- A Little Bit of Madness by Sheryl Browne - Cover Reveal
Saturday, 2 February 2013
I am very excited to be part of the blog tour for A LITTLE BIT OF MADNESS, the wonderful new book by Sheryl Browne. I have been lucky enough to have read the book and it is amazing! You can read the review here on 14th February when the book is officially released. But, in the meantime, you can take part in the book tour questions and have a peek at the fantastic cover for the book.
Every stop of the tour has posed a different question. So here's our question and answer from both myself and Sheryl:
What is the most romantic and grandest gesture someone has ever done for you?
SHERYL: Ok, it might not seem grand, but it was certainly romantic – sort of. My man planted a rose tree outside the kitchen window, bearing the peach coloured roses my mum loved. Just did it! Awww. Was beautiful. Was… I pruned it! Waaaaah. Can I help it if my fingers are not green?
JB: One Christmas Eve hubs handed me a CD that he had made for me as he always did. It was full of romantic songs. He asked me to look carefully at the song titles. As I read down the titles I realised that when you put together the first letter of each song title it spelt out WILL YOU MARRY ME? He then got down on one knee and produced a ring and proposed! Of course I said yes!
Celia Summers loves her job as an art therapist at The Harbour Rest Home, even if her partner, Martin, is disparaging of her efforts.
Martin, a solicitor, made speculative investments and needs to get his hands on his mother’s assets, her home, Charlton Hall, to bail himself out of debt. In order to sell the house, he has to get Rosemary re-housed at The Harbour Rest Home and tries to get Celia on his side with a fabrication of lies.
Meanwhile, Celia fights for gallery space for her charges’ artwork, and to keep The Harbour from being closed.
Police Constable Alex Burrows, son of Colonel Burrows, comes to her rescue when she crashes her car. Alex turns out to be considerate and caring with a witty, wicked, sense of humour, which makes Celia laugh, though when she learns of the circumstances surrounding his the loss of his wife, she wants to cry. She ignores his reputation as a womaniser. His trying to influence his father’s Will though, she can’t. Alex, who little by little has stolen her heart, appears to be just as much a liar as Martin.
Despite all efforts, The Harbour is doomed to closure. Celia decides to take Rosemary home and forestall Martin’s plan to sell Charlton Hall. Celia is soon joined by the rest of her elderly independents, who rally together to stop Martin evicting them. Colonel Burrows is ready to thrash the enemy to death with his walking stick when his son arrives in his uniform. Alex explains that Colonel Burrows is the buyer of Charlton Hall and finally does what he’s been trying to do for ages: ask Celia to marry him.
