My Review

Rekindling Connections was perfect weekend reading for me! I was away at the Festival of Romantic Fiction when I was reading this fab book and I am so glad I had it with me! Nicky Abell-Francis has created some fantastic characters who are both interesting and entertaining. I loved how the reader is given a glimpse into Zara's background and I felt this really helped to get to know her character a little bit better as we don't just find out the history behind the girl but it helps to shape her personality and the sort of person she is. Throw in polo players and what more could a girl ask for!

Zara's group of girlfriends create some funny moments in the book and reminded me of the great group of friends I have! There are quite a few laugh out loud moments. The opening scene in the book will get you hooked instantly as poor Zara wakens up from a drunken night during her hen party to find a naked man in her bed! Now, who wouldn't want to know how that happened! As if that isn't enough, the beautiful cover grabs your attention too! With the right amount of secrets, lust, passion and romance this is a great read and highly recommended! 

About the Author

Working in the sports therapy field for some fifteen years the opportunity to work in some diverse areas came about and led to the meeting of some very competitive, challenging individuals, who make up the sporting world. Current affairs of the heart of many women today allowed me to see that we all search for the perfect soul partner. Both male and female clients produced this result, from many a conversation and gossip on the bench, (massage work relaxes the body as well as the mind). Clients worldwide found choosing their ideal partner a lottery.
     This inspired me to look more closely at how marriage choices are made through the heart or the mind. Having travelled round the world my research led me to be inspired by the excitement of each country visited and how my heroine could become incorporated within these settings combining the sporting calendar and outdoor pursuits of each destination I found exciting and that created a passion within.
