#Review Today I am really excited to share my review for the eagerly awaited second release by Jenni Keer – The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows #MaisieMeadows #BlogBlitz #backablogger #publicationday @rararesources @JenniKeer

The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows

Today I am taking part in the blog blitz for The Unlikely Life of Maisie Meadows. I was so excited to see this book pop up as I loved Lucy Baker and this book did not disappoint Jenni Keer has once again created some superb characters.

Maisie Meadows is a character that needs order in her life and is super organised, as the story progresses you start to see what led to her character traits and how she is constantly trying to remain in control of everything. I absolutely loved Maisie and her complicated family that she is trying in vain to pull back together.

Jenni Keer has a way of pulling you into her writing so you can’t help but keep reading. This story is focused on Maisie trying to reunite her own broken family, whilst embarking on a new career. Where she meets some brilliant people who lead her to rediscover a link to her childhood through Meredith’s tea set that she feels drawn too in a way she can’t explain.

I read this book in just a couple of days and was disappointed when I reached the end as I had fallen in love with the characters so much that I just wanted to keep reading more about them. Another brilliant triumph from Jenni Keer and I am excited to see what comes next as I have absolutely loved Lucy Baker & Maisie Meadows.

 

Book Blurb

When Maisie Meadows finds herself single and jobless on New Year’s Day, she resolves that this will be the year she focuses on bringing her scattered family back together. Romance is all very well, but it’s the people you grew up with that matter the most.

But a new job working at an auction house puts her in the path of Theo, a gorgeous but unattainable man who she can’t help but be distracted by. As their bond begins to grow, Maisie finds herself struggling to fulfil the promise she made to herself – but the universe has other ideas, and it’s not long before the Meadows family are thrown back together in the most unlikely of circumstances…

Can dealing with other people’s treasures help Maisie to let go of the past, and teach her who she ought to treasure the most?

#Review #Blogtour Daisy is joining me on my blog today to share her thoughts on Space Dragons by Robin Bennett #SpaceDragons #YoungReaders #MiddleGrade #Childrensbooks @rararesources @MonsterBooksRaw

Space Dragons.png

Today my daughter Daisy is joining me on my blog to share her thoughts on Space Dragons which she has recently finished reading.

Daisy has just had her 12th birthday so sits in the higher age group for this book which is aimed at 8-12 year olds. She always has a book in her hand and was really excited to receive her copy and get stuck in.

img-20190616-wa00022228114577498239860.jpg

Daisy’s Review

It all started when Stan looked up through his broken telescope and saw Venus’ eye. It’s an amazing story, about dragons that live on the planets of our solar system. The story was about stopping Hades (Pluto) putting the particle of light back to where it belongs and saving Stan’s sister.

My favourite character is Mercury because he’s funny and very talkative.

I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend reading Space Dragons, it was a book that kept me hooked as I wanted to know if Stan would be able to stop Hades and save his sister.

 

Book Blurb

If Stan Pollux had known he would be spending his summer holidays in the outer reaches of our solar system, he would have put on different underpants.

But when he gets kidnapped by the Planet Dragon Mercury, most things suddenly seem small and insignificant. Stan finds himself in a universe of dragons who had once ruled the skies as gods: Mars, Venus, Saturn and even Uranus way out back. This is shaping up to be the best summer holiday in the history of the cosmos until Stan discovers his stupid sister is missing and that Pluto (AKA Hades) is trying to use her to destroy the Solar System. And it will be all Stan’s fault if he doesn’t get Poppy back.

So, all Stan has to do is learn how to fight like a hero in space armour, defeat the dragon god of the Underworld, Hades, rescue his sister and save the world. All before his parents realise she is missing.

#Review Today I am really excited to be taking part in the blog tour for The Ice Cream Parlour by Isabella May #blogtour #backablogger @isabellamaybks @rararesources

The Ice Cream Parlour

Today I am really excited to be taking part in the blog tour for The Ice Cream Parlour, it is a lovely feel good read about the lovely Giovanna and her dreams. Gi is a character you will instantly love, she is full of determination and sass and continues to miss her home country after her family moved when she was a child.

This is the story of Gi embarking on her childhood dream to create her own Ice Cream Parlour after she has a falling out with her family which leads to her being estranged. She starts this process by returning to her home country to sample their flavours to help inspire her own creations of wonderful treats for when she returns to Bath.

I love the food themes that run through Isabella May’s books and was so excited to read this wonderful book. I loved Gi from the first few pages and found that I couldn’t put the book down and that I just had to keep reading to see what was in store next.

The Ice Cream Parlour is my favourite of Isabella May’s books to date, it is full of the drama of families and is brimming with love and dreams with the most amazing  edible creations. A superb read to enjoy in the sunshine with a massive scoop of your favourite ice cream.

