…She falls against me.  Her sandal goes skidding across the stone.  The breath stops in my throat.  My legs start to go, but Annie doesn’t give a toss.  She bounces off me, running again, laughing and spluttering like that dodgy tap.  She kicks out, sending her other sandal up into the air ahead of us.  I watch it turn, silver and gold against the dark blue clouds.  And another lorry comes roaring in.

#Extract from Virtue by @JohnMoot1 #PubDay #ContemporaryFiction #Debut @mindbuckmedia #TuesdayBookBlog

Today I’m sharing an extract from Virtue, a novel by John Moot, on publication day. Here’s what the book is about…

The Holder family is in crisis. Hannah is sick of being a stay-at-home mom marooned in a rural college town, her teenage daughter, Madison, is the subject of anti-LBGTQ bullying, and her teenage son, Dillon, is failing at school and having run-ins with the law. Hannah wants out of a life that has grown toxic to her family and to reclaim the person she once was–a confident, professional woman. Her husband Tom, a philosophy professor, once supported her plea for change–a return to Boston that would give their kids a fresh start and her the chance to get her law degree–but now his life is unravelling as he struggles to fend off attacks on his career from the college president, reconcile with his estranged, cancer-stricken father and confront a dark, hidden past. Virtue exposes, through the Holder’s journey that fateful year, the vulnerability and randomness of human existence, but also the power of redemption.

About the Book

31 Dishes in 31 Days
Following on a year later from the end of ‘The Serial Dater’ where Northampton-based technology journalist Isobel McFarlane had to date thirty-one men in thirty-one days, her health and beauty colleague, Donna Evans, is given the task of trying thirty-one under five hundred calorie dishes in thirty-one days and writing about it.

To add a complication, she has to cover her equivalent (Veronica) at their sister newspaper offices at Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England, while staying nearby with her exuberant mother, Lesley, at her house in Tring, during the week.

On Donna’s first day she meets James, a married hottie who she can’t get out of her mind.

Is the whole project a recipe for disaster or a sweet success?
