Don’t Let Your Tea Go Cold
By Rob and Shannon Marshall
Published by Blue Ocean Publishing
A contemporary book about death letters Den's story begins with basic training as a soldier in the British Army. Peanuts, as she is nicknamed, is the girlfriend of another soldier in the platoon, and they become unlikely friends. Just before a tour of Belfast, where he is involved in a RPG attack, his mate Lofty asks him to look after and post some letters to his friends and family should he die whilst away. If you like Andy McNab, this isn't the book for you; however Bridget Jones readers will learn to love Den (or want to strangle him at times), as he becomes a man in the 21st century. A great book for military virgins who know soldiers must be part human.
This is Shannon and Rob's first novel. They live in Chertsey Surrey with teenagers and a small fluffy dog. Both keen walkers and adventurists, they also like tea.
