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.
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.
