Love’s Labours Won (available for purchase here) by S.G. Lee
This paranormal romance/thriller straddles the line between young adult/teen fiction and
adult fiction. The e-book is approximately 210 pages, and available for nearly every device imaginable.
This is a quick-paced and fun read. Sarah is young and unemployed but willing to work, making her a character that is easy to identify with. Sarah has no family to turn to for help — at least she believes she has no family. Where the book gets interesting is that when Sarah finds out (quite by accident on her part, she was just looking for a job) that she has family she didn’t know about, she opens a whole can of worms. There is intrigue, magic, murder and some doubt as to who can be trusted. Sarah is a strong-willed female character who is sweet and kind without being a pushover which I really like after reading recent fiction that involved “blank-slate” female characters with all the ambition and self-identity of a slug. Sarah never sits back and waits for rescue when she knows that she is in trouble.
I highly recommend this book. ★★★★ out of ★★★★★
