Hi, I've only just discovered my first BA novel - White Gardenia - I absolutely loved it and was unable to put it down. I fell in love with the characters, I can't wait to get my hands on Belinda's other novels. Thank you!!!

I happened upon this site looking for other books or authors similar to Belinda Alexandra.
I fell in love with Belinda Alexandra's books after finding White Gardenia in a secondhand bookstore. I have since bought and read all her books with the exception of Golden Earrings which I cannot wait to read. It's been a long time since I've been so eager to finish up what I'm doing just so I can get back to my reading -- I can hardly put her books down.
Can anyone recommend any other authors who are similar to Belinda Alexandra?

I happened upon Wild Lavender in a local second hand book store. It was the cover of the book which immediately caught my attention. From start to finish i couldn't put it down,and quickly sourced out other books written by Belinda Alexander. By this stage she had written three other novels, all of which i have read and thoroughly enjoiyed as much as the first. Can't wait to read the latest.

I am shocked by your comments as well Jennie, and agree with Neil. I don't believe a book would get through a editor, let alone a publisher if it had the errors you have put forward. Maybe I liked the book so much I just didn't see them as you did. I understand if you did not like the book - that's fine, I do not like some books either. However if you got through the book you would see what a strong woman Rosa is. I don't understand your need to put forward that due to one book, there is an issue with all Australian writers. I have personally found Belinda Alexandra's books really wonderful, because her characters are strong and the setting of each book, takes me back in time, to tough place in history. Heidi I hope you enjoyed the book like I did. Elw thanks for the info on Belinda speaking, unfortunately I am in SA. Does any one know when her next book is due out?

Interesting that Jennie (1/16/10) complains about "grammar errors"! Shouldn't it be grammatical errors?? After all grammar is a noun ? isn't it!
Waiting for the next book!!

I've ben an avid reader of just about anything since childhood. My sister recently gave me Tuscan Rose by Belinda Alexandra.
It's very rare for me to not want to finish a book, but this one will be going in the rubbish bin. A third of the way through I'm sick of the grammar errors but I'd tolerate them if it wasn't for the victim of a heroine. No desire whatsoever to "share her journey". Would prefer to give her a swift kick up the rear.
Bad editing and mediocre writing - don't waste your time or your money on this one.
If this is all Australian writing and publishing can produce then heaven help us.
