But a joyful outlook is a tough thing to muster in the post-pandemic age of economic decline and social unrest. Fortunately, a new book is bringing hope and timely actionable advice people can use to better their lives in the post-COVID era.

Every Little Breath

How much could one phone call change your life?

‘Only you can save her. If she dies, it is your fault.’

When radio presenter, Casey Fallon, answers a call she assumes it is a prank. But then a woman’s body is discovered, and she finds herself up against a cruel and calculating killer who wants her to find his victims before they take their last breath.

Fifteen years ago, Casey was a key witness in the trial of serial killer, Steve Noakes, and her evidence helped put him behind bars for the murders of five women.

Someone remembers what happened that summer. Someone who is desperate for revenge. Someone who won’t stop until Casey has been punished.

The Single Mums’ Book Club

Three friends, three single mums, one quest to find love…

It’s 8:30am and I’m already utterly exhausted. My son has lost his football boots, my daughter is ready for school dressed only in her vest and knickers, and of course, my 1-year-old has filled his nappy for what feels like the tenth time this morning.

As for my husband? He’s decided marriage doesn’t suit him, and well… buggered off.

All hope of ‘me time’ has but dwindled to sipping half a glass of wine whilst shouting after the kids. But everything is about to change.

I’m taking control of my life! I’ve joined… a book club.

#CoverReveal #NannyNeeded #GeorginaCross #Bantam #PenguinRandomHouse

It's the exciting Cover Reveal for NANNY NEEDED by Georgina Cross! This is unlike any nanny book you've read before. Hear why they're calling it: ORIGINAL CREEPY & FUN: It's Gossip Girl meets Rebecca in a wildly compulsive take on the gothic suspense novel. Readers will peer behind penthouse walls for a glimpse of how the other side lives, and will be sucked in by the irresistibly creepy atmosphere.

A young woman takes a job as a nanny for a wealthy family, thinking she's found her entree into a better only only to discover instead she's walked into a world of deception and dark secrets.

The ad reads: Nanny needed. Discretion is of the utmost importance. Special conditions apply.

When Sarah Larsen sees the exclusive address on the ad, she tells herself she's found her ticket out of a life of long hours waiting tables for little pay. At the interview, the job seems like a dream come true: a glamorous penthouse apartment on the Upper West Side; a salary that adds several zeroes to her current income; the beautiful, worldly mother of her charge, who feels more like a friend than a potential boss. She's overjoyed when they offer her the position, signing the NDA without a second thought. These are important people after all-- they can't be too careful about who they hire. 

In retrospect, the notice in her lobby was less an engraved invitation than a waving red flag. For there is something strange about the Bird family. Why does the beautiful Mrs. Bird never leave the apartment alone? And what happened to the nanny before her who disappeared under mysterious circumstances? It soon becomes clear that the odd behaviors Sarah initially dismissed as the eccentricities of the wealthy are hiding something much darker and more sinister. But by then it's too late for Sarah to seek help--she's become complicit in their secrets. And, after all, discretion is of the utmost importance.

NANNY NEEDED publishes on October 5 with Bantam, Penguin Random House, and is available for pre-order:

Heidi Lynn’s Book Reviews

First, I want to thank JE Rowney and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with this book so I may bring you with this review. 

JE Rowney gives her readers an in-depth eye opening glimpse of Midwife just Starting Out her career. I found it to be very fascinating as JE educated us not only on the job itself but some of the cases.  

I have been a fan of JE’s Midwife series so I was glad to see it continue. However, this book can be read as a standalone and you will be able to follow along just fine. 

One of the many things I truly love about this book was the strong friendship bond between Violet and her bestie Zoe. No matter how hard times got for either of them they always had eachother’s back to lean on. 

JE Interjected some very wise words of wisdom and inspiration into this story through her characters. 

Anxiety is an issue that Violent faces in this issue. I speak from experience when I say it is not an easy one to deal with. The fear of the unknown especially in this day of age can be scary for many. In some of the scenes I could feel what she was going through.

Broken Hearts
M. O’Keefe
(Hearts #2)
Publication date: April 27th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


His name thrums through me like a heartbeat.

I climbed out of the smoldering crater of my life only to find myself back in the middle of a slow-motion trainwreck. I’m hunted, torn between my past and present, ripped apart by two warring families. My husband is dead, and his killer is the only man who’s ever felt the deep well of emotion I keep hidden from the world.


Vicious and scarred—his rough touch is seared into my skin, but his soft caresses are what break down my walls bit by bit. Until there’s only me left. My soul in his bloody hands, and my broken heart beating just for him. Only him.


My shadowy protector, my phantom lover—kiss me or kill me, I don’t care. As long as you’re the one who does it.

Melanie Summers
(Crazy Royal Love, #1)
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Contemporary, Romance

A wildly funny, ridiculously romantic spinoff from best-selling author Melanie Summers…

Princess Arabella of Avonia has spent her first twenty-nine years in an endless loop of high teas, state dinners, and the same five conversations. Every minute of her day is planned by someone else. From what to wear to what to eat, the royal handlers keep her on a tight leash. To make matters worse, they’ve extended their duties to include finding her a suitable husband before she turns thirty. Desperate for an out, she sneakily signs up to co-host a new nature docu-series, starring Will Banks, the man dubbed McHotty of the Wilderness.

Will has ladies all over the globe lining up to meet him until a hot, new adventure show comes on the scene, and his ratings take a nose-dive. Producers decide an emergency change in format is in order. Enter Princess Arabella. The pampered and proper royal is the perfect foil to Will’s rugged outdoorsman.

It’s hate at first sight, but their on-screen loathing makes for great television. Surprisingly, when the cameras stop rolling, these two finally see each other’s good sides. Can these opposites find their forever in each other’s arms, or will their differences be their undoing?

Britton knows the way her heart races whenever Avery enters the room can only mean one thing…

He won’t get in her head again…


Jack Massey broke my heart. He was jealous and possessive. We were all wrong together—too engrossed, too greedy for one another…like we were each other’s fix.

We made no sense. He’s a stuffy, number-cruncher from a wealthy family, and I’m a hot mess from a trailer park. We’d never work long-term.

He says he wants me back. He needs to let the past stay behind us. I’ve worked too hard this year to get over him. I’ve thrown myself into my work with the kids at the resort. I’ve nurtured friendships with my amazing co-workers. I even tried another relationship. Though Jack’s never left my head or my heart.

On my way home to the beach, I didn’t expect to run into Arman, the nicest and sweetest man I’d ever met.

★ And a trillionaire.

And I am not looking for a relationship even from the one man’s kiss that still burned in me.

I don’t get what he still sees in me.

I’m a mess, but you’d never have expected what happened because I absolutely hadn’t.
