This is an interesting take on the 'first humans on Mars' theme that is so hot these days in novels, film and television. But the author's spin has it beginning on Earth, years before launch and after an unusual selection process for the "Martian Six" of the "Man on Mars" program. Emma Davis is a reporter from the local Sentinel newspaper who accidentally meets the sensitive Ryan Clarke, one of the 'Six', and in the process of researching and writing her story a friendly relationship develops between them. Outside of the interesting main story where things quickly get complicated on the interpersonal level and within the program, author Cawood adds unexpected dimensions to the story and presents some astronaut training techniques, challenges, and restrictions that could be a primer for real-life space programs. There are also twists and turns that keep the interest, some adult themes, and even some wild unexpected scenes ahead that you may not see coming. A very enjoyable novel with deep characterizations that urge the readers along to its stirring denouement. Highly Recommended. Five UNEXPECTED Stars. (HEROmation.

There is an interesting idea, to finance space expedition from commercials. In my opinion this thread could be more explored, to build some moral dilemmas.
Advantage: simple wording, for those who are learning english :-)
Even though the story takes place in the future it involves elements I can envision happening soon—in my lifetime. So both the narrative and the well-developed characters felt very real to me. And the steady pace kept met anxiously turning the pages.
I know traditional romance novels end with the lovers riding off into the sunset and living happily ever after. But the ending of this book is unique and, though it breaks conventions, it is completely satisfying.
This book is definitely worth your time and money. I highly recommend it.
The developing relationship between Ryan and Emma is a true delight to read; heartwarming, engaging and relatable. The development of each of the characters from start to finish is great; Cawood takes great measures to ensure each character is fleshed out, allowing the readers to truly feel as if they're fellow passengers on this crazy ride. This speaks true for both the main characters and their support systems--Ryan's fellow Martian Six team and Emma's sister.
With plot twists you'll never see coming and a very satisfying conclusion, Love From Mars comes highly recommended.
