She says he’s got five per cent body fat and one per cent brain activity.
He says she’s a foul-mouthed tart.
Meet Faustine and McPherson.

Faustine is terrified of responsibility and never wants kids. She lives in New York filling her time with dead-end jobs and high-end stimulants but when she hears that Beech Wood Rise is about to be flattened, she sobers up and heads home to England. The ancient woodland holds her only memories of her dead mother and she’s going to fight every step of the way to stop the land developer.
McPherson is the land developer. He never wants kids because he believes he’s inherited his father’s violent temper. Having been evicted from his home as a child, McPherson’s mission is to build low-cost housing for the poor. And Beech Wood Rise is his next project.
Oscar, 9, has been taken from his crack-head mum in London and placed with his aunt in the countryside while Child Services find him a foster home. Oscar dislikes his aunt and takes up residence in the abandoned tree-house on Beech Wood Rise.
Suddenly, Oscar’s peace is shattered.
Oscar watches the battle between Faustine and McPherson with a spectator’s enthusiasm, while fanning the flames of war. Yet he knows his days of freedom are numbered. Rather than go into foster care, he plans to do a disappearing act.
When Faustine and McPherson discover that Oscar is not a middle-class brat dodging piano practice but an emotionally traumatised reject who is about to run away, they declare a temporary ceasefire as they try to save him.
What they don’t know is: all their careful plans to stay child-free are about to be challenged.
Oscar has decided that Faustine and McPherson would make great parents. HIS parents.
Now all he has to do is make them fall in love.

Wow, I absolutely loved this novel and I didn’t want it to end.

A romcom story with great dialogue that makes you spontaneously laugh out loud and then it rips at your heart leaving you a crumpled mess, then your emotions are soaring high again.  It was so clever of the author, Alison Brodie, to bring laughter to a story that held a serious, sensitive subject to the crux of the storyline.

Faustine couldn’t believe her luck when she’d won the big modelling contract but then her heart sank a little when she learn’t that she had to now portray a certain elegant image.  She thought one last binge wouldn’t hurt then she’d do all she could to maintain the appropriate image for the mega bucks pay packet.  However, a plea of help from her sister to save the sacred trees near her ancestral home back in England may scupper her new image.

Property developer McPherson had set his sights on building a new housing development in a sleepy village in the Cotswolds.  He had a dream to make affordable housing and his aim was to bring families from inner cities to his idyllic location and let them feel and see the countryside all the time.  His dream was being hampered by local protestors appealing against his proposal hoping to save the ancient woodland which included the magnificent old tree lovingly named Old Bob by the locals.  He now had dwellers living in the tree which had been temporarily turned into a makeshift treehouse.  A young boy and woman were residing in the tree but McPherson felt no threat from them.  Little did he know that the woman residing the treehouse had a history with the tree and emotions were running high.

Faustine’s mission was to stay in the tree till the protestors won the appeal.  This tree Old Bob held so many childhood memories for Faustine and it hurt her deeply to think that someone could quite easily chop it down.  The young boy helping Faustine with her protest was Oscar.  A very street wise lad from London that was currently staying with his Aunt nearby whilst his mum was recovering from her drug addiction in rehab.  Through his bravado you could sense a vulnerability within Oscar and the more Faustine got to know him the more she realised he needed her help.  Faustine had never felt maternal but she felt a kinship with this child and with the unexpected help from the developer McPherson the adults strove to help young Oscar as much as they could.  Unbeknown to the adults young Oscar was plotting to bring the temporary warring adults together.

This was such a wonderful story full of warmth and good humour.  Alison Brodie had injected some sizzling sexual chemistry within the story and I felt that the shared love of the countryside was soon spreading it’s magic to our warring couple.  It felt like Old Bob was an anchor pulling all three main characters together; Oscar, Faustine and McPherson each had a part to play in helping one another.  A funny, sexy, heartfelt story cleverly blending around a serious issue.  5/5*

Product Details (as per amazon page)

Twenty-nine-year-old Blair Walker is a girl with a plan, or more a girl with a list. A list of dos and don’ts to live the perfect life, land a dream career, and marry Mr. Right.

