Chris was my classmate in Author Mina Esguerra's romance class. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish my own novel. One of the reasons why I reviewed this book is to show support, but the Summary of this book got into me. I wanted to read light, and based on the sunmary, it's the perfect beach book.
The story was situated in one of my favorite places in the Philippines, Boracay. Chris was able to describe it in a way that it brought me back to my experiences in the Island. I remembered strolling along the beach from Stations 1-3, going to D'Mall with my then suitor, now boyfriend to buy Coffee then stargazing while sitting on the sand and hearing only the crash of the waves. I also learned things which I think I'd do the next time I visit like waiting for the Sun to set while in a bangka in the middle of the sea. I'm not sure about the Calamansi muffins though, but I'd try if ever I see one. I also loved that the story step by step made it's progress,and in the end, it really ended with a Grand gesture.
Works in a Museum, their Family that is. Worrier. Boring. Got a swimmer's bod. Very humble, which actually made me like him.
A Korean actress who went to the Philippines due to a scandal back in her country. Bubbly person. And for me, the most common thing she has with Gio is er humility. Not only does she act, she's very good at drawing too.
I really am proud of Chris, with regard to this novel. It made me feel happy that she decided to write something that would showcase the beauty of our Country. This book, I highy recommend.
