"A warm, funny, uplifting new writer to celebrate!’ KATIE FFORDE.

'A lovely story of self discovery. It was heart felt and emotional and a heartwarming tale of new beginnings' JO THOMAS.

Flora Phillips has an excuse for every disaster in her life; she was abandoned as a new-born on a doorstep one cold autumn night, wrapped in nothing but a towel. Her philosophy is simple: if your mother doesn't want you – who will?

Now a thirty-year-old, without a boyfriend, a career or home she figures she might as well tackle the biggest question of them all – who is she? So, whilst everyone else enjoys their Christmas Eve traditions, Flora escapes the masses and drives to the village of Pooley to seek a specific doorstep. Her doorstep.

But in Pooley she finds more than her life story. She finds friends, laughter, and perhaps even a love to last a lifetime. Because once you know where you come from, it's so much easier to know where you're going.

A story of redemption and love, romance and Christmas dreams-come-true, the perfect novel to snuggle up with."

Highly reviewed too - 

Don't wait until Christmas to read this book! It's also great escapist reading for summer holidays.
The quest to find Flora's mother kept me turning the pages. It's hard to imagine how it must feel to not know your blood parents but this book takes you there. And I have to admit to being a little bit in love with Joel ...

You know one of those moments when you meet up again with someone you’ve not seen for over a decade, and you just pick up where you left off? I have a couple of old boyfriends in that category who are dear to me. And also several female friends who have been pivotal in my life.

One of them is Shawn Goodman and she met me last week after a gap of 15 years or so. The last time I met up with her, I believe I was in LA with the kids on one of our adventure hols I used to take them on, and she met us for a meal in Santa Monica. I think. Well all these years later, Shawn was over in the UK with her other half who is in the medical profession, and asked me to meet up for afternoon tea. So we did!

It was amazing to catch up with her, and it reminded me of those early days when Freedom Eating was an alien concept. Basically it’s all about listening to your body instead of over ruling it with your brain.

Basics of Freedom Eating

If you can listen to your body it will tell you when to eat, WHEN being really important, plus how to eat and what food to choose. Usually it's based on what we now know is messages from your gut, associated with your microbiome. In the old days, like with The Seven Secrets, they said listen to your body, they just didn't know why. When I wrote my version, the original Til the Fat Lady Slims book in 2002 and it's updated version 2.0 in 2014, I refined the guidelines into six principles, and explained all about the 'When' diet - and how it could work alongside any traditional diet plan - any. Also how to do it, but not really why it's so successful where so many other pure diet plans fail. The facebook group kicked off, and the online support really made a difference to everyone in it, as we encouraged each other to remember things like 'the wayside is part of the journey, just don't set up camp there.' And much discussion about NSV's - non-scales victories - which help us avoid relying on the dreaded scales too much.

Then came a revolution in understanding the signalling from the body and the connection between that and the food we eat. So since the new technology allowed scientists to examine the gut in more detail, and its links to the whole of the rest of the body and the mind, I made the connection and put it in the book 3.0. - the companion to my original TTFLS book about Freedom Eating. It became a fascination to me also, to observe other people and their own diet habits - or non diet habits, as the case maybe. And from those observations, I created several 'guises' or types of Freedom Eater - gave them all a name, and described them in book 3.0. These six guises help you understand yourself and your own particular type of food prison, and how to get out of it using TTFLs principles. 

All of this was then incorporated into a newly updated version published by Choc Lit my publisher, in January 2017 - the end product is this one, and is available to order in good bookshops and of course online, eg on amazon here.

 It made me very proud this week to bring Shawn right up to speed and has reminded me how much this system helps people who could never manage their behaviour around food before. So hats off to you, Shawn Goodman and Vicky Hansen the original Freedom Eating founders, and thank you for giving me my life back!

More about the system and testimonials on my webpage here.

Who knows, maybe come join our Facebook group (here) having read the books and found out more from the big TTFLS QVC blog i did when it sold there, perhaps you too will have an experience a bit like Penni Rowe -

Talking of books - had a superb audiobook to keep me company on my long journeys last week ...

Published in Debbie's News

Really enjoyed this audiobook - there are so many accents that the narrator was key. Mark Meadows did a very good job, albeit a little staid at the start. I will look out for him again in the future.

So the story is neither time slip nor time travel but it has elements of both. Just my cuppa tea. I'm beginning to realise that I really like anything to do with time quirks and alternative realities. Sliding Doors, Groundhog Day, About Time, and so many others. But what makes this more than just a tale about very long lived people, is the pathos infused throughout. Matt's previous bestseller 'Reasons to Stay Alive' with 825 five star reviews, laid the foundations for the philosophical thinking expounded in this novel, and it really makes you think. It will stay with me long after I finished the book.

'I am old. That is the first thing to tell you. The thing you are least likely to believe. If you saw me you would probably think I was about 40, but you would be very wrong.'

