Today I am very excited to be opening the blog tour for a new Junction Publishing book, Poppy Bloom by Rebekah Dodson. The book was published 2nd October 2018.
About the Book
Vicki Morel believes she and Will, her gorgeous fiancé, have it all. They’re living the American dream. That is, until Portland, Oregon is leveled by a terrorist grade light weapon, and she loses Will at the airport.
Ambrose Palamo is an aviation student who wants one thing: to go home to Samoa. But when Portland is leveled, and he meets Vicki, he promises to help her find her fiancé instead. What he doesn’t expect is the feelings that start to form for her as they search the dangerous Oregon woodlands.
Sometimes love isn’t what you think it is.
The poppies bloom reminds them of what they’ve lost, while giving them the courage to face a brand new future.
One of my favourite categories to read is Dystopia so when I was asked about this book I thought it sounded really good and one I could get into really easily. I was not disappointed.
I have previously read Abby’s Promise by Rebekah so thought I knew the kind of book she writes, but this one is so different from Abby’s Promise that I loved it even more. This book is definitely more my thing than Abby’s Promise as it is Dystopia.
The book starts off with a bang when Vicki is stuck at Portland when the city is destroyed by a terrorist bomb. From there we also meet Ambrose who is trying to get home, and the two of them try and help each other.
I really liked the way the two main characters interacted with each other and worked as a team to try and find Vicki’s Fiance.
It is a brilliant book, which kept me hooked and I can’t wait to read book 2 when it is published.
