It’s getting hot in here!! #CoverReveal #HeatstrokeBook @BarkworthHazel @Headlinepg #comingsoon

Oh I am looking forward to reading ‘Heatstroke’! Thanks so much to Headline for asking me to take part in the cover reveal today! It’s an honour to be involved.

So, without further ado, here is the cover for ‘Heatstroke’ by Hazel Barkworth:

The summer burns with secrets…

It is too hot to sleep. To work. To be questioned time and again by the police.

At the beginning of a stifling, sultry summer, everything shifts irrevocably when Lily doesn’t come home one afternoon.

Rachel is Lily’s teacher. Her daughter Mia is Lily’s best friend. The girls are fifteen – almost women, still children.

As Rachel becomes increasingly fixated on Lily’s absence, she finds herself breaking fragile trusts and confronting impossible choices she never thought she’d face.

It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.

Intoxicating and compulsive, Heatstroke is a darkly gripping, thought-provoking novel of crossed boundaries, power and betrayal, that plays with expectations at every turn.

 

Is anyone else intrigued by this?! I cannot wait! I’m sorry to say that this book isnt being published until May 2020, but if you wish to preorder a copy you can do now via Amazon!

#CoverReveal! #IDareYou by Sam Carrington (@sam_carrington1) @AvonBooksUK

Are you a fan of the ‘Bad Sister’ that is, Sam Carrington? Of course you are!! ‘I Dare You’ to read her books….

Especially as her newest one is called ‘I Dare You’, and I am delighted to be helping Sam and Avon to reveal the cover this afternoon!

Take a look at this!!!

AN INNOCENT GAME. A SHOCKING CRIME. A COMMUNITY FULL OF SECRETS.

Mapledon, 1989
Two little girls were out playing a game of dares. Only one returned home.
The ten-year-old told police what she saw: village loner Bill ‘Creepy’ Cawley dragged her friend into his truck and disappeared.
No body was found, but her testimony sent Cawley to prison for murder. An open and shut case, the right man behind bars.
The village could sleep safe once again.

Now…
Anna thought she had left Mapledon and her nightmares behind but a distraught phone call brings her back to face her past.
30 years ago, someone lied. 30 years ago, the man convicted wasn’t the only guilty party.
Now he’s out of prison and looking for revenge. The question is, who will he start with?

Geez!! Anyone else get goosebumps on their arms after this?! You can pre-order your copy right now from Amazon! Publication date is the 12th December!

#CoverReveal! #ComingHomeToMerrimentBay by Emily Harvale (@emilyharvale) @RaRaResources

Omg, omg, omg!!! Emily Harvale is back with a brand new series!!! If you cast your mind back a couple of months, you’ll no doubt remember her ‘Lilypond Lane’ series which I, alongside many others, went completely gaga for!

I am super excited to be helping to reveal the cover of part one in Emily’s new series, ‘Coming Home to Merriment Bay’, and I cannot WAIT to lose myself in this authors writing again.

So, without further ado, check this out!!

After eighteen years apart, reclusive Cat Devon still recognises her mum’s handwriting. Plucking up the courage to open the letter, its contents send Cat and her teenage daughter, Kyra racing to Merriment Bay, the seaside village where Cat grew up.

But Cat is shocked to find the situation is worse than expected. Despite everything, Cat considers herself to be an optimist at heart and Kyra takes after her. Looking on the bright side may not improve things, but it definitely can’t make them worse.

Clearing out the house that, even now, Cat fondly thinks of as home, she stumbles upon more than just memories in the battered leather trunk in Granny Viola’s bedroom. She discovers a faded photo of an RAF pilot, a pile of unopened letters, and a mystery waiting to be solved.

Who is the man in the – clearly treasured – photo? Cat and Kyra are intent on finding out. But that’s not all Cat’s determined to do. It’s time she came to terms with her past and made peace with her mum and her gran. All the while avoiding bumping into the one man she never quite got over … and keeping a few secrets of her own.

This is Part One of a new, four-part serial. The other three parts are:

Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Two: Sparks Fly
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Three: Christmas
Coming Home to Merriment Bay – Part Four: Starry Skies

This is the start of Emily Harvale’s Merriment Bay series which is interconnected to her Wyntersleap series. Each series can be read alone, but several characters appear in both series.

If you fancy pre-ordering a copy, you can do so via Amazon UK or Amazon US

#CoverReveal! The Secret – Violet’s Story by Eliza.J.Scott (@elizajscott1) @RaRaResources

Cover reveal time!!

I am so looking forward to reading this one, and I hope you will be too once you’ve seen the cover!

Ready?

It’s been two years since glamorous and ambitious Violet Smith fell head-over-heels in love with blacksmith Jimby Fairfax, and moved back home to the North Yorkshire village of Lytell Stangdale to be with him.

Life couldn’t get much sweeter. Their romance is blooming and Romantique – the business she set up with Jimby’s sister Kitty, designing luxurious underwear and burlesque costumes with the odd wedding dress throw in – is thriving.

But on a romantic weekend break, a face from her past triggers a series of events which send Violet into turmoil. She finds herself with no alternative but to reveal a secret she’s buried deep for the past sixteen years. A secret she hasn’t shared with anyone, not even her best friends, Kitty and Molly, and they share everything.

With the revelation forcing a wedge between herself and Jimby, heartbroken Violet fears that he won’t ever be able to think of her in the same way again and won’t want anything more to do with her.

As ever, Kitty and Molly rally round, offering their advice and support but Vi is worried that keeping her secret was just a step too far for Jimby.

Will she succeed in showing him their love is strong enough to overcome it?

The Secret – Violet’s Story is book 3 in the Life on the Moors Series.

So, what do you think?! ‘The Secret – Violet’s Story’ is due to be published on the 8th July, and can be pre ordered now from Amazon UK and Amazon US. Cannot wait!!

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!

About the author.

Rosie Green has been scribbling stories ever since she was little. Back then they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by ‘the baddies’. Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all, unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.

Rosie’s brand new series of novellas is centred on life in a village café. The first two stories in the series are: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe and Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café.

I am delighted to be revealing the cover of Emily’s upcoming treat, ‘Return to Lily Pond Lane’. Here we go!!!!

Life couldn’t be better for Mia and her friends in Little Pondale – until tragedy strikes…

 

Mia Ward is on cloud nine after a magical Christmas and New Year and she isn’t the only one. Everyone on Lily Pond Lane seems to be living in blissful harmony. Until tragedy strikes… not once, but twice. And as Hettie Turner points out: ‘Bad things always come in threes.’ 

 

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

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 …
