The Bad Mothers' Book Club by Keris Stainton

⭐⭐⭐⭐ This book is more chicklit than lesfic but is thoroughly enjoyable. It starts in the dreaded gate-moms world. Yeah, that is...

From Heel to Heart by Amy DeMeritt

⭐☆

A fantastic cover and a great first scene quickly (and sadly) devolve into a plodding romance in this one.

One terrible morning everything that can go wrong is going wrong for Lana Scott, a senior financial analyst with Bit-Cube. The cherry on the icing of her awful morning is when her heel breaks. Serendipitously, the tragedy happens right in front of a shoe repair and tailoring shop owned by Elli Voss. Elli handles Lana’s bitch-mood with patience and gentleness making Lana’s day a lot better. Lana has lost her passion for her job and is thinking of either taking a sabbatical or leaving it. Elli lost the love of her life six years back, and with that the dream of having her own family to continue the family business which she is currently running. An immediate tempered attraction between the two with some determined effort from Lana has the two of them finding peace, stability and forever.

The story and the romance are not bad but the writing is (we hate to say this) – awful. The writing lets the book down entirely. Stilted dialogues, poor narration, internal over-reactions: it is a fail on many levels. In fact, we had to quite force ourselves to complete this one. Lana is a likeable MC but Elli, for all her easy-going, good-temperedness is not. And the overuse of 'aye' got old fairly quickly.

This one is easily a give-a-miss.
