Books by Sharon Sala

Lucky

This book took me completely by surprise. I've read mixed reviews for this author's work (she also writes as Dinah McCall), and I figured that, while Lucky may not turn out to be a DIK, it would probably be an okay read. Half-way through the book, however, I could not believe what I was reading. Not ...

The Way To Yesterday

Get out a couple of boxes of hankies before you open The Way To Yesterday. By the time you finish the book, you will have finished at least one box, and will need another. This is a very sweet, very satisfying tear-jerker and one of the better series romances I have read this year. Mary Faith ...

Queen

Queen is quite possibly the most emotionally manipulative book I've ever read. Unfortunately, due to its poor writing quality, excessive head hopping, and lack of character development, all of its intrinsic machinations come to naught. I didn't care at all about any of the characters, and I thought ...

Snowfall

I wish I could have given this book a higher grade. I started to, but as I began writing the review, my thoughts began to focus and I realized Snowfall, while being a pretty tight page-turner, left me vaguely unsatisfied. There was nothing really wrong with it, but nothing exemplary either. It was q ...

Familiar Stranger

The mini-series A Year of Loving Dangerously saved the best for last. Sharon Sala's book Familiar Stranger gives us the story of Jonah, the secretive head of SPEAR. It fills in the background relationship between him and Simon, the terrorist who has spent the past year trying to kill Jonah and bring ...

Butterfly

A lot of romance heroines are introduced when they are at a low point in their lives. The reader then gets to follow them as they bounce back from that point. China Brown, the heroine of Sharon Sala's latest, is so downtrodden that she's never able to recover as a character. And the book suffers for ...

Gentle Persuasion

Gentle Persuasion is the sequel to Sharon Sala's Always A Lady and like that book it is a very nice comfort read. The characters are all charming and likable, and the story moves along quite nicely. It isn't until after you finish the book, that you realize that if Cole had only talked to Debbie rig ...

Mission Irresistible

The mini-series A Year of Loving Dangerously is based around a top-secret government agency named SPEAR. SPEAR is headed by an anonymous leader named Jonah. The SPEAR operatives do not know who Jonah is and do not know when one Jonah retires and another takes over. The current Jonah has found out th ...

Always a Lady

I've always wondered what made me avoid reading certain authors, even those who have come highly recommended to me, until the last minute. For some reason, I've put off reading them, much to my own detriment. It's one of the reasons why I've only just discovered such wonderful authors as Susan Eliza ...

Always a Lady

Friends of the Library booksales are wonderful places to browse for unusual titles. I had read and enjoyed several Sharon Sala books before, but I had never heard of this one. I went ahead and bought this book anyway and was glad I did. Although the opening was overly coincidental, Always a Lady set ...
