Another brilliant read

Another brilliant read by Barbara Samuel (who now has equal status as my favourite author alongside Susan Elizabeth Phillips.)

A PIECE OF HEAVEN features an American Indian hero, complete with acne scars and paunch, and she makes him sexier than sexy!
Luna, the heroine, is an alcoholic.

The way Barbara weaves a beautiful tale around these characters (along with a host of fabulous secondary characters) made me never want to put this book down.

If you haven't read Barbara, you absolutely have to.
The way she layers emotion and brings characters to life is nothing short of brilliant.

Hi Nic, If Barbara can make a hero with a paunch sexy she has to be a excellent writer because I can't see sexy with a guys paunch. I do love Indian heroes though.

You should read the book, Dena, and let me know what you think.

She's fabulous!

Hi Nic, I did put Barbara on my list of new Authors to check out when you first mentioned her but haven't been able to get any of her books yet. I plan to though.

I recently bought all mine from the Book Depository in the UK (online), Dena.

They're fabulous and postage is free to anywhere in the world.
