‘Love Is Crystal Clear’ is a well-written domestic drama/romance which stands out as being very polished. The prose is clean, concise and with very little flowery language. The protagonist, Henri, is relatable and down-to-earth, a capable but dissatisfied divorcee looking for a new lease of life. The love interest of the piece, Danny, is similarly relatable and makes for an engaging male lead. The novel offers something new to the genre by incorporating the practice of crystal healing and skilf

This is the first book I've read that is about women going through the same things I am at this time. Henri doing research on menopause and learning things that I never knew because my own mother never experienced it. Maggie having an unfulfilled marriage because her family expects her to not only help run the bakery,but also take care of everything at home, and just accept the way things are between her and her husband.

Love is Crystal Clear is Joanna Cates debut novel and it is a refreshingly uplifting and romantic tale of self-discovery and second chances.

Henri is fifty-one and single, fifteen years after the breakup of her marriage when her husband had an affair. Danny’s relationship also ended in similar fashion when he uprooted his life only to discover his wife had been cheating on him and didn’t really love him at all. Both characters have

I came across this book by chance and as a lover of romance stories with a happy ending, I had a pleasant time reading it! The story revolves around Henrietta or Henri and her budding romance with Danny. The narrative switches between the point of view of each of the characters who are part of Henri's world and we get a little bit more insight into who they really are and how they really feel. The author also addresses the topic of menopause and how it affects the lives of women in the story and ...more

Well , what a great read , completed the book in two nights , the story line & characters were very engaging , & easy to relate to . I think with the current situation ( covid ) , we all need to realise how lucky we are , with who we have around us , believe in ourselves & accept who we are as individuals, and what we bring to friends & people we love & care for . This book portrays exactly this . True to life situations , relationships , sex , menopause & much more . Highly recommend a read .

Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. The characters were engaging and relatable. I couldn't wait to see how the love interests blossomed. It was just the thing I needed to lift my spirits and give that wonderful escapism into a romantic world in which I didn't want the story to end. I loved the characters, their relationships, great themes and the saucy, sexy bits! Am really looking forward to the sequel. Well done Joanna Cates on your fantastic first romance novel. ...more

What a fantastic read! A perfect book to snuggle up and immerse yourself in. A little raunchy at times which makes it a great distraction! All the characters were relatable and although I didn't want the story to end, I couldn't put it down. A fantastic debut, well done Jo, I'm very much looking forward to the next book! ...more

Henri and Danny are single people who previously had marriages end due to their partners being unfaithful. Fast forward 15 years and the story is a wonderful love story playing out for the 2 main characters

Henri and Danny are both loveable characters that you continually root for, life isn’t straightforward for either of them but you can tell they are destined to be together. The other characters that are thrown in the mix are extremely likeable too and to be honest I wish everyone was like this
