Tour + Excerpt, Giveaway, and Review: Interwoven by Michelle Montebello

by Michelle Montebello


GENRE: Contemporary Romance

Belle Hamilton is a romantic at heart. She's engaged to the love of her life and dreams of marriage,
children and a happily ever after. Belle’s world is close to perfect until one afternoon she makes a
decision she can't take back.

In the blink of an eye, Belle’s life spirals out of control. She loses everything that is dear to her and is
forced to flee to the other side of the world where she meets Andrea, a local bartender from Rome,
and develops an unexpected connection with him.

Can they break through the complications of past hurts and a long-distance relationship to make it
work or will one terrifying night in Paris end it before it had a chance to begin?


4 stars

This book was unlike anything that I have read this year. It was emotional and touching, and the story tugged at my heart and my attention. Which made it a very quick read, and left me wishing that it had been much longer than how short it had been.

Belle was a very well-written character, who I found to be very relatable. Her story and experiences were believable, and it made it easy for me to connect with her. Belle is a romantic at heart, and she does have a romantic interest in the novel, Andrea.

But what I loved most about this book is that I felt there was more to it than just it being a romantic contemporary. There was more of a takehome message about moving forward in life, and not letting the past hold on.

I would highly recommend this novel. I absolutely loved it, and I cannot wait to read more by Michelle Montebello.



Paris, France

She looked around for him but he was no longer beside her. The smell of gunfire was acrid in the air.
Everything moved in slow motion—shots darted past her ears, plates shattered on tables, bodies fell
against her. She heard the torturous moans of the injured and saw the eerie stillness of the dead.

She searched for him amidst the carnage. She needed to hold his hand, to feel him beside her; to
reassure her again that they would be okay. She saw him lying motionless on the floor beside a chair,
his eyes closed, deathly still. Belle dropped to the ground with a heartbreaking sob as blood pooled
around his head. She saw the wound above his right eye. Small, round, perfectly fatal.

Her ears filled with the sound of her screams. She pulled him to her and cradled his head in her lap.
She didn’t know how long she sat there with the gaping injury to his head staining her jeans. She sat
there until she felt the barrel of a shotgun press against her head.
