The Little Things
Bookreview / July 21, 2018

I have actually blogged about this book before right here but it has now been republished with a different cover. The story is still the same, it’s only the cover that has changed. The story was already heartbreaking in 2015, but in 2018 it is just as heartbreaking. I just could not finish this story without a few tears in my eyes, and that means it is a very good story. Joel is gay, but a one night drunken affair with his best friend makes him a father and he loves his little girl Evie very much. Shared custody with Claire makes sure he sees Evie a lot and they are enjoying life. Joel even has a boyfriend Dan, so could life be any better? Then one night misfortune strikes and leaves Evie without a mother and now permanently in the care of Joel, who has to learn to live without his best friend. His relationship with Dan is strained, but he needs to put his daughter first, even before Dan. In the end their relationship cracks and they both decide it is best to separate. So now Joel is alone with his daughter and has to adjust to a new…

Jay Northcote answers questions
Author Interview / April 12, 2016

Now as you all know I absolutely love Jay Northcote. So when I read that she was doing a new cover for her book The Little Things, I had to get to the bottom of it of course.

You can see the old cover for the book on the left of this post, the new cover is further down. I like them both, but I understand the reasons for changing it. But I will let the lady tell her own story. What made you decide a new cover for this book was in order? The Little Things has always been a bit neglected compared to my other titles. It has never sold as well or grabbed readers’ attention. I think the original choice of cover was part of the reason for that. And giving The Little Things a new cover was…

The Little Things
Bookreview / February 8, 2015

The Little Things is a book that really sucked me in when I read it. The story is somewhat different from what you would expect, but from the start it takes you in and demand that you finish it. I really enjoyed it. Joel is a gay man, who got very drunk one night and spend the night with a woman. From that one night, Evie was born, his very own little girl that he would do anything for. Luckily the girls mother and Joel get along great and they share custody of Evie. Joel’s boyfriend Dan completes the picture and makes Joel feel very happy in his life. Then one night something terrible happens and Joel is forced to become a full time father to Evie. Dan decides he never signed up for this and they break up. But then in a night of despair Joel meets Liam, a nurse in the local hospital and a very nice guy. Slowly Joel starts to see there is room for other people in his life, even though he really has to take care of Evie. She is number 1 on his list always. Liam makes no secret of his attraction to…
