LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Now that the sun and the good weather seem to be coming back, I am glad to speak about a new author in the agency, Diana Pardo, who arrives to our bookstores by the hand of Titania, with ABRIL DESCUBRE EL MAR Y LOS HELADOS DE FRESA in the romantic genre (in which she has already left her mark with her “trilogía del Sofa”). I devoured this novel in a weekend, because it’s addictive and because I always liked love stories, regardless of the format. This novel made me feel the butterflies in my stomach like at the beginning of a new relationship. One day, Abril, in her forties and with the full pack: married, with a child and bank debts, wakes up to hear her husband say he has accepted a new job in Miami where he has met a new dream with the name of a woman. Abril is in shock, but her best, wild friends, Maura and Susana, will help her overcome the pain after 20 years of marriage and will encourage her to fall back in love, even though Abril no longer believes in love or her appeal. That is why, when she meets Oscar, a wonderful and attractive personal coach, twelve years younger than her, she can’t even fathom someone like him falling for her, teaching her to live through gratitude and making her open her heart while awakening her high voltage sexual appetite. Even in her wildest dreams, Abril wouldn’t have imagined recovering love in capital letters with someone like Oscar. Even Pedro, her husband, will be gobsmacked once he realizes he made a mistake and expresses his wish to go back home. What will Abril do? Will she go for Oscar and this uncontrollable love, or will she forgive Pedro, who promises to bring back what they lost? A well-written, fresh and intense story which will make the fans of Elisabeth Benavent and Megan Maxwell fall in love. A perfect mix for lovers of love stories. It’s an ideal read to get ready for the summer.
