So anyone who frequents this blog will know how much of a fan I am of  Dorothy Koomson.

Cocoa Read: The Rose Petal Beach


Take a peek of the cover art for Dorothy Koomson’s forthcoming novel The Petal Beach. Isn’t it gorge? I love the juxtaposition of the fresh, clean background with the scarlet petals. And can I get an amen for the gorgeous profile of the cocoa toned protagonist on the cover? Long time readers of this blog will know that I’m a huge Dorothy Koomson fan, and her latest sounds like another pulsating page turner. Check out the blurb:

Tamia Challey is horrified when her husband, Scott, is accused of a terrible crime – but when she discovers who his accuser is, everything goes into free-fall. Scared and confused, Tamia is forced to choose who she instinctively believes. But her choice has dire consequences for all concerned, especially when matters take a tragic turn . . .

Dorothy Koomson is a best-selling author who has written eight novels. The Rose Petal Beach, is published by Quercus and is on sale the first week in September. Look out for a review at a later date.
