My first ever Spring Blogger Evening at Books and the CityI have to admit I wasn't really sure what a Spring Blogger Evening was when I received the invitation from Sara-Jade but as part of #teammilly I knew I couldn't miss it for the world as I would be able to meet one of my all time favourite authors 'Milly Johnson'. I have been making efforts to step outside of my comfort zone lately, so feeling a little shy and nervous I managed to pluck up the courage to attend.
|Authors from l-r Andy Jones, Milly Johnson, Iona Grey and Jane Costello|
|Time for a well deserved glass of fizz|
Jane's 'The Love Shack' is a story of a happy couple who fall in love with the house of their dreams but can only afford it if they move in with his mum. Trials and tribulations ensue and lots of humour, including a mention of a hairy bum which had the audience laughing out loud. I am looking forward to reading Jane's whole back catalogue as well as the new release.
The introduction of three new authors with their debut novels was lovely and so inspiring;
Iona Grey - Letters to the lost, is a historical novel about a love affair that took place during the second world war and how sixty years later a young girl tries to help reunite the lovers before it's too late. This novel promises to be an emotional tearjerker;
Andy Jones - The Two of us, is a story with lots of twists about a couple who have fallen in love and now start to get to know each other but will they like what they discover? and can they stay together? A heartbreaking novel of life and love and how we should appreciate both.
And Heidi Swain - The Cherry Tree Cafe, introduces Lizzie who's life is falling apart so she moves back home to find her sewing skills will be an invaluable asset in preparation for the grand opening of her friend's cafe. With cake, crafts and two love interests on the cards this book is not to be missed.
