4.0 out of 5 stars 'First Loves and Second Chances', August 3, 2011
This review is from: Love Letters (Paperback)
If you want a contemporary adult romance, light and easy to read, with a happy ending, then look no further, for this is a fine example, from an author who is new to the genre.

As the plot begins to unfold, the outcome is all but inevitable, but the journey to get there is full of romance, heartbreak, whimsy and a little humour.

It is a story of second chances; about the rekindling, repairing and ending of relationships; but ultimately, of following your heart.

At the start, we see Chloe as a very confused young woman. The calming influence and unconditional love of her father, during her formative teenage years, has been cruelly curtailed by death, leaving Chloe in the clutches of her possessive, domineering and over-bearing mother, until the situation has become just too much for her to bear and now they are estranged.

Chloe now seeks some renewed security and stability, but is beginning to realise that her life may be running in parallel with that of her mother, and that she may be making the unthinkable mistake of swapping her possessive mother, for an equally controlling husband.

The confusion of Chloe's own feelings, is only further tested, when documents are revealed, showing that her mother had chosen security in her own marriage, to the detriment of her true feelings, thus making her the bitter, resentful and unhappy person that she had become.

Chloe now starts to `come of age', as she considers not only her own future, but that of her mother. With heightened perception, she realises the sacrifices and heartbreak that her mother has endured, in order to give her a stable upbringing and she resolves to heal the rift with her mother, by working to give her a second chance at happiness, but should she follow a similar course with her own life and allow her heart to rule her head, in the pursuit of true love and lasting happiness?

The transformation in her mother, with her new found love and happiness, is amazing and Chloe now realises that it is time to make a similar decision of her own, before it is to late ......

A fantastic debut novel, full of characters who are nurtured and changed throughout the emerging storyline, written with great perception and a little humour.

An author we are sure to hear lots more of in the future, Geraldine is already working on her next novel in the genre, `Chocolicious', the title alone is sure to make this a popular choice for all you romantics out there.
