Another little gem from someone who I'm beginning to regard as the queen of short fiction, Australian author Jenny Schwartz. Like her earlier novelette, DRAWING CLOSER, the newly released MISTAKEN ENGAGEMENT is a power packed read, an emotional, romantic story which will give you all the satisfaction of a romance novel in a smaller package. In today's activity filled lifestyle, it's nice to think that you can still get a satisfying read in a more compact package. As my late, beloved grandmother ...more
As a fellow reviewer put it this book was another little gem ! To me it was more like a diamond glittering in the sun. The story was one that had love and light shining through all the way through to the end.

Yes it is a very short read but what a read! As short as it was it was a read that was delightful, sexy, fun, exciting and powerfully passionate! The plot was one where Saul our hero has been in love with our heroine Grace for as long as he can remember and when she finds herself in a bind h

Mistaken Engagement is short and sweet story by Australian romance author, Jenny Schwartz. Though I haven’t read Drawing Closer (released in December 2012) of which Mistaken Engagement follows on from I had no difficulties in getting into this story.

Mistaken Engagement is set over the Australia Day long weekend which I think was a really great idea as it set the scene in both country and season. I knew I’d be in for a great summer read!

Grace Nguyen is a doctor who works hard and has managed to a
To me Mistaken Engagement by Jenny Schwartz was like sitting down at lunchtime and only reading the best chapters in a book! No unnecessary bog, punchy and to the point.

Surfer Saul and Dr Grace grew up together as a result of their blended families which has given them a close familiarity with each other. Saul rescues Grace from an embarrassing moment at a family function which then starts the ball rolling which causes both them both to start questioning their feelings for each other.

I loved this little romance with an Aussi theme. Set over the Australia Day long weekend with surfing, beach cricket and sandcastles along with the occasional bushfire, the friends to lovers story is very sweet. Saul and Grace have known each other for years. When he steps in to try and save her embarrassment, it starts a chain of events that make for a fun story line with a just a touch of sizzle.

Once again the eBook is loaded with sample reads from the rest of the Escape line. This could get a

I am not sure I love these shorts that are proliferating of late. If poorly done, they can just feel unfinished and when well done, they are never long enough. But if anyone can do them, it's Jenny Schwartz. This was masterfully written. It takes you on a sweet, swooping ride of a romance, leaving you with the feeling of sand in your toes and sun on your skin. My only complaint was that I would have liked it to go longer!

A sweet, sensual and emotional love story. I enjoyed reading how Grace and Saul went from friends connected by the marriage of their respective parents to being a couple.
A quick, sweet love story.

Saul and Grace are step cousins. Grace is in med school and wants to find lasting love. Saul has decided it is time to settle down. Grace thinks she has found the man of her dreams, Ryan and brings him into her life, where he meets her stepsister. The next time she sees Ryan, he and her sister are announcing their engagement. Saul sees how hurt Grace is and announces he and Grace are engaged. Grace flips and the family thinks they are broken up. Saul decides he must ma

A lovely little read while passing the time on the train to work.
Grace was blindsided at a family party and Saul, her childhood friend, crush, protector, and step-cousin stepped in and announced a fake engagement. Months later, the family is gathered for Australia Day and they're trying to prove that the "broken engagement" hasn't created hard feelings between them.

I loved this short story. I really wish it had been longer. There's a good bit that happens and there are some unresolved issues, so maybe there is another book/story coming regarding other Thornt

Loved this cute short story. It's perfectly short to squeeze in if you don't have a lot of time to read something longer, and it will leave you satisfied in the end.

I loved that we still got to meet characters and grasp their personalities even though it's this short. Things may have moved too quickly, but the way the author set it up worked and made complete sense.

This is my first time reading anything by this author, and I liked it, so I might try her other books.
Just so you know, half of the

Me gusto bastante a pesar de ser una historia tan corta.
An other short story, easy reading, At first Grace was like a denied person but then she just took the desition to show everybody she was that way because she liked that way, I mean, she could be all sexy and tough but she liked to be simple Grace, the thing I didn´t like whas that Saul had to see her in mini shorts to realize he was in love... and poor Carrie, what a fiance she got...
I enjoyed this short story very much. I liked how the hero realized his love for his heroine. This is a cute quick read.

I do wish it had been longer and that the after the I love yous we could have had more as well as more on Grace.

I will be picking up another book by this writer!
wel this book was ok. it only gt good near the end wen they declared there love to each bt the rest confused me as it wasnt in a certain narrative to me it was all over the place. xxx
