Blog Tour Stop - The Twleve Dates of Christmas by Lisa Dickenson

Today I am SUPER EXCITED to share with you my Christmas Q&A with Lisa Dickenson, author extraordinaire.

So here we go!

What drink says Christmas for you?

Lisa:  Baileeeyyyyyyys – it’s the best best best and I would like some now, please.
 
Trish:  I'm a Baileys girl! But traditionally, it's always been eggnog (non - alcoholic).
 
Q: What's your most treasures Christmas gift you ever received?
 
Lisa:  That’s a hard one… Does the engagement ring I got a week before Christmas in 2010 count? Yes, yes it does!
 
Trish:  The flowered blanket my Mum crocheted and gave me the last Xmas before she passed. It's gorgeous and I love it!
 
Q: What's your fave festive song?
 
Lisa:  So many!  I love Last Christmas by Wham for it’s wonderful cheese-factor.
 
Trish: O Holy Night sung by Reba McEntire. Just beautiful and gives me goosebumps.
 
Q: What’s your fave movie to watch on Christmas Eve?
 
Lisa: It's A Wonderful Life - just a perfect film to curl up with the night before Christmas...
 
Trish: A Charlie Brown Christmas. Have watched it every year since I was tiny and it isn't Christmas without it!
 
Q:  What Christmas book do you wish you’d written?
 
Lisa:  A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – to me, this is the ultimate Christmas story.
 
Trish: The Twelve Dates of Christmas! Seriously, it's so funny and festive and cute! I adore it!!
 
Q:  How do you like your Christmas jumpers?
 
Lisa:  As tacky and 3D and garishly-coloured as possible, preferably with advent calendar windows sewn in and bells dangling off the arms.
 
Trish: On someone else... I love when other people where them but it's not something I'll ever wear! I'll wear Christmas socks and even my Muppets Merry Kissmas undies, but not ever a Christmas jumper! Bah Humbug!!
 

That was so much fun! Thanks so much, Lisa! The Twelve Dates of Christmas is out in PAPERBACK on 22nd October from Little Brown and I urge you to buy it! It's brilliant!!

Review - Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt

I am so, so excited to be bringing you my review of Sofa, So Good; Me Life Story by Scarlett Moffatt!!

What They Say:
Fact: Did you know, over its lifespan, your sofa will witness roughly 293 arguments and 1,369 cuddles?
Hiya, my name's Scarlett Moffatt and I love random facts. Almost as much as I love sitting on me sofa. You might know me best from my most famous and celebrated sit thus far on the I'm A Celebrity throne. You might also know me from all sorts of other seats, most especially my Gogglebox sofa. Well this book is my attempt at telling me life story through a whole series of them!
So I'd like you right now to stop what you're doing and take a seat, whether it be in the comfort of your own home, on the top deck of the bus, on the tube (so you don't have to make eye contact with anybody) or on the throne of the house (a.k.a. the toilet). I want you to get comfortable and get ready to laugh, cry and maybe even learn a bit, as I chat to you about some of t…

What They Say:
The boy studied the bruise turning yellow at the base of his neck. With quick fingers his mother tightened his tie, and pulled his collar high above it. Her eyes alone said, We will not speak of this...

Years later, a man is found shot dead in a local park. On his phone is a draft text: I can’t keep this secret any longer. The recipient is unnamed.

Detective Robyn Carter knows this secret is the key to the case, but his friends and family don’t offer any clues, and all her team have to go on is a size-ten footprint. 

Then a nurse is found in a pool of blood at the bottom of her staircase, and a seemingly insignificant detail in her friend’s statement makes Robyn wonder: are the two bodies connected, and has the killer only just begun?

When another body confirms Robyn’s worst fears, she realises she’s in a race against time to stop the killer before they strike again. But just as she thinks she’s closing in, …
