Rebekah, Junction Publishing and I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all the wonderful Bloggers on the Blog Tour for POPPY BLOOM by Rebekah Dobson. Your help in promoting this book is very much appreciated.

What the Bloggers think:

Black Books Blog 

The book starts off with a bang when Vicki is stuck at Portland when the city is destroyed by a terrorist bomb.  From there we also meet Ambrose who is trying to get home, and the two of them try and help each other.  Read more here

Life in Rose Tinted Glasses 

I warmed to both Ambrose and Vicki as characters and really liked watching the dynamics of their relationship change as the story progressed. Both characters definitely changed and developed as people as the book went on, and all the changes were positive.   Read more here

Ginger Book Geek 

I have to be honest and say that I don’t usually read dystopian or science fiction type books because I just find them too unlikely to happen or unbelievable even for a vivid imagination like mine.  That was so not the case for ‘Poppy Bloom’ as I loved reading it and I found the situations described entirely plausible and believable.   Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews 

Oh my goodness! What a story! I could not put it down! Enough exclamation marks but I would recommend this book to all.  Read more here

#Guest Post: Where did the book idea come from?


What I didn’t really like was being left with a huge, out of this life proportions cliffhanger at the end of the book. I mean come on! Now it’s all I can do to not eat my nails as I wait for the next book to come out to learn what happens next!   Read more here

Poppy Bloom by Rebekah Dobson

Available from  AMAZON

Vicki Morel believes she and Will, her gorgeous fiancé, have it all. They’re living the American dream. That is, until Portland, Oregon is leveled by a terrorist grade light weapon, and she loses Will at the airport.

Ambrose Palamo is an aviation student who wants one thing: to go home to Samoa. But when Portland is leveled, and he meets Vicki, he promises to help her find her fiancé instead. What he doesn’t expect is the feelings that start to form for her as they search the dangerous Oregon woodlands.

Sometimes love isn’t what you think it is.

The poppies bloom reminds them of what they’ve lost, while giving them the courage to face a brand new future.

BLOG TOUR – Love me Goodbye (Prelude #5) by Meg Buchanan @junctionpublish #romanticsuspense

Today I am sharing my Review of LOVE ME GOODBYE as part of the Blog Tour. This is book 5 in the prelude series and is a gripping read.

Love me Goodbye by Meg Buchanan

Available from AMAZON

Adam Turner is having a really bad night.
The girl he loves has gone back to her cheating fiancé.
So Adam is in a bar, aiming for oblivion

Then the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen walks in.

But Genevieve has problems.
She needs somewhere to spend the night until she can work out a way to disappear.
Then she sees Adam watching her.
He’s answer to those problems in the short- term,

From the moment they meet they both sense something special happening.
It could be amazing.
But Adam is leaving in four days.
And Geneviève has a husband.

Can they overcome the bad timing?
Will they find a way to be together?

My thoughts

This is book 5 in the Prelude series but they do work very well as stand-alone.

Stadium has been offered a contract to play in Australia for 3 months.  It is a dream come true for Luke and the others are happy to support him.  Luke is happy to escape after his philandering resulted in him being dumped by his fiancée, Tessa, and his girlfriend.  Adam holds a torch for Tessa and is disappointed that she appears to have forgiven Luke and is drowning his sorrows in a bar when in walks Genevieve.

Genevieve is on the run from her controlling husband and that brings a stong element of suspense to the love story.  Will Mason find them?

Time and circumstances are all wrong for this love at first sight relationship to work.  Adam is packing to go to Australia and Genevieve wants to go home to her parents in Uruguay.  Trying to make the most of the little time they have while keeping their eyes open for Mason the couple are up against it.

This is a gripping read that will appeal to readers of Romantic Suspense.  I am looking forward to the next book.

Author Profile

I live in Paeroa, a small town in New Zealand, with my husband and a black labrador. Most of my books are set in my home town, simply because it has a rich history, and the streets already have names, so do the rivers and the mountain nearby, and the neighbouring towns also have names, so I save time on world building.
