September Releases I Am Excited About
September is almost here and it looks like it is going to be another fantastic month for books. It's been difficult to pick only 5 books, but here are the ones I am most excited about:
Blurb: Love may hurt, but not loving hurts even more...
January Wild loves her daughter, her dog and her childhood home by the sea.
Single parenting is tough, but January has no regrets. She has a job she loves, a happy home and the support of her beloved grandfather. The arrival of a new boss, however, threatens to shake up January's safe world.
Ward Metcalfe loves great sales results and a well-run office
Everyone at her office agrees: Ward is a soulless, corporate slave driver. Even Spud, the company mascot, dislikes him.
A secret stands between them.
Yet over time January sees there is more to Ward than meets the eye. Rumours circulate. What exactly is he hiding? and is January prepared to risk everything to find out?
Why so excited: Alice Peterson's latest book, One Step Closer to You, was one of my favourite reads last year so since she announced the publications of her new one, I've been counting the days until pub day. And what a wonderful cover!
Blurb: A vicious hit, a vengeful enemy, a drug addled Colombian club owner and a sex crazed Italian family… the ever powerful Lucky Santangelo has to deal with them all.
Meanwhile Max - her teenage daughter - is becoming the "It" girl in Europe's modeling world. And her Kennedyesque son, Bobby, is being set up for a murder he didn't commit. But Lucky can deal. Always strong and unpredictable, with her husband Lennie by her side, she lives up to the family motto - Never fuck with a Santangelo.
Lucky rules… the Santangelos always come out on top.
The Santangelos is an epic family saga filled with love, lust, revenge and passion.
Why so excited: I have to confess that I haven't read any books by Jackie Collins but have heard great things about them. Plus, I got send a proof copy of this one (wrapped on a very cool animal print paper) and it'll be my next read!
Blurb: The gift of a lifetime?
Anna Browne is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. Her day job as a receptionist in bustling London isn't exactly her dream, yet she has everything she wants. But someone thinks Anna Browne deserves more . . .
When a parcel addressed to Anna Browne arrives, she has no idea who has sent it. Inside she finds a beautiful gift - one that is designed to be seen. And so begins a series of incredible deliveries, each one bringing Anna further out of the shadows and encouraging her to become the woman she was destined to be. As Anna grows in confidence, others begin to notice her - and her life starts to change.
But who is sending the mysterious gifts, and why?
Why so excited: Who doesn't love a Miranda Dickinson book? I might have done a little dance when I got the proof copy some weeks ago. And I can't wait to start it, it looks and sounds amazing.
Blurb: Lou Clark has lots of questions.
Like how it is she's ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places.
Or why the flat she's owned for a year still doesn't feel like home.
Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago.
And will she ever get over the love of her life.
What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change.
Then, one night, it does.
But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for - or just more questions?
Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe.
Open it and she risks everything.
But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she's going to keep it, she has to invite them in...
Why so excited: Because who isn't?
Christmas at Lilac Cottage by Holly Martin - September 25th
Blurb: Welcome to the charming seaside town of White Cliff Bay, where Christmas is magical and love is in the air…
Penny Meadows loves her home – a cosy cottage decorated with pretty twinkling fairy lights and stunning views over the town of White Cliff Bay. She also loves her job as an ice-carver, creating breathtaking sculptures. Yet her personal life seems frozen.
When Henry and daughter Daisy arrive at the cottage to rent the annex, Penny is determined to make them feel welcome. But while Daisy is friendly, Henry seems guarded.
As Penny gets to know Henry, she realises there is more to him than meets the eye. And the connection between them is too strong to ignore…
While the spirit of the season sprinkles its magic over the seaside town and preparations for the ice sculpting competition and Christmas eve ball are in full swing, can Penny melt the ice and allow love in her heart? And will this finally be the perfect Christmas she’s been dreaming of?
Like a creamy hot chocolate with marshmallows, you won’t want to put this deliciously heartwarming novel down.
Spend the perfect Christmas in White Cliff Bay this year. Snowflakes on Silver Cove coming very soon.
Why so excited: Holly Martin is spoiling us this year. We started the year with one of her fantastic and sexy Amelia Thorne's book, then we had the magical Fairytale Beginnings this summer and now Christmas is coming early with Christmas at Lilac Cottage! Oh and there's another Christmas book coming out in October!
