This is the second of Jenny Harper’s novels I’ve read, and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the first, even though it’s very different.

'Loving Susie' is not a straightforward romance, although love is at its heart. Every member of the Wallace family finds new love, gets entangled in a fateful relationship or struggles to maintain an established one. It’s a story about a family, and about what happens when secrets surface and trust is undermined. And, as in 'Face the Wind and Fly', the heroine is under pressure from other directions too – this time because she’s an outspoken politician and because her family problems make her take her eye off the ball.

There are big issues woven throughout, and Jenny Harper is great at engaging you with her characters and their problems. And her writing, again, is a delight

Like a previous reviewer, this is also the second book I've read by Jenny Harper, and loved this one even more. There is everything I like about a novel in her writing: family, relationships, current affairs ... things the author seems well versed in. I loved the Scottish settings, and could visualise many of the locations in the book ... Edinburgh and Holyrood and Mull, which added to my enjoyment. Looking forward to reading her third book, and also hopefully to many more to come.

Secrets and Lies

Is it ever justifiable to keep a secret from a close family member? This is the dilemma at the heart of this first-rate novel by Jenny Harper.
The secret Archie is hiding from his wife, Susie, is one which, once revealed, affects the whole family and has far-reaching consequences for all their lives.
What starts out as a simple quest gradually erodes the foundations of Susie’s marriage and their children find the comfortable world they have taken for granted is about to fall apart.
This conflict in Susie’s life is set against the background of her high powered job which makes its own demands on her time and her inner resources, especially when her career is threatened with disaster.
The powerful themes of this novel are carried by well developed characters, drawn with a deftness of touch which makes them entirely believable. The way in which the various episodes of the story are inter-woven byt the writer make this a real page-turner, one difficult to put down.
I liked the use of the present tense, not an easy format to handle, as it gave this story an immediacy well-suited to the content.
A novel to be highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Susie Wallace's world is thrown into turmoil when she discovers her husband has been keeping a secret from her for the past thirty years. Her son and daughter are affected and Susie's relationship with her children is strained to breaking point. Her career as a politician comes under pressure when, on a point of principle, she refuses to toe the party line, while in the background the Press are digging for dirt.
As in her previous book, 'Face the Wind and Fly', Jenny Harper takes us on a rollercoaster ride of emotional trauma as Susie struggles desperately to save her marriage and get her world back together. The underlying theme in both these novels is how a strong woman reacts when family relationships are in danger of breaking down and work-related pressure is mounting - and the author handles the subject with an expert touch.
Loving Susie is a novel that's hard to put down - I hope there will be many more to come from Jenny.

Perhaps by saying this is a fantastic, and gripping story.
And adding that it was spoiled for me because it was in the present tense which I don't like reading. However I wanted to read the story, and I did. (The not liking books in the present is a very personal thing, and it doesn't reflect on how much I enjoyed the actual story. I hope that makes sense.)
Jenny Harper clearly knows her subject and it shines through, which is perfect.
I would have like to know more about certain parts of the plot which were left up in the air, but then maybe that was on purpose? I know it's all too easy to go off the point. I can only I hope that (or those) books are written soon. ( though preferably not in the first person :) )
Would I reccomend this? Oh yes, even if you're like me. Because not to read it would mean missing something very special.
