When I was asked if I wanted to take part in the Promo Blitz for The Other Side of Morning, I jumped at the chance. I do love a good book and this really is a good book. As always, I left it until the last few days to read, I hate writing reviews months before posting them on here. So I gave myself three days to devour it and devour it I did. Blending rural West Somerset, with Italian Lakes and Spanish Cities, Joanna has written a book rich in description that leaves you wanting to be there. Her characters are real and relatable. From the spoilt Lucy Benedict, to the hard-working Charlotte Kendrick and entitled Therese, there are girls to love and hate. Not to mention the men, whether you like a rock star like Christian Rossetti or an Italian stallion Marco D’Alesandro, Joanna has written a guy for you. I say it every time, I don’t do spoilers, but what I do is implore you to read this book. I found myself wishing I could visit the rolling hills of West Somerset, or sit on a terrace by a lake in Italy (instead of the Ryanair flight from Dublin I was actually on) with the company of the simply delicious Marco. This book will keep you guessing, it will take you on a journey of will-they-wont-they romance and entertain you. I cannot recommend it enough!
Now a little about Jo Lambert the delightful author of this must read!
Born and raised in rural Wiltshire, Jo Lambert grew up with a love of books and a vivid imagination. As a child she enjoyed creating her own adventure stories similar to Enid Blyton’s Famous Five. Writing always stayed with her, but college, work and eventually marriage found it kept very much in the background as a hobby. In 2009 everything changed when she decided to self-publish a novel she had completed. After When Tomorrow Comes, three other books – Love Lies and Promises, The Ghost of You and Me and Between Today and Yesterday followed. In 2013 she decided to give up full time work to concentrate fully on her writing. Her fifth novel The Other Side of Morning was accepted by ThornBerry Publishing UK and is now available in e-book form with a paperback version to follow shortly.
Jo is married and lives in a village on the eastern edge of Bath, Somerset with one small grey feline called Mollie. She shares her husband with his ‘other woman’ Bridget – a 48 year old white MG Midget who keeps him occupied while she is busy writing.
The Other Side of Morning
Charlotte Kendrick’s ill-fated relationship with rock star Christian Rosetti still haunts her. The new man in her life, handsome, rich Italian restaurateur Marco D’Alesandro, is everything she wants. But when beautiful heiress Rossana Caravello arrives to spend time with his family as their house guest she wonders whether history is about to repeat itself. Marco insists he loves her and that he has no interest in their guest, but how can Charlotte believe him when everything about his behaviour around Rossana indicates he is lying? Giving him the benefit of the doubt, Charlotte wonders whether his ruthless stepmother Thérèse may be involved, and decides to find out more about the young heiress. However, far from putting her mind at rest, what she discovers leaves her feeling more unsettled than ever about her future with Marco…
From rural West Somerset to the glorious rolling landscape of Tuscany and the Italian lakes THE OTHER SIDE OF MORNING is a story of love, betrayal, deception and ultimate sacrifice.
