First goodreads review of A Fine Pursuit, prt2 in the Chambermaid series….

A Fine Pursuit by Sarah Michelle Lynch

A fine pursuit is a tale told from Noah’s perspective. After Charlotte left him he is desperate to win back her love, and to do this Charlotte stipulates that she needs him to eventually re-visit events from his past that have affected him deeply and have clouded their happiness and also his previous relationships with women.

He agrees to this and helped by Charlotte and his therapist, Noah confronts damaged family relationships from his childhood and adolescence that are still haunting him as an adult.

Noah’s therapy sessions are well researched and believable. The incidental erotica adds some fantasy and escapism to a well-written story. I strongly recommend this book.

Book Six… TBC

Hi guys! Just a swift check-in from me.

I have been stupidly bogged down with editing and stuff lately. Got a busy week of signing stuff off coming up.

Personally, I can confirm my next novel is something very different to anything I have ever done before. I am reluctant to release details at the moment but I can confirm, it is literary/contemporary fiction.

More to come. Until then, check out The Chambermaid. She got a few more reviews this week and I am super pleased that I am reaching various corners of the globe!

Koobug.com’s review of A Fine Profession…

This is not a first novel for Sarah Lynch. As Koobug subscribers will know she has previously written a trilogy about a future world. “A Fine Profession” is a complete departure. It is, in one sense, erotica, but in truth there is much more to this book.

On a primary level it is a tale of how a young woman, Charlotte, deals with infirmity and consequent low self esteem; how she develops and turns into a discrete sexual tease and instructor who, inevitably, falls in love with one of her clients.

On a more sophisticated level the book weaves a strong story around Charlotte, chronicling how a childhood cancer affects her. As we discover, her illness dictates her life, and defines the sexual woman she becomes: tempered by a core of vulnerability.

“A Fine Profession” explores her relationship with important people in her life. The narrative reveals a number of twists and turns. Suffice to say it would be a good story on its own. The sexual element of the book is an added dimension. It enables the author to explore betrayal, exploitation and infidelity in a different context.

The evolution of the plot is imaginative and excites the interest of the reader with a mysterious nocturnal opening, set in a run down mansion. The first few pages introduce us to a private detective, a chambermaid and the mysterious Miss Lottie.  The structure of the book is intelligently drawn and lures the reader to uncover the secrets within.

“A Fine Profession” has already been labelled as chick-lit and erotica elsewhere. In Koobug’s critique we consider neither does it justice. It is not a “fluffy” or vapid chick lit novel. There is much more to it than a titillating read. The “scenes of a sexual nature” are clearly integral to the way the story evolves. They are well written and crafted, remaining (just) on the right side of the erotic/pornographic line. (It is definitely a book for the 18+ readerships and will not appeal to those who dislike sexually explicit images and language).

This Koobug review closes with Sarah Lynch’s own description of “A Fine Profession” as an “erotic novel”. Read it and judge for yourself.

ARC now available

An Advance Review Copy of my latest novel A Fine Pursuit is now available. It is pretty much edited, proofed and set in place so what you’re getting will be pretty much the finished product.

Breathe in, breathe out… phew this is a big thing!

I am offering PDF or Mobi formats for anyone interested in reading this book in exchange for an honest review. It will be so important for the success of this book to have some reviews go up on release day (November 1st) and your reading this book will also give me insights into the market I need to target.

A bit about the book:

If you scroll down my blog on here, you’ll find a prologue, synopsis and other notes. It is an erotic novel written entirely from a male perspective, though I never try to make things particularly slushy whatever voice I am writing in, so slush-haters are safe there. What else I can tell you is this: this is a novel that will interest those who find psychology fascinating. It is also a book that may have you screaming at the pages. It’s very frustrating, but these are real issues I am dealing with. Nevertheless this is a romance, an erotic romance at that, and I have used the romance to offset the difficult issues I tackle. But, well, you’ll see…

I would so appreciate some takers. A last word from me ‒ this story begged me to tell it. The story behind the work is interesting too. The experience is magnified if you read A Fine Profession first (I can provide copies of that too), but I have written this novel to stand alone if it needs to.

p.s. A Fine Profession will be in paperback very shortly. Watch this space!
