A book that is flying up the Amazon charts and is a must read, is NIGHTINGALE WOODS....by Kathryn Brown.
NIGHTINGALE WOODS "Rachel Phillips, mid twenties, a little naive, rather gullible, has fallen for a married man. The thing is, he's also fallen for her. In too deep, Rachel and married man Steve, begin an affair and develop intense feelings for each other, knowing what they're doing is wrong. But after nine months of lies and deceit, Steve's wife Olivia finds out and gives him an ultimatum. It was inevitable that someone's heart would get broken, but Rachel truly believed it wouldn't be hers and certainly not twice within a matter of days.
Seventeen years later, Rachel has been married, widowed and moved on to a new life in a little Scottish village in Perthshire. But one day her life comes crashing down around her when she spots Steve and Olivia in a nearby town, looking happy and very much together. So sure she'd got over Steve, she soon realises she's never been able to move on since falling in love with him and when Steve sees her and follows her home, Rachel has to make it clear that she’s no longer the naive twenty-something he once knew.
But is she? Does the flame reignite when they meet again after seventeen years? And is Steve still in love with Rachel, or has he moved on?" And its only 77p!!!! Just click here to buy!
We all love a 5 star review and I have just received #60 on Amazon UK......
"I have always liked memoirs from ordinary people, not celebrities, and this one certainly didn't disappoint! It had more drama than a Hollywood movie and was extremely well written. Easy to read I was drawn in from the first page of his youthful escapades and from then on I felt I was with him every step of the way. I'm a slow reader but I read this in two days - I had to force myself to put it down to go to bed! A nightmare to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, I felt his desperation and discomfort seeping out from the pages. This was as good as any book published by a mainstream publisher, and better than a lot of the drivel they deem fit to publish. I'd love to see it as a film. A well deserved 5 stars."
My latest 5 star review on AmazonUK, #59 out of #102 reviews. In the review it is suggested that Tom Hardy plays me if my book turns into a movie. Not the first time a reviewer has mentioned that the story would make a great movie. This review is also placed on this website, www.amandagreenauthor.co.uk, as well Amazon and Goodreads. "I really enjoyed this true story! It is quite an adventure for the reader as David's journey into a nightmare moves along quickly from one sticky situation to the next. It shows a lot can happen in a month!
David's writing is so easy to read, you are left to enjoy the roller coaster ride which starts with a big mistake!
As I read, I could picture everything that was happening so well, I felt I was a fly on the wall watching it, feeling every emotion that David did, and for this reason, I began to think of it being made into a film. Who would play David? Oh, that's easy - a brilliant actor such as Tom Hardy would be perfect! I can see it all. This is not an idea driven by my own excitement, but of common sense. The sooner someone in the film industry makes David an offer he cannot refuse, the sooner we can all be enjoying it at the cinema and the success of this self published book can be spread further.
Well done David for retracing your steps to the tiniest detail, for being so honest about the negatives as well as the positives that occurred, and for writing it in a wonderfully gripping way.!"
