Sophie's Run Tour


Come on Tour with Sophie and Dan… “Ich hab noch einen Koffer in Berlin” (I left a suitcase in Berlin)
Sophie’s Run Blogtour 2013

Her famous star remains her rock while life takes her on a little detour… Who says that the road towards true love is straight and even? Sophie is certainly discovering that it is anything but. So she has finally found the man of her dreams! Well… she knows who he is, even though she hasn’t actually quite met him yet. But she misses her opportunity, and then her life goes crazy. Rock star and ex-fiancé, Dan, keeps getting in the way of her new romance—even if he is just trying to be helpful. A fire, an impromptu mini-trip with Dan, and a dreaded wedding later, Sophie is still struggling to meet the love of her life. Then, just as she is getting it together with her perfect man, best friend Rachel commits an act of unspeakable betrayal. Sophie has had enough. Confused and distraught, she decides that it is time for radical change. Surprising herself and shocking her friends, she embarks on a secret journey and eventually gets her life back on track.


My Review

I thoroughly enjoyed Sophie's Turn by Nicky Wells so when I the sequel Sophie's Run turned up in my inbox it didn’t take me long to finish my current book and make a start on this book.

Now I loved Sophie’s Turn but Sophie’s Run has just blown Sophie’s Turn out of the water. This book exceeded my expectations, I really enjoyed meeting Sophie again and I wondered what direction Sophie’s love life was going to take next.

As ever Sophie’s life is like a rollercoaster this woman seems to attract trouble! The story starts off with a bang in more ways than one when there is a terrible accident at Sophie’s party which results in her having to move in with Dan. Yes that is right the sexy rock god is back! I actually warmed to Dan's character more in this book. All the way through this book I was waiting to turn the page to the part where their romance rekindles again.

Although the book is a carry on from Sophie’s Turn I do think you could read this as a stand-alone book as the author often recaps on situations that occurred in the previous book. Having said that if you get a chance to read the first book in the series then please do as you really get to know the characters well in the first book.

The book is full of romance and a splash of humor and what I also loved was that the book wasn’t predictable in fact everything that I thought would happen or wouldn’t happen surprised me because my thoughts were completely wrong.

This was a lovely easy read that any of you who enjoyed Sophie’s Turn will LOVE. 




Hi! My name is Nicky Wells, and I am the author of Sophie’s Run, Part 2 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy. There is quite a bit of travelling going on in this novel, and one of the places I took Sophie and Dan this time round was Berlin. Berlin is one of my favourite cities and here are some of the best sights. Sophie will tell you more about what she and Dan got up to as well ~ Have fun!

Over to Sophie Penhalligan, heroine of Sophie’s Run Sophie: *waves* Hello, everybody!

Wow, isn’t this awesome… I’m so glad I can take you along to some of these places I’ve been to with Dan. Today, I want to show you a little bit of Berlin. I had such a great time over there, I left a suitcase in Berlin (I didn’t, actually, but that’s how the old German saying goes, meaning you can… nay, must, go back!).

Dan took me on a little mini trip lately, and it’s all in Sophie’s Run. Here’s a little taster for you… “Where to now?” I questioned him when we were safely and, at least temporarily incognito, on one of the cute little underground trains. Dan flicked through his book. “We should really take in the Wall and the Reichstag…” he offered, but added reluctantly, “but I don’t fancy that today. How’s about…” He held up his children’s guide book at a page saying, Alexanderplatz and TV Tower. I nodded agreeably. It was his trip after all, and this looked quite exciting.

Sophie: And the next day…. “Good day for a boat trip, don’t you reckon?” I nodded eagerly. Boat trips were quite my thing. We could sit on the top deck and quaff some wine or even champagne. I would buy, of course, it being Dan’s birthday. It would be delightful. “Is this the Wannsee?” I contemplated aloud. “It certainly is,” Dan confirmed happily, and ushered me out of the taxi.

Sophie: Yeah, well, the boat trip. A bit of a disaster, really. Dan didn’t quite have the same thing in mind as me. Did I mention I don’t do rowing, you know, with actual oars? Anyway, if you want to know what else we got up to in Berlin and quite a few other places… well, it’s all in Sophie’s Run! Happy reading, and it’s very nice to meet you.

    1. Hi Sue ~ you definitely should. There's a slogan in German that says that Berlin is always worth a trip, even if you've been there lots of times. There's so much to do and see... (Can you tell I fell in love with the place?) Anyway, thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed the post. XX
