Recently I’ve seen a few of my blogging contemporaries post lists of their favourite books of 2017. So this year I thought as I hit my target of 60 book on Goodreads I would compile my own list. These choices are not set out in any particular order, I loved them all.
Pam Howes Mersey Trilogy
Three books – one choice – they were so good I had to have them all! Oh and tissues definitely required!
Linn B Halton Secrets of the Villa Rosso – a beautifully written bitter-sweet story
The Sewing Machine by Natalie Fergie – a great debut novel and oh! that cover
Girl in the Castle by Lizzie Lamb – Lizzie always delivers great romances and the hottest of heroes
White Lies by Ellie Holmes – A well woven tale of love, betrayal and deceit
The Man in the Needlecord Jacket by Linda MacDonald – Manipulative, dissolute Coll (the man of the title) was a love to hate character who made this a totally compelling read.
The Birthday Girl by Sue Fortin – gripping from start to finish and probably her best so far
Deadly Intent by Sheryl Browne – Sheryl’s novels just keep getting better and better
Only One Woman by Christina Jones and Jane Risdon – One guy, two girls and a wannabe rock band – a great sixties nostalgia trip written by two ladies who know the music business well
The Path Keeper by N J Simmonds – another debut novel. A YA read and yet much, much more. Absolutely loved it!

Reading matter[s] at any time!
Thanks for including GIRL IN THE CASTLE as one of your Top 10 books in 2017, Jo. I am highly honoured to be chosen. I love what you said about my ‘hot heroes’. Just working on another one (set in the USA this time) to publish in the summer. Have a great holiday and more power to all our writing elbows.