But when Blair loses her job and gets dumped by her boyfriend all in one day, she starts to wonder if she’s had it all wrong. And what better way to find out than experience everything the list forbade?

*Never Lie
*Never Pick a Fight
*Never Make a Scene
*Never Make the First Move
*Never Make Impulse Decisions
*Never Mix Business and Pleasure…

With hilarious consequences, Blair will discover some items are trickier to tick off than she’d thought…

I Have Never is a wonderful chick lit beach read and a fabulous office romance. A laugh out loud romantic comedy perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Sophie Kinsella, and Mhairi McFarlane.

First Comes Love is a series of interconnected romantic novels. However, each book in the series can be read as a standalone novel.

blue scroll

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour promoting and celebrating the release of Camilla Isley’s latest book I Have Never.  This is the second book in the First Comes Love series and each book in the series can be read as a standalone but to be honest once you’ve read and enjoyed one of Camilla Isley’s stories you want to read them all.

This is Blair Walker’s story who has lived her life with a list of ‘Never’s’ from advice given to her whilst growing up.  She’s been happy living and abiding with this list but when one day her life starts crumbling around her she decides to rebel against the list.

Our leading lady, Blair, sounded like a vibrant young woman who was career orientated and never lost the sights of her dream as a Fashion Editor for a magazine.  Blair was initially taken in by the glossy images of the upmarket offices and of her peers at Evoque Magazine but when she takes a step back and has a closer look revealing the ugly warts of the business she thinks again about her dream.  Appearances definitely are deceiving.  I instantly fell for the charms of our leading man who had a vulnerability about him.  With the introduction of a stray lost puppy the story took on another dimension and both leading characters were softened by this lovable furry friend.

With Blair rebuilding her life and defying against the list and accidentally falling secretly in love with her new boss Camilla Isley has written us a gloriously, fun filled romance.  I loved it!

’The day I turned 28, I bought a lighthouse and met the love of my life’

Bobbie Hannigan’s life in a cottage by the sea with her dog and her twin sister is perfectly fine … until she decides the logical thing is to buy a lighthouse and open a music venue with Ross Mason, the first boy she ever kissed.

Bobbie tries to be professional with Ross, but the happily-ever-after they’re working toward is too good to resist. That is until someone from his past crawls back to cause trouble. Can Bobbie look past the secrets Ross has been keeping from her? Or will the boy, the lighthouse, and the dream all slip away?

lighthouse and beam of light

When you fall in love with a story in a book it seems to make your whole world glow that little bit brighter and this is just how I feel about this story by Mary Jayne Baker.

Set in a little village on the Yorkshire coast a story to make your heart swell with love and pride for a couple that not only let love into their hearts but they gave up their spare time, cash and much more to turn a derelict building into an inspirational place to nurture music for all in the local community.

Bobbie Hannigan and her twin sister have lived in the small coastal village all their life.  During a night out when Bobbie catches the eye of the singer from the band playing at the local pub and then realising he is non other than Ross Mason, the first boy she ever kissed back in school.  Ten years gone and Ross has matured very nicely and reminiscing over the past the pair decide to buy a lighthouse and bring it back to it’s former glory and more turning it into a place of creativity encouraging new music talent; a dream that Ross has held for a while.

We follow the couple on their journey jumping through hoops with the restoration project.  We also follow Bobbie and Ross’ personal journey of moving on from traumas and broken hearts in the past.

The lighthouse proves to be a beacon of light of love, hope and inspiration.

A wonderful story filled with Yorkshire charm, wit and warmth.  Characters to fall in love with and to champion.  A story that is deliciously sexy and so romantic.  A story you want to shine brightly for a long time 5/5*

The Second Chance Café in Carlton Square by Lilly Bartett book review

second chance cafe in carlton square

The Second Chance Café in Carlton Square written by Lilly Bartlett, publisher HarperImpulse is available in ebook format NOW.

To buy link:

Product Details (as per amazon page)

One chance isn’t always enough…

Everyone expects great things from Emma Billings, but when her future gets derailed by an unexpected turn of events, she realizes that getting back on track means traveling in a different direction.

