Thanks to Brook Cottage Books, Grumpies On Board is on a virtual tour this week. You can win a signed copy of the book and a Grumpy Old Git/Cow mug by visiting one of the tour stops and clicking on the Rafflecopter sign there.

I’ve been squealing in delight every day at all the incredible reviews the book has been receiving:

Jo Lambert says: It’s full of hilarious observations as well as helpful information on anything and everything to do with roaming either near or far from home. This was a total departure from the normal novels I read and review and was thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end.

You can read her entire review at her spiffy blog Jo Lambert Books by clicking HERE.

If you’d like to find out what the nuttiest thing is that I have done, trundle over to Suzie Turner’s blog Fiction Dreams (It’s beautiful!) to establish what a complete nutter I am. You’ll find it HERE.

AJ Book Review Club said: I loved Mr Grumpy his recommendations were so great Carol got a fabulous way with her words that just make you smile as you read.

Read what else AJ had to say at AJ Book Club Review by clicking HERE (I am still beaming at that review. It made Mr Grumpy ridiculously pleased.)

Nikki Bywater let me tell you how the whole Grumpy Trilogy came about:

Are you sitting comfortably?

Once upon a time there was a lonely housewife, facing a big birthday, whose husband had taken early retirement and was shattering her everyday peace by being at home all the time. No longer could she watch afternoon television in peace or go out to the shops without her husband joining her and preventing her from buying anything she fancied.

Read the whole post at her blog Nikki’s Books4U (click HERE) a fantastic site crammed full of authors and great reads.

Julie Ryan said: I love her ‘can-do’ attitude coupled with the ‘not blooming likely’ response of her Grumpy. Whatever your age, this book will encourage you to seize the moment and do something memorable – hopefully for all the right reasons.

You can read more at All Things Bookie by clicking HERE and find out why I spent the morning dancing around the kitchen waving a tea towel.

And last, but not least…in fact, she was the first, the wonderful Anne Williams kicked off the tour with her post at Being Anne, a lovely site, which you can read HERE.

There are quite a few more stops and posts tomorrow and Friday so please drop by and don’t forget to enter the draw. And maybe even get a copy of Grumpies On Board!
