New Release; Picnics in Hyde Park (a novel); #LoveLondon bk 6

Picnics in Hyde Park

I can hardly believe it… after a frantic twelve months of writing and a hectic publication schedule over the last nine, it’s finally time for the last story in the #LoveLondon series, the novel that ends it in fact, to be released.

I must admit that I’m feeling a bit emotional (okay, a lot). I have been so lucky with this series, in terms of the wonderful support from my lovely editor Charlotte, my fellow HarperImpulse authors and the hard work of the HarperImpulse team, as well as the chart positions some of the novellas have reached and especially the way readers/reviewers/bloggers have taken the series to heart. It’s meant a lot to me, and I hope the #LoveLondon stories continue to flourish. I was ecstatic when the first advanced review appeared on NetGalley and Goodreads and it was a five star review, so the signs are good but I’m not fooling myself that everyone will feel the same, so I have my fingers crossed for luck 🙂

If you follow me on Facebook, I’ve made no secret of the fact that this has been a difficult second book (fine, ruddy impossible) to write at times but Matt and Zoe have been with me a long time so now it’s done, I feel like I’m saying goodbye to old friends. They first appeared in my head in 2012 when I wrote the opening chapter of their story, which was a finalist  in Novelicious Undiscovered that year as The Nanny’s Revenge, so they’ve been with me quite a while. I guess that as I’ve changed over the last few years, and had different life experiences, they’ve grown with me, and what started as a story about a girl on the rebound out for revenge has become a much deeper novel about family, regret and forgiveness, overcoming grief and finding love when you least expect it. I hope that readers love Matt and Zoe as much I do, that they fall in love with London over the course of the long, hot summer and that they take something magical away with them when they close the pages. That’s what this book and the series has given me as an author – a chance to fall in love with London and celebrate love, however it’s found.

So, what’s it all about? Here’s the blurb…

‘Whoever said romance was dead has clearly never read a Nikki Moore book’ – Rachel’s Random Reads

The perfect novel for reading in the sunshine … and falling in love with London.

Hot summer romance…or cold revenge?

Super nanny, Zoe Harper is mad! It was bad enough discovering her ex-fiancé Greg cheating on her just weeks before their wedding. But now she’s returned home to London to find her younger sister Melody has been left jobless, homeless, broke and dumped.

Zoe is determined to get revenge on the infamous Reilly brothers for her sister’s heartbreak. So when an unexpected opportunity gives Zoe a way in to uncaring—and dizzyingly gorgeous!—successful music producer Matt Reilly’s world, she jumps at the chance to make him pay.

But living with Matt as nanny to his two adorable, but complicated children, Zoe soon begins to suspect that not everything is as it seems… Matt insists on pushing everyone away including his children, but why? And if his delicious summer kisses are anything to go by, he can’t be that bad surely?

Can Zoe convince Matt to open up a little and help fix this family before she leaves…or worse, before Matt learns who she really is?
