Cover Reveal – The Best Boomerville Hotel by Caroline James @RubyFiction

Today I am honoured to be part of the cover reveal for the first book for Choc Lit’s Ruby Fiction Imprint!

Let the shenanigans begin at the Boomerville hotel …

Jo Docherty and Hattie Contaldo have a vision – a holiday retreat in the heart of the Lake District exclusively for guests of ‘a certain age’ wishing to stimulate both mind and body with new creative experiences. One hotel refurbishment later and the Best Boomerville Hotel is open for business!

Perhaps not surprisingly Boomerville attracts more than it’s fair share of eccentric clientele: there’s fun loving Sir Henry Mulberry and his brother Hugo; Lucinda Brown, an impoverished artist with more ego than talent; Andy Mack, a charming Porsche-driving James Bond lookalike, as well as Kate Simmons, a woman who made her fortune from an internet dating agency but still hasn’t found ‘the One’ herself.

With such an array of colourful individuals there’s bound to be laughs aplenty, but could there be tears and heartbreak too and will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?

‘Britain’s answer to the Best Marigold Hotel! Book me in for Sharing with the Shaman and Clairvoyance in mid-life – this book is fabulous!’

Nikki Ashton, Amazon best-selling author

 

And how gorgeous is the cover?

What does TWG think?

What an opening!! The first couple of pages of this novel had me absolutely gripped. Will they survive or won’t they? How would they come back from the devastating situation they witnessed? Only time would tell, but it was going to be a rollercoaster ride of a journey, whichever way it went.

It was…

A Chat With… Author Rachel Dove

What a lovely blog – really enjoyed this interview 🙂

Chicks,Rogues and Scandals

I have the very great pleasure of welcoming contemporary romance author Rachel Dove to Chicks, Rogues and Scandals. Sit back and Lets get to know a bit about Rachel…

“I am a wife, mother of two boys, perpetual student, avid reader and writer of words. I sometimes sleep, always have eye bags and dream of retiring to a big white house in Cornwall, with 2 shaggy dogs, drinking wine on my seafront balcony whilst creating works of romantic fiction. All done with immaculate make up and floaty dresses. In the meantime I nearly always remember to brush my hair, seldom have time to look in a mirror and write many, many to-do lists. 

My first solo novel, Crossing Life Lines is out now in Kindle and paperback format. Look out for my horror shorts, published through Bayou Brew Publishing: The House of Sugar Blood, August 2013 and Uni Assassin, out now…

Author’s chats with Rachel Dove

Thanks for having me on your blog! xxx

The Grey Traveller

Rachel DoveThank you to Rachel Dove for agreeing to be on the Author chat’s strand of my blog. I asked Rachel a few questions about her favourite books and also about her writing practice…. here is what she said.

Who was your favourite childhood author or book and why were they a favourite?

I loved many, but Roald Dahl sticks in my mind. I loved that his stories were so funny, and so uplifting, but also very dark. When I read Boy, I was transfixed. My eldest son is reading it now, and it’s lovely to share the fun with him again. I am so glad that his stories are still being enjoyed by so many.

When did you start writing and when and what was your first publication?

I started writing as soon as I could pick up a pen, and my first publication was a reader’s letter in a…

Happy New Year!

I just wanted to drop in to say happy new year to you all, and to let you know that my next book, The Long Walk Back, will be out in ebook from HQ Digital on 11th January 2018.

The cover is amazing, and I am so blessed to have a great design team at Harper Collins to create the covers of my books!

This story started out as my NaNoWriMo in 2016, and I really love the story. So scared about this one too, as it is very different to my Westfield books. I really hope people love it as much as I do!

Interview with Lynda Stacey – Choc Lit author of The House of Christmas Secrets

 

HOCS_v2.4.jpg

Today I am honoured to share an interview with successful romantic suspense author, Lynda Stacey who writes for Choc Lit. The House of Christmas Secrets is her third book, and it’s a cracker!

Here’s what Lynda had to say:-

Well, here it is. The book I always said I’d never write. For some reason I was
very nervous about writing it. I really wanted to do the story justice because
over the years I’ve watched far too many film sequels that were never as good
as the original film and for me, this made writing the sequel to House of
Secrets quite a challenge. I only wanted it to exist if it were as good as House
of Secrets, if I could bring the hall and its characters back to life, and to give
them a whole new story and plot, which again was just a little more than
difficult when I felt as though I’d tied up up all the loose ends.

My novel starts one year on from where House of Secrets ended. All of the
original cast are within the book, once again we get to meet Madeleine,
Bandit, Nomsa and Poppy, but this story follows Jess, Madeleine’s sister and
we begin where she’s wishing that this year they all have a nice, normal
Christmas.

However, anyone who’s read any of my books will know that nice and normal
are never part of my plot…which leaves the question… what will happen and
will Jess get the Christmas and wedding she wishes for?

Review

Lynda is not wrong, she does like to put her characters through the wringer, and I knew that this one wouldn’t be any different. We all fell in love with Bandit, and rooted for the sisters to find love and happiness, and ultimately peace. This book starts a year on, and Lynda’s easy flow of writing style quickly got me hooked right back into the plot. I won’t give away any spoilers, but as sequels go, it’s amazing – and another big hit for this pull no punches author. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next! 5 stars from me.
