A weekly (or when I remember) update of ramblings, writings and book promotions.
I’m from the UK, but spend more months on the road with my husband, usually in another country. I am currently in Spain and enjoying the relaxed way of life. I sometimes write about the countries I visit, but mostly I blog about books and updates about my books, which are fiction and nonfiction.

Favors for Friends
Emily Richardson and Tim Atkinson are kids when they first meet. Fast forward eight years, a chance reunion sparks feelings between them, but Emily's mom conspires to keep them apart. Later in their twenties, she's a famous vocalist who feels disillusioned with life, and he's an Air Force veteran who makes a living training service dogs. Can he find a way to break through her hardened heart?
Sally Braddock’s serene lifestyle atop a mountain in Vail, Colorado, changes drastically each year when her three spoiled children and their spouses visit her – and her money – for Christmas. They live off their trust funds, which are disappearing quickly, and spend most of the holidays bickering and hitting up their mother for money. This year, Sally makes an announcement that sends her children into a tizzy, an announcement so extreme that it pushes someone in the house to murder. The storm inside the house is matched by a raging blizzard outside, and the family finds themselves snowbound with a killer.
I found myself being drawn into the story with every page. This is the first Judy Moore book that I have read and was unsure of what to expect. Moore created a family, albeit a wealthy one, that actually behaved like a normal dysfunctional family. With all the sibling rivalry and bickering. I enjoyed Sally’s (the mother) response and found myself reflecting on how I handled my family Christmases. The murder mystery storyline had twists and turns and you have to read to the end to find out the ‘whodunit’, but it was definitely not a chore to wait. A lovely readable story that has wetted my appetite to read more book from the author.
