MARTHA REYNOLDS, publication day, VILLA del SOL & Giveaway



Congratulations, Martha for the arrival of your novel baby,


Jennifer Logan just buried her husband, the beloved senior senator from Rhode Island. To find solace and peace for her troubled soul, she rents a villa in a small town on the Swiss-Italian border. For the next six months, Jennifer will process her grief in solitude, unplugged from the world.

But her financial stability is threatened when her husband’s only child lays a claim to his estate. Jennifer’s future is uncertain, and she must face the woman who has despised her for years. Senator Logan’s daughter always believed Jennifer was nothing more than a gold-digging trophy wife. She wasn’t the only one.

One person can help her find the peace she needs to move on with her life. But first, Jennifer will have to trust. And trust enough to share a secret about her husband’s death.

My Thoughts:

I would argue VILLA del SOL is Martha Reynold’s best novel (and it doesn’t even include chocolate). VILL del SOL is emotionally layered and has a character we root for the whole way. I believe any woman, at any age can connect with Jennifer. Fear and love are the universal emotions we experience and you’ve captured both.


Thanks to Martha, we have one copy of VILLA del SOL to giveaway. Just tell us about a tragedy and/or difficult experienced you suffered and overcame.

FYI: VILLA del SOL is available on kindle today/December, 1st on Amazon for only $3.99.

  1. My brother died suddenly and unexpectedly at the early age of 60 from a pulmonary embolism. It was very hard for my whole family, especially his wife and children. He had just retired and was looking forward to spending time with his 3 grandsons, one who was only 5 months old.

  2. The hardest thing I’ve had to go through was my divorce. I thought it was the worst thing that ever happened to me, but in the end, I found my out how strong I am and that it was one of the best things that happened to me.

  3. During the past 6 years I have had to face trials and tribulations related to serious life threatening illnesses and problems. 2012 I was diagnosed with breast cancer which required chemo and radiation. After that I was weak and needed strength and emotional support which was not there. Two years later I had micro surgery and complex surgery on my right wrist and hand. A year later my left wrist surgery and both required months of hand therapy. I persevered and then found out I have RA. I hope and pray for strength and good health.

  4. I’d have to give kudos to my parents for not giving up on me. They were told by doctors to put me in an institution. They weren’t going for that. I think we’ve come along ways in understanding various disabilities. I had a mild case of cerebral palsy, blind in one eye, and hearing-impaired. It wasn’t until I was four years old that a doctor believed my parents about my being hearing-impaired. I’ve had other setbacks. Dislocated knees where the knee cap would move out of place while walking or running–very painful. This started when I was about 11 years old. I’ve had several surgeries to correct this. Meanwhile, in my 50s,osteoarthritis has set in. The doctors did say that I would get this in my adult years. Added to this is psoriasis. It’s permanent. I have to diligently, daily, put medicated cream and moisturizer on affected areas; otherwise, I’d have red, peeling skin. Not pretty. I just have to take it day by day and deal with it. Reading and music saves my sanity. Now, I just pray that I don’t go blind.
