Read Between the Lines is the first book in the Freshwater series by Belinda Williams. It is a great contemporary romance, with endearing, relatable, and interesting characters. The story is well written, with more to offer than just romance, as the author opens the window on some sensitive subjects which she uses in a very considerate, yet honest way.
I have read a couple of Ms. Williams other books and really liked them- so I knew I wanted to see what this new series would offer. I am happy to report that this kept me entertained right from the beginning- mixing humour, emotion, and drama into quite a fun read.
Kate Chalmers has made quite a life for herself. She’s the popular is the co-host of one of the hottest current affairs shows on television. She is well liked, beautiful, savvy, and smart. Kate really loves what she does but strives to keep her private life out of the public eye. Her career and the life she has may seem enviable- but she’s been unlucky in love and yearns to meet someone who she could share her life with. But, with so much to occupy her time, finding love has been put on the back-burner. Then her new neighbour sparks her interest, as there’s something quite mysterious about him, and so she’s determined to uncover everything she can about him.
Matt Goodridge is a doctor who has his own obstetrics practice. He doesn’t like talking about his past, or the traumatic event that led him on this career path. After moving into the same building as Kate and meeting his ‘famous’ neighbour, the chemistry between them ignites into more. But what happens when secrets are revealed? You really should read all the intriguing developments for yourself- you are bound to enjoy it just as much as I have!
This is a great start to the new series, and I can’t wait to see where we go from here.
Thank you, Belinda Williams!
