India Buchanan plans to set up an English-Style bed and breakfast establishment in her great-aunt’s home, MacFarlane’s Landing, Wisconsin. But she’s reckoned without opposition from Logan MacFarlane whose family once owned her aunt’s house and now want it back. MacFarlane is in no mood to be denied. His grandfather’s living on borrowed time and Logan has vowed to ensure the old man sees out his days in their former home. India’s great-aunt has other ideas and has threatened to burn the house to the ground before a MacFarlane sets foot in it. There’s…

‘That Summer at the Seahorse Hotel’ by Adrienne Vaughan #BookReview #FridayReads

Keeping summer going, latest fabulous review for That Summer at the Seahorse Hotel! Thanks Alison …

Alison Williams Writing

Mia Flanagan has never been told who her father is and aged ten, stopped asking. Haunted by this, she remains a dutiful daughter who would never do anything to bring scandal or shame on her beautiful and famously single mother. So when Archie Fitzgerald, one of Hollywood’s favourite actors, decides to leave Mia his Irish estate she asks herself – is he her father after all? That Summer at the Seahorse Hotel is a tale of passion, jealousy and betrayal – and the ghost of a secret love that binds this colourful cast yet still threatens, after all these years, to tear each of them apart.

There are some authors that you just know won’t disappoint, and Adrienne Vaughan is definitely one of them. This is another lovely novel, full of warmth, drama, romance, but, as always, with that little something extra, something a little dark, to lift it…

Take Me, I’m Yours Blog Tour – here’s how it went.

Fab post, wonderful book from one of my fave authors and best mates! X

Lizzie Lamb - author

September 15th – The first bloggers to comment on my tour are: Being Anne and A Girl and Her Books and Against the Flow Press,

Takeme_7Anne Williams saidI had the pleasure and honour of being an early reader, and sharing my review on publication day – you’ll find that review again here, and I suspect you might just pick up how very much I enjoyed it.

Deborah wroteI was hooked from the moment India picked up the monkey wrench, determined to defend herself, if necessary, from the bullying Logan – and I did not want to put it down. I thought all of the characters were totally believable, and the plot twists and turns kept me reading, long into the night. 

September 16th Jerra’s Jamboree posted an extract from Take Me, I’m Yours.

Against her better judgement, India has turned up at the picnic…

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

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

Lizzie Lamb - author

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…
