Release day: The Goodbye Ride

23 May 2013

Today is the official release of The Goodbye Ride by Lily Malone (ebook). Here’s the blurb:

The Goodbye RideOlivia Murphy is a woman on a mission. Gracing the front lawn of a house in her Adelaide Hills hometown sits the classic Ducati motorbike that once belonged to her brother. There’s a For Sale sign by the tyre.

Liv wants to buy the precious bike and bring it back into her family, and she wants the ink dry on the paperwork before the approaching holiday weekend. Tourist-mecca Hahndorf doubles in size on long weekends—and most visitors have far fatter wallets than hers.

One person stands in her way.

Owen Carson likes rare and beautiful things and he has the Ducati in his sights. Then he meets Liv, and finds his heart captured by beauty of a far different kind.

What will Olivia do to make the Ducati hers? And can Owen convince Liv that he is after far more than a holiday fling?

Lily dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

The Goodbye Ride was inspired by a real-life event during 2012. One day, out driving in the Adelaide Hills, my husband hit the brakes on our car and almost gave me whiplash… He stopped opposite this red Ducati motorbike for sale on a front lawn, and breathed to me (perhaps in the same way I might gasp that I’d just spotted Brad Pitt) “that’s a 650 Pantah…” Well, the story idea hit me straight away. What would happen if there was a girl walking up the street intent on buying that bike, and a hunky looking bloke (like my husband – LOL) raced across the road to snap that ‘collector’s item’ out of her hands. The Goodbye Ride is free for five days from release day on Amazon. If you’re like me, you’ll love a free read! Please check it out.

You can find out more about this book at Lily’s website or buy it from Amazon.
