Book Blurb

The thought of having a dog hasn’t crossed Theo Martin’s mind. It’s not that he doesn’t like dogs – he does – but the idea has simply never occurred to him.

It has occurred to his mother though, and when she decides to buy him a puppy because she thinks it will “liven him up a bit”, his life is turned completely upside down and not for the better as far as he’s concerned. But when he discovers that having a cute dog on the end of a lead attracts a great deal of female attention, he soon changes his mind. All kinds of women stop to pet the pup and while they coo over Poppy, they talk to him. A lot. And for Theo, it looks like his love life is taking a very welcome turn for the better.

But what about Josie Wilde, his dog sitter?

Forced to employ someone to walk his dog when he’s in work, he finds himself increasingly attracted to her, but unfortunately Josie’s interest in him appears to be purely professional. As the summer unfolds and he falls head over heels in love with the sweet and vulnerable pup, he finds himself falling for Josie.

For Theo, it’s not so much ‘love me, love my dog’, but more like ‘love my dog, love me, too’. Please…?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Liz Davies’ latest novel: The Summer of Falling in Love.

In times of uncertainty you want to open a book knowing it’s going to put a smile on your face and wrap you up in a cosy hug.  This is just what I’ve learned to love from Liz Davies novels; the guarantee of feelgood satisfaction.

Theo Martin’s life has become a little samey, he’s been teaching at the same school now for a good few years, his social life is pretty much non existent and he’s got a routine of work and then home with a ready meal and a boxset.  So when his parents surprise him one night with a new house mate he’s a little taken aback by this intrusion into his normality.  You see Theo thought his life was ‘alright’ he was doing ok at work and was happy in his personal life and didn’t feel like he needed more.  However, mum’s know best and gifting Theo a puppy was just the push he needed to make changes in his life.

Theo refuses to believe his mum knows best and is adamant about finding a more suitable home for the little dog.  However, the little puppy, Poppy, has other ideas and day by day she proves to Theo that the love of a dog, or any pet, can bring so many benefits to the owner.

This romcom by Liz Davies was so adorable and I loved every page of it.  I feel like it opened your heart and eyes to new possibilities and left you feeling hopeful for better days to come.  I was charmed by the honesty of friendship between a man and his best-friend (aka dog) and I appreciated that animals soften people’s characters and personalities.  Animals have proven they are beneficial in helping people through times of illness, stress and learning difficulties and Poppy the adorable puppy in this novel had many other skills under her collar.  Adorable feelgood fiction aplenty!

the summer of falling in love Author photo 2019Author Bio – Liz Davies writes feel-good, light-hearted stories with a hefty dose of romance, a smattering of humour, and a great deal of love.

She’s married to her best friend, has one grown-up daughter, and when she isn’t scribbling away in the notepad she carries with her everywhere (just in case inspiration strikes), you’ll find her searching for that perfect pair of shoes. She loves to cook but isn’t very good at it, and loves to eat – she’s much better at that! Liz also enjoys walking (preferably on the flat), cycling (also on the flat), and lots of sitting around in the garden on warm, sunny days.

She currently lives with her family in Wales, but would ideally love to buy a camper van and travel the world in it.

The Cottage on Wildflower Lane

The Cottage on Wildflower Lane written and self-published by Liz Davies is available NOW in ebook, kindleunlimited and paperback format.

Book Blurb

Esther’s life isn’t perfect (whose is?) – but she’s happy enough living in her little flat with her boyfriend, Josh.

But that’s about to change.

Bored out of her mind in work, she wishes that something, anything, would happen to liven her life up.

Unfortunately, her wish comes true when Josh calls her from the airport to tell her he’s going to work in a bar in Spain, and she’s not invited, Esther is devastated, and her unhappiness is compounded when she discovers she can actually view the bar via a webcam link and watch him chatting up other girls.

But when she inadvertently clicks on a link to another webcam which shows a pretty cottage and the rather hunky man who lives in it, her interest is piqued and she wishes she could get to know him.

Wishes don’t really come true, though – do they…?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Liz Davies latest novel: The Cottage on Wildflower Lane.

What a blooming lovely story!  I fell in love with this romantic comedy from the start, it was sweet and effervescent just like the wild blooms left to shine in a meadow.  The Cottage on Wildflower Lane is the second book I’ve read by Liz Davies and the author has charmed and delighted me on both occasions.

Esther is heartbroken when she learns that her boyfriend of two years has dumped her and is off to work in a bar in Malaga.  She is shocked by this sudden change of events so googles the bar and stumbles across a live webcam of said bar that her ex is now working in.  Esther starts an unhealthy obsession of watching the webcam waiting for her ex to appear.  Whilst waiting for Josh to appear on screen so she can silently torture herself Esther comes across another live webcam of a charming cottage in the countryside adorned with pretty flowers and when she spots the occupant of the cottage she’s transfixed.

Esther learns to forget about her ex by mesmerising over the mystery guy and the delightful cottage.  She dreams of what it must be like to live in such idyllic settings.  When she starts her new job there’s something familiar about one of the business owners and a nearby cottage looks familiar.  Where has she seen them before?

The Cottage on Wildflower Lane is such a gorgeous romcom that will set your heart a flutter and will leave you dreaming of summer days surrounded by the natural beauty of flora and fauna.

Book Blurb

Candice Summerville is invisible. No one seems to notice her – not really. Heck, she often doesn’t notice herself, except for her monthly scrutiny in the mirror to check on her body’s steady slide towards middle age.
But when her ancient, practical estate car is consigned to the scrap heap, Candice falls in love with a cute, purple convertible, and from that moment on her life begins to take on a whole new meaning. Strangers wave at her and people stop to talk, and suddenly she isn’t invisible any longer.
Life seems to be looking up, especially when she meets silver fox and handy-man, Paul. There’s just one fly in the ointment, one thing she that has her second-guessing herself.
Is it the car that Paul sees – or is it her?

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Liz Davies debut novel: The Summer of Going Topless.

Ohh I loved the play on words with the title of this novel.  You read the title and think ‘Oh la, la, what’s all this fruitiness with this story’?!  Well you’ll have to read the book and find out.  However, I can confirm there’s no fruity storyline at all but a fabulously funny, very relatable story about life starting again when you thought you were doomed for the boredom bin.

Candice Summerville was feeling a little ‘blah’; her two boys had now grown up and flown the nest living life to the full and no longer needing their mother and her husband Malcolm fled the nest also and landed in another many years ago.  But why was Candice still wearing the same old clothes and sporting the same haircut that Malcolm preferred?  When Candice’s faithful car, which was a nice sensible family car purchased by her ex, breaks down and is destined for the scrap yard Candice’s eye is taken by a purple convertible sports car.  A car that is not sensible at all but once Candice sits in the driver’s seat with the soft-top down, the wind in her hair she starts to feel enlightened and frivolous, like a weight has been lifted from her shoulders.

This purple car seems to be the catalyst of changes in Candice’s life as she starts to reassess what she wants in life.  Candice believes that all the positive changes that have come her way have been down to the car but deep down it was Candice that made the decisions and the car was the first step to bringing back a renewed confidence in Candice.

The Summer of Going Topless is such a fun, entertaining read that charmed me, I fell in love with the little purple car but most of all I fell in love with Candice.
