About the Author

Until two years ago, Lynette spent many years working as a teacher and running the English Department of a busy London secondary school. Prior to that she spent several years living and teaching in Greece. She gave up teaching to focus on her writing and to date has published three contemporary romances: The Apple Tree, Wishful Thinking and Shopping for Love. Her first romantic suspense, In Loving Hate is due for release in October 2012. Lynette currently lives in an early Victorian cottage in a picturesque Surrey village. When she's not reading or writing, she enjoys catching up with friends, the theatre and cinema and occasionally trying to tame her out-of-control garden and the family's anthropophobic cat.

When Jess and her young son, Ben are nearly killed in a high-speed blow-out on the motorway, their escape feels like a miracle. And it seems like another small miracle when, unable to face the rest of her long drive, the roadside rescue man finds a small hotel to take them in, even though it is closed for a few days. And there she find yet another miracle. She meets Chris, the man of her dreams.
It all seems too good to be true! Perhaps she is dreaming or has indeed died and gone to heaven.
But it is really happening and, as is the way of real life, the path of true love does not run smooth. Jess's baggage, in the shape of her young son, is nothing compared to the baggage Chris is carrying. He is bound, not so much by love as by guilt, to the woman who used to play in his band. And she will not let him go easily.

This is Ms Sofras' second novel and it is superb. Her beautiful, articulate prose is a pleasure to read. Her characters live and breathe and her plot is interesting and different. I fell into the story at the first page and did not surface until I'd finished. It left me wanting more and I shall certainly read it again.
Another winner!

The dashingly handsome, unattainable and rich hero; the scheming lover; a menage a trois....what more could you ask for? I bought this on Kindle and within the first 24 hours had got through over half the book. It is one of those novels that you just have to keep reading because you are gripped until you get to the end. Your emotions are wrenched as you feel sympathy, then anger, then disbelief at the unimaginable cruelty of Amber, as she attempts to manipulate all around her. Just when you feel all is lost, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. But I want more from this writer. This is the second book I have read and I now need a sequel to both!

I liked this book just for the author's style and voice, which I enjoy immensely. The heroine, Jess and her son were both likable and believable. But I'm sorry to say I didn't like Christian, even if he was sexy. When he comes to see Jess on New Year's Eve and they finally kiss ("That was unfinished business. It had to be done") they are both obviously smitten. Yet later that night Amber kisses a surprised Christian on camera, and announces their engagement. While that kiss wasn't his fault and Christian has no intention of marrying Amber, there is no excuse for him not to give Jess a heads up about what happened when he texts her later. Instead, he just wishes her a happy New Year, and never mentions it, so Jess is--of course--shocked when she sees the story splashed across the tabloids a week later in the supermarket. I also hated Amber, and the way both Christian and Adam constantly catered to her moods and demands, trying to talk sensibly to a woman who was little more than an insane, vengeful child (even though she had terrible things happen to her, that's no excuse). And what in the world was Christian thinking of when he thought it would be a good idea to have his new love Jess write his autobiography, knowing that she would have to meet one-on-one with Amber? He had to know that Amber was not going to handle it appropriately and that she'd lash out at Jess in jealously.
The ending was very satisfying. :)
Wishful Thinking was wonderfully heartfelt, and I enjoyed it very much, especially scenes like the ones with the "greedy helping of salad" and the "ginormous badgers." :) Sofras somehow manages to have super sexy scenes without any sex description, both a marvel and an inspiration to me (last page of the shower scene right before Chapter 19 is a GREAT example...sigh) :)

Good stuff!

I really liked this book. There were times I had to force my self to put it down. It had so many things that I like in a good story: a strong independant heroin, a dreamy down-to-earth hero, and romantic tension galore! It was a freebie for me, but I would have been perfectly happy had I paid for it.

I recently enjoyed "The Apple Tree" by this author so was keen to read this book. I wasn't disappointed. In fact I enjoyed it even more than her previous story. The hero, Chris, was so believable in his role of famous pop/movie star who was searching for something meaningful away from the glamour of his profession. Finding the unassuming Jess and her son ticked all the boxes for him. Jess's uncertainty about Chris' true feelings was also very realistic even without the meddling of his former girlfriend. His loyalty to his friends was admirable. Jess cannot believe someone like Chris could be interested in such an "ordinary" person as herself and worries she is laying herself and her son open to heartache. Alarmed by whatever power Amber had over Chris that sent him rushing to her side whenever she seemed to beckon, Jess eventually accepts there is no chance at any long term relationship and ends it. Chris' revelation of Amber's hold caught me by surprise. Wondering during the whole story what it might be, I had not considered the explanation given as a possibility. But Chris comes through, destroying Amber's influence over him and convinces Jess of his commitment to her and her son.

Wishful thinking is a touching love story that will pull at your heart strings and keep you captivated until the final page.

The story follows Jess and her son, after they are involved in a horrid car crash. But what Jess soon discovers is that even the worst events in life can bring about an opportunity of a lifetime. In this case she meets the hero Christian. But the couple both have pasts that they can't seem to escape from and need to deal with before they can look forward to a future together.

This is a delightful romance that shows that it is never to late to find true love, and there are no obstances you cannot overcome if you really love someone. A recommended read.
