This Is Your Song, Lola Rose - Donna Hay ... bully who made her mother's life a misery until the day she died. She and her father have barely spoken since then. And Lola finds out why when, after the funeral, an embittered relative reveals a dark family secret. It turns out Eddie Lambert wasn't Lola's father at all. She was the result of a backstage fling between her musician mother and Rick Wild, guitarist with the mega rock group Poleaxe. Not only is her father very much alive, but he's also a big-haired, leather-wearing rock god. Lola tries to handle the revelation in her usual practical way, although deep down she's excited by the idea of having a family somewhere out there, and a father who might love her in the way Eddie never did. But her expectations are dashed when she finally gets to meet her long-lost dad, and discovers he's a typical rock star - spoilt and self-indulgent with the maturity of a hyperactive five-year-old.And then there's his family, who turn out to be a bunch of people so dysfunctional they'd make the Borgias looks like the Waltons.

However, I will make an exception for certain authors, and Donna Hay is one of those. I've loved all of her previous novels, and have recently read most of her back catalogue. So I excitedly ordered this from Amazon and set to reading it as soon as it had arrived.... sadly it was a real disappointment for me, and I was so looking forward to it as well! This Is Your Song, Lola Rose follows the character of Lola, a young policewoman living a lonely life. Her mother died when she was young, ... Read the complete review
