BLOG TOUR REVIEW: To Die Once by Miranda A. Uyeh

To Die Once by Miranda A. Uyeh

{About the Book}

Two men, one woman, a rosebush …

… a terrible past, an uncertain future

Jennifer, a woman unexpectedly trapped in a path of love and passion against everything she believes.

Rodrigo, a man set to get what he wants at the cost of what matters most.

Stefano, a man with a past, a story to tell and passion to offer.

Chidi, a friend in need, a friend indeed. Or not?

From a culture where good girls follow the norm and live as they’ve been told, Jennifer is no different from any other girl until by happenstance, she meets and falls in love with Rodrigo, a man who’s handsome, rich and foreign. Different. She has no idea who he is or what he does, and is swept into a world of romance and passion. It is not long before she discovers a shocking truth that shakes both her world and his.

Then he is gone.

Stefano shows up at a time when Jennifer has made up her mind about the rules of life. He thinks she’s beautiful and is in love with her. In a bid to convince her to give him a chance in her life, old memories once buried are brought to life. And the events that follow don’t leave anyone unaffected by the truth of the past that was left unsettled.

Meanwhile, Jennifer with her friend Chidi, find themselves on a self-discovery journey that has one of them raising questions.

Some just have to ask, where is God in all this?

… an inspirational romance, from Lagos to Italy.

{My Review}

3 Stars!

First off, I'm not a big fan of the cover. It's the same thing we see as the cover of most, if not all romance novels. The heroine on the cover. I hope to see more Cover Designers venturing out of this norm to try and do something different. 

Now on to the actual content inside this cover. To Die Once was a good read. There is mystery, intrigue, and of course a lot of romance. The romance was sweet, however, there was one scene that I personally felt was too much. A bit more spicy than I'd prefer in a inspirational romance novel. I liked all the characters. 

To Die Once I felt needs more plot and character development. I've been saying this a lot about debuts lately. But they are things that are very important. Overall, To Die Once was a nice read and perfect for fans of romance.
