I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Thank you Olga

    1. A beautiful book, Rosie. Thanks so much. I must check the author’s other books as well. 🙂

  2. Like you, I rarely read Romance as a genre. But I was also attracted to your selected quotes, and can see the appeal of what appears to be great writing.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. This is a beautiful book and I’ve read great reviews of the rest of the author’s writing. I hope you have a great Tuesday.

    Such a lovely review, Olga. It makes me want to hop over to Amazon. Well, that’s exactly where I’m heading next.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I got this book at the right moment, that’s for sure. It’s wonderful. I hope you enjoy it too. 🙂

  5. Hi, Olga. I’m sorry to be late. This book sounds lovely. I liked what you said about being attracted to particular settings. Great secondary characters really make a book for me. Thanks for this review — and best to Caren with the book.
    TGIF hugs!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. This is a lovely book and I felt transported to the place. I guess we all imagine these wonderful places where we would fit right in and feel at home. Perhaps they only exist in the pages of a book or we have not come across there, yet, but this is one of those novels where everything worked for me (the setting, the characters, the mythology…) Although the location is very different, it did remind me somewhat of the spirit of Atonement. Have a lovely weekend. Love to Crystal.

  6. Sounds like there’s a bit of mystery involved. Your reviews always reel me in, Olga. Caren looks somewhat like K.D. Lang 🙂 ❤

    1. Thanks, Tina. Yes, there is. And I thought the same when I saw the author’s pick (and love K.D. Lang). Have a great weekend, Tina and thanks for the comment. ♥

    This actually looks….right up my alley. When I read romances, this is the type of thing that I go for! (Albeit I’ve never read a F/F one.)

    1. Thanks, Lilyn. I hadn’t read many either (I had read some books where the main story was something else but there was a side-story of an F/F romance) but something attracted me to this book, and when I read the sample, I had to keep on reading. Perhaps it’s in part because I was in the process of moving, but I felt quite attuned to the main character. Check the sample and see how you feel. Caren writes very well and although I don’t normally read the other genres she writes, I will have to check them out. Have a great weekend!

  8. This sounds very intriguing, Olga. I have not read any books about same gender relationships although I have a lot of same gender couple friends. Thank you for the recommendation.

    1. I have read a few (I’m a fan of Hans Hirschi, and he always writes about the subject), and this is a great book if you want to try. Thanks, Robbie.
