Time for a @bombshellpub #CoverReveal! #LittleWhiteLies&Butterflies @SuzieTullett

Weekly Wrap Up! (1)
I am UBER excited (& honoured) this morning, as I was specially asked to help reveal Suzie Tullett’s brand new book cover -bounces-. Once you see this gem of a cover, I’m sure you’ll be wanting to read it as much as I do. Get in the queue though, yeah? 😉

You ready guys and gals?

I can’t hear you! I said…

ARE YOU READY?!?!

white lies final
Lydia knows first-hand that ‘having it all’ isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. As far as she’s concerned, when it comes to job versus family, it’s a case of one or the other. And whilst most women her age have spent years climbing the corporate ladder, she’s made a career out of bagging her perfect man. Now nearly thirty and still single, Lydia wonders if she’d made the right choice.

Realising the time has come to take stock, she goes against her family’s wishes and goes travelling in the hope of finding a new direction. At least that’s the plan.

So when Sam comes along, she decides to tell a little white lie, re-inventing herself as a professional chef – not exactly the best new identity for a woman who can’t cook. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long and when her family show up unexpectedly things go from bad to worse…

Can Lydia find love? Will she ever learn to cook?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the butterflies!

Cannot wait to read this one, although it sounds like it shouldn’t be read on an empty stomach!! I wonder!

Are you a fan of Suzie Tullett already? Are you looking forward to her new book? Let me know!!

#BlogTour! #Review – Love at the Italian Lake by @DarcieBoleyn @canelo_co

Love at the Italian Lake Blog Tour Header
FINALLLYYYYYYY!! It’s my turn to host a stop on Darcie Boleyn’s blog tour!! I am thrilled to be part of such a star studded blog tour! Huge thanks to Ellie for asking me to be involved!

darcie
On the shores of Lake Garda, a beautiful romance unfolds. But is it only for summer? Don’t miss this gorgeous, heart-warming novel from Darcie Boleyn, bestselling author of 2017 smash-hit Summer at Conwenna Cove.

Sophia Bertoni discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, and realizes her life is going nowhere. Leaving her high-pressure job, she travels to Italy to stay with her grandmother while she figures out her next move.

When Sophia – quite literally – bumps into devastatingly handsome Joe Lancaster her plans are turned upside down. As the two realize they’re both spending the summer in the same town, a love affair seems on the cards.

But Sophia and Joe are both burdened by family secrets. Despite their attraction, will the sun set on Sophia and Joe’s romance – or will they find love at the Italian lake?

What does TWG think?

I feel like a worn out record where Darcie Boleyn’s books are concerned! Having read every single book that the author has published, I have never read one of her books that I didn’t like. Ever. Including her new book, and no, I’m not just saying that because I happen to share a name with one of the characters in this book! Squeal!

Once again, Darcie Boleyn captivates her readers with minimal effort, putting them under her literary spell just-like-that. Being knocked over by a Chris Hemsworth lookalike would be any hot-blooded woman’s ultimate fantasy (well, seeing as this blog post is pre-watershed…use your noggin). Unfortunately for our main character, Sophia, she didn’t take too kindly to being knocked off her feet. In all honesty, I don’t think I would either but I’m sure I wouldn’t take long to forgive a Chris Hemsworth lookalike…

Whilst the gentleman character was a welcome addition to the storyline, the real gem of the story in my eyes was Sophia’s Nonna. There are moments in life where we just need a hug…no sad attempt at empathy by people who haven’t a clue what they’re saying; just an old-fashioned hug by someone who can keep you safe in their arms. For Sophia, that safety net was her Nonna. What a beautiful, beautiful character. I absolutely loved her to pieces.

Poor Sophia has had a hard time of it lately, so jetting off to hotter than hot Italy, and living life outside of her comfort zone, is exactly what the doctor ordered. What Italy had in store for Sophia though, was a humorous and heart-warming surprise.

Obviously I don’t wish to give anything away, so I’ll keep this brief. Honestly, I really have no idea how Darcie Boleyn does it, I really don’t.

Beautiful setting – CHECK.
Interesting main character – CHECK.
Loveable/intriguing additional characters – CHECK.
A Chris Hemsworth lookalike – CHECK.
A storyline to keep you hooked from the very first page – CHECK.

