For me Brenda Novak is a new author somewhat. I've read a story or two as novella's, but never a full book. When I saw that she was going to be writing a new series and it wasn't a suspense I became interested. I'm very much into contemporary romance at the moment, so I was looking forward to read it. When Lightning Strikes is a wonderful story about making changes in your life. It gives you a great balance of humor and touching moments. I would suggest that you start with the free enovella first, When we Touch, which introduce the characters to you. I hope you enjoy Gail and Simon as much as I did. Happy reading!
