Lovereading view...

This is an author who really deserves more readers. Her characters are incredibly emotionally involving and there are moments that are truly heart wrenching. Her plots and sub plots are cleverly, sometimes intricately done but not so much so that you lose the thread.

Comparison: Jodi Picoult, Anita Shreve.

If you like Paullina Simons you might also like to read books by Jane Smiley, Bea Gonzalez and Helen Dunmore.

Synopsis

The Girl in Times Square by Paullina Simons

Meet Lily Quinn. She is broke, struggling to finish college, pay her rent, find love. Adrift in bustling New York City, the most interesting things in Lily’s life happen to the people around her. But Lily loves her aimless life … until her best friend and roommate Amy disappears. That’s when Spencer Patrick O’Malley, a cynical, past his prime NYPD detective with demons of his own, enters Lily’s world. And a sudden financial windfall which should bring Lily joy instead becomes an ominous portent of the dark forces gathering around her.

But fate isn’t finished with Lily.

She finds herself fighting for her life as Spencer’s search for the missing Amy intensifies, leading Lily to question everything she knew about her friend and family. Startling revelations about the people she loves force her to confront truths that will leave her changed forever.

From a master storyteller comes a new heart-wrenching, magnificent and unputdownable novel.

This is the odyssey of two young women, Lily and Amy, roommates and friends on the verge of the rest of their lives.

Reviews

Praise for Tully'Pick up this book and prepare to have your emotions wrung so completely you'll be sobbing your heart out one minute and laughing through your tears the next... Read it and weep - literally
Company

Praise for Tatiana and Alexander


'This has everything a romance glutton could wish for: a bold, talented and dashing hero, a heart-stopping love affair that nourishes its two protagonists even when they are separated and lost, a long and bitter military campaign, plus personal excavations into the past. It also has - thank goodness - a welcome sense of humour and discernible characters rather than ciphers'
Victoria Moore, Daily Mail

Praise for The Bronze Horseman


`Pulling off the passionate love story embedded in a truly epic narrative is a difficult thing to do. Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind remains the blueprint for the genre... it's quickly apparent that the Russian-born author Paullina Simons has the measure of this kind of epic romantic saga. The power of her descriptive writing, the vividness of the historical detail and, most of all, the strength of her central characters mark out her novel as a considerable achievement.'Barry Foreshaw, amazon
