Ruth4 Stars Out Of 5Needed just a little moreSeptember 29, 2014RuthThe one thing I noticed right away with this book is that it is written from a mans perspective by a woman. I wasnt sure if it was going to work out or not considering the topic of infidelity, but it did. Gina Holmes did a great job of writing this story.
Eric Yoshida fell in the love the first time he laid eyes on the woman who would later become his wife, Kyra. Their marriage was good for many years, but then outside interferences, such as work, got in the way. After a separation, Eric fell to flirting and a one night stand with a co-worker. When an accident leaves his wife with some memory loss, he sees this as an opportunity to start over. But life just isnt that simple. I wish the author had dug a little deeper into their struggles.

She remembers most things, but not that her husband had an affair and they were separated. Eric hopes to win back Kyra's heart before she remembers all the details of their marriage.
I found the book interesting, especially since it was written from the husband's point of view. It was a good story with a decent ending.
GCCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Between 3.5 and 4 starsJuly 26, 2012GCCanadaAge: Under 18Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Dry as rain was a pretty interesting novel to read. Gina Holmes brings her own style of writing which combines humour and romance.
However there's another part to my opinion about this.
Meets expectations, honestly for this book : around 2.5 out of 5.
The beginning was promising and just flat out good. But as I kept reading, it seemed to me like the story could have had more life. It could have been more engaging. It just didn't come and get me as the reader; And I think that's because the characters (including the main one) could have been more (or better) developed. (Think about a good book you've read that just seemed like it could be a movie, because the characters were so interesting and felt 'ALIVE!')
Alot of predictable things in this story, also.
There's also the fact that salvation and freedom offered through Jesus Christ was not a very much present topic in this. God was mentionned and was important, but not THAT important in the story (it seems to me). And when dealing with a subject like infidelity in a marriage, that is worth noticing.
But I did laugh out loud while reading and some of the things said got me really thinking...
You go, Gina Holmes!
kattroxIndianaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5My ReviewJuly 18, 2012kattroxIndianaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Eric Yoshida, manager at a car dealership, has been married to Kyra for 20 years. He awoke to the reality of a failed marriage, one that was supposed to last a lifetime. When Kyra is the victim of an accident and her memory lapses from the time spent apart from Eric, he begins to think that maybe this is a blessing. Can love be renewed or will it just fade?
What a fantastic and realistic novel! I loved every minute spent reading and digging deeper into the characters lives and situations. I was highly entertained and found this novel to be impossible to break away from, but when I did have to leave it for a short period of time, I couldnt wait to continue and see what happens to the characters. From the beginning I was glued to the pages. Well formed and interesting characters, exciting storyline and ending. Romance, deception, heartbreak and compassion at its best. I will highly recommend this well written novel to others.
