Love Or Money

A sweet story about sustainability surfing and searching for what really mattersWhen Erin Spenser inherits her grandmother’s beautiful cliff top property in rural Luna Bay she knows she has to sell it immediately to fund her ailing mother’s heart transplant. I see the superior rating for this book from some of you fine people and I m going to start off by saying I disagree with you It s cute and all but I was a little underwhelmed What do you do if your mother desperately needs an expensive operation and you recently inherited your grandmother s beloved Australian beach home Such is the conundrum facing Erin in this breezy bookOn the surface it seems her decision is simple sell the home But in this romance novel that occasionally masuerades as a treatise on the coastal environment Erin s apparently easy decision is made a whole lot tougher by two things 1 Granny loved the hell out of that house and trusted it to Erin s safe keeping and 2 there is a hot man involved who doesn t want her to sellThe closer Erin gets to Hamish Bourke her grandmother s executor the less inclined she is to sell Too bad the pesky issue of Mom s heart operation won t go awayI m not one who typically enjoys sweet books but I did enjoy this one Erin occasionally annoyed me when she became a bit self righteous we know your mother is dying Erin We know WE KNOW So you can uit beating that drum I found myself not caring about her mother though which I suppose speaks to my cold hard heart than it does to Peter McAra s writing The mother is also sent up as a selfless saint so I can understand why Erin wants to save her life And if the ending comes about a bit too tidily then all the better for Erin and HamishAh Hamish He has his own set of issues and perhaps his reasons for wanting to control Erin s decision are not entirely noble Or maybe they re entirely too noble Hamish s personal life is turbulent to say the least so maybe he needs to preserve the beach home because he needs some sort of reliable stability Or maybe he really is concerned about preserving Grandma s beloved homesteadI ll admit to occasional boredom with this book largely because every time there was dramatic tension it was too easily resolved Where the romance is concerned it is very tame If you want hot headboard rocking this is not your book But overall it s cute sweet and enjoyable As summer reads go it works wellThanks to NetGalley for the previewPublished on cupcake s book cupboardVivaAmaRisata The First Partition of Poland really mattersWhen Erin Spenser inherits her grandmother’s beautiful cliff top property in The Hero of Varay rural Luna Bay she knows she has to sell it immediately to fund her ailing mother’s heart transplant.

summary Love Or Money

Attractive lawyer determined to stand in her way Her grandmother’s property is a goldmine for holiday developers and her mother’s illness is only getting worse How can she make Hamish understand that the only way to fix her mother’s heart is to break her o. This was a cute book Both main characters were struggling with personal issues of their own And your sympathy for them just grows as the book goes on Both characters are also very relatable because the things they go through are situations that are easy to picture yourself inI had trouble putting this book down because I kept wanting information As I got closer to the end I was able to predict the ending But I was still excited to read how it played out I only wish we had gotten a tiny glimpse past where the book left offmaybe an epilogue or a seuel Overall I think this was a great book and I would definitely recommend it to anyoneI received this book free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my review

When she briefs her grandmother’s lawyer Hamish Bourke the passionate LandCare volunteer explodes her grandmother a dedicated fellow volunteer would turn in her graveBut Erin has responsibilities that can’t be denied even by an angry obstructive strangely. Peter McAra is a fine writer His prose flows crisp and clear and his characters are real and endearing This story is about a children s author Erin and a greenie lawyer Hamish Erin s grandmother has left her her property in a sleepy seaside town Erin goes to the property with the idea of working out what needs to be done in order to prepare it for sale Erin doesn t want to sell the old cottage but she has to because her mother needs a heart transplant and this is the only way they can pay for it However she hadn t bet on meeting someone like Hamish As you d expect on a romance Hamish is a handsome devil and he has a dark secret that means that Erin had best keep her desires in check The third wheel in the relationship stakes here is Erin s ex a rather sleazy money hungry chap who won t accept that their relationship in OVER His persistence is creepy and later in the book even hints of danger He also has clients a Japanese corporation that want to wood chip the area behind the beachside town something that Hamish and other green minded people in the community will battle with every breath they have When it appears to Hamish that Todd s relationship with Erin isn t over it also makes Erin s purpose in the town a little suspicious thus throwing another spanner in the romantic worksBut despite a few rocky bits the relationship between Hamish and Erin grows until Erin realises that he is the kind of man that she would be happy to spend the rest of her life with She can even see them having babies but if she sells her grandmother s house she ll probably lose HamishThe big uestion is how will they work it out Is there any hope of them getting together when the need for money stands in the way This skilful author finds a way and brings the book to a very satisfactory if somewhat cliched ending but it is a romance All up this is a light entertaining read with a green themeI was surprised to find a couple of issues with the editing As a reviewer for the Awesome Indies I am often asking independent authors to correct their usage of various elements of grammar and punctuation before their book is accepted for inclusion on the Awesome Indies list but that a mainstream publisher is guilty of the same faults is of concern to those of us who are trying to maintain standards The editor for this book needs to check the rules for use of ellipses and em dashes because they have used them incorrectlyGranted there are different conventions for ellipses internationally but the Australian style guide and this is an Australian publisher says Always separate the ellipsis and any preceding or following text with a space This book has no space at either endAbout the em dash the style guide says Insert a hairline space before and after an em dash if your publishing process supports it otherwise omit spaces altogether either side of an em dash The digital format does not permit hairline spaces so there should be no gap either side As it is there is a full space either side of the em dashes Both these editing errors look pretty tacky to anyone who knows how they should be As a message to the publisher the book loses a star for this oversight Sorry Peter this is no reflection on your lovely bookOf course this doesn t alter the fact that this is an excellent book but neither does that fact excuse the publisher for poor editing
