Author Interview with Donna Brown

Donna, thanks so much for being a guest on my blog! I recently finished reading your latest release, Elizabeth Barrett & Cupid’s Brooch, and I’m excited to learn more about it! Where did your inspiration come from when you wrote the book?

The idea was inspired by a group of business women. We were given this table topic: If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would you change?

At first I could only think of deleting my ex-husband. But how could I change him and still have my sons? My reply was some vague answer only…

Book Review of Elizabeth Barrett and Cupid’s Brooch

My Review

I love the idea of being guided to your true love through a magic brooch. Although the brooch is ugly, it is so much more. I think its outward appearance would deter the haughty and the non-believers, but for those who truly believe in love, they might see the brooch for the magical item it really is.

I really enjoyed watching two people of different time periods try to learn about and fit into the new time period they had traveled to. The interactions between characters was amusing and had me laughing throughout the book. The author did an incredible job at transporting the reader into the story and allowed us to consider small details of everyday life we might not have paid attention to otherwise, especially when being transported back to 1812.

This book was fun and enjoyable to read, and I know others will enjoy it as well!

My rating: 5 Stars

Book Review of Night of the Owl by Judith Sterling

This is definitely my kind of book! I love medieval romance, and this story was one of a kind. The mystery the author weaves throughout the story left me guessing until the very end. The romance was perfectly paced, the banter enjoyable. I really liked the matching bold personalities of both Ardyth and Hugh. They don’t play games. They confront people outright and they say what’s on their mind. That approach to their characters was refreshing.

I really enjoyed this book, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for an incredible medieval romance!

My rating: 5 stars
