  1. Hello, Lovely Blog Reader,

    Just a note to tell you about one summer bargain and one freebie...

    If you were like me as a kid, you loved Summer Specials -- those fun extra-thick editions of our favourite comics. My favourites were Bunty and Beano. Perfect for taking on holiday. Usually along with a Chalet School book or two. I probably gave my age away there! 

    When I got a little older, and books took up more room than clothes in my suitcase, I was glad when e-readers were introduced. Not that I’ve been on holiday for ages. Sob. But when I do go my favourite thing is reading while languishing on a sun lounger...

    I live in Scotland, and the sun is sporadic. We had two full days of it last week, but it’s now back to being as temperamental as a stroppy teenager. So, however busy I am, I usually have my Kindle at the ready to dash into the garden - although it has often clouded over by the time I get there -- especially if I go via the kitchen for a cup of tea.

    Anyway, I have a ‘Summer Special’ for you. If you enjoyed The Last of the Family Diamonds (Izzie Firecracker Book 1), you’d probably love the crazy follow-up -- set in sunny Las Vegas: Movies Mothers and Murder (Izzie Firecracker 2). It's just 99p (or equivalent) for July and maybe a few days into August…

    Here’s the quick blurb...

    When an investment fails, Izzie Firecracker has days to vacate her luxury London home and office. When things can’t get worse, they do. Izzie’s Mum dies, leaving mountains of clutter, emotional and actual. At Izzie’s lowest ebb a beddable businessman, Bobby, summons her to Vegas to run a self-help seminar in his decadent new hotel...

    Soon, Izzie and Bobby are at the mercy of a mad Mommy’s-boy mobster who’s out for blood -- and therapy. Can Izzie and Bobby outwit the crazy gangster and escape with their lives, never mind their budding relationship?

    It's a tongue-in-cheek suspenseful, romantic romp with touches of dark humour...

    Here’s the link 

    Pull up a sun lounger and enjoy!

    And if you prefer just to close your eyes and relax in the sun, Izzie Firecracker's Meditation Method is currently FREE on most bookseller sites.

     

    PS. As I was writing this, Gnasher, of Beano fame, stole my sun lounger and my copy of Movies, Mother and Murder. And I daren't ask for them back -- check out those teeth...
