Synopsis

Maximum Exposure by Jenny Harper

She's a professional photographer - but is she ready to expose her heart? Adorable but scatterbrained newspaper photographer Daisy Irvine becomes the key to the survival of The Hailesbank Herald when her boss drops dead right in front of her. And while big egos and petty jealousies hinder the struggle to save the paper, Daisy starts another campaign - to win back her ex, Jack Hedderwick. Ben Gillies, returning after a long absence, sees childhood friend Daisy in a whole new light. He'd like to win her love, but discovers that she's a whole lot better at taking photographs than making decisions, particularly when she's blinded by the past. When tragedy strikes Daisy's family, loyalty drives her home. But it's time to grow up and Daisy must choose between independence and love.

Reviews

Page-turning and thoroughly entertaining. I loved it! -- Katie Fforde I always love stories where we are introduced to a group of very different personalities but whom all have the same drive and desire. The news room at the 'Hailesbank Herald
was the perfect setting and it was these characters and their little quirks, their relationships with each other, and their desperation to keep their jobs going, was what made this book a real winner. I adored Daisy, and she was the most relatable heroine I have encountered for a long time. Hopelessly in love with her ex

-boyfriend who left her for another woman, her situation had me connecting with her so deeply, that I really felt for her in every moment when her hope was crushed within her. One of the main things that made this book such a great one was how deeply I connected to Daisy, not just as a character but as a real person. Her utter loneliness in the later parts of the book really struck a chord with me, and I was even reduced to tears at one point, understanding and empathising with her loneliness and her desire to find a place for herself. Ben was not so much a traditional romantic hero, but nevertheless he was the perfect man for Daisy, something that made me root for him throughout the book, even when I didn't agree with some of his actions. His feelings for Daisy were so lovely to read, but I felt my heart break when he decides to forget about her by entangling himself with her roommate. My heart ached for Daisy, and I wanted to smack Ben around the head for being so, albeit unknowingly, insensitive, and in essence causing Daisy to feel more and more isolated, even in her own home. It was little things like this that really made this book a great read, as I felt connected with the characters and affected by their own problems and mistakes. I loved the journey that Jenny Harper took me on with these characters, and I really loved seeing Daisy's development when she leaves her small town and tries to find herself. The strong characters in all the members of the news team made them feel like colleagues of my own, each known for a particular characteristic, and it made me feel as though I was leaving my own work friends as I finished the book. This was a fun, heart-warming but also emotional story that had me thinking about the characters long after I'd finished it. -- Sorcha O'Dowd Amazon Review
