Product Description

When friendship becomes love, two people must face their greatest fear – being hurt again… The powerful besteller from the country’s number one storyteller.

Luke Hammond: handsome, rich, charismatic, cursed by private tragedy. Amy Atkinson: humble and kind with a good – but wounded – heart. When they meet by chance, a spark of love takes hold of their hearts.

But neither are sure that they can dare to love again. And what of Luke's public life, hidden from Amy? The owner of a large factory, he is a pillar of the community, married – though in name only. Amy is torn between her head and her heart, but her sense of honour is paramount – and when she discovers his true identity, she is thrown into even greater turmoil.

Then disaster strikes and the future looks troubled indeed ….

More About the Author

Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, one of ten children. At the age of sixteen, Josephine met and married her husband Ken, and had two sons. When the boys started school, she decided to go to college and eventually gained a place at Cambridge University. She was unable to take this up as it would have meant living away from home, but she went into teaching - and started to write her first full-length novel. She won the 'Superwoman of Great Britain' Award, for which her family had secretly entered her, at the same time as her novel was accepted for publication.

3.0 out of 5 stars My review of Live The Dream 22 Feb 2005
Although I am a GREAT fan of Josephine Cox and have all her books, for the first time I was a little disapointed. The book starts very well written but at the end seems VERY rushed and crammed and leaves some unanswered questions.
Not the best of Josephines books.

2.0 out of 5 stars A little rushed 8 Jun 2008
This was only the second book that i had read by Josephine, the first being 'The Journey' - I was on holiday and could not get access to the sequel to it (which was quite frustrating) so i decided to read 'Live the Dream' - I felt that the book, although very well written, was really rushed at the end, almost as if she had got very bored of that story and wanted to get onto her next one. I am just hoping that the third book that i read by Josephine will give me a satisfactory ending otherwise, i may give up altogether.
