About Fran Shaff

Just about all of us want to get away from the demands of everyday life from time to time. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the luxury of being able to take off to some new, exciting place whenever we feel the urge--unless we like to read.

A book can take us anywhere we’d like to go. For readers who enjoy living vicariously in pastimes or in modern times Fran Shaff provides a great escape in the more than twenty novels she’s published over the years. Fran’s fictional books have won awards from readers, reviewers and fellow authors, and her non-fiction has been acknowledged in this way too.

Love is the main focus of all of Fran’s books, whether they’re contemporary or historical, serious or humorous, written for adults or teens. Love between men and women and among friends and families is featured in her books because there is nothing most of us want more than to love and be loved. Happy endings abound, but the journey to reaching that joyful final moment is always a rocky struggle, just the way we want our fiction (even though we could do without the drama in our real lives).

Look for new, full-length historical romance novels from Fran Shaff in the ten-book “Tender Mysteries Series,” available now and debuting throughout 2013 and 2014. The first novel in the series “Resurrected” is available as a free download at most Internet bookstores. The series is available in single e-book and two-pack paperback formats.

Review by: lucilubris on Nov. 25, 2011 :
I enjoyed this sweet story. It wasn't too long, 231 pages, but there were enough details to care about what happened to the characters. There are 100 pages of previews at the end of the book and the comment:
"Fran Shaff's adult novels are of the PG variety, which makes them suitable for teens as well."
According to the list, she's written at least 15 novels.

I enjoyed the book, but I certainly didnt shed a tear, its just a very predictable love story. But thats not to say I didnt like it, but not a great depth to the story at all.

Review by: Lynn on Feb. 07, 2010 :
Fran Shaff is a new author to me , but not any longer. One of my favorite genre's to read is the historical romance, so when I downloaded Change of Heart to read, I immediately fell in love with her work. This is such a stirring heart gripping novella that I highly recommend it. You cannot help but shed a tear or two when you read this book.Ms Shaff is an excellent writer and knows just how to write the heart stirring novel to keep the reader entranced to the end.
