Release day: Cross Stitch
Today is the official release of Cross Stitch by Amanda James (ebook, Choc Lit Publishing). Here’s the blurb:
It should be the happiest day of her life. Despite past heartache, Sarah Yates is finally marrying her true love, John Needler.
But Sarah and John can’t pretend they’re an ordinary couple. They’re time travellers and where time travel is involved, nothing runs smoothly. One minute Sarah is saying her vows and the next she is hurtled back in time to a country that is on the cusp of war, and into the company of the bad-tempered Veronica Ratchet.
Newly-wedded bliss is certainly not on the cards for Sarah as events see her travelling from the British punk era to 1950s America. And even when she returns home she can’t escape Veronica.
But when the past and the present collide, that’s when the real problems start …
Amanda dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
In the opening pages of Cross Stitch, the sequel to A Stitch in Time, we find Sarah Yates at the altar at last ready to marry her true love and Time Needle, John. Because of John, in the prequel, Sarah had been whisked away to 1913 London and the suffragette movement, 1940 Sheffield during the Blitz, 1876 Kansas to a grasshopper plague and finally to 1928 London and possibly the biggest medical discovery of the modern world. So … Sarah figures she’s due some normality at last and is overjoyed that it is her wedding day. However, Sarah and normality don’t often spend much time together, and on that day of all days she is once again hurled back in time to 1939. And if this isn’t enough, once there, she gets entangled with a very disagreeable creature – Veronica Ratchet, an ‘old school’ school teacher who seems extremely reluctant to disentangle herself from Sarah’s life. The meeting with Ratchet leads to more adventures, thrills and spills than Sarah can shake a stick at. It is exactly what she doesn’t want and about as far away from normal as you can get. No, actually … Ratchet and the 1970s punk rock era is just that bit further. I so enjoyed writing this book, and I hope you will enjoy reading it. 🙂
