IT’S COVER REVEAL TIME!!!!!!!!

It feels like it’s been AGES since I last took part in a cover reveal! I am pretty much peeing my pants*** in excitement for this one, that’s for sure!!!

(***not literally, but I am SO excited!).

Some of you eagle eyed readers may be thinking ‘I know Ger Hogan!!!!’, and you would be correct, however this ‘Ger Hogan’ has turned to the dark side, favouring Geraldine Hogan for the release of her new crime series with Bookouture! How exciting is that!

Today I have the pleasure of helping Bookouture and Geraldine, reveal the cover of ‘Silent Night’, which is due to be published on 23rd August 2019 – not TOO long!

Are you ready to see this cover?!

GH

A baby is snatched from her pram in the garden. She’s never found. Thirty years later her sister, now a mother herself, is brutally killed.

 When Anna Crowe is killed in her sleep alongside her children, the quiet local community of Corbally is shocked. It’s also a chilling reminder of  when her sister, Janey, disappeared as a baby, twenty nine years ago, never to be seen again.

 Detective Iris Locke is assigned to the case and, after a year undercover which ended in failure when her cover got blown, she’s desperate to make her mark – and to live up to the reputation of her ex-cop father, the former head of the Limerick Murder Squad.

 Jack Locke ran the investigation into the disappearance of baby Janey. But by reopening the old case, Iris is also reopening old wounds for the team. Can she untangle the dark secrets that lead to one sister vanishing and the other’s death – even if it means digging into the past of someone very close to her?

Ohhhhh my word!! Chilling? Er, hell yeah!!! If you want to get your copy pre-ordered right now, you can do so via this little link here, for a steal at 99p!

Whilst the other residents of Little Pondale are wondering what might happen next, Mia is busy worrying about her friends and trying to help them with their grief. But she needs to be careful. Just when she thought she had everything, there’s a very real chance she might lose the only thing she truly wants.

#CoverReveal! Knowing You by Samantha Tonge (@SamTongeWriter) @RaRaResources @canelo_co

Third and final cover reveal of the day is for a change of direction for a very popular author. Samantha Tonge is going a little bit darker with her brand new novel, ‘Knowing You’, and I am delighted to be revealing the cover today!
I am so intrigued! Cannot wait to read this!


An abrupt change; a new friendship; a dark secret…
  Kind-hearted Violet has never fitted in, but despite being bullied at school is now content. She is dating ambitious Lenny, has her dream job in publishing and runs a book club at the local retirement home.
 However, when her relationship with Lenny begins to falter, Violet, hurt and alone, seeks the advice of her new flatmate, Bella. She changes her image and with her head held high aims to show that she doesn’t need Lenny in her life to be happy and successful.
 Her long-term friends Mable and Farah worry about Bella’s influence and slowly Violet starts to distance herself from them. When she was a child, her closest confidant and companion was a boy called Flint. Her mother didn’t approve of their closeness and he suffered a terrible end. She won’t let the same thing happen to Bella, no matter what anyone says…
 Knowing You is about friendship and knowing who to trust with your deepest secrets; it’s about taking control of your life and not being afraid to stand out. Perfect for fans of Ruth Hogan, Gail Honeyman and Amanda Prowse

Cover reveal number two is here!! Some of you may remember this author from Nightingale Square, or even The Cherry Tree Cafe! Heidi Swain is back with a bang and I cannot WAIT to get my hands on her upcoming novel. So, without further ado, here is the stunning cover for ‘Poppy’s Recipe For Life’ by the amazing, Heidi Swain:

Treat yourself to a glorious novel full of food, sunshine, friendship and love

Things haven’t always been straightforward in Poppy’s life but her dreams are finally within her reach.
 She’s moving into a cottage in beautiful Nightingale Square, close to the local community garden, where she can indulge her passion for making preserves and pickles. She may not have the best relationship with her family but she is surrounded by loving friends, and feels sure that even her grumpy new neighbour, Jacob, has more to him than his steely exterior belies. 

But the unexpected arrival of Poppy’s troubled younger brother soon threatens her new-found happiness and as the garden team works together to win community space of the year, Poppy must decide where her priorities lie and what she is prepared to fight for …

How gorgeous is that!!!! I have every single one of Heidi’s novels in paperback,  and this one will look STUNNING beside the others!!

#CoverReveal! Unexpected by Kelly Rimmer (@KelRimmerwrites) @Phoebe_Swinburn @Headlinepg

It’s a multiple cover reveal day here at TWG, and I an soooooo excited! I love cover reveals!!! First reveal of the day is for an author who is best known for making her readers ugly cry…..all the way from a very sunny country…..

