Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
...a really enjoyable read of loss, love, friendship, revenge, hope and redemption.

The Elephant Girl has an emotionally satisfying, if very dramatic, ending with the villain literally being served justice because of their own actions. Karma’s a bitch even if the reader gets a hefty dose of villain exposition beforehand.

Four stars - Compelling; Page Turner
A sweet love story is buried in the pages of this story, in which a high-end auction house is the battleground for familial rivalry, greed and violence. As the setting moves from the exotic locales of India to the mean streets of London, there's plenty of tension to be had among the key players. The final reveal is well-played.

"The Elephant Girl is a superb romantic thriller packed with nail-biting intrigue, heart-pounding suspense, searing emotion, red-hot passion and edge of your seat drama. Henriette Gyland is a terrific storyteller who knows how to amplify the danger, leave her readers breathless with exciting twists and turns and make them care about the characters she writes about. I thought Helen was a fantastic heroine. She was a strong, determined and controlled character who managed to overcome all the obstacles that had been thrown in her way to become the person she wanted to be. I also thought Jason was a wonderful hero – sexy, honourable and charismatic, he is certainly the guy you’d want by your side in a crisis!

A spellbinding read that kept me up way past my bedtime, The Elephant Girl is a must-read for fans of romantic suspense the world over!"
