ABOUT Donna Fasano

Donna Fasano
I have written over 30 romance and women's fiction novels for Harlequin/Silhouette Books. The Merry-Go-Round is my first self-published novel.


When Lauren goes to court it's usually to defend a client, but now she's divorcing the man whose mistakes have cost her far too much. Little does she know that she'll be awarded a rundown merry-go-round. Maybe restoring the circus menagerie will bring her some normalcy. Or will it spin her in circles and teach her a few lessons before bringing her back to where she started? One thing is certain; Lauren will discover that, when she's willing to open her heart to love and forgiveness, life never fails to offer a wild ride.

This book was purchased by Harlequin Books as a Harlequin NeXt, a line of women's fiction books; however, the line folded before my book was published and the rights reverted to me. I'd love to see this book read and enjoyed by readers of women's fiction, romance, and chick lit. This book is available in Amazon's Kindle Store.

Amazon review: 5 Stars! ~ The Merry-Go-Round is a book that I'd be pleased to recommend to friends. Laura's story is well-written with character's that I believe that most readers could relate to, especially her Dad. I loved his character. A great fun book for the romance fans.

Amazon review: 5 Stars! ~ I really enjoyed this book, it's a good lighthearted fun romance. Lauren's dad is annoying, in that well-meaning "I'm just doing it for your best interests" kind of way, and you can't help but like him. As you might expect from a contemporary romance, Lauren herself has an epiphany or two along the way, but it's all written in such a way that nothing feels forced. And there's nothing too terribly angst-y about the story, which can get really old and it's nice not to have to deal with if you're looking for something escapist and feel-good. This is a good book to spend a few hours with and come out satisified in the end.

Amazon Review: 5 Stars! ~ The Merry-Go-Round was a great easy read and I would recommend this to others, you won't be disappointed! I felt that I was able to easily identify and connect with the characters, especially Lauren's Dad. HA! I could see this book be adapted for the big screen.