Some might say that her books are unexpected…..

Are you ready for this? I am delighted to reveal the cover of Kelly Rimmer’s upcoming novel, Unexpected. Thank you to the lovely Phoebe Swinburn for asking me to do so!

Co-parenting with her best friend. What could go wrong?

The next three decades of Abby Herbert’s life are as carefully planned out as the last three were. Best career ever? Check. Great friends, one of whom she lives with in a stunning TriBeCa apartment? Check. Perfect man to share her dream family? Surely just a matter of time. But then she gets devastating news from her doctor – if she wants to get pregnant, she needs to get started on that by…well, yesterday. On the bright side, she has the perfect person in mind to be the father.

Tech entrepreneur Marcus Ross has been harbouring decidedly not-friends feelings toward Abby. He doesn’t want to lose her and, knowing his feelings are one-sided, he’s been trying to move on. When he learns about the curveball Abby’s just been hit with, he promises to be there for her however she wants him to be, even if the idea of fatherhood is a little complicated for him right now. But it isn’t long until boundaries start to blur, and a deal struck between friends starts to turn into something perilously close to feelings that could change everything…

Unexpected by Kelly Rimmer will be published by Headline on the 28th May, but can be pre ordered now from Amazon UK.

#CoverReveal! ‘Just My Type’ by Hannah Doyle (@byhannahdoyle) @bookish_becky @headlinepg

I was asked by the fabulous, Becky Hunter, from Headline Books, to reveal the cover of Hannah Doyle’s upcoming novel. Of course I said yes!! I adored Hannah’s previous novel, ‘The Year of Saying Yes’, so it is an honour to have been asked!

‘Just My Type’ is due to be published by Headline in April 2019, but is available to pre-order right now from Amazon.

Are you ready for the cover?!??

JUST MY TYPE is the second novel from Hannah Doyle, author of the laugh-out-loud hit rom-com THE YEAR OF SAYING YES, perfect for fans of Love Island, What Fresh Hell by Lucy Vine, Anna Bell and Dolly Alderton’s Everything I Know About Love.

He’s my type on paper . . . but IRL?

Meet Jasmine.
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife

But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…

Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’, because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.

I don’t know about you, but I am so very excited to get my hands on a copy of this! It sounds right up my street! I don’t like to wish time away but hurry up April!

#BlogTour! #Review – Christmas Spirit by Nicola May (@nicolamay1) @rararesources

Another Christmas read for you all today, this time it’s for Nicola May’s ‘Christmas Spirit’. Many thanks to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite and ARC, here is my review:

It’s two days before Christmas – and Evie Harris finds herself both manless and jobless. After a chance encounter with handsome Greg (and egged on by her toy-boy-eating friend, Bea) she agrees to work at a homeless shelter on Christmas Day.


Striking up an unlikely friendship with homeless Yves, Evie begins an unwitting journey of spiritual awakening, all set against the sparkling winter backdrop of London landmarks. 


A New Year’s Eve revelation is on its way . . . but will it leave Evie with a happy heart, or will she allow the pre-Christmas past to dictate her future?

What does TWG think?

Despite being a novella sized read, ‘Christmas Spirit’ sure has Hell packs a punch in such a short space of time. Instead of doing what a lot of people do where the homeless are concerned, Evie decides to spend her Christmas giving back to the community, yet she ends up being the person who finds herself facing the harsh reality of uncertainty as she speaks to the homeless, trying to understand their situation.

Personally I think the topic of this novella is certainly poignant and one, if I’m being totally honest, I wouldn’t expect in a Christmas read. Not that that is a bad thing btw, because it isn’t. The fact I wouldn’t usually expect it meant that I sat up and took notice. I guess one might say that this nifty little book put things in perspective.

Despite the serious undertone, ‘Christmas Spirit’ made me chuckle and had that feel good element down to a fine art. I haven’t read many of Nicola May’s books but after this one I certainly will be.

A little festive firecracker!

#BlogTour! #Review – Christmas at the Beach Hut by Veronica Henry (@Veronica_Henry) @RebeccaGray @OrionBooks

I nearly bit Rebecca Gray’s hand off (not literally!!) when she asked me to be involved in the blog tour for Veronica Henry’s upcoming novel, ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’! I fangirl Veronica Henry every time she likes a tweet of mine/replies to me – can you guess that I am a HUGEEEEE fan? Thought so! Today I am super excited to be sharing my review of ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ which is set to be released on the 15th November. Many thanks to Orion for the ARC and the blog tour invite. Here is my review:

518+CQcR10L

Everyone adores Christmas . . .

