Keeping Grace Alive
It might have been a long time since I read a romantic adventure and the moment I held “Keeping Grace Alive” I liked it from the very beginning. Annie Lee has made a lovely attempt at creating a romantic adventure novel. It’s the story of two people, who are brought together by strange circumstances. These extraordinary situations make them explore probabilities and events that finally unfold the knots of fate.
It’s a romantic novel with its fair share of excitement, thrills and adventure. The backdrop is chosen well but would have been a treat if the beautiful locales of Pocono Mountains and St. Augustine had been described intricately to enliven their real picturesque beauty. The characters are well defined and very genuinely etched out; you will fall in love with most of them instantly because they are so natural. Even their furry snow dogs love them like crazy and that’s enough to bet that the readers will be treated with enough of warmth all throughout.
The pace is very interesting with no dull moments, at the end of every chapter you will feel like turning quickly to the next one and some chapters are so charmingly written that you can’t have enough of them. The story is closely knit with emotions and aspirations that make the plot interesting. You are sure to have goose bumps while going through the exchanges of the protagonists. The two leading characters have been created with hearts of gold and souls of steel. Nothing can bog them down, not even situations which can take ordinary mortals off guard.
The only things that ruffled me were the use of exactly same sentences while recalling some of the events. If they had been structured differently or used with different words it would have appealed more as there are more than one instance where this has been done in the novel. All facets of the story have been rounded off well and balanced giving it a sense of lucidity and soberness.
You will be entertained with some witty humor too, especially when one of the protagonists tries to propose and ends up making it like a threatening statement and sounds as if the other does not have much of a choice”. While writing the review I have deliberately tried not to reveal much, as even a little might give away the thrill which is so important throughout the story. So to keep you on the edge and make it worth a good read I trust you just need to get your copy and start reading.
