Sunday Story

His Brand Of Beautiful
Lily Malone is one of my regular readers and commenters and she has her first book out this month and His Brand Of Beautiful is beautiful. Christina Clay is a likeable heroine, who is not your typical rich girl. She has a wicked sense of humour and great timing. Tate Newell also has a good sense of humour, which is just as well because he's often the brunt of hers. He assumes she's the rich girl of his mind, without taking the time to know her, and this leads him into all sorts of scrapes.

I thought this was a fun read. I loved Lily's word choices and her voice. The main project that brings Tate and Christina together is that she wants him to develop a wine brand for her. And this is the part I loved. I adored the wine brand. The campaign was fun. I could see the labels in my head. I wanted to go buy a few bottles and enjoy good wine. This is a book that made me want to read it out loud to friends, laughing, over a few glasses of red!

If you're looking for a nice read, and don't mind a giggle and a wine, you can't go by His Brand Of Beautiful.

Hope you enjoy it!

  4. Hello Cate
    I am back in the connected computer world. I have been going nutso with hubby's smartphone for a week since we left my sister's place. I digress!
    I knew there was a reason your blog was the first place I visited having come home from work and finding the COMPUTER IS WORKING!!! It was a toss up with you and Jenn McLeod but I had missed Phallic Friday and I just HAD to come and see what you got up to last week... Menages!! And then lo and behold, you've written about HBOB. You are just the BEST Ms Ellink. Thank you so much. Where is your 'share' button off your blog? I'd love to share your review with the world! Maybe I will have to link to it instead.

    1. Hey Lily,
      Glad you're back and connected!!

      Oh, my, to be ahead of Jenn J...what a feat :) And all because of the phallic thing! LOL Lucky I have a juicy menage one for you... or not so juicy really!

      I have struggled with that share button. It won't share. It comes on and then tells me it won't work on secure blogs or some guff. Is it because of my over 18s thing? That's what I've put it down to. No idea though. Sorry I can't make your life easy!
