Blog tour: The Garnett Girls

Welcome to the blog tour for The Garnett Girls by Georgina Moore!

More about the book…

Forbidden, passionate and all-encompassing, Margo and Richard’s love affair was the stuff of legends – but, ultimately, doomed.

When Richard walked out, Margo locked herself away, leaving her three daughters, Rachel, Imogen and Sasha, to run wild.

Years later, charismatic Margo entertains lovers and friends in her cottage on the Isle of Wight, refusing to ever speak of Richard and her painful past. But her silence is keeping each of the Garnett girls from finding true happiness.

Rachel is desperate to return to London, but is held hostage by responsibility for Sandcove, their beloved but crumbling family home.

Dreamy Imogen feels the pressure to marry her kind, considerate fiancé, even when life is taking an unexpected turn.

And wild, passionate Sasha, trapped between her fractured family and controlling husband, is weighed down by a secret that could shake the family to its core…

More about the author…

The Garnett Girls is her first novel and is set on the Isle of Wight, where Georgina and her family have a holiday houseboat called Sturdy. You can find her as @PublicityBooks on Twitter and @georginamooreauthor on Instagram.

My impressions…

It’s early days still but I wouldn’t be surprised if this novel made it into my top 5 books of 2023! Why? A beautiful prose, memorable characters – strong women who come to life inside these pages – and an incredible sense of location that turns the Isle of Wight into a character of its own right. A sweeping family drama that explores the relationships we nurture (or fail to) with lovers and family. A grand debut!

Three words to describe it. Atmospheric. Dazzling. Emotional.

Do I like the cover? I adore it!

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, this is the author’s amazing debut!
