Book Review: Saving Alessandra

I was given the opportunity to review a book for a lady that I work with.  I must be honest, at first I was very excited...I love reading and I am rather opinionated, then I was nervous.  I have read and reviewed books before and had no problem offering my opinion.  As those of you who know me personally are aware, I very rarely sugar coat anything.  I got nervous because I was afraid the book was going to be boring, or hard to follow, or hard to get into, and I really didn't want to hurt her feelings. Luckily, I didn't have to worry about that. 

Saving Alessandra by Christine Maria Jahn

There are three main characters in the book, and because of the time period in which it was written (1800s) and the cultural status of the characters it was an adjustment to keep them apart.  I learned so much about a time period that I had never given a thought to before as far as fiction is concerned.  It is classified as a romance novel on Amazon, it is not a "typical" romance novel.  It is a love story  and is a very tastefully appealing book to those that enjoy that genre. 
My ultimate recommendation is that I would recommend this book to my fellow bloggers, it was a good read for me.  
This is the first in a set of three books that she has written and her first published book.  If you follow the above link, you can purchase your own straight from the Amazon site.  If you are a local friend and are interested in purchasing this book, let me know and I will get you connected with the author.
