Release Day Round-Up #18

Here are my picks this week to kick off February's releases:

Fix You by Carrie Elks
Published: 4th February 2016
Publisher: Corvus
Pages: 355
Available on Kindle and in Paperback

On New Year's Eve, 1999, Hanna and Richard meet. She is a born and bred Londoner with plans for a career in journalism. He is the son of a wealthy New Yorker and destined for Wall Street. As Hanna and Richard go back to their own worlds they keep in touch, and when Hanna has her heart broken it's Richard she turns to. They reunite and fall deeply, madly in love.

But they can't possibly imagine the ways their love will be tested. Fifteen years after they first meet, neither can bear to hear the other's name spoken. Then one day Hanna walks into Richard's office and reveals a shocking secret. Richard must decide if he can forgive her. And both need to choose whether to take a second chance on happiness, or if their love is beyond repair?

I was lucky enough to be sent a review copy of this (thank you Corvus)  and all I can say is go and read it, its such a heart-breaking tale of missed opportunities and right place wrong time or wrong place right time. You'll read this and long for these two to be together because they are just perfect together. Check back later for my full review of this wonderful book.


Reader, I Dumped Him.. by Lorelei Mathias
Published: 4th February 2016
Publisher: Maze
Pages: 375
Available on Kindle

This story is a celebration of the people that bring you back to life when your world closes in: your mates.
Relationships come and go, but the Break-up Club membership never truly expires.
Holly Braithwaite and loveable loser Lawrence have been together for five years. But the obvious cracks in their relationship can no longer be ignored and Holly soon finds herself saying ‘it’s not you, it’s me.’
In the shock aftermath of their break up, Holly finds unlikely companions in Olivia, Harry and Bella. Together, they form the Break-up Club, as they support each other through their mutual melancholy and find ways to love, laugh and function as human beings again.
Break-up Club meets every Sunday. Each week, as the comedy and drama unfolds, they discover a new BUC ‘rule’. And, one by one, the rules become vital markers on their journey to recovery . . .
To our members, we’re the first emergency service

I think this sounds like it could be a really funny read and perfect for those of us who tend to avoid Valentine's Day and all the loved-up couples that go with it.


The Ex by Alafair Burke
Published: 2nd February 2016
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Pages: 309
Available in Hardback and on Kindle

Widower Jack Harris has resisted the dating scene since the shooting of his wife by a fifteen-year-old boy three years ago. An early morning run along the Hudson River changes that when he spots a woman who eerily but thrillingly echoes his past. Eager to help Jack find love again, his best friend posts a "Missed Moment" item online and days later, a woman responds...
Olivia Randall is one of New York City's best criminal defence lawyers. When she gets the phone call informing her that her former fiancé, Jack Harris, has been arrested for a triple homicide there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him - and why?
For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, and the hurt she caused him, but as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts. The man she knew could not have done this. But what if she never really knew him?

I'm really intrigued by this as its such a long time since I read any courtroom dramas and after reading the blurb I'm already thinking how and why?

So there are my picks for this week, do you want to read any of these? Are there any other reads you've noticed being released this week? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
