    About “Heather Horrocks

    • Heather Horrocks

      I m an author who had a somewhat unorthodox upbringing I was raised in South America and the Middle East, and wrote my first stories as a teenager in Kuwait, where my sister and I proved it really is hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk I wrote my first novel in three months on a typewriter when I was 21, I used every romance clich possible including amnesia need I say , and never rewrote anything, which is why it s so much fun to pull it out occasionally when I need a good laugh I wrote sporadically until my youngest child who is now 18 was two, when I decided it was time to either actually start writing, or to stop saying I was a writer So I took a class and started doing the scary things that writing requires Now I ve written about twelve novels and several children s books.

    • Amelia is a nurse by day and a clown by night--well, kind of. She is so good to use her sense of humor to cheer up the kids in the hospital, but not everyone enjoys her sense of humor. Her best friend and roommate, Stacy, recently got engaged, after only three weeks and wants Amelia to be the maid of honor. Nearing 30, Amelia is getting tired of always being a part of the wedding, but not really "in" the wedding. And then she meets Ben. Seemingly perfect for her, Amelia is devastated to discover [...]



    • A perfect telling of the dangers of a marriageable list. Heather delivered a fun, humor filled novel with lovable characters.


    • I almost think the name of this book should be the Petty Old Maid of Honor. It was well-written, but I was super irritated with Amelia. I mean, really? I understand making a list, I had one that I made when I was a teenager, but I was perfectly willing to concede on some of the qualities for the man that I married. And if I were crazy enough to assume that I NEEDED every thing on the list, I most assuredly wouldn't tell the guy! Yikes! I think Ben took it pretty well, all considering. Then you h [...]


    • I had higher hopes for this book but found myself cringing in too many places to really find it enjoyable. The character's opinion of converts, people who hadn't served a mission, divorced people, people of other faiths, etc, was incredibly shallow, which I suppose caused a lot of the book's heartache, and rightfully so. Amelia was too self-righteous to really sympathize with, so I couldn't really get into the story. Anyway, it did have a happy ending, which I appreciated but for me, it was only [...]


    • Cute, but I didn't find the main character that believable. I know there are women like her, with "lists" that keep them happily single, but I'm not sure the author actually knew any, because this girl seemed an odd mixture of judgemental and compassionate. She was unpredictable, and unrelatable. There wasn't enough explanation perhaps of why she is the way she is. Nor was there enough evidence as to why her main man loves her, other than he finds her attractive for reasons he can't define. I fi [...]


    • This is a standard LDS romantic love story. As the story progresses things are just going all too well and you know something is going to go wrong. And predictably it does. A very light read where it is easy to figure out where things are going to go.But still a very fun read with likable characters that you want things to work out for. Filled also with the ideas of forgiveness and realizing our life's list might be getting in the way.But if you want a quick, cute, makes you feel happy romantic [...]


    • I don't like to give bad reviews on books. This book was almost hard to finish. I did finish though. It attracted me initially because it is an LDS romance novel set in Palo Alto and on the peninsula- where I've lived. It's okay for an LDS romance novel- but the main character just really got on my nerves. I really hope there aren't people out there that are as petty as she is. I also felt like the author hadn't ever even been to the Bay area, and that kind of bugged me.


    • This one wasn't as good as her other books. The love interest got his feelings hurt and turned totally mean. On top of that everyone was trying to get the main character to lower her standards. I got the impression that they thought her wanting a returned missionary as a spouse was ridiculous, I'm sure that wasn't what Horrocks was trying to say, but that's what came across. I couldn't understand why she continued to like the love interest after his continuous "tantrum".


    • PG rated, but only because a little kid would get bored because it's about a woman who is always a bridesmaid. She has a list of attributes that her prospective husband should have, but meets someone without all the attributes she thought she should have. I liked it, but I am not impressed with this author (didn't feel very interested in the characters, wasn't amused by characters), so I probably won't read another of her books. Definitely for a Latter-day Saint audience.


    • I enjoyed this book. It was cute and entertaining. I didn't totally disagree with the list making and trying to find her perfect match. I totally understand because I am a list maker. I don't want to spoil anything but I thought there was a plot hole at the end at the company party. I felt there could have been more there. I felt like it was a big jump from unhappy to happy in the story line. I think there could have been more. It was a quick, fun read.


    • This was a fun read, but I found the main character really annoying - both because of her pranks (when everything becomes a prank, it is no longer surprising or funny) and her list-making. I am a list-maker myself, and I really couldn't relate to how judgmental and unbending she was with her list! But I did like how the author had her learn what was really important, and how she was able to admit she was wrong and make it right in the end.


    • IT WAS SOOO GOOD!! And the best part is I actually could focus and comprehend on the story without needing an audiobook to help! I recommend this book. It's a light, fluffy, LDS book with a killer romance that makes you crave a relationship. This is definitely a must read!


    • I liked this book although it took a little while for me to really get into it. Maybe because I was listening to it as an audiobook (which by the way I've discovered I don't like). It was predictable, but cute and uplifting!


    • There were a few things that bothered me about the writing. It just had some major plot flaws that were screaming at me. However, it was a good LDS romantic comedy. And I tend to love reading those. They are like book candy for me.


    • Cute fun read Amelia's character is hard to believe at times, but this book was the perfect light hearted thing to read when I needed a break from another book I was reading that was a little too intense.



    • Cheesy LDS fiction with a spritual lesson baked right in. Thought I would try out an extremely clean romance. it was ok but I won't do another.







    • I was looking for a cute simple book. It wasn't my favorite book, but cute. The main character was a little annoying and she could have added more to the story, but kept me reading


    • The LDS cliches were rolling out of this one at vomit speed, but she still made the story interesting enough to keep me reading.
