Just For The Holidays By Sue Moorcroft

Just For The Holidays‘Just For The Holiday’s is the latest book by Sue Moorcroft.

In theory, nothing could be better than a summer spent basking in the French sun. That is, until you add in three teenagers, two love interests, one divorcing couple, and a very unexpected pregnancy. Admittedly, this isn’t exactly the relaxing holiday Leah Beaumont was hoping for – but it’s the one she’s got. With her sister Michele’s family falling apart at the seams, it’s up to Leah to pick up the pieces and try to hold them all together. But with a handsome helicopter pilot staying next door, Leah can’t help but think she might have a few distractions of her own to deal with.

Sue is back with a jolly and warm hearted story set against the warm climate of France.

Leah has decided to go on holidays with her sister, Michelle, her two teenage children and her brother in law. The only reason she is included in the holiday, is to be a buffer as Michelle and Alister are splitting up and Michelle announces that she is pregnant and needs some time with the baby’s father to help sort her head. So Michelle, needs to act as mother on the holiday and look after her children, but it’s just for the holidays.

The story is a warm hearted tale with a pretty cover. Leah is a lovely lead in the story, she has a huge heart and even though it frustrates her, she would do anything for her sister even if it is against her better judgement. She loves her niece and nephew dearly and enjoys nothing more than rolling up her sleeves and cooking with the pair of them. With caring for two boisterous teenagers and a suddenly injured Alister, Leah becomes slightly distracted with her handsome next door neighbour Ronan and his EMO son, Jordan.

After a series of failed relationships behind her, she’s wary of starting something new but with his Irish charm and masculinity, Leah is drawn to Ronan and decides that maybe she could have a relationship, but like her role as a mother, her relationship could just for the holidays.

The story is primarily seen through the eyes of Leah but there is also the inclusion of Ronan’s perspective as he deals with his attraction towards Leah and also Jordan, his son’s perspective adds a sweet and innocent perspective to the summer story.

A charming, poignant story and filled with wonderful, energetic characters. This book is a story about starting over, new beginnings and young love, ‘Just For The Holidays’ is the perfect summer holiday book

You can buy Just for the Holidays from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.

Book Tour – Just For The Holidays By Sue Moorcroft

Just For The HolidaysToday on the book tour for Sue Moorcroft’s, ‘Just For The Holidays’, Sue tells us ten ways to make holidays more bearable.

Ten ways to make coming home from your holiday bearable.
No matter how fantastic your holiday, you’ll face the inevitable flatness of returning to reality. It may involve chores that have stacked up in your absence or return-to-work blues. (Or both.) They only sully the memory of your holiday and make you wonder whether it was worth the aggro. It was worth it because holidays allow you to decompress, try new things, have fun and gain a lot of weight. Here are a few ideas that might ease the pain.

1. Before you go away, make an online grocery order for an appropriate date/time upon your return. It saves you a) having to think about something as mundane as a shopping list when your head is still full of fun stuff b) having to trek around the supermarket.

2. Use a laundry service for that first huge wash when everyone tips out their suitcases. I was surprised how reasonable it can be – less than a modest meal out for, say, four people. Choose one that does the ironing too.

3. Consider doing a labour swap with a friend. While you’re away they cut your lawn/feed your cat/water your plants – and when they’re away you do theirs.

4. Book an extra day’s holiday so you don’t have to return to work the very day after you’ve travelled home. It gives you one last lie in and an opportunity to get over it if you’ve had a long/hassled trip.

5. Don’t get on the scales for at least a fortnight after you return. There’s no point making yourself feel bad about a few extra pounds. Returning to your usual routine will take care of some of them naturally. (Probably. Or possibly, anyway.)

6. This is a really boring one – get anything you can up to date before you go. Coming back to those five loads of washing you conveniently forgot or that bulging inbox you ignored is just not worth the stress. Particularly if you’re going to ignore points 1-4.

7. Show off your suntan and all your holiday pix to your friends.

8. Plan something good to coincide with your homecoming. I once returned to a completed extension to the house and enjoying that took all the pain out of my return.

9. Have a little coming-home pamper session, either self-adminstered or at the salon.

10. Book another holiday.

The Christmas Promise By Sue Moorcroft

The Christmas Promise‘The Christmas Promise’ is the latest book by Sue Moorcroft.

On a snowy December evening, Sam Jermyn steps into the life of bespoke hat maker Ava Blissham. Sparks fly, and not necessarily the good ones. When Sam commissions Ava to make a hat for someone special to him she makes a promise that will change her life. She just doesn’t know it yet. Ava needs this job – she’s struggling to make ends meet, her ex-boyfriend is a bully, and she’s desperate for distraction because no one dreads Christmas like Ava does. But soon Ava finds herself reluctantly needing something from Sam. He’s quick to help, but she’s in for a nasty shock… Will she be able to keep her promise? And if she does, might this be the Christmas her dreams come true?

It might be two months until Christmas, but it’s never too early to curl up with a festive book, particularly when the weather has turned colder and the nights are becoming darker earlier.

This story is seen through the perspective of Ava and Sam, who meet one night on a night out with mutual friends. The two of them are drawn to each other but Ava finds herself drawing away as her best friend Izz likes Sam.

Sam finds Ava fascinating and mysterious with her creative abilities to create amazing hats from nothing and loves her huge heart as she creates the perfect hat for his unwell mother. Whilst Ava admires Sam with his huge heart and quiet determination.

The story flows at a sweet and tender pace as the pair of them embark on a new relationship, getting to know each other, as Ava helps Sam deal with his mothers illness and Sam helps Ava create awareness for her milliner business, by setting up events and clients for her. I thought Ava and Sam made for a delightful couple, both kind and generous, they look out for one another as they are going through difficult times leading up to Christmas.

Ava is an interesting character, with her huge personality, she’s a proud woman and refuses to take financial handouts when her funds are low, instead she works hard and takes on more challenging projects.

The story is prominently a love story, but there are also the inclusion of more serious issues in the Christmas tale, such as cancer as well as online abuse, when Ava finds herself victim to an ex boyfriend who has photographs of her from their time together, he uses these photographs as leverage but Ava wants to put that part of her life behind her and is scared that the images will be made public.

‘The Christmas Promise’ is a sweetly written story that made for warmhearted reading, a story of love, life and new beginnings, this poignant tale set against the backdrop of Christmas will have you giggling and crying throughout.

You can buy The Christmas Promise from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
