In Order Words is the first novel in the Boothbay Harbor series by Pamela Q. Fernandes. This is my first novel by this author.

Trish is a pianist who has been betrayed by her boyfriend of three years.

The woman he is with now is also her manager.
Trish has her own personal issues to come to terms with including her own bitterness from bad relationship choices and her being adopted from Korea.

When she moves into a new home, can she find love again when she meets her neighbor and chef Micheal Quentin.

This novel really made me feel for Trish and her overcoming her own issues. I wanted her to find herself and feel love again.

I don’t want to give too much away.

I suggest reading this for someone looking for something different to read.

Four Stars

Being a person with no instrumental talents I love listening to people pay what’s in their heart. Passion is a great motivator. It gives that person a fire inside to keep going and never backing down. Trish is trying to heal after her boyfriend cheats. Some people don’t think you should dwell on the pain. But it’s so much better for you in the long run to face it now. Get all the ugly cries out so that the next time that person name is said you feel nothing. I really like Michael. His character was almost perfect. Which is perfect no girl what’s a perfect guy. Just a guy that’s perfect for her. The author gave the characters a great start and the story progressed without a problem. There are many parts of this book that will make you wish you were a millionaire so that you could really do some good. This is definitely a book meant to pull on your heartstrings.

This was a very emotional read. Trish, who is looking for love and to be loved can’t seem to find it no matter how hard she tries. She is adopted and certain things she experienced growing up has shaped her need to belong. As a child she spent time with a neighbor who taught her to play the piano and she became a very good pianist and that became her chosen profession.  Michael who has his own issues from his childhood and that’s the reason he says he will never fall in love and do the family thing. He is passionate about his career as a chef and building his b&b. These two become unlikely friends, but they say opposites attract. Will these two be able to get past their issues and find love? This is a must read if you want to find out. I look forward to what the next book in this series will bring. I recommend this book.

The Other Words (Boothbay Harbor Book 1) By Pamela Q. Fernandes

What a great book, Pamela Fernandes has really captured how to draw someone into a book. This book had my emotions everywhere and had me turning the pages to see what was next. This book sheds light on adopted children and how they feel after a biological child has been born, sadly it also talks about how Trish was bullied because her adoptive parents were White and she was Korean. Great writing style and easy to read the story that tugs at your heartstrings. I look forward to reading more by Pamela Fernandes

In Other Words is the first book in the Boothbay Harbor Series by Pamela Fernandes. Fernandes has a great eye when it comes to details in her stories. I could imagine where she has the setting for her book. She also paints a beautiful picture of her characters. I have to say that this story was a roller coaster ride of emotions for me.Trish has been betrayed by her boyfriend that is now dating her book. It is not like Trish did not already have issues from her childhood being adopted from Korea. She has made some bad decisions with her love life. Will Trish get over her ex-boyfriend? Can Trish move on with her new neighbor who is the local chef on the island? Only time will tell.

5 of 5 Stars
Pianist Trish Holt, lives in Maine in picturesque Boothbay Harbor. Trish was adopted from Korea as a child and still suffers with abandonment issues and finds it stressful trying to fit into the ‘All American’ stereotype. Following the betrayal of both her long term partner and her manger, who she discovers are having an affair, Trish’s old issues surface and she blames her self for not being the perfect ‘All American’ girlfriend. Moving to a new house still feeling bitter but wanting to move on Trish meets new neighbour and potential love interest Michael Quentin, a local chef who’s restaurant she plays a gig at. Although Michael ‘romances’ Trish he has his own childhood issues and a dark family past which his holding him back. Michael is also helping his widowed sister to bring up his niece Hannah and is not particularly looking for a long term relationship where else Trish is looking for love and commitment.
This was a really emotional read and a romance which was a case of opposites attract. The author transports you into the lives of her characters and by giving them such a detailed backstory you really feel as though you know them personally. Trish and Michael are both interesting characters and very relatable and realistic, both with good points and bad. As I was reading I felt I was invested in their story and couldn’t stop turning the pages until I found out their future.
This is the first in a new series of books by Pamela Q Fernandes and I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

In Other words, is a sweet romance book by Pamela Fernandez. Trish Holt, a pianist is dealing with the demons of her past. Being from a Korean origin and adopted by Irish parents, she was subject to neglect and partial treatment since childhood. Her recent breakup from her three-year-old relationship puts her self-esteem to all time low. She feels unwanted and neglected by everyone around her. Her only solace is her music and singing to the tunes on her piano. When she moves to a new home in a quaint picturesque town of Maine, she finds herself falling in love with her neighbor, Michael Quentin, who is the local chef and a successful businessman. Michael also has had a wounded childhood and struggles with his own issues. The two try to find comfort with each other, but the blockages from the past keep surfacing between them repeatedly, making their relationship rocky and uncertain.

If and how they overcome these blockages form the crux of this sweet story. The plot by itself is a typical romance story, but I loved the way the author brought about the tender emotions of her main leads, right from their childhood. The effect of a bad childhood on a person and the impact it has in shaping his/her life is very subtly brought out. When parents either adopt or give birth to a child, they need to take care of the tender emotions of the little one on whom they have staked their claim upon. Any rash decision made by a parent impacts the child heavily, and that is something most adults do not understand. The story brilliantly portrays the struggle which both Trish and Michael go through, it makes them more conscious of their choices and they become responsible adults. They both have successful careers and appear to be well rounded individuals. But somewhere deep within, they are so insecure and unsure about themselves, that it sabotages them within, the closest bonds which they value and treasure are put through peril.

Very nicely written, the book is a fast paced breezy read. I sure will pick up more from this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved every bit of reading this book cover to cover. The story is compelling to read and a joy to observe. I’m a sucker for a love story that develops in the way that this one does. In this story, we meet pianist Trish Holt who resides in Maine on Boothbay Harbor. Stunned and blindsided by a cold kind of betrayal, her boyfriend of 3 years left. Ex’s new beau is her manager. Trish reflects that she’s had a bitterness which has stemmed a pattern of bitterness in past relationships.
From being adopted as a child from Korea, she’s becoming responsible for the breakdown of her relationships as she tries to fit into American culture with false stereotypes of the “picture perfect girlfriend.”
Upon moving into a new home for a fresh start, she meets Michael Quentin, local chef and neighbor, who romances and heals her. Michael and Trish fall in love but heal childhood wounds. This is the type of love story you root for from the very beginning. Trish attempts to return Michael’s generosity by helping him heal his family’s dark past. The two fall in love in a traditional and deep-rooted morals to coexist in a new modern love story.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Other Words (A boothbay Harbor series book 1) by Pamela Q Fernandez is a 4 star read.
Trish Holt was adopted from Korea by a white American family and suffered bullying over the differences between her and her parents, her parents had a biological son when she was 6 and she saw that she was treated differently by her parents too, a neighbour taught her to play the piano when she was young and she grew to do it for living. When her boyfriend of three years suddenly tells her he’s ending the relationship as he was having an affair with her manager, Trish is devastated all she’s ever wanted was to be loved and have a family and she now sees that slipping through her fingers.
Michael Quentin is the oldest of 5 siblings and spent his youth taking care of them when his father killed himself and his mother drowned her sorrows in alcohol, training to be a chef he moves back to Boothbay harbor and opens a restaurant and is working on a B&B, he doesn’t do relationships and blames this on his own parents marriage, when his sister’s husband dies he steps in to care for his sister and niece.
Can two people with less than perfect childhoods come together and be happy?
I enjoyed this story, the two main characters were complete opposites but you could see how well they would fit together.
