It's the final day of the Weave of Love blog tour today, and it's been getting excellent reviews - a solid 4 stars all round. Today I've got a guest post up at Seansbookreviews, on what a (not) typical day looks like for me:

On the blog tour for my last book, Thread of Hope, I wrote about a not-typical day in my life because there’s no such thing as a typical day. There still isn’t – so here’s another not-typical day.  One thing that isn’t typical about today is that there’s unlikely to be anyone but me around for most of the day. Usually my husband is in and out, and he often meets people here. Today he’s set off early to visit a friend for the day, and he’s got another appointment on the way home. Read more...

And there's a review in from It's all about the books, who started with Weave of Love, and is now eager to read the first two books in the series:

It's all about the books - Well to be perfectly honest I am totally kicking myself just now and the reason being that I haven’t read books one and two and went straight into book three. Something I really don’t like doing but the synopsis for Weave of Love got me and I just had to read it. I honestly am glad that I have though and at the beginning of the book you get a handy little run down of what you’ve missed so far or a nice refresh if you have read them.  Now I will admit that I did feel like I’d missed out a bit by not reading the first two books but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment at all, but I will be catching up on the series before reading book four. Read more...

And one from Donnasbookblog - I really enjoyed this story and I thought it was a great addition to the on-going series. I thought it was really well written and I found it to be an addictive read.  I thought that the pace for the book was great and the story held my attention from the outset right through to the ending, it really kept me entertained and I thought it was a fab story.

I've another guest post up today, this one at splashesintobooks, and it's about the different influences on my writing.

One of the questions I get asked is whether people I know are reflected in the characters in my books. The easy answer is yes, of course. The experiences and relationships we have are part of what makes us the people that we are and any writer will reflect that in what they write, either consciously or subconsciously. Read more...

And there's one up at Booksaremycwtches, introducing you to more of the characters. Read it here...

There have been a number of interviews too, including:

B for Bookreview, Jazzy Book Reviews and Bookschatter. That last one even has a playlist of the music that has influenced me that you can listen to. Listen here...

I'll be back with more reviews soon!

And here they are!

Jess Bookish Life - If you have been reading my reviews, you know I have read the previous books in this series, so I was very excited to be able to read this one as well.  “Weave of Love” continues were “Thread of Hope” left off. The world keeps on building and I loved it, as well as the characters development, that seems to never disappoint and keeps things as interesting as before. Read more...

J Bronder Book Reviews I really liked learning more about this world and the different characters. That train ride was so magical that I felt right there with the two of them. I have to say that meeting Perry’s family was the best part. They really made this book.  It is clear by the end of the book that Cloth of Grace is going to be one heck of a read. I can’t wait to get my hands on it and see were Leonie and Perry go next. Read more...

Double Stacked Shelves - Weave of Love is an character driven and absorbing read...it is intriguing, emotional and tense... There is a Christian theme, but this by no mean limits the intended audience for this series and could be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of belief system. It’s really well written with convincing dialogue and great character dynamics. It is post-apocalyptical and complex, with tense situations, yet the love, belonging and selflessness pervades throughout the story and it feels very comforting somehow. I wouldn’t mind spending a while with Perry’s family! Read more...

Books and Geekiness - The world-building is strong in this and it appears to flow rather well from the last book. Read more...

24th October 2019

The last three months have raced by - I can't believe it's been nearly three months since I last wrote here.

But this is a very exciting week - because today is publication day for the third book in the Choices and Consequences series, Weave of Love. There's a blog tour - details are here - and you can follow along. Each day I plan to update the tour page with links to the reviews, interviews and guest posts. And so far, the reviews are great!

Writing with Wolves - The Choices & Consequences series is one that I wasn’t sure about at first & one that I really didn’t expect to get completely into, but I was wrong & instead I love the series & found book three a really relaxed read that I really didn’t want to put down. Read more...

Nursebookie Blog - I really enjoyed this amazing book by Rachel Bonner. The world she created in this Paranormal Romance was exquisite. It had amazing pacing and read very well. The characters were relatable and I fell in love with them. Read more...

The first guest post is about friendship on the Magic of Wor(l)ds website:

My best girl friend and I met when we were three and we’re still friends more years later than either of us would like to count. At times we’ve worked together and been in touch every couple of days. Now we live hundreds of miles apart and there may be times where we don’t speak for months – but we can always pick things up exactly where we left off. If it wasn’t for her encouragement, my books wouldn’t be published – that’s why Weave of Love is dedicated to her.

