Was delighted to find Diane Chamberlain’s PRIVATE RELATIONS, 25TH Anniversary Edition, re-release in e-book format. I have read 21 of Diane’s books, a huge fan--one of my favorite authors! (there only two remaining I have not read which are older—have purchased them, and currently sitting in my e-reader to read--The Courage Tree and Fire and Rain, which I missed along the way.) Ironically, Private Relations, is Chamberlain’s first book, and have just finished reading an ARC of her latest, upcoming book #23 The Silent Sister (coming Oct 7, 2014)—which is a 5 Star read, and one you will not want to miss—Would recommend pre-ordering! Wow, what a journey, and your fans thank you for giving up your career for full time writing years ago, as a bestselling author! Many engaging, complex, inspiring and satisfying books in between. Of course, her social work, most definitely offered her much insight for her bestselling books. Fans of Diane will appreciate her personal note at the beginning of PRIVATE RELATIONS, as she was working as a hospital social worker when she began writing this book as a hobby. Gradually, her hobby became an obsession. She describes her journey with Private Relations, and editing process, as it went on to win the RITA award for Best Single Title Contemporary Romance of 1989-a great accomplishment for a new writer. Boy, has she come a long way--Congrats! Divorced and lonely, Kit returned east from Seattle to join her old college crowd in a rented beach house for the summer. She meets Cole, and her life turned around, filling her with a new vitality. But Cole had a secret that could destroy their tender new relationship. Every fan will want to add this Anniversary Edition to their e-book collection, as Diane kept the story the same and changed a few present day thoughts, as well as added an epilogue to let you know what happened to the characters (Janni and Kit) when returning to the coastal The Chapel House, a ten bedroom old oceanfront mansion—where a group of close friends shared their hopes and dreams, and many memories!
