What Choice Does Fate Bring?

Thank you to Tandem Literary and St. Martin’sPress for my copy of Tempting Fate by Jane Green.   I am excited to share her new release with you.   Jane asks the question how forgiving would you be in certain circumstances?


Gabby has the perfect family she absolutely loves her husband Elliot and her two daughters Olivia and Alana.  One night while her family is out Gabby decides to go out with her married friends.  They think what harm could happen when going to a bar and flirting with some guys there.  They would never take it any further or would they?  Or more specifically would Gabby?  She meets Matt that night and they start a friendship.  Gabby tells herself that it won’t go any further than friendship.  Will she change her mind?  What consequences occur from that one choice?  Will they be able to forgive?

My Thoughts:

Tempting Fate is a very entertaining and emotionally charged read!  This novel is full of conflict and asks the question can you forgive? Others? Yourself?  I really felt for all the characters as they dealt with the main conflict within the novel.  I could argue both sides of the issue for each character.  For me I think it would come down to who has the right to judge the one who hurts you?

The novel is beautifully written and very descriptive.   The novel is emotionally driven and powerfully written.  I had the audio version of this book and it was a little adjustment for me to the narrator which is Jane Green.

Overall one that you will not be able to put down.

Big News from Notting Hill Press



Take one twenty-six-year-old American, add to a two thousand year old city, add a big dose of culture clash and stir

To think Hannah ever believed that Americans differed from Brits mainly in pronunciation, sophistication and dentistry. That's been the understatement of a lifetime. She lands upon England's gentle shores with no job, no friends and no idea how she's supposed to build the life she's dreaming of. Armed with little more than her enthusiasm, she charges headlong into London, baffling the locals in her pursuit of a new life, new love and sense of herself.

TO Catch a Creeper a Crouch End Confidential Mystery Release day

Ellie Campbell is back to share their latest release which is avialable today.

Cathy is riding high in her brand-new job at a (surprisingly bitchy) top London advertising agency working with best friend Rosa. But when Rosa’s pregnancy goes amiss and enemies sabotage her new career, she finds herself leading a chaotic double life of lies and deception, hiding a shameful secret from all, especially husband Declan who appears in the throes of a nervous breakdown.  Meanwhile she’s agreed to unmask the notorious Crouch End Creeper, a burglar terrorizing their neighbourhood. Little does she know that her meddling, assisted by fellow mothers (the Wednesday Once Weeklies) and the Neighbourhood Watch, will lead their dangerous opponent to murder.  And that it's not only the tall elegant transvestite who is placing herself at risk...
