Is This Love?
on 26 October 2013
I am a huge fan of Sue Moorcroft's books and I was not in the least bit disappointed with her latest.
Is This Love? follows Tamara Rix on an incredible journey through which she battles guilt, love and betrayal with a huge dollop of lust! Tamara Rix is a yoga instructor and, after making the huge decision to stay in her home town of Middledip when her long term boyfriend, Max, moves away for a new job, she is intrigued when she is offered a new and mysterious job opportunity herself. Jed Cassius has returned to his home town with his step brother, Manny, and ruffles a few feathers when he makes a revelation about his father - he was the driver of the car that hit Tarama's sister Lyddie, causing permanent brain damage and disability. This does not make him a welcome visitor in the Rix household.
Plagued with guilt, Tamara doesn't take the decision lightly to accept the job offer that Jed proposes to her. But she does, and boy does it bring with it a hell of a lot more than she anticipated!
Tamara is a strong, independent, lovable character with plenty on her shoulders. It is admirable how she tackles life with a disabled sibling and she works her butt off, which in itself is a likeable quality. Jed, although initially seen to be the bad guy, creates a genuine feeling of love towards him as the story progresses. He is not afraid of hard work himself and is, by no means, anything less than gorgeous. He has a background - who doesn't? - but everything isn't as it seems with him.
This book has fantastically well drawn out characters, a brutally honest but incredibly well handled plot line and amazingly well written scenes.
