Sarah Broadhurst's view...

I am a huge fan of this talented author who has given me much pleasure in the past. She sets her astute comedies amongst the 40+ age group, and really nails the problems facing so many women today. This is her fourth novel and I can recommend them all. I think sheâs great.

Comparison: Mavis Cheek, Adele Parks, Lou Wakefield.
Similar this month: Kathleen Flynn-Hui, Wendy Holden.

If you like Jane Blanchard you might also like to read books by Adele Parks, Lou Wakefield and Mavis Cheek.

Synopsis

Fanning Old Flames by Jane Blanchard

Maggie, just turned 40, mother of two and wife to Garth, is at a crossroads in her life. She's a secretary at an estate agency with a particularly awful boss but when he sells out to Home Truths, she is promoted and now works at an estate agency with a difference - one which tells its clients the truth about how compact a property is, the damp etc… and her new job does wonders for her confidence and self-worth.

At home she begins to be more adventurous too, questioning her family's behaviour and demanding a bit more respect and even risking Garth's wrath by going to a health farm and then a holiday with her friend Pam.

As Maggie's marriage goes somewhat downhill, she thinks about what COULD have been if things had gone differently when she was younger. She gets in touch with an old flame of hers - Jake - who has been on her mind recently and discovers their falling out so many years ago had been a misunderstanding - and the fire is still there.…But is Jake her true love after all these years - or should she remain loyal to her family…?

Lovereading always comes up with great suggestions and has introduced me to enjoyable books and new authors to discover.

Gaynor Passmore

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman
