You might think that picking the Number 1 Best Seller on Amazon's Free list doesn't take much imagination .... but, you would be wrong, really you would. I initially looked at it, rejected it for just that reason, but gravitated back there. Reason: yesterday's pick was a bit heavy and I just fancied something with more light than shade as it where.
In case you were wondering ......... yes, I do read my own selections, although, I'm woefully behind (currently there's a medium hillock of books, which from here on in I will be referring to as my "slush" pile, that have been sent to me by authors' and publishers' to read and review in both actual to goodness books and ebooks. I'm not complaining, keep them coming, as I will literally read the back of a packet if I don't have a book to hand. I love books pure and simple, always have and always will.
Any how back to the matter in hand, my light and frothy selection for today:
Three women, one bar and three different reasons for buying it. Single mother Sarah needs a home for her children; Claire's an ambitious business woman. For wealthy Gaynor, Greens Wine Bar is just one more amusement. Or is it?
On the surface, Gaynor has it all - money, looks, a beautiful home in the picturesque seaside town of Broadstairs, and Victor - her generous, successful husband.
But while Sarah longs for love and Claire is making money, Gaynor wants answers. Why is Victor behaving strangely and who does he see on his frequent trips away? What's behind the threatening phone-calls?
As the bar takes off, Gaynor's life starts to fall apart. Into her turmoil comes Sam - strong and silent with a hidden past. Theirs is an unlikely friendship but then nobody is quite what they seem in this tale of love, loss and betrayal set against the middle-class dream of owning a wine bar. As Gaynor's confusion grows, events unfold that will change all of their lives forever.

By the way, I've had a couple of comments from friends of mine recently that read the blog, that they've missed out on the free download. It happens to me sometimes too, if I decide on a certain book and it goes off free listing ... very frustrating I know. Get it when I mention it, I check before I post to the blog, or you may miss out. What's the worse thing that could happen, they're free ..... if you don't like it, delete it off the Kindle again. Did that sound condescending? It didn't mean to be, I always tell it the way it is. What I'm trying to say, is get it or risk losing it basically, take a chance on a book, new author or different genre as the results can be quite surprising.
This has been a far wordier chat with you all than I expected .... I do go on sometimes ....... it might just be that I'm putting off the daunting prospect of sitting through the Headmaster's speech at Lou's Prizegiving Lunch today .... like the curates egg: yay, lunch ..... not so yay, he apparently managed a 2 hour speech last year!
On Amazon today my rating is (<) to 4,522. I suppose that I'm still heading in the right direction, but very slowly now. I would love to get to the top 1,000 Reviewers' some day ....... so if you find the Daily Kindle Downloads info useful please go over to my Reviews on Amazon and leave me some positive feedback on some of my reviews (which helps my rating, and will earn you my grateful thanks).Hugs
