A Wedding in Tuscany by Sandy Barker / #Interview #BlogTour @rararesources @sandybarker

Holiday Romance Book 5

The Parsons sisters are all loved up.

Sarah is living in Sydney with Josh and their cat, Domino, but is anxious about her fast-approaching fortieth birthday.

And Cat is still living in London with her flatmate, Jane, but is in a long-distance relationship with Jean-Luc, her childhood sweetheart and recently re-discovered love.

One of the sisters receives a surprise wedding proposal – it’s a yes! – and everyone heads off to Tuscany for a destination wedding.

Reunite with favourite characters from the Holiday Romance series in one of the most beautiful locations yet for love, laughter, wedding vows, and just a smidge of sisterly mayhem




Which character would you like to be in this book?

I love all these characters – especially the ones I have spent the most time with, like Josh, Sarah and Cat. I think I’d like to be Sarah most – she’s already the one most like me and I like the life that she and Josh have in Sydney.

Do you always take a book/ereader wherever you go?

I have the Kindle app on my phone so always have something to read if I’m waiting or on public transit. It’s more fun and a better use of my time than scrolling social media feeds!

Say someone asks if they can use your name in a book. Would you rather be the ‘good one’ or the ‘bad one’?

I’d love to be a villain – they often have the most fun. It’s also fun to write a good villain, because, as they say, even the villain is the hero of their own story.

Do you prefer to read/write standalones or series?

I love a series. I can tend to fall in love with a set of characters, so it’s great knowing there will be more stories featuring them. The BEST is when you discover a series after a few years and have all the books to look forward to.

Where can I find you when you are reading?

Anywhere, but I almost always read right before bedtime.

Where can I find you when you are not writing/reading?

Probably out and about in Melbourne – it’s a great city and there is a lot of parklands and the riverfront to explore. I am also a bit of a gym junkie and love a good wine bar.

Can you walk past a bookstore without going inside?

NO! I love to browse actual books but I will usually buy books in ebook format. Many bookstores have great stationery sections too and I will always buy something. I am a stationery junkie!

What are you most proud of?

With regards to what I’ve accomplished, it would have to be publishing 8 books in 3 and a ½ years – all while working a day job. This is what I will have accomplished by the end of 2022.

What goes through your mind when you hold your new book in your hands for the first time?

Joy. Pure joy. It is a physical manifestation of hundreds of hours of work and it all feels worth it.

What piece of advice would you give to aspiring writers?

Get the story down – you cannot edit a blank page.

Thank you for having me and for being on the blog tour!

Thank you
