Product description

About the Author

Until three years ago, Lynette was a busy English teacher, running her own department in a large comprehensive school just outside London. She gave up her career in education to focus on her writing, thus fulfilling her lifelong dream. Her first novel, The Apple Tree, won the grand prize in Prism Book Groups' (formerly Inspired Romance) inaugural writing competition and this was subsequently published in December 2011. Two further contemporary romances followed in 2012 (Wishful Thinking and Shopping for Love). In Loving Hate, her first romantic suspense, appeared last November courtesy of Muse It Up Publications. More recently, she has also published a short sci-fi story, Surveillance, with her son as co-writer, a psychological thriller, Killing Jenna Crane (January 2013) and a ghost story/women's fiction, Unworkers (June 2013). Lynette lives with her family in an early Victorian cottage in a picturesque Surrey village and when not writing or reading, loves catching up with her friends, the cinema and theatre; dabbling with exotic cooking or trying to make her rather wild garden and the family's eccentric cat behave nicely.

Format: Paperback
Of all the books I have reviewed in recent weeks, this is hands-down the best. Indeed, the writing is so assured and professional that I suspect the author has another, successful career under a different pen name, just like the author protagonist.

Ellis, from whose point of view we experience the story, is torn between three women - the loving Chloe, the irresistible Emily, and his own series character, Jenna, of whom he is getting tired even though she is the foundation of his success.

For the first half of the book the reader can see that he is riding for a fall, deserves it in fact, and I kept reading on in morbid fascination, not seeing any good outcome ahead. The end was not as terrible for Ellis as I had expected, and I applaud the author's compassion with her own creations.

As a sometime writer myself, some of the subject matter was especially interesting for me - how the media and the public can very quickly destroy a hard-won reputation, and that works are not judged on their own merits, but conflated with the author and his/her most stupid aspects. That responding to emails in the heat of passion, or meeting the press unprepared, is fatal. Also, how creativity and relationships can interfere with each other to a near-disastrous degree.

I enjoyed the book for many reasons, and can recommend it wholeheartedly.

When novelist Ellis Crawford meets the girl of his dreams, the beautiful, utterly perfect Emily, he is prepared to do anything for her. And I mean anything. He is even prepared to kill Jenna Crane. Not that Jenna Crane is a real person, exactly. She is a figment of his imagination, the popular heroine of his highly successful series.
He abandons his old friends and for the first time in his life is ready to commit to one woman. Why then does his life begin to dip dangerously out of control?

Fans of Lynette Sofras may be surprised by this story. All her novels are more than just romance, but this one is even more. It is as much a novel of psychological suspense as a love story, and it takes you deep into the mind of a haunted man.

I think it is her best yet. Beautifully-written, as I have come to expect from this author, with superb characterisation. But what makes it stand out is the sheer originality of the plot.

Lynette Sofras is definitely an author to watch out for.

I started reading this with no idea of what to expect and was happily reading it and enjoying discovering his passion for his new love alongside his wavering guilt for his ex. I wasn't entirely sure where it was heading and just thought perhaps he would finally give in to his guilt and apologise to his ex or maybe he would decide to go along with Emily's idea to kill off his heroine and in the process, lose his agent and all the money and end up in poverty not knowing what to do.

What actually happened completely surprised me. The unexpected twist to the plot had me fascinated and having to recount earlier events to unpick the plot and find the clues. The clues are there, but so subtly woven into the main body of the story that I had no idea they were there at all.

Lynette Sofras is undeniably a talented author and I always enjoy her stories. This does take a different path to her usual stories and it is not so much a romance, so if you're reading it looking for her usual romantic flair, you might have a bit of a shock. Nonetheless, Lynette still employs her talent for creating believable characters and an interesting plot and there are some romantic parts to it. I think this and her last short story co-written by her son, which was a sci-fi story, shows that Lynette is not limited to one genre. She can put her hand to whatever takes her fancy and produce the same quality of work that we are used to with her romance stories.

The latest novel from the increasingly successful Lynette Sofras is a bit of a departure from the contemporary romance which has been her trademark style up to now. Killing Jenna Crane is a psychological romance with a twist of suspense which keeps the reader hooked from the first page. The central character, the writer Ellis Crawford, is a modern man with a contemptuous view of women which is crying out for correction (at least from the viewpoint of this female reader!) and he certainly gets his comeuppance but not at all in the way readers might expect - which is where the skill in plot construction shows very clearly. Despite his flaws Ellis is the kind of man readers can relate to and understand because he is very human and knows his own faults, even if he chooses not to correct them until later in the novel. The other characters are well drawn, especially the two women who offer him a tantalising glimpse of a loving future but who are effectively contrasted to show Ellis two very different options to choose from. Family tensions and essential background details are skilfully interwoven into the narrative so that they never become intrusive but provide realistic psychological triggers for the actions of the characters; the scene where Ellis makes a disastrous appearance on a breakfast television show is comic in itself but even funnier viewed in retrospect when the reasons for his behaviour are explained.

I am reluctant to explain too much about the plot so as not to spoil the ending. However I definitely suggest that you read Killing Jenna Crane if you are looking for strong, imaginative writing which hooks you in and leads you inexorably to a satisfying but unexpected conclusion.