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to jazz age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot and now craves an ordinary life.

Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - working as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them firsthand. He can try to tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom mustn't do is fall in love.

How to Stop Time is a wild and bittersweet story about losing and finding yourself, about the certainty of change and about the lifetimes it can take to really learn how to live.

Highly reviewed online already and I would not be surprised if this becomes a movie!

I've just a popped a little review on Amazon having read my pal Carolyn's new book which I bought this week. It's a long awaited book two in the Harry Briscombe series. Now I really liked this character and his sidekick in Cry from the Grave so was delighted to see them back. If you like well crafted, well plotted books with compelling characters, get this one.

HOW WELL DO YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR FAMILY? 
Kirsty Cartwright is licking her wounds in France after a breakup with her fiancé and a massive fall-out with her father, Dominic. Then she hears that her father has been seriously injured in an accident. Forced to come home and face her demons, she soon begins to wonder whether there is more to his accident than meets the eye – but the closer she gets to the truth the more she questions who she can trust – including her own family.
DS Harry Briscombe is facing a personal dilemma that threatens his career. Already immersed in a local murder investigation, Dominic Cartwright’s accident raises the unwelcome possibility that the two cases could be linked. It’s a race against time with more lives at stake if the killer can’t be stopped.
The Jagged Line is a book about family loyalties, and how far we’re prepared to compromise our principles for the ones we love.
Is loyalty but a step away from delusion?   

Amazon reviewer says -

"Highly recommend this book. A good read with interesting characters and a plot that holds your attention as it unravels. Well worth reading."

What about this freebie audiobook from brilliant writer Ben Aaronovitch, author of the Peter Grant Rivers of London series.

Firstly, I absolutely love his writing and have read all of the Rivers of London series of novels. With the supernatural theme, PC Peter Grant explores the spooky goings on in and around London, but it is the performance of narrator Kobna Holbrook Smith that really gets me every time. His voice is amazing, his narration is brilliant, his comic timing is superb, they could not be a better narrator for Ben's clever writing. A Rare Book of Cunning Device is an Audible exclusive, a short story that is currently free, a good 29 minutes of entertainment if you've not come across anything like this before, and a taster as to what to expect if you then want to go to buy the series starting with book 1 rivers of London. Get it now.

Book of the Week – Camino Island by John Grisham. Not one of his most taxing offerings, and a book that reads exactly like watching a film. But a pleasant way to spend my hours in the car nonetheless. A heist in the world of collectables world goes wrong, and we get to know an undercover rare books dealer whose front is a successful bookshop on Camino Island. The dilemma faced by a young girl involved in assisting the enquiry, is what keeps the story going. Not one of his finest but worth a read if you have audible credits that have not cost full whack. To be honest I think John Grisham seems to have changed his style, in the last few books I have read. Maybe using ghostwriters or helpers to take his writing in a different direction, otherwise it's as if the prose is purely describing what would be seen if it was made into a film, which let's face it most of his stuff has been! So who can blame him? I will probably keep buying John Grishams but mainly because with my audible credits I only pay about £3.70 per credit, making it cheaper than many Kindle books.

Amazon says –

"All trails became dead ends. Tips that had at first seemed urgent now faded away. The waiting game began. Whoever had the manuscripts would want money, and a lot of it. They would surface eventually, but where and when, and how much would they want?

The most daring and devastating heist in literary history targets a high security vault located deep beneath Princeton University. Valued at $25 million (though some would say priceless), the five manuscripts of F. Scott Fitzgerald's only novels are amongst the most valuable in the world. After an initial flurry of arrests, both they and the ruthless gang of thieves who took them have vanished without trace. Dealing in stolen books is a dark business, and few are initiated to its arts - which puts Bruce Kable right on the FBI's Rare Asset Recovery Unit's watch list.

A struggling writer burdened by debts, Mercer Mann spent summers on Florida's idyllic Camino Island as a kid, in her grandmother's beach cottage. Now she is being made an offer she can't refuse: to return to the peace of the island, to write her novel - and get close to a certain infamous bookseller, and his interesting collection of manuscripts.."

WORK IN PROGRESS

Rowan Coleman has done an amazing thing. In fact a series of quite possible things as it turns out, in her new novel The Summer of Impossible Things. She has created a riveting novel, that entranced me from the outset, and gripped me at the end. I always try to guess the ending and this one kept me guessing right to the end. Whilst I was reading it, on audiobook, listening to some very skilled New York accents amongst other things, I kept finding myself staring into space every so often, and realised that my mind was completely enraptured with the characters and their predicament. If this is not made into a film I will be very, very surprised. Rowan, well done, you have created one of the best books I have read in recent times. And one I will do something very rare with – I will almost certainly read it again on audiobook. I have only done that with Diana Gabledon's Outlander series and Mad About the Boy, The third Bridget Jones story. Anyway, this latest tome from Rowan has already got nearly 100 5* reviews on Amazon. Highly recommended.

