Editorial Reviews


It's a comedy of errors, false starts, and false assumptions...Well done, dear author, well done! A fabulous book, no doubt. I must now go get the others in this series -  Sandra @ My Fiction Nook
I appreciated how the book incorporated several aspects of gay life that aren't necessarily discussed - the "it didn't work" marriage, children from the marriage, and being closeted to your own kids - Gay Book Reviews

JL Merrow's talent for mixing humour and fun with the more serious storyline is emotional, funny, sexy romance - Claire Margaret Potterton, Divine Magazine
I could so understand Mark and his attitudes it was uncanny...No chance of being carefree and out without facing a whole load of bigotry and the rest... I just loved how JL Merrow deals with the whole subject. Realistic, compassionate and endears the reader to her characters immediately - Mark Wills, Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews
I'm still smiling. This is one of those stories that just make me all warm and fuzzy. It's like hot cocoa (with tiny marshmallows) on a cold day -  Gay Guy Reading
A marvelous addition to the series! It had its moments of hilarity, but also bittersweet times, and I rejoiced in each of them in equal measure...Thank you, J.L., for more from my favorite village - Rainbow Book Reviews

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again.

She writes (mostly) contemporary gay romance and mysteries, and is frequently accused of humour. Her novel Slam! won the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best LGBT Romantic Comedy, and several of her books have been EPIC Awards finalists, including Muscling Through, Relief Valve (the Plumber’s Mate Mysteries) and To Love a Traitor.

JL Merrow is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, International Thriller Writers, Verulam Writers and the UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet organising team.
