Take Me, I’m Yours Blog Tour – here’s how it went.

September 15th – The first bloggers to comment on my tour are: Being Anne and A Girl and Her Books and Against the Flow Press,

Anne Williams saidI had the pleasure and honour of being an early reader, and sharing my review on publication day – you’ll find that review again here, and I suspect you might just pick up how very much I enjoyed it.

Deborah wroteI was hooked from the moment India picked up the monkey wrench, determined to defend herself, if necessary, from the bullying Logan – and I did not want to put it down. I thought all of the characters were totally believable, and the plot twists and turns kept me reading, long into the night. 

September 16th Jerra’s Jamboree posted an extract from Take Me, I’m Yours.

Against her better judgement, India has turned up at the picnic auction and MacFarlane has bought her picnic basket for the outrageous sum of $1000. (Jera's Jamboree) Jeremy Bishop - IMG_1913 - UnsplashShe disturbs him, affects him like no other woman he has ever met and he wants to remind her who the alpha male is in these parts. But India isn’t easily crushed. They both discover that there is a thin line between anger and sexual arousal.  Time, India decides, to redraw the boundaries.

September 16th Jess left a comment, too. “It was an amazingly written story with a Romeo and Juliet touch . . . From the very first page I was hooked.

September 17thTake Me, I’m Yours is awarded best seller ticket.

On her blog, Jessica Carrow declared: “Take Me, I’m Yours, immediately drew me in with the vivid descriptions of Wisconsin. There was a real feeling to this small town community where everyone knows everyone’s business.” img151 (2)

Marianne   thought TMIY had “a fast paced plot and some great sub-plots and a range of lively characters, it is a story which I was loathe to leave.”

Jazzy Books included an extract:  Logan MacFarlane has a wild streak, one hidden beneath a business suit and a smooth manner. From the moment of their first meeting, India Buchanan has got under his skin and destroyed his composure. They have crossed swords and exchanged hot words over the ownership of her aunt’s house. A house MacFarlane wants but which India has vowed will never be his. They are about to meet up at a picnic auction and MacFarlane is determined to show India just who calls the shots in MacFarlane’s Landing. 

September 18th – Ali – the Dragon Slayer  “I went into it unprepared for the immediate sizzle factor, within minutes my latest book boyfriend had appeared. Good grief, Logan MacFarlane had sparked my interest and the heat and tension increased rapidly. Damn, was he hot!?

Berit, – This is my first book from Lizzie Lamb and I am now a huge fan! Such a beautifully told story filled with so much emotion and heart… The wit and humor in this book was a perfect balance to the emotion… bruno-aguirre-317551-unsplash (2)

September 19th Another extract, this time from Cheeky.pea India Buchanan has had a peripatetic childhood due to the fact that her parents and career diplomats. She’s spent the summer with her English cousins, the winter with her great-aunt in Wisconsin and the rest of the time in boarding school, university or improving residential camps. Now she wants to put down roots, to belong – and to open up and English-style bed and breakfast in her aunt’s old house. Unfortunately, the ownership of the house is contested by Logan MacFarlane . . . a man used to getting what he wants.

Rae Reads commentedIf you love stories set in small towns with warmth and romance then I can recommend picking up a copy of Take Me, I’m Yours! Entertaining, romantic with some very sizzling chemistry between the characters. Four stars from me!

I loved that Julie Ryan  drew parallels between the Buchanans/MacFarlanes and the Capulets and Montagues – warring families indeed. And that she added in her review, I’ve read a couple of Lizzie’s books set in Scotland but this one has the best of both worlds, being set in Wisconsin albeit with a strongScottish thread running through. 

Friday the 21st brought a fabulous review from Cathy RyanThe characters, including the secondary ones, are wonderfully drawn and there’s lots of snappy, entertaining dialogue. The history between the families is intriguing and not what I imagined. It shows how a dispute can escalate and impact on future generations. As the barriers begin to seem insurmountable….will they find a way?”

. . . and an extract from Laura’s Interests, and a heated one at that (!) Cue Fireworks –

Many thanks to Kay at Coffee and Kindle Book Reviews for her review of TMIY. “This was the first book by Lizzie Lamb I have read  and boy was it a treat to read. I enjoyed the story from start to finish. I thought all of the characters were written well and I enjoyed learning about the history of both the MacFarlane and Buchanan families, and finding out why there was such a battle for ownership of the house in MacFarlane’s Landing, Wisconsin.”

  2. Wowee – what an achievement, .Take Me I’m Yours’ on which, goes without saying, the majority verdict is: a fabulous read, written by an author as indefatigable as her engaging characters. And the Blog tour, exhausting but rewarding, an exemplary demonstration of how it’s done. Well done, Our Lizzie (said in a Scottish accent).
