Will a blind date on the radio blossom into romance on the airwaves ?
DJ Marky Sparks is hanging onto his career by a thread – he needs a miracle.
Steven Byrne has an invite to his brother’s “Couples Only” party – he needs a date.
Matilda ‘Mats’ Davidson has dumped her cheating boyfriend – she doesn’t need anything.
A drunken email brings these three strangers together and changes their lives in ways they couldn’t have foreseen.
Mats Davidson has just dumped her cheating boyfriend so is less than impressed to find herself, thanks to her interfering best friend, taking part in a radio version of Blind Date barely two hours later.
Steven Byrne can’t attend his brother’s “Couples Only” engagement party without a date and is horrified to find he’s sent a drunken email to a local radio station asking for their help in finding one.
DJ Marky Sparks seizes the opportunity to add a different element to his morning breakfast show and in doing so, brings Mats and Steven together.
While the date is a success, there are no plans to meet again but DJ Sparks has other ideas. He formats a plan to bring Mats and Steven together while also, hopefully, saving his radio station and his career.
A story of adventure, courage, tears and a whole lot of love!
I’d like to thank Zoe from Zooloo’s Book Tours for contacting me to take part in this blog tour.
What a fun and cute read! Radio Ha Ha follows the love story of Mats and Steven, two loveable characters who are thrown together by DJ Marky Sparks. Whilst I wasn’t entirely sure that two strangers would agree to date each other for a radio show I let myself get swept up in the fun of the story.
The dates were brilliant and I loved seeing how Mats and Steven handled the different challenges that each date brought. From the beginning these two just seemed to fit and you could see the sparks starting to fly long before they did.
Whilst this was a fun read it also had a lot of emotion to it. Mats story with her mum and dad as well as Steven’s appalling family all provided plenty of drama. It showed the imperfections of our two favourite characters and really tugged at my heart strings.
I have to give a shout out to Penny and Marky Sparks because these two characters were little gems. Whilst I didn’t warm to Marky Sparks straight away by the end it was hard not to like him. These two supporting characters were everything Mats and Steven needed to get themselves on track and their meddling often had me giggling.
This was a charming and delightful read that could easily be read and devoured in one sitting. It’s full of heart, fun and clever wit!
Kiltie Jackson spent her childhood years growing up in Scotland. Most of these early years were spent in and around Glasgow although for a short period of time, she wreaked havoc at a boarding school in the Highlands.
By the age of seventeen, she had her own flat which she shared with a couple of cats for a few years while working as a waitress in a cocktail bar (she’s sure there’s a song in there somewhere!) and serving customers in a fashionable clothing outlet before moving down to London to chalk up a plethora of experiences which are now finding their way into her writing.
Once she’d wrung the last bit of fun out of the smokey capital, she moved up to the Midlands and now lives in Staffordshire with one grumpy husband and another six feisty felines.
Her little home is known as Moggy Towers even though, despite having plenty of moggies, there are no towers! The cats kindly allow her and Mr Mogs to share their home as long as the mortgage continues to be paid.
Since the age of three, Kiltie has been an avid reader although it was many years later before she decided to put pen to paper – or fingers to keyboard – to begin giving life to the stories in her head.
Her debut novel was released in September 2017 and her fourth book, ‘A Timeless Lovestyle’ was a US Amazon bestseller in Time Travel Romance.
Kiltie loves to write fiery and feisty female characters and puts the blame for this firmly on the doorsteps of Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables and George Kirrin from The Famous Five.
When asked what her best memories are, Kiltie will tell you:
1. Queuing up overnight outside the Glasgow Apollo to buy her Live-Aid ticket.
2. Being at Live-Aid.
3. Winning an MTV competition to meet Bon Jovi in Sweden. (Although, if Mr Mogs is in earshot, the latter is changed to her wedding day.)
Her main motto in life used to be “Old enough to know better, young enough not to care!” but thathas since been replaced with “Too many stories, not a fast enough typist!”
