From Thailand with Love is part of a series of interconnected romantic comedies but can be read as astandalone novel as all the other books in the First Comes Love series.
The Review: There is nothing better than when you begin a book and are immediately reminded of the book preceding it in the same series. Not only that, but you remember the characters and are all in, ready for the off!! So I was here, and was happy to get to know a new character for me (I haven’t read the whole series so I can’t say whether she was in the earlier ones), the sparky Winter Knowles.
We also meet Logan, and I loved how she knew him, setting us up for a great love/hate relationship. This book is all about the setting, as our group set off to find the lost city of gold. The details put me right beside them, following them all around, loving some characters, worrying about others. Indiana Jones is mentioned, but in a weird way this book also reminded me of films such as Jewel of the Nile, with some sassy retorts being thrown backward and forward, enjoyable comedy and romance and excellent settings and adventure. Very enjoyable with an ending that totally ticked all the boxes for me! Thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for letting me be part of the blog tour.
