What’s New On The Shelves This Week?

As I have only one new book to add to my shelves this week, but it is the latest title to be published by an author who has been known to me for some time, I decided to make this a combined post and also highlight both author and book on my ‘New Titles’ pages.

Picture of an English red post boxMailbox Monday is a gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the last week.

Be warned that Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.

Mailbox Monday, is currently ‘on tour’ and being hosted by a different blogger each month.

Your host for December 2012 is: Suko over at Suko’s Notebook.

So why not stop by, leave a link to your own Mailbox Monday post, oh! and don’t forget to leave a comment for Suko, after all, we all like to receive them!

This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!


Emily’s skating career and personal life have never been more golden.

She and her partner Chris have won every competition they’ve entered this season, and she’s found the man of her dreams in her coach Sergei.

But when one of the biggest competitions of the year takes Emily and Sergei to Russia, Sergei’s past explodes into the present and makes Emily doubt everything in their future.

Jennifer, is an author who I first met earlier in 2012, when she contacted me about a possible review of her debut novel ‘Life On The Edge’. She had chosen to weave this fiction story around a subject which is very dear to her heart, Ice Skating and made it a spectacular success with her in depth knowledge of the sport, although purely as a an avid fan, I hasten to add!

Whilst ‘Life On The Edge’ works perfectly well as a stand alone story, Jennifer did indicate at the time that she had an idea bubbling away, for a second installment to this romantic saga …. and less than a year later, she has come up with the goods!

An image of author Jennifer ComeauxJennifer Comeaux had always loved writing, even as a small child  and had long cherished a dream, of one day seeing her name in print.

Dreams however, are often dictated by the practicalities of life and Jennifer compromised by  earning a Master of Accounting from Tulane University and becoming a Certified Public Accountant in South Louisiana, working as a corporate tax manager for a Fortune 100 company.
While at Tulane, she wrote for the school newspaper and whilst seeing her name in a byline was great, she still dreamed of writing a novel and having it published, which she finally did after some encouragement from friends and family.
Jennifer has always been passionate about figure skating and follows the sport closely, although she has only ever stepped onto an ice rink once. When not working, she can often be found travelling widely, to attend figure skating events and competitions, always with her camera to hand.
It was this passion, together with its experiences and characters, which gave her the idea of a storyline for her first novel and after much writing and re-writing, ‘Life on the Edge ‘, became her first published book and achieved the dream of seeing the name Jennifer Comeaux, firmly in print.
This is Jennifer’s reply, when she was asked recently, ‘What is the most rewarding thing about being a writer?’
When readers tell me they felt an emotional connection to my story or my characters, it means the world to me. It’s what I want most when I write a story – to touch people’s hearts. To hear I’ve done that is the biggest reward of all.

As this was an author invitation to read and review, a download of ‘Edge Of The Past’ was sent to me free of charge, by its author, Jennifer Comeaux.

This will in no way influence any comments I may express about the book, in any blog article I may post. Any thoughts or comments are my own personal opinion and I am in no way being monetarily compensated for this, or any other article.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
