"...exceptionallywell written...a very intriguing and somewhat sad story. A story of loversseparated by fate. When they meet again, sparks fly, but this story is not afairy tale romance. This is more like real life, and made my heart hurt alittle. Long and Short reviews
"I'lladmit I grabbed this book for review more because Emelle Gamble had a story inthere - I've loved her significant touch brought to family relationships in aprevious book of hers that I've read, and I wanted to confirm if this sort ofembroiled-relationships type of tale is really her niche or not. Turns out, itis!" Zee Monodee's Author'sCorner reviews
From the Author
Q&A withEmelle Gamble about Duets
Q: Why this story of these two women and these two men?
A: As a reader, I've always loved parallel narratives, where two people'sor two family's lives are careening toward one another and then merge. As awriter, I'm always intrigued at examining the ebb and flow of relationships andof the suspense that comes from the unforeseen, uncontrollable events thatchange all the character's best laid plans for living happily ever after. Inother words, Molly Harper and Cruz Morales, and Harry and Anne Sullivan werethe yin and yang of love in my head, so I decided to push the button and seewhat happens.
Q: You give Molly Harper a very tough choice between first love CruzMorales and new love Ben Delmonico. Do you like triangles?
A: Adore them. I think we've all lived through being one side of one, andI think being torn between two loves, two lifestyles, two men that fulfilldifferent needs is the most challenging storyline there is for a woman.
Q: But doesn't someone always go home a loser in a triangle story?
A: Someone always goes home. But for how long? I've often wondered "but what happens next..." when a favoritestory or novella ends. I love multi-part books, and continuing characters. WithDuets, (which is a prequal to the full-lengthnovel, Molly Harper) I wrote about the most dramatic 'turning point' moment in the lives of twocouples. In Molly Harper, we'll see what happens three yearsafter all those decisions were made, and how Molly Harper, Cruz Morales and theSullivan family are holding up.
