CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
REVIEWER:  Brenda Larnell | RATING:  A
REVIEW: This fantastic offering begins in the 60’s in Detroit, Michigan. The hero, Henry Patterson, has migrated from Mississippi to the Big D seeking a better life for himself. The author, D Camille, not only reveals Henry’s Southern background, but she also presents a valuable history lesson that represents that time period. The heroine, Millie Gaines, is a native of Detroit and when she meets Henry, both their lives change dramatically. If you recall, we first meet Henry and Millie in the first book of the Black Land Series- The Lion. They are the grandparents of Tauri Patterson Shaw. This story gives the reader the backstory of how Henry and Millie came to be the sole guardians of Tauri, Detroit’s Prosecuting Attorney.

While
WHEN HENRY MET MILLIE is different in some aspects from the previous stories written by D Camille, the basic features that her readers love about her stories are present:
Romance - A sweet, memorable love story between a man and a woman with a HEA ending.
Social Consciousness - The plight of Blacks as they migrate to the North from the segregated South seeking a better life.
Black Love - The joy and pain of two people who are destined to be together in spite of social mores.
Unexpected Plot Twists - When you have that “didn’t see that coming moment”.
A Storyline That Leaves The Reader Wanting More - When you want to know the outcome of a certain character or who’s next in the series to merit their own story.

Speaking of wanting more, I wonder who the next
Fall Back In Love couple will be since this is Book 1. I have my own idea, but I’ll keep it to myself for now. I highly recommend this story of “love, tragedy, life and hope”. I know you will enjoy your journey back to the 60’s when Henry met Millie.
