Michelle Major, authoress. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
In her third book, A Brevia Beginning, Ms. Major continues the story of the Callahan family. If you’re an avid reader, it’s hard to inhabit someone’s world for a short time, never to return. I like being able to return to a family circle and read each person’s love story. That’s one to love Ms. Major’s work. I very much look forward to reading more from her!
In each of her stories, each character is very unique. You don’t have to worry about mixing up or confusing yourself with who each male or female is. No, you haven’t encountered them before in any of her writings. And each character is very real, with their own personal problems and hurdles to overcome, creating that literary ideal: a character with a complete arc of development. They’re not cardboard cutouts with a flaw or two slapped onto them for appearance’s sake. Each one feels real, and you’re right in there with them, rooting for them to conquer those personal demons that stand in the way of their happiness. Yet another reason to love Ms. Major. Real characters you can really love.
So far, Ms. Major’s writing style has been clean and flawless. I have no problems with her delivery, nor with her narrative. It’s unencumbered with miscellaneous thoughts and expressions that might distract from a scene. It’s direct and unpretentious. I love it! I’ve read so many works that come with some sort of aspirations to greatness that really annoy you and make you want to just stop reading. I’ve come across writers with an affectation that makes you cringe every time they use it. Not so here. Her writing is something to be admired. I am thrilled to be able to write such a statement for someone I greatly respect. Kudos to Ms. Major on another praiseworthy offering.
Let’s stop at three; any more would be redundant. I think you get the gist. If you haven’t ready any of her works, READ THEM ALL! (Still the one, Her Accidental Engagement, and A Brevia Beginning.) You will NOT be disappointed.

I am a huge fan of continuity books and this one was a hit! I never expected Lexi to have her own story or that she had enough of a personality to support a book. Boy was I wrong, she proved to be a dynamic character who I fell in love with! I also didn't think I would like Scott, but the author created a character I fell in love with!
I absolutely recommend this story!
