~ Publisher’s Description ~

Roxy’s marriage has always been rock solid.

After twenty years, and with two carefree kids, she and Dave are still the perfect couple. Until the day she comes home unexpectedly, and finds Dave in bed with their attractive, single neighbour.

Suddenly Roxy isn’t sure about anything – her past, the business she’s taken over from her dad, or what her family’s future might be. She’s spent so long caring about everyone else that she’s forgotten what she actually wants. But something has changed. And Roxy has a decision to make.

Whether it’s with Dave, or without him, it’s time for Roxy to start living for herself . . .

I’m currently reading and enjoying The Guest List by Lucy Foley. Watch out for my review on 29th February.

The Guest List by Lucy Foley

On an island off the windswept Irish coast, guests gather for the wedding of the year – the marriage of Jules Keegan and Will Slater.
 
Old friends.
Past grudges.
 
Happy families.
Hidden jealousies.
 
Thirteen guests.
One body.
 
The wedding cake has barely been cut when one of the guests is found dead. And as a storm unleashes its fury on the island, everyone is trapped.

All have a secret. All have a motive.
One guest won’t leave this wedding alive . . .

Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane

On Tuesday, I shared my review of Ask Again, Yes by Mary Beth Keane as part of the Michael Joseph blog tour. This seems to be the book of the moment and yes, it is worth the hype. It is a powerful and moving family saga.

I also did some behind the scenes work on the blog and added a Reviews A-Z by Book Title to the Reviews section. I’m not sure I’ve ever realised how many book titles actually start with ‘The’ or ‘A’ until I started organising the reviews this way!

~ On social media ~

For #ThrowbackThursday, I shared the link to my first ever blog review. It was for The Forgotten Summer by Carol Drinkwater, published by Michael Joseph in July 2016, and I had forgotten that I had written this review in the style of a letter to the author. The Forgotten Summer is a page-turner that will have you wanting to book a flight to Provence immediately!


On Friday, I supported author Louise Jensen with a little teaser for her new book The Family, due to be published by HQ, Harper Collins, in October. Next week, I’ll share what we did on Tuesday!

~ On my bookshelf ~

I added 4 books to my bookshelf this week.

On Wednesday, I met up with fellow book bloggers Linda (Linda’s Book Bag), Sharon (Shaz’s Book Blog) and Karen (My Reading Corner) to go to the Rooftop Book Club, hosted by Headline Publishing, Hodder & Stoughton and Quercus with Prima magazine. Authors Sheila O’Flanagan, Beth O’Leary and Chrissie Manby discussed their latest books, writing processes, their lives as authors and other bookish things. The panel was chaired by the fabulous Nina Pottell, Prima books editor. Of course, I couldn’t leave without signed copies of their books!

The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

Tiffy Moore and Leon Twomey each have a problem and need a quick fix.

Tiffy’s been dumped by her cheating boyfriend and urgently needs a new flat. But earning minimum wage at a quirky publishing house means that her choices are limited in London.

Leon, a palliative care nurse, is more concerned with other people’s welfare than his own. Along with working night shifts looking after the terminally ill, his sole focus is on raising money to fight his brother’s unfair imprisonment.

Leon has a flat that he only uses 9 to 5. Tiffy works 9 to 5 and needs a place to sleep. The solution to their problems? To share a bed of course…

As Leon and Tiffy’s unusual arrangement becomes a reality, they start to connect through Post-It notes left for each other around the flat.

Can true love blossom even in the unlikeliest of situations?
Can true love blossom even if you never see one another?
Or does true love blossom when you are least expecting it?


Three Days in Florence by Chrissie Manby

When a mini-break becomes make or break…

Three Days in Florence by Chrissie Manby

Kathy Courage has never visited the famous Italian city of Florence before, so she’s thrilled when she and her boyfriend Neil are invited there for a wedding. Unfortunately, with Neil’s constant complaining and his teenage children in tow, it’s not exactly the romantic break Kathy was hoping for.

But when a mix-up with her flights leaves Kathy stranded in the city, she decides to embrace the unexpected and stay on alone.

What follows is a life-changing few days in the Tuscan sun, as Kathy begins to question the choices that have led her here. With the help of the colourful Innocenti family, who offer Kathy a place to stay, she gradually begins to realise that there’s a much bigger world out there, if only she can be brave enough to explore it.

Could Italy hold the answers to her future happiness? Or is Kathy destined to return to her old life?


In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle

The lovely organisers of the Rooftop Book Club put together a great goodie bag and included this proof copy of In Five Years by Rebecca Serle. It’s due out in the UK in March 2020 and sounds fab! I can’t wait to read it.

Where do you see yourself in five years? 


Type-A Manhattan lawyer Dannie Kohan has been in possession of her meticulously crafted answer since she understood the question. On the day that she nails the most important job interview of her career and gets engaged to the perfect man, she’s well on her way to fulfilling her life goals.


That night Dannie falls asleep only to wake up in a different apartment with a different ring on her finger, and in the company of a very different man. The TV is on in the background, and she can just make out the date. It’s the same night – December 15th – but 2025, five years in the future.

In Five Years by Rebecca Serle


It was just a dream, she tells herself when she wakes, but it felt so real… Determined to ignore the odd experience, she files it away in the back of her mind.
That is, until four and a half years later, when Dannie turns down a street and there, standing on the corner, is the man from her dream…
