The structure of this novel demonstrated a concept that was new to me, and I found it worked exceedingly well as a way of comparing and contrasting the heroine's life as a writer with the exciting times of her make-believe characters. Not surprisingly for someone with such a fertile mind, Helen likes to compare the guys she meets with her imaginary heroes. Not surprising, too, are the number of identical character traits of the author Helen and her creation Annie, who are each romantic and unworldly. Helen's discovery of the power of dressing as a tool of attraction rings true, as does her other behaviours and attitudes. She is a likeable person who shows her vulnerabilities.
'Hel's Heroes' is an entertaining book: a real page-turner that brings a smile to one's face: highly recommended for those who are looking for something that is light, fun and highly readable.
Protagonist Helen McFadden is a historical romance writer and after the unfortunate demise of her two parents has become something of a recluse. The only bright light in her cupboard is that she is successful at what she does.
In love with the heroes she creates she realises she is missing out in life, and it isn’t until her friend Sandy interferes that she discovers she’s missing out on a true love relationship herself. Enter Pete Montgomery, a childhood school friend she barely remembers but seems intent on staying around Helen (Hel) as she rediscovers her life.
After being caught up in her world of fiction, Hel must learn the most important lesson – she mustn’t mix fantasy with real love.
Running parallel to Hel’s own voyage of discovery, Hel writes the final chapters to her latest romantic novel, which takes place in another century. I enjoyed the parallels of the two women – similar and yet at the same time completely different.
Very readable and recommended.
