This is a wonderfully inventive romance novel with a refreshingly new way to present a story.
Essentially, the story is told from two perspectives in alternating chapters. The story starts out where Gemma is at a fork in the road and must choose between using one of two plane tickets that will determine her future. The alternating chapters are based on which airplane ticket Gemma chose to use. It was a bit confusing at first, but after two chapters it became apparent. The titles of the chapters could have made it more clear. I don’t care for chapter titles that mark everything by time. After I got used to the constant switching at chapters, I found the format to be remarkable.
Once into the story, the dialog drives the story really well. It is a combination of happy and sad throughout. Unlike most romance novels where there are periods of happiness and sadness, this story weaves the two concepts at the same. Again, I loved the new writing approach.
Have you ever wondered what might have been?
Gemma Dawson is at the airport, staring at two plane tickets to two different cities. Two different weddings. Two possible futures. She’s at a crossroads.
Be maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding or crash her ex’s?
Gemma’s decision, unknown to her, hinges on a delayed flight and a chance meeting. Now her life is about to go down two parallel tracks–will Gemma fly toward a life with her first love or a future with a man she’s not even met yet?
In concurrent storylines, Gemma lives out the consequences of each journey. Different stories unravel with unpredictable outcomes for Gemma and her loved ones. As the alternative realities run their course, humor and romance intertwine raising questions about fate and chance. Will these parallel universes converge? Is true love meant to be? Is everyone destined to have a soul mate? Or are one’s cards just a choice away from reshuffling?
Love Connection is a romantic comedy about one woman, life’s infinite possibilities, and the destiny that lies beyond two different choices. First Comes Love is a series of interconnected romantic novels. However, each book in the series can be read as a standalone novel.
