Great review of Love Handles

Happy day! The blog A ROMANCE OF THE BODY enjoyed Love Handles and is offering a free copy in a contest. A quote from the review:

This is a fully-developed novel with real people I want to have over for a BBQ or invite to share a pitcher of margaritas. Beverly isn’t your typical female romance novel lead, but she’s also not some overblown anti-stereotype, either. She’s a real human being who has been underestimated for far too long and finally reaches her breaking point.

  My sincere thanks to Harper Alibeck for the review and the giveaway. Check it out.

You reviewed MY book? Oh, thank you!

This morning I received a wonderful surprise: a glowing review of my hot contemporary romance Quick Study at a new blog, A Romance of the Body. Author has begun a Monday Review contest for readers and writers to enter a drawing for the book she reviews that Monday. She chose my book, loved it, and notified me this morning.

The erotic scenes are well done, and Galway builds the tension between the characters by crafting various obstacles – both internal and external – leaving the reader with a strong understanding of what each character is thinking without overwhelming the prose with too much “in the head” time. She shows and she tells – and the balance is good, hot, wet and satisfying.

By the end of the book I wandered out into the living room to find my husband playing Uru, three happy kids, and a completely destroyed living room. Small price to pay for an enjoyable read. This is Galway’s first book and, I hope, not her last.

I’m sorry about the living room and the Uru, but this surprise review really made my day. Thanks for letting me indulge in a squee.

Here’s the rest of her giveaway info:
