D'Amour Road is spellbinding!

After I published GETTING HIP, I decided to try my hand at fiction. I had been writing nonfiction ever since I was a teenager. My new novel, D'Amour Road, is about two women in Ottawa who are turning 40. One of them goes missing and the other launches a massive search to find her friend; she works in conjunction with the police, her colorful women's collective and a younger man whom she finds particularly captivating.

D'Amour Road was just released and is available as an e-book or a 6 x 9 paperback from http://www.lulu.com/content/117949.

Here is the first review of D'Amour Road, written by Joan McEachern, a former teacher at Algonquin College, an avid reader, and a member of two different Chapters' book clubs.

"I started this book at 9 a.m. and finished it at 7 p.m. To say that it held my interest is an understatement. The author uses a personal experience to weave a tale that is both riveting and spellbinding. The details of the Ottawa and Aylmer/Hull backscape are accurate and add in making this adventure real. I felt I was tracing the steps of the principals within the city. A valiant attempt for a first novel. Cudos to Ms. Macdonald."
