#FridayBookShare ~ an excellent idea created by Shelley Wilson

With the weekend approaching it’s the perfect time to seek out new books to read, so Shelley created a Friday Book Share game to help search for that ideal read.


Anyone can join in. Just answer the following F.R.I.D.A.Y. questions based on the book you’re either currently reading (or listening to, in my case) or have just finished reading. Use the hashtag #FridayBookShare and remember to tag Shelley (@ShelleyWilson72) 

First line of the book.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).

Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Your favourite line/scene.


I’m reading Scotch On The Rocks by Lizzie Lamb, a contemporary romance set in the Scottish Highlands on the fictitious Cormorant Island. 

First line of the book.

Ishabel Stuart raced her car against the combined forces of time and tide, a thunderstorm snapping at her heels. 

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

ISHABEL STUART is at the crossroads of her life. 
Her wealthy industrialist father has died unexpectedly, leaving her a half-share in a ruined whisky distillery and the task of scattering his ashes on a Munro. After discovering her fiancé playing away from home, she cancels their lavish Christmas wedding at St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh and heads for the only place she feels safe – Eilean na Sgairbh, a windswept island on Scotland’s west coast – where the cormorants outnumber the inhabitants, ten to one. 
When she arrives at her family home – now a bed and breakfast managed by her left-wing, firebrand Aunt Esme, she finds a guest in situ – BRODIE. Issy longs for peace and the chance to lick her wounds, but gorgeous, sexy American, Brodie, turns her world upside down. 
In spite of her vow to steer clear of men, she grows to rely on Brodie. However, she suspects him of having an ulterior motive for staying at her aunt’s Bed and Breakfast on remote Cormorant Island. Having been let down by the men in her life, will it be third time lucky for Issy? Is she wise to trust a man she knows nothing about – a man who presents her with more questions than answers? 
As for Aunt Esme, she has secrets of her own . . . 

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Tall, handsome, engaging.

Delightful design (add the cover image of the book).


Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Anyone who enjoys their romance with a bit extra – great location, secrets, mystery and a brilliant ‘character’ (apart from Brodie!) with a lot to say.

Your favourite line/scene.

‘Suzy’s a clever girl, she knows exactly how it works.’

‘And I don’t, is that it?’

‘Exactly. No, wait – not like Suzy. She was a mistake, a one off. But – well, you are away a great deal -‘

‘On company business,’ she reminded him.

‘A man gets lonely,’ he whined.

‘I see. So your fucking the intern over my desk is all my fault. Actually, now I think about it, I can see how that would be the case. And, to be honest, you are still in shock after learning that father left all his money to good causes and none of it to me. I understand that. One minute you’re marrying a billionaire’s daughter, the next you’re marrying one of your father’s employees. I’m guessing Suzy was a little treat you awarded yourself, to cheer you up?’

Even Jack couldn’t remain totally unaware of her sarcastic tone much longer.

  1. Thanks to Shelley for this great blogging idea and to Cathy and Rosie for their continued support of Scotch on the Rocks and my other novels. Reading that scene through again, made me smile and remember how much I enjoyed creating two contrasting characters – Gorgeous Brodie and Loser, Jack-the-lad. I think Friday Reads is an excellent initiative and will spread the word amongst my Facebook/Reviewing groups. Have a wonderful weekend, ladies. Happy reading and reviewing,.
