It’s a real pleasure today to be joining the book blitz fanfare for Harper’s Highland Fling, the latest book from the wonderful Lizzie Lamb, published today and now available both for kindle and in paperback. My thanks to Kelly at Love Books Tours for the invitation and support.
I’m so delighted to see a new book from Lizzie – I’ve had the privilege and pleasure to follow this book’s journey to publication, and it’s wonderful to see it finally available, with that really gorgeous cover. As well as enjoying Lizzie’s excellent company on more occasions than I can count, I also think she’s a very fine writer indeed – I was quite late discovering her books, but I really loved Girl in the Castle (you’ll find my review here) , and enjoyed Take Me, I’m Yours even more (Logan MacFarlane, from the moment he roars into view on his vintage Triumph motorcycle, has to be one of my favourite ever romantic heroes – you’ll find my review here).
So, let’s take a closer look at Harper’s Highland Fling…
After a gruelling academic year, head teacher Harper MacDonald is looking forward to a summer holiday trekking in Nepal.
However, her plans are scuppered when wayward niece, Ariel, leaves a note announcing that she’s running away with a boy called Pen. The only clue to their whereabouts is a footnote: I’ll be in Scotland.
Cue a case of mistaken identity when Harper confronts the boy’s father, Rocco Penhaligon, and accuses him of cradle snatching her niece and ruining her future. At loggerheads, Harper and Rocco set off in hot pursuit of the teenagers, but the canny youngsters are always one step ahead. And, in a neat twist, it is the adults who end up in trouble, not the savvy teenagers.
Fasten your seatbelt for the road trip of your life! It’s going to be a bumpy ride!
The blog tour begins on 30th November – I’ll be sharing my own review on 4th December…
Yes, I’m rather looking forward to this one!
About the author
With Scottish, Irish, and Brazilian blood in her veins, it’s hardly surprising that Lizzie Lamb is a writer. She even wrote extra scenes for the films she watched as a child and acted out in the playground with her friends. She is ashamed to admit that she kept all the good lines for herself. Luckily, she saves them for her readers these days.
Lizzie’s love of writing went on hold while she pursued a successful teaching career, finishing up as a Deputy Headteacher of a large primary school. Since deciding to leave the profession to realise her dream of becoming a published novelist, Lizzie hasn’t looked back. She wrote Tall, Dark and Kilted – which echoes her love of her homeland in every page, not to mention heroes in kilts – and published it. Lizzie loves the quickfire interchange between the hero and heroine – like in old black and white Hollywood movies – and hope this comes over in her writing.
