The humidity is horrible today, I mean beyond miserable. It’s so icky outside that I don’t think butterflies would even fly on a ‘bug dare,’ at least I haven’t seen one. The moisture would probably weigh their poor wings down!
So, I’m in the AC snuggled in my ratty UGG blanket holding my mug of coffee, reading this amazing #familysaga by @lucindarileyofficial THE BUTTERFLY ROOM . Gifted to me by @1001darknightsbooks @getredpr @netgalley. I wish I was at the beach, believe me, but I can stay home and and read to help keep myself and everyone else safe, because it’s the least we can do.
I absolutely love family saga dramas. I get so consumed in novels with this theme. In my head I am currently sitting on the lemonade porch at a very old friends beach house enjoying the ocean breeze and devouring this book. (But you all know where I really am, once in a while I spray a mist of “ocean breeze” room freshener into the flow of the AC to feed my fantasy a little more).
THE BUTTERFLY ROOM published yesterday 7/21 and is available now, so grab a copy and join me.
So what have you been doing to satisfy your vacation cravings? Whatever it is, I hope you are staying safe and wearing a mask.
About The Butterfly Room
Posy Montague is approaching her seventieth birthday. Still living in her beautiful family home, Admiral House, set in the glorious Suffolk countryside where she spent her own idyllic childhood catching butterflies with her beloved father, and raised her own children, Posy knows she must make an agonizing decision. Despite the memories the house holds, and the exquisite garden she has spent twenty-five years creating, the house is crumbling around her, and Posy knows the time has come to sell it.
Then a face appears from the past – Freddie, her first love, who abandoned her and left her heartbroken fifty years ago. Already struggling to cope with her son Sam’s inept business dealings, and the sudden reappearance of her younger son Nick after ten years in Australia, Posy is reluctant to trust in Freddie’s renewed affection. And unbeknown to Posy, Freddie – and Admiral House – have a devastating secret to reveal…