I mean, what more could you possibly want? ‘Love at the Italian Lake’ grabbed a hold of my heart and didn’t let go; even weeks after finishing the novel. I laughed. I smiled. I became teary. But most importantly, I loved. I loved every single word, every single page, every single situation that came up in this storyline.

In my eyes, a Darcie Boleyn novel is just like a Nonna hug for Sophia; homely, loving, flawless…and unbelievably perfect.

Spot on, once again.

Thanks Canelo.

*The new, deliciously festive ‘Cosy’ novel from Caroline Roberts is available to pre-order now!*

The snow is falling, the hot chocolate’s warming, and hearts are melting . . .

Emma is the proud owner of The Chocolate Shop by the Sea, nestled in the heart of the cosy seaside village that’s become her home. With Christmas right around the corner, she and her assistant Holly are busy cooking up the locals’ festive favourites.

From cinnamon hot chocolates to reindeer lollipops, Christmas wouldn’t taste the same without a little cocoa magic. And for Emma it’s the perfect distraction from her romantic pains of the past. So when the shop’s miserly landlord threatens to hike up the rent, Emma’s Christmas and New Year suddenly look a lot less cheerful.

With the whole village rallying behind her – and loyal spaniel Alfie by her side – Emma’s determined to hold onto her chocolate-box dream.

The chocolate calendar countdown is on. Can Emma rescue her business and her broken heart?

COLD BLOOD by ROBERT BRYNDZA
(Detective Erika Foster Book 5)
Out on 20th September

 
The suitcase was badly rusted, and took Erika several attempts, but it yielded and sagged open as she unzipped it. Nothing could prepare her for what she would find inside…

When a battered suitcase containing the dismembered body of a young man washes up on the shore of the river Thames, Detective Erika Foster is shocked. She’s worked on some terrifying cases but never seen anything like this before. 

As Erika and her team set to work, she makes the link with another victim – the body of a young woman dumped in an identical suitcase two weeks ago. 

Erika quickly realises she’s on the trail of a serial killer who’s already made their next move. Yet just as Erika starts to make headway with the investigation, she is the victim of a brutal attack. 

But nothing will stop Erika. As the body count rises, the twin daughters of her colleague Commander Marsh are abducted, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Can Erika save the lives of two innocent children before it’s too late? She’s running out of time and about to make a disturbing discovery…there’s more than one killer

Brilliantly gripping, Cold Blood will have you hooked from the first page and holding your breath to the heart-stopping and shocking ending

Aren’t I nice! Two cover reveals in two days – you’re getting spoilt!! Today I am helping Avon Books to reveal the cover of Elisabeth Carpenter’s new book. Before I do, I have a feeling I know where the 100th balloon went – my daughter burst it. No, really, she actually did. Maybe that’s why it’s now only 99 balloons?

Two girls go missing, decades apart. What would you do if one was your daughter?

When eight-year-old Grace goes missing from a sweetshop on the way home from school, her mother Emma is plunged into a nightmare. Her family rallies around, but as the police hunt begins, cracks begin to emerge.

What are the secret emails sent between Emma’s husband and her sister? Why does her mother take so long to join the search? And is Emma really as innocent as she seems?

Meanwhile, ageing widow Maggie Taylor sees Grace’s picture in the newspaper. It’s a photograph that jolts her from the pain of her existence into a spiralling obsession with another girl – the first girl who disappeared…

This is a gripping psychological thriller with a killer twist that will take your breath away.

After all, she has had some misadventures as a playground mother (who hasn’t, right?!), her Kitty decided to go on a countryside dream (lucky Kitty), then her alter ego, Evie, had the bright idea of skipping a year and taking chances instead. This was all before taking the author too themselves off on a Christmas escape as someone called Lizzie! -breathes-. This woman never stops! She is even going on a cosy canal boat dream in August!

No, really, she is. She has also invited all of you guys too….you only need to bring your kindle and approximately £1.99 (subject to change). Who’s up for it?!?!

About the author

Louise Jensen always wanted to be Enid Blyton when she grew up, and when that didn’t happen she got a ‘proper’ job instead.

Several years ago an accident left Louise with a disability and she began writing once again, to distract her from her pain and compromised mobility. But writing turned out to be more than just a good distraction. Louise loves creating exciting worlds, dark characters, and twisted plots.

Louise lives in Northamptonshire with her husband, sons, a puppy and a rather naughty cat, and also teaches mindfulness.
