#BlogTour: Anything for Her by G.J. Minett @GJMinett @BonnierZaffre

Today it’s my great pleasure to be joining the blog tour for Anything for Her, the latest release from author G.J. Minett. I have an extract from the book to share with you all, as well as my thoughts on the book, but first off, let’s take a look at what it is all about.

AFHThe Official Book Blurb

You’d do anything for the one that got away . . . wouldn’t you?

When Billy Orr returns home to spend time with his dying sister, he bumps into his ex-girlfriend Aimi, the love of his life. He might not have seen her in eleven years, but Billy’s never forgotten her. He’d do anything for her then, and he’d do anything for her now.

When Aimi tells him that she wants to escape her abusive husband, Billy agrees to help her fake her own death. But is she still the Aimi that Billy remembers from all those years ago? 

Once Aimi disappears, Billy has to face the possibility that perhaps she had different reasons for disappearing – reasons that might be more dangerous than she’s led him to believe . . .

Sometimes trusting the one you love is the wrong thing to do.

Festive Reads: A Christmas Flower by Bryan Mooney @RealBryanMooney @mgriffiths163

Today it’s back over to Mandie who has reviewed another festive read, this time Bryan Mooney’s A Christmas Flower.

ACF.jpgThe Official Book Blurb

When a New England Christmas reunites two lifelong friends, romance blooms. From the author of Christmas in Vermont.

Miracles are like snowflakes–no two are alike, but each one is precious and beautiful. This Christmas, Dr. Beth Harding could use a few miracles. The hospital she runs in River Dale, New Hampshire, is being shut down, unless she can convince the Scrooge-like board to save it. At least her closest friend, firefighter Logan Mitchell, is home for the holidays to offer a broad shoulder to lean on.

In California, Logan is a smoke jumper, but jumping into a romance with his best friend scares him more than any forest fire. After losing his parents at sixteen, Logan was taken in by Beth’s family. As kids, they were like brother and sister. Now they’re grown up, and sparks keep flying between them. If only Beth wasn’t already engaged. Maybe with a Christmas miracle or two, Beth can keep those hospital doors open–and two dear friends can finally allow their one true love to blossom.

Review: Mr Men & Little Miss for Grown Ups

So … I caved. I purchased the last two Mr Men and Little Miss for Grown Up books and you know what? I’m totally glad I did. They were a real hoot. The final two books are Little Miss Busy Surviving Motherhood and Mr Greedy Eats Clean to Get Lean. Here is what they are all about.

The Mr. Men have been tickling children for generations with their funny and charming antics. The Mr Men for Grown-Ups series now gives adults the chance to laugh along as the Mr Men and Little Miss try to cope with the very grown-up world around them. Featuring Roger Hargreaves classic artwork alongside hilariously funny new text.

MGMr Greedy Eats Clean to Get Lean

Mr Greedy loves to eat, but when everyone around him seems to be juicing and exercising, he decides it’s time to make some changes. Will Mr Greedy get lean with the help of his friends?

The perfect book for anyone who’s ever tried to kick start their life with a diet which promises a new improved you.

LMBLittle Miss Busy Surviving Motherhood

Little Miss Busy hadn’t always been so busy. She used to enjoy lazy weekends and leisurely lie-ins. But then she had kids. Now her life is a constant juggle of demands and pressure to be the perfect mum. How does Little Miss Busy do it?

The perfect book for anyone who has ever faced the trials and tribulations of the wonderful and exasperating world of parenthood.

#BlogTour: The Good Samaritan by John Marrs @johnmarrs1

Now then … Any one who follows the blog (that’ll be the two of you then) will know that I quite enjoyed John Marrs’ last book, The One, and if you want to know just how much, you can see my review here. So when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of the blog tour for his upcoming release, The Good Samaritan, I didn’t hesitate in saying yes. A massive thanks to John Marrs and Tracy Fenton for thinking of me, or at the very least letting me tag onto the tour … I’ll share my thoughts on this latest offering with you in just a moment, but first let’s take a look at all the official book stuff.

TGSThe Official Book Blurb

She’s a friendly voice on the phone. But can you trust her?

The people who call End of the Line need hope. They need reassurance that life is worth living. But some are unlucky enough to get through to Laura. Laura doesn’t want them to hope. She wants them to die.

Laura hasn’t had it easy: she’s survived sickness and a difficult marriage only to find herself heading for forty, unsettled and angry. She doesn’t love talking to people worse off than she is. She craves it.

But now someone’s on to her–Ryan, whose world falls apart when his pregnant wife ends her life, hand in hand with a stranger. Who was this man, and why did they choose to die together?

The sinister truth is within Ryan’s grasp, but he has no idea of the desperate lengths Laura will go to…

Because the best thing about being a Good Samaritan is that you can get away with murder.
