5.0 out of 5 stars Family secrets, drug deals, undercover agents, and murder 15 May 2015
By Lisa Binion - Published on Amazon.com
Do you believe that the name you are given at birth has a lot to do with how you live your life? If you do, what would a child named Don Juan Casanova grow up to be like? How would being blessed (or cursed) with such a name affect his life? Look at what these names mean. Don Juan – a man who has sexual relationships with many women. Casanova – a lover, especially a man who is a promiscuous and unscrupulous lover.

Don Juan was raised by his grandparents, and they taught him to be a Lothario, a man whose chief interest is seducing women. Then he had to go to Vietnam and fight. When he returned, memories of what he had gone through during the war made it easy for him to turn back to seducing women. Booze helped him escape even more from these horrible memories.

During the day, he is an English teacher. Each night, he is the maître d’ at his family’s nightclub, The Aphrodisiac Academe.

Now he is close to forty years old. After having seduced hundreds of women, Don Juan has one desire: he wants to change his ways. He wants to get serious with one woman and be faithful to her. But how easy is it for a Lothario to change the way he lives?

Now throw some pretty grisly murders into the mix. His grandfather and his younger brother, also Lotharios, have been brutally murdered. Guess who the police suspect of killing them? Then there are the bodies of the dead that Don Juan discovers and hides. Don Juan thinks the killer might come after him next.

So Don Juan is dodging a killer while finding the killer’s victims and hiding them. He is doing all he can to stay out of the clutches of the police who think he is the killer. And while all this is going on, he is trying to find the perfect woman to remain faithful to and spend the rest of his life with. Family secrets, drug deals, and undercover agents only serve to complicate things even more and make the already difficult task of redeeming his life even harder.

If the name of this book gives you the idea that book is erotica, you are deceived. There are sex scenes, yes, but they are not X-rated. This is the story of a man who grew up to lead the life of a Lothario and is now trying to find a way out of that lifestyle while trying to prove that he is innocent of murder.

And considering who the murderer is and the method of murder, maybe the life of a Lothario isn’t one to be desired.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Favorite Sentences:
He was sitting on top of the counter with his long legs sprawled across all three sinks, staring at the mirror in deep concentration, as is he was willing the Wicked Witch of the North to appear from the mirror and weave a spell to make him handsome instead of butt-ugly.

When he spoke, his voice was soft, like a feather duster gently moving across a hardwood floor.

His complexion was so pale that his zits looked like glowing embers on a sheet of white paper.

What if his brother had turned the body into hamburger and planned to serve it to the customers to get rid of the evidence?
3.0 out of 5 stars My take on The Redemption of Don Juan Casanova: 22 May 2015
By M Denise Costello - Published on Amazon.com

I generally have a favorable opinion of this fourth novel by Mr. Lofthouse, although this book does not flow as smoothly as his earlier efforts. I really like the premise of the novel--a flawed character who is trying to change beset by challenges, one after the other, to become a better person. I also appreciated that many of his female characters were strong women who did what they could to empower themselves and overcome their own obstacles. However, after so many dead bodies and shoddy police work, the book became somewhat unbelievable to me. One of Don's love interests goes away quickly, and the other's issues are not explored deeply and neither is her relationship with Don. Also, a character from the past reappears in Don's life, and Don is seems to me to have too little angst and too much acceptance to be totally believable.

I did enjoy many of the plot twists and turns and there were many. From the interview below, I found out that this book was written years ago and never published at the time and Mr. Lofthouse revisited the book for the current publication, which seems to explain some of the issues I had with the story. I think Mr. Lofthouse has grown as a writer more than this novel exemplifies. I enjoyed reading the book, however, and wanted to know who the killer was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shh.. Family Secrets and Murder, well done! 23 May 2015
By Teddy - Published on Amazon.com
Don Juan Casanova was raised mostly by his grandparents and they raised him to follow in their footsteps. His Grandmother was the owner of a brothel. It was she and his grandfather that raised him to be a Lothario (a seducer of women). They taught him all the tricks in the trade and he was like a magnet for women. He could have his pick.

When he came of age he had to go off and fight in Vietnam. Like most vet who returned home, he was changed. He turned to booze and of course, lot of women to blot out the horrifying memories of war.

Now at 39 years of age, he has sworn off women, at least until he meets the one he can become faithful to. However, it isn’t that easy and he falters. So many obstacles are in his path including the the girl he rescues from a brutal pimp and the murder of his Grandfather and brother. As the evidence keeps stacking against him and the blame of the murders points to him, he must focus on proving his innocence and dodging the real killer.

There are many twist and turns in the plot that kept me turning the pages. I loved the strong cast of female characters. Books like this often have weak women who can’t think for themselves. However, Lofthouse didn’t go the “damsel in distress” way, except for the girl Don Juan rescued from the pimp. This was refreshing! Highly recommended!
3.0 out of 5 stars Warm Bodies 16 July 2016

Lofthouse's interesting premise that starts off strong, but loses steam about halfway through. As a teacher, I found that the main character's math-teacher-by-day, high class maitre'd-by-night a tad fanciful. Closing the nightclub at midnight, then getting a full day of teaching the next day, really? But not just teaching students arithmetic, but instilling life lessons on the rough and tumble inner city youth ready to take down our beefcake Viet Nam vet. Our modern day Don Juan, who has "inherited" his proclivities from great grand dad, has recently abstained, saves a prostitute from an evil pimp, stumbles on a a series of warm bodies, recently diseased. Of course, he could have any number of beautiful and vivacious ladies.
