This is now on it's way to wilmar, enjoy! Posted Monday Nov 30th.
Thanks so much ielfling, also for the choclate bar. Both book and candy look so good I have to fight the urge to dive into them immediately!
I'm really looking forward to this one. I'm currently reading 'Between males' by Fiona Walker, and I once again realised how much I enjoy books by this author.
On the very top of my TBR pile, however, is 'The Piano tuner'. I hope to be able to send it on to you soon. - You will hear from me!
As always she surprises me with the troubled characters she comes up with, and as always she has me completely hooked after a few pages. I'm afraid it's a fact: Fiona Walker books are my only addiction (besides coffee)!
I was happy to read on fionawalker.com that she is busy writing another book, because I'm running out of supplies (read nearly everything already).
Thanks so much ielfling! At the moment I'm a bit stuck in 'The piano tuner', but I'll do my best to finish it asap, and then it comes your way. I will try to find another interested reader for this one, and otherwise I'll release it soon.
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
And: Happy reading and happy bookcrossing :)
*edit* abstract (from madaboutbooks.com):
Spurs Belling had the X factor. In all her years travelling with dangerous sports fanatics, most especially surfers, Ellen had only met half a dozen who truly had it. And Richard, who had so wanted it, had never really possessed one cell of X. Spurs Belling was pure, unadulterated X. It made him very, very dangerous. And as far as Ellen was concerned, somebody to be avoided at all costs.
When she successfully bids for ‘Three Wishes’ at a charity auction, Ellen’s only wish is that she hadn’t wasted her twenties on a safe relationship and dangerous sports. She and Richard, her ex, had spent a decade working through the winter months to finance their passion for surfing every summer.
This summer is different. After thirteen years, all passion is spent and they’ve called it a day. With her life in suitcases and boxes, Ellen agrees to help her parents sell their unoccupied Cotswold cottage – then she plans to travel the world. Little does she know that idyllic Oddlode contains the world’s sexiest hell-raiser, and she finds herself travelling uncharted waters to unknown territory – headlong into love.
Ellen must be careful what she wishes for. As sports go, they don’t get much more dangerous than falling for the wrong man. . .
Nevertheless I couldn't lay the book down and had to read all the 660 pages. All is well that ends well....
Thank you Wilmar for making this a ring. I might try another Fiona Walker next time!
Sending it off to the next reader as soon as I've the address.
Edit 02/02: Mailed to 061019alexandra today. Happy reading!
I find it very difficult to read in englisch again, but so far it is a nice book. But i can't read it in a month, so this book is longer with me.
Wilmar has let me know that it is no problem
It's a nice story but it is to difficult for me to read in englisch.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
OOk op de bus naar LenaLena
I agree with joanazinha that the story could have been shorter, but I never found it boring. I'm really curious what Fiona Walker imagined when she described Spurs! I think some kind of Brad Pitt (see journal entry pic) or a little bit meaner and tougher. Yummie!
(ik zie trouwens dat het boek niet door de brievenbus gaat, jammer, mag het open verstuurd worden? Anders wordt het zo duur)
Enitnaj, ik had de envelop dichtgeplakt, en toen lag hier nog het bijbehorende kaartje o tafel, dus bij deze: Veel leesplezier! (-:
I'll send Wandering a pm, and then the book will be on its way again!
Thanks for making this a ring, Wilmar!
edit: book sent on January 8th
Pebby71 asked to be skipped, so this book is going to Barbje next. Enjoy the read!
p.108: She was grateful wandering around, enjoying the peace of early-morning birdsong, misty sunshine and warm tea.
p.117: Even accounting for half an hour wandering around the Lodge's lost gardens, Ellen was an early riser.
p.149: There were chickens wandering free range in the lane and a white goose flapped from an old churn stand.
p.408: It was a far cry from wandering lethargically to the Treglin Arms, and she felt a great, ill-timed pang of homesickness.
p.454: Ellen gratefully spotted Pheely wandering back along Goose Ens as they ran the last leg, her arms full of Sunday papers and croissants, a jaunty headscarf covering her dirty hair.
May 31: started reading the book this week!
I will make a releasenote when I send it off to the next reader!
edit June 22nd: I'm taking this book with me to Castricum this afternoon, maybe Lunabooks will be there!
Since I am the last person for this ray I'll post a message on the Dutch forum to ask if there are any other interested readers.
