Blog tour! Claudia Carroll-Love Me Or Leave Me exclusive extract...

I'm very lucky to be part of the blog tour for this fab new novel from Claudia Carrol which was released yesterday. I have been very kindly sent an extract from the beginning of the novel to share with you today!

The ebook came out yesterday & the paperback is out next month but if you want to find out a little bit more, here's the extract to whet your appetite...

Some Years Ago…


‘Shh, shh, shh,’ I can hear my best friend Gemma saying, as she hands me a fistful of Kleenex and purposely avoids hugging me, so as not to crumple the wedding dress. Even though it makes shag all difference now. My perfect wedding dress too; the one I spent long, long months trawling just about every bridal shop the length and breadth of the country to find.
‘It’s all right, sweetheart. Just try to tell me what happened.’
Right then, I think, staring dully back at her. You asked for it, so here you go. Here it is; what I can remember of what my life was barely minutes ago, before the whole skin got sipped off the surface of it, exposing nothing but raw flesh underneath.
The killer is, I’m just a nice, ordinary, normal girl. This isn’t the kind of thing that’s supposed to happen to nice, ordinary, normal girls, now is it?
Gemma says nothing, just nods silently and waits till I’ve finished.
‘You’ll be OK, you know.’
‘Will I?’
She paused for a beat and I was so grateful to her for at least answering me honestly. But then, Gemma is one of those people who physically gets heartburn when required to lie.
‘I only wish I could say yes.’
