Book Review of :  Getting Some of Her Own



After sixteen years, Susan Pettiford has come home to North Carolina for good. Thanks to an inheritance, she can start her own interior design business. It’s not quite the life Susan hoped for, but she’s determined to chart a new course…and shake things up.

When architect Lucas Hamilton accepts Susan’s dinner invitation, the result is a night of seduction neither can forget—yet neither intends to repeat. While Susan focuses on her new life, Lucas focuses on becoming wealthier than the absent father he resents. But when his father resurfaces, Lucas finds himself turning to Susan for counsel. And as their paths cross repeatedly, their feelings for each other strengthen. Yet the secret Susan is hiding may destroy any future they share…

“A love-conquers-all story with a few twists and turns to keep readers turning the pages. I enjoyed it from cover to cover. Getting Some of Her Own is classic Gwynne Forster.” —The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers


About Gwynne Forster


Gwynne Forster was born in North Carolina, grew up in Washington, D. C., and has lived, studied and worked in New York City ever since she came of voting age. She considers herself a humanitarian, a perspective that she inherited from her mother, a high school principal, and which she also attributes to her work and education in the social sciences, more specifically, demography. Her fiction writing reflects her training in the sociology of the family and her understanding of inter-personal relations. It should not be surprising then, that quite a few of Gwynne’s novels and novellas are set within the context of the family.

Gwynne relaxes best when she is near—but not in—the water. She loves boating and would spend hours fishing daily if she could. Oddly, she never learned to swim, and she always wears a lifejacket when boating or fishing. Her bedroom faces a river, and if she didn’t work, she would spend a lot of time sitting in the bedroom gazing at the water and the passing boats. Moving water, she thinks, is soothing and relieves stress.

Gwynne Forster is national best-selling and award-winning author of six novels of general fiction, thirty romance novels, and six novellas. All of her mainstream novels and several of her romance novels have been featured in Black Expressions Magazine. When Twilight Comes, her first mainstream novel, was featured on the magazine’s cover, and it also remained on the Essence Magazine list of best sellers for several months. Her latest mainstream novel, Getting Some Of Her Own, was published in August 2007 to excellent reviews, and Romantic Times Magazine has nominated the book for an award as best African American romance 2007. e-Harlequin’s Weekly Newsletter listed Gwynne’s November 2007 Kimani Romance, Forbidden Temptation, as one of Harlequin’s ten best books of 2007. The highly acclaimed mainstream novel, When You Dance With The Devil., published in August 2006, attracted media attention.
