Arrows of Desire
Life is hard for Beth Somerville in a Glasgow torn apart by the Second World War. Her sweetheart, Teddy, goes missing in action and Beth finds herself falling for his brother Steve. Just before their planned elopement Steve is tragically killed and Beth is left alone with a baby on the way.
Gene MacKay seems to be the answer to her prayers and she allows him to whisk her away to a new life in Canada. But life is not a bed of roses, and Gene’s sister is hardly welcoming. In fact someone seems to have murder on their mind, and Beth turns again to Teddy for help in her hour of need.
Emma Blair has legions of fans and once again Arrows of Desire demonstrates why. There is such a strong sense of time and place that the reader is transported straight to wartime Glasgow and post-war Canada. This is how all romantic fiction should be.
