Blog Tour Review: How a Star Falls by Amber Stokes (Plus Giveaway!)

How a Star FallsI had the privilege of reading an advance copy of this wonderful story and can I just say how sweet it is? For a novella, it packs quite a bit of heart and sweetness into just a few pages! Ms. Stokes branches out beyond her usual historical genre and tries her hand (beautifully I might add! :) at contemporary romance.

Derrick is a young man who is still trying to figure out what he wants in life. Which is extremely easy to relate to, for haven't we all struggled with that very question? And when Brielle suddenly falls into his life, she emphasizes how lost he feels. Which he doesn't appreciate at first! But it doesn't take long before these two lost souls begin to discover things about themselves through the influence of the other. And the mystery of who Brielle really is keeps you turning pages and wanting to know what will come next!

Mystery, romance, family bonding, and just all around fun makes this little story a delightful read. When you're in need of a sweet story and with only a small amount of time to escape real life for a while, this is the perfect book to pick up! Most definitely recommend. :)

"Are you familiar with Orion?"
Her question sent a jolt through him-a needle prick of memories from a childhood that felt light-years away. He simply jerked his head in a semi-nod.
She glanced up at the stars. "I'm from Orion's Belt." At his groan, she only grinned and added, "You could say the great hunter sent me."
"Is this some kind of joke? What on earth are you on?"

    1. I'm glad you guys still stick with me even though I tend to end stories sooner than you all would prefer, hehe. I'll just have to keep writing more stories - and maybe someday one of them will end up as a legit novel! ;)

      On a more serious note, though, thank you so much for the very encouraging compliment, dear friend! :)

    3. Amber, I am very confident that someday one or all of your books will be legit. Although I should note that I consider them legit right now! You are a writer, my friend. And a very good one who will only get better. I don't doubt that at all. So keep writing, so I can keep enjoying your stories! :D
