More About the Author

Rosemarie Naramore's fondest desire has always been to write fiction. She was delighted when her first romance novel, "Just in Time," was published by Avalon Books. She went on to write three other lighthearted romances for Avalon--"Armed and Disarming," "The Detour," and "Lacey's Homecoming," as well as a mystery entitled "The Listing Agent." When Amazon acquired Avalon in 2012, her second mystery/police procedural, "Deputy Down," was published under the Thomas & Mercer imprint. She is pleased that her romance novels have been released by Amazon under their Montlake imprint.


Rosemarie has self-published a varied selection of e-books available exclusively from Amazon. From middle grade horror to young adult fantasy, from romance to mystery, Rosemarie has tried it all. She enjoys writing in the aforementioned genres and may even explore others.


Award-winning author Rosemarie Naramore lives and writes in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She is married to a deputy sheriff. Her readers have no doubt discovered that law enforcement officers are often featured prominently in her books. She hopes you'll find her heroes and heroines 'arresting' and that her books provide an entertaining respite from the demands of busy lives.

This book is fabulous! I started it and finished it tonight. Could not put it down!
Plot and characters are believable. Story line is one many women can relate to.
Author has a unique talent and I hope she keeps writing.

One thing I GREATLY admire. The author has shown, without doubt, a great novel does not need sex in it to be good. It needs a good plot, characters, and the rest.

I loved this story! I admit I got it for free and probably would have passed except for the cute dachshund on the cover. The story has all the elements of a sappy romance that is a breath of freedom to read. A story that refreshes you in between all the other books. It makes you realize this is why you read in the first place. I recommend picking this one up for a delightful, entertaining, and thought provoking read.

There is a very good story in this book for anyone who likes a sweet romance. The general plot and characters seemed well thought out.

But the execution could have been so much better. There are minor plot holes, like when the heroine mentions putting the dogs where they have access to a doggie door all day and then rushes them outside whenever she gets home. And more significant issues surrounding the paint debacle, which is a major event in the story. 1 - That better be some super, super premium paint to cost $40/gallon wholesale. 2 - I have a hard time picturing a room in anyone's house that would require 10 gallons, let alone 20. 3 - She later mixes up a specific color right in the store so I can't figure out why it would have needed to be a special order in the first place. 4 - She repeatedly mentions that her bill and her customer's bill was the exact same amount. No one is going to stay in business long charging customers the wholesale price.

The writing was inconsistent. I usually have no patience for easily cleared up misconceptions, but the author did okay not drawing either out too much. And I really could understand why the guy didn't want to reveal a certain detail right away or at the wrong time. But there are a few words and phrases that Ms. Naramore would do well to retire, including "suddenly," "epiphany," "scrubbed his hand across his jaw," "pinned him/her with a look," and "snared his/her gaze." After the fourth or fifth snared gaze I was starting to picture eyeballs being lassoed out of heads. No character should be allowed to have more than one or two epiphanies per chapter, especially when it's essentially the same epiphany each time. And interruptions sort of by definition happen suddenly.

I truly loved this story! I read it in one sitting. Ethan and Marcia are wonderful characters and I also enjoyed the supporting cast. I want a man like Ethan! He was masculine and strong, attentive and protective. He loved Marcia for who she was and never tried to change her as her ex-husband had tried to do. There were several misunderstandings, including Ethan not being completely upfront about his identity. But they did not drag out too long or overwhelm the story so as to overtake the story and leave the reader impatiently waiting for the "big" and usually "anti-climatic" "reveal"! I laughed and smiled and had warm fuzziness.

Strongly recommend.

I enjoyed reading "Actions Speak Louder" because I was in the mood for a light, sweet romance that basically followed a standard romance pattern. I was not looking for reality which is good because it was very predictable and had a few holes in the plot. Nevertheless, the characters were very likable and seeing a really nice women being pursued by such a handsome, strong, protective man who loves her exactly as she is, made for very pleasant reading time. Also, I am an animal lover so I loved the inclusion of the two lovable dachshunds in the story.

The heroine, Marcia, had an awful lot of epiphanies which did get a little annoying after a while. In addition, the word "behoove" was used several times and I felt that this word didn't fit in with the author's style of writing, which was very casual and easygoing. Another point I chose to ignore was how quickly Marcia was able to get over the effects of five years of heavy emotional abuse without professional help, with just her epiphanies. I was a therapist for women who had survived years of domestic violence, so I know a lot about the subject (probably more than the author) but as I said previously, I had decided to treat this book as a fantasy, so Marcia falling in love with Ethan so quickly fit right in with the story and I liked reading it.

Overall, I found this book to be very nice. It was not great but if you're looking for some light reading with a HEA ending, then I definitely recommend that you give this book a try. Happy reading!

The main drama in this book wasn't whether the main characters would realize they belonged together, but whether or not a finicky hardware store customer would be able to return several gallons of mustard yellow paint. The characters are so squeaky clean and one dimensional that it's hard to maintain any sort of interest in the romance.

Some "clean" romances are still able to generate heat and tension, but this wasn't one of them.
