J is for...

Juli Page Morgan

The Blurb:

Under Katie Scott’s flower child exterior beats the heart of June Cleaver. Though she digs her bellbottoms and love beads, she longs for the idyllic family life she was denied as a child.

Laughed out of San Francisco’s Haight Ashbury after the Summer of Love for believing rock ’n roll and white picket fences can coexist she decides to try her luck in the bohemian neighborhood of Ladbroke Grove in London.
When she discovers her new friend Adam is starting a band with Jay Carey, she’s ecstatic. She’d admired the British guitar god from afar for years, and when she and Jay finally meet the attraction between them is instantaneous.

But life with a rock ’n roll star doesn’t lend itself well to white picket fences. And when Katie tells Jay the secret she’s carried for two years it may end the dream before it begins.

Crimson and Clover, by debut author Juli Page Morgan, follows the far-out, groovy journey of a free-spirited heroine and her hard-rocking lover through the turbulent late Sixties and early Seventies.

This must-read book is an up-well-past-midnight delight that will leave you craving More, More, More!” – Traci Douglass, author of Seal of Destiny

“Juli Page Morgan’s debut novel, Crimson and Clover, is a nostalgic breath of fresh air, full of characters that are fully fleshed and step out from between the covers and into your imagination. Come relive the Swingin’ Sixties and discover the secret world of rock guitar gods and the women who love them.” – Debi Matlack, author of Old Dogs.

Book blurbing my way through the challenge here, and limericking my way through the April A-Z over at The Furry Tale Chronicles. Please stop by!! 


  1. Crimson and Clover sounds like a really interesting story. And something I want to read.

    Happy A to Z blogging.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! And yes, this is another great blurb... I seriously can't even begin to decide which book I want to read first from the selection I've posted so far this month, and we're not even half way through the challenge yet!

      Wish I could retire early just so that I could read and write to my heart's content. *sighs*

  2. Made me think of the song by the same name from the 50's or 60's.

    1. I've heard of that song, but haven't actually HEARD it... but the blurb sounds so cool, doesn't it?

  3. Thank you so much, Tara! This whole month has been so fun. You are such a rockstar for doing this! :)

    1. Hahaha, definitely not a rockstar... but REALLY happy to spread the word about books from my old AND new friends. :D
