Sitting Down with Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke: Authors of The Good Widow @LIZANDLISA ‏@LITTLEABOOKS

Earlier this month, I read The Good Widow (you can check out my full review here) and I loved it. The Good Widow was the perfect novel for a summer at the beach or to binge read in your PJs (with a glass of wine, of course!). From the first pages, I was completely hooked.

Obviously, I knew I had to have this writing duo on Clues and Reviews!  So, without further ado, let’s see what Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke had to say when I asked them about their novel, their upcoming work and who would die first in a Zombie Apocalypse. Just some run of the mill questions.

BOMG Book Review: The Identicals (Elin Hilderbrand) @elinhilderbrand @littlebrown

Screen Shot 2017-06-12 at 8.27.52 PM.png

If I had to describe The Identicals, the newest release by the Queen of Summer Novels, Elin Hilderbrand, I would have to say drama.

Drama, drama, drama.

Estranged sisters, wild teenaged daughters, love affair, family betrayal, loss and good ol’ fashion gossip surrounds the core of this plot making it a delicious summer, beach read!

When Billy dies in Martha’s Vineyard, his daughter Harper is forced to call up Tabitha and Eleanor. Her identical twin sister and mother, whom she hasn’t spoken to in years. Making the trip from Nantucket, Tabitha arrives with her rebellious daughter, Ainsley in tow.   A bit of mistaken identity and mishaps ensue as the girl’s struggle with old demons and to help tie up their father’s estate. A story of lost loves, once buried battles and the importance of family, Tabitha and Harper come to realize their bond is more important than the resentments that tore them apart.

Blog Tour: Ella’s Ice Cream Summer (Sue Watson) @bookouture @suewatsonwriter

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Ella’s Ice Cream Summer by Sue Watson! Today, I have a review for you!

I have been indulging in quite a few summer beach reads and this one has been one of my favourites!

Ella’s Ice Cream Summer by Sue Watson was heart-warming and hilarious. I read this one easily in one sitting as I cozied up on my couch and longed for a warmer climate!

As the novel opens, we meet the single mother, Ella, who life seems to be hitting quite hard. Jobless, loveless, basically homeless and with her children away, she is lonely!   When she receives notice that her recently deceased aunt has left her part of the family business, an ice cream parlour and café in which Ella has fond memories of, Ella packs up her belongings and heads to the seaside town of Appledore to honour her aunt’s memory and open an ice cream stand.   With some bumps along the way and some family secrets uncovered, Ella finds more than what she bargained for during her ice cream summer!

BOMG Book Review: Public Relations (Kate Heaney and Arianna Rebolini) @GrandCentralPub

Coming at you today with another Book Outside My Genre (BOMG) palette cleanser book review! When her boss leaves town, PR agent, Rose Reed, is finally given her chance to take the reins

When her boss leaves town, PR agent, Rose Reed, is finally given her chance to take the reins with a client; too bad that client is a hot, rugged, young, international singer-songwriter, Archie Fox.   Ignoring her unexpected, inconvenient and unprofessional budding feeling for Archie, Rose arranges a staged romance with an up and coming indie singer.   Things start to get complicated, and, in the end, Rose will have to decide whether to let her feelings go or to risk her reputation…it’s all just another day at the office…
Public Relations (Kate Heaney and Arianna Rebolini) has been one of my top guilty pleasure reads of this year. Fun and fluffy, this was an easy read that I breezed through. It really reminded me a bit of The Devil Wears Prada with a slightly nicer boss and in PR, instead of fashion. My only regret? I didn’t read it while at the beach.
