Moonshine by Christina Jones

Look what I received in the post today. Don't you just love that cover?

There are certain occasions that I look forward to each year, Christmas (family getting together); my birthday (for presents, not because of my age increasing); Easter (chocolate); holidays (of course); but in the book calendar, one that I most look forward to is Christina Jones's next book being published, and I know that, without fail, I'll be absorbed into the pages of a fabulous novel.

So, once I've finished reading Sarah Duncan's, Another Woman's Husband (very good it is too), I'll settle down, without chocolate as I'm on another diet (Day 2 today), and read. I can't wait.

Doesn't it look gorgeous? I can't decide whether I could actually bear to bend back the cover :-)

Enjoy and have some virtual chocolate (or lettuce, as I call it). I am also on a diet. It's not been an unqualified success so far...

Karen said...

Ooh I say that's looks lovely! Definitely a novel to enjoy with chocolate I'd say :o)

Ladybird World Mother said...

Oh I love her. Read it quick and tell us about it!

Chris said...

Ooooh Debs! Thank you! What a wonderfully generous blog post! You're a star. I do love the cover - and I really, really hope you'll enjoy the contents - with or without chocolate or - um - lettuce...

Carol said...

Ooooh, that's one gorgeous cover!! I do like her books so I'll have to get myself a copy :-)

*whispers* I think you should read it whilst eating dark chocolate and drinking a big glass of red wine...both are good for the heart you know!!

How exciting - I must get my hands on a copy soon.

Chad Aaron Sayban said...

That cover does look nice. You'll have to let us know how good it is.

Melissa Marsh said...

Ahh. I love the anticipation of a new book coming out. I love it even better when it's in my hot little hands! Enjoy!

Queenie said...

And best of all: you can call it research, so really it's work, right? ;-)

HelenMHunt said...

That certainly is a lovely cover. Look forward to hearing more about the book when you've read it.

Debi said...

Hi Debs - thanks for the comment on my blog. Perhaps we should set up a chocolate/apple exchange programme?

Debs said...

tam - it is fab. I love the cover so much, and can't wait to start reading.

Diets are such a bore, and will be worse when I'm back at work and want to comfort eat.

karen - I agree, then again I'll agree with anyone who thinks chocolate is a good idea.

lwm - I love all her books. Always such fun, and perfect heros.

chris - I'm sure I'll love it. Can't wait to start reading.

carol - definately a girl after my own heart. Red wine & dark choc, yum.

chrish - oh do. Chris's books are unmissable.

chad - it's great. Will let you know.

melissa - I agree with you completely.

queenie - it'll certainly be research on how to write a darn good book.

helen - will enjoy doing a review for this book.

debi - chocolate/apple exchange programme sounds like a fine idea to me :)

Phillipa said...

Hope I haven't posted twice but I was just saying - yes - the cover is gorgeous and it's a must have for me. P x

Anna said...

Delicious novel to which you can sink your teeth!!

Good luck with the diet... :)))

Debs said...

phillipa - I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do.

anna - 'delicious' is right.

Thanks, doing okay so far, but only started the other day, so it's still early days yet. Doesn't help that I have a husband who thinks I'm fine as I am (sweet, but not helpful).

Flowerpot said...

great cover - what a treat having two great books to read!

rachael said...

Debs thank you so much for letting me read Zoe Sharp's Hard Knocks... LOVED every word and could not put it down!!! Brilliantly written and I did not even skip bits, did reread bits mind as the story was fab and kept me wanting more all the time. You know what book I will be getting next! Sorry, to all other authors but move over for "Charlie Fox". Now doesnt all woman wish they were this character, I so feel her (just a shame I have to look in the mirror!).

Also, bit congrats to J on being such a star, smart bum!

Speak soon
lotsa love
Rach

Debs said...

flowerpot - it is lovely, isn't it?

rach - glad you enjoyed the book. As soon as I saw it, I knew you'd love it, and she's such a fab person too. It's such a good feeling finding a writer you love, an knowing you have all those books to look forward to.

Thrilled for J. Now we just have to get organised for uni!

suzanne - no problem. I'm looking forward to reading my copy too.

Leigh Russell said...

Lovely cover. Makes you want to walk right into it and sit down . . .

Debs said...

leigh - it certainly does, and thankfully today I'll be able to.
