Beautifully Written

The Image of Her is contemporary romantic suspense. It is the second book that I have read by Lorna Peel, the first being Into the Unknown, and once again I enjoyed the author’s effortless writing style and captivating plot and character development.

I enjoyed the central romance between Rachel and Matt which I found to be realistic and believable. Rachel is an adopted child, who yearns to find out the identity of her birth mother and as relationships go, she is wary, having r

This book begins with a supernatural phenomenon that turns out to be something else. However, Lorna Peel keeps the theme of something supernatural in the form of a woman’s search for her biological mother.

The unknown elements of her adoption unsettling Rachel Harris to the point of continuing to delve, even when the clues are heart-breaking. So, there is somewhat of a haunting going on throughout the narrative. I loved the mystery and the story line. I love to read fun, bright chick-lit and this

This was an interesting read. I feel as though it is a unique and believable story, which makes it easy to connect with.

From the start, this story had a certain pull to it. This may be because I too was adopted, so I felt a connection, but I think it has to do with the possibility of an intriguing tale. However, the book, I feel, lacked a little bit of detail. Whilst it did provide us with some level of detail, it definitely would have excelled a lot more, had some sections had more description

Originally reviewed for
There was a time of my life when I wanted nothing more than to be English. I walked around speaking with what I thought was a great English accent for someone from Colorado. I was planning to marry George Harrison and I listened almost exclusively to English music: The Beatles, the Stones, Moody Blues, and, oh yeah, did I mention the Beatles? As the years passed, I dropped the lousy accent, did not marry George Harrison and, in spite of having

Rockin' & Reviewing Review. I got this book in exchange for an honest review.

I think that when someone writes a blog book review, it will always be a little more of a personal review. Mainly because it's a blog, the blog owner wants to state their opinions and express how they feel. In most reviews and books, I try to connect with the MC or reader in some way. So it feels more like a friend talking to you about a book, instead of some random stranger. I always try to give fair and honest review

“According to my file, I was abandoned on the steps of the children’s home in Telbury with a birth certificate tucked inside the shawl. The certificate stated my name, date of birth, and place of birth—which was Aldabury Maternity Hospital—and my birth mother’s name and address. All I have is my first name and date and place of birth. Everything else regarding my birth mother on the certificate seems to be false.” 1 likes
