Review: Hide and Seek by Eliza Redgold
Hide & Seek - Eliza Redgold

Hide and Seek is set in Broome, Australia, which is an old pearling town on the tropical west coast and part of the dramatically beautiful Kimberley region. You could not have a more romantic setting, and Eliza Redgold's knowledge and love for the region shines through. You can't fake that. Authenticity is compelling.

 

And the love story between Hope and Sullivan, an American hotel developer, has the same drama and honesty. Hope's emotional journey is genuine and makes the incredible setting far more than mere background. You'll be there with her.

 

There's a little pun hidden in the title: Hide and Seek. You'll understand when you read the opening and Hope and Sullivan's first encounter :)  Birds are a big part of the story -- I've never previously read or heard of an ex-girlfriend being described as a canary, but it worked!

 

Enjoy the fun -- and don't blame me if you end up booking a holiday in Broome!

 

 

*Disclaimer: Eliza is my friend, critique partner and fellow Escape Publishing author, which probably makes you think I'm biased. What I am is happy and proud. It's a wonderful feeling to read a friend's book and know it, and she, are destined for success. Smiling and kind of teary at the moment. So happy for Eliza.

 

***

He thought he knew all there was to know about the birds and the bees, but he’s about to get schooled.

A little birdie tells Hope Buchanan that American hotel developer Sullivan O’Dare isn’t just in town for a holiday. As the manager of Hot Tropics Bird Sanctuary, Hope has more than a vested interest in protecting natural habitats.

Hope pulls out all the stops to convince Sullivan to come out with her to the WA bush, with its beautiful trees and unique wildlife. Surely the stunning scenery and a dose of ‘Broome time’ will show him what is at stake. But what is initially about saving the Sanctuary soon becomes about finding a connection. Could it be that Hope has finally found the bird of a feather to form her own flock?

Cover Reveal: Hero Duty

Hero Duty cover

 

I love the gorgeous retro vibe for my new contemporary Aussie romance. It just arrived in my inbox -- Good morning, Thursday :)

 

Hero Duty releases 1 June. It'll be up earlier than that for review on NetGalley or if you're not a fan of NG, once I have some review copies I'll do a shout out for reviewers and you can nab one then. Hero Duty will be ebook only, but available everywhere.

 

The talented cover artist is Dannielle Maitt.

 

 

She can buy anything she wants, except the courage to stand up to her family. That's where he comes in.


Jessica Trove is a billionaire Cinderella, bullied by her family, and terrified of the responsibilities crashing down on her shoulders. She knows what she needs to do – she just needs to find the courage to do it.

That's where Brodie Carlton comes in. Jessica is used to buying anything she wants, and what she wants right now is a hero. She's going to make Brodie Carlton an offer he can't refuse: be her emotional bodyguard, and she'll make him rich. The only question is who will guard their hearts?

New Release: Hide and Seek by Eliza Redgold
Hide & Seek - Eliza Redgold

Eliza is my crit partner. We didn't start working together until last year, which meant she'd sub'd "Hide and Seek" to Escape Publishing before I had a chance to read it. Wah! 

 

I reviewed her debut novel, "Black Diamonds" before we ever met. It showcases one of Eliza's outstanding (no exaggeration) gifts: bringing the setting alive and making you wish you were there. "Black Diamonds" is a story of truffle growing in south west Australia. In "Hide and Seek" she takes us to northern Australia, to Broome, tropical resort, pearl town and all around definition of romance.

 

You'll notice the pun in the title :)

You have to review this book!
Hide & Seek - Eliza Redgold

"Hide and Seek" is set in Broome! If you haven't heard of this gorgeous tropical town in Western Australia with its history of pearling and its camel rides on the beach (see, now you remember! those photos are famous), then check out this link for starters.

 

The title is a play on the fact that there's bird watching in the story, Hide and Seek. 

 

Eliza Redgold is my crit partner. We only started tearing each other's stories apart after she'd had "Hide and Seek" accepted for publication, so I haven't read it yet. I'm waiting till April and intend to enjoy a wonderful coastal escape. I love Eliza's style: easy to read, wonderfully true to the places she sets her stories and romantic.

 

If you're a reviewer, please consider reviewing Eliza's newest book. We plan to lure all the nicest people to visit gorgeous Western Australia :)

 

Review copies available via Netgalley
