A delight to read. Full of laughter and tears. --Katie Fforde
~Nothing soothes the soul quite like a well-crafted romance. This novel revolutionises a genre familiar to Romantic Novelist Association members (such as Moorcroft) by subverting a great many romfic clichés. Sure there's plenty of conflict, and romantic stuff happens with a good heat level, but all the main characters are given equal weight: no objectification of besotted heroine by brooding hero .... This isn't just romance, this is literary Viagra.~ --The Woman Writer Magazine for The Society of Women Writers & Journalists
~Moorcroft writes a thoroughly engaging, utterly believable, occasionally moving, often funny tale; with just the right amount of sauciness where some over spice, Moorcroft gets the balance spot on. Chic lit can often be predictable, unrealistic in it's over romantic portrayal of the relationship between men and women and worse: entirely dependent on the rampant sex scenes. But with Moorcroft, or at least, with Starting Over, you get the sense that the blossoming relationship in all its little foibles, nuances and problems is the real core of the novel. Starting Over is pure self indulgence. And maybe it was just me, but don't worry if you shed a little tear at the end, we won't tell if you don't.~ --The Truth About Books - Honest Reviews about Real Books.
