Last year I was on the blog tour for The Children of Lovely Lane by Nadine Dorries, so I’m excited to be back for the tour for The Mothers of Lovely Lane. On this tour I’m reviewing the book plus hosting a giveaway for a copy, which you will find the details for much further down.
Firstly here is a bit about The Mothers of Lovely Lane.
Noleen Delaney is one of an army of night cleaners at St Angelus hospital in Liverpool. Since her husband was injured in the war, she has supported her five children. With help from her eldest, Bryan – a porter’s lad – the family just about gets by.
When Finn, her youngest, passes the eleven plus exam, Noleen feels faint. Allowing Finn to attend the grammar will stretch her purse too far.
When Bryan steps in to help, the results rock the St Angelus community. As the nurses of Lovely Lane near their final exams, Noleen will find herself tested, and her heart broken. Just how far can a mother’s love stretch?
Today I’m on the blog tour for The Salvation Project by Stuart Ross. Stuart has kindly written a guest post for me to share with all of you.
First let me share with you a little bit about the book..
Humanity’s hope of salvation lies within a single laptop…
A mutation in human DNA means no one lives beyond nineteen. Scientists working to reverse this pandemic died before their Salvation Project was complete, leaving behind the results of their research in a sealed vault – the Soterion.
122 years have passed. The civilisation of the ‘Long Dead’ is almost forgotten, the Soterion has been burned to ashes, and communities of Constants are tormented by brutal tribes of Zeds. Cyrus, Miouda and Sammy flee their burning city with a laptop rescued from the inferno. They believe it contains the key to the Salvation Project. But its batteries are dead, there is no electricity to power it, and murderous Zeds will stop at nothing to get it back…
I’m really glad we got the chance to read and share our thoughts on this wonderful little book called #Babylove My Toddler Life by Corine Dehghanpisheh. My Toddler Life is about a little boy finding his mum’s smartphone and using it to take lots of selfies, mum then finds the phone and they look back through the photos. She realises how quickly time flies and how short precious moments can be. Kids grow up so fast, so put your phone down and enjoy special time with them.
The Butlins Girls is not my normal type of reading, well I have slightly moved away from the crime/thriller genre at the moment as my last book was Come Sundown by Nora Roberts! I suppose I like the name The Butlins Girls because of Butlins, the family holiday park, so wanted to see if the book is anything like the park. A little strange of me I know!
The author Elaine Everest’s other book is The Woolworths Girls, now I was a Woolworths Girl back in the early 2000’s before they went into administration. I think that book will be one of my next reads.
This week we have been reading all about The Merciless Lion and the Cunning Hare by Corrine Riviere. A great bedtime story for slightly older kids than baby girl. I think at this age (16 months) she just loves the sound of my voice, and won’t understand what this story is about.
Nonetheless we love to have a look through the book together.
I’m excited to be on another blog tour this week, yesterday was The Silence by Katharine Johnson, today is Come Sundown by one of my old favourite authors Nora Roberts.
Nora Roberts is a huge bestselling author of more than 200 novels and her latest one Come Sundown is another cracker! Published last week in hardback and available from Amazon in various formats.
So now onto the best parts! The blurb… and of course my review.
What is Come Sundown all about?
What did I think of it?
