Destiny By Design: Michelli Family Ties by Sherry Crandell is an engaging love story where Trish Cooper meets someone who takes her back to her past, which she had closed and left a long time ago. She goes with her friend Tabitha to meet the latter's new boss and family, and Diego Michelli's startling green eyes and stubborn jaw line make Trish wonder what the man really is like behind his good looks. Trish is still hesitant to get close to Diego after her past experience, but will Diego be able to make her forget her past, and overcome her fears to draw her close to him? Will Trish be able to trust Diego?
I found the story entertaining with its well sketched characters. The main characters are real and convincing and will help readers connect with them on many levels. I liked the portrayal of Diego Michelli; rakish, roguish, attractive, and with a dangerous streak. Trish is likeable and relatable on a personal level. The scenes and descriptions are vivid and all the characters and moments come alive. Though the story has twists and turns, it will inspire and motivate readers to see how someone can change his life for the love of a woman. The author's fluid writing style makes it fast paced, and pulls readers into the Michelli family. All the twists, turns, secrets, and lies in the story keep readers glued to the book till the very last page.
