Embraced by Love, by Suzanne Brockmann

(I am in a Suzanne Brockmann kick, have you noticed? Well, what’s a woman to do, when she has written so many of my favorites?)

Embraced by Love is Ms Brockmann’s third published novel, originally released by the now defunct Pinnacle in 1995 and reissued by Ballantine just shy of its ten year anniversary. It is a good thing it was reissued, because for a while it was impossible to find a copy to read. Anyway, I got my s.o. his very own copy, we read it, and here’s our joint review.

But first, the blurb in the reissued version:

Josie and Cooper were one of those couples everyone envied: gorgeous, successful, and so deeply devoted. Even though Josie tended to work too hard, putting in long hours to lift her fledgling company off the ground, and Cooper could be wild and unpredictable, the two complemented each other. It seemed their love would last forever.

But sometimes love just isn’t enough. When a tragic accident leaves Josie and Cooper with two young children to care for, their bond will be tested. Now the pressures of their commanding careers are compounded by the needs of the children, and they find themselves drifting further apart. They will have to work to find the way back to each other, to the incredible passion that was once at the center of their lives—and still burns deep in their hearts…


I’ve always had a soft spot for Dolly Parton. Everytime I see her on the TV, she just comes across as a really nice woman, with a fab sense of humour.

I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb… and I also know that I’m not blonde.


If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.

Too true.

I like this one too:

I’m not going to limit myself just because people won’t accept the fact that I can do something else.

And this one is seriously amusing:

I wanted to be the first woman to burn her bra, but it would have taken the fire department four days to put it out.

I love her.
