Belonging has won a Chill With A Book award! How exciting is that?!

The Chill with a Book awards are a long running prize which is awarded to indie published books of high standard. The readers assess each book against a set of criteria like:

  • Were the characters strong and engaging?
  • Was the book well written?
  • Did the story have you turning pages to find out what happened next?
  • Was the ending satisfying?
  • Would you recommend this book to someone who reads this sort of book?

Eight readers read Belonging as part of the judging and they must have liked what they read because they awarded it a Premier award. Which means I get a badge and everything!

Here’s a few of the comments from the readers

“I liked everything about this book. I’ve already recommended it to a friend at work.”

It was a lovely, relaxing, easy read.”

I truly enjoyed this gem of a book.”

Book cover for Belonging small town romance

Belonging went on tour with the fabulous crew from Rachel’s Random Resources. After a brilliant week, there are now lots of reviews. This book is a little darker than my usual books, so I was a bit worried about how it would be received. I needn’t have worried. Here are just some of the reviews from the tour. The words ’emotional’ and ‘heartwarming’ come up a lot:

“This is a quick read, but really packs an emotional punch.” The Book Review 

“It is an emotive, contemporary family drama and romance, with a lovely ending to leave you with a smile on your face.” “I enjoyed it so much that I went to look at other books by this author “ Splashes Into Books
