Review

  • "So well crafted in the style of Nicholas Sparks. Intense, with tight writing in a fast-paced and engaging romance." ~~Readers Favorite
  • "The unexpected surprises and emotional encounters of this novel keep the reader enthralled until the very last page... - an excellent read for one who doubts the power of love at first sight." ~~GoodbooksToday.com 
  • "Some of (the lovers') particular trials are pretty unusual and make for an entertaining read." ~~San Francisco Book Review
  • "If you are seeking a romance novel with more of a life story than a romance--with a few love scenes and a few twists and turns--this book should really be on your reading list. " ~~ A Mama's Corner Of The World
  • "How can you not love a novel with an underlying theme that intelligence and strength are traits men can and do admire in a woman?" ~~ Olio By Marilyn
  • "Unlike anything I expected...three-dimensional characters....strugglesare very real....I enjoyed the writing style. It was new, different and refreshing tohave a literary spin on the romance genre." ~~ Bookaholic Ramblings
  • "....the book could've been ripped straight out of everyday life. Ittells a love story the way it might have really happened, not overlyflowerish or overly feel-good like you may expect from romance novels.I actually liked that the most about this book.' ~~ Cassidy Crimson's Blog

From the Author

Delectable Dishes in Hello, My Love!

Food plays a more prominent role in Hello, My Love! than it does in the 19th-century romance novels (notably Pride and Prejudice, North and South) which inform the characterization, style, and plot of the novel.

In 19th-century England, when people did not yet have movies, television, theme parks, and such to entertain them, the main source for pleasant distraction and socializing with others were dinners and balls (where food, of course, was often served). So, the main protagonists of novels of the period often met, talked, flirted, and found themselves falling in love at a dinner or at a ball.   But, as important as such convivial occasions are in P&P and N&S, not much is devoted to describing the meals that are served.

In Hello, My Love!, Elise, tired and sleepy, dumps her uneaten felafel on her coffee table next to a folder of paperwork she has brought home.  The next day, Greg and Elise meet at dinner in an Indian restaurant where she orders a plate of  tandoori lamb and a glass of mango lassi.

As in P&P and N&S, dinners and dinner parties figure in the development of "attachment" between Elise and Greg. At one dinner to which Greg receives a spur-of-the-moment invitation, Elise's mother serves a Moroccan tagine.

At a little village near Aix-en-Provence, they dine on roast and ratatouille baked in a 17th-century stone oven. The ratatouille is probably garnished with herbes de Provence. While many recipes exist for this quintessentially Provençalmix, the melange that gets the French government's assurance of quality, (Label Rouge) is quite precise: 26% savory, 26% oregano, 26% rosemary, 19% thyme, and 3% basil.

At the wedding celebration, the piece de resistance is a sucking pig, roasted for hours to yield crispy skin.

A few other scenes involve food and drink to help define mood or setting, as well as activity.

The saying, We are what we eat, is ofteninterpreted in physical health terms. In Hello, My Love!, the food (international flavors) and drink offer a glimpse into what kind of people the main characters are (open and exposed to thingsexotic or usually unfamiliar to Americans)  and subtlysituate where the story happens (a cosmopolitan city).
