Oct 7th 2012 'Candy's Man' was rated 4 out of 5 Stars on Goodreads
'Candy's Man' by Jeanette Hornby has all the bells and whistles: snappy, slick, with a well-planned plot laden with passion, twists and thwarted desire. There are beautiful people, beautiful cars, beautiful houses and beautiful clothes. Not to mention the shoes. And enough emotion, tension and unhappy confusions to keep you glued to the story. Will Candy get her man? Rather ask, will Candy's Man get her? The twists and turns are so adroitly planned, I could not stop reading - I had to know the answers to these questions. Well-written, well-paced, it is both heart-warming and heated, intriguing and satisfying. If you're a lover of traditional romance novels, then this one's for you.
Read a Review of 'Where The Heart Is' 5 Star Review
'I found the book to be well-written and interesting. I couldn't put the book down.'
Feb 5th 2012 'Heart's Promise' was reviewed and rated 4 out of 5 Stars on Goodreads
'This is a deceptively gentle book that takes you on that old, familiar roller-coaster ride of adolescent love.
Set in Australia in the early seventies, this is a story of a small community, family discord, religious and racial prejudices, friendship and loyalty; and children struggling to find their own identity in the see-saw of adult relationships. The novel skilfully portrays Milly, a young girl on the brink of sexual awareness and adult emotions; her conflicting feelings, her first kiss, the tumult of jealousy and betrayal, the reality of loss and grief.
What I liked about this book was the quiet, easy style of writing, cleverly introducing the more serious underlying issues of class, dysfunctional families, and the dangers faced when growing up - all within the framework of ordinary life. at the end of the book, I was loath to leave Milly and Flynn, they had built so strongly in my mind. This is a story for young and old, universal in appeal. A real trip down memory lane.'
