Author Biography

Anastasia Alexander doesn’t have the answers to life’s love questions. What she does know is that love in the 21st Century is complex. There are no easy answers, and there is a lot of richness and juiciness in exploring all the complexity that love brings.
Her credentials are two failed marriages, equaling twenty-three years of marriage and a willingness to believe that maybe a third one will be her lucky number. Or she might decide to compete with Elizabeth Taylor for who can get married the most times. It is yet to be determined which option she’s going to go for, but until then she pours her passion and sarcasm for relationships into her stories.

In Tangles of the Heart by Anastasia Alexander, Darlene Britain has dreams of love, adventure, saving the environment, and one day untangling her boyfriend, Austin Chambers, from his clingy, drama queen of a mother so they can finally begin building a life together. When Austin drops a bombshell with his decision to take a job offer in Tucson, Arizona, Darlene is thrown completely off balance, creating a brew of confusion, anxiety, and disappointment. Asking her to come along means shelving the plans they made for the future, crushing Darlene’s hopes, and shaking her faith in the relationship. What’s a girl to do? But things are about to get even more confusing when she meets the handsome and romantic race car driver, Cactus Ronnie, making her heart question everything she thought she knew about life and love.

Tangles of the Heart is a delightfully charming story that many readers will surely relate to. As we all know, things aren’t always easy when it comes to matters of the heart and the choices one must make regarding them. I found Darlene, the main character, to be smart, funny, relatable, and full of life. The book is extremely well written, descriptive, and the romantic parts were tasteful and beautiful. A quick and easy read, this sweet, romantic story made me smile the whole way through. The book is just long enough to tell the story and leave the reader feeling warm all over as they turn the last page. My only wish is that it had been just a bit longer. A well-deserved five stars!
