Danielle’s Touch is ridiculously amazing! Lisa Alexander-Griffin definitely has “Blue Quill Powers” (yes, I just made that up!) because her writing pulls you into the novel and takes me on an unforgettable experience. No matter how much time passes, I will never forget my experience with Danielle’s Touch!
This title is one major emotional roller coaster ride! Lisa gets our hearts racing right out the gate when Ethan, the sexy cowboy, waltzes into Danielle’s decorating shop seeking a feminine touch for his old Victorian home. You can feel the burning attraction between Ethan and Danielle right away, and are filled with anticipation for the passionate romance you know will blossom in the novel.
But as quickly are you are filled with butterflies, Lisa gives us a third point of view – Danielle’s ex-husband, Alex Taylor. It takes no more than two sentences to get an idea of how demented, crazy, and mean Alex is, and by the end of the first chapter, it is evident that a huge fight is going to go down between these three characters. Danielle’s Touch has a pulse, a heartbeat. The pacing of the novel is at a perfect rhythm as the suspenseful scenes harmoniously balance out the romantic scenes.
I am also thrilled to read a novel that has three-dimensional characters! Ethan, Danielle, and Alex are so well-developed that they could be real people. By the end of the novel, you know each of their likes, dislikes, fears, favorite food, how they like to dress, what makes them angry, etc. The characters were executed to perfection and combined with the thrilling plot, Danielle’s Touch is a hands down winner!
I also wanted to note that while domestic abuse is a part of the plot in Danielle’s Touch, it never overshadows the romance between Danielle and Ethan. I really liked how Lisa handled this. She exposes this heinous crime in small bits and pieces throughout the book, but keeps her focus on Danielle’s strength to break free from a bad situation, the courage to open her heart again and love a man worthy of her time and affection. Lisa says everything she needs to say about domestic abuse without having to literally say it.
I absolutely recommend that you read Danielle’s Touch. This novel is more than words, it’s an experience!
