Growing up the third child of five—yes, smack dab in the middle and the only girl to boot—Donna Fasano had no idea she would one day be a published author. Her story-telling talents came to light when she conjured lively and elaborate tales of pure blarney (yes, she has a bit of Irish in her blood) for, first, her youngest brother, and years later, her children.

Donna is a USA Today bestselling author of over forty novels. She's known for her "smooth, polished" writing style and for creating "strong, complex" characters. Reviewers have described her stories as "poignant," "richly textured," "enticing," and "absorbing."

All readers will be able to identify with Nina Hill, a bookish bookseller who doesn’t have time for a love life. But there’s so much more to this story than love and romance. There’s the book-store owner who can’t pay the rent and the building owner who’s determined to get his money. There’s the Trivia Teams (which are filled with wonderful characters!) and the weekly Trivia Competitions (fun Read more of this blog post »

Donna Fasano and 1 other person liked Lisa's review of Win For Love:
Win For Love by Isabelle Peterson
"Once in a lifetime

It started a little slow for my liking but when it took off, I had to hold on. The ride was a tad bumpy at times and left me feeling worried about our main character. This was a fantastic book, I enjoyed every bit of it." Read more of this review »

I enjoyed all the characters in this book. Lucy was my favorite. I loved that she was always fussing over the “loose ends.” The story had just enough twists and turns. Very enjoyable read!
