One Pink Line by Dina Silver

WINNER of the 2012 Eric Hoffer da Vinci Eye Award for outstanding cover art!

Today's featured book is One Pink Line by Dina Silver. With a 4.7 star rating and 93 reviews, it is a must read! Here's the synopsis and a review from our sister site, The Kindle Book Review.

Can the love of a lifetime be forever changed by one pink line? Dina Silver's tender, absorbing novel, One Pink Line, is the warmhearted, wry story of love, loss and family, as seen through the prism of one singular, spirited young couple who find themselves in a predicament that changes the course of their lives, and those closest to them. With heart, humor and compassion, this debut work of women's fiction is certain to stir anyone who relishes a good laugh, can stand a good cry, and, above all believes in the redemptive power of love.

This unique, contemporary story gives readers a dual perspective. Sydney Shephard, a sweet-tempered, strong-natured college senior is young, in love with an exceptional man, and unexpectedly pregnant. Faced with a child she never planned for, she is forced to relay this news to her neurotic mother, relinquish her youth, and risk losing the love of her life. Then there's Grace, a daughter, who believed she was a product of this great love, grows to realize her existence is not what she assumed, and is left with profound and puzzling questions about who she really is.

Spanning generations and every imaginable emotion, One Pink Line reveals how two points of view can be dramatically at odds, and perhaps ultimately reconciled. Simultaneously deeply felt and lighthearted, One Pink Line deftly mines how the choices we make are able to alter so many lives, and how doing the right thing and living honestly can bring unexpected, hard-won happiness. It's a must-read for anyone who craves a great love story, absorbing characters, and plenty of laughs along the way.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
"This book is written well and carries you through with ease. As I read the story, I couldn't believe how much it matched a friend of mine from high school! The story isn't some crazy plot that you've never heard. Instead, it's something that many of us can relate to. First, it's set in the 80's and 90's. The author did a great job of taking the reader right back there. Second, it's a story of graduating, college, parties, and mistakes. Who can't relate to that? It left me reminiscent and wanting to call up that old friend. A great read!" Amber - The Kindle Book Review

"The skillful transitioning and Silver's clear, concise writing make for an engrossing read, as two stories unfold from two viewpoints and generations. One Pink Line is a delightful read, perfect for young adults and adults alike."IndieReader.com & USA Today

Kissed in Paris by Juliette Sobanet ~ 80 reviews/4.4 Stars!

Welcome to The Kindle Romance Review!
All of us at The Kindle Book Review family take great pride in discovering HOT new books that are getting rave reviews. Today's featured title is a perfect example of excellence in indie/small press publishing. Sign up by email to get all of our posts.

We'd like to introduce to you, Kissed in Paris, by Juliette Sobanet. This is book two in "Paris" series and it is getting great reviews! With 80 reviews, Kissed in Paris is holding a strong 4.4-star rating and it was only published in February of 2012. Great job Juliette!

You are in Paris, the City of Love. You must not be so controlled. Here, have another glass. I promise you, it will not hurt.”

When 29-year-old event planner Chloe Turner wakes up penniless and without a passport in the Plaza Athénée Hotel in Paris, she only has a few fleeting memories of Claude, the suave French man who convinced her to have that extra glass of wine before taking all of her possessions and slipping out the door. As the overly organized, go-to gal for her three drama queen younger sisters, her anxiety-ridden father, and her needy clients, Chloe is normally prepared for every disaster that comes her way. But with her wedding to her straight-laced, lawyer fiancé back in DC only days away and a French con-man on the loose with her engagement ring, this is one catastrophe she never could have planned for.

As Chloe tries to figure out a way home, she runs into an even bigger problem—the police are after her due to suspicious activity now tied to her bank account. Chloe's only hope at retrieving her passport and clearing her name lies in the hands of a rugged, undercover agent named Julien who has a few secrets of his own. As Chloe follows this mysterious, and—although she doesn't want to admit it—sexy French man on a wild chase through the sun-kissed countryside of France, she discovers a magical world she never knew existed and has to decide if the perfectly ordered life she’s built for herself back home is really what she wants after all.

Kissed in Paris is the second book I've read from Sobanet. And it did NOT disappoint. This book is a bit more action packed than the first, but that only added something a bit different to it. Kissed was packed with emotion. Sobanet had me laughing out loud, but she also had me in tears. Her easy voice and pacing made the book fly by. Chloe is loveable and Julien is mysterious..." ~ Rachel Kall

"I had just come off reading the Fifty Shades trilogy and wanted to read something light, fun and playful. Being set in Paris, one of my MOST fave places, Kissed In Paris was exactly what I needed! Super fun, easy to read and cute. I looked forward to climbing into bed with Chloe and Julien every night. This was the first book I have read by Juliette and I will be reading her others…" ~ Casie Piasecki

If you are looking for a humorous, light hearted and fast paced chick-lit, you'll definitely want to give Kissed in Paris and Sleeping With Paris a try. They're only $2.99!
