a book in review & author interview

Brief Summary:

Sydney journalist Charli Cooper is making major changes in her life. She has no idea what destiny has in store for her as she moves half way around the world for a fresh start. 

Jack Manning is everything Charli shouldn't want. He is arrogant, cocky and use to getting what he wants. He has no time to deal with an inexperienced journalist who has no idea of the New York social hierarchy. 

As she unlocks the truth about Manning and his empire, she realises all is not as it seems and if she digs deep enough, she might just find the story she has been looking for. She has to make a decision between her ambition and her heart. 

Will the secrets they both hold cause their delicately poised relationship to crumble? 

Can one mistake unravel their lives? 


I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is the perfect easy, lazy Sunday read. The author deliveries a story that gives you more than you bargain for. It has everything you could ask for in a chick lit novel.  There's love, a little mystery, a whole lot of New York, and a few tears along the way. As much as I enjoyed this story, I really loved Suzanne's writing style, her storytelling makes this book so enjoyable. I recommend this 5 star book to anyone who is in the mood for a great, light weekend read, xo!

Author Interview:

P&B: How did you get into writing?  
Suzanne Nicole: My mum and sister are both writers.  I'm forever inventing stories in my head and thought it would be great to get in and have a go at converting them to words on paper.

P&B: Authors who've influenced you? 
Suzanne Nicole: Oh so many authors I love reading from classic authors to more contemporary authors … hmm I've read a lot of Jessica Sorensen, Colleen Hoover, Marian Keyes, Phillipa Gregory, Diana Gabaldron just to name a few.

P&B: How long did it take you to write Unravelled? 
Suzanne Nicole: Around two years including going through the three stages of editing, which was really hard as I knew I couldn't touch it while I was waiting for comments and changes to come through.

P&B: What's your writing process?  
Suzanne Nicole: Sitting in bed converting my hand-written notes into something that resembles a story on the computer.

P&B: Fave breakfast food?  
Suzanne Nicole: Bacon and egg wrap … although I normally have cereal.

P&B: Coffee or tea? How do you take it?  
Suzanne Nicole: Oh neither … but I'm pretty partial to a hot chocolate :)

P&B: Ideal day? 
Suzanne Nicole: Sitting by the pool on a warm day reading ...

P&B: What's up next in your writing career?  
Suzanne Nicole: I have started my next book with a new snarky male who is not to pleased about having to come to Australia.
