Today I’m posting in celebration of the launch of Rhoda Baxter’s new novel, Please Release Me. It’s out today, and sitting on my Kindle ready to go!
Here’s the blurb, so you can see why I was tempted:
What if you could only watch as your bright future slipped away from you?
Sally Cummings has had it tougher than most but, if nothing else, it’s taught her to grab opportunity with both hands. And, when she stands looking into the eyes of her new husband Peter on her perfect wedding day, it seems her life is finally on the up.
That is until the car crash that puts her in a coma and throws her entire future into question.
In the following months, a small part of Sally’s consciousness begins to return, allowing her to listen in on the world around her – although she has no way to communicate.
But Sally was never going to let a little thing like a coma get in the way of her happily ever after …

Rhoda’s asked everyone taking part in her launch-day festivities to respond to three prompts. They relate to her story, since all three of her characters are stuck in some way. Here goes!
- The thing I’m stuck on now…
Anything I put is going to seem a tad frivolous, given the predicament of Rhoda’s heroine, but if I let that get to me, then the thing I’d be stuck on is writing this post. So… By the end of this month, I’ll have spent twenty-four hours stuck on trains, travelling to university open days in Lancaster, York and Edinburgh with DD1. I can’t pretend it’s a hardship though since a) I’m hugely curious to see what each university is like b) I enjoy train travel and c) Edinburgh and York are two of my favourite cities. It was my first visit to Lancaster (the one journey already in the bag) but it’s right up there with the others.
As I type, rain is battering the roof window overhead, and the whole of Cambridge is dripping. There’s also that feeling of impending autumn brought on by the sudden influx of unfeasibly large house-spiders. To take me away from all that, I fancy being stuck somewhere warm, with plenty of nice food and drink, and interesting places to explore, with my OH and daughters. Let’s say Rome. (Thanks for asking, Rhoda. I presume just wishing it here will make it come true…?)
These are the stickers I’m currently dreaming about. (OK, they’re post-it notes really, so I hope I’m not cheating.) I’m in the process of plotting a third novel in a new mystery series, set in Cambridge, so I’m keeping track of my clues, red herrings and love affairs with the aid of the study wall and some judicious colour coding.
Right. This post has now come to a sticky end… (I know. I’m sorry.)
