Part of our reasoning to do this is to bring more attention to the Indie authors we love to read. With so many books out there now it's hard to figure out what is a good, well-written book...or not. Keep in mind, these are our opinions, things we like to read.
Today's offering is LOVE THROUGH A LENS by Lucy Felthouse. Here's the blurb:
Celine Patterson is a recent graduate eager to begin her career as a camerawoman—with the fashion world and all its glitz and glamour calling to her. Things aren’t that simple, however, and she’s forced to take a job making a documentary in the Peak District countryside with a mid-list British actor.
In spite of her initial disappointment—not only is the job not what she wanted, the pay is appalling, too—Celine warms to the project. The actor she’s working with, Edward Robson, is kind, considerate, funny and a consummate professional. She realizes she can learn a great deal from him, and resolves to do so.
As the days of the shoot pass by, Celine grows increasingly fond of Edward, and that fondness quickly goes beyond the platonic. Convinced her crush is completely one-sided—he’s over three decades her senior, for starters—she tries hard to ignore it, hoping the feelings will go away.
But then something happens to change Celine’s opinion, and flip her world upside-down. How will she react? And can she emerge from this project with both her career and her heart intact?
I've liked Ms. Felthouse's writing for years because she really has a way of connecting the reader to her characters and making us care. She brought to live a young woman who thinks she knows what she's in for with an older, famous man, but as the story progresses, Ms. Felthouse shows how insular we often are and how each person, is so much more than the outer appearance. Celine starts to understand there's more to Edward than she can see on TV, and Edward is beautifully circumspect about overstepping their relationship, given their age differences and his position of popularity. Their connection is both sweet and erotic, and I enjoyed this tale a lot. This is a M/F May-September romance and so worth your while.
