A Review of The Tulip Kiss

TITLE:   The Tulip Kiss

AUTHOR:   Elysabeth Eldering

GENRE:   A paranormal romance

PUBLISHED:   December 2011

COVER ARTIST:   Heather C. Paye

BOOK DESCRIPTION - A bittersweet tale of love, loss, and hope and how meaningful a simple flower can be.  And a reminder to never, ever leave an argument hanging between two hearts.  Find out how Amanda's world comes crashing down on that fateful day and how she is reminded of the tulips she loves when she receives her very own Tulip Kiss.

MY REVIEW - The Tulip Kiss is a short story about newlyweds, Amanda and Brock, who have been married for about six months.  This particular day starts out with an argument over a house but, due to unforeseen events, ends in being a day that forever changes both their lives.

Being a hopeless romantic, I found myself reaching for the tissues as I was drawn into this tale of love, regrets, loss and of wondering what the future might hold.  Although The Tulip Kiss is a quick read, you will remember it long after you have finished reading it.

I enjoyed reading The Tulip Kiss and look forward to reading more of Elysabeth Eldering's work.  

* SPECIAL NOTE * - Elysabeth Eldering will be offering her short story, The Proposal, for free for Kindle only.  It will be available for free on Saturday, March 31st and Sunday, April 1st.  This is the only time this story will be offered for free, so this would be the perfect opportunity to read something by this author.

This sounds like a lovely story. I'm a hopeless romantic and enjoy reading books like this. Gorgeous cover too. I have a couple of Elysabeth's books on my iPad and if I ever catch up I'm looking forward to reading them. :)

Hi Beverly. Thanks for stopping by. That is a beautiful cover. Heather did a really nice job on it.

Sounds like a nice book. If I ever read it, I'll have to remember to have a box of tissues next to me!

Susanne, thank you for the wonderful review. I'm glad you enjoyed and I never thought of the lasting impression it has on my readers, although I know it has had a lasting impression on me.

Beverly, I know what you mean about getting caught up - I've been downloading a ton of books on my kindle lately and haven't even turned it on in over 2 weeks. I don't have a clue what all is waiting for me any more. I hope you enjoy everything you have downloaded when you get to reading them.

Sherry, it's a short story so you won't need a whole box of tissues but maybe a couple of them.

I have to agree about the cover as compared to the one when the story was first published, Heather's is so much more beautiful. It really says it's a winter themed story. Heather does a great job on my covers and I can't wait to see what she does with the rest of the short stories I have coming out plus my one novel I'm working on (need to do a lot of research before I can really write the story).

Thanks for stopping by. See you all in the postings - E :)
