Today I have a guest post as part of the blog tour for Not Myself Today, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources.

Before Muriel’s post, here’s what the book is about…

High school soccer star Lindsey Anderson was at the top of her game with graduation approaching and a full-ride soccer scholarship offer in her hand. Then she dropped dead on the soccer field, only to wake up in the body of a teenage sex-trafficking victim. No one believes who she really is. Not even her dad. Chased by her new body’s drug-dealing pimp and rabid parapsychologists out to dissect her, Lindsey searches to get her body and her life back before graduation day. Can her BFF and the high school nerdy boy she detests help save her life?

#MiniBlogBlitz #Extract ~ Eternal Forever by Syl Waters #Mystery @waters_syl @rararesources

Welcome to the Mini Blog Blitz for Eternal Forever, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources.

Today I have an extract for you, but first we’ll see what the book is about…

Fame, glory and… foul play!

Jessie was a shop worker dreaming of the big time, then YouTube found her. But staying in the limelight requires meticulous management: pop stars are made not born.

With awards night approaching, the pressure’s on for Tito, Jessie’s manager, to whip her into shape. Getting so close wasn’t in the contract, but then neither was him being murdered in Spain.

Alone and scared of the negative publicity, Jessie turns to Mack, her account manager at Eternal Forever, the UK’s first digital legacy management agency. But Mack’s got his own issues: the company’s fast running out of cash, his key developer’s on the turn and a blogger’s suicide looks suspicious.

With the assistance of J-Pop, Mack’s assistant and wannabe reality TV star, Jessie turns sleuth. But in a world where everybody’s watching, it’s hard to escape. Reputation is everything and some people will do anything to protect it.

#BlogTour #Extract ~ Someday in Paris by Olivia Lara @olilara_writes #Romance @rararesources

Welcome to my stop of the blog tour for Someday in Paris, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources. 

Today I have an extract for you, but first we’ll see what the book is about.

‘An epic, sweeping romance about soulmates and second chances’ Holly Miller. 

‘An absolutely unforgettable love story’ Mandy Baggot. 

‘A deeply moving, richly evocative story of love, loss and the power of hope’ Miranda Dickinson. 

Finding the one is only the beginning… 

1954. Zara is fifteen the first time she meets Leon. During a power cut in a small French museum, the two spend one short hour in the dark talking about their love for art, Monet and Paris. Neither knows what the other looks like. Both know their lives will never be the same. 

1963. In Paris, Leon no longer believes he will ever find the girl he lost that night. After dreaming about him for years, Zara thinks she has already found him. When they meet at an exhibition, they don’t recognise each other – yet the way they feel is so familiar… 

Over the course of twenty years, Zara and Leon are destined to fall in love again and again. But will they ever find a way to be together? 

‘It’s about dreams and taking chances. Missed opportunities and mistakes. Loss and sacrifice. But above all, it is about love. The kind of love that survives time, distance… even death. The kind of love I wish for you.’ 

A magical new love story about star-crossed lovers, perfect for hopeless romantics and fans of One Day and The Notebook.

#Extract from Blooms Of War by Suzanne Tierney @notajaxgirl #HistoricalFiction @rararesources #Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Blooms Of War, organised by Rachel’s Random Resources. Today I have an extract for you.

Firstly, lets see what the book is about…

In war, she fell in love.

Vera Betts shouldn’t be falling in love with the enigmatic doctor she suspects of espionage. Reeling from her family’s betrayal, she’s faked her nursing credentials, invented a new name, and run away to the frontlines of the French battlefield. Four years into the Great War and she knows who she is and what she’s meant for—to save the living and sit vigil by the dying. When the cagey-yet-earnest Dr. Nicholas Wallace arrives, so do mysterious explosions destroying hospitals. Even as Nick raises her suspicions, he lowers her defenses. He wants the war to end. Are his acts of sabotage politically motivated or a desperate attempt at peace?

In peace, she fell apart.

A year later, Vera is back with her oppressive family, living under her real name, and Nick is on trial for murder. Trapped in grief and guilt, she cannot speak about the past and does not believe in the future. With Nick refusing to defend himself, she ventures to London to understand why he is so willing to embrace the hangman’s noose. Who is he trying to protect? What secrets does he plan to carry to his grave? And why does Nick insist upon hiding her true identity? To save the man she loves, Vera must tear open the past and confront the tragic price for peace.

#BlogTour #BookReview ~ Starcross Manor by @ChristieJBarlow (Love Heart Lane series) @rararesources #ContemporaryFiction #NetGalley

Today I’m sharing my review of Starcross Manor for the blog tour organised by Rachel’s Random Resources. Thanks to Rachel for my review copy via NetGalley.

My Thoughts

Julia Coleman owns and runs the bed and breakfast in Heartcross, a small village in the Scottish Highlands. Several years previously she had consoled a good friend when she was dumped on her wedding day and now she was astounded to see the erstwhile groom, millionaire property developer Flynn Carter, in the local pub. Julia had another reason to dislike the man since he had bought her beloved grandfather’s house for much less than it was worth, and then demolished it. But what was he doing in Heartcross?
