Book Launch! FORBIDDEN By Feather Stone
Forbidden by Feather Stone is a romantic suspense book that I consider simply excellent. It conquers you. I opened the book and started reading. By the time, I had reached the last sentence on the first page, my heart was saying, ‘this is a winner.’ You hear and feel the culture of the Middle East. My attention, captured, my curiosity grew. I forgot whatever I had planned to do and found myself walking deeper and deeper into the world Feather Stone had painted.
Her main protagonists had me sitting on the edge. I say, protagonists, because I saw Eliza MacKay and Captain Sharif both as main characters caught up in an intrigue that could take both of their lives.
Eliza MacKay, the paramedic, is the PTSD woman suffering from immeasurable loss and Captain Sharif, the devout Muslim who tries to keep them both alive. Both commit repeated centripetal actions which make them suspicious of each other before they realize only trust can save them both.
Forbidden is not one of those sloppy, soapy, unrealistic romantic suspense books that use bang, bang, boom in the bed to cover up for a weakly developed structure or plot. No, Forbidden is well-structured. I didn’t find any character situations that were unresolved. Think, Daphne Du Maurier, and you will see the same qualities in Stone’s Forbidden.
A writer’s ability to craft a story determines whether the reader will enter the writer’s world, and Feather Stone shows how well she masters her craft. She drew me in. She has woven together suspense and romance and has presented us with a well-written, well-structured and well-crafted story. Forbidden will keep you on edge until the last sentence in the epilogue.
Congratulations Ms. Feather Stone on an outstanding novel that kept my mind engaged. I enjoyed every reading minute. All the best for the future.
P.S. Beginning with today, Valentine Day, Forbidden is being offered for free until February 18th. So go to Amazon and get your copy now.
