Without A Trace – Carissa Ann Lynch

img_2447

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the book tour for Without A Trace!

Lily’s gone.

Someone took her.

Unless she was never there…

A little girl has gone missing.

Lily was last seen being tucked into bed by her adoring mother, Nova. But the next morning, the bed is empty except for a creepy toy rabbit.

Has Nova’s abusive ex stolen his ‘little bunny’ back for good?

At first, Officer Ellie James assumes this is a clear custody battle. Until she discovers that there are no pictures of the girl and her drawers are full of unused toys and brand new clothes that have never been worn…

Is Ellie searching for a missing child who doesn’t actually exist?’

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Pip Drysdale’s The Sunday Girl 

“Any woman who’s ever been involved with a bad, bad man and been dumped understands what it feels like to be broken, broken-hearted and bent on revenge.

Taylor Bishop is hurt, angry and determined to destroy Angus Hollingsworth in the way he destroyed her : ‘Insidiously. Irreparably. Like a puzzle he’d slowly dissembled…Stolen a couple of pieces from, and then discarded, knowing that nobody would ever be able to put it back together ever again.’

So Taylor consults The Art Of War and makes a plan. Then she takes the next irrevocable step, one that will change her life forever.”

The Boy At The Door – Alex Dahl

Everyone has secrets. Even those who seem to be perfect…

On a rainy October evening, Cecelia Wilborg – loving wife, devoted mother, tennis club regular – is waiting for her kids to finish their swimming lesson. It’s been a long day. She can almost taste the crisp, cold glass of Chablis she’ll pour for herself once the girls are tucked up in bed.

But what Cecelia doesn’t know, is that this is the last time life will feel normal. Tonight she’ll be asked to drop a little boy home, a simple favour that will threaten to expose her deepest, darkest secret…’

Please Read This Leaflet Carefully – Karen Havelin

Please-Read-This-Leaflet-Carefully_DeadInk

‘Karen Havelin’s Please Read This Leaflet Carefully is a life told in reverse and a subversion of what we expect from stories of illness. Having been diagnosed with endometriosis in her twenties, we follow Laura Fjellstad in her struggle to live a normal life across New York, Paris and Oslo, fueled by her belief that to survive her chronic illness she must be completely self-reliant.

Flowing backwards from 2016 to 1995, we meet Laura’s younger selves: her healthier selves. Laura as a daughter, a figure skater, a lover, and a mother – finally leading a life her own teenage self would be in awe of.’

Take Me To The Edge – Katya Boirand

Welcome to my stop on the ‘Take Me To The Edge’ blog tour!

‘Five words are all it takes to provoke a chain of creation.

This is what Katya Boirand discovered the first time she asked a friend for five words and then turned them into a poem, using the words and the subject as her inspiration. This spark started a movement, and soon Katya was asking friends and strangers alike for their five words of choice.

Take Me To The Edge is a selection of these poems, sitting alongside a portrait of each subject, in this stunning and joyous celebration of language, connection and art.’

Just My Type – Hannah Doyle

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Just My Type by Hannah Doyle.

He’s my type on paper…but IRL?

Meet Jasmine.
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife

But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…

Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’ because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.’
