The good: Windswept Hearts does follow the typical romance formula of woman meets man, man and woman clash at first, but the humor the author includes in her character's meetings moves you beyond the introductions and straight into the story swiftly and without effort.

The characters themselves are an interesting bunch with diversity and flaws that make them seem more real. I had no trouble identifying with the main character. The things she thought, said and did many times were things I find my The good: Windswept Hearts does follow the typical romance formula of woman meets man, man and woman clash at first, but the humor the author includes in her character's meetings moves you beyond the introductions and straight into the story swiftly and without effort.
The things she thought, said and did many times were things I find myself doing. I liked that the author didn't choose to make her main female character perfect. I hate perfect characters and never feel close to them. Both the male and female lead characters in this book have things that hold them back from one another and make it exciting to read.
You just aren't ever sure exactly if things are going to turn out as you expect them to. The even better: The descriptions Robynn Gabel uses throughout her book give you a real sense of being there. You can see the town, the house she is in and even the expressions on the character's faces.
I never felt while reading this like I had to guess where the activity was taking place. This author has an excellent way with showing emotion through the actions and reactions of her characters without having to return to the basic 'and then she cried' or 'she smiled' a million times. This is something that I see overused in a lot of books, and I was impressed that Robynn found ways around that type of redundant word usage.
The Best: This plot is not as simple as it first seems. There are other things going on besides just the romance angle between the two main characters. There is a bit of mystery, some suspense and well written and believable side stories that tie together to form an enjoyable reading experience. The hmmm: Thankfully, there isn't much in this book that I didn't love, but if I was pressed to choose something that could be improved, I would say it would be that the dialogue between Anna and the secondary characters other than Steve felt a bit labored.
I do understand that the two main characters require the most spotlight and development, but the other conversations in the book felt a little lacking in some places. Overall, this is a book I would recommend to any romance lover. There is a nice amount of love, romance, bonding, friendship and spice in this novel. I look forward to seeing what this author comes up with after this. A very good debut. Mar 22, LAWonder10 rated it it was amazing. Can one believe this is a first novel of an author?

Although the story was somewhat predictable, it was written very well and had enough twists and adventure to captivate the reader's attention Each chapter left one eager to leap into the next! This was a good example of life - with its dangers, grief, heartaches, schemes, adventure, trials, joys, fears, and changes. The title reinforcement is made clear a couple of times in the tale so is a good fit. The book cover emphasizes the key points and is eye-catching as well. It is safe for parents to allow their YA to read. My review of this novel gives it a Five Stars rating. This book was sent to me for an honest review, of which I have given.
