My Review:

Having brought my own life back from the brink on several occasions, I felt that Kate Spencer’s book, Twelve Lessons would be a perfect read for me.

It’s very cleverly written as it fits into the personal development genre and yet it’s disguised as a contemporary romance. Stephanie Slater’s life falls apart at the seams, with one disaster after another landing at her feet. She attends a party where there is a Tarot reader who tells her that certain hardships are coming her way, but she refuses to believe such a charlatan. Stephanie is fine. Life is fine. Nothing could ever burst her bubble – could it? Continue reading “#TuesdayBookBlog Twelve Lessons by Kate Spencer #NewAge #Romance #BookReview”

#RBRT An Unextraordinary Life by Jo Hollywood #TuesdayBookBlog #BookReview

Title: An Unextraordinary Life

Author: Jo Hollywood

Category: Paranormal Romance

Rating: 3*

My Review:

Romance isn’t one of my favourite genres to read. However, paranormal fiction certainly is, so when I spotted that An Unextraordinary Life was a mix of the two I thought I’d give it a go.

The story switches point of view between the main characters, Tess and Jack. Tess is a young woman trying to move on with her life following the sudden death of her husband, and Jack is her dead husband back from the dead Continue reading “#RBRT An Unextraordinary Life by Jo Hollywood #TuesdayBookBlog #BookReview”

What genre do you enjoy reading?

I’m a very eclectic reader. I’m drawn mostly to women’s fiction, chick lit and romance, but also enjoy the odd horror, reading middle grade fiction aloud to my kids, writing craft books, suspense and anything else if the cover grabs my eye.

Interview – Meet author, Samantha Tonge (@SamTongeWriter) #RomanticComedy

There are certain moments in life when you have to act professional and suave, but inside you are jumping up and down like a lunatic because you’re so damn excited. I experienced one of those moments when I met today’s guest in the flesh at an event in Birmingham. If author, Samantha Tonge had any inkling about my fangirling moment she was very gracious about it – I waffled on for ages (sorry, Sam).

I’m even more delighted that she agreed to join me on my blog for a chat about her new release, Breakfast under a Cornish Sun, out TODAY!

Over to Samantha…

The Fun Stuff:

What part of the world do you come from?

Manchester, northern England. The rainiest part of England, apparently, although when I first moved up here a taxi driver said that was a rumour to keep southerners out!

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Um… probably a teacher. I used to practise marking work and signing my name. Ironically that autograph experience came in useful when I became an author!

List three words to describe yourself. Continue reading “Interview – Meet author, Samantha Tonge (@SamTongeWriter) #RomanticComedy”
