Today I'm reviewing a novel by the talented Rachael Renee Anderson. In Minor Adjustments she takes us Down Under for a family drama/love story that will have you engrossed in her great storytelling style and maybe wishing for a trip to Australia.
Here's a blurb about the book:
Chicago businessman and bachelor Devon Pierce doesn't want to be appointed guardian of Australian four-year-old Ryan Caldwell - but Ryan's solicitor, Stella Walker, won't take no for an answer. Little does Devon know that this "minor" adjustment will grant him a future he never expected to have. Told in a fast-paced, poignant, and witty style, Minor Adjustments will take you on a journey filled with humor, growth, romance, and love.
I'll admit that a straight romance is usually not on the top of my to-read pile because I like a little meat with my story. This is exactly the reason I enjoyed Minor Adjustments. Rachael develops her characters well with physical and emotional details that have them walking off the page. Her interactions with the cute, four-year-old Ryan were realistic and fun. I could tell she had definitely done her homework when it came to setting part of the story in Australia. I loved reading and learning little tidbits and nuances about the country and character of the people there. And the plot line was well-developed with some surprises that kept me thinking about this book and how things would turn out for Devon, Ryan, and Stella.
is sure to please with its clever dialogue and intriguing characters.
