Thank you to Morningstar at Diverse Reader for a ‘random review’ of Heloise West’s novel ARDENT.
The writing was beautiful and vivid. The characters were well fleshed out with their story told with detail bringing to life the world at that time and their struggle in it. It was suspenseful but well balanced with the love story of Morello and Benedetto.
This is all music to our ears, and we certainly agree that Heloise has a talent for balancing a mystery plot with a romance, and both of them terrific stories, too.
I also particularly loved Morningstar’s observation that Morello was authentic, fresh, and sweet. Mmm … so true!