If you read the dedications for the previous book in the series, Thread of Hope, you may have noticed that it was also in memory of my friend Ronnie. I’d only known him for a few years and we didn’t appear to have much in common. We were of different generations, different backgrounds, gender, education, experiences. All we really had were some shared tasks at church and a love of cricket (which we rarely talked about). And yet, we were friends. Read more...

I'll add more reviews as they come in!

More Reviews!

Jessica Belmont - Rachel J. Bonner has given us a new book in the Choices and Consequences series and I’m so happy I am following this series. Read more...

K T Robson - Being the third book in a series, Weave Of Love starts off with a super helpful recap of what went down in books one and two; so whether it’s been a while since you read it’s predecessors, or have decided to jump straight in with book three, you can get yourself up to speed on the basics of the characters and what’s been happening in the lead up to this book. Personally, I love books that do this because I read a lot of different series and there can be a lengthy gap between reading each book. Read more...

In de Boekenkast (Fany goes English) - What a great installment in this paranormal series. This is the third book by this author I read and I love her writing style every time more and more. Rachel J. Bonner has created an incredible series with fantastic and powerful characters. Read more...

Little Miss Book Lover 87 - I have really enjoyed this book, it really hasn’t disappointed. I found myself completely lost in the story and before I even realised, I’d finished.  This book left me in one of those “what the hell do I read next?” Moods. The author pulled me right into the story and I loved it. Read more...

FNM - Weave of Love is the third book in the Choices and Consequences series and it definitely left me wanting more! Read more...

Book lovers' booklist - Would I recommend Weave of Love? Yes, Bonner writes with fluency, and, by the end, had captured my interest. But I do think readers should take her advice and read books one and two first. Read more...

Radzy Writes - This novel is a wonderful blend of fantasy and romance without the tropes or standard formula, and simply allows people to care about one another in a difficult, uncaring world. It’s a beautiful premise, filled with drama, action, and everything we’ve come to expect from the series. Read more...

27 July 2019

It's been a busy few weeks as always and I'm sure you're eager for news on Weave of Love, third in the Choices and Consequences series. There have been a few hiccups along the way but it now has a cover and there's going to be a proper cover reveal on 30th August, so watch out for that. And it's got a publication day - 24th October 2019! And in turn, that means you can now pre-order it.

The text of Weave of Love is currently with my editor, Sarah for comment. She does an amazing job encouraging me to improve it. I should get her comments back in the first week of August, so I'll have a couple of weeks of intensive rewriting to do then - some authors hate that stage, I really enjoy it, getting back into the characters and the story.

August is going to be a very busy month too. I've got a month of promos running for Strand of Faith (book 1 in the series) and for the whole of August you'll be able to get the ebook version for 99p/99c so take advantage if you haven't already. There's also going to be a couple of giveaways which will include signed copies of both Strand of Faith and Thread of Hope along with other goodies. Sign up to my newsletter here to be sure you don't miss out on your chance - all subscribers are entered automatically. And if you're local to me, I'll be doing a talk at Rawtenstall Library at 2pm on Saturday 3rd August, followed by one at Bacup Library at 2pm on Wednesday 25th September - do come along and say hello.

Then the month will finish with the cover reveal for Weave of Love - but here's a sneak peek.

Weave of Love, book 3 in the Choices and Consequences series is available for pre order now!

 What if your choices have devastating consequences for others?
How can anyone know the right thing to do?


Leonie chose to sacrifice everything to save other people. Now those around her have to face the consequences – and those consequences are not what they expected.

Prospero must deal with his own guilt. He was the one who gave Leonie the tools she needed – her life was in his hands. To make the most of what she did, he will have to face up to all the family issues he has avoided for so long. Whatever he chooses to do, someone he loves will be hurt. For Leonie’s sake, is he now strong enough to make the choice he couldn’t make before?

The crisis predicted by Lord Gabriel has come and gone. But his task isn’t over. Leonie’s very existence maybe out in the open but Gabriel discovers that the past is never what it seems – and nor is the present. How can he use what he now knows to bring together those who have been enemies for as long as anyone can remember? If he fails in this, everything he’s had to do so far will be in vain.
