#BlogTour: Guest Post – Alice by KL Loveley (@K_L_Loveley; @EmmaMitchellFPR) #Giveaway

Today I am delighted to join the blog tour for Alice by K.L. Loveley. I have a guest post from author K.L. Loveley to share with you on her road to publication in just a moment, but first of all, here is what the book is about.

Alice -by K.L Loveley - front coverThe Official Book Blurb

Alice is near breaking point. Floods have left her beautiful dream home a damaged mess, her step children’s lack of respect is giving her migraines and, worst of all, her husband is giving her no support to lean on. Her life is slowly spiralling out of control.

When Alice’s daughter, Anne Marie, repeatedly falls victim to aggressive vandals, Alice finally can take no more. She decides to take control of the mess that has become her life, and finally frees herself from the chaos that has been bringing her down.

Freedom, however, isn’t as sweet as Alice first thought it might be. She finds herself yearning for something she can’t quite put her finger on. In her quest to find it, Alice finds herself turning to drink…

Spring Reads – Guest Review: Peanuts & Eggcups by Sara Mendes da Costa (@smendesdacosta, @authorightUKPR)

Today, as part of Spring Reading Week, I’m hading over the blog to Mandie once again who has a review of Peanuts & Eggcups by Sara Mendes da Costa. First up, here are the bookie bits.

P&EThe Official Book Blurb

For Maggie Parsons there’s only ever been one man: the stunningly delicious Luke Henderson. Unfortunately, he left her, without explanation, after their ‘first night’ together …breaking her heart in the process.

Now ten years on, without any contact, he’s back and going to her school reunion. Great! And, to confuse matters…so is his suave, sexy, brother Tony who makes a major play for Maggie, then turns up with his insufferable – supposedly ex – fiancée!

Via the reunion, a black eye, getting the sack (as a result) a madcap girlie holiday and juggling her confused emotions around the two alluring brothers…Maggie starts to build a picture of what she really wants in life.

Trouble is, Maggie’s a pawn in a game she doesn’t even know she’s playing …and things are about to get a whole lot more complicated.

Guest Review: The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty – @mgriffiths163

Today, my guest reviewer Mandie gives her thoughts on The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty.

tflThe Official Book Blurb

A fun vacation game turns destructive, exposing dark secrets, deeply buried grudges, and a shocking betrayal in Nicola Moriarity’s intriguing debut.

Four friends . . .

Joni, Deb, Eden, and Trina have been best friends since high school, sharing a bond that has seen them through their teenage years and into adulthood. But now, time and circumstance is starting to pull them apart as careers, husbands, and babies get in the way. As their yearly vacation becomes less of a priority—at least for three of the women—how can Joni find a way to draw the four of them back together?

Read a @Bookouture a Day: Angela Marsons Pt 2 – The Emotional Ones – Hankies optional (@WriteAngie)

Yes. You read that right. The emotional ones. Because before there was Kim Stone there was ‘Sensitive Angie’, or, depending on your point of view, ‘Evil Angie’, as a bit like Kelly Rimmer this woman made me cry. In public.

Earlier this year, Bookouture re-released two previously self-published titles, ‘The Forgotten Woman’ and ‘Dear Mother.’ Here I take a look back at these two very different and yet highly emotional tales.

Read a @Bookouture a Day: Featured authors – Laura Elliot and Renita D’Silva (@Elliot_Laura; @RenitaDSilva)

Today on my ‘Read a Bookouture a Day’ feature I look back at two of Bookouture’s more emotional dramas, ‘Sleep Sister’ by Laura Elliot and ‘A Mother’s Secret’ by Renita D’Silva. These two books both explore the subject of family and the devastating impact that secrets kept can have upon them. Each one takes the reader on an emotional journey, and the characters and their stories will live on long after the book is closed.
