What the bloggers thought
Books From Dusk Till Dawn
I really loved getting to know the characters in the story, especially Anne who had to overcome so many huge obstacles and prejudices in her life. There were some really unusual friendships formed, which at first I didn’t trust but there again Anne has a sparkle about her that when anyone really lets themselves get to know her realise they have a loyal friend.

Overall it was a really good read, which kept me guessing and made me feel sorry for people in Nigeria who are treated this way. Read more here
Big Family Organised Chaos
It was a very different book to the ones I have been reading lately and it certainly makes you feel grateful for the ‘calm’ life that I have, I love to really get into a book and empathise with the characters, and this book certainly does that, although at times it was quite difficult to continue reading as I am quite an emotional person and get fully involved in the story, I guess when you are reading about losing loved ones and finding out you have something wrong too, the readers start to look closer at their own lives and imagine such tragedy themselves, which nobody wants to do, but somehow it had me gripped and wanting to find out more.

…to the moon and back (Anne Book 1)
Available from AMAZON
Is there always a light at the end of every tunnel? 26 year old Anne is seriously beginning to question if she is ever going to find it. After a series of devastating blows, the young nurse finally catches a break; Ben, the love of her life asks her to marry him and it suddenly feels like she can start to smile again. But Anne has a secret that is threatening to destroy it all and this time, there is no easy way out. Will she be able to beat the odds and have the happy ending she has always longed for?
Anne has her life turned upside down. Her mum loses a battle with cancer and Anne is working all the shifts she can to repay money borrowed to pay health care costs. Then fate deals another blow as she is diagnosed with endometrial cancer. She continues working to save for a life saving operation but when she collapses she realises time has run out.
In a life or death decision she breaks off her engagement to the love of her life and marries a rich surgeon. After a hysterectomy and chemotherapy she arrives at her marital home to try to live a different life as a wife to a man she rarely knows her dreams of children with Ben dashed into the ground.
We follow Anne as she struggles with life work and relationships in her efforts to gain some sort of control over the pieces of her life she has left. Is she strong enough for the massive task ahead? Even her nursing career is in jeopardy as she finds working as a midwife is more painful than she ever thought possible.
Although this is not my usual genre I found it totally gripping and couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough. An emotional roller coaster of a read but absolutely brilliant! 5 stars from me.
I live in sunny Spain and have been writing for about six years now. I started with a collection of cat stories to raise funds for a shelter and then moved on to my first suspense novel. I write both in Spanish and English and have series in both languages. Though I am a biologist, writing is my true passion. I feel incredibly lucky to be able to do what I love.
