A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to take part in a blog tour for one of Samantha Tonge’s books and have since devoured every new release as well as making my way through her back catalogue of titles. I fell in love with Sam’s easy writing style along with her honestly written and often flawed characters which when combined make for a wonderfully engaging and honest read.
I was over the moon when Sam won The Jackie Collins Romantic Thriller Award for her novel Knowing You at the Romantic Novelists Awards last month, a very well deserved win and I’m even more excited to be helping with the exclusive reveal of her next books stunning cover!
The Summer Island Swap is due for release on 4th June this year and promises to be the perfect Summer holiday read! Take a look at all the must-know details of this forthcoming release from one of my favourite authors, plus get a first look at the books Summery cover!
About The Book
Sometimes the best holidays are the ones you least expect…
After a long and turbulent year, Sarah is dreaming of the five-star getaway her sister has booked them on. White sands, cocktails, massages, the Caribbean is calling to them.
But the sisters turn up to tatty beaches, basic wooden shacks, a compost toilet and outdoor cold water showers. It turns out that at the last minute Amy decided a conservation project would be much more fun than a luxury resort.
So now Sarah’s battling mosquitoes, trying to stomach fish soup and praying for a swift escape. Life on a desert island though isn’t all doom and gloom. They’re at one with nature, learning about each other and making new friends. And Sarah is distracted by the dishy, yet incredibly moody, island leader she’s sure is hiding a secret.
