Cover Reveal | Poppy's Recipe For Life by Heidi Swain

Good morning my loves, 

Today I am here very excitedly to take part in a cover reveal for not only an absolute fabulous author, and I do mean fabulous, but also someone who has become a friend, and whom I love dearly. 

Heidi Swain is BACK with another book for 2019 and if you're anything like me, you just need more Heidi in your life! 

I remember my first ever book by Heidi that I read - Summer at SkyLark Farm  and since then I've devoured every book Heidi has written and loved every single one of them. 

Shall we look at the cover first or shall we look at what Heidi's new book for 2019 "Poppy's Recipe For Life" first? Hmmm let's see what Poppy's Recipe for Life is all about first - I like to tease ;)

About the book…

Treat yourself to a glorious novel full of food, sunshine, friendship and love

Things haven’t always been straightforward in Poppy’s life but her dreams are finally within her reach.

She's moving into a cottage in beautiful Nightingale Square, close to the local community garden, where she can indulge her passion for making preserves and pickles. She may not have the best relationship with her family but she is surrounded by loving friends, and feels sure that even her grumpy new neighbour, Jacob, has more to him than his steely exterior belies.

But the unexpected arrival of Poppy's troubled younger brother soon threatens her new-found happiness and as the garden team works together to win community space of the year, Poppy must decide where her priorities lie and what she is prepared to fight for …

Well that sounds so intriguing! The things I love about that blurb is that it involves a cottage and I love love love cottages and the countryside (hence why I have my blog I set up with my man Our Country Home Comforts), I love stories where characters follow their passions whatever they may be especially if they're creative in some way and I think we can all agree that cookery is very creative (and something I perhaps could learn from Poppy to dazzle my family and man). I also want to know more about this Jacob and why Poppy's brother is coming to the community. 

OK... let's have a drum roll for the cover shall we... 







WOW!!!! Honestly! WOW!!! 

This book cover is so beautiful! It's got the spring/summer colours, the brightness is encapsulating, and can I read it now please? 

Ok, so whilst I get my breath back from that gorgeous book cover, let's get the details on where we can pre-order our copy NOW 

Amazon buying links…



*Thank you to Heidi Swain and Books and the City for allowing me to take part in the exclusive cover reveal for this book*


  1. Hallo, Hallo Dawn-Tracy,

    I love a good Foodie Fiction narrative whilst I also have seen Ms Swain's novels in the book blogosphere previously. I haven't had the proper chance to pick one up to read as I sometimes never know where to begin whilst discovering a new author who has different stories to choose from! This one just looked rather fab, as I previously *loved!* a book called "How to Bake the Perfect Life". Felt like they were on on similar wavelengths!

    I also love the concept and idea of community gardens,.. it is slowly starting to take-on over here near my region but not quite. Sounds like an interesting Contemporary story.... thanks for spotlighting it!

    You remind me of how I spotlight books - by talking about why your keen on the plot, and what you hope to find within the story-line!! Smashing showcase! Now, to see if this is avail to fetch through my library!!

    Top cheers!

  2. The novel looks like it would be great for summer reads!
