BLOG TOUR: Majestic Pearls by Katija O

Book: Majestic Pearls
Author: Katija O Genre: Contemporary Romance
Some believe in fate others not so ...
Who would think that a simple car accident could determine someone's destiny?
But when Mia Tandy meets Nicholas Devlin their world's are changed.
Falling in love should be simple, should be natural and joyous but, as they are from different world's,  there are many obstacles thrown in their way.
There is one thing that no one can control and that is undying love. Fate has brought these two together, and class is keeping them apart.
What they don't realize is  ... they are somehow connected.
One person holds the piece to this puzzle.
A secret from yesteryear and a certain string of pearls holds the key.  These secrets not only are the key to a old romance but a key to their destiny.

My Review 
This book was a pleasant surprise. What I thought was going to be a simple romance story where the girl is torn between two men, turned in to a story filled with mystery that will have you begging for answers. 
I love Mia. She is sweet, kind and just an all around decent person. You want her to have the very best and you need things to work out for her, because she deserves it. 
Nicholas was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Good looking with a devil may care attitude, he and Mia strike up a very unlikely friendship after he hits her car. Throughout their relationship, you see him change. But will he buck his family rules and obligations to pursue what he truly desires?
Dr. Xavier Young seems almost perfect for Mia. Brought up with similar backgrounds their relationship comes easy. But for me, there just didn't seem the spark that she had with Nick. Xavier seemed to be the safe choice. But he certainly wouldn't be a wrong one. This guy is a true gentleman. 
The supporting characters round out the cast, from the eccentric old neighbor-who I LOVE-, vengeful ex's and family secrets, Majestic Pearls is a must read for any lover of romantic suspense. 
A solid 4 star read for me and I cannot wait to see how things unfold in the next book, Binding Ties.  

Author Bio
Not to stray from the common Author clichĂ©, I loved to read as a child – I actually excelled in reading from a young age.  This was definitely to my advantage.  In saying that I only enjoyed reading “happily ever after stories.”
As I grew older my pleasures turned to “teen romance stories” with the obvious transition being heavy love stories and of course Jackie Collins’ novels.
Then due to relationship and work commitments my reading all but ceased until my children were at an age where I could steal and hour or two (which then became an hour or four). 
A few years ago I discovered the Twilight Saga, this kept my thoroughly entertained for years as I read and re-read numerous times… Enter 50 Shades.  I think the fact that these books were written by amateur writers stirred something inside of me.
A few years ago my dear mother passed away, I became really lost —books became my saviour.  They took me to a very special place … away from reality.   One night I had this dream, it was so vivid in my mind that when I awoke it was fresh and alive.  It just kept growing and growing and that’s when Majestic Pearls was born.  I've not looked back since.
Music is my passion, I love it! Though it needs to be genre’s from the fifties through to the eighties.  Everything I do is done to music from my writing through to my housework—it soothes my soul.
I also have full time duties with my husband (fourth child) and our family business and three sons which all keeps me on my toes, there’s never a dull moment around my house.
Living in the beautiful Melbourne Australia, we have an abundance of restaurants and cafĂ©’s which is my other passion … coffee dates with my wild and wacky high school friends … after thirty plus years we still catch up regularly and have a wild time.  All of these people and my large family form my circle … a circle that I love and are thankful to have.
