More About the Author

Award-winning author Diane Chamberlain, was born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, and attended Glassboro State University. She also lived for many years in both San Diego and northern Virginia, where she still resides.
Diane received her master's degree in clinical social work from San Diego State University.

Prior to her writing career, she was a medical social worker at Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego and Children's Hospital in Washington, D.C. She also was a psychotherapist in private practice in Alexandria, Virginia., working primarily with adolescents. Diane's background in psychology and her work in hospitals has given her a keen interest in understanding the way people tick, as well as the background necessary to create real, living, breathing characters.

Several years ago, Diane was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which has changed the way she works: she occasionally types using voice recognition software. She feels fortunate that her arthritis is not more severe and that she is able to enjoy everyday activities as well as keep up with a busy travel schedule.

When not writing, Diane enjoys fixing up her house, playing with her three-legged Bernese Mountain Dog, Bruin, getting together with her friends and grown stepdaughters, and singing with an interfaith gospel choir.

Diane is the author of the bestselling Midwife's Confession. Her new book Keeper of the Light is out in January 2012

3.0 out of 5 stars Not one of her best 22 Jan. 2013
By GenieB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Have read most of Diane Chamberlain's books and had not found one yet that I didn't really enjoy, I had looked forward to this one being available since finishing the first of the trilogy "Keeper of the Light". I have got to say that I was a bit disappointed,this is definitely not one her best. The story, although it takes us on from the last book and contains some of the great characters from that one, is not as good as the first and I found it rather tame but that does not stop me looking forward to reading the last one in the trilogy due out later this year.

I have read Keeper of the Light and this is the superb sequel to this. I love Diane Chamberlain's books. They tell a great story almost like a whodunnit. She and Jodi Picoult are my 2 favourite authors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kiss River 2 Mar. 2014
By Wendy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the second of the Trilogy but it certainly was not as good as good as the first and cost me three times as much! (Although it still wasn't overpriced as books go). It took a long time to to understand why Gina was so intent on getting the light recovered from the sea bed and when it finally was retrieved, it was rather disappointing after the big build up. How Gina could even consider that retrieving the light would solve her money problems was a bit unrealistic as well. In fact the whole storyline from that point of view was far fetched and did not make the reader feel sympathetic to the problem because so little time was given in the book to what was supposed to be of earth shattering importance to that part of the story. More should have been made of this I think.

It was good to catch up with the main characters of book one and also to get a more in depth view of Mary Poor's early life , using the diary was a nice touch. I thought there was also too much in-depth narrative about the previous book as well. If readers need or want to know, they will buy the book - it can be very irritating for those that have already invested time in reading the first book we don't want a rehash of what's gone before. I will read the third in the trilogy just to tie up the loose ends but can't say I will be as eager as I was to buy this one.

Wonderful to follow on from Keeper of the Light Trilogy & be able to continue following the lives of the characters of Kiss River.
Makes you feel part of everything, laughing & crying with the characters as they feel alive & real as you read the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review for Kiss River 17 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It was only after I had started reading this story that I realised there was actually a prequel. That said, if you do not read the first book in the series you won't be missing out on anything really. The book is typical romance genre, but perhaps not as sugary.

It follows Gina on her journey to Kiss River and her subsequent fight to raise the lens of an old lighthouse from the sea. Gina has a secret as to why she wants the lens raised so badly, but she is keeping that under wraps. Pretty early on she befriends the occupants of the house beside the lighthouse - a brother and sister - becoming romantically involved with the brother. We find out Gina's secret around the middle of the book and I think this really surprised me, it certainly was not what I expected it to be.

The book jumps back and forth from the present day to the 1940′s, wartime in the USA. This part of the book acts like a diary from this era and the author of the diary has an intriguing secret too.

The book was a decent enough read, despite not having read the first in the series I did not feel there were gaps in the story that would have been filled had I read the prequel. The author keeps the suspense going right through the book, which is always good, and I felt quite satisfied with the conclusion.

I will give this book 4 stars. ****

4.0 out of 5 stars KISS RIVER 12 Oct. 2014
By Amanda TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gina Higgins arrives at Kiss River claiming to be a lighthouse historian,brother and sister Clay and Lacey O'Neill who live in the keeper's house offer to take her in. Although a friendship transpires between the three of them Gina is hiding a very big secret, she needs money to collect her adopted daughter from an orphanage, a mission that brings her to Kiss River.
A good read and sequel to Keeper Of The Light, although in my opinion not one of the best novels that this author has written.