Especially Lizzy Kingham. But this year, she is feeling unloved and underappreciated by her family. The present-buying, decorating and food shopping have all been left to her. So she wonders … what would happen if she ran away and left them to it?

Lizzy heads to her favourite place: a beach hut on the golden sands of Everdene. There she meets an unlikely collection of new friends, all running away from something. But the spirit of Christmas gets under Lizzy’s skin: soon the fairy lights are twinkling and the scent of mulled wine mingles with the sea air.

Back at Pepperpot Cottage, her family are desperate to find her. For Christmas isn’t Christmas without Lizzy. Can they track her down in time and convince her she means the world to them, every day of the year?

What does TWG think?

If you’re already a fan of Veronica Henry’s novels, you’ll be aware of her previous novels involving a beach hut. Whilst this latest addition to the beach hut family is indeed a relation, you do not need to read the previous books, ‘The Beach Hut’ and ‘The Beach Hut Next Door’ before tucking into this festive delight. That said, I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to read the books in order or just because, as I have never read a book by this author that I didn’t like.

Anyway, back to Christmas. I know, can you believe it’s nearly upon us? Lizzie can’t, what with being made redundant several days before the big day itself, AND getting a last-minute glitter bomb being dumped on her well thought out Christmas plan. I mean come on, don’t people realise that Christmas Day takes 364 days of planning? Every year, Lizzie loves to decorate the Christmas tree with her family, tucking into a piping hot meal and twerking to ‘The Snowman’ (maybe that’s just me…), but this year things don’t quite go to plan. Maybe Lizzie is asking for too much by wanting all of her family to get involved in the family tradition. Maybe her family are looking through their rose-tinted glasses and expect Christmas to fall down the chimney like Saint Nick himself. I don’t know. Either way, Lizzie is a bit miffed and she’s had enough.

Lizzie has some baubles, I’ll give her that! How many women would drop things for Christmas just like that? Actually don’t answer that!! Not only is Lizzie’s Christmas not going to plan, her new-found friends Harley, Leanne, and Jack, aren’t exactly feeling the Christmas spirit either. I won’t delve into the nitty gritty details, but lets just say that there are a few touching stories coming out of the mouths of the other characters.

Even though all of the characters have descended on the beach hut to get away from a traditional Christmas, I couldn’t help but feel the Christmas cheer from where I was sitting. Isn’t that what it’s all about; eating good food, being surrounded by friends and family old and new? If so, Lizzie and her new crew ticked every single box! Whilst I couldn’t imagine not being at home for Christmas Day myself, I felt a slight pang of jealousy. Everything just seemed to care free, relaxing and how it should be.

I thought the way in which Veronica Henry incorporated feelings of depression and anxiety into her storyline was brilliantly done, and something a lot of people will be able to relate with whether its due to Christmas, menopause, or something else in their lives. As someone who suffers with depression and anxiety myself due to chronic illnesses, I welcomed the topic as it highlighted just how much stigma shouldn’t be attached to it, as well as showing that even though someone is sitting there with a massive smile on their face or getting on with things like usual, it doesn’t always mean that everything is hunky dory. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not up to their loved ones to notice a change in their behaviour, however, it certainly makes a difference if people just stopped to take a moment to think about someone other than themselves as people with depression or anxiety will not go and ask for support.

‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ is a story that is not only laced with poignancy and rawness due to the topics it highlights via Lizzie and other characters, it’s also a story that is laced with oodles of festive cheer and warmth. Put it this way, if this book came with an additional festive treat, I would be shouting loudly for a tinsel blanket (only softer). Why? Because ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ is sparkly, one of a kind, cosy, and incredibly touching. A novel which glistens from every direction and fills hearts with joy every time it’s looked at.

I absolutely loved every inch of ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ and, having already read double figures worth of Christmas novels so far, I have to say that Veronica Henry’s novel is my favourite Christmas book of 2018. The warmth, the community spirit, the festivities, the heart-warming topics, the wonderful characters – just everything. I loved it all. A perfect, perfect read this Christmas and for the other 364 days of the year – outstanding!

‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ will be published on the 15th November but can be pre-ordered now from Amazon – I urge you all to pre-order or put it on your Christmas lists!!
