    Great roller coaster ride of emotions!

    This novel was great and it pulled me into a roller coaster ride of emotions right away! Rick, Trix and Devon's story is one worth reading. Trix was a wonderful character and so full of spunk! I enjoyed seeing the dynamics between all of the characters, not just the main ones. The characters seemed real and were likeable even with their flaws. The setting is gorgeous and it makes me want to visit New Zealand one day! This is a great read about lost love and trying to put a family back together amidst physical difficulties. If you enjoy YA and romance novels with great characters, then you will enjoy Devon's Dream! Four stars out of five. (This book contains some sensual scenes)

    I received a copy of this book for free. This is my honest review.

    A Charming Love Story

    Devon Smith is badly-injured in a car crash and whilst still befuddled by pain-killers asks for Rick Lawton to look after her daughter, Trix. But she hasn't seen Rick for thirteen years – not since she discovered she was pregnant with his child – and Rick has no idea that he has a twelve-year-old daughter.
    This is a heartwarming tale of love lost and regained. You can pretty well guess from the start how it is all going to turn out, but there are some surprises, mainly provided by the sub-plots.
    In the years since their love affair, Rick has married and fathered another child, the delightful Davey, but he is now a widower, bringing up his son with the help of his equally lovable parents.
    Devon, on the other hand, has gone on to become a famous singer and musician and is now having to come to terms with the possibility that her badly-damaged hands may never allow her to perform again.

    I was very taken with this story. Ms Ashby writes well and fluently. The plot is interesting and different and her characters are all likeable. The only villain in the piece is already dead. I rather liked it that way. I loved all the characters and I was willing Devon and Rick to stop agonising over their feelings for each other and get back together. What did surprise me was how moving I found the final scenes.
    A very satisfying read.

    Jenny Twist, author
