You ever read a book by an author, and you’re just so taken with the story, that you’re compelled to
stalk reach out to them and show them love? Yeah, that’s how I am with this lady right here. I affectionately refer to Mrs. M as “Auntie” because once you befriend her, she becomes fam yo. And she drops pearls every day on her Facebook wall. Antyway…Angelia is a serial writer. She has about umpteen of them (lol), but my fave so far is the Love’s Culture series.
I love this series for so many reasons, mainly though because she shows us that interracial love just isn’t black and white (literally and figuratively). Love’s Culture not only shows that love transcends race, but also culture, economic status, and religious beliefs as well. It’s not an in-your-face, preachy message, but wonderfully-written, episodic-like arcs that feature a myriad of colorful (again literally and figuratively lol) and eclectic characters.
The series’ main couple is Sadia and Mahad (one of my book boos by the way). Sadia is a single, Christian entrepreneur who owns a bookstore in Florida. She’s not looking for a man or love, but when Mahad, a Muslim businessman (and Saudi transplant), walks into her shop, it’s a wrap for both of them! The story, again, is told in episodes, so each book picks up where the last leaves off. It’s like reading a multicultural soap opera! There is a beautiful cast of supporting characters who are all connected t Sadia or Mahad in some way, and there’s never a shortage of drama.
If you have not read this series, I highly recommend it. Give book 1, Love’s Culture, a read, then scoop up the rest! There are four books so far, and I hope more are coming soon…