She finds that new path in the closed-down pub on Carlton Square. Summoning every ounce of ingenuity, and with the help of her friends and family, she opens the Second Chance Café. The charity training business is meant to keep vulnerable kids off the streets and (hopefully) away from the Metropolitan Police, and her new employees are full of ideas, enthusiasm … and trouble. They’ll need as much TLC as the customers they’re serving.

This ragtag group of chancers have to make a go of a business they know nothing about, and they do get some expert help from an Italian who’s in love with the espresso machine and a professional sandwich whisperer who reads auras, but not everyone is happy to see the café open. Their milk keeps disappearing and someone is canceling the cake orders, but it’s when someone commits bloomicide on all their window boxes that Emma realizes things are serious. Can the café survive when NIMBY neighbors and the rival café owner join forces to close them down? Or will Emma’s dreams fall as flat as the cakes they’re serving?

bunting

This was such a delight to read.  The Second Chance Café in Carlton Square is book 2 in the Carlton Square series but can easily be read as a standalone, as proven by myself as of yet book 1, The Big Little Wedding on Carlton Square, is still waiting patiently on my kindle.

Emma has had an awful lot of big events happen to her over the last two years; marriage, giving birth to twins and now she is planning to open up her own café.  Emma is one ambitious lady but when she saw the empty pub on the square she just knew what to do with it.  She also wanted the opportunity to open up doors for young, vulnerable people, give them a helping hand in life.  A chance to show them a trade and teach them new skills to help them move on in life in the right direction.  Interviewing candidates for her first two trainees was to prove an eye opening experience for Emma but she looked further from the first impressions and hoped her gut instincts were accurate.

Renovating the property sounded like a lot of hard work especially with the young toddlers but her family were wonderful support to Emma.  The big opening day of the café arrives and you can feel the nerves of anticipation from Emma.  Will she have any customers, can they fathom out how to work the posh coffee machine?  Of all the obstacles that have come Emma’s way in making the café a success she didn’t expect to be sabotaged by a rival café.  Gathering evidence to prove this was difficult and the café looks doomed before it even gets properly started.

Lilly Bartlett has created wonderful sub characters in this story with a wide array of colourful individuals which all work harmoniously, albeit with a few bumps, together.  I’d love to read more on some of these characters and hope in future stories they may take centre stage.

With her busy life as new mum, new business owner her own relationship was surely going to face a few challenges with Emma and her husband Daniel having to adjust to new routines.

I loved the sound of this café and could imagine it with my own eyes with the author’s description.  A wonderful community of old and young coming together over tea and cake.  Sounds rather perfect to me!  Delightful and entertaining radiating warmth and hopefulness.

About the Author

Lilly Bartlett’s cosy romcoms are full of warmth, quirky characters and guaranteed happily-ever-afters. Lilly is the pen-name of Sunday Times and USA Today best-selling author, Michele Gorman, who writes best friend-girl power comedies under her own name.

Product Details (as per amazon page)

Quaint Lewis Cove is home to the charming three-story Victorian manor known as the Alice Wilshire Lending Library and its plucky librarian Peg Turner: the current hostess of the weekly Bronte Book Club, better known as the ‘Hopeless Romantics’ of all ages. Nurse Annette has been too busy working for love; mechanic Tim has missed the boat somewhere in his past; art student Sophie comes off as too unique, while tech geek C.J. has fallen—hopelessly—for the too-cool-to-care Llourdes.

With her vacation plans indefinitely on hold for the summer, Peg has decided to transform the ‘Hopeless Romantics’ into hopeful ones. But while she’s trying to help her fellow readers find romance, she’s avoiding her matchmaker friend Caroline’s latest blind date—only to see her best friend Cam, the ruggedly-cute-but-sometimes-curmudgeonly coffee shop owner fixed up instead. And that’s something Peg isn’t sure she likes.

Questions about love and last chances on her mind, and way too many books piled on her desk, will Peg succeed in finding romantic hope for anyone, including herself?

I am so pleased to be involved in the Release Day Blitz celebrating the release of The Bronte Book Club for Hopeless Romantics.  The novella is the first in a new series by Laura Briggs.

