The Stars Have Aligned


Two amazing things happened today that indicate that the fates are working with the universe in interesting and dynamic ways to create a perfect world.  The first is that Amazon have launched (finally) a New Adult category.

New Adult on Amazon

And….

Jane Harvey-Berrick’s latest New Adult novel went on sale.

Dangerous to Know & LoveDangerous to Know & Love by Jane Harvey-Berrick

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jane has done it again. This is a really simple love story between two characters who are feisty and fun. There are great complications and challenges for damaged and lonely Daniel and sassy but sensitive Lisanne that come from their friends and families and the judgements that people unintentionally make. There are communication problems and misunderstandings but underlying all if this is a really solid and growing love based on friendship and trust. Jane takes us on a wonderful emotional journey, creating pithy dialogue that will make you laugh and gut-wrenching moments that will make you cry. There are a lot of books that I love but Jane creates stories that wrap around me and make me want to climb inside reading until the bitter end. I was really looking forward to this one and she didn’t disappoint. And just in case you are wavering, Daniel is a Harley-riding musician with tats, piercings, leather and a heart of gold. What are you waiting for?

She included one of my favorite songs too, by Australian band Crowded House which all Kiwis know is really a NZ band that we let them claim.  But Neil Finn is all ours!

And since it all happened on Eurovision weekend, my life is truly complete.🙂
