- Enigma Review by Readwarbler
- The Bay of Plenty literati is abuzz with whispers about the identity of reclusive writer, Jane Harmer, whose novel Roads was published by Oceanbooks only last week. As yet no one has owned up to knowing this shrinking violet, who hides behind her keyboard, sending out directives in the middle of the night. There’s a rumour she’s been published before. My guess is that it must have been in the UK, based on her intimate knowledge of life and work in the British Midlands. It’s said she writes in several other genres, most likely under an alias.

- Love in its season Review by Gibbous D. Moonlight
Love is in the air down at Lucas Transport Ltd. So much so that its go-getting entrepreneur founder complains she’s running a marriage agency.
Rowan Lucas has little time for romance, herself. More than anything, she wants her company to succeed. Unlike so many unenlightened bosses, she does this by creating an enviable working environment and getting her employees on her side. There’s another side to this successful businesswoman. By night she transmogrifies into a sexy blonde folk singer. Oh, why were none of my bosses more like Rowan?
Rowan’s many qualities cannot go unnoticed by Hayden Morrell, chief executive of the Wolverhampton branch of Modicom Electronics, one of Lucas Transport’s most important clients. He soon sees past her youth and beauty. Romance is inevitable. This does not suit Gail Richards, Hayden’s bitchy personal assistant, who already has her blood red claws sunk deep into him. Gail by name and gale by nature, she will stop at nothing to wreck the blossoming relationship.
Twists and turns draw the reader into a tale which is more than just a love story. Roads provides intriguing insights into human nature and life and work in late 1980s multicultural British Midlands.
