Release Tour – It Started in Texas M. B. Feeney
Communication issues and crossed wires plague them as they try to work out what is going on with them across thousands of miles. Crazy friends and distance issues aside; can a relationship work, or is it a simple case of ‘a girl in every town’?
M. B. Feeney is an army brat who finally settled down in Birmingham, UK with her other half, two kids and a dog. Currently at university studying for her BA (Hons) in primary teaching, she procrastinates on her assignments by listening to music of all genres and trying to get ‘just one more paragraph’ written on whichever WIP is open. She is also a serious doodler and chocoholic. Writing has been her one true love ever since she could spell, and publishing is the final culmination of her hard work and ambition.
Her publishing career began with two novellas, and she currently has multiple projects under way whilst Honour, a compilation of her own military based shorts, was released in November 2013 and her short novel, The One That Got Away was released February 2015. Always having something on the go can often lead to block which eventually gets dissolved by good music and an even better book.
Her main reason for writing is to not only give her readers enjoyment, but also to create a story and characters that stay with readers long after the book is finished, and possibly make someone stop and think “what if…”
Beyond Books Five Star Review
One could be forgiven for presuming this story is nothing more than the fantasies of a thirty something woman with a crush on a famous actor/musician. Of course there is nothing wrong with that, we’ve all played athe game of ‘wouldn’t it be nice if…’ and while that may well be the case, it doesn’t take long for you to realise that this isn’t some tale of Cinderella being whisked off to fairyland and dressed in Gucci’s finest. The protaginist faces real life dilemmas. She has kids, a life, she’s more Lambrini than Dom Perignon. While Charlotte gets on with real life after a brief affair with her much younger celeb crush Gage, he can’t quite get the feisty Brit out of his head while he’s busy touring with his band and gearing up to promote himself as the next big thing on screen. Resolving their issues isn’t as straight forward as you might think and understandably, Charlotte makes assumptions about Gage due to miscommunication and misunderstandings. While Charlotte and Gage are trying to sort themselves out, secondary characters in the book become the light entertainment. Matt (Gages bandmate)and Karina (Charlotte’s slightly nutty friend)take centre stage and the slight angst is tranferred to them for a while. It would be interesting to see what became of that couple in another book.
It Started in Texas, moved across the pond and landed in my Kindle. Thanks Mich! I couldn’t put it down!
