REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was definitely a different type of book than the author's other novels that I have read. I was hoping that it could be a better fit for the author as I was on the fence about the other books I've read from her.Something is just missing though.
The characters are all well-written, with thoughts and lives that the reader can empathize with. Some of the supporting characters are almost too well-written if that makes any sense. I've found that at times the level of description given is so heavy that it tends to put the brakes on the action of the scene for a moment.
The romance between Ben and Lucy was two dimensional for me, it didn't feel real. They meet, then there's a whole bunch of action between, then they meet again, and suddenly they're in love. I think there needs to be a connecting thread between them during that action part.
The action went along at an okay pace. As I read, I found the action starting to flat-line, then something shocking would jolt it back, then it would start to gradually flat line, then it would get shocked back again.
Overall, the story is very well-written, the characters are well-written, but something is missing, perhaps some tension that keeps the story line alive and kicking the entire time.

About the author:

My main loves are writing, painting and singing. I began work as a PA but to my joy was spotted by an agent in London and had an exciting career as a singer, meeting and singing with some wonderful people. Singing meant a lot of travelling both in the UK and abroad. At one time, I toured Germany and Turkey singing for the American troops, which was a fantastic experience. But then, my husband and I wanted a family, so I said good-bye to the singing career, although I did the occasional gig. Having children is such a precious time, and I would say to anyone, treasure it, it goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re waving them off to Uni or pursuing their own dreams and their own homes. I have always had a deep interest in psychology for various reasons, and especially the area of neurosis arising from abuse. Later, I was to study how we could use our body, mind and spirit to relieve pain and overcome some life-threatening diseases. One important thing here is, I always told my patients to continue with medical treatment along with the complementary and spiritual methods, for I believe medical research and medication is also a gift from God, Spirit or the Universe, as each of us wishes to name it. I have loved writing from a child and during the years of study, research and treating some wonderful people, whom I called my friends, I would write at night, mainly short stories, and reams of poetry. I wanted to learn how to write self-help books for my clients, so I took creative writing courses at university, which led to writing a novel. So self-help novels turned to fiction but even so, I hope the novels help the reader through their own challenges, as the characters experience love, loss, passion, jealousy, illness, joy and conflict, even the threat of death.