About the author:

Laura Briggs is the author of several women’s fiction and chick lit novels, with themes that range from wedding planning to modern Jane Austen. Even though she tends to write stories with a romance theme, as a reader she has a soft spot for mysteries, including those by Agatha Christie and Mary Roberts Rinehart. She also enjoys books by Jane Austen, Anne Tyler, Amy Tan, and too many others to name. In her free time, she likes to experiment with new recipes and tries to landscape her yard (a never-ending project).

I’m delighted to share a short extract:

“Evening everybody!” Caroline breezed into the coffee shop in her usual manner. She pulled off her summer scarf and dropped her shopping bags on the floor as she sat down at our table. “Did you see the repair work they’re doing on the highway? I had to cut across Ocean Lane in Valencia to get here from the city.”

 Next to Stacy — and Cam — Caroline was my oldest friend in Lewis Cove. We had known each other in college; now she worked as a realtor with an office closer to the metropolis than town, and believed firmly that one’s social life should never slow down, no matter the time of day or the fatigue one might be feeling.

“Just a cup of black coffee for me, and a low-cal snack,” she said to Cam. “What’s with the book?” Her gaze fell on the copy of Jane Eyre.

 “It’s mine,” I said. “I’m trying to recruit new members for the book club.”

 “Was that tonight?” said Caroline. “Is that why you said ‘no’ to going out with Greg’s friend tonight?” Greg was Caroline’s current boyfriend — his friend was a blind date setup I had been stealthily avoiding for two weeks.

 “A date?” said Cam. “You’re dating again?” He looked at me.

 “For the record, I was never not dating,” I clarified. “I just haven’t met anybody with whom the interest is mutual. Not in awhile, anyway.”

 “To qualify as ‘dating,’ you have to go out with them,” said Caroline. “Not just say you’re going to do it sometime, then keep giving them excuses for why you’re not available.”

 “Those aren’t excuses, Caroline, those are reasons,” I said. “Friday nights, I’m always at the book club. I’m the librarian, I have to be there to unlock the door and let them in.”

 “So? Get them to meet somewhere else. They can meet in Cam’s coffee shop. Lots of atmosphere and great beverages.”

 “The music will drive them out,” said Cam, placing a low-fat granola bar in front of her. “I’m instituting an ‘all rock and roll, all the time’ policy come Monday.”

 I hid my smile for this answer. “Besides, I like the club,” I continued. “I like being part of their meetings.”

 “The Hopeless Romantics?” said Caroline. “There’s a reason why it has that nickname, Paige. They’re people who can’t find the right person because they’re too picky, or because they’re too blind to see the right person when it’s right in front of them. You are not hopeless — and you’re definitely not a fully-fledged romantic.”

“I have a romantic streak,” I said. “And it’s mean to call them hopeless just because they have a lot of free time and no romantic ties. They’re just trying to spend an evening with people they have something in common with. That’s the whole point of the club — an exchange of mutual ideas on literature.”

 “Will you exchange mutual ideas with Greg’s friend next week?” she asked me.

 “Maybe,” I said. “I’ll call him. We’ll find an evening we’re both free.” From behind the counter, Cam coughed noisily. I wondered if he had tried a bite of the low-fat granola bars he kept on hand for calorie-conscious customers.

 Caroline leaned forward and lowered her voice. “Speaking of dating,” she said, “I have the perfect person for Cam.” She glanced to the side, making sure he was busy with a new customer.

 Did I mention Caroline is an obsessive matchmaker, too?

I look forward to sharing my review soon …

Crowley soon returns to Grace looking for her help so he can cross over.  He just needs to complete a task that will have a positive effect on her life. Unfortunately, neither knows where to start! Help comes in the form of her landlord, her elderly neighbour, her gay best friend, a good looking American and Frank Sinatra! Can Grace help Crowley be with his family? Can she get her own life back on track?

rolleiflex camera

Is our life in the hands of fate or destiny?  This was such a wonderful debut novel by Estelle Maher that I feel quite privileged to have read.  The cover is strikingly simple and perfect for the storyline and is quite mesmerising with its swirls and tones of blue.  I do love a good romance and this was such an unusual storyline for a romance, a storyline filled with paranormal activities that are utterly charming in a quintessential way and I was hooked from the start.

