I really got into the book and loved the characters, i rooted for them throughout which is always a good sign for a brilliant book. Read more here
There are times in the novel when the events are so sad and I was caught up in the drama, exuding sympathy for the pair. This is a thoroughly enjoyable read and one I would recommend. Read more here
It’s an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish and I cried… a lot all the way through. At one point I couldn’t see to read through the tears. The story is beautifully constructed and, yes, there is a sex scene… but it was completely necessary to the story. Read more here
The story flowed well though and I loved how sensitively the book handled a storyline that flowed through it dealing with cancer, and the effects it has on those living with it. I did love the fact that the theme of being a strong, independent woman moved through the book as well. Read more here
‘Decree Absolute’ is one of those books that gets your attention from the start and keeps it throughout the book. It had a perfect mix of drama, reality, humour and certain scenes reminded me of a farce. Read more here
A real kick off your shoes, snuggle down with hot chocolate read. Nothing to stressful to read, so you feel relaxed, and entertained. I hated the main character at first Jessica, she ruffled my feathers, though I could see why she behaved the way she did, and as the story progresses, you soften and grow with her throughout the story unfolding.

Decree Absolute by W A Cooper
Available from AMAZON
Jessica Barron no longer believes in love.
Her first husband died tragically and she discovers her second husband in flagrante with their children’s nanny. But with the faithless pair gone, her parents holidaying overseas, and her friend Amy in no state to assist, the Leeds divorce advocate can’t juggle the demands of her job with the care of her children, Luke and Gemmy, who she is emotionally estranged from. Jessica needs a new nanny, and fast.
Renée Arden is over relationships. Reeling from a recent break up, the Home Solution Agency owner is temporarily homeless. When Jessica mistakes her for a staff member, the solution is obvious. Renée will step in as nanny.
On their initial meeting Jessica and Renée clash. But desperate times call for desperate measures and the women put aside their differences. Both women, in their own way, need each other.
Renée’s efficient running of the household, enables Jessica to reconnect with her children and their relationship moves from professional to friendship, with the possibility of so much more.
But circumstances and supposed friends conspire against them.
Further heartbreak, hidden truths and secret desires test their fledgling relationship.
Decree Absolute…the end is a new beginning. Or is it?
Hi my name is Wendy Cooper. Growing up surrounded by books was a given. Dad was a bookseller back in the day and I worked for a publishing company in England on my big overseas adventure. I couldn’t escape the lure of books if I wanted to. For thirty years I was a flight attendant with our national carrier, and still immersed myself in reading on those long tours of duty away from New Zealand. On retiring from that career I settled on the Volcanic Plateau with my partner and two exotic cats who bring us much joy with their antics.
Travel writing and photography diplomas make up the sum total of my academic background. I prefer to inform those who ask, I graduated from the University of Life and am doing post graduate studies for the rest of my life!
I’ve been mentored by two fantastic writers who have helped my writing get to where it is today. Lee Murray and Eileen Mueller thank you for believing in me.
Women’s fiction with strong romantic themes (mainly gay women, but not exclusively) seems to be where my genre lies. Once I’ve written all the stories I have on my ‘To do’ list, I might try fantasy. There’s a blind dragon who has befriended a fairy who can’t fly. They would like their story told. Amazon Author Page…
