J.E.Rowney spent several years in the cold Yorkshire hills, which brings the flavour of the moorland countryside into her work. She now lives in Dorset, and the sun and sea are slowly creeping in as influences.

"Charcoal", her first novel, was published in 2012 to wide critical acclaim, and was a bestselling novel across the whole of Amazon within days of release.
Ms Rowney has recently been awarded the Dinesh Allirajah Writing Prize 2020.
Her third novel, "Ghosted", was released in January 2020 and quickly also became a bestseller.
She spends lots of time writing in coffee shops, so if you see her, say hello.
Ms. Rowney says: "I always dreamed of being a writer, until I realised that I was. Then I started to write."

I really enjoyed this book! Since this is book 1 in a series - I am looking forward to reading more!

This story really took me back, brought back some memories. Not really of my college days (I went to a community college and lived in my own apartment) but it reminded me of my daughter going off to college. She went full time and lived in the dorms and had room mates.

I loved the parts in the book about the apartment they share, that whole dynamics was fun to read. Great character development, I loved Violet and her two house mates. 

The descriptions of learning to be a midwife were great. My daughter had a midwife birthing both of her babies and just loved her! I am going to recommend that she read this book. 

This is what I would call a "laid back read" just a nice easy going, easy to follow book.

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources -  Thank You!!
