Today on my blog as part of the paperback publication celebrations, I am sharing my review for Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

Happy Friday everyone, I hope your all looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend! This afternoon I am sharing my review for Fifty Fifty courtesy of Orion Publishing.

My Review

What a read, I was so excited to see this was available to request on Netgalley as I loved reading Thirteen and couldn’t wait to get stuck in. I am loving the Eddie Flynn series and I read this one over a couple of nights as I just couldn’t put it down.

Another brilliant storyline, following Eddie Flynn in this latest court room drama. I read with baited breathe anticipating the upcoming twists that make these stories such compelling reading. I loved the pace and found I was wide awake late into the night as I wanted to know what happened next!

Throughout this book I couldn’t tell whether Sofia or Alexandra killed their Dad, I loved discussing the story trying to workout which of the sisters were actually guilty.

Steve Cavanagh is quickly becoming a goto author as his books just capture you and make you want to keep reading, I eagerly await his next release and the chance to spend more time with Eddie Flynn.

Take a trip to Cornwall today with my review for Return to Cornwall by Laura Briggs #blogtour #returntocornwall #rachelsrandomresources @rararesources @paperdollwrites

I love a trip to Cornwall and today I am sharing my review for Return to Cornwall. I have previously read Laura Briggs books after discovering them on a blog tour and jumped at the chance to read and review this one.

My Review

Set in a Cornish castle, I loved visiting friends old and new reading this story. Julianne and Kitty are wonderful characters who are hoping to expand to their event planner business further by planning their best event to date.
The attention to detail in this story for the wedding they are planning is amazing, it covers the big and smaller details and is so realistic you can visualise the effect they are trying to achieve.
I really enjoyed the historical references in the story. The explanations were great and I learnt about the process of an archaeological dig and found it fascinating.
A story I really enjoyed reading, it was packed full of detail with lots going on throughout. I loved meeting all these lovely characters and their families again and had forgotten how much I loved this coastal location.

A wonderful love story with a few curve balls thrown in along the way, I really hope that Laura decides to write another one with these fantastic characters in the future.

Book Blurb

The sequel novel to the best-selling UK series A WEDDING IN CORNWALL brings new surprises, romance, humor, and wedding bells, to readers who fell in love with the first stories.

Busy mother of two Julianne Rose has extended her talents beyond the manor house, opening her own event planning agency with the help of no-nonsense best friend Kitty. Balancing the chaos of daily life with their respective careers in their beloved Cornish village means Julianne can rarely snatch a romantic moment with handsome husband Matt. And just when it seems things couldn’t get any more chaotic, a sudden arrival at Cliffs House lands Julianne in the most unusual event of her career.

The reappearance of Percy or ‘the old earl’ after years of adventures abroad has temporarily shocked Lord William and Lady Amanda and set the entire village abuzz with gossip. Grizzled, spry, and delightfully eccentric, he’s returned with a most unusual set of traveling companions: an archaeological team digging in a spot whispered to have ties with the legendary Camelot. But it’s Percy’s ties with a certain charming woman among its team that has everyone taken by surprise, along with the news of their soon-to-be nuptials.

Tasked with planning the big day, Julianne and Kitty spring at this opportunity despite its rushed timeline and their own woes regarding the renovation of their future event space. But as the big day rolls closer for the earl and his bride-to-be – with cakes and wedding flowers competing with pottery shards and an ancient warrior chieftain’s grave for attention — are there still surprising revelations to come?

Adding to the excitement is the return of former Cliffs House maid Gemma, whose posh new life as a novelist may not be all it seems … and Dinah visits in a flurry of festive baking for a holiday competition on everyone’s favorite baking show. Kitty’s life is in a tizz regarding both family and secrets … and Julianne’s happy marriage is challenged by an unwelcome sexy-and-persistent suitor among the summer visitors.

Filled with old friends, new adventures, and heartwarming Cornish charm, RETURN TO CORNWALL is an all-new, full-length novel—the first one ever to feature the characters from the original series!
