Release day: How I Wonder What You Are
Todays is the official release of How I Wonder What You are by Jane Lovering (paperback, Choc Lit Publishing). Here’s the blurb:
It’s been over eighteen months since Molly Gilchrist has had a man (as her best friend, Caro, is so fond of reminding her) so when she as good as stumbles upon one on the moors one bitterly cold morning, it seems like the Universe is having a laugh at her expense.
But Phinn Baxter (that’s Doctor Phinneas Baxter) is no common drunkard, as Molly is soon to discover; with a PhD in astrophysics and a tortured past that is a match for Molly’s own disastrous love life.
Finding mysterious men on the moors isn’t the weirdest thing Molly has to contend with, however. There’s also those strange lights she keeps seeing in the sky. The ones she’s only started seeing since meeting Phinn …
Jane dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
What’s a girl to do when she’s out riding on the Yorkshire Moors and practically falls over a naked and unconscious man? Well, if you’re Molly Gilchrist, deserted fiancée and currently averse to the entire XY chromosome, you are severely tempted to keep on riding … But it’s March and it’s cold and he really doesn’t have any clothes on, so throwing him across your horse and taking him back to your home to recover is the only practical thing to do. But when he comes round and says he’s an astrophysicist called Doctor Phinneas Baxter, and you discover that he’s alternating between Prozac and vodka to keep afloat. Well … you might have second thoughts. But Phinn, it turns out, has also seen those mysterious lights in the sky, the ones that you thought only you could see. And, as you uncover his secrets, you might just find out the reasons for his phobia of deep water, why his friend Link has suddenly turned up and just what those lights are really all about … And although I’ve ridden over the moors many a time, I’ve yet to meet a naked man! Despite this, the North York Moors are a very atmospheric place, and setting my story here meant that I could use the best, and worst, that they have to offer–from snow to gales and from quiet sunshine to running flood. All of which play important parts in the book …
