Review this Book

A Different Reflection


Katharina Stuart, nicknamed Kat, has a pretty normal life. She has a great job in London writing for a magazine and comes home every night to her beautiful apartment and her fiancé John. Most people would envy her, but Kat has always felt like something is missing from her life… 

After being assigned a new set of stories, from which she is struggling to gain any enthusiasm, Kat is given a new lead on an old property for sale called ‘Northfield’. It intrigues her that the old butler still lives there and she finds a flurry of excitement that this could be her new story, so proceeds to try and get him to agree to an interview. Northfield does not disappoint in any way. It is old, in beautiful grounds and the grandeur it radiates has Kat captivated from the moment she arrives. 

She befriends the charming George who still lives there, and as he gains her trust he allows the story of how he came to live there to unfold. He is not alone in the house, and his unbelievable tale of witches, magic and spells makes Kat begin to question her own beliefs… 

It’s not long before Kat experiences the magic of Northfield first hand, and as she spends more time with the occupants of the old house she so desperately wants to help her new friends. But in doing so, her relationship with John becomes strained, with the added complication of Nadine, his work colleague… 

Will Kat decide to follow her heart and her dreams, or follow her head and the voice of reasoning? Whatever path she chooses, she knows that her decision will change her life forever. A Different Reflection is a modern day fairytale that captures the lives of regular people alongside romance and fantasy.

This is a brilliant first book from the author with an easy to read and hard to put down novel.
It combines both romance and fairy tale themes. About a woman with a big heart and passion for helping others, the outcome of which is about facing her fears and then rewarded by her efforts.

by Vikki

A Different Reflection was a fantastic read right from the start. It had me quickly absorbed into the story of Katharina, and how she meets the other characters in the book called George and the gorgeous hotty called Harry at the very beautiful old house named Northfield.
A really easy book to read and that is why you get sucked into the story so quickly.

Lots of thought and imagination as gone in this lovely fairy tale story and truly pays off .Can't wait for the next one.

What a fantastic book Jane. I could have read it straight through but I had to force myself to put it down as I wanted it to last as long as possible! I loved the characters & story. All in all, a wonderfully, magical book. Thank you. Looking forward to the next one now!

I loved the way it was written. I wished to be there at northfield. The main character was very whole and interesting. You could really see through her eyes. I really liked this book provided to me for an honest review by netgalley.

Hello everyone, after many years of writing for my own enjoyment, I decided that it was time to share my stories with the rest of the world. A Different Reflection is my first novel, and I look forward to sharing many more with you all.

I live in the Yorkshire countryside with my husband and two teenage boys, I love spending time with my family and friends and fill my remaining spare time with writing.

I am extremely excited to be publishing this first novel with Matador and look forward to the release date in 2015.
