I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of book five in The Little Duck Pond Café series by Rosie Green.

This was such a delicious treat to return to The Little Duck Pond Café and it will leave you diving for the cake tin! Although each novella can be read as a standalone story I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order to fully appreciate each character and their story.

Rosie Green has created a lovely feel-good mini series with The Little Duck Pond Café and each novella focuses on one of the main characters story however, with A Bakery at the Little Duck Pond Café we are introduced to two new characters, Kate and Madison, who are both interested in the Bakery Assistant vacancy at Ellie’s new bakery that is attached to her café.  Kate is the main focus of this story and she’s still having doubts whether she wants this job but when she sees the bakery for the first time she soon falls in love with it and starts to think that this may be the new beginning that she needs.

Kate has had a traumatic childhood that she tried so hard to keep hidden from her loved ones.  But her heart has been battered recently and she’s still grieving over her late mother.  Worried over her past she develops a new persona to protect herself but she soon starts worrying that her past will catch up with her.

I loved the introduction of some new characters and I warmed to Kate instantly, her back story was quite heart-breaking and you are willing her to overcome these emotional scars.

As we read each new instalment in the series we grow to love the Duck Pond and the locals more and more.  Delightful, fun and just lovely.

About the Author

Home is where the heart is…
Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.

But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.

With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…

Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!

Coming Home To Wishington Bay

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Push for Maxine Morrey’s latest novel: Coming Home to Wishington Bay.  Firstly I’d like to say a great big Happy Publication Day to Maxine Morrey.  This is only the second book I’ve read by this author and Maxine Morrey is becoming one of my favourite writers.

Coming Home to Wishington Bay is a wonderful story of new beginnings and taking stock of your life and finding your happy place.  It’s also a story of coping with the emotions that grief brings you and of struggling with health concerns.

Holly has been living and working in London for a good while and she’s been forced to take a sabbatical due to increasing worries regarding her mental health.  Holly has committed herself to her career and didn’t think nothing of working regular 12 hour plus days.  She’s also recently broken up from a relationship that has brought mixed emotions of anger, trust and humiliation.  Returning to Wishington Bay on the south-coast to her late Grandmother Gigi’s home Holly hopes that this time away from her London life is enough to get her back on track and to also appease her boss.

Holly didn’t expect her ‘r n r’ to include bumping into her new neighbour, hot doctor Gabe with his rescued ‘hot dog’ Bryan.  After initial confused introductions a friendship soon ensues between Holly and Gabe.  However, Gabe forgot to mention a little ‘white lie’ he told his parents and their friendship soon becomes a little more confused.

I loved the sound of Gigi’s home it sounded so idyllic being on the beachfront and with a small close-knit community of independent businesses in the village.  The blooming relationship between Holly and Gabe was good fun with lots of banter flying between them but you could sense a chemistry behind the cheeky chat.  I loved the interaction between Bryan, the adorable rescued pup, and all the characters it was very endearing and I always think animals bring a softness to characters in a story.

This is a beautiful, romantic story but touches on the subject of serious issues regarding mental health which made the storyline even more relatable.  Coming Home to Wishington Bay is a gorgeous feel-good story that will uplift and charm you.

Book Blurb
Struggling American waitress and aspiring novelist Maisie Clark dreams of becoming a full-time writer — even though in real life she’s just lost her chance at an exclusive writer’s mentorship program that would give her novel its big break. Desperate, she decides to take a chance and ask her favourite writer, a celebrated but reclusive English novelist, to help her find a second chance.

When she receives the author’s reply in an envelope with a Cornish postmark, Maisie decides not to take the writer’s half-hearted ‘no’ for an answer. With nothing to lose, she takes off for the author’s last known location, a beautiful hotel on Cornwall’s western coast. But when the hotel mistakes her for the latest applicant for a maid’s position, Maisie finds herself given an opportunity too good to lose … and a chance for a summer adventure far bigger than she ever imagined.

Surrounded by breathtaking Cornwall and working in an elegant hotel, Maisie’s world becomes one of secret identities, quirky friends, and unintentional mishaps — and despite reminders of past relationship disasters, a certain handsome, charming local resident Sidney Daniels has her conflicted about her heart’s desires, too.

Will Maisie find the chance she’s been waiting for — and a possible new romance — in her perfect Cornish summer?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Laura Briggs latest novella: A Little Hotel in Cornwall.  Firstly, I’d like to wish the author Laura Briggs a Happy Publication Day.  Oh my goodness I adored this novella by Laura Briggs and it’s the start of a brand new book series by her.

A Little Hotel in Cornwall filled me with so much joy and comfort but it also left me inspired for what lay ahead for Maisie and her dreams of becoming a novelist.

