I don't normally do a lot of posts about what I am reading now, I am more inclined to post once I have actually finished the book. I am, however, going to make an exception today and I promise there is a good reason for doing so!
Today, I started reading Paullina Simons' new book, which is called Road to Paradise! I am a total Paullina fan girl, having been introduced to her writing through the fabulous The Bronze Horseman, and then going on to read the other books in the trilogy, and then most of her other books. I do have two of her books still left to read that I will get to eventually. In fact, I am such a fan girl, I am going to not one but two events when Paullina tours Australia later in November.
As much as I love to spread the Paullina Simons love, there is a major problem. Her books are so darned hard to come by, particularly in the US. Whilst it appears as though Road to Paradise is being released in Canada next month, the release date is much later in the UK, and who knows when it will be released in the US. So, I have decided that I will do a little something to help rectify this and I am going to give away a copy of Road to Paradise! Who knows, I might even throw in a copy of Tatiana's Table (or one of her other books) as well, depending on postage costs.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post before Sunday 11 November.
It's 1981 and Shelby Sloane gets a canary yellow Mustang convertible as a graduation present. She plans an odyssey to find her mother who left her many years earlier. When Shelby's former best friend Gina asks to come along, Shelby reluctantly agrees.
When they see a young woman hitchhiking on the side of a country road, they don't want to pick her up. They turn their gaze away. But days later, they find her again. Candy gets in. She needs to get to Paradise – that's Paradise, California. But she is beset by dangers on a scale beyond the wildest imaginings of Shelby and Gina. She sucks them into her treacherous world and her own frightful journey.
The ride that began with high spirits and good humour proceeds into the darkest backroads of America, when Shelby, Candy and Gina are forced to make real moral choices that have critical consequences for their future, and by their ordeals they take a very different journey.
