Book News: Talli Roland

Yes, I know Talli only guested on my blog Friday but couldn’t wait to share the news of not only her Autumn release (due November 2012) but ALSO Talli has a novella coming out in early December!


Thirty-something Emma Beckett has always looked down on ‘the glass is half full’ optimists, believing it’s better to be realistic than delusional. But when she loses her high-powered job and fiancé in the same week, even Emma has difficulty keeping calm and carrying on.

With her world spinning out of control and bolstered by a challenge from her best friend, Emma makes a radical decision. For the next year, she’ll behave like Pollyanna: attempting to always see the upside, no matter how dire the situation.

Can adopting a positive attitude give Emma the courage to build a new life, or is finding the good in everything a very bad idea?

I’m intrigued to see how Emma’s attitude affects her life … as my belief (from experience) is that a situation is coloured by the perception of the observer.  Of course we have to be realistic about being optimistic 🙂



As Little Missington’s first Christmas baby in fifty years and the daughter of ‘Christmas When You Like It’ party planners, Holly West has been surrounded by the holiday spirit since birth. Trouble is, she’s not exactly filled with festive cheer. In fact, Holly can’t wait to ditch the tinsel and Santa suits for champagne and celebs, and become a party planner to the stars. 

When British film star Dean Layton hires her parents’ company to throw his holiday bash in Manhattan, Holly jumps at the chance to help, confident she can handle a little Christmas in exchange for access to Dean’s exclusive world.

But New York – and Dean’s over the top demands – are more than Holly bargained for. Can Holly deck the halls and make it a party to be proud of, or will this Christmas be one she’ll never forget . . . even if she wants to?

I absolutely adore the cover.  For me it has that traditional feel about it but also looks modern.  The colourful lamp against the grey of the skyline is very symbolic.
What do you think?
