5 Stars! "MollyHarper" is no flightycotton-candy novel. It's intense, tumultuous, and contemplative. It forces thereader to delve into the depths of their heart and examine the actions of theirpast. The characters and plot lines are vibrant, full, and believable--and notjust the main ones....It's absolutely superb andcreates the unique ebbs and flows of the adventurous tide her novel rides upon.It's quite remarkable. It's so good you don't notice it. And that's the point." Sofia St.Angeles InD'tale Magazine March 2015

From the Author
Q&A with Emelle Gamble about DUETS(from Fresh Fiction)
In DUETS, movie starMolly Harper is on the verge of marrying a man who has swept her off her feet,thought perhaps hasn't swept all her feelings for her first love away. AnneSullivan, happily married for twenty-five years, is fighting to hold onto theman she loves, and hold off a confrontation that could shatter her family'simage of what they are. DUETS confronts a past secret thatties these two women's lives together, just as chance events turn Molly andAnne's worlds upside down.
Q: Why this story of these two women and these two men?
A: As a reader, I've always loved parallel narratives, wheretwo people's or two family's lives are careening toward one another and thenmerge. As a writer, I'm always intrigued at examining the ebb and flow ofrelationships and of the suspense that comes from the unforeseen,uncontrollable events that change all the character's best laid plans. In otherwords, Molly Harper and Cruz Morales, and Harry and Anne Sullivan were the yinand yang of love in my head, so I decided to put them in a story together andshow these two sides of love.
Q: You give Molly a very tough choice between first loveCruz Morales and new love Ben Delmonico. Do you like triangles?
A: Adore them. I think we've all lived through being one sideof one, and I think being torn between two loves, two lifestyles, two men thatfulfill different needs is the most challenging storyline there is for a woman.
Q: But doesn't someone always go home a loser in a trianglestory?
A: Someone always goes home. But for how long? I'veoften wondered "but what happens next..." when a favorite story or novellaends. I love multi-part books, and continuing characters. In DUETS,I wrote about the most dramatic 'turning point' moment in the lives oftwo couples. In Molly Harper, we find out what happens three years afterthose decisions were made, and how Molly, Cruz and the Sullivan family areholding up.
