Book Review: It's Raining a special giveaway

By Sara Steven

On a dare, Faith Daniels tosses a coin into the infamous “Fountain of Love” and wishes for the perfect man, laughing it off as the dumbest thing she’s ever done. Like magic, her quiet life turns upside-down when men begin to appear out of nowhere, like zombies, but drop-dead gorgeous and without the odd limp. There’s a doctor, a lawyer, a firefighter, and a swimwear model, for starters. All of them are kind, generous, and successful. All of them are interested in Faith. But who is Mr. Right? (Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads)

It’s Raining Men is a romantic comedy, with a twist. A BIG twist. While I was reading about Faith and her experiences, particularly with one of the eligible bachelors in question, I thought about how entirely unconventional their relationship could be. It made for an interesting angle that not only added something unique, but it provided more of a risk for Faith. Falling in love could potentially lead to losing friendships, a major high stakes game for me.

I loved Faith’s story, and why she ever felt the need to toss a coin into the “Fountain of Love.” We get to see a lot of transition for her, given what she has been through over the last several years. While she holds onto a lot of who she is and what makes her special, at the same time she discovers different ways of coming out of her shell, mostly attributed to her best friends who have been with her through it all, and want the very best for her. It was fun to see her dealing with the various men who are interested in her and delve deeper into this second chance love story, but I enjoyed the close-knit relationships she has with her friends, too. 

Any good read needs to have an arch nemesis, and I need to mention Pam, Faith’s nemesis. We never really get the concrete reason behind why Pam is so evil and dislikes Faith as much as she does, but she sets out to be obnoxious, and I don’t know if I’ve eye-rolled more at any other character! It was equal parts wanting to see what would happen next and what Pam would do, and wanting to see how Faith would handle it or what sort of comeuppance would come from it. It was a nice balance from how wonderful Faith and her friends are, to how annoying Pam is. 

I’ve yet to read an Amooi novel and not love it. This is yet another five-star experience to add to my list!