Grace Hammond on her way home from work comes across a tramp called Crowley and has a brief conversation with him.  The next day he is sadly found dead but Crowley returns to Grace looking for assistance from her to help him carry on in his journey.  Grace is quite alarmed but seeing Crowley all cleaned up and dressed impeccably she is soon charmed by him and a friendship of trust and companionship is soon formed.

Grace and Crowley’s journey helping each other is filled with much emotion.  Estelle Maher has cleverly interwoven wit and humour with sadness and your tears  are soon dried out with a heart full of warmth.  You feel yourself falling in love with Crowley, his history is so heart breaking but he is taking this new journey in his life in his stride and is literally having a ball.  The connection he has made with Grace is beautiful and you feel that destiny has definitely pulled them together.  Along the journey we meet Grace’s friends the cantankerous Mrs Mortimer who is now in her 80’s and has lived in the village a good while.  Grace has formed a wonderful friendship with Mrs Mortimer and they share many happy times over a cup of tea.  Mrs Mortimer was to provide Grace with many positive attributes for the future including her very handsome American nephew Todd.  I adored Sean, Grace’s gay bff, he was vivacious and irresistible also I believe every village should have their own Big Mick and Patsy duo act.  The small village that Grace lives in sounds very charming and idyllic with it’s mix match of characters who all become united when one of their own is in need of help.  This soon becomes evident and it was really humbling to read about this community spirit.

This was a truly wonderful debut story and had me laughing and crying and left me swooning over a ghost called Crowley.  I look forward to more from Estelle Maher in the future.

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

Product Details (as per amazon page)

Eve has a glittering career, a loving husband and a future. But a terrible twist of fate means she loses it all, and with nowhere left to turn she flees to her Aunt Mary’s home in Cornwall. The last thing on her mind is romance – until she meets Jack.

Jack has seen the worst things people can do to each other and realised he is better off alone. He settles in Conwenna Cove, and saves his affections for the rescue dogs he cares for. But when Eve arrives in the village he can’t deny his attraction to her.

Eve and Jack are both scared to trust, but when they come together it’s impossible for either to ignore their feelings. Can they put their fear aside and learn to love again?

Summer at Conwenna Cove blog tour 2

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Darcie Boleyn’s latest novel, Summer at Conwenna Cove.  This was such a delightful read that I devoured and didn’t want to end.  This is my first introduction to the work of Darcie Boleyn and I’m not really sure why I haven’t read her work before now as her blueprint to writing are stories that I just love.

Darcie Boleyn has written a wonderful, romantic novel with lots of depth and character and including a gorgeous four legged friend, a rescue greyhound called Gabe, made the story even more charming and heart warming.  I do believe animals bring out different sides to people’s personalities and also very often the characteristics of an animal can reflect with the personality of a human.

Eve is a young, highly successful headteacher in a secondary school in the city of Bristol.  Ever since graduating Eve has worked hard to achieve her career goals.  But with the demands of a headship and personal heartbreak catching up with Eve her health starts to suffer and when it all comes to a head quite unexpectedly at work Eve is forced to take a step back and let her body and mind heal.  The only place where Eve feels she can truly relax and take stock of her life is at Conwenna Cove, Cornwall where her aunt lives.

Eve is a little hesitant to how her unexpected visit to Cornwall will be accepted as she hasn’t been the best of nieces recently.  Life’s struggles have definitely taken over Eve’s life and keeping in touch with her loved ones haven’t been high up on her agenda.  Eve is welcomed with open arms at the quaint, idyllic sounding cottage residing in the village of Conwenna Cove.  The cottage has a wonderful sea view and the fresh sea air and homemade  food made by her Aunt Mary could be the tonic that Eve needs.

Since the last time Eve was in Cornwall Aunty Mary has acquired a tenant in her adjoining cottage.  A hulk of a man called Jack who doesn’t take too kindly of this niece of Mary’s turning up after so long being away.  Jack has found solitude in Conwenna Cove himself after being injured during a tour of duty in Afghanistan, the ex-Royal Marine has suffered both physically and mentally.  Eve and Jack clash a little at first but with a little match making from Aunty Mary Eve and Jack are forced to find out more about each other.

Will Conwenna Cove be the saving grace for Eve as it has been for Jack?

A wonderful, charming story that was a delight to read.  5/5*
