Her Hometown Redemption Blog Tour with Rachel Brimble

Hi and welcome to Kooks Nook.

Its been a while since I last posted, so I apologise profusely. 

I have the pleasure to be part of a street team for a very talented English author, Rachel Brimble who writes for the Harlequin Superromance line.  I thoroughly recommend these longer romances, especially during the autumn and winter months, just as there's a nip in the air.  These entice the reader to curl up on a couch under a snuggly blanket, mug of tea and a plateful of biscuits.  Psst...when the kids are at school is a great time, take it from me.

Anyhoo, enough gassing from me, as I'll hand over to Rachel.



Her Hometown Redemption

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: Sept 1st 2015

Publisher:  Harlequin Superromance


She's back to right her wrongs.


When Tanya Todd returns to Templeton Cove, she knows better than to expect a warm welcome. She burned a few bridges on her way out of town, and making amends won't be easy. First on her list is the man whose heart she carelessly shattered, Liam Browne. 


Seeing the successful criminal lawyer after all these years, Tanya is interested in more than just Liam's forgiveness. As they work together to bring the man who hurt her sister to justice, the attraction between them sizzles. Suddenly Tanya's second chance could include a future with Liam…if she can prove she's changed. 






I'm always thrilled to read a Superromance by an English author, especially when its the latest in a series. I adore The Templeton Cove books and for me each one is a real treat.

I won't give out any plotlines because each reader finds something unique as they read. The storyline flows effortlessly drawing the reader in from the first chapter. Hint...I'd have a pot of tea handy because I could NOT put this down. This is a perfectly balanced book, and I thoroughly enjoyed it and sad that it ended, which is what a great book should be.

Liam and Tanya's romance was uplifting yet poignant in parts. Rachel's characters are well rounded and three-dimensional so that the reader does get a chance to connect and relate to them.

Brilliantly written, and thanks to Brook Cottage Books for the ARC and including me on the tour.

  1. Oh, wow! Thank you, Manda - SO thrilled you enjoyed Liam & Tanya's story so much - I've just received a contract for 3 more Templeton Cove stories which is fabulous because I'm not ready to leave the Cove just yet ;)

  2. I think the cover is adorable :) Loved A Man Like Him

    1. Hi, Liz! It seems like an age since I wrote A Man Like Him and I had no idea the book would lead to more & more books set in the Cove. A Man Like Him will always be special to me because it was inspired by me & my family being rescued in the 2010 French floods :)
