    Great read

    I am a fan of A.C. Arthur. Each plot line are page turners and I can not put the book down. So far I have read most of the books and am looking forward to some new ones.

    As we evolve from childhood to adulthood, we have a tendency to plan the life that we think we are going to want and have. It is not until the reality of life itself smacks you down that you begin to realize that you are just a participant in this game and that you really have no control over what tomorrow might bring. Unconditional is about a woman who has decided her life at a young age, only to discover that there are no plans set in stone. Abigail Swanson, goes from wanting to be a successful career woman with no husband and definitely no children, to experiencing jealousy because her sister has all of the things that she vowed to never have or want. i.e. kids, husband and the white picket fence. Dr. Mason Penney, the devastatingly handsome doctor, whose mild manner and confidence eases his way into Abigail¿s heart and bed. Mason sets out to have an affair with Abigail, that would last only until he returned to Boston. Somehow during this brief strictly physical affair, Mason and Abigail fall in love and all is wonderful, until Abigail discovers a lump. With the discovery of this lump, Abigail also discovers how important relationships and families are to a person going through this experience. She also discovers that with the right amount of love and support that you can get through anything, including cancer. Ms. Arthur does a superb job at transitioning you through the various stages and emotions that Abigail and her entire family deals with as she fights this awful disease. The characters in this novel are lively, comical and most of all real. People have a tendency to stay away from books about cancer and other diseases because they are generally felt to be morbid and sad. This novel was the exact opposite. I laughed and I cried but most of all I enjoyed. Kudo¿s Ms. Arthur for bringing your readers a story that was not only entertaining, but educational as well.

    Romance with a Twist

    Her sister's wedding has just made Abigail Swanson realize what's missing in her life, despite the excitement of recently realizing a lifelong dream of building her own design company. But a routine medical appointment may change the course of her life forever... Dr. Mason Penny has his own issues, including a meddling mother but can the two come together and find love unconditional? There were some problems with the plot. The story kind of meandered and had little punch. With so many characters and subplots, the main story often lacked focus. It took too long to care about the characters. In fact, I never really rooted for them as I should have. The conflict seemed contrived, just to meet the word count and often seemed as if it could have been straightened out with an honest conversation. The prose could've been tighter. There was a lack of description as well as character movement. The resolution was too unbelievable as were other aspects of the storyline. Overall 3 stars-average.
