If You Love Me, I’m Yours… by Lizzie Chantree

I am thrilled to be able to share news about the new book by my friend and fellow author, Lizzie Chantree. If You Love, Me I’m Yours… is Lizzie’s second novel. Her first, Ninja School Mum, is excellent and is reviewed on this site here: bookreviewstoday.info/2018/05/21/ninja-school-mum-by-lizzie-chantree-2/
If You Love Me, I’m Yours… is equally exciting and must qualify as having one of the prettiest book covers of the year, too. The book is published by Crooked Cat Books and is available to purchase from Amazon now.
The story of If You Love Me, I’m Yours… tells of the interwoven lives of Maud, Dot and Nate.
Maud didn’t mind being boring, not really. She had a sensible job, clothes, and love life… if you counted an overbearing ex who had thanked her, rolled over and was snoring before she even realised he’d begun! She could tolerate not fulfilling her dreams, if her parents would pay her one compliment about the only thing she was passionate about in life: her art.
Dot should have fit in with her flamboyant and slightly eccentric family of talented artists, but somehow, she was an anomaly who couldn’t paint. She tried hard to be part of their world by becoming an art agent extraordinaire, but she dreamed of finding her own voice.
Dot’s brother Nate, a smoulderingly sexy and famous artist, was adored by everyone. His creative talent left them in awe of his ability to capture such passion on canvas. Women worshipped him, and even Dot’s friend Maud flushed and bumped into things when he walked into a room, but a tragic event in his past had left him emotionally and physically scarred, and reluctant to face the world again.
Someone was leaving exquisite little paintings on park benches, with a tag saying, ‘If you love me, I’m yours’. The art was so fresh and cutting-edge, that it generated a media frenzy and a scramble to discover where the mystery artist could be hiding. The revelation of who the prodigious artist was interlinked Maud, Dot and Nate’s lives forever, but their worlds came crashing down.
Were bonds of friendship, love and loyalty strong enough to withstand fame, success and scandal?