"Thirty years ago something terrible happened to Luna's mother. Something she's prepared to reveal only after her death.

In settling her mother's affairs, Luna finds more questions than answers until something impossible and magical happens....

Luna meets her mother as a young woman back in the summer of 1977. If she can truly travel back in time, she can change things. But in order to save her mother's life, will she have to sacrifice her own?"

 The feedback on reviews so far has been outstanding - mostly five stars, and I'm not surprised.

"I loved this book and my only disappointment was when I finished it!
The story flows and the characters make you care about them. A mix of time travel, love, family and New York (Brooklyn) what's not to enjoy.
The pictures painted by the story telling made me feel like I was watch a film, they were so vibrant and believable.
Luna, the main character is a fabulous creation and you want things to work out for her and you truly admire her courage.
Without spoiling the plot, there are a couple of twists that I didn't see coming and they make this story even more clever.
I can only say that this story was magical and I loved it !"

One of my top five authors EVER releases her latest novel this week - a fascinating tale whose structure will get people talking about it.

"On a morning that seems just like any other, Robbie wakes in his bed, his wife Emily asleep beside him, as always. He rises and dresses, makes his coffee, feeds his dogs, just as he usually would. But then he leaves Emily a letter and does something that will break her heart. As the years go back all the way to 1962, Robbie's actions become clearer as we discover the story of a couple with a terrible secret - one they will do absolutely anything to protect."

'Julie Cohen's writing is powerful, moving and truly beautiful' Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep

'It takes a lot to tempt me from crime, but this is one of the most beautiful and heartbreaking stories I've read' Emma Flint, author of Little Deaths

'This big, clever, tender and twisty love story reminded me of One Day & The Time Traveler's Wife' Erin Kelly

'Complex, compelling and beautiful, Together is the kind of novel that will stay with you forever' Rowan Coleman, author of We Are All Made of Stars

'Brave, compelling and original' Alice Peterson, author of A Song for Tomorrow

It is always a pleasure when one of my top 10 authors releases a new audiobook. Not only is Julie Cohens book out at the end of the month, but Rowan Coleman is releasing her new one too. So in the run up, I got one of her previous novels, now on audiobook. And I am loving it at the moment. All about a widowed mum who turns her life around by taking in interesting lodgers! How funny given my short story was about a lodger :-) (You can read it if you missed it, it's free, click here.)

Rowan has published some heartrending tales, usually with characters that are not only larger-than-life, there is always an aspect of their character that makes them very interesting. She is a master in getting you to care about their ups and downs, so I was looking forward to this one. And it's great! It's one of those that makes me want to get back in my car so I can listen to a bit more! I always do long journeys, you see, and these stories are my lifeline.

"Once upon a time, Ellie had her 'happily ever after' moment when she married her beloved Nick. But 15 years later, her husband's tragic death leaves her alone with their son and facing a mountain of debt. On the brink of bankruptcy, Ellie decides to rent out some rooms. And all too soon, the indomitable Allegra, estranged Sabine on secondment from Berlin and lads' mag aficionado Matt enter her ordered but fragile existence - each with their own messy life in tow. Ellie finds herself forced to step out of the pages of the romantic novels she hides behind, and learn to live - and love - again. Maybe a new chapter is about to begin for them all...."

 Having just finished this book, I found that I was very impressed with yet another layer of writing I didn't see coming. There is a little aspect to the plot I could not have predicted, which gradually emerged within the tale rather than being flagged up early in neon lights as some authors do. Well done Rowan - another winner as far as I am concerned. 

And watch out soon for Rowan's new book - 'the summer of Impossible Things'... ever wish you could go back in time and change your past...? Squeeee!

My colleague Jackie Kabler recommended this book as she wanted to know what i thought of the ending. So immediately it piqued my interest. 

This is a Sunday Times bestseller - kudos or what. 

"When a vulnerable woman is drawn into the lives of an enigmatic couple, she finds it hard to differentiate between reality and what truly lies beneath a seemingly perfect exterior."

The characters are very well delineated and the psychology of one of them is fascinating, given my recent blogs about emotional manipulators (see here).

Louise

Since her husband walked out, Louise has made her son her world, supporting them both with her part-time job. But all that changes when she meets...

David

Young, successful and charming - Louise cannot believe a man like him would look at her twice, let alone be attracted to her. But that all comes to a grinding halt when she meets his wife...

Adele

Beautiful, elegant and sweet - Louise's new friend seems perfect in every way. As she becomes obsessed by this flawless couple, entangled in the intricate web of their marriage, they each in turn reach out to her.

But only when she gets to know them both does she begin to see the cracks.... Is David really the man she thought she knew, and is Adele as vulnerable as she appears?

Just what terrible secrets are they both hiding, and how far will they go to keep them?"
