Binding Ties picks up right where the first book left off. Mia alone, Xavier and Nicolas both gone. Peter, her wonderful brother, helps her make her dreams come true and she opens up the cafe she always wanted to open. Things appear to be looking up for our Mia, and she truly does deserve to be happy. She’s probably one of the sweetest main characters I have ever read. She’s humble, down to Earth and frustratingly sweet.
Let’s not forget the secret. I actually loved this part of the story more than the romance, I know, I’m weird. There’s nothing better than a juicy family secret to intrigue this not so desperate housewife. You can’t ignore the love story either. The two subplots are so intertwined, that made the book. What could be a story of your average girl falling for the wealthy guy was given a lift with the family secret twist. It added an element of suspense that will keep you reading.
The characters are endearing. Rosie is by far, my favorite. I bet her story alone could be a book. Mia and Nicholas are two of the most stubborn main characters I have ever read. You really get a feel for the internal struggles both of them go through throughout the book. The author does a fantastic job putting you in their head.
Wonderful series with the right combination of romance and mystery. A solid 4 kisses
