There is an originality to Diane Rinella’s work that is not only refreshing, but utterly fascinating. She somehow manages to charm her readers while at the same time enticing them to think … and feel. That’s not an easy feat. If you want an entertaining read that also allows you to tap into your own emotions, then Diane’s work is for you.

Diane’s latest release is

*Something To Dream On.”



If a painting in the home of your perfect man reflects your dreams of doom, do you run, or do you dare to embrace love? While Lizetta lives a life of compassion, childhood bullying over a few extra pounds have caused this sparky woman to lose sight of the beauty of her soul. Jensen’s recent past is filled with substance abuse, shady morals, and loose women. A brutal wake up call forced him to find his way back to the gentle soul he once was; however, there are some whose futures depend on the return of the demon. Souls can heal, but how long can they fight the forces that seek to destroy them? If one of those forces is the person who shattered your self-image, and she is determined to take down the one you love, could you still believe that everyone deserves a second chance?


I enjoyed every page of this book, and was sorry to see it end. Frankly,The story is completely fantastical, yet it quickly hooked me and became real., as did the characters. I’ve been pondering how Ms. Rinella achieved that, and can only conclude she is not only a master of dialogue, but that the characters all possess a part of her – a piece of her heart? – which she passes on to her readers. Exactly how she does that is a wonderful mystery. Most of us would blithely agree that the universe does indeed work in mysterious ways. However, the concepts that we are all the sum of our experiences, as well as being responsible for all our choices,whether they are made consciously or unconsciously., can be uncomfortable to contemplate, as well as difficult to fully accept, and act on. Yet, this story successfully tackles these ideas, providing us with an entertaining framework that explores and explains, as well as inspires. Don’t get the wrong idea, though. While it tackles serious issues, it doesn’t drag the reader down. In fact, I found myself uplifted. I am left with the idea that the universe, in all its mysteriousness, also provides us with more opportunities to get it right than we could ever imagine. That’s a very comforting thought. I highly recommend reading “Something to Dream On.” It will be time well spent. I’m glad the universe saw fit to help me discover Diane Rinella’s work. You will be too.
