Product description

Review

"Page-turning and thoroughly entertaining. I loved it!" -- Katie Fforde I always love stories where we are introduced to a group of very different personalities but whom all have the same drive and desire. The news room at the 'Hailesbank Herald' was the perfect setting and it was these characters and their little quirks, their relationships with each other, and their desperation to keep their jobs going, was what made this book a real winner. I adored Daisy, and she was the most relatable heroine I have encountered for a long time. Hopelessly in love with her ex-boyfriend who left her for another woman, her situation had me connecting with her so deeply, that I really felt for her in every moment when her hope was crushed within her. One of the main things that made this book such a great one was how deeply I connected to Daisy, not just as a character but as a real person. Her utter loneliness in the later parts of the book really struck a chord with me, and I was even reduced to tears at one point, understanding and empathising with her loneliness and her desire to find a place for herself. Ben was not so much a traditional romantic hero, but nevertheless he was the perfect man for Daisy, something that made me root for him throughout the book, even when I didn't agree with some of his actions. His feelings for Daisy were so lovely to read, but I felt my heart break when he decides to forget about her by entangling himself with her roommate. My heart ached for Daisy, and I wanted to smack Ben around the head for being so, albeit unknowingly, insensitive, and in essence causing Daisy to feel more and more isolated, even in her own home. It was little things like this that really made this book a great read, as I felt connected with the characters and affected by their own problems and mistakes. I loved the journey that Jenny Harper took me on with these characters, and I really loved seeing Daisy's development when she leaves her small town and tries to find herself. The strong characters in all the members of the news team made them feel like colleagues of my own, each known for a particular characteristic, and it made me feel as though I was leaving my own work friends as I finished the book. This was a fun, heart-warming but also emotional story that had me thinking about the characters long after I'd finished it. -- Sorcha O'Dowd Amazon Review

I'm a sucker for books featuring gaggles of characters, each once is as quirky as the next, where scandal and gossip reign and someone always knows your business. Maximum Exposure has all this in spades as you are plunged into the world of a failing newspaper. The story takes on a life of its own as Jenny Harper gives readers an emotional, yet often humorous, glimpse into the lives of the uninspired Hailesbank Herald staff.

Daisy is our protagonist and, as the blurb says, she really is adorable. After facing a lifetime of criticism from her father, Daisy repeatedly seeks a childlike comfort that makes her character instantly vulnerable and endearing to the reader. So convinced on the solution to her broken heart, she's oblivious to what's in front of her, and I genuinely felt for her at times. Her worries about the newspaper closing are real but the situation proves to be one of life's monumental turning points.

Ben is a lovely, and his obvious desire for Daisy is heartwarming - he's exactly the kind of man she should be with. The skillful uncertainty of a romantic relationship between them is what drives the pages to turn and is the reason I became so involved in the story and the characters' lives. There are a few unexpected twists and turns, which I loved, and towards the end I had no idea how everything was going to pan out.

Come the final word, I had a bittersweet smile on my face; things wrapped up nicely but I was definitely going to miss the hustle and bustle of the news desk!

MAXIMUM EXPOSURE by Jenny Harper, Accent Press
Maximum Exposure is Jenny Harper’s third novel in her Heartlands’ Series. I bought a paperback copy, but it is available in kindle. Daisy Irvine, the main character, is described as adorable but scatter-brained. She works as a newspaper photographer on a local paper and the novel’s dramatic opening pages are set in that world. The major love interest is Ben Gillies who was a school friend and who returns to the area when his relationship breaks up. They are supported by a host of believable and mostly likeable characters.
Jenny Harper achieves that difficult feat of setting her characters up against life rather than malice aforethought and the writing is fluidly seductive throughout. Daisy is a person sleep-walking through her own life when the novel begins and even the shocking opening pages don’t jolt her out of that, but little by little our heroine comes to understand how the answers to her difficulties are within her own grasp.
East Lothian is delightfully evoked and those of us who know it well must enjoy the descriptions and observations. Equally, the life-blood of a local paper, toilets and sausages, is used to tragi-comic effect and is universal. The best of the series so far in my view. Roll on the next… Anne Stenhouse

What I loved about this book is the approachability and ordinary of its characters which made it incredibly easy to identify with the cast. Although, admittedly, I wasn’t too keen on Daisy (the main heroine) in the beginning. I didn’t like the way she was obsessed with her ex-boyfriend Jack and also found her slightly too naive, but this changed very quickly and I found myself rooting for her, hoping her character would evolve during the book (which is certainly did).

There were some great plot lines going on throughout the novel. Some of them predictable, but others took me by surprise. I also liked the relatively big character cast. Next to Daisy’s and Ben’s (Daisy’s childhood friend) stories the reader learns a lot about their surrounding characters such as Daisy’s and Ben’s immediate family and their work colleagues/friends from The Hailesbank Herald they both worked for.

The only little problem I had with this book was the ending. I thought the different chapters were well written and thought out, but the actual ending itself was rather aprubt and felt rushed to me. However, I’d still be really interested in reading more by this author.

Maximum Exposure is a great story about problems a lot of people will have to face at one stage or another during their lives such as grief, heartbreak, redundancy and self confidence issues.
