Do you believe that dreams come true? Before you answer that, check out Jackie's experience.
Jackie is a woman who's not scared of trying out things that arouse her passion. This is one of the things that endeared her to Jerry. She can do anything to spark up electrifying and passionate moments with her husband. To add more spice to her marriage, she arranged a weekend getaway at an inn designed for couples. On the night of their arrival, they both had dreams. How will these dreams affect their future?
The Inn of Destiny by Gene P. Abel is an intensely romantic novel that shows how far a woman can go to satisfy her romantic desires. Though it's a generally accepted fact that sex drive declines with age, there are a few exceptions. For a handful of women, they hit the climax of desire for intimacy between their late thirties and early forties. In this story, Jackie is one of such exceptions to the rule. The author did well to build her character around this concept. This speaks volumes about the author's unique approach to putting this book together. This uniqueness is not only seen in character development, but the writing style also had its fair share of it. I commend Gene for her thoughtfulness.
It's not surprising to see romantic novels give vivid descriptions of sexual intercourse. However, a few books give only titbits of the action and leave out deeper details. This is one such books. If you're looking for a romantic book that goes into deep details of sex scenes, you will be disappointed. Though there were so many of these sex scenes, the details were left o the reader's imagination.
What I liked most about the book was how the author projected the theme of dreams and their manifestations. Whilst she was doing that, the theme of romance was not sidelined. In my opinion, the concept of dreams and how they affect the dreamer was the primary focus of this story. A greater part of this book was dedicated to this. This did impress me. Most romance books I've read focus on the romantic theme. But this book's uniqueness is such that romance was a secondary theme.
I liked the way the characters were developed. Though there weren't many characters in the book, every character stood out for themselves. There were no redundant characters. Each character's role was distinct and clear. It was also easy to pick out the main character of this book from the lot.
I would have given this book a perfect rating. However, I found so many grammatical and typographic errors in it. Therefore, I rate it 3 out of 4 stars. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance novels with minimal erotic descriptions.
