A new review on Goodreads led me to the book review site for Sallyfromoz, where reviews for both my books have been posted. Sally is also taking part in the Australian Women Writer’s Challenge 2013, so supporting Aussie writers. Here’s the review. It’s made my day.
TROUBLE BREWING is the second book in a series about the Shakespeare women and like the first one I had such fun reading it. The first book, Forecast, was set in the USA; now author Jane Tara takes her readers over to England to meet the other women in the family. As with the first book there are quite a few back-stories going on which did leave me wondering how any future books are going to play out as all of the Shakespeare women on both side of the Atlantic now seem to have complete stories. But no matter TROUBLE BREWING has romance, anger, passion, sadness, babies, magic and even fairies – both good and bad – cool! Life is not all magic and roses – and there are some things that magic can’t cure. Like all people, real and fictional, when faced with loss and everything is beyond your abilities to change life falls apart; it is how you put your life together that counts. All the characters go through a crisis in one form or another. It is how they react, cope and still keep their sense of humour and the book light that demonstrates Jane Tara’s talent. I really enjoyed the journey the book took me on, loved the characters and want more!
