Lyrebird Lake – Mia

Hello dear Love Is The Best Medicine Readers and welcome to 2021 from Australia. Waving. It’s Fi McArthur just dropping in.

How amazing is this sunset? The colours are real, seen from my house, during the recent flooding. Such a “wow” moment.

And the fab colour matches my beautiful cover for Mia, which is pure serendipity.

I LOVE this book, I love Mia, who is pregnant, snarky, and has a heart of gold. And Angus, who isn’t used to letting people see how he feels.

It’s a funny book, sweet and yet has a warm and unexpected love scene that Angus and Mia slipped in when I wasn’t looking. 

Not like me to have the door open, but awww, I think you would have been cross with me if I shut them down. 

Fancy a big smile in your day? Buy Mia here.  books2read.com/u/b5ZgAA

Not sure if you know all of my big Penguin Random House books are on audiobook with the wonderful Caroline Lee (who narrates Liane Moriaty’s books here in Oz).

Audios

Well, big news, Montana, the first of my re-written LYREBIRD LAKE SERIES will be available in March with Caroline Lee narrating again. I’m so thrilled. So, if you love audio, like me, the Lake is coming for you to listen to. xx

And lastly, and most exciting, a brand-new Medical Romance from Mills and Boon, out today, offering you a chance to travel to beautiful Barcelona with me. Or with Cleo and Felipe, really.

Have you been to Spain? 

Such a fun place when I was there two years ago, and in this book my Aussie midwife, Cleo, is a fish out of water. And like me, Cleo was fascinated with the amazing Sagrada Familia Church and all that Barcelona has to offer. Including, the dark and dangerous, Dr Felipe.

Buy the book for a trip away, here.  books2read.com/u/mdnPpy

Finally, from my gate to yours, I wish for you and all you love, two legged and more, the gift of a happy, healthy and harmonious New Year as we gallop into 2021.

Lots of love and happy reading xx Fi

Thinking about the holidays?

Enjoy a virtual visit to Oz. South West Rocks is a small seaside town on the north coast of New South Wales. There’s a wonderful white and blue-edged lighthouse where you can stay in the lighthouse keeper’s cottages. From there you can watch and savour the ocean up and down the coast. It’s great to climb the hill up to the beam of light at night, preferably with bubbles in a wine glass with one or two buddies – so everyone gets their own room to write. I’ve been there with authors Amy Andrews, Kelly Hunter, Bronwyn Jameson, Trish Morey, Jaye Ford and Elle Finlay, so you can see I’m a regular and not loath to enticing friends to share the fun. It gets windy up there sometimes as you can tell from the photos.

Below the lighthouse, a long beach allows four-wheel drive vehicles to navigate along the sand to Hat Head about fourteen kilometres away. Hat Head is another amazing beach haven that’s even smaller than the Rocks and I used to stay there just after Christmas in a tiny caravan with my youngest son for a week. My darling husband much prefers his own bed on the farm.

I’ve driven along the beach with my sons, quite a few times and with them we didn’t get bogged – when I drove, well… I still blush. The beach is incredible with white sand and aqua waves where you often see the fish swimming through the clear walls of water before the wave crashes. You can be on the beach with nobody in sight or there could be other vehicles every five hundred metres. Either way all you can hear is the ocean and the waves. There are rocky islets out to sea, one, Fish Rock, a famous Australian scuba diving point where Chris Hemsworth dropped out to recently. As I said, the view is amazing.

Anyway, back to books, and the beach below the lighthouse. This is where Misty saw the future and an unknown man drowning. Or he very soon would be…

Lyrebird Lake is not near South West Rocks, but my midwives originally came from Coffs Harbour and moved away to Queensland to Lyrebird Lake Maternity. Misty was down at the beach to say goodbye to one of her favourite places before she moved north when “it” happened.

I hope you enjoy the second book in the Lyrebird Lake Series, MISTY. She comes out 30th November and there’s still two more books to come in this session. More later in the year.

MIA 30th December and EMMA 30th January.

Have you read MONTANA? She came out 30th October and is my lead midwife. My books will be available on all e-book platforms  https://books2read.com/u/3JjLle or from my website bookstore https://www.fionamcarthurauthor.com/bookstore in print, as they arrive.

Happy reading and welcome to Lyrebird Lake. If I don’t speak to you before then I wish you joyful holidays and a very merry New Year Xx Fi

Release Day – Montana

Dear Love Is The Best Medicine Readers

Happy November to you all and waving from a beautiful morning in Australia. I took this photo just a few minutes ago from the veranda at home and would love to share it with you. No colour added except by Mother nature. It’s going to be a beautiful day.

Today I’d like to talk about series books.

IMG_2540

What do you love about series books? I’m a fan, and I think one of my favourite aspects, apart from the main romance, are the secondary characters we re-meet each time.  Quirky fun people and places that we settle back into each new book in the series. Lyrebird Lake is like that. Perhaps you’ve read a Lyrebird Lake book many years ago. Well we are starting from there, rewritten, expanded, and updated to really allow you to jump into the town and immerse in the people right from the beginning.

Welcome to Lyrebird lake 2020 and onwards. It’s going to be a fun ride and I hope you can join the party. One book a month for the next four months and more to come after that. Montana, Misty, Mia and Emma begin.

So many scenes have given me smiles, tears and laugh out loud moments. I do hope you get the chance to cherish the amazing community of Lyrebird Lake like I do, as well as the journeys my caring midwives take to find the happiness they deserve.

The Midwives of LYREBIRD LAKE

Every day brings a miracle…

It’s time for these midwives to become mothers themselves!

In the first book we meet widowed mum Montana Browne… I’ve loved Montana’s story from the first moment I pictured the sunrise on the mountain

Welcome to…

Montana                                                                                      

Book 1

For midwife Montana, finding out she was pregnant was the best moment of her life. But days later she was widowed.

Nine months have passed, her daughter is born, and Montana knows she needs a fresh start.

Dr Andy Buchanan is building services at Lyrebird Lake Hospital and he wants Montana for the new maternity unit. He can’t get the beautiful new mum out of his mind.

Aren’t the covers gorgeous? I love all the different Lyrebirds. And the river behind in that meme is our local Macleay River at sunrise. I was driving to mind the grandkids. Had to stop and take a photo. I hope your day is filled with beautiful snapshots and smiles, too. Thank for having me drop in. Xx Love Fi
