Blaming the Wind

By Alessandra Harris

Genre: Women’s Fiction

Publisher: Red Adept Publishing

Sophia Douglas can’t shake the fear that she’s in over her head. A spontaneous elopement and a layoff from her high-paying job are stressful enough, but a plus sign on her pregnancy test sends her into a panic. Fearing her husband, Terrence, might leave like her father did, Sophia confides her insecurities to Tara, her friend and mom of three.

Though Tara Fisher encourages Sophia to trust Terrence, she’s hiding her own secret: a handsome attorney is pursuing her, and she’s questioning her commitment to Josh, her husband of ten years. After a devastating career-ending accident, Josh has changed and so have Tara’s feelings for him.

When a crisis arises that threatens to destroy Sophia and Terrence’s young marriage, Sophia must either overcome her fear of abandonment or lose everything she never knew she wanted. Meanwhile, as Tara is torn between responsibility and passion, her imperfectly put together life starts to unravel, and ghosts from her past resurface to haunt her.

As these two couples grapple with secrets, temptation, and illness, only time will tell if their vows are strong enough to hold them together.

Review

Tara and Sophia are good friends with different sets of problems. Sophia is out of work, pregnant and afraid to tell her husband.  Tara is no longer in love with her husband and is considering and affair with a hot attorney.  

This is a great story and is really entertaining. I enjoyed Tara and Sophia. With all the plot twists and dramas, it was really hard to put down.. I loved the creativity and the way the story flowed.  

However, the conversation is a little stilted in places. This does not take away from the story.  When I finished this novel, I had a hard time letting go of the characters. 

A wonderful debut novel. I look forward to her next book! 

I received this novel from the author for a honest review.
