More About the Author

Lindsay Hall was born in Ohio and has lived in Switzerland, New York City, the Hudson Valley, New Jersey, Boston, and Long Island. Her "checkered career" includes stints as a New York City public school teacher, a cigarette girl at the Copacabana, a textbook editor, and a deputy to the Governor of New York. Ms. Hall and her husband currently live in Virginia, but they met, married, and lived for a number of years on Long Island, the setting for all of her romance novels so far.

ROMANCE, SEX, & LAUGHS are what you get in the "Jan Duffy" series, four light-hearted novels about Jan's often funny and always sexy post-divorce efforts to reclaim her life and (maybe, maybe, maybe) find love again. All four of the "Jan" books are available now at Amazon.com: "Jan's Excellent Romance," "Jan's Romantic Dilemma," "Jan's Loony Love Life," and "Jan's Romantic Decision." (In Book 4, "Jan's Romantic Decision" you'll find out which of the three sexy guys featured in Books 1, 2, and 3 Jan finally chooses. But does she marry again? You have to read Book 4 to find out!) All of the Jan books are available in Kindle and paperback formats.

WATCH FOR LINDSAY HALL'S NEXT SERIES (DUE IN LATE 2014 AND 2015) -- SET IN THE SAME LONG ISLAND TOWN AS THE JAN SERIES -- Jan and her café are still there, but new characters take center stage. For example, Chick and Verdie Clapper, who own a convenience store and auto repair shop in Beach Haven. Everybody in town eventually drops by Chick and Verdie's for a sandwich or a car repair. It's romance, comedy and -- of all things -- a murder mystery!

Two of Lindsay Hall's earlier novels are also availble at Amazon.com: "The Mistress of Clifftop Manor" and "Billy and Maeve, in Love Forever."

"The Mistress of Clifftop Manor," published in August 2011, is available at Amazon.com as a print paperback and as an ebook for Kindle.
Kirkus/Indie review says:
"Hall picks up where Charlotte Bronté left off with a tale of murder, jealousy, class and forbidden love.
"Hall follows the themes and motifs of the classic Gothic novel almost as meticulously as she weaves 19th century historical anecdotes into the plot. Both techniques serve to create a refreshing, exciting story in which the young, virtuous heroine, Lillie Lorimer, travels to America to seek refuge with an estranged relative following the death of her father and sole benefactor. Unfortunately, tragedy strikes again, and she is forced to seek her own means of supporting herself in the bustling, tenement-laden streets of New York City. As luck would have it, a job practically falls into Lillie's lap, and all seems not lost. Yet her new job as governess to the children of devastatingly rich and handsome railroad magnate Jay Caldwell may not be such a dream. At Clifftop Manor, situated on the picturesque Long Island Sound, she has much to worry about, namely her dangerous attraction to her employer, shady figures traveling through secret tunnels and passages and the growing envy of Caldwell's irrational wife. Though the plot seems byzantine in structure, it unfolds with great care and precision, solving mysteries as it creates new ones. Each chapter bounds well off the last....The plot is grand and turbulent.
"High marks for adventure and romance in this Gothic historical thriller: a novel to make you swoon on a dark and stormy night.' [End Kirkus review]

"Billy and Maeve, in Love Forever," published in June 2011, is also available at Amazon.com as a print paperback and as an ebook for Kindle. This novel weaves together the lives of six generations of two families, the Walshes and the Kozinskis, spanning a swathe of American life from 1940 to 2040. At the center of it all is the 77-year romance of Billy and Maeve, two people who fell in love and stayed that way. A heartwarming story of lifelong sexual passion and true love.
Kirkus Indie Review:
"A romance. An old-fashioned love story (with raunchy elements!)"[End of Kirkus review]

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. It was in the tradition of writers like Victoria Holt, with wonderful spooky settings and hidden dangers. And it had a great and unexpected twist at the end. I hope to see more from this author!!

This book was an interesting combination of somewhat simplistic writing and more polished writing - almost as if it started as a first attempt, then the author rewriting sections. It's not bad, just a bit odd.

The plot is almost completely predictable, but there were some good variations and twists that kept it interesting. Overall, I liked the story and was willing to overlook some of the amateurish sections.
