(141)That's Amore by Wendy Markham

That's Amore 

Publication Date: June 30, 2004
Pages: 354

Daria Marshall has always had a bit of a wanderlust.  She has never really settled down in any one platce long enough to call it home.  She was last in Arizona crashing with a friend when her sister, Tammy, invited Daria to stay with her for a while in New York City.  Tammy and Daria are close like most sisters are, but they share something that most sisters don't, a psychic ability.  It is on New Years Eve when Daria meets Ralphie, a nice man who is very recently out of an engagement. Not only is Ralphie nursing what should be a broken heart, he is mourning the recent loss of his father. Daria and Ralphie strike up a friendship after Daria mistakenly leaves her iPod behind, plus she has a developed a great fondness for Ralphie's late father.  Will they be able to put their issues behind them and find happiness?  Or will Daria's wanderlust carry her away from New York City and the man she has come to love?

So first things first, did you know that Wendy Markham is a pen name for Wendy Corsi Staub?  I did not!  I have several books by Wendy Corsi Staub, but admittedly have not read one yet.  I do know that they are a completely different genre than what Wendy Markham is known for writing.   That's Amore  was a sweet novel about two people trying to find love.  I enjoyed Daria, even though there were a few times that her hesitation frustrated me.  I also enjoyed Ralphie, his down to earth qualities with his family loyalty makes him a great guy for any woman, especially Daria.

Bottom line, That's Amore  is a sweet  paranormal romance. Even though it was a bit predictable at times the characters are unique enough to make it worth the read.  Let me know what you think!


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
