About the Author

R J Samuel was born in Nigeria, to Indian parents from Kerala. She grew up in different parts of Nigeria with a brief stint in boarding school in the Nilgiri Hills in India and occasional summers in Kerala, London, and New York. She moved to Ireland at 17 to complete her medical studies and vividly remembers the shock of arriving at Galway Train Station on an icy October night. Despite that traumatic first meeting, she fell in love with Galway and has remained there since, apart from a 3-year episode in the southwest of France. She is an Irish citizen and now considers herself almost Irish as well as almost Indian. She has been writing creatively for years, apart from her period in France where she wrote nothing creative, probably because she was running a restaurant-bar despite having a background in Medicine (she is a qualified medical doctor) and IT (she has a Masters in IT) and absolutely no background in restaurants, apart from eating in them. Her first novel, 'Heart Stopper,' was published in February 2012 and her second novel, 'Falling Colours - The Misadventures of a Vision Painter,' in June 2012. Her third novel, Casting Shadows - The Further Misadventures of a Vision Painter, was published in January 2013. Her novels are set in the West of Ireland, in Galway and Connemara, and also in Kerala, India. Her story 'Helmets' was shortlisted for the 2011 Over the Edge 'New Writer of the Year Competition' and she was the only entrant to have both her fiction and her poetry long-listed for the Doire Press '1st Annual International Fiction and Poetry Chapbook Competition' in January 2012. Her fiction entry, 'The Vision Painter,' went on to be shortlisted for this competition and was the basis for her second novel, 'Falling Colours - The Misadventures of a Vision Painter.' Her story ‘Parallel Lives’ was shortlisted for the 2012 Over the Edge 'New Writer of the Year Competition'.

I want to read lesbian fiction that dares to be different. Searching through the lesbian fiction lists on the Internet my quest was rewarded when I came upon Heart Stopper by RJ Samuel. Samuel is an Irish based author from Galway.
Heart Stopper ticks all the right boxes for me.

If you love mystery then read this book. If you love twists and turns that keep you guessing to the end read this book. If you are not already passionate about the Irish landscape you will be when you read this book. If you are a romantic read this book. If you yearn for strong characters and dialogue that leaps off the page, read this book!

There are already many excellent reviews about Heart Stopper on Amazon and Goodreads. There is little more I can add to the eloquent, well-expressed reviews except to say buy the book! You won't regret it...

RJ's descriptions bring the reader into the novel so that you feel every bump in the road and your heart races along with the fears of the main character. This is a wonderful debut novel and I can't wait to read RJ's next one. I have read a number of short stories by this author and know there's lots more thrilling rides to come.

A well paced mystery and a love story, set in the gorgeous landscapes and current economic realities of Ireland (Connemara). The Medical field of research/industry and clinical operations on heart-stimulating devices (aka pacemakers), very skilfully and just as clearly described, serves as background-and foundations-for this most original and captivating adventure, where the reader's heart is put to severe test, following the heroines (Priya the scientist, Reyna the executive and her mother Catherine, the healer) on their path to discovering the actual cause of their respective boss, brother, and son, Daniel's death, and the true reasons for which it occurred.
This won't be done without a few heart-stopping twists and more-or-less innocent casualties.

... even had to check my own heartbeat at the end, as the denouement unfold! :o

I'm getting to love Ireland more and more with each of this author's books.

An exciting medical thriller perfectly set in Galway, West of Ireland . I'm familiar with the writings of RJ Samuels ,-an ability to intelligently tackle issues of race ,gender ,romance,sexual orientation,outsider and cultural aspects while delivering a rollicking fast paced story, mark this debut novelist's work.
After reading this novel , you have to ask- why has it not been done before? The ingredients have always been there, but in this novel there is a fresh approach to combining them in a manner which traverses genres, refusing to be narrowly pigeonholed.
There's plenty nitty detail here too for tech fans giving a fascinating insight into the medical pacemaker device world.Glimpses of Indian culture and a changing Ireland enrich the backdrop to this thoroughly enjoyable, unputdownable novel.
It is hoped it is the first of many to come.

People connected to the Heart Clinic are dying. The technician who assisted in writing the codes for the defibrillators is suspicious. Finding answers to this mystery is her top priority.

The characters are complex, the nature of their families and work brings depth to their interactions. I found it extremely interesting, moving and fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed it and didn't want it to end. I will read more by this author.

This is the second R.J. Samuel' s book I've read and found engrossing. A woman lost in grief stumbles on a murder and while dealing with loss and betrayal, solves a murder mystery and discovers love. Skilled in her writing, R. J. tells a tale of suspense and murder while her wonderful characters deal with their emotional foibles. As I discovered much to my delight, her descriptions of Ireland be it a pub or a cottage make you feel as if you're experiencing it yourself. It's a thought provoking book from a writer who consistently delivers a fine story. Grab a seat in a cozy chair and settle in for a very good read!

Priya is, what can I say... a wonderfully drawn, heart blind heroine! Don't miss reading about her! The story itself has thought provoking, real world terrifying implications.
If you are like me you will be hooked by RJ Samuel's writing. She is a perceptive, painterly story teller who continues to write rich, beautifully crafted, creative novels that satisfy both intellect and heart. I have just downloaded her most recent, 'A Place Somewhere', and can't wait to start reading!

This book was beautifully written with exciting characters and twists in the plot. It kept me guessing ‘till the end. Also the description of Irish landscape made feel the wind in my hair and I could smell the fresh sea air while reading this book. Great mystery/ love story with some interesting science in it.
