My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Congratulations Karina, on another book, and your first romance. Well done!
The reason for my 4 star rating of a 5 star book is after seeing your incredible support, beta and edit exams, it was sad for me to come across so many unnecessary grammatical errors. It feels like it was only run through a spell checker for the major spelling errors.
The story deserved so much more, as did your incredible humor. I started reading late at night, and had to physically smother my laughter into my pillow to try and not disturb the rest of the sleeping souls in the house. Mateo, Vera and the other Spanish people (and the Angles too) were created with so much life and spirit in them, I can actually visualize myself hopping on a plane to Spain to join the conversational English classes for business people, and have a glass of that wine!.
The story line is very sweet and follow a few relationships borne from the month long “language camp”, where everybody lives together, eats and parties for a month in Spain, in English.
It is with a sad heart that the language course comes to an end, but from here we follow to see if some new relationships would stand the test of time, or if Vera should have listened to the last bit of advice the reception lady gave her before boarding the buss when she arrived: “don’t fall in love…”
