Guest Post. Anneli Purchase shares her new book, MARLIE @anneli33 #Romance #Books #mondayblogs

Welcome Anneli Purchase.

I’m showing off Anneli’s beautiful cover for her latest novel, Marlie, which I must say looks hugely intriguing. Anneli’s joined me today to share a little bit about the book.


Hooked up with the wrong guy, Marlie stumbles through the first few years away from home. When the leg breakers come looking for payment of her partner’s debts, she has had enough. Marlie takes a teaching job in the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii) on the west coast of British Columbia.

Starting over, and determined to make it on her own, she tries to fit in with the small northern community. But the rules are more lax here, and there seem to be fewer of them. Her easy-going nature and her good looks work against her again, as she attracts the attention of a local artist named Clancy, “a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”

Marlie is a great teacher, kind and fun-loving, but perhaps too trusting. The wolf is often at her door and soon shows his teeth. In spite of trying her best, Marlie finds hersrelf on a slippery slope again.

“Marlie” will take you to the remote islands of Haida Gwaii to experience life away from urban centers. You’ll find yourself on boating adventures to both heaven and hell.

Is this rough life too much for a young woman take on alone?

Read “Marlie” and find out her fate as she searches for happiness in these harsh, yet beautiful islands.
