Marisa De Los Santos
Rating: 5 out of 5
Marisa De Los Santos is my hero.
Her debut novel, Love Walked In, is the best book I've read this year. It made me laugh, cry, and shout with rage. There was so many times I had to put this book down and just look at the front and back covers asking myself, "Who is this woman that wrote this great book?"
Love Walked In is about Cornelia Brown, a woman who is funny, smart, a hopeless romantic, and the friend every girl needs. She meets Clare Hobbs a young girl who abandoned by her mother, is now trying to fit into her father's life while not getting crushed by the hope of her mother returning.
It's love at first sight between the two as Cornelia opens her heart and her home to Clare. They develop a friendship and a love that helps them both grow. This book is a testimony to the love between friends, families, and those you meet while you're out living your life.
My favorite character is Cornelia. I absolutely love her. She's passionate about her family, friends, and classic movies. Sarah Jessica Parker might end up playing Cornelia in the film version. I think the casting director needs to be fired but that's just my opinion. Love Walked In will have you hooked from beginning to end.
