Release Day Round-Up #19

Welcome to a bumper release week, there is something for everyone this week:

A Home In Sunset Bay

A Home in Sunset Bay by Rebecca Pugh
Published: 9th February 2016
Publisher: Carina UK
Available on Kindle

There’s no place like home…
Enough is enough! The always perfect Laurie Chapman had jumped in her car and raced as fast as she could from London heading to Sunset Bay and (she hopes!) the open arms of her estranged sister…
Mia Chapman loves running Dolly’s Diner in the picture-perfect coastal Cornish town of Sunset Bay. Now that her and Grandma Dolly’s dream is finally a reality Mia has never been prouder! Until Laurie suddenly turns up on her doorstep… How can she forgive the sister who walked away?
Once upon a time Mia and Laurie were best friends. Back together after so long, the time has come for the sisters to figure out what went so wrong all those years ago – and whether they can ever put it right!

I love the sound of this book, I just love uncovering family mysteries. This is Rebecca's second novel, sadly I haven't yet read her first one Return to Bluebell Hill but its on my list. If her writing is anything like her lovely book reviews it will be a delight to read.

Time to Say Goodbye

Time to Say Goodbye by S. D. Robertson

Available in Paperback and on Kindle

Is there ever a right time to let go?


Will Curtis’s six-year-old daughter, Ella, knows her father will never leave her. After all, he promised her so when her mother died. And he’s going to do everything he can to keep his word.

What Will doesn’t know is that the promise he made to his little girl might be harder to keep than he imagined. When he’s faced with an impossible decision, Will finds that the most obvious choice might not be the right one.

But the future is full of unexpected surprises. And father and daughter are about to embark on an unforgettable journey together . . .

I just finished reading this last night and it was stunning. It has some incredibly heart-wrenching moments in it which will make you cry. I found it a very original read as I've not read anything like it before and it really made me think about  life in a new way. This is going to be one of those books that stays with you long after you've finished it as I know it will me. Thank you S. D. Robertson for such a wonderful book. This is a must-read 2016.

Song of the Sea Maid

Song of the Sea Maid by Rebecca Mascull
Published: 11th February 2016
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Pages:  312
Available in Paperback and on Kindle

As a child living on the streets of London, then in an orphanage, Dawnay Price grows up determined not to let her background stand in the way of her ambitions.

In an era where women rarely travel alone, especially for scientific study, Dawnay sets sail aboard The Prospect to the beautiful Iberian Peninsula. Amid rumours of mermaids in the sparkling waters, she makes some unexpected discoveries, including what it means to fall in love.

Having fought hard against convention, Dawnay is determined to put her career above all else. Yet as war approaches she finds herself divided by feelings she cannot control.

I'm about a third of the way through this book and so far I'm enjoying it. Dawney may be a character who has not had the best start in life but she is on a constant mission to improve herself and I love that. The writing is very detailed and delivers a real sense of place which is a joy to read. Looking forward to following Dawnay's journey more.

So that's my three favourites from this week, are you going to read any of them? Check out my release dates page for links to other books released this week.
