At 27, Autumn Lianne Bennett lost her battle with cancer. Winter Lianne, Autumn’s eight-year-old daughter, was raised by Autumn’s sister Ruby, along with Ruby’s husband, ‘Big George.’ Winter married young, but a bitter, middle-aged divorce left her reeling. Soon, a new love entered her life and with him, she thought she was complete. Her aunt died. In Ruby’s possessions was a diary that belonged to Autumn, and it outlined her time with Winter’s father, a man who had no idea he had a daughter. As she approached fifty, Winter wondered if her existence would even matter to her father, now. With her husband by her side, Winter decides to read her mother’s diary in its entirety, and after, whether she wants to find her father.
Winter Bennett-Mathey experienced marriage at 18, motherhood at 20, a partnership in a successful beauty shop at 26, and at 44, she had three adult children who were all off in the world becoming responsible adults.
Winter discovers she’s showing signs of aging. Mortified, Winter decides to change her life habits, and includes her husband in the new routines.
William Mathey chose a different path for his mid-life crisis; in the process, he manages to sever his almost thirty-year marriage.
Devastated, Winter makes more changes. After the loss of a loved one, William notices his ex-wife was not as her body was showing him, and decides he needs to get his ex back but does Winter feel the same, especially with others expressing wants and needs of the woman he abandoned?
I loved Seasons of Our Love. The well-developed characters nudged their way into my heart or not. Some I loved to hate. I rooted for Danny and Rosie from start to finish. The story moves, but not linearly. With lots of twists and turns, you might want to fasten your seat belts. Whenever I put the book aside, the story lived inside my head calling me back. I never stayed away too long because I knew the author had more surprises in store. I hope there’s a sequel because I didn’t want this one to end. Angela wove an intriguing, compelling romance that anyone with a soft heart will want to read. I look forward to more from Angela Gascoigne.
A craftily worded, and completely enthralling novella!! I find myself looking to see if this a series…. I hope so! I rarely find such perfect samples of mermaid and man romances, and I want much more of this story! It’s going on my favorites shelf.
May 10, 2018Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseAlthough I am giving this book a four star review, I think many readers will like the tale even more than I did, and it is quite a tale. The author.gives readers a peek into the life of Holly Dineen. I liked Holly and could see personality traits from several people I know wrapped up in this complex lady who is just trying to figure out love,life and the emotions that go with hardships, heartaches and times that are wonderful and make Holly who she is. The book is an emotional roller coaster ride that is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MASTERFULLY WRITTEN STORY TO DELIGHT THE SENSESReviewed in the United States on October 6, 2014
There is yet to be a Dellani Oakes novel that I am not eagerly awaiting. Conduct Unbecoming was not a disappointment. Filled with action packed scenes, romance that will set your heart a thumping, but not from a quivering violet. Instead, Ms. Oakes is a master at strong male and female characters, capable of going toe to toe, yet causing the heat to rise and the spirit sale. In this Teague McGurty sequel, we Teague and friends coming to the aid of his friend Nadeya who has been framed for the murder of her fiance’. This is a story about true friendship, modern day romance, steamy love scenes, and full of action. It is a masterpiece of fun literature you won’t want to put down from the moment you open it up until the last page is finished. It will leave you wanting more and yet filled with the story. Truly a story to delight.

Kindle Customer5.0 out of 5 stars COULDN’T PUT IT DOWNReviewed in the United States on May 26, 2018There is laughter and heart break in the lives of five friends. Norman, Joyce, Tina, Kerry and Colin. All 5 are facing some sort of turmoil but always have time to help each other. Life at Planet Poultry is never dull and the author has written a touching and inspiring story. Anything can happen when you have great mates and a winning lotto ticket wouldn’t hurt.

I give this 5 stars for being the rousing romantic adventure it is.
