I was eagerly anticipating a second read from this author, it was more than worth the wait! After reading her first book I was blown away with the fierce intensity the author uses to create characters and bring to life the troubles they face. And therefore I could not wait to dig into this read.

The read focuses on Angela and how she has been running from her abusive husband, hiding and living in fear. Then a flash flood hits and her whole world is turned up side down.

She has the very sexy and t

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Rachel is a wonderful writer. Her characters are well developed. There's plenty of emotions both in the love story and the mystery. As in all these books the romance concluding on a positive note is a forgone conclusion, so we have to have enough reason to believe these two will have trouble pulling this off. The author does drum up enough tension between Chris and Angela to go their separate ways, but the mystery and fine writing save the day. I enjoyed this book ...more

'A Man Like Him' is an exciting read, balancing plenty of drama with a truly lovely romance storyline. I fell in love with Templeton Cove in 'Finding Justice' and in 'A Man Like Him' we get to learn more about the people in this charming seaside village, and to see what happens to Cat and Jay after the end of their story.

Chris, Cat's brother, is a perfectly believable character and a perfect hero: strong and powerful yet damaged by his broken relationship, and not yet living up to his full pote

This book was pretty good. To be honest I liked it more than I thought I would. It seemed like it would be one of those romance novels that was overkill on the cheesy romance. This book was not. Angela's character was really reluctant to be with Chris. Chris was a little too perfect. I know that it was mentioned that he had a bad past, but it seemed like he was too perfect in the present. It may sound horrible but I would have liked to hear more about Angela'

I was excited to have another opportunity to read and review a book by Rachel Brimble. I had my first taste of her earlier this year and had a feeling that I would like this book as much as the other one. I was right.

Before the book even gets started, Rachel tells us that this is more of a personal story for her, as she and her family were among those who were caught in the floods of 2010 and had to be rescused from a rooftop. Others weren't so lucky. I could feel her emotion as she relived that

Chris is staying at the Holiday park in Templeton Cove to recover from his fiancee's betrayal. He wasn't looking to start another relationship, but he thought Angela was a very sexy woman. A storm came through and caused flooding in the park and cause lots of damage and devastation. Angela and Chris were trying to save people during the flooding. Angela didn't want her picture to get out to the public so her ex would find out where she was. Angela has become a very strong person and doesn't want ...more

Angela Taylor had a marriage made of nightmares. Now she is divorced, living in a new town, and wanting to move on with her life. When Chris Forrester shows up and catches Angela's attention she immediately thinks the new stranger to her vacation spot may be on the lurk for her ex-husband. Chris is trying to mend a broken heart and feels drawn to Angela. This book has romance, intrigue, mystery and excitement all wrapped into it. Definite page turner, you won't want to put it down.

Scintillating suspense and mystery kept me glued to the pages of this classy, contemporary novel

I was absolutely delighted when I discovered that I had won a copy of Rachel Brimble’s book {through a giveaway held on ‘DizzyC’s Little Book Blog’}, as the cover caught my eye instantly! This truly is a touching romantic tale that warms the heart and makes little butterflies tremor in your tummy. I found this cute, Harlequin Super Romance a charming, engaging read and one that I could handily slip in

I feel like the suspense over-powered the romance. And I didn't like the end.

This is the 1st book I read by Rachel Brimble. I liked how Angela helped save everyone. I thought Angela was so brave. I didn't like how Angela treated Chris. The rest of this story didn't really interest me.

Hummy nummy NUMMY!

Am I delusional from lack of sleep, or is this book just that good?

Prepare yourselves for a rickety rollercoaster of a ride! Pity, doubt, anger. Rachel Brimble sets the stage for yet another fantastic suspense and a
