4 feather #bookreview of ABOUT HANA by KT Bowes



The new head of English has caused a stir but only seems to have eyes for young widow, Hana Johal. She’s not in the market for a relationship, but when a gang targets her property and then attacks her, she needs a hero.
Logan Du Rose might be gorgeous and a gifted teacher but he is more than that. He is a Maori leader by birthright and has a hidden life that only the very select know about. He doesn’t just want to solve Hana’s problems, he intends to claim her heart. Everything depends on it because it’s all about Hana.
This is the first part of a serial and is followed by Hana Du Rose and Du Rose Legacy.

My Review:

This is a story I had a hard time getting into.  Part of the problem was I didn’t have the time to read the book at my normal reading pace.  So, it took me over a month to read it, making it seem like it took forever.  Even with that consideration, this was still a slow, paced book.  I felt there were a lot of unnecessary scenes.  But once I was finished, while I was reflecting on my review, it dawned on me how much Hana, Logan, Pete, Bodie and the other characters had slowly crept into my mind.  I had come to think of them as friends, and now I want to know more.  What are Logan’s dark secrets?  Who and why is Hana being pursued?  What about the child that looks so much like Vik and Bodie? 
KT Bowes has a knack for turning an ordinary event into something extraordinary.  Like shopping for a bed. This is probably my favorite scene, other than when Hana went horseback riding.   And this is where I felt the story had a tendency to be long and drawn out. But those special little scenes like this, and the closet, also underlined Hana’s character flaws.  How she finally realized she had to drag herself out of the non-existent, safe little world she had been content living in after the death of her husband.  But once I relaxed, and just let the story flow over me, I really enjoyed it.  So, grab a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy the world that Ms. Bowes has created for your reading pleasure.  I give this story 4 feathers.

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down. About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done. So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made. One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors. Anyway, enough about me.
