3 Sixty Five Blog

For several years I wrote a book blog and accumulated reviews of some really good reads. I saw on Twitter that Renee at It’s Book Talk started using the #ThrowbackThursday meme as a way to share books that are old favourites or have been waiting to be read for a long time. I decided to visit my old book reviews and re-post my favourites here on 3sixtyfiveblog for #ThrowbackThursday.

So far I’ve included:

An Englishwoman’s Guide to the Cowboy by June Kearns

Kings and Queens by TerryTyler

Blood-Tied by Wendy Percival

Make a Joyful Noise by Jenny Worstall

Everybody Lies by Julia Hughes

and Boot Camp Bride by Lizzie Lamb.

This week it’s the Heartfelt Series by Adrienne Vaughan.

The Heartfelt Series is a trilogy of romantic novels each one of which is difficult to put down!

Boot Camp Bride is romantic novelist Lizzie Lamb’s second book but it was the first of her stories I read.

New Novel – Take Me, I’m Yours – a Wisconsin love story

Loving this blog about Lizzie Lamb’s latest fab novel!

I hope you’re having a great summer and enjoying these endless days of sunshine. It reached over 35 degrees in SCOTLAND (Motherwell) when I was there this summer researching my next novel. However, I turned my back on the glorious sunshine and spent time in the caravan putting the finishing touches to Take My, I’m Yours. IMG_1975(1)

For some of the time, I was working with my formatter, Sarah Houldcroft of Goldcrest Books almost 600 miles away in Leicestershire. In one hilarious incident I had to travel across north-west Sutherland to find a phone signal in order to finalise the last details with her. Then I was forced to sit in the car park of the Fisheries Dept in Lochinver to check through and upload the final version of the novel.
See how I suffer for my art?

Anyhoo, here’s the blurb  – I hope it’ll tempt you to download a copy of

Where did the inspiration for Girl in the Castle come from?

IMG_0181We were touring Scotland in our caravan and decided to travel as far north as Fort William. Rounding a bend, we saw cars double-parked in a layby and tourists taking photographs of the loch. When I looked over my shoulder, I saw Castle Stalker for the first time in all its glory. We pulled in to Castle Stalker View café and walked down to the side of the loch to get a better view. Something about the castle made shivers of excitement run down my spine – so solid, unexpected and unashamedly Scottish. As a writer of romance I was hooked…

When did nice become politically incorrect? That is a rhetorical question obviously, I am an American after all. Recently a movie was panned for being too uplifting and not realistic (aka ugly) enough. I also know that books are being passed over for being too “nice”. I believe this world could use some more niceness in it. When I got the opportunity to read Girl in the Castle by Lizzie Lamb I was thrilled to be thrown in a world where life doesn’t always go as planned, and certainly, there is tragedy (it is life after all), but I didn’t have to survive anything uglier than jealousy and heartbreak. These I would expect in a…

Rosie’s Review Team #RBRT #Romance That Summer At The Seahorse Hotel by @adrienneauthor

Thrilled to be featured on Rosie Amber’s blog as reviewer Georgia Rose gives That Summer at the Seahorse Hotel a cracking review!

Georgia has been reading That Summer At The Seahorse Hotel by Adrienne Vaughan

The romance in this novel is not only in the plotline or between the characters but for me it was in the fabulous setting. A crumbling estate on the dramatic coast of Ireland, what’s not to love.

Mia is a dresser on film sets (I thoroughly enjoyed the attention given to the detail of her work) and is the favourite of an aging film star, Archie Fitz, who has been great friends with Mia’s mother, Fenella, another film star, for many years. Sadly, Archie is dying and as friends and family gather around him at Galty House, once known as The Seahorse Hotel, the dynamics in the relationships come to light along with the truth as secrets from the past are at long last revealed.

That Summer at the Seahorse Hotel by Adrienne Vaughan #FridayReads

Insightful and spot on review for That Summer at the Seahorse – thank you, super book blogger Lizanne Lloyd

Lost in a good book

Seahorse

An old house in an estate on the beautiful east coast of Ireland is a perfect setting for romance and mystery.  Mia Flannagan is summoned to Galty House by the sad news of the imminent death of Archie Fitzgerald, a celebrated Hollywood actor who took the place of a father for most of her troubled childhood.  During a rather distant relationship with her mother, stunning actress Fenella Flannagan, Mia was nurtured by Archie’s family and friends, but even they would never reveal the identity of her father.

Leaving the set of a disastrous film where she is in charge of the wardrobe, she is relieved to find Archie is in good form despite being weak and tiring easily.  He maintains a good relationship with his new neighbour, American hotel manager, Ross Power’ but Mia is more interested in a friendship with Pearl, the lonely, neglected niece.  Just as Mia was…

Five Photos … with Jessie Cahalin

Love this blog from the wonderful Jessie, thank you for sharing Lizzie. Having just spent a rainy Sunday on a Norfolk beach with our two spaniels and my fabulous husband, I totally get where Jessie is coming from. We had a lovely time, I found a splodge of Norfolk mud on my notebook this morning, I didn’t wipe it off, just wrote where it came from and the date! Precious memories. X

Sharing her five photos with us today is Jessie Cahalin. Jessie is best known to many of us in the book world as the creator of the fabulous and quirky book blog, Books in my Handbag, which is well worth a visit! However, she’s also an author in her own right, having published her debut novel,  You Can’t Go it Alone, last year. Here are Jessie’s photographs: 

‘Every day’s a bonus. Promise me, you won’t do anything you don’t want to do,’ said my father, in the last weeks of his life. My father’s advice niggled me for a decade. Knee deep in action plans, I chose to leave the rat race. Briefcase abandoned in the garage, I had the freedom to write and appreciate the simple things in life.
In work, I was always running late like the White Rabbit, in Alice in Wonderland. Now, I acknowledge the start…

The Decline of the English Murder #RBRT #BookReview, #humor #mystery

Fabulous blog about two murder, mayhem and two stories Barb Taub absolutely loved … delighted to say, one is That Summer at the Seahorse Hotel!

Barb Taub

George Orwell was annoyed. The author of Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty Four said the war was probably to blame, but it seemed like you just couldn’t get a good murder anymore. His 1946 essay lists the ingredients essential to a quality crime—social class, sex, and (preferably) poisoning:

—Cover of Decline of the English Murder by George Orwell, first published February 16, 1946

“The murderer should be a little man of the professional class — a dentist or a solicitor, say — living an intensely respectable life somewhere in the suburbs, and preferably in a semi-detached house, which will allow the neighbours to hear suspicious sounds through the wall. He should be either chairman of the local Conservative Party branch, or a leading Nonconformist and strong Temperance advocate. He should go astray through cherishing a guilty passion for his secretary or the wife of a rival professional man, and should…

With a cast of wonderfully realised characters, this story transported me to Ireland and Galty House, set in the beautifully described coastal location of Rosshaven. Archie Fitzgerald, legendary actor, is dying, but determined to depart on his own terms. He wants Mia, the daughter of his close friend and fellow actor, Fenella Flanagan, to come home to Galty House for what will be their last summer together.

I love the almost ethereal quality of the cover image which compliments the theme of the book perfectly. Reminders of a past long gone, reminiscences and repercussions play a big part in the story. Whatever happened all those years ago has been a closely guarded secret, long buried and never spoken of. But now things are changing. Fenella is…
