Disappointing. I really enjoyed "Crossing Oceans" and was anxious to read" Dry As Rain." but this novel was lengthy without much substance.

Eric and Kyra's marriage is in trouble when she loses her memory. 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.

Dry 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!

Eric 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.