Maisie is a literary student from the States and when her dreams of mentorship by an accomplished author hit a ‘snag’ she decides to follow her dreams in an unorthodox way and find her own mentor.  Her favourite author, who’s personal life is filled with mystery and secrecy, lives in the UK and the only clue Maisie as of his whereabouts is the name of a hotel in Cornwall.  Maisie feels she has nothing to lose and much to gain with her Atlantic adventure about to start in a small coastal village in Cornwall.

A Little Hotel in Cornwall was such a delightful start to a new book series.  We soon learn to love our leading lady, Maisie, and are championing her dreams of becoming an author.  Experiencing Cornwall for the first time and this elegant hotel on the hill through the eyes of Maisie was charming and there was a lovely feel of idyllic escapism.  From the developing new friendships and the fun start to Maisie’s new adventure the author Laura Briggs has laid the perfect foundations for readers to be eager for more.

Delightfully charming, fun, romantic and full of feel-good vibes.  Can’t wait for book two!

She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…

Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.

Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.

Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks…

Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.

So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness?

A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Kim Nash’s debut novel: Amazing Grace.

Kim Nash has written a delightful romcom about a single mum, Grace, stepping out of her comfort zone and putting herself first, just a little bit.  I loved Grace’s effervescent friend, Monica, (I think we all need a Monica in our lives), how she initially shook Grace’s life up abit, totally revamping her look and putting her back in the dating game, with very comical results.  I was literally laughing out loud at these scenes that the author had created with some fabulous one-liners that some dates think are perfect to their would-be suitors! 😉

Grace’s morale and self-esteem has taken a little battering since her split from her husband Mark.  With shared custody of their ten year old son, Archie, Grace’s dreams of family life are shattered but Grace tries her best to make her home with her son a happy one.

When Grace opens her heart to let love back in again she’s surprised how different she feels to this new friendship to what she had felt when she was married.  But life is still full of confusing and complicated emotions and Grace’s heart is tested.

I loved how the author added poignant words of wisdom from Grace’s late mother amongst the chapters.  These words were comforting and uplifting.  Having experienced this profound grief myself I totally appreciated the poignancy of these comments and the scenes they were written in.

Amazing Grace is a thoroughly enjoyable story.  It is warm-hearted, fun and so beautifully poignant.

Amazing Grace is such a beautiful, heartfelt debut novel by Kim Nash, I can’t wait to see this author go from strength to strength.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Carol Wyer’s latest romcom: Suddenly Single.

Once again Carol Wyer has written a fabulous romantic comedy with Suddenly Single.  However, amongst all the fun and warmth emanating from the pages the author has injected a serious subject within the storyline that would resonate with many people and Carol Wyer has dealt with this subject with humanity, honesty and empathy.

Recently single Chloe Piper is starting afresh in a new home at a premier new build estate in the Staffordshire hills.  With her loyal four-legged companion, Ronnie, she soon starts to make friends with the neighbours, Eleanor and Fairfax and Alex the foreman of the building project.  Eleanor and Fairfax run an events programme for singletons and Chloe and Alex find themselves invited along.

Chloe has suffered with debilitating anxiety since experiencing a tragedy as a child and she still suffers being in big crowds so going along to a new club is very daunting for her. However, the club was to prove a step in the right direction for Chloe and she soon starts making new friends and achieving small goals to help her self-esteem and anxiety.  But a reminder from her past is never too far behind her and she soon fears for the control that this person had on her.

I loved that I could totally picture the brilliant team building/ice-breaker games that the club had created.  The author has such a great imagination and I could definitely see this story being screened as a perfect romcom movie.  Suddenly Single is full of fun, romance and plenty of feelgood vibes flowing through the story.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Darcie Boleyn’s latest novel: The House at Greenacres.

I always look forward to a new book from Darcie Boleyn as she is one of my favourite authors of feelgood fiction.  This was such a treat of a read and was the perfect story to cosy up with over a weekend … and I did just that!

I instantly fell in love with this stunning location of a hilltop vineyard with coastal and country views in Cornwall.  The whole ethos of the storyline was lovely with a family run business surviving through the generations and with the hope and love and vibrancy of a new generation bringing much life into the company.

Although there was much warmth within the pages there was an underlying sadness of reality that had been inflicted on our characters.  Darcie Boleyn dealt with these sad, tragic and painful times with sensitivity and a true sense of empathy.  I could feel the pain but I could also sense a glimmer of hope in their hearts.

Holly Dryden left her home at the vineyard a year ago after her heart had been broken.  Now returning with more sadness in her heart for the funeral of her dear Grandpa.  However, she’s not alone and she isn’t sure how her welcoming reception in the arms of her family, friends and villagers will take to the arrival of herself and her 3 month old son.

This was a beautiful and charming story and I’m so pleased to learn it is the start of what looks to be a gorgeous new series centred around Penhallow Sands.
