More About the Author
"Spouse Trap," set in her hometown of Santa Barbara, CA, is the prequel to the series. It tells the story of how Madeline Ridley becomes Madeline Dawkins, and the dual careers she forges after going to hell and back. It was released in February 2013 and has received very enthusiastic feedback.
Because of what she put her heroine through in the first installment, the author realized Madeline needed to have martial arts training in the subsequent books. To that end, she has taken up karate, a discipline she has fallen in love with - so much so, she incorporated her instructor into her latest book.
The author's other works include "A High Price to Pay," "Lucky at Love," "Alligators in the Trees," "Golden State," and her first non-fiction "Once Upon a Lyme..." which chronicles the onset of a mysterious illness and the unexpected dividend of becoming a writer.

The plot is full of pitfalls and triumphs as Roxanne tries to dig herself out of a dead-end life and prove to herself and all the naysayers that she's capable of anything if she wants it badly enough. She's the perfect anti-heroine turned super heroine. She and Andrea made me laugh out loud. I don't want to spoil anything, but Roxanne's adventures in the real estate world were so accurate and hilarious, I have to wonder at the author's background.
When my friend sent this ebook to me, I thought I was in for pretty light fare; a few compromising situations, some wistful musings, but not something that was so cleverly written. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who's ever felt like life was against them, or anyone who enjoys a spirited, rollicking tale.
Cynthia Hamilton, with her usual deft touch, creates a sympathetic character, who embodies all the frustrations, aggravations, and downright mean people many of us have experienced in various workplaces. This familiarity allows us to begin rooting for Roxanne's triumph, even as she sometimes ignores what might be best for her and makes decisions that would harm her in the long run. Hamilton's gift for dialogue is impressive. Conversations between characters ring so true, the reader can at times feel like an eavesdropper. But dialogue is only one of Hamilton's gifts as a writer. She constructs character-driven stories masterfully. I admit to a fondness, an affection, okay an obsession, with strongly drawn characters. They carry a story, they are the story, and Hamilton is adept at conjuring characters that seize my interest, propel me through their plots, and always leave me wanting more.
Golden State is a hopeful work, with a positive message.Read more ›
