The Rose Petal Beach by Dorothy Koomson

The Rose Petal Beach

Dorothy Koomson is another one of my favorite authors. I especially like her book “The Cupid Effect” which is her first book but not the most famous one. It gives me hope that there really be someone out there who will love me for who I am, quirks and all.  

I bought “The Rose Petal Beach” because the name sounds so romantic. The legend of the rose petal beach is indeed very touching. This women went to a deserted island to look for her lover who went missing. As she walked on the beach, her bare feet were cut by the rocks and every drop of blood turned into rose petals till the whole beach was covered with red rose petals. 

I like the legend, but sadly, I didn’t quite like the story itself. I find it a little too slow and the climax is more like an anti-climax.
