The Mothers of Lovely Lane Blog Tour – Review and Giveaway

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.

The Mothers of Lovely Lane

Book Description

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?

The Salvation Project Blog Tour – Guest Post

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..

The Salvation Project

Book Description

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…

Book Review & Giveaway: Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings

You know sometimes you just need to read a light hearted book to bring a smile to your face. Well Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden is just that. Witty, fun and down right full of entertainment!

I was lucky enough to be sent a beautiful hardback copy to read and review from Head of Zeus, plus you have the chance to win your very own copy as well. First though, here is a little bit about Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings.

Laura Lake and the Hipster Weddings by Wendy Holden

Book Description

She’ll need a triple-barrelled name for the castle one. She’ll need a gallon of glitter for the woodland one. She’ll need a lobster-shaped hat for the Shoreditch one.

Laura Lake longs to be a journalist. Instead she’s an unpaid intern at a glossy magazine – sleeping in the fashion cupboard and living on canapés. But she’s just got her first big break: infiltrate three society weddings and write a juicy exposé.

Security will be tighter than a bodycon dress, but how hard can it be? Cue disappearing brides, demanding socialites – and a jealous office enemy who will do anything to bring her down…
