A Girl Like Her A Girl Like Her by Talia Hibbert is 99c at Amazon! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and isn’t being price-matched just yet. This is the first book in the Ravenswood series. The book description has a content warning, as there are mentions of past domestic violence. Readers loved the grumpy, prickly heroine, which is totally my catnip. However, others mentioned having difficulties connecting with the characters. Everyone has secrets. He wants all of hers. Meet the man next door… After years of military service, Evan Miller wants a quiet life. The small town of Ravenswood seems perfect—until he stumbles upon a vicious web of lies with his new neighbour at its centre. Ruth Kabbah is rude, awkward, and, according to everyone in town, bad news. Thing is, no-one will tell Evan why. Does she perform ritual sacrifices? Howl at the moon? Pour the milk before the tea? He has no clue. But he desperately wants to find out. Because Ruth doesn’t seem evil to him; she seems lonely.

In the not very distant future, climate change and its related disasters are about to make Earth uninhabitable. Astronomers have located a Goldilocks planet – one that is suitable for human life without being terraformed. Women have been slowly but steadily edged out of high status jobs, so even though a particular crew of women is best trained for the mission to be the first to land on and settle the planet, they are supposed to be replaced by an all male crew – until Valerie Black and her crew of women steal the ship. One of these women is Naomi, the protagonist of the story, who is the ship botanist and also Valerie’s foster daughter. As one…

A | BN | K | AB Today I’m chatting with author Carly Bloom about writing cowboy romcoms, small communities that include really annoying people, and the reality of ranch life. No one walks around with their shirt open and their abs hanging out. Can you believe that?? We also take a non-spoilery dive into her latest book, Cowboy Come Home, so if you’re looking for your next read, perhaps this will make you happy. We talk a fair bit about her #homemadebookcover, which made me laugh: Fashionably late to @GrandCentralPub's #homemadebookcover challenge, but tada! It's not perfect (hat is the wrong color) but everything else is spot on. #cowboyromcom pic.twitter.com/P7msNUocIZ — Carly Bloom COWBOY COME HOME is out now!
