Snippet from Tangled Web of Love


Get the wine from the fridge, because boy are you going to need it.

 


Gently she opened the door. The cottage seemed bizarrely quiet as she crept down the stairs. Sighing in relief that nobody was there, she headed for the living room. Finding her shoes and bag where she had left them, she was about to turn and walk away when she saw Paul’s abandoned shirt on the back of the couch. Sadie picked up the shirt, instantly smelling her perfume mingled with Paul’s aftershave. She swallowed hard. Her cheeks burning, she dropped the shirt like a red-hot poker. It was covered in lipstick. Her lipstick.

And then she remembered.

As if someone had pressed a play button in her head, she found herself reliving last night. The touch of Paul’s hands on her naked body; the taste and smell of him all seemed more real now than it did last night in her drunken brandy haze. It had been hot, intense, but this was heavy stuff—last night she’d had the best sex ever. The best sex ever with my sister’s, best friend’s ex. Not even minding his declaration of, “This is so wrong,” as she slid up his naked body after doing that thing with her tongue that had driven him insane. She held no regrets, knowing that when she said, “Want me to do it again?” he had pushed her back down.

Some great reviews for Tangled Web of Love



ByNancy Pennickon June 20, 2017

A Great Story!

Faith has been in a two-year relationship with a man who doesn’t want to commit or say the “L” word. She decides she is happy with her life until cute old guy enters her cafĂ© one day right after she has a giant fight with her boyfriend. Torn, she is attracted to Abel and his romantic way of flirtation. Then Paul returns, and the games begin!
What I love about Jo Rawson’s books, is that she develops her main and secondary characters, giving them such interesting personalities. No one is really perfect, and no one is truly bad in her books. Then add humor and drama with many twists and turns before you get to the end of the book. The story is not the usual cut and dry love story, of which I read too many. You feel as if you are immersed in someone’s life as you read. Side stories do not distract, but add to the intrigue. Sometimes I found myself rooting for one character then later in the story, not so much. A perfect book to read anytime, anywhere! I must warn, there is a cliffhanger.
I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

I was intrigued from page 1, Faith and Paul, what will happen between them and will it lead anywhere?  The twists and turns as the other characters Abel, Frankie and Sadie appear. The friendships, the love interests, the secrets. Very well written covering all emotions, happiness, sadness, excitement and leaves you wanting more. Please pick up your pen and write the next book. I NEED to know what happens next!

Just finished reading this new novel, "Tangled Web of Love" from Jo Rawson and it was an absolute page turner, I was captivated from the very start. I couldn't wait to see how Faith would choose between Paul and mysterious stranger Abel. The back story which accompanies the protagonists love life leaves you constantly wondering which way it is going to go and the way in which all of the characters are linked gives a realistic view of village life and how the characters are intertwined. Something tells me we haven't heard the last of the lovely Faith! Can't wait to hear more! Definitely reading this book.

 
''Tangled Web of Love captivated me from page 1! Each character is extremely well developed, adding to the humour, and frustration, of village life. If you are looking for a great holiday read, keen to better understand village life in England, or a romance genre fanatic this book is for you. I'm sure we will be hearing more from Faith and Abel as their life together develops - can't wait!'' Hayley - Goa, India.

Tangled Web of Love Shove the husband out of the house and the kids off to school. Get the wine from the fridge, because boy are you going to need it. Tangled Web of Love is exactly what it says on the cover. A tangled web of double dating, secrecy, sexual favours, and betrayal. Ms Rawson takes you off on a journey that no matter what, you can’t put this book down until you have read to the end.
As always Ms Rawson has an amazing skill of brining all her characters to life that you actually feel they are real and so build a personnel bond to them. What is so amazing and skilful about this book, is how Ms Rawson interweaves the core characters storyline into the lives of her secondary characters. If your head is spinning now, then be warned. There are so many twists and turns you will find yourself routing for Faith then Abel, but now it is Paul or could it be Sadie? WARNING this book is spicy, scheming, humours and contagious. You will love it. I can’t wait to know what happens next.
I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.

Losehill House & Spa as featured in Tangled Web of Love


First of all I would like to thank Paul and Kathryn Roden for agreeing to let me feature Losehill House and spa in my latest novel, Tangled Web of Love.

While planning, Tangled Web of Love I wanted my central characters to take a break away, and being a Derbyshire girl there is no better place for a romantic retreat than the Derbyshire Peak District. With the addition of a beautiful, boutique country hotel and spa, set in a secluded spot on the side of Losehill. Stunning views overlooking Win Hill, the words just seemed to flow, allowing me to compose four enchanting chapters.
 
 
 
We are proud to reveal the best-kept secret in the Derbyshire Peak District. Venture along a leafy lane and almost by chance you'll happen across somewhere rather special. Its name is Losehill House, the only 4 star hotel located within the heart of The Peak District National Park. This 1914 Arts and Crafts gem redeveloped as a boutique country hotel, has 23 bedrooms and is beautifully situated near Hope, equidistant from the wonderful villages of Castleton and Edale, all in the midst of some of the best walking and outdoor activity countryside in England.
A great spot for a short break or holiday or just a relaxing escape, we aim to offer our guests a relaxing experience with quality service in an unpretentious and friendly environment. The Peak District is a beautiful area and we believe that our unequalled location, combined with our friendly local staff, award winning Orangery Restaurant and Thalgo Spa are just some of the reasons why our guests adore Losehill House.
