Book Description

Insider trading, rambunctious Christmas parties, overnight conferences, the modern office environment has it all. But it can also be the stage for a simple, modern love story.
ALBERTA CLIPPER is that story.

Christine Grogan is a successful meteorologist with a loving family, great friends and an exciting career working for an international investment bank. So why does she spend every January 20th crying like her heart might break? As everyone around her appears to be moving on with their lives, Christine wears her past like a pair of concrete shoes. Can nothing, or nobody help her shake them?
Mark Harrington thought he had all he ever wanted. Head of the bank's Irish operations, he has the career, the house and the relationship any man would wish for. But when his seemingly perfectly planned life suddenly strays totally off course, Mark is confronted with the fact that he isn't actually in control at all...
...and that he is crazy in love with Christine.

A pacy, witty read, Alberta Clipper is a story of old-fashioned love in a contemporary world. A story of guilt and forgiveness, trust and betrayal, and absolute, unconditional love.

The story of two people, each floundering in their own lives, who might just be able to save one another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying and emotional read November 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A well written tale of love and loss with a satisfying resolution, the characters in Alberta Clipper are finely drawn and Sheena Lambert's brilliant observation moves the story swiftly along. Lambert obviously has an indepth knowledge of the environment her characters inhabit, not least of the Alberta Clipper - but you'll have to read the book to discover what that is, and its significance! An impressive debut that bodes well for Lambert's writing career, highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good everyday story June 29, 2013
By Mara
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not compelling, but a well-written story about the sort of everyday romance that many people have. No stalkers, serial murderers, vampires, werewolves, etc! Just a good story about realistic people and the kind of relationships that really happen.

Format:Kindle Edition
Christine Grogan has been living with terrible guilt. On January 20th of each year she spends the day grieving over this guilt. The rest of the year her life appears great. She is 28 years old, with a job as a meteorologist at an investment bank, has a loving family, and great friends. She just has to find a way to move on with her life.

Mark Harrington is in a relationship that is heading any where and has realized he has not had any control over it. Other than that he has everything else going for him. He is head of an international bank, handsome, and owns his own house. He just needs to get control of his love life, which he hopes includes Christine.
Alberta Clipper is a true romance story. Early on I knew Mark was in love with Christine, but Christine was clueless. Through a Christmas party, conferences, and a New Years Eve party Christine and Mark finally start some type of a relationship. But I was still hoping Christine would open up and share a part of her that very few know about. For their relationship to last, and I was hoping it would, they had to have honesty and trust.

It seemed every character in this book had their own short story to add to the main story. All these stories let me better understand the hows and whys of how each character was as they were. Everything from insider trading, Christine's past and office drama were covered making this so much more than just a love story.

Sheena Lambert wrote a believable story about love and loss and finding your soulmate. It is also a story of guilt, forgiveness, and betrayal. I highly recommend this novel to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Held my attention May 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story did begin quite slowly. And, it seems the true meat of the plot is way down the line. But, I liked the characters from the office and from Christine's life. There were some twists that made the book intriguing. I had a hard time forgetting this book when I put it down. Highly recommend.

This story was not what I expected and the title was misleading. I downloaded it one day and forgot about it. The story is beautifully told. I will definitely read more from this writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid debut romance novel July 2, 2013
Format:Paperback
Alberta Clipper is a solid chick lit book which really lifts off in the last quarter of the book. I was pleasantly surprised at the ending, because I really wasn't expecting the direction it took in the last couple of chapters. The characters are likeable and hearing their different perspectives pulls the reader along wondering if these two are ever going to make it together.

Who knew that meteorologists work for investment banks and what they do there? I certainly didn't and found it interesting. Alberta Clipper has something to do with weather, but I'll let you read the book to find out what it is.

A romance novel filled with love, loss and finding your soul mate. A great first novel for Sheena Lambert.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read !! May 9, 2013
Format:Paperback
After reading this book, I'm kicking myself for not starting sooner. It's been awhile since I've felt so emotionally invested in a book. This love story is between Christine Grogan and Mark Harrington. The characters rang true, their struggles were real and their approach to life and how to deal with things only made them more real. The sub-stories of the other character added well to the main plot. The author has written a touching and very emotional story about love, loss and trying to find your soulmate. A fantastic read, and would highly recommend it. An impressive debut!

It certainly gets better as you move through the story because it is kind of slow at the beginning.

Good job!

More About the Author

It took ten years working as an engineer on a landfill site, five years running a fashion boutique and one year lecturing in waste management and recycling before 38 year old Sheena Lambert from Dublin, Ireland, realised she was supposed to have been a writer all along.
Her first novel, ALBERTA CLIPPER, was published in November 2012.
Now, in addition to raising two boys and making the dinner every day, she writes feature articles for a living, and is working on her second novel.
Sheena lives in Dublin, Ireland for the moment, but if she wins the lottery, you will find her in a little village somewhere in the south of France, making red wine.
