Breakfast at Darcy's Blog Tour
Today, I am proud to welcome Ali McNamara to my blog as part of the Breakfast at Darcy's blog tour. Ali joins me to talk about her second novel:
Breakfast at Darcy’s is about a girl called Darcy who finds out at a funeral she’s the sole beneficiary of her Aunt’s wealthy estate. But the terms of her Aunt’s will state before Darcy can inherit any of her money she must go and live on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland for a whole year, and set up a new community of people to live there with her.
City girl, Darcy doesn’t find the switch from high-heeled boots to wellington boots an easy one, or for that matter any of the other many changes that the island of Tara has in store for her…
‘Breakfast at Darcy’s’, like my first novel, ‘From Notting Hill with Love…Actually’ features a heroine searching for a new direction in her life, but until she is forced to move to a different area she doesn't quite know where that change is going to come from. But that’s where the similarity between the two books ends.
This time instead of using films as a theme, I've taken the Celtic setting of the fictional island of Tara and interweaved some magic and mysticism into the story. With it’s many tales of legends and mythology Ireland is a fantastic place to set a novel, and I hope this, along with my usual mix of humour and romance makes ‘Breakfast at Darcy’s’ a fun story that my readers will enjoy!
Thank you for joining me today Ali and I will be reviewing Breakfast at Darcy's soon on my blog.
