The Diamond Rose: #bookreview

Boston resident Amanda Griffith had just graduated from medical school and beginning her residency. While on vacation, she and her friend, Lydia, were struck by a solar flare. The solar flare gave them both supernatural powers. Both women are flown to Prague from their beach vacation in Panama. Within 48 hours, Amanda and Lydia are inducted into a super secret supernatural society called The Committee as Sentinels.

Amanda puts her residency on hold while she is a Sentinel. She falls in love with this guy who everyone knows is bad news, like “Ted Bundy is my boyfriend” kind of news. The falling in love with a psycho and the use of pet names were the only things that I had a problem with in the book. Some people like pet names and psychopaths, I guess.

I know – smart women fall in love with psychopaths all of the time. Amanda knew he was a stalker and a killer before they were together. I would have rather seen her work on anything else, except getting sidetracked by love. I guess I enjoyed the paranormal aspects of this book more than the romance. Maybe I’m just at the point in life that I understand why TV characters have separate beds or bedrooms. Apparently, someone needs more paranormal romance and less snoring.

However, I am hoping that in the sequels that Amanda becomes empowered as a Sentinel and also as a human. It seemed like she might be headed in the direction of really learning about herself.

If you are a fan of paranormal romance and get swept away with sentimental feelings, then you might enjoy The Diamond Rose.

If you are a cynic who is against love or a realist against being obsessed with love, then maybe just wait for a paranormal novel with less romance.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
