Since I was a young reader, all I read was science fiction and fantasy. I didn't realize there was good writing in other genres. This contemporary romance is a perfect example of excellent writing. The plot, pacing, characters and everything else that goes into creating a captivating story that you won't want to close the book easily. Rachel's talent is far above average in creating action, scene-setting and dialogue. I felt like I knew the characters so intimately while reading the book. I award “Polish to Perfection” 4.9 stars, the score would have been higher except for a few spelling errors. The author has informed me that the errors have been corrected, your reading will be all the smoother.
