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.
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.
Can Ellis find redemption or redeem himself? The novel ends on an appropriate, hopeful note but not all shadows are dispelled for in the end it is up to Ellis himself - he will reap what he sows.
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.
