"Knowing Vera" Book Review...

...Remember the review I did of "Hidden Under Her Heart" by Rachelle Ayala? Well, Rachelle is becoming one of my favorite authors! I recently finished "Knowing Vera" and can't wait to start her new book. She has a way of letting you get to know the characters like they're your friends and making you feel like you're in the story as well.
Vera's dating Zach, casually, not committed, when she discovers her long-departed father is the killer of Zach's mother many years ago.

Meanwhile, Zach reevaluates his life after losing his leg in a tragic accident and realizes he's falling in love with Vera.

Can their timing be so wrong? Vera knows the relationship is doomed, but she cannot resist the tugging of her heart and Zach's panty-melting grin.

Caught in a web of family secrets and hidden agendas, Vera and Zach must depend on each other for survival. A dangerous killer is on the loose, and Vera must find the truth, wherever it leads, even if it destroys her chance for love forever.

Knowing Vera is a suspenseful, cross-cultural romance mixing an unsolved murder, adventure, and hot, steamy love scenes.

What a crazy book! Vera and Zach are friends of Maryanne and Lucas from "Hidden Under Her Heart." I love when stories continue on like that, but I wish I'd gotten to find out a little bit more about what happens with Maryanne and Lucas. I think this story isn't about them, but still I guess it's the nosiness in me!

The story starts a few months after Zach has lost his leg and Vera's stayed by his side. During his recovery time, Vera has discovered that Zach's mother was murdered by her father who died shortly there after. Once she finds out that he's not dead, the drama and excitement begins!

First off, Vera is a much braver girl than I am. She's put into these situations that she doesn't know who to trust. Throughout the story, I want to be her big sister and scream at her because she's putting herself in more danger! And Zach, sometimes...he's such a man! I can't believe Vera would run back to him, but such is love, right? This is definitely, can't put the book down, want to keep reading until I know what happens, have to finish right now books so grab get your copy today!

You can find out more about Rachelle's books on her website, blog, Facebook and Twitter. Happy reading!

*I was provided a free copy of this book to review, but all opinions are my own.
