It’s sort of a dream come true for a lot of readers to have Joan Kilby, Karina Bliss and Sarah Mayberry do a series, as their stories FEEL contemporary, their characters are so realistic, and they’re not trying to package younger adults into the neat little rainbows and unicorns and cupcakes corner of the genre the way too much category romance does.
Sara Mayberry's immediate neighbors in , are 3 individuals in 3 households.
This is the second in a trilogy set in Australia and written by Australian authors Joan Kilby and Sarah Mayberry, and Kiwi Karina Bliss. I have no idea how it was written without a lot of drama and confusion, because the stories are all happening at the same time, they’re closely connected, and some scenes overlap, but from different characters’ points of view. It must have been a challenge to make it all fit!
Sarah Mayberry was born in Melbourne, Australia. This middle sister has always wanted to be a writer. After graduating from college with a BA in professional writing, she found that perhaps she needed to live life a little before writing about it. In order to pay the rent she became a trade journalist where she led the launch of a new decorator magazine. She was lured away to become a storyliner for the Australian soap opera, Neighbours. She later wrote for the TV drama Shortland Street. Inspired by her love of romance novels, she submitted many manuscripts to Harlequin who became her publisher.
