A Little Love - C. C. Medina

Here is an absolutely beautiful, poignant, compelling, and well-crafted love story set in Miami and revolving around 4 Latina women who are the best of friends: Isabel, Julia, Mercy, and Lucinda. The reader is given full access to the lives of these women. Four remarkable women who have striven to be successful in their careers, but have been unlucky in their quest for lasting love and happiness.

Once I was a few pages in reading "A LITTLE LOVE," I became thoroughly absorbed in it. So much so that I was that proverbial fly on the wall or certainly 'the fly buzzing about hither and thither', experiencing vicariously the highs and lows of these 4 women. I laughed, cried, and rejoiced watching the drama unfold. This is a novel that I could easily read again and again. It touched me in a thousand places and spoke powerfully to the romantic within me. Novels like these serve a useful purpose in reminding each of us that, though we are unique, nevertheless, we need and desire to love and be loved in return by that special someone who tickles our fancy, stimulates our minds, and thrills our hearts. People need people. Read "A LITTLE LOVE" today and lose yourself in it. You'll be glad that you did.
