Knowing Vera Book Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I have a really good romantic book to share with you called Knowing Vera written by Rachelle Ayala.
Vera's dating Zach, casually, not committed, when she discovers her long-departed father is the killer of Zach's mother many years ago.  
Meanwhile, Zach reevaluates his life after losing his leg in a tragic accident and realizes he's falling in love with Vera.  
Can their timing be so wrong? Vera knows the relationship is doomed, but she cannot resist the tugging of her heart and Zach's panty-melting grin.  
Caught in a web of family secrets and hidden agendas, Vera and Zach must depend on each other for survival. A dangerous killer is on the loose, and Vera must find the truth, wherever it leads, even if it destroys her chance for love forever.  
Knowing Vera is a suspenseful, cross-cultural romance mixing an unsolved murder, adventure, and hot, steamy love scenes.
Poor Vera! She really doesn't have very good luck for most of the story and neither does her family or Zach.
I am surprised they even got together at all considering how they are tied to each thru the death of Zach's mother. Everyone thought that the killer was Vera's mother and so he had to go into hiding until the real killer is revealed.
Zach suffers another set back and Vera has to make a decision whether to stick by him or not.
This is a complex romantic story that proves love can survive even hard times and personal tragedies. It puts into perspective what people think are necessary versus what is not reality.
If you like a good romance story, then this one will quickly become one of your favorites. Yes, it has some tragedy in it, but most people do and still come out on the other side. It shows you what real love is capable of and what putting yourself second to the person you love is all about.
I should know, thru my own story, that most men that are in my husband's shoes, would have left long time ago but he says he still loves me and that he did not take his wedding vows in vane or that he promised to love me until death. I am so lucky that I have him and so I know how Zach must have felt when his world came tumbling down and how Vera stepping up to the plate saved them both.
You will definitely be rooting for the both of them before the story is finished.
Happy Reading!
