Down here in southern Australia, August is an odd month. We’re still in the grip of winter on most days but then we get a warm sunny day to remind us winter isn’t forever and then it’s gone again! But what those warm days do is to prompt the plants. My garden is almost devoid of color, all we’ve had for weeks are the white of snow drops, but the pink blossom is starting, the camellias are dripping and the azaleas are budding.
Soon the bulbs will flower and the garden will be filled with color again. I LOVE spring although am always happy to have a late one if it means the snow sticks on the mountains a bit longer.
Your medical romance authors write a variety of different books. Today, two of our authors have new books out! Anne Fraser, writing as Emma Fraser has an historical medical romance out on Wednesday And I’ve got Picture Perfect Wedding out today, Monday! Aren’t the covers of these books awesome and evocative of the type of book they are?
What makes me smile about Anne/Emma’s book is that my student nurse’s uniform in 1980 didn’t look a lot different from that! My cap was modern but I had that starched apron and collar that scratched my neck! I used to have to sprinkle water on the back of it to soften it so I didn’t get a rash! Anyone else ever have to wear something like that?
The blurb for When the Dawn Breaks is intriguing and says,
Skye, 1903. Jessie, the young daughter of a local midwife, is determined to become a nurse one day, but family loss and heartache jeopardise her dreams. Isabel, the doctor’s daughter, is planning to follow in her father’s footsteps – even though medicine is not considered a fitting career for a woman. And then there’s Archie, Jessie’s older brother, whom Isabel just can’t stay away from.
Taking in Skye and Edinburgh, France and Serbia, When the Dawn Breaks is a sweeping wartime story of two determined women and the dark secret that will bind them forever . . .
It’s available from Amazon UK & The Book Depository and UK bookshops.
My novel, Picture Perfect Wedding, is book two in my Wedding Fever trilogy. I confess there isn’t a lot of medical content in this book BUT there is a birth scene…of a calf! It’s my dairy farm book with a sexy farmer and a geographically challenged photographer. I can guarantee it will make you laugh and smile. Set in rural Wisconsin, it’s full of cute dogs, cows and sunflowers and a steal at $2 You can track it down at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Booktopia, and all ebook stores.
