Every Time A Bell Rings by Carmel Harrington

Release Date: 19th November 2015
Publisher: Harper Impulse
Genres: Contemporary Fiction / Chick Lit /Romance

I was so lucky to receive an invite from the lovely Carmel Harrington to attend her book launch for Every Time a Bell Rings. The event took place in the Riverbank Hotel in Wexford on 21st November and was an amazing experience! Thank you Carmel for being such a wonderful hostess. Thank you also to two lovely ladies for sharing their table with me! 

Elizabeth Catstree, Fidelma Maher and me!

The guests at the event were treated to lovely mulled wine which totally went down a treat. I might have had more than one glass. Then throughout the course of the evening we were treated to lovely songs from some great singers. Look out for a very talented young lady called Alannah Simmonson. She sang a wonderful song called FOR YOU and if I get a chance of sharing it with you I will.  She is going to be the next big thing! You heard it here first! What a voice! As if all that wasn't enough there was a book reading from Carmel and then a Q & A session with author Hazel Gaynor and Carmel's lovely daddy sneaking her a brandy halfway through!  Check out this fantastic video montage of the evening and if you look closely I'm in it a few times! 

‘Beautiful and uplifting…Written with such heart it warms the soul’ – Claudia Carroll, bestselling author of ‘Meet Me in Manhattan’
‘A compelling, magical, festive cracker of a book’ – Alexandra Brown, bestselling author of ‘The Great Village Show’
An angel gets its wings…

Belle has taken all the Christmas decorations down. This year they won’t be celebrating. As foster parents, Belle and Jim have given many children the chance of a happier start in life. They’ve loved them as if they were their own. They shouldn’t have favourites but little Lauren has touched their hearts. And now her mother is well enough to take her back and Belle can’t bear the loss.
Hence, Christmas is cancelled.

So when Jim crashes his car one icy December night, after an argument about Lauren, Belle can only blame herself. Everything she loves is lost. And Belle finds herself standing on The Ha’Penny Bridge wishing she had never been born. But what happens to a Christmas wish when an angel is listening…
Will Belle realise, before it’s too late, that her life is the most wonderful life of all? Inspired by the timeless tale of beloved Christmas movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, Carmel Harrington’s next book tells the story of Belle, a young woman and foster carer from Dublin who faces the hardest decision of her life this Christmas on The Ha’Penny Bridge.

Full of Irish charm, magic, and the warmth of the festive season this is an emotional, heartwarming story that will stay with you long after you’ve reached ‘The End’. Perfect for fans of Cecelia Ahern & Jojo Moyes.

Carmel is the bestselling author of The Life You Left & Beyond Grace’s Rainbow, voted Romantic eBook of the Year 2013.

The lovely Carmel and a very happy me!
