• Happy Publication Day🍾🎉

    Happy Publication Day Isabella May! 📖🍾

    Another scrumptious story to tickle your tastebuds and humour simultaneously as you escape to Sunny Spain to see two couples tie the knot and inadvertently share a cake!
    Fantastic characters in some hilarious situations, it’s a fun filled romp that will keep you entertained throughout the story. It was wonderful catching up with some old friends from Isabella’s other books ( although this gorgeous book can be read as a stand-alone) and I’m already looking forward to the next book in the series!
    Available on Kindle Unlimited

    My review follows the book blurb 🙂

    The Wedding Cake
    Isabella May
    Book 📖 blurb 💒👰🏻‍♀️🤵🏻🍾

    One steamy summer in Spain. One accidentally double-booked eight-tier wedding cake that needs to put in a same day appearance at a rustic countryside finca AND a beachside villa. Two brides. Two grooms. Hundreds of hungry guests.

    FREYA ASHCROFT, owner and culinary whizz at Marbella’s five star bakery (and general queen of dating disasters), is going to need a miracle to save this date. If only that was her sole dilemma. She’s also fallen head over heels in love with super hot fitness instructor, TIM NUTKINS… and his rippling abs.

    Which would be fine, if he wasn’t one of her aforementioned male clients.

    A forced proximity rollercoaster of a forbidden love romance with a sweet happy-ever-after.

    My 🍾🍾🍾🍾🍾 review

    Such a delicious read!
    So so happy to be reunited with some old friends from Isabella’s earlier books. I also loved the new characters, Tim was a saint for coping with Piper’s over the top demands and outrageous behaviour! Freya was brilliant too, I adored the cake making descriptions and her positive outlook on life.
    Some hilarious moments in a gorgeous setting, it was a fun and refreshing summer story.
    Now I am desperate to go on my own jaunt to Spain 🇪🇸 and experience some of the scrumptious food that is mentioned throughout the story.

    Happy Publication Day D. Wells! 📖🍾🥂

    Such an adorable uplifting book!
    From the first few pages, I was hooked. I would love to have a bookshop, so this book really caught my interest. A gorgeous community feel throughout the emotional story and some fantastic characters are introduced too. I’m already looking forward to returning to this fantastic setting in the next book.

    Where Our Paths Meet
    D Wells

    Book 📖 blurb 📚

    Evelyn Storford has returned home.

    Buying a failing independent bookshop, and nursing a broken heart, she relishes the challenge to make her business successful in the sleepy Suffolk town of Taverton. With her bookshop colleagues and widower father a growing presence in her life, she grapples against the memories of her marriage and the lingering feelings towards estranged husband Ishmael.

    A story about family and friendship, grief and love, Where Our Paths Meet introduces a collection of characters, all interlinked and facing various crossroads in their lives.

    My 📚📚📚📚📚 review

    This was a gorgeous heartfelt book, the characters touched my heart with their personal stories, and I loved the way their experiences became interwoven as the story expanded.
    I’m a sucker for a story based in a book store, and I enjoy seeing characters take a chance on following their dreams. Who doesn’t like seeing others succeed?
    The setting was also lovely, the community feel was wonderful, I loved seeing the community come together to support each other, it helped make this a joyful and uplifting experience.
    I am looking forward to returning to this fantastic community again, to discover what other tales are to be told of the inhabitants of Taverton.

    A Colourful County Escape
    Anita Faulkner

    Book 📖 blurb 🦚

    FALLING IN LOVE ISN’T ALWAYS SO BLACK AND WHITE . . .

    When vibrant but penniless Lexie is dumped by her posh boyfriend who is looking for a more financially suitable match, she decides to pack up her beloved orange campervan Penny in search of a new path. Stumbling upon a vacancy at a family-run paint company in the Cotswolds, Lexie believes she’s found her perfect match . . .

    Lexie arrives at Nutgrass Hall, home of Carrington Paints, but it seems that owner Benedict Carrington is less than impressed with her arrival, and Lexie realises she’ll have her work cut out for her if she’s to convince stuffy “Beige Ben” to trust her with rescuing his out-of-touch business. But Ben has more on his mind than just the company – his mother is determined to find him a suitable wife worthy of carrying the Carrington family name, or she’ll take the business from him.

    As Lexie sets to work on injecting some life colour into Carrington Paints, Ben allows himself to be set up with Tewkesbury’s finest ladies. But the more time the pair spend together, the more they realise their feelings for each other aren’t so black and white. Will Lexie be able to brighten into Ben’s colourless world before it’s too late?

  • Book review for June First by Jennifer Hartmann

    The book is as beautiful to read as it is to look at…..

    Oh my goodness what a gorgeous story!
    Jennifer Hartmann, you sure know how to pull at my heartstrings!
    Once again I was taken on an emotional roller coaster ride with this intense and exciting book.
    My review follows the book blurb.

    June First
    Jennifer Hartmann

    Book 📖 blurb 🌈 🐘

    Want to know what happens to a man who barely claws his way out of a tragedy, only to fall right into the arms of the one girl in the world he can never have?

    Another tragedy, that’s what.

    When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life.
    Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have.

