#Blogtour: Maria In The Moon by Louise Beech @LouiseWriter @OrendaBooks

It’s my great pleasure to be taking part in the blog tour for Maria In The Moon, the latest novel from Louise Beech and Orenda Books. My thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me to be a part of the tour and to Karen at Orenda for providing an advance copy of the book for review. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the book in a moment, as soon as we’ve taken a look at what it’s all about.

MITMThe Official Book Blurb

Long ago my beloved Nanny Eve chose my name. Then one day she stopped calling me it. I try now to remember why, but I just can’t.’

Thirty-two-year-old Catherine Hope has a great memory. But she can’t remember everything. She can’t remember her ninth year. She can’t remember when her insomnia started. And she can’t remember why everyone stopped calling her Catherine-Maria.

With a promiscuous past, and licking her wounds after a painful breakup, Catherine wonders why she resists anything approaching real love. But when she loses her home to the devastating deluge of 2007 and volunteers at Flood Crisis, a devastating memory emerges … and changes everything.

Dark, poignant and deeply moving, Maria in the Moon is an examination of the nature of memory and truth, and the defences we build to protect ourselves, when we can no longer hide…

Blog Tour: My Beautiful Disaster – The Road to Publication (@joannahughes77; @emmamitchellfpr)

Today I am delighted to be part of the blog tour for My Beautiful Disaster. I’ll be bringing you a Q&A with author J.D. Hughes in a moment on her road to publication but first things first – here is what the book is all about.

MBD coverThe Official Book Blurb

Daniel Dukes, millionaire extraordinaire has it all. A thriving business, good looks, power, money and women who’ll drop their drawers at the click of his skilled fingers. Just how he likes it. Everything changes one day when a stipulation in his deceased Uncle’s will, scuppers his visionary plans. The only way to get what’s rightfully his, is to marry. Who? It doesn’t matter, because the enigmatic bachelor will stop at nothing and play dirty to get what is his.

Sophia Lewis had nothing until she started working directly for Daniel at Dukes Industries. Having grown up in care, she’s tough, has an answer for everything and knows how to handle all varieties of men. For two years, Sophia has attended to her overbearing boss’ every whim. Gone above and beyond the call of duty.

When an indecent proposal presents itself, boundaries are pushed and limits are tested. Can Daniel and Sophia remain professional to fool the dead Uncle’s Lawyers? As lines become blurred and tempers become frayed, can two strong willed souls be the key to unlock each other’s hidden secrets? Or will the high price of the deal come at a devastating cost to them both?

*Warning* Mature themes and one hell of a cliff hanger!

Review: ‘Murder on the Marsh’ by Anne Penketh – guest review by @mgriffiths163


The Official Book Blurb


DI Sam Clayton has never dealt with such an extreme crime in the quiet Norfolk villages that are part of his patch. When a waitress, Emma Dawson, disappears, it looks like the police might have a serial killer on their hands. Emma seems to have been part of cultish group obsessed with contacting the dead via a medieval mystic. But a mysterious Frenchman and one of the local nature wardens are also suspects. The mystery is further complicated by the locals’ reluctance to share their secrets with the police. DI Clayton’s team also harbour some tragic secrets and it looks like only one of his detectives will be kept on, even if they do catch the vicious killer.

When another child disappears, DI Clayton faces a race against time to prevent any further crimes. Not only that, but he must confront local superstitions and keep his team under control as violence threatens to spiral out of control.

I am delighted to be able to wish a massive Happy Publication Day to Robert Bryndza. ‘Miss Wrong and Mr Right’ is being re-released today by publishers, Bookouture and it’s an absolute chortletastic gem of a book.  


Natalie Love has it all; a job she loves in a theatre she helped to develop from fledgling venue into a commercial success, and a stable relationship with yoga instructor Benjamin, the man she feels may well be ‘the one’. Not only that but her theatre is about to host Hollywood leading man, Ryan Harrison in a new limited season of Macbeth, something sure to set box office records and put the theatre firmly on the map. She has never been happier.
