Throwback Thursday is a series where we take a look back at some of BRD’s most popular posts. Enjoy!

Lost in Shadows by Anita Devito

Romantic suspense is one of my favourite genres, as such I jumped at the chance to read and review Lost in Shadow. The blurb hinted at exciting things to happen, which made me eager to read this one. I was pulled into the story from the moment I began reading. The suspense at the drama at the start was riveting and I eagerly turned the pages as I wanted to know how the events would unfold.

Topaz and Lace – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

Topaz and Lace by Amber Laura Young

When I first came across this novel, the title didn’t appeal to me. The blurb didn’t really catch my fancy either. I shrugged and turned away from it. But then I read a few lines of writing by the author from another work, and I was immediately impressed. There was so much atmosphere there in those few sentences that it made me check the novel again.

I took a peek in the book. After reading the first pages, I knew I wanted to read it all. I still don’t know what the title as to do with the book, but I found it nigh on impossible to put down!

Editorial Review – The Caretaker

The Book Review Directory

Title: The Caretaker

Author: Carol Schoenig

Genre: Romance

The Caretaker by Carol Schoenig tells the story of Phae as she tries to make her own life after an abusive marriage and many years as a single-parent.  She decides to go to Spain to work as a caretaker for an estate.  There, she meets Finn and the two start a romance.

This book is much more than a simple, straight-forward romance story.  Phae is older than your typical love-interest (aged 64).  Both she and Finn have loved and lost before (he is also a widower).  Their love is complicated by family matters.  Schoenig goes against the old trope of parental interference and instead it is Phae’s children who try to stand between her and Finn.
