“A spot-on debut novel, Sharla Lovelace’s prose is smart, witty, funny, with a hot sexy edge that makes The Reason Is You an oh-so-tantalizing romantic journey…the line between our world and the mystical one is deliciously blurred.”
~ Kathryn Magendie, author of Tender Graces, Secret Graces, Family Graces, Sweetie.
“The Reason Is You is a romantic story about love, ghosts, and second chances. But under all of that, it’s a story about redemption. This novel is the definition of a page-turner.”
~ Therese Walsh, author of The Last Will of Moira Leahy
What reviewers are saying about BEFORE AND EVER SINCE….
Lovelace does a great job of bridging the past with the present. The characters are smart, funny and well rounded. It is refreshing to see a female character, with obvious vulnerabilities, exhibit such strength in situations that would make other women cringe. ~Romantic Times Book Reviews
Before And Ever Since is a beautifully crafted, thought provoking story that engaged me from the first few words. The chemistry between Emily and Ben was sizzling hot, and I was quite enamored of these two attempting to work things out…that I could NOT put this story down until I finished it. ~Joyfully Reviewed, November 2012 Recommended Read
Emotionally rich and beautifully told, Sharla Lovelace’s Before And Ever Since is a magical tale of love and family. You’ll hate for it to end. ~Rhapsody Book Club
Sharla Lovelace is a gifted storyteller. She creates characters that are very down-to-earth, flawed and understand that there isn’t a fairy tale happily ever after waiting for them at the end. It’s raw, it’s gritty and it’s not tied up with a pretty bow, which makes it feel so very real. I look forward to reading more from Sharla Lovelace in the future. ~Cocktails & Books
