A fortuitous mailbox this week for me, as I’ve been hit by the lurgy and really don’t feel like doing much at all (except lying around and reading).
Jilted by Rachael Johns is her first rural romance, set in the small town of Hope Junction and starring soap star Ellie and golden boy Flynn. The Road to Hope is also set in Hope Junction and tells the story of ‘nasty nurse’ Lauren and Dr Tom – is this a fling or something more? The King’s Sister by Anne O’Brien starts in 1380 with a wedding between Elizabeth Plantagenet and the Earl of Pembroke (who just happens to be 8 years old) and continues with rebellion, divided loyalty and scheming.
If She Did It by Jessica Treadway is a thriller, where a mother suspects her child of a horrible crime, if only she could remember the details… Thanks to The Reading Room and Hachette for this book. The Chocolate Promise by Josephine Moon promises to be another delicious tale in the vein of The Tea Chest. It’s set in a chocolate shop in Tasmania and the heroine, Christmas has 10 rules for happiness – number 10 is ‘absolutely no romantic relationships’. Of course, that means no time for the perfect man… Thanks again to The Reading Room and Allen & Unwin for this book that is certain to induce chocolate cravings… Last but not least, Jenn J McLeod’s latest book, Season of Shadow and Light arrived from Simon & Schuster for a blog tour in May. It’s about Paige, who has a stroke shortly after the birth of her baby. Now she’s lost the sense of smell and taste (essential things for a food reviewer) and her marriage is falling apart. Sounds like a road trip is in order…and for me, a date with the couch
