Ginger Book Geek 

Oh my, I was hooked on ‘Love Me Goodbye’ from the moment I picked it up and started to read.  The author’s writing style is such that she grabs your attention right from the beginning and she doesn’t let you go until you have read the last word on the last page.   Read more here

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.

My Review

This is book 3 in the Ruby Baker series.  It is the 1960s so bear that in mine when reading as opinions and safety have changed a lot since then.

This series is definitely growing on me and I am hoping for many more.

The story begins at a horse race.  Everyone is in high spirits and very excited when a girl suddenly runs out in front of the horses.  A tragic accident, suicide or murder?  There are a lot of opinions but nobody really saw anything or did they?

This is a story that moves along at a fairly fast pace and I was gripped all the way through.  There is a lot going on and that brings with it a lot of interest.  We expect competition and gambling in the horse racing world but there is a lot more going on here.

Suicide (or murder) by horse is a unique idea.  The victim was playing the field so maybe jealousy was a motive or maybe not.  The suspense builds all the way through the book and we are nearly at the end before the pieces fit together.

Ruby and her gang of amateur detectives are realistic characters that have grown and developed over the series.  There are also a couple of back stories that could make the reader feel they have missed something but apart from that the book works well as stand alone.

Adrenaline pumping suspense, twists, turns and red herrings this is an intriguing story that will keep you entertained.  5 stars from me.


Author Bio

Hi I’m Daisy White – mum, entrepreneur, and writer. I started off self-publishing, then signed YA series to two fabulous US publishers.

I’ve always wanted to write crime but none of my initial manuscripts were anywhere near good enough to show the world!

In 2016 I rewrote an earlier idea and entered it into the UK International Novel Writing Competition. It was long-listed and that gave me the confidence I needed to submit to publishers.

‘My second novel for Joffe Books, and book two in the Ruby Baker Seaside Mysteries, ‘Before I Found You’, was published in Feb 2018 and became an immediate Amazon bestseller.
