Connect Five Friday – New-To-Me Authors


It’s time once again for Connect Five Friday,  hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.


I have read some wonderful novels already these past few weeks, some by favourite authors (Sarah Morgan, Paula Brackston) as well as some authors new to me.

Here are 5 new-to-me authors, with books I really enjoyed (the blurb is from Goodreads):

A Match Made in Ireland by Michele Brouder (read this lovely contemporary romance on St. Patrick’s Day)

“Ruth Davenport writes about romance and happily ever after. But not from experience. After a heartbreaking rejection, she decides a change of scenery is needed. On a whim, she thinks Ireland is the place to go to write her next book. But when she arrives, everything that can go wrong, does. In the middle of the night, she lands on the doorstep of an Irish pub in the middle of nowhere belonging to an enigmatic Irishman.”

Wrong Text, Right Love by Claudia Burgoa 

“Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa presents an engaging love story full of mistaken identity, drunk texts, and hysterical mishaps

When We Were Sisters by Emilie Richards

“As children in foster care, Cecilia and Robin vowed they would be the sisters each had never had. Now superstar singer-songwriter Cecilia lives life on the edge, but when Robin is nearly killed in an accident, Cecilia drops everything to be with her.”

Any Rogue Will Do by Bethany Bennett. A most enjoyable historical romance.

“For exactly one season, Lady Charlotte Wentworth played the biddable female the ton expected―and all it got her was society’s mockery and derision. Now she’s determined to be in charge of her own future. So when an unwanted suitor tries to manipulate her into an engagement, she has a plan. He can’t claim to be her fiancé if she’s engaged to someone else. Even if it means asking for help from the last man she would ever marry.”



children 34728667

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. I finally read this at the end of last month and looking forward to reading the whole of this intriguing fantasy series.

  1. They are all new to me except one. Emilie Richards is one of my top favourite authors. Love all her books, she has some great series. The Goddesses Anonymous and the Shenandoah series are just awesome.