 

Book Blurb

Giovanna Tonioli is a successful stockbroker with a famous sports star boyfriend, but things aren’t as sweet as they seem. When life in the city of Bath goes from Vanilla to Rocky Road, she takes herself off to Italy for an ‘Eat Pray Love’ style tour of all things gelateria. What she doesn’t expect to find on her travels is one smooth, hot dollop of temptation that she just can’t shake. 

How will her spiteful twin sister react when Giovanna returns to open a rival ice cream parlour? Will Natalia get her just desserts? Or will things become even stickier? All’s fair in love, war and ice cream. Isn’t it?

*Marian Keyes meets Paulo Coelho meets Nigella*

The Ice Cream Parlour is a mouthwatering tale of fate, family, love and jealousy – with a delectable drizzle of alchemy besides.

#Review – Happy Publication Day to Amanda Prowse – Today I am sharing my review for the superb The Things I Know #TheThingsIKnow #publicationday #backablogger @mrsamandaprowse

Amanda Prowse is one of my absolute favourite authors and I always pick up her books when I am looking for a book to immerse myself into and this book was no exception.

Amanda writes with such passion and relevance her books never fail to pull you in from the first few pages. The Things I Know introduces you to the lovely Thomasina (Hitch), giving you an insight into her life on her families beloved Waycott farm with Daphne her favourite chicken and her faithful dog Buddy.

Hitch has only ever wanted what all girls want, to feel pretty, wear pretty shoes, to be able to make plans and have dreams with someone to share it all with. In this story you embark on a journey with her where you get glimpses of her childhood that have shaped and created the feelings she now experiences and where you see her meet Grayson when he arrives to stay at the B&B on the farm and this sets a chain of events into motion.

I absolutely loved this book, it was a beautiful story full of love and compassion that carries such a relevant and important message that is especially important in todays society when people seem happy to openly pass judgement and share negative comments on social media. This book highlights how goals and dreams are not defined by what society considers the perfect person that they are anyone’s for the taking and how no one should be making anyone else feel that they aren’t entitled to have dreams and ambitions.

Amanda Prowse has a superb knack of tapping into her characters and visually creating them in her stories, she makes you feel as if you are standing alongside her watching her characters and stories unfold. She leaves a part of herself in each book and manages to evoke emotion and happiness through her writing and her books are always an absolute pleasure to read.

 

Book Blurb

Thomasina ‘Hitch’ Waycott loves living and working on the remote family farm and B&B. But she also wants more. To see the world. To own her own home. To fall madly in love.

But those are fairy tales, and if her life is a fairy tale, then she’s the ugly duckling. Her deformed lip, her crooked limbs and her weak heart have kept her from taking chances. But that’s about to change.

When Grayson Potts comes to stay, he’s unlike anyone Thomasina has ever met. He’s aloof, eccentric and exceptionally kind. He’s also totally unconcerned with the physical flaws that have always defined Thomasina.

The two form a bond that neither has had before. It’s possible that it could become something more, but Thomasina also wonders if it’s too good to be true. By putting her heart on the line, Thomasina may open herself to heartbreak. But she may also open herself to so much more.

#Review Today I am sharing my review for the truly superb – When All Is Said by Anne Griffin #WhenAllIsSaid #5* @AnneGriffin_

Today I am sharing my review for the truly superb When All Is Said by Anne Griffin, I took this book on holiday to Disney with me and was waking up early to be able to keep reading whilst everyone else slept.

I chose to bump When All Is Said up the TBR pile after reading so many fantastic reviews and I am so pleased that I did. This is a book based on a wonderful love story that takes you on a journey from childhood to marriage and through to old age. It is brimming with love, loss, commitment and regrets.

A wonderful story told from the perspective of Maurice who sits down in the very significant Rainford House Hotel one night and tells us his story accompanied by his five chosen drinks to toast the most important people in his life.

I loved this book and just had to keep reading, I chose this to read whilst on holiday and picked it back up every time I sat down and got up early as I was so keen to keep reading. A truly lovely story that will leave you with all of the emotions and feelings.

Book Blurb

If you had to pick five people to sum up your life, who would they be? If you were to raise a glass to each of them, what would you say? And what would you learn about yourself, when all is said and done?

This is the story of Maurice Hannigan, who, over the course of a Saturday night in June, orders five different drinks at the Rainford House Hotel. With each he toasts a person vital to him: his doomed older brother, his troubled sister-in-law, his daughter of fifteen minutes, his son far off in America, and his late, lamented wife. And through these people, the ones who left him behind, he tells the story of his own life, with all its regrets and feuds, loves and triumphs.

Today I am taking part in the blog tour for the brilliant 5* read – It’s My Birthday by Hannah Pearl

It's My Birthday

Today I am excited to be taking part in the blog tour for It’s My Birthday, many thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the offer to take part.

