#AnItalianIslandSummer #CoverReveal @AvonBooksUK @BlakeFriedmann

Here’s the beautiful cover of An Italian Island Summer.

I hope it tempts you to join Ursula on her physical journey to Sicily to study ceramics and work in a hotel, along with her journey of the heart about her parents’ marriage and confronting her own past (along with confronting her ex-husband).

Sicily is a beautiful island, and Ortigia, the old city of Siracusa, is particularly so. That’s where Residenza dei Tringali stands, looking out over the marina, surrounded by beautiful buildings, church bells and the sea. It’s owned by the Tringali family: Nanda, whose baby Marilù is a cutie; Agata, wise and warm and hiding a big secret; and handsome prodigal son Alfio. Ursula feels happy and content in her new life . . . until that secret of Agata’s hurts Ursula. And so begins Ursula’s journey of the heart.

An Italian Island Summer will be published in the UK in paperback, ebook and audio on 25th May 2023. Make certain to get a copy by preordering it here.

When Sky Terran returns to the village of Middledip after losing the job she loves, she anticipates a quiet Christmas getting used to her new life. However, the annual street decoration competition is coming up and this year, the residents of Winter Street are determined to win.

As she is pulled into the preparations, Sky quickly grows to love the quirky, tight-knit community she is now part of. Including the extremely handsome Daz, who soon becomes more than just a friendly neighbour.

A White Christmas on Winter Street by Sue Moorcroft

Love this review from Karen Hollis at I Heart Books!

I Heart Books

I love Sue Moorcroft’s books, they are always such a treat – warm and welcoming. So I was really looking forward to reading her latest release – A White Christmas on Winter Street. This is a standalone, though regular readers of her work will recognise the setting of Middledip.

The star of this story is Sky Terran, who is 39 years old. After resigning from her job, she goes to the house auction she’d planned to attend and ends up buying herself The Corner House on Winter Street in Middledip, the village she used to live in. But will this be the new start she so needs? When she meets Darragh ‘Daz’ Moran (42), initially it’s awkward as he lost out on buying the house to her, but later their friendship begins to grow. But is he really over his ex Abi?

You feel sorry for Sky straight away. She’s…

My first #AuthorInTheFestiveSpotlight is Sue Moorcroft | A White Christmas on Winter Street | @suemoorcroft @AvonBooksUK

Very happy to be the first ‘Author in the Festive Spotlight’ on Portobello Book Blog this year. My thanks to Joanne Baird for inviting me.

Portobello Book Blog

You might remember that last year I ran an Author in the Festive Spotlight feature last year. In this feature, authors told me about their Christmas or winter themed release and shared some of their Christmas favourites. I certainly enjoyed reading these and so did my blog readers going by the response. So I’m running this again this year with a few new questions. Over November and December, you can read two or three Festive Spotlights a week. I’m especially pleased that my first guest is Sue Moorcroft, a great favourite of mine. I’m currently reading and loving her festive release, A White Christmas on Winter Street, so you can expect to read my review very soon.

Welcome back to the blog Sue.First of all, would you tell my blog readers a little about yourself?

I write two books a year for Avon Books. I’ve known the thrill…

Book Review: Christmas Wishes by Sue Moorcroft

Yesterday, I reblogged Hannah’s review of A White Christmas on Winter Street. She took the time to read Christmas Wishes, too, where we first meet Nan Heather. Here’s her review.

This Hannah Reads

When I was listening to Sue talking about her newest book A White Christmas on Winter Street she was saying that it was a return to Middledip and was focused on another of Nan Heather’s children. This made me realise that there was a prequel of sorts and Christmas Wishes was the first book where we get to meet Nan Heather and I just had to read that first so here we are!

Genre: Christmas Romance
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Pages: 400

What’s the book about?

Hannah and Nico are meant to be together.

But fate is keeping them apart…

As soon as Hannah bumps into her brother Rob’s best friend Nico in Stockholm, the two rekindle a fast friendship. But Hannah has a boyfriend – and Nico has two children to look after.

When Hannah loses her beloved shop in Stockholm, though, she is forced to move back to the little…

A White Christmas on Winter Street – publication day!

Every publication day brings fresh joy. It’s the reward for many months of work and worry, edits and head-scratching. Something that began with an idea and a page of scribble appears on supermarket shelves with gold foil and shiny touches. It has my name on the cover.

At the risk of sounding like an Oscar winner, I’d like to thank everyone involved: my agent Juliet Pickering and everyone at Blake Friedmann Literary Agency who will be trying to sell it on to other markets; and editor Thorne Ryan and all at Avon Books UK. This latter includes marketing and publicity, sales, the typesetter, the proofreader, the copy editor and no doubt others that slip beneath my radar. To write a book takes one person but to publish it takes a team.

And, of course, I’d like to thank everybody who buys the book or borrows it from a library, who posts a review (especially the nice ones), tells their friends about the book or talks about it online. Readers are everything to a writer.

Here’s the blurb for A White Christmas on Winter Street, which is available from today:

When Sky Terran returns to the village of Middledip after losing the job she loves, she anticipates a quiet Christmas getting used to her new life. However, the annual street decoration competition is coming up and this year, the residents of Winter Street are determined to win.

As she is pulled into the preparations, Sky quickly grows to love the quirky, tight-knit community she is now part of. Including the extremely handsome Daz, who soon becomes more than just a friendly neighbour.

But when Daz’s ex turns up determined to win him back and it seems he might not be the man Sky thought he was, she remembers how much allowing people into her life – and heart – can hurt. As the snow falls, will she and Daz find a way through – and help win a Christmas victory for Winter Street?

Publication day in Germany

The cover image of 'Sternschnuppenfunkeln' (Under the Mistletoe)

Today sees the publication of ‘Sternschnuppenfunkeln‘ (UK title Under the Mistletoe) in Germany. I love my German covers as they always look as if they’re straight out of a fairytale. Doesn’t it look as if a Christmas market is about to take place in the background?

A White Christmas on Winter Street is available for preorder now

It’s only a month until A White Christmas on Winter Street hits bookshelves and reading devices!

I’m excited that soon readers will meet Sky Terran, who was fostered in Middledip village, where she discovered what a real Christmas could be. After her friendship with her erstwhile foster brother Freddy implodes, she returns to buy the tattiest house in the village. It’s unfortunate that Daz Moran had his eye on The Corner House for a business opportunity that would give him his own fresh start…till Sky outbid him.

Overflowing with Christmassness and joy, but also tricky family history and themes to reflect upon, I loved writing A White Christmas on Winter Street. If you think you might enjoy reading it you can

preorder it now.
