Lola's Money

Lola French is stunned when she wins millions on the Lottery, and she is sure all her dreams are about to come true. However, right from the start, before she even claims her winnings, she separates abruptly and acrimoniously from the man she has been living with.
Lola’s colleagues are initially pleased for her, but eventually begin to resent her new status. One of them, Tom, whom she really likes, asks her out; but he does it on the day that news of her win spreads through the office and she sadly turns him down. She leaves her job as a Financial Adviser in Edinburgh to explore the limitless possibilities of her new lifestyle.
When Lola and her mother excitedly set off on a Mediterranean cruise, it's not long before they both meet men they are interested in. However, their holiday of a lifetime catapults them into a life-changing sequence of dramatic and terrifying events that neither of them will ever forget. When she has to return to reality, Lola unexpectedly finds herself involved with Tom again! But the storm clouds are looming overhead, and as the recent past catches up with her and forces her to confront violence and danger once more, Lola risks losing Tom forever.

BEST FIVE-STAR REVIEW (Goodreads) : Melissa Parkin
 
Won this book through a giveaway, and I'm so happy I did! Great portrayal of the VERY likable lead character. It's a terrific read worth devouring with a unique premise that has you drawn in by Lola's humbleness. Can't wait to read more by Ms. Rae.

 

APRIL'S MAN

Three sisters, April, Belinda and June, have lived together happily in their Glasgow home until the day that April introduces her boyfriend Scott to her family – and Belinda falls for him! She eventually admits to herself that she’s in love with him – at the same time as her sister becomes engaged to him!

When Scott helps Belinda with some difficult family problems, she falls even deeper under his spell, but becomes reluctantly engaged to her own boyfriend Jim. Scott and Belinda draw closer as they desperately try to stop Belinda’s friend from becoming suicidal. Just as Scott finally admits he loves Belinda, Fate strikes again. If they had felt trapped before, it’s nothing to how they feel when a traumatic situation brings events to a dramatic, life-changing conclusion.

BEST FIVE-STAR REVIEW (Amazon) - Lorraine Sutherland:

A thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable read. Gives an insight to a normal family life living in the city of Glasgow. Especially centring on the lives of three sisters. The twists and turns were incredible and the unexpected ending in the building society was the icing on the cake for me.

Spellbinding, thrilling, brilliant and I would recommend this book to anyone.

Lynsey's Secret

Jack Forrest is a married man with a secret. He has persuaded his partner in their Estate Agent business, James Bolton, to employ Lynsey Robson as Team Secretary.

Lynsey previously lived in Glasgow, but Jack has helped her to move to the Lanarkshire area so that she can be nearer to him. He has a confession to make to his wife and is having difficulty in "biting the bullet". James, however, takes against Lynsey because Jack has insisted on his employing her. He decides to try to get rid of her and begins to make her life a misery in any way that he can.

As the story progresses, Lynsey and James are almost always at loggerheads. Lynsey, through no fault of her own, becomes enmeshed in a web of deceit and a certain amount of intrugue. Against this background of relationships in crisis Lynsey's mother, Julia, makes an appearance and events begin to escalate.

BEST 4-STAR REVIEW (Goodreads) - Julie Whiteley:

Rosanna's novels seem to not only focus on romance, but also on the family dynamic. There is one main couple, but the whole family is involved and at stake through out the novel. I really like that about her novels.

Families are complicated under the best of circumstances, but throw some serious issues in that are very, very, sensitive, that could tear apart relationships forever and you've a page turner! I read this one practically in one sitting.
