With the anniversary of his wife and child’s death looming, he’s buried himself in his work. Hopeless romantic Noelle Conroy returns home for the holiday’s only to find nowhere to stay. When the blizzard leaves Noelle snowbound in Ethan’s cabin, he starts to open up to her magic—but is love enough to overcome a tragic past?

My Review of Unmistaken

I’ve enjoyed every book in the Elkridge Series, and Unmistaken is no exception: it’s tender, poignant, and passionate in every detail. Ethan is truly a hero in need of healing, as is the heroine, Noelle; and naturally, in any good romance novel, the process of finding, almost losing, and ultimately healing each other is what readers crave. Unmistaken will satisfy that craving in every way. Although it may easily be read as a standalone, having read the previous books in the series brings important context to the story. Familiarity with the settings, the characters, and their various stories brings much-needed warmth to a highly emotional reading experience.

Lyz tackles many important issues in Unmistaken, including love, loss, disillusionment, and the pain of unfinished business in our lives — things left unspoken, people left behind, and loved ones lost. It’s a lot to pack into a novel, but it works, because it’s beautifully expressed. The only drawbacks for me were related to a common frustration with contemporary romance: the characters fail to communicate until it’s nearly too late. They make unfounded assumptions. Sometimes they fail to see each other’s needs because they’re overly focused on their own. In this case, Noelle, the heroine, frustrated the daylights out of me. She’s so determined that there is only one way to move forward with her life, she refuses to entertain other possibilities. She makes impulsive decisions and sticks to them with obstinance that’s nearly beyond belief. Granted, that’s an essential conflict in the story but it doesn’t make it any less frustrating, especially given her feelings for Ethan.

In one respect, I think the resolution was almost a little too easy, after all the build-up; but it didn’t detract from this heartfelt story. If you’re looking for a holiday read that will warm you inside and out, look no further than Unmistaken. And while you’re at it, read the rest of this beautifully written series as well.

Q & A with Lyz

Why would I want to read the Elkridge Series?  Each book in the Elkridge series is a piece to a puzzle—a suspenseful mystery involving the murder of a small-town sheriff. You get six contemporary romance books to figure out the mystery and a bunch of happy ever after (HEA) endings. Two novels in this fiction series—Blinded and Orphaned—are award-winning romance books.

Where is Elkridge, Colorado?  Elkridge exists only in my mind. On any given day, I can stop at River Creek Café for Jenna’s fresh baked cinnamon rolls, or shop for a birthday present at Mara’s Blooms, or get my nails done at Kym’s nail salon. Sitting in the park eating lunch, I can watch the kids play and hear the latest gossip from neighbors. Later, if I want, I can stop at Mad Jack’s to hear a local band play and get some dinner. Elkridge is a great small town where the sun shines 360 days a year and people do their best to make ends meet.

Would you tell us about your writing process?  It takes me awhile to write each stand-alone story because I am passionate about creating the very best stories for my readers. These contemporary romance books have complex plots and sub-plots and include suspense romance threads, with deep emotional women’s fiction elements, humor and even a bit of quirkiness. I’m so excited to see the 5-star ratings because it means I’ve created the ideal mix to provide readers with a few hours of enjoyment.

When she is not catering to the dog’s every whim, touring and tasting the latest California sparkling wine vintages with Ray, or sitting in Starbucks reading a great book, you can find Paula at her laptop – writing, editing, reviewing or avidly promoting the books and authors she loves. Two releases are planned in the coming year: Where Angels Lie, a dark romance; and an inspirational novella (name still under debate).
