Talking with author Isobel Reed:

Can you describe your dream home?

I’d love to live by the sea. I’d want an ocean view and to be able to walk to the beach from my house. Hell, if it were my dream house, I’d throw in a private beach too. The house itself doesn’t need to be too big, maybe three or four bedrooms with some good views. Modern, minimalist design, mostly because I hate clutter and I’m a massive clean freak… but a lazy one. Less stuff means less dusting.

If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?

I can only make two really good meals. A vegetarian roast dinner with honey roasted vegetables, potatoes, Yorkshire puddings (an English thing!) and stuffing. Or I can make vegetarian carbonara which is pretty good too. If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m a vegetarian so you’d be out of luck if you wanted me to make you any meat because I wouldn’t have the first clue what to do.

Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.

I haven’t received a physical letter or even an email because I don’t have a ‘Contact me’ form on my website. But I have had some really lovely messages on social media about my work. One of the nicest being a woman who said she’d been smiling all day after finishing my book. Comments like that give me a reason to smile all day too.  

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?

Somewhere there are some sexy cowboys, for research purposes only of course.

Who designed the book cover for the book you are touring?

Fantasia Frog Designs did my book cover for Love Tools and I love it. Not just because it has a half-naked man on it either. I think the fun, colorful nature of the design is a great reflection of the story inside.



Love Tools: Bluestone Series Book One

by Isobel Reed

GENRE: Contemporary Romance


 

What happens when the king of casual meets the queen of picking the wrong men?

Lily is running. From a dead-end job, a neurotic mother and all the losers she dared to date. Moving halfway across the world to Bluestone County seemed like a good idea at the time. So did reopening her estranged father’s hardware store. But now she isn’t so sure.

Small town living has its perks though. Wide-open space, clean air, and sexy cowboys. Well, one sexy cowboy. Jake. Who also just so happens to be the new bane of her existence. At least when he’s not talking, she can admire the view.

Jake is the king of casual. The love of his life has always been his ranch, and that was fine with him. He never really saw the point in long-term. But all that changes when a mouthy, blonde sasses him into oblivion. He should have known she’d be trouble as soon as he laid eyes on her. Now it’s too late. She’s all he can think about. All he has to do is convince her that he’s finally the right man.

Excerpt One: 

 

Lily stared at the boarded-up windows and took a deep breath. There was no turning back now. Pulling the keys from her handbag, she unlocked the door and followed the creaking sound of the floorboards into the dimly lit store.

 

To her surprise the shelves were still stocked and brimming with power tools, each item covered in a layer of dust that had already started to make its way up her nostrils.

 

“What the hell are you doing here Lily?” she muttered to herself as she ran her fingers across the counter.

 

To get this place up and running, it was going to be more work than she ever imagined. She just hoped the apartment upstairs was in better condition.

 

After exploring the shop floor, she went to find out. She followed the beige hallway into the living room, taking a seat on the squeaky leather sofa and looking around. The space was depressing. Habitable but depressing nonetheless.

 

How could he have lived here for so long, and it still feel so empty?

 

Furniture was sparse, and other than the chair she sat in, the only other items that remained were a flatscreen TV, a scratched wooden coffee table and a small shelving unit scattered with a few books and a couple of picture frames.

 

She looked over at the kitchen adjoining the living room and noticed some basic appliances. It felt strange to be in his space. His home. Surrounded by his things. Was there a right way to feel?
