So, whilst everyone else enjoys their Christmas Eve traditions, Flora escapes the masses and drives to the village of Pooley to seek a specific doorstep. Her doorstep.

Bring out the naughty step! If you read my review you'll understand why author of 'Grand Slam', Tracie Delaney needs to put her behind on it. Then after a time-out I'll give that lady a congratulatory hug.
Here's more about Grand Slam, book 3 in the Winning Ace series...
Release date October 11th!
As this series is a continuation (and you really should pick up the first two!) I'll avoid dropping any spoilers. But Grand Slam starts off at a dark moment for both Cash and Tally. At the beginning of the series, tennis player Cash Gallagher had to go some way to win me over with his arrogance and brashness. Tally seemed like the perfect foil for his flaws. But throughout the series he managed to chip away at me with the authors skill at gradually revealing his vulnerabilities. And now I'm in love. Sure after the end of book 2 I wanted to shake him, but he got me with his messed up idea of selflessness.
Grand Slam begins with Cash and Tally both facing their demons. And Cash has many of...
