Singleton's 'Seduced by Memory'

"Jeremy Hightower enters Donna’s life and claims to have nurtured a forty-four-year love for her. Swept up by the fairy tale, she allows herself to fall in love, only to realize that Jeremy has a past that could interfere with their future together."

"Ollie Singleton's maiden novel "Seduced by Memory' came to me via an unusual route. iditis gave it to me saying "Tell me what you think of it." Not given to serious reading, I made sure this novel was not one of those that I'd abandon due to sheer exhaustion of having read and reread the same page many times over! Well, I was assured that was not the case, and that proved to be true. By the time I finished my first reading I was already a fourth of the way into the book. The main character was interesting, but became less complex as the story progressed. Though an easy novel to read, I'm not sure what made it so: it's simplicity of plot or its sheer readability.

As a first write, the novel holds promise for this author, and I would probably want to read her second novel if she were to write one."

I'm not into love story's but if it has a little mystery a little intrigue, I love those kinds of novels. I think I'll check it out. Thanks.
