The colour pink

Pink on the cover of a book is normally a huge no no.  It means romance novel, and coming from a household where at one point my mum consumed Barbara Cartland novels like they were catnip (it was a phase)  I've seen enough heaving bosoms and broad chests to put me off for life - and that was just the blurbs.  So I was wary of Beth McMullen's Original Sin - about a wife and mother who used to be spy but the blurb sounded fun so I gave it the 50 page treatment and hadn't even got that far when I started loving it.  The book is out in July.
