Vicki's Work of Heart
Rosie Dean, author
What if you found yourself stranded at the altar, knee-deep in your absent fiancé’s gambling debts? Shall I tell you what I did? That’s me, Vicki Marchant, humble art teacher and jilted bride. I carried on with the reception because I like a good party. Then I paid off his debts and seized my freedom. I left teaching to paint – in France – it was my time. There was nobody to get in the way of my ambition. Definitely, no men… Problem #1: my free accommodation, in return for cooking his meals, was with dishy vet – Christophe Dubois. I would be strong. I would focus! Problem #2: I met art critic, Daniel Keane – knowledgeable, well-connected and so supportive. Brilliant! My art would improve in leaps and bounds. I learned two things: some men are hard to resist and my judgement of them was still on the dodgy side.

Vicki's Work of Heart was even more difficult to put down than her first book! The characters were believable and well-developed, easy to become attached to, and wonder "what next?" I like books that make me think about them when I'm not reading them, and Work of Heart certainly falls in that category. The plot and sub-plots were interesting and meshed, keeping up my interest. I really enjoyed the story and the empathy I felt for Vickie and she went from one situation to another.
Looking forward to more work from Rosie Dean!

The book starts on a somewhat devastating note but Rosie Dean quite ingeniously sprinkles humour onto what turns out to be the beginning of Vicki’s life metamorphosis.

As she takes charge of her future, Vicki’s initial arrival in France brings her back to earth with a firm bump. But as things improve – and how could they not after tucking herself away in a village that both evokes and soothes the senses – she begins to live her artistic life the way she always dreamt.

Nothing in life is easy and Vicki’s new journey is not without some hiccups. Man-sized hiccups, that is. Christophe, in particular, is an enigma. Wrapped up in his work, horses and family history, the pull towards one another is undeniable and I especially liked the way he viewed Vicki with an amused enjoyment. Christophe leaves quite an impression, seeming to immediately understand what Vicki needs from life, and his mere presence on the pages has him dominating every scene.

With descriptions of mouthwatering food, dreamy settings and sexually charged scenes at regular intervals, the book is a sheer joy to read. It also spells out that although life never turns out how you plan, it is what you make of it. Take charge of your destiny and be sure to encompass your passions. That is, after all, what life is all about.
