A different kind of lovely is a romance fiction novel written about Mina and Neil. Mina is an aspiring dancer and lives in a cottage her grandmother left for her. Her ambition is to turn the cottage into a dance studio. Neil is grieving a terrible loss and wishes to buy Mina’s cottage as the property has sentimental value to him. Mina refuses to sell but allows Neil to stay temporarily as she sees how hurt and depressed he is. As fate has it, Mina’s dream becomes a farfetched idea and as she has to now come to terms with reality, Neil is there to help her.
This is a beautiful story about love and healing. One’s character’s body is broken and the other, his mind. Both find comfort and relief over their individual ordeals. The author’s style of writing is smooth and very eloquent in unfolding emotions and sentiments. The character development is outstanding. The story is appealing from the start and takes you on this journey of loss, self-discovery, and healing.
I believe the world setting was also done in a superb way. Places, feelings, surroundings, emotions, and everything is written in a way that you can visualize standing there as a third person, watching the story unfold. I think the author has great potential in writing similar style storylines.
I recommend this book to romance and fiction lovers.
