Welcome to my Blogoversary countdown Giveaway and thank you for joining me in celebrating!
The lovely Zara Stoneley is here today and has a suprise prize for you.... a copy of Good Enough to Trust AND a copy of Good Enought to Share!!!! Keep reading!
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I live in a country cottage in Cheshire with a naughty mouse catching, curtain climbing cat, my wonderful guitar playing, video making, minecraft mad teenage son and a wine drinking, sun loving, masterchef in the making sexy alpha hero.
I love sexy high heels...good food....good wine....music...coffee (lots and lots of coffee)... and sunshine, so whenever I can head off in search of the sun and inspiration for my stories.
I've been a consultant, a teacher, a mother, a wife, a lover... and have always been a writer. So that's me! But if there's anything else you want to know please ask, I love to hear from people.
What is the name of the book you are giving away? I’m giving away two – ‘Good Enough to Share’ and ‘Good Enough to Trust’.
Can you show us the cover and the blurb?
Good Enough to Share
One Christmas, four friends - will they still be together by New Year's Day?
Divorce wasn’t part of the plan for Holly, but then again nor was spending the festive period with two sexy men and Santa’s little helper! With a disastrous marriage behind her, and three good friends who are willing to share, moving on could be fun – if only she can accept that sometimes her heart is wiser than her head.
Dane doesn’t do commitment, which suits Holly just fine. But when things heat up between the four friends, he’s forced to face up to his past. Will realising he’s good enough mean he no longer wants to share…?
Laid back Charlie knows that if his best friend becomes his lover he could end up losing big time. But can he resist? And when the girl he once loved comes back, who will he decide to spend the New Year with?
And Sophie just wants to have fun. She’s got the answers to everyone's problems, except her own …. is she the one who needs good friends most of all?
Will a caring, sharing, lust and love filled Christmas lead to the happy ever after they all desire?
WARNING - Christmas may never seem the same again!
Drop by my website if you’d like to read the blurb for the second book, and find out what will be in book 3, Making it Good Enough! You can find it all here - www.zarastoneley.com
Is the book part of a series or do you plan for it to be part of a series? These books are the first two in a series – the third book will be out later in the year.
What made you come up with the idea for this story?
Well… you know how we’re always told Christmas is for sharing? I thought I’d push the meaning a bit and share more than the presents! But I also wanted to keep other festive themes in there, like family, and giving, looking after each other.
Christmas is a time when we often take stock and think about what people really mean to us, and who and what is important in our lives – so that’s what is at the heart of the story. I think it all really started with the question, what’s most important to us, our friends or family? I know there’s that saying ‘you can choose your friends…’, but is it sometimes just easier to deal with people who don’t know everything about us? And how much of sorting out our problems can be done with the help of friends – and how much is just down to us to work out on our own?
It was great fun exploring the dynamics within the group and how it changes as their relationships develop in different ways. Will jealousy tear them apart? Can friends to lovers work (especially when there’s more than one friend involved?!)? And are they good enough?
Thanks for coming by today Zara!!!
