Book Review: Her Loving Husband's Curse

     Today's review is on Her Loving Husband's Curse by Meredith Allard

Her Loving Husband's Curse is the second installment in Allard's Loving Husband series, and is just as much of a hit as the first. Written so eloquently, the reader cannot help but be pulled into the story and feel every emotion of the wonderful characters.

James and Sarah Wentworth are finally putting their lives back together after averting the discovery that James is a Vampire. But just because James' name was removed from Hempel's list didn't mean that Hempel was giving up. In fact, Hempel is back in book two with "evidence" that Vampires do in fact live among us, and he is ready to name names bringing fear back into their lives.

There is some happiness however during this trying time. After struggling with the decision whether or not to start a family, James and Sarah decide to adopt a child. But their joy in their new family is short lived.

When the Vampires come "out of the coffin", not everyone is pleased, and the fears and prejudices of anything different begin to resurface. No one seems to know what to do with the Vampires leaving James and Sarah to make difficult decisions that will affect their whole family.

Allard's use of historical events such as the Salem Witch Trials themselves, the Trail of Tears, the mention of the Japanese Internment Camps, along with mention of the Nazi Death Camps is a poignant reminder of how man has treated his fellow man through the ages because they were different. It also; at least in my case, leaves the reader questioning if we have in fact come very far in this respect at all, and I love Allard for using this book and this series to bring that into the forefront. We all need a reminder of where we've been in order to not let the atrocities of the past repeat themselves.

Her Loving Husband's Curse brought questions to my mind, love into my heart, and tears to my eyes. An exceptional read that will leave you begging for more.
