Author Biography

Amanda Brenner is a native Midwesterner who has traveled extensively throughout the United States, and who now lives quietly with her husband and an assortment of wildlife visitors to their urban home. Her interest in writing began at an early age when westerns were popular attractions at the local theater. It seemed only natural that her first novel, Trail of Vengeance, should be in that genre. After finishing a second western, Shadow of the Rope, she began to explore a new direction and completed three contemporary mysteries involving private investigator Sid Langdon, a self-doubting magnet for offbeat clients and hapless scenarios, the latest being The Mystery of the Nourdon Blue. Amanda enjoys learning from the books she reads, a characteristic reflected in the research she includes in her own works.

Karl met Leda when Karl’s group, a group studying tropical diseases, contracted with the company Leda was working for to provide personnel for the study they will conduct. After three years of working together, a fight broke out in the area where they were working. Before everything ended badly, Leda confessed her feelings to Karl. Not long after, Karl and Leda are married and live in Karl’s home country, Belgium, where Karl is an aristocrat. In Belgium, Karl was injured by an explosion, leaving him in a coma. The people Leda expected to help her during these hard times were actually the people who would make her life harder. While My Love Sleeps by Amanda Brenner tells the story of Leda, her strength, and willpower to fight the people who want to take everything from them.

Leda and Karl’s love story is like a fairy tale with a kick-ass heroine. Leda stayed strong and determined even when things were going bad and her husband was not awake to help her. No one knew if or when Karl would to wake up, but her conviction and faith was impressive. One of the main problems Leda encountered was that she was in a foreign land, but that wasn't a deterrent in her mission to protect her husband. I liked how the story flowed although I wasn't quite sure of the setting and time of the book. Overall, While My Love Sleeps is a very good romantic suspense book by Amanda Brenner.
