Sky Tinted Water - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Sky Tinted Water (Sky Tinted Water, #1)
by Keta Diablo

What is it about:
Familial bonds, malevolent schemes and passion collide in this sweet historical novel. Set in Minnesota during the Civil War and the Sioux uprising, this is the story of Rory Hudson, the exquisite Irish lass with an unbreakable spirit and the enigmatic Dawson Finch, a man bound by honor, duty and loyalty.

When Dawson enlists in the army to bring peace to nation divided, Rory’s world plummets into a tailspin. War, distance and time separate them, but nothing can dispel the haunting memories of their love. Not even death can destroy their fierce passion or a love so strong it beats the odds of the impossible.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
This is indeed as the cover promises: 'A Sweet Historical Romance'.

Sky Tinted Water gives a clear and intriguing view of life in a small settlement during the Civil War. There's happy moments, sad ones, love and loss.

I really liked the calm almost slow pacing of the story. Near the end of the book the pace picks up to lead to a suspenseful and action filled climax.

The romance between Rory and Dawson is of the 'love at first sight' kind and even though I'm usually a bit cynical about those kind of romances when they're not combined with 'lust at first sight' Diablo knows how to write it in a way that makes me go along with it. The scenes between Rory and Dawson are sweet and heartwarming.

All in all this is a very nice read and I'm curious about the next book to see what happens next to Rory, Dawson and their family and friends.

Why should you read it:
It's a sweet and enjoyable Historical Romance.
