Let It Snow by @SueMoorcroft #review and #extract @avonbooksUK

Thanks to Joanne of Portobello Book Blog for helping me celebrate paperback publication day of Let It Snow with this inventive review and an extract from the book.

Portobello Book Blog

Recipe for a perfect Christmas read (also known as my review!)

Take one familiar and well loved village (Middledip)

Add a cosy village pub (The Three Fishes)

Ensure that your heroine (Lily) is down to earth, likeable but not without some pretty big secrets

Pre-heat the boss (That’ll be Isaac!)

Dollop in a lovable Dalmatian called Doggo

Add a generous helping of romance

Whisk in some simmering attraction

Stir in some difficult family situations

Carefully blend through some serious issues

Throw in a trip to Switzerland

Coat the mountains with a generous dusting of snow

Sprinkle in some Swiss chalets and twinkling fairy lights

Combine with Christmas markets and delicious sounding food and drink

Add a little Christmas adventure

Mix in more than a hint of spice

Blend together carefully

Don’t forget to sing a few Christmas carols and songs as you wait for the mix to mature

Best enjoyed…

‘Let it Snow’ – #coverreveal!

Screenshot 2019-08-14 at 08.36.44

 

It’s always a huge thrill to show everyone a new cover and this is a particularly beautiful and eye-catching one don’t you think? Even Doggo the dalmatian is featured. He belongs to my hero Isaac but has to be looked after in Switzerland by Lily for a while.

I’m delighted that My Weekly is hosting this cover reveal! To celebrate, they’re giving you a free read of one of my past stories with them.

Click here to read Shane’s Pride.

Here’s a little more about Let it Snow:

Lily Cortez is in Middledip to be near her half-brother. He doesn’t know she exists but Lily, who is part of a non-conventional family and has two mums, has discovered she’s not the product of a one-night stand, as she’d always been told. Her mum Roma had an affair with a married man.

Isaac O’Brien comes to The Three Fishes as relief manager when Tubb from the Pub becomes ill. Isaac gets sucked into Lily’s search for another of her natural relations, a search that takes her from the frosty cottages of Middledip to the snow-decked mountains of Switzerland. But Isaac’s past is about to call him home to England, leaving Lily to get a minibus full of villagers and a dog home on her own.

Looking forward, in November the lovely folk at My Weekly will be making my last year’s serial, A Real Middledip Christmas, available as a free online read. It comes the year before Let it Snow and will show you a couple of old friends from Middledip finding love together. Keep an eye out for that!

I’m thrilled to be able to share with you that Let it Snow is available for preorder now!

BBC Radio Northampton @BBCNorthampton #localradio

 

 

Just to let you know a couple of radio dates I have coming up:

2 MAY 2019, around 10.15 am, I’ll be on BBC Radio Northampton chatting to Bernie Keith. Why? Because it will be publication day for A Summer to Remember!

It’s always great to see Bernie, his lovely dog Riley and ace producer Sarah. We’ll chat about the book and whatever’s happening in my life and Bernie’s.

24 MAY 2019, at noon, I’ll join Helen Blaby for the ‘In the Chat Room’ feature. It’s always fun! Helen assembles a great panel of two or three guests. We choose our subjects ahead of time and sometimes we even get around to talking about our choices … Last time we seemed to segue from summer holidays to sexual identity – both subjects on which everyone had an opinion.

Here are some of the ways you can listen in: 104.2 FM, 103.6FMDABFreeview channel 734 – RDS = BBC Nhtn https://www.bbc.co.uk/radionorthampton