I absolutely loved this book from the first couple of chapters. The storyline covers off major life events relating to IVF and infertility in a sensitive manner whilst highlighting you don’t always know what people are dealing with and that happiness can be found when it is least expected.

Throughout this brilliant story I loved the dynamics between Elliot and Karen and how this is all built upon their random chance meeting. The characters were brilliantly written, totally loveable and made me connect with them instantly.

I picked this up expecting a light hearted read and was swept along on a brilliant journey with Karen, Elliot and Sophie that left me feeling emotional for all that they had experienced and what was yet to come.

A superb book that I loved reading cover to cover, a brilliant balance of emotion and humour and I am so pleased to be able to share my review and recommend you grab yourself a copy.

 

Book Blurb

… i’ll cry if I want to.
Oh boy, another birthday …
Karen could be excused for crying on her birthday, especially as it’s the first one since her husband got on a plane to the States and never came back. Then there’s the fact that her workmates were practically bribed to attend her birthday meal. But when a restaurant double booking leads to her sharing a table with single dad Elliot and his daughter, things start looking up.

As Karen gets to know Elliot she experiences feelings she thought she’d never have again. But is it enough? Or will the thing that destroyed Karen’s previous relationship also ruin things with Elliot?

Today I am sharing my review for the superb – The Passengers by John Marrs

Today I am really excited to share my review for The Passengers by John Marrs as I absolutely loved this book.

After hearing lots of fantastic reviews, I picked this up to read on my train journey to the Leeds TBC meet and then became so invested in reading the book I didn’t want to put it back down.

The concept of this book is genius, the characters are brilliant whilst flawed and the whole narration of the book is superb.

In the current world where AI continues to grow and develop, this book is a revelation without being far fetched. John Marrs is a superb story teller who always brings something different to the table. This book makes you think, contemplate and reflect. I have struggled to pick up another book after finishing this at the beginning of the week as it has left me with a real book hangover. I loved it beginning to end and would highly recommend it.

 

Book Blurb

Eight self-drive cars set on a collision course. Who lives, who dies? You decide.

When someone hacks into the systems of eight self-drive cars, their passengers are set on a fatal collision course.

The passengers are: a TV star, a pregnant young woman, a disabled war hero, an abused wife fleeing her husband, an illegal immigrant, a husband and wife – and parents of two – who are travelling in separate vehicles and a suicidal man. Now the public have to judge who should survive but are the passengers all that they first seem?

Today I am sharing my review for The House at Greenacres by Darcie Boleyn

I love Darcie Boleyn her books always reel me in and make me want to keep reading and this book was no exception, I am excited that this is the first book in the Penhallow  Sands series. A fabulous light hearted read about love, trust, loss, heartbreak and moving on.

Holly fled her beautiful home the previous year due to heartbreak but the loss of her Grandfather brings her and baby Luke home to help her Father & Grandmother at her childhood home.

A lovely light hearted read, set in a beautiful location that will make you smile and leaves you with a magical fuzzy feeling. Another superb read by Darcie Boleyn that I didn’t want to end and I am already looking forward to the next visit to Holly at Penhallow Sands.

About the Author

Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.

Happy Monday, let’s start the week with a 5* review – The Lion Tamer Who Lost by Louise Beech #theliontamerwholost #lovethesmellofabook @louisewriter

Wow what a book, this is the rare gem of a book that you pick up and become some immersed in that time passes you by and you genuinely feel bereft when you reach the end of the story as you felt the characters had become your friends during the journey.

That is exactly how I felt reaching the end of this wonderful poignant story. This book is a beautiful story of love and loss that takes you on a journey with Ben to the Lion reserve in Africa hoping to find answers to many unanswered questions. Ben and Andrew are everything to eachother and sometimes the people you love the most are the ones you end up hurting the most for all the right reasons.

Once I had picked this book up, I struggled to put it down as I was so keen to see how Ben’s journey would play out and whether on his return be able to salvage a relationship with Andrew.

A superb read that holds a little something for everyone, it takes you on a beautiful and emotional journey that will leave you feeling sad and a little lost when you reach the end.

 

Book Blurb

Be careful what you wish for…
Long ago, Andrew made a childhood wish, and kept it in a silver box. When it finally comes true, he wishes he hadn’t…

Long ago, Ben made a promise and he had a dream: to travel to Africa to volunteer at a lion reserve. When he finally makes it, it isn’t for the reasons he imagined…

Ben and Andrew keep meeting in unexpected places, and the intense relationship that develops seems to be guided by fate. Or is it? What if the very thing that draws them together is tainted by past secrets that threaten everything?

A dark, consuming drama that shifts from Zimbabwe to England, and then back into the past, The Lion Tamer Who Lost is also a devastatingly beautiful love story, with a tragic heart…
