Paige Toon's book launch and giveaway for signed copies of 3 of her books

Over the last year I've been lucky enough to have been invited to some great publishing events but most of them I normally cannot go to due to work committments.  So when I received the invite to go to the book launch for Paige Toon's tenth novel The Sun in her Eyes I knew this was one that I had to attend no matter what so just had to cancel all other arrangements so that I could go.

And it was so worth the 3 hours in train journeys to and from London (perfect reading time) as it was a fantastic evening where I had the chance to chat to Paige, enjoy a couple of glasses of The Sun in Her Eyes cocktail (it tasted as good as it looked), meet up with a few fellow bloggers and chat to some other fabulous authors who were there as well.

Sadly I didn't take too many photos as the room did get a little crowded and I'm a short arse so you'll need to squint in the last photo which was of Paige in distance giving a speech.


When I knew I was going to be able to attend the book launch I decided to buy three of Paige's books to get signed by her for giveaway prizes so three lucky followers will each receive one of the following, One Perfect Summer, The Longest Holiday or her YA book The Accidental Life of Jessie Jefferson.  

Ever wondered what happened to your first love?

Alice is 18 and about to start university while Joe's life is seemingly going nowhere. A Dorset summer, a chance meeting, and the two of them fall into step as if they have known each other forever. 

But their idyll is shattered, suddenly, unexpectedly. Alice heads off to Cambridge and slowly picks up the pieces of her broken heart. Joe is gone; she cannot find him. When she catches the attention of Lukas - gorgeous, gifted, rich boy Lukas - she is carried along by his charm, swept up in his ambitious plans for a future together. 

Years later, at just the wrong time, Joe is back, but out of reach in a way that Alice could never have imagined. Life has moved on, the divide between them is now so great. 

Surely it is far too late to relive those perfect summer days of long ago?


'Don't wait for the storm to pass; learn to dance in the rain…' 

Laura has been married to the man of her dreams for seven months. But a week before the wedding, Matthew made a terrible mistake. 

Escaping the humiliation that is now her marriage, Laura is whisked off to Florida's Key West by her best friend Marty. A carefree holiday full of cocktails and fun, surrounded by gorgeous, tanned men, is exactly what the doctor ordered. 

Distraction comes in the form of sexy Cuban scuba diver Leo. Laura's instant attraction to him knocks her flying, and she falls hard. 

As the end of the holiday approaches, Laura doesn't want to go home. Is it time to face the music? Or is there more to Key West than a holiday romance?


Meet Jessie, small-town girl turned wild-child...

When her mum dies, Jessie thinks any hope of finding her real dad is gone. As she goes off the rails, her sepdad makes a shocking announcement; her father is legendary rock star and former hell-raiser, Johny Jefferson. Now the daughter of a superstar, Jessie is suddenly sucked into the LA lifestyle - paparazzi, parties and hot guitar-wielding boys included!

But Jessie's still reeling from her mother's death and the truth about Johnny.  Can he live up to her expectations and help her move on? One thing's for sure, Jessie's tiny little world has just got a whole lot bigger..
