This review is from: Burning Embers (Kindle Edition)
Burning Embers is a romantic delight and an absolute must-read for anyone looking to escape to a world of colour, beauty, passion and love. I was recommended this book by a friend at my book club and I have to say, it was a wonderful discovery. I was utterly transported and gripped from the outset.

The story follows Coral Sinclaire, a pretty and naive young photographer, who returns to her childhood home in Kenya after her father's death to claim her inheritance and rediscover the spirit of Africa which had so intoxicated her as a child. From the outset all is not what it seems, the scene is set for intrigue, secrets, black magic and vendettas. Of course, there is also a very strong love interest throughout in the form of Rafe: handsome, strong and compelling but with a dark past which Coral yearns to uncover.

What I really loved about this book was the way that Hannah Fielding paints such a vivid picture - not only of the characters, their hopes, fears and dreams, but also the place where all the drama unfolds. For those who can't go to Kenya in reality, this has got to be the next best thing. It is clear that the author has a real passion and understanding of the country. Just thinking about it now I can visualise the coves, gardens, villas she describes and I long to go there again.

There is a wonderful sensitivity to the way Hannah Fielding writes - almost old fashioned, like the books of Victoria Holt which I so enjoyed in my teens. I just can't wait to read her next book - I hope one is coming out soon!
