A Wet Kookaburra and a Countdown Deal!

14 Mar

Margaret's Classic Posts

It’s been unseasonably warm for Autumn here in Sydney, Australia, and what better way to cool off than splashing around in cool water…

This charming icon of Australian bird-life, the Laughing Kookaburra, is drying himself off after just such an experience in the little pool under the water bubbler in our local park.

In other news, my recently released title, ‘Uncertain Love’, has received its second review – this time from respected Goodreads librarian Marianne. And she liked it very much. _She’s also known as Cloggie Down Under). As luck would have it, this title is also right now a Countdown deal in the US and UK. Please spread the word, and help it make its very first sale!

Three Reviews in a Row!

25 Jan

Very rarely do I get three positive reviews in a row within a couple of days. So when this happens, it calls for a celebration!

First, let me thank most sincerely the wonderful Canadian writer Carol Balawyder for her five star review of ‘Love, Desire and Betrayal’.

Next came the very positive, four star review by Tony Parsons of ‘Of Love and Secrets’

Brenda’s Review: ‘Of Love and Secrets’

Thanks so much Brenda, for posting this review on Goodreads.

Of Love and Secrets

4 of 5 stars

Read on December 19, 2014 — I own a copy

Jenny was feeling unhappy about her break-up with James – more so because he seemed to have found her replacement fairly quickly. Jenny was eighteen, still studying and finding her feet. She lived at home with her Mum and Dad as she didn’t have a job, so didn’t have the money to do anything more than that. The night she let her good friend Cate persuade her to go to a friend’s party turned out to be much nicer, much more fun that she had envisioned. Spending a lot of the evening in the company of Richard took her mind off James – then when Richard wanted to see her again the next day, she was delighted.

But her Mum was sure Jenny was too young to have a new relationship so soon after her break-up with James – she treated Jenny like a child; there were many heated arguments between mother and daughter. Would Jenny’s mother come round; would she acknowledge that she was indeed an adult and knew her own mind now? And what would the future bring for Richard and Jenny?

Of Love and Secrets is a delightful, sweet little romance; a quick, easy read by Aussie author Margaret Lynette Sharp which I enjoyed and in my opinion it is her best yet. I have no hesitation in recommending this novella to all lovers of a light romance.

With thanks to the author for my copy to read and review

‘Of Love and Secrets’ will be released on Amazon Kindle during January, 2015
