Thank you for joining me today on my stop on Serena Clarke's,The Same But Different Blog Tour.
I have a little piece for you to get to know Serena and the book,
but best of all a brilliant music play list that Serena has put together with tracks that inspired her when writing The same but different and tracks also included in it.
I hope you enjoy!
Serena Clarke writes Fun, contemporary romantic fiction that reflects the interconnected, international lives we lead—or dream of. she believes no matter where you are, life can be complicated, but it’s also full of magic, possibility and second chances. And whatever’s happening in your life right now, a bookish adventure (and a happy ending) has got to be good for you!
She grew up in a family of itchy-footed readers and dreamers—not concentrating, reading the atlas and Narnia books, and planning to escape somewhere magical as soon as she could. When she was 16, Serena went from New Zealand to live in Sweden for a year. It was the beginning of many travels and adventures—and quite a few disasters! She didn’t know it at the time, but eventually she’d be grateful for all the ups and the downs. As writers say in the face of adversity: “I can use that.”
Having come full circle, through seven cities in four countries, Serena is now back in New Zealand, she has a tall, dark and handsome husband to help look after their two boys while she dreams up stories.

The Same But Different Blurb:
Stunned by a life-changing secret and an unexpected inheritance, Cady Morrow leaves her responsible London life behind and hits the California flash mob trail. With her wild twin sister Shelby in tow, she’s determined to make every day of her new start count. So when they’re invited to travel on the flash mob team’s luxury tour bus—in close company with Reid, a man who sets her dangerously, deliciously off-kilter—Cady grabs the chance to be a different version of herself.
But she soon discovers that not everyone she encounters is who they seem to be. A complicated new family, unwelcome surprises, and secrets past and present test her faith in her reinvented self, as well as in those around her. And when Shelby goes missing, Cady has to rely on the enigmatic Reid for help, even as she doubts his motives—and her resistance to his teasing charm.
With the flash mob facing disaster, her sister in jeopardy, and things with Reid heating up, Cady realizes that what started as ‘fake it ’til you make it’ has become her reality. And when she finds herself in a life-threatening confrontation, she learns just how different she can really be…and exactly what she’ll do for the sake of a new start.
