Donna Brown

Author Donna Brownabout this book: Emma and David Thomas think their divorce is all but final. There's just one loose end to tie up before they'll part ways forever: decide who keeps the treasured painting they bought on honeymoon. An impromptu road trip to try and recover the sister painting offers an ideal opportunity to tend to - or reopen - old wounds. Will facing them bring nothing but pain or will it offer a way forward to a second chance?


Playing House is my second novella and first romance novella. Normally drawn to darker fiction and mystery and suspense plots in my writing (particularly in short stories), I really wanted to explore the dynamic of love and loss between two vulnerable characters.

Needless to say, I didn't give David and Emma an easy ride! They have an awful lot to contend with and face up to and a happy ever after is far from a done deal.

I loved writing these characters. Playing House made me laugh, it made me cry and it moved me in a way I never expected it to. I'm now working on my second romance, Feeling the Music, to be released in May 2015 before a return to thriller writing in late 2015.
