THE LAND OF MILK AND HONEY BY NELL E. S. DOUGLAS | REVIEW & GIVEAWAY


In the Land of Milk and Honey
Nell E.S. Douglas
Publication date: January 17th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

When Gabrielle “Bree” Valentine awoke in a hospital bed with a newborn baby, she centered herself and rebuilt. Bree didn’t think about her mental breakdown, lost memories, or the features of a stranger emerging daily in the face of the son she is raising alone. Five years later, on a weekend in the Hamptons, a chance encounter with a man unlike any other jars her—bone deep. Daniel Hawthorne Baird II; wealthy, dangerous, British aristocrat, gravitates to Bree like caviar on crostini. In his relentless obsession with Bree, their lives entwine despite Bree’s resistance. With the unconditional support of friends she calls ‘family’, Bree confronts the most difficult questions of her life. Unearthing the painful mysteries behind who fathered her child, who the real Daniel Baird is, and the irrepressible desire driving her towards a man destined to be the end of them both.

DISCLAIMER: I RECEIVED AN ARC OF THIS BOOK, VIA XPRESSO BOOK TOURS, FOR MY PARTICIPATION IN A BLOG TOUR. THIS IS MY HONEST, VOLUNTARY REVIEW.

I was very excited when I read the premise of this book. I'm not thoroughly invested in suspense storylines, but I found this one to be a major exception. It's a hook-line-sinker kind of read. There were some moments where I just wanted to hide under my blanket. But for me, that is a sign of good writing. If an author can make the reader feel that way, it's good writing.
Douglas is a new author to me. I wish I'd seen her name sooner. But you can't always know right?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nell E. S. Douglas has possessed a deep, abiding love for written words since childhood. The transition from reader, to writer, was a natural one. Her first stories, penned on the lined pages of class notebooks, were inspired by her mother’s poetry and epic tales of travel, and a professorial inquisitiveness inherited from her father. Following college in Florida, Nell exited the world of pure imagination, and entered the one of business, successfully establishing a career in sales, and developing a cup-a-day habit (of coffee). Today, Nell writes everything from story ideas to essays during the spaces in-between domestic goddessing, and contributing as a managing partner to a thriving small business. Nell resides in Florida, with her husband and their children, passing on the traditions of her mother, and sinking her feet in the sand whenever possible.
Her favorite books are Pride and Prejudice, and To Kill a Mockingbird. Her favorite movies are Gladiator, anything by Scorcese, The Time Traveller’s Wife, and Bridesmaids.
