I have never read anything similar to it. It’s actually very difficult to categorize it in any way. It’s a bit of romance, a bit of fantasy but so realistic to our own world though.
Honor Sandavol lives in a world where parents called lifegivers and Gods control your romantic fate by larks. Usually you find your lifemate between the age of 18 and 25. Honor is 30 now and has yet to find her lifemate. That makes her very frustrated, selfish and jealous of everyone around her who has found his/her lifemate yet. Honor works at Taylor & James Consulting and is a team-building specialist. When Sedric Eckland starts his job as her new boss, he recognizes Honor’s unhappiness. They get to know each other and talk about Honor’s lark. Sedric thinks Honor’s lifemate died before they could find each other. He offers to help her to find what she’s looking for. To introduce Sedric to his new work, they travel around the country for business meetings. In the evenings they spend their time in libraries for looking after her lost lifemate. As they spend more and more time together, they come closer.
In the beginning it was a bit hard for me to like Honors because she was such a bitter person but her sarcasm and saying always what she thought were very refreshing. I loved reading about her development from the first until the last page. She learns about her lifemate, comes to new conclusions about larks, friendship. love, and happiness. What I really liked about Hornor was that she has such a strong bond to her family and knows how important they are. Sedric is a wonderful character. I loved how he supported Honor in every way. Rachel is writing a sequel to Honor’s Lark in which she will tell us Sedric’s story. I can’t wait to read that!
There are so many things which gave a special touch to the story. Honor being the Dessert Fairy and all those mini plots within the storyline. Rachel has written a wonderfully, very well developed novel about finding love.

Rachel Hamm's new book Honor's Lark achieves this by asking the question: "What would a world be like in which ALL relationships are truly fated?" Well, ALMOST all relationships. The main character, Honor, is someone who doesn't fit the mold. She seems lost. How does she adapt to her world? Better question-- How does her world adapt to her?
This book is well-written and well-developed, deftly balancing the expectations of romance readers and fantasy readers. There are no vampires, no meta-humans, no ghosts, and no extra-terrestrial romances. It's a parallel world with just a SINGLE basic modification from our own Universe. What if you knew there was one person out there who you are waiting to find and who is waiting to find you?
At first it's difficult to like Honor. We readers always want to like the main character, especially if we are totally trapped in their heads, subject only to their sole and limited perspective.
As you read between the lines you begin to see the cracks in the 'perfection' of this world. You and Honor meet Sedric, who's a breath of fresh air in spite of his mystery and tragedy.
Then, subtly, your opinion changes about Honor and before you know it you love her and all her flaws. You've made it to the end of the book and you're biting your nails, waiting for the next one.
