Review: "The Love Market" by Carol Mason
Why haven't I heard of Carol Mason before? She writes beautifully, and even though I can usually predict the outcome of most of the books that I read, I couldn't predict this one. I would think that one thing was going to happen and then something else happened that changed things entirely. The Love Market was a very enjoyable read for me.
Celine was an entirely likable character and I appreciated that she was not without her flaws. She seemed to not know what she wanted out of life and out of love, which was understandable since she was freshly divorced. The fact that she seemed so vulnerable allowed some very real emotions to be conveyed through the story. I also enjoyed the stories involving her clients that were woven throughout. They brought something extra to the overall story.
Mason writes beautifully. Her words flow through the pages making The Love Market a thoughtful read, and one that I really enjoyed.
