Launch and review of Sophie's Encore by Nicky Wells

Happy, exhilarated, bereft. That's how author Nicky Wells feels now she has finished her trilogy. To be honest, I'm feeling all those things too now I've finished reading all three of these brilliantly written books!  I'm delighted to have had the opportunity to be alongside her along the way.  

But now she's finished the trilogy - is that it? Not a chance! Nicky has a surprise later this year, when her fourth full-length book, Fallen For Rock, is scheduled for release in the summer of 2014.  Can't wait to get my hands on it! 

But for now - its’ time to Rock And Roll in earnest! Yes, Nicky Wells is here to celebrate the upcoming launch of Sophie’s Encore. Three cheers for the third book in her Rock Star Romance Trilogy!!!

Says Nicky,
“I’m so excited to share with you, finally, this third installment in Sophie and Dan’s epic romance! Thank you for coming to celebrate with me. Read on for:
The blurb!

The fantabulous giveaway!

But most of all, enjoy yourself and party hard! Are you ready?”

Sophie’s Encore — The Blurb

Her rock star is waiting in the wings, but will he get a second chance?

It’s all change for Sophie Jones—only this time, there is more at stake than just her happiness.

Rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, has been her patient and caring friend through the highs and lows since her wedding day, but now he figures it is time for her to start over. By stealth, the rock singer draws Sophie into the behind-the-scenes work for his band’s latest album. Through the days and weeks spent together at the mixing desk, Sophie discovers whole new horizons for her life, yet before she can even begin to explore them, she faces the very real threat of losing her rock star for good.

Join Sophie and Dan in Sophie’s Encore to find out how their journey will end…


So, what did I think? Here's my review. 

I loved both Sophie's Turn and Sophie's Run and wondered how the plot would develop in the third book of the trilogy. Because it had been a few month's since I read Sophie's Run, I was also unsure how quickly I would get back into the story. Not something I had to worry about with this stunner of a book. Within the first few pages I was firmly ensconced back into this fabulous storyline and was not planning to move! 

When it ended, I was really quite sad! I just wanted to carry on living with these characters who I feel I knew in their lives. One minute I was Sophie, the next I was Dan (if that doesn't sound a bit freaky!). Nicky Wells puts so much effort into developing her characters and making you love them, it really pays off. I also knew the way I wanted the story to end and was starting to worry at one point which way it would turn and how I was going to cope. 

I could honestly follow this couple until they are well into their old age so hope the author has plenty more adventures up her sleeve! Brilliantly written by Nicky Wells, lots of laugh out loud giggles, plenty of tears and emotional ups and downs along the way with some rather raunchy thrown in, I do believe her ladyship has excelled herself with Sophie's Encore! 

You don't have to take my word for it. Here are some instructions to do next: Use the links above to buy the book. When you have received it, get rid of your house mates, shut the curtains, take the phone off the hook, and under no circumstances - do not answer the door. You should make a flask up and you may need a box of chocs to dip into from time to time or some snacks as cooking is definitely off the agenda! Then curl up on the sofa, make sure you are comfortable and read away to your heart's content and enjoy every second! (Oh and don't forget to leave a review on Amazon too.)
