About the Author

Since beginning a comprehensive writing course with The Writers Bureau in 2001, my articles and short stories have been published in a variety of magazines in the UK. In 2005 two of my short stories were included in quite different anthologies. The first story was in an International Anthology, published in June, while the second appeared in Café Ole - Too Hot To Handle, which was launched in Glasgow. My first novel, The Trojan Project, a thriller, was published at the end of May 2008. Divorcees.Biz came next, followed by Only Twelve Days. Both of these novels are romances. I also review books for newbooks a bi-monthly magazine informing the public of new books on the shelves. I am a member of the Society of Authors, the Society of Women Writer's and Journalists and The Edinburgh Writer's Club, as well as being an Associate Member of NAWG (National Association of Writers Groups).

I downloaded a copy of Divorcees.Biz a while ago and to be fair to the author, Eileen Thornton, this is not a genre I would normally read. Here are my pluses. I think the cover is appropriate, especially when the reader gets to know the background/setting about four divorcees who set up a dating service - staring with champagne and ending the story with a final glass. Also, this is a story for women, so the colour is perfect.
The manuscript is well edited, and the story started off with high expectations and lots of fluent dialogue - some a bit caustic though. This brings me to my overall feeling for the story. I cannot say that it was a page turner for me and I read the book in stages. However, if you are on holiday and want a bit of light on-and-off reading, you might enjoy it.

This is a fun book. Lighthearted and very enjoyable. I would recommend it. I read it on my online Kindle app and couldn't wait to read more - work got put on the backshelf!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was such a pleasure to read and great fun too.

An excellent story line with an unusual theme.

It starts with a group of friends who were all divorced and each hoping to meet the man of their dreams, started a dating agency. The journey the author takes you on with these ladies makes this a very worthwhile read and will have you smiling in parts.

I loved it and definitely recommend it.

A good romantic story with a difference with its fun and humour showing the modern day woman making waves in the world.

Each of the women have distinct characters and fit well into the scheme of things. They each have a goal and we follow their journeys with a smile.

A light-hearted read.

Having just finished this lovely book I feel bereft! Surely the mark of a good story is that you don't want it to end!
It was a departure from my usual genre but the intriguing title made me curious. How glad I am that my curiosity got the better of me.
Divorcees.biz is a delightful story of four very different women making a new start in both their personal and business lives.Their idea of starting up a dating agency for divorcees is inspired. Each of the friends have a desperate need for their venture to be successful, not just for financial benefit but for personal reasons.
The story starts with the opening of the agency and the ensuing pandemonium. It is full of fun and froth but there is also a poignancy that underlies their venture.
A totally different read from Ms Thornton's previous book 'The Trojan Project' it is equally entertaining and enthralling.
This is a beautifully crafted book possessing that much maligned cliche 'the feel good factor'.

A well written contemporary romance, full of humour and loveliness. I usually prefer my romance stories to have a lot of drama, but this one reads really easily and keeps you entertained. It's perfect if it's cold outside and you're looking for a bit of a laugh and the lovely feeling of warm fuzziness in your heart. Actually I think it'd be great as a summer holiday read too !
The four girls are different to each other, and you get to like them as you get to know them, warts and all. Their journey, that they hope takes them to their happily ever after, is a rather cool ride. Makes me want to open my own dating agency and have fun playing matchmakers (and make megaloads of money in the process!... Oh and why not meet lots of men as well <wink>).

If contemporary romance is your thing, give Divorcees.biz a try. You'll love it.

The book centres on 4 friends who are recently divorced and setting up a new business. The trials and tribulations of setting up this business provides the progress for the storyline, supporting each other through life's ups and downs, as well as the convenience of access to available men! The ladies have their wistful moments (including the classic "why me" which the vast majority of people can identify with) which I felt were the best elements of the novel.

I thought that this book had an interesting twist on the usual chick-lit genre. Not a young single girl, looking for love, but four ladies who have certainly been bitten by their previous relationships. The characters are well-defined and we understand whose husband has played away, whose husband is violent, whose husband [...] etc.

I think the storyline would have benefitted from more characterisation beyond the focus on the one with 'wacky' clothes. I did find the characters plausible but found that 4 felt contrived and it could probably have survived without the side story of Lucy - she was just there to round out the numbers.

I would recommend this to readers who like their fiction full of fun and frolics. It is a fast and straightforward read - it does get you thinking whether you would react in the same way - but not overly challenging.

Disclosure: I received a free e-book from the publisher (SalGad Publishing). This is my fair and impartial review.

Divorcees.biz was the first e-book I have ever purchased, to read on the Kindle I got for Christmas and I'm so glad I chose it. For a start, there's the unusual, quirky plot featuring four divorced women setting up their own upmarket dating agency - I really enjoyed reading about how they did it, especially as I almost set up my own dating agency a few years ago. Having read Eileen's descriptions of the problems faced by her characters, I'm very glad I didn't. The characters themselves, male ones included, are well drawn and I did find myself caring what happened to them. Eileen cleverly kept some twists up her sleeve, to keep us guessing right up to the end of the book. When I'd finished reading, I was left with that feeling of satisfaction one gets from a book which not only has a happy ending, but contains a lot of insight into the fears and feelings of women who have loved and lost, suffered and achieved something with their lives. I look forward to Eileen's next book.
