ShortBookandScribes #BlogTour #GuestPost by Natalie Normann, Author of Summer Island #RandomThingsTours

He never meant to stay.
He certainly never meant to fall in love…
Summer Island off the coast of Norway was the place London chef Jack Greene should have been from. He’s an outsider in the community that should have been his family, and now he’s setting foot on the strange land he has inherited for the first time.
Ninni Toft, his nearest neighbour, has come to the island to mend her broken heart. With her wild spirit and irrepressible enthusiasm, she shows city-boy Jack the simple pleasures of island life – and what it means to belong. To a place. To a people. To one person in particular…
Home is where the heart is, but is Jack’s heart with the career he left behind in London, or on the wind-swept shores of Summer Island, with Ninni?
Summer Island is just what you need right now! Don’t believe us? Look at what our readers think:

Ten things about me by Natalie Normann
- I’m a Captains daughter.
- I write seven books a year.
- I’m seriously introvert until I’m not.
- I wrote my first novel when I was fourteen and later turned it into an historical romance series.
- I write in English and Norwegian.
- I’m a terrible driver.

Natalie Normann grew up in a shipping town on the west-coast of Norway and always wanted to be a writer. Actually, she wanted to smoke cigars and drink whiskey like Hemingway but settled for chocolate and the occasional glass of Baileys.
Her writing journey started with short stories in women’s magazines until her first book was published in 1995.
Summer Island is her first romance written in English.
