About the Author
More About the Author
Gun Brooke, born and living on the West Coast of Sweden, lives in a small, Viking era village with her family and dogs. She is a mother of two, now grown up, and grandmother of five. This keeps her young as she needs to stay current with these kids. Gun still finds time to write a new book every year. Sometimes two!
Gun loves romance and science fiction. She always injects romance in her sci fi as all her stories are character driven. That said, naturally her sci fi holds tons of adventure.
Apart from writing, Gun enjoys crafts, her dogs, anything to do with computers, collects makeup, and works hard on learning to create digital art. This has led to her creating book covers for herself and others. She uses DAZstudio and Photoshop, mainly, but also Zbrush, to create the 3D digital art which she renders into 2D images.
Gun has an extended family in the US and some of her best friends live there, and she tries to travel there at least once a year, preferably twice.
It is not a secret that Gun suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, for many years. This ended her career as a NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) nurse, but it also opened for a career in writing. This is important to Gun. She feels she can show her children, and others, you will always find something else around the corner. Even when things appear somber, you can find a new path, if you just dare to look. And then grab the tiger by the tail and dare to dream.
Top Customer Reviews
I'm a sucker for May/December romances and Gun seems to favour these. I liked that the characters actually talked to each other and got to know each other, rather than the usual met and fall in love in two weeks with little interaction stories that seem to be the norm in this category. I also liked that there wasn't a lot of gnashing of teeth over the age difference. I very much enjoyed Stacey's character and her relationship with Addie. But the story came undone due to a contrived split up drama towards the end (which seems obligatory in all Lesfic, so I guess it was to be expected) . The story could also have used a more thorough edit, there were misplaced or wrong words, and changed name spelling etc. throughout that broke the flow when reading. It's a nice enough read though.
You should definitely purchase this book if you have read her past books and lover her writing. You should also just buy it because its a wonderful story. You will enjoy it immensely.

I would certainly recommend this book. As someone stated in a previous review, the May /December was well written. Hit close to home. I was in one for 40 years.Published 20 months ago by Amazon Customer
Really a good book. Normally such a large age difference will give me the creeps, but I think Gun Brooke had written the book, so that the main characters were equal. Good work.Published 21 months ago by T.S.