    In a lot of ways, I did have her…
    I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began.

    Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross.

    They say tragedy comes in threes.
    For me, that was true.
    The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me.

    But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story.
    And at the center of that love story,
    There is June.

  • My Blog Tour Post for The Summer Fair by Heidi Swain

    The Summer Fair, as gorgeous to read as it looks!

    It is my huge pleasure and honour to be able to share my review for Heidi’s latest book release, The Summer Fair.

    I love reading Heidi’s wonderful uplifting books and I feel blessed to be part of her Swainette crew too! Together with Fiona Jenkins, we run the Facebook group Heidi Swain and Friends – A Facebook Book Club, where fans and authors spend time chatting books and making friends along the way! It’s very much like the fabulous friendly communities that Heidi shares in her stories! More about that later……

    My 🪴🪴🪴🪴🪴 review for The Summer Fair

    So brilliant to be back at Nightingale Square!
    I so enjoy visiting this wonderful community and it was fantastic to meet some new fabulous characters too!
    Beth has her issues, banning music from her life because it’s too painful to allow it in. You really feel her emotions and are desperate for things to improve for her. So when she has the opportunity to not only to improve her career, the chance to move away from her despicable housemates into a shared house on Nightingale Square suddenly arrives.
    Only problem is that music and interacting in a close community also comes with the move, so will Beth regret her new life choices?
    I loved the quirky, fun characters that we meet in the care home where Beth works, they add a sense of fun and it was marvellous to see how Beth grew a special community within the home.
    Eli has his own issues, however he brings back music to Beth and slowly makes her start believing in herself and so she starts to allow it back into her life.
    For me the themes of music and it’s importance for your mental health and as a way to express yourself was really important and something I completely could relate with.
    Heartwarming and uplifting, I enjoyed every page, character and setting in this beautiful book.

    Book 📖 blurb 💐

    Beth loves her job working in a care home, looking after its elderly residents, but she doesn’t love the cramped and dirty house-share she currently lives in. So, when she gets the opportunity to move to Nightingale Square, sharing a house with the lovely Eli, she jumps at the chance.
     
    The community at Nightingale Square welcomes Beth with open arms, and when she needs help to organise a fundraiser for the care home they rally round. Then she discovers The Arches, a local creative arts centre, has closed and the venture to replace it needs their help too – but this opens old wounds and past secrets for Beth.
     
    Music was always an important part of her life, but now she has closed the door on all that. Will her friends at the care home and the people of Nightingale Square help her find a way to learn to love it once more…?

    It Started with A Kiss
    Lisa Hobman

    Book 📖 blurb 🎤📷

    Can two strangers’ dreams lead to their destiny?

    American Star Mendoza is living in her dream location, Edinburgh, a place she discovered in British novels while growing up.

    Employed at a trendy city centre coffee shop, quirky, pink-haired Star spends her days fantasising about a handsome businessman she serves daily.

    He’s totally out of her league but a girl can dream, right?

    Fin Hunter is exhausted from striving for his father’s elusive love and approval, and of following a life path of his family’s making.

    When things go drastically wrong Fin decides it’s time to stand on his own two feet and follow his own dream.

    Star is bereft when her handsome stranger stops coming to her coffee shop, but a chance encounter in the most unlikely of places leaves her wondering if her fantasy could now become a reality?

    Can opposites attract over their love of a city and music or is their story simply doomed to fail?

    My 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 review

    Such a brilliant book! Completely fell in love with Fin, who could resist a gorgeous Scottish rock singer?
    Actually both characters were adorable, Star especially caught my attention, I loved her individuality and outlook on life.
    Such a sweet story and set in a wonderful place. A pleasure to read from start to finish!

    Love Blooms at Mermaids Point
    Sarah Bennett

    Book 📖 blurb 🧜🏻‍♀️
    Bestselling author Alex Nelson is slowly coming apart at the seams after a failed marriage and an abrupt change in career leave him at a crossroads in life. When an unexpected opportunity arises to escape to the idyllic village of Mermaids Point, he’s hot on the heels of his brother, Tom, who has recently moved there. Buying a rundown bookshop might be just his latest harebrained scheme, but Alex has never been one to do things by halves.

    After spending her early years caring for her mother, Ivy Fisher is finally ready to start living her own life. But when the impossibly charming, impossibly good-looking Alex Nelson swoops in and snatches her dream out from under her nose, it really is the last straw. Forced by circumstances to spend more time with him, Ivy finally gets a peek of the real man beneath the confident exterior, and she likes what she sees.

    But just when things are starting to come together for them, Ivy is reminded why men can never be trusted. Is Alex who he says he is, or is he using Mermaids Point as nothing more than research fodder for his next bestseller?

    Enjoy a gloriously uplifting, page-turning, romantic escape to the seaside with the bestselling author Sarah Bennett. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Milly Johnson.

    An emotional time for Ivy, following the passing of her mum, it was lovely to see the inhabitants rally round to look after her. The fledgling relationship between Ivy and Alex was so addictive to follow! It’s was fabulous to see them connect and be there for each other.
    Beautiful setting, adorable characters and a few twists along the way kept me hugely entertained.
