TWG would like to give a warm welcome to Elly Redding and her debut novel, True Colours, as this is the FIRST time Elly has appeared on TWG! How exciting! Well, this visit is an indirect one via her book, but that still counts though, right? To help me on my stop today I am joined by an enticing EXTRACT, giddy GIVEAWAY and of course my RAVISHING review; can’t complain with that!

To tickle your tastebuds, lets kick off with an extract of True Colours by Elly Redding, which is available to buy right now (links below):

“Go away,” she shouted frantically reassessing her options.
“I don’t really think you’re in a position to make demands, do you, trapped as you are?
Unless, of course, you’re thinking of taking up abseiling. In which case, may I advise restraint? You’re on the fourth floor. You’re afraid of heights and I’m not standing in the right place to catch you.”
Good. It would ruin the whole point of the exercise if he was. She didn’t tell him that though. Instead she suggested he make an appointment, that if he wanted to see her, he should do what everyone else did.
“But I’m not everyone else, am I? I’m the guy who’s still considering suing you for breach of contract.”
“Contract – what contract?”
“Your promise to marry me.”
“You bastard.” It was the first thing she could think of to say, but she thought it summed up the situation perfectly. “In which case, may I suggest you contact my lawyer? I think you’ll find I’ve a very strong case for a counter claim. Or has something conveniently slipped your memory? Let me give you a clue. She had an amazing pair of breasts.”

Blurb.

Could you ever trust again – the man who broke your heart?

Kate Fenton thought she’d got the answer to that question all neatly sewn up. Ever since she went to Saul Preston’s London art gallery, a month before their wedding, and found him with his assistant – who looked as if she was in the middle of a game of strip poker.
Now, three years later, she’s no longer so sure. Saul’s back in her life with a new proposition – accompany him on a trip to Majorca as his interpreter. It’s an offer Kate can’t refuse, even though she knows she should. Successful and rich, he’s just the sort of client her translation company is trying to attract – even if he is her two-timing ex!
Saul’s never gone in for second chances. He’s never had the time, but he knows exactly what he’s doing when he suggests the trip to Kate. As gorgeous and infuriatingly easy to fall for as ever, he’s determined to rekindle their past. And he’s only got 3 days to do it…

What does TWG think?

‘True Colours’ could not have come at a better time. I had finished a book the night before and I was starting a brand new day with a brand new book. The thing was, I felt like utter shizmanizzle thanks to illnesses and I need to read a book that just let me…be. A book where no PHD or Oxford dictionary is needed. A book that literally does the talking for you and lets you soak up the storyline like a sponge; effortlessly. Just like Elly Redding’s ‘True Colours’.

Kate Fenton runs her own company which, of course, is brilliant. The not so brilliant thing is that her ex, Saul Preston, wants to hire her company for a job abroad. Sorry, sorry, not her company; her. Probably not the most daring thing for an ex to ask you to do, but it’s a BIT random considering they haven’t had any dealings with each other for many years and Kate isn’t exactly his number one fan after the whole gallery, breasts debacle.

I took to Kate’s character straight away as she is so energetic, rather naive yet such a warm character. Definitely one of a kind and most certainly relatable. After all, we have all hidden from our exes before, right?
The relationship that Saul and Kate have is a teensy bit predictable and it’s clear that they have some unresolved issues to try to move on from. I worked out where the storyline was heading, but, even though that part of the storyline was semi clear, it was all of the situations in between that surprised me the most.

Even though the predictability factor was there, it was still hidden under a mist of secrecy. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t find a way of working out how to clear that mist. Well, except reading it of course, but you know what I mean. There seemed to be something that was being left unsaid but there were no clear pointers as to what it was; I LOVED that. I was hooked by the storyline anyway, but the added something something was such a genius addition. For me, that addition turned an otherwise predictable relationship into an unpredictable situation of sheer uniqueness and promise. It was different, it was quirky, it was humorous and it even brought a little warmth to my cheeks if you catch my drift!

. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, so much in fact that I read it in a couple of hours!
‘True Colours’ is THE ideal book to read if you just need to detach yourself from monotonous daily life and black and white personalities. Cleverly written with relatable and humorous situations, Elly Redding is an exciting author to watch for 2017. Never mind having a black and white personality when you can show your True Colours and live a little; just like Kate.

Thank you BrookCottageBooks & Elly.
