Sometimes, I read a novel’s summary and my mind starts spiralling. Not in a bad way, but rather in one of the best ways possible.
When I read the summary for K.L. Loveley’s Love, Secrets and Absolution, my mind immediately filled with questions. I’m willing to bet those same questions will at least cross your mind once you give it a look through–all but one, that is.
What question won’t cross your mind? Well, I wanted to know what the cover looked like, because it hadn’t been released yet. Today, I’m happy to help reveal it.
This cover looks so introspective to me, somehow. Maybe it’s the colours, possibly the position of the model. Regardless, I’d say it fits the summary rather well.

About the author

To date, the author has enjoyed 40+ years working as a Nurse for the NHS , the latter twenty years as a Practice nurse in Primary care.

Some of her favourite bestselling authors include, Joanne Harris, Jodi Picoult, Marian Keyes, John le Carré, Maeve Binchy , Jojo Moyes and Philippa Gregory.

The author uses a pen name, K.L Loveley, aka Katie Lily Loveley. She felt compelled to use these names of her female ancestors, as a unique way of keeping their memory alive. Katie Loveley was the birth name of her maternal great grandmother. Lily, the Christian name of her paternal Grandmother. Alice, the main protagonist of her debut novel, was the name of her maternal grandmother. However, all of the characters in her stories are purely fictional.
