"...exceptionally well written...a very intriguing and somewhat sad story. A story of lovers separated by fate. When they meet again, sparks fly, but this story is not a fairy tale romance. This is more like real life, and made my heart hurt a little. Long and Short reviews
"I'll admit I grabbed this book for review more because Emelle Gamble had a story in there - I've loved her significant touch brought to family relationships in a previous book of hers that I've read, and I wanted to confirm if this sort of embroiled-relationships type of tale is really her niche or not. Turns out, it is!" Zee Monodee's Author's Corner reviews
From the Author
Q&A with Emelle 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's or two family's lives are careening toward one another and then merge. As a writer, I'm always intrigued at examining the ebb and flow of relationships and of the suspense that comes from the unforeseen, uncontrollable events that change all the character's best laid plans for living happily ever after. In other words, Molly Harper and Cruz Morales, and Harry and Anne Sullivan were the yin and yang of love in my head, so I decided to push the button and see what happens.
Q: You give Molly Harper a very tough choice between first love Cruz Morales and new love Ben Delmonico. Do you like triangles?
A: Adore them. I think we've all lived through being one side of one, and I think being torn between two loves, two lifestyles, two men that fulfill different 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 favorite story or novella ends. I love multi-part books, and continuing characters. With Duets, (which is a prequal to the full-length novel, Molly Harper) I wrote about the most dramatic 'turning point' moment in the lives of two couples. In Molly Harper, we'll see what happens three years after all those decisions were made, and how Molly Harper, Cruz Morales and the Sullivan family are holding up.
