Blog Tour: Giveaway – Shadows in Heaven by Nadine Dorries

Today for #BookReviewMondays I’m on the blog tour for Shadows in Heaven by Nadine Dorries. I have read a few books by Nadine Dorries from the Lovely Lane series so was eager to read her new book.

You have the chance to win a copy for yourself at the bottom of this page.

Shadows in Heaven by Nadine Dorries

Book Description

In post-war Tarabeg, two women are waiting for ambitious Michael Malone to return home. Rosie is the local schoolteacher and most people think she is promised to him. Just a few have guessed that he has secretly begun to woo Sarah, whose brutal fisherman father would kill her if he knew.

Both Rosie and Sarah love Michael, both hope to become his wife and their lives will interweave in a tale of tangled secrets, old promises and new feuds. Michael Malone’s choice will have fateful consequences for everyone – especially, in due course, for his young daughter.

This is the first in a new sequence of novels with a brilliant new cast of characters and a story that will lead to Liverpool in Mary Kate and back to Ireland in The Seven Acres.

Baby Diaries #5 – Injections

Last week we had the dreaded 8 week injections although ours were at nearly 10 weeks due to the baby boom in our area. The appointments were all fully booked around the time we needed them. Never mind we have had them.

Ours were at 4pm. I don’t like them at this time of the day because if they have a reaction it’s over night time and not the day. I had baby girls injections in the morning and this was much better. Although they never affected her at all.

Real Life Fun and Play with Casdon Toys

Everyday I see my daughter developing her speech and play skills. In fact she’s really into copying everything we say or do at the moment. Yes we really have to watch what we say! Baby girl knows I work in a supermarket in my “day job” and is so obsessed with shopping.

We were extremely lucky to be sent a selection of toys from Casdon which included a shopping trolley, a large range of play food and the cutest little Henry mop & bucket set. All of these toys are great for little imaginations and playtime.

As you can see from the photo she couldn’t wait to play!

Meetchu – A Dating App with a Difference

OK, well you know I’m happily married, but being asked to check out the new dating app – Meetchu sounded useful to those of you who are dating. Years ago when I was dating you had the online dating websites, (which I may have used!) but dating apps were unknown. Back then you were always eager to get home and get on the computer to chat. No apps where you can have a natter throughout the day, or like Meetchu where you can meet before you meet.

Meetchu - A Dating App with a Difference

Meetchu brings alive the online dating scene with its brand new innovative way of getting people together. It’s the dating app that lets you meet before you meet.
