Goodreads Giveaway number nine for me!
I entered for this particular giveaway competition, not only because I loved the cover art of the book, or because of its intriguing premise, but because Cornwall has to be my favourite coastal region of the country.
I guess I am more than a little biased, as I am a southerner through and through and Cornwall is just a short two or three hour drive away. I am sure that there are many other coastal regions within the UK which have as much, if not more to offer, but they can never hold such a special place in my heart.
Liz’s passion seems to match my own, so having her write about an area which is obviously dear to her, how can the story be anything but captivating and how can I resist reading it 🙂
Victoria thinks she’s finally got what she wanted : the gorgeous Cornish estate her family owned for generations is now hers following her husband’s sudden death. After years of a loveless marriage and many secret affairs of her own, Victoria thinks widowhood will suit her very well indeed …
But both Demi and Victoria are in for a surprise. Can these two very different women find a way forward when luck changes their lives so drastically?
Liz Fenwick was born in Massachusetts, is a wife and mother of three and after several international moves, she now divides her time between Dubai, where her husband works and which is home to their two mad cats and her adopted second home of Cornwall.
She made her first trip to Cornwall in 1989, fell in love with the Duchy and some seven years later, bought her home there, near the Helford, a place which has been the inspiration for her stories to date, and from where she follows her own words of advice …
You need to write your own book, the book of your heart and not chase the fads. It truly has to be the story you want to tell, it needs that fire, your fire in it. Then enjoy the time pre-publication. It is time to learn all you can about your craft and the industry. It isn’t a race. Finally listen to your work. I have text to voice software that reads the books to me. Listening I can hear things that I would miss on the page.
