I have heard and seen author Marybeth Mayhew Whalen’s name mentioned so many times during my blogosphere travels, that I was really pleased to have been contacted by the lovely Katie from Little Bird Publicity, with a review opportunity for Marybeth’s latest novel, due out in May 2019.

Cover Image Of The Book 'Only Ever Her' By Author Marybeth Mayhew WhalenIt was to be the perfect wedding—until the bride disappeared.

Annie Taft’s wedding is four days away, and it will be one of the grandest anyone can remember in her small South Carolina town. Preparations are in order. Friends and family are gathering in anticipation. Everything is going according to plan. Except that Annie herself has vanished. Did she have second thoughts?

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'.
