#Review Today I am delighted to be joining the blog tour for The Photographer of the Lost by Caroline Scott

Photographer of the Lost 2 BT Poster

Today is my spot on the blog tour for The Photographer of the Lost.

A historical fiction read based during World War I, the story jumps between two timelines 5 years apart.

Harry and his two brothers all signed up for service and this follows them through the trenches and tells the story of then and after the trauma of the battlefield.

I read this at a slower pace to savour and visualise how it must have been for these young lads on the frontline. The book envokes all your senses as it describes the feelings, noise and smells. The description are vivid in both timelines so you can imagine the scenes both before and after the devastation of war.

When Harry visits the town’s and their graveyards for the fallen to capture photos for their families back home, it took me back to when I visited Ypres many years ago.

A story that will move you and help you remember the men who fought for our country.

Book Blurb

1921. Families are desperately trying to piece together the fragments of their broken lives. While many survivors of the Great War have been reunited with their loved ones, Edie’s husband Francis has not come home. He is considered ‘missing in action’, but when Edie receives a mysterious photograph taken by Francis in the post, hope flares. And so she begins to search.

Harry, Francis’s brother, fought alongside him. He too longs for Francis to be alive, so they can forgive each other for the last things they ever said. Both brothers shared a love of photography and it is that which brings Harry back to the Western Front. Hired by grieving families to photograph gravesites, as he travels through battle-scarred France gathering news for British wives and mothers, Harry also searches for evidence of his brother.

And as Harry and Edie’s paths converge, they get closer to a startling truth.

#Review Happy Halloween… Today I am sharing my review for the fantastically spooky The Lost Ones by Anita Frank

Today I am so excited to be joining the Halloween Takeover for The Lost Ones, which has quickly jumped into my top 10 reads of the year. I picked up this book the day after receiving it and I sat and devoured it within a day. I loved everything about this book from the carefully crafted characters to the superb gothic setting of Greyswick.

The story focused around the sisters Madeleine and Stella who along with the curious house maid Annie set about uncovering secrets that are haunting them in their sleep at Greyswick. The setting was during World War I which was a highly turbulent time for England and this book was brimming with loss and grief, which in turn brings the hidden secrets of Greyswick to life.

The Lost Ones is a story that captures you and pulls you in, it keeps you spellbound so that you just have to keep reading to see if Annie & Stella can really uncover the secrets contained within the walls of Greyswick and whether they are in danger delving into the past.

A superb read that I absolutely loved, the loss Stella had experienced was palpable and the setting was bought to life through the wonderful descriptions of this gothic home. I found myself holding my breath with anticipation, this is a book that you’ll be disappointed to finish .

Book Blurb

England, 1917

Reeling from the death of her fiancé, Stella Marcham welcomes the opportunity to stay with her pregnant sister, Madeleine, at her imposing country mansion, Greyswick – but she arrives to discover a house of unease and her sister gripped by fear and suspicion.

Before long, strange incidents begin to trouble Stella – sobbing in the night, little footsteps on the stairs – and as events escalate, she finds herself drawn to the tragic history of the house.

Aided by a wounded war veteran, Stella sets about uncovering Greyswick’s dark and terrible secrets – secrets the dead whisper from the other side…

#Review Today is my stop on this festive blog tour and I am sharing my review for Christmas at Wynter House by Emily Harvale

Christmas at Wynter House

Today is my stop on the blog tour for Christmas at Wynter House. A lovely festive read that will make you laugh and cringe throughout.

Neva Grey is at a turning point in her life where she needs to come up with a plan but first she is spending Christmas with her family in a nice little rented cottage.

From the second that Neva arrives she leave a trail of destruction that will make you giggle. As Christmas draws closer it appears that even the weather is now conspiring against the family and their nice cosy Christmas that they had planned.

I loved this book, it made me laugh, gasp and want to bury my head in my hands. It is full of festive cheer and I loved meeting the new characters in this story and can’t wait to read more about them. A great book to get you in the mood for Christmas set in a lovely location.

Book Blurb

After a frosty welcome, things soon heat up at Wynter House.

Neva Grey is looking forward to spending a quiet Christmas with her family in the cosy cottage they’ve rented in the picture-postcard village of Wyntersleap. Nestled between rolling hills and a gently burbling river, it’s going to be idyllic.
Except it’s not. Torrential rain causes the river to burst its banks and the quaint little village isn’t quite so cosy with water lapping at the doors. Add to that a power cut and a sudden blizzard and Christmas is looking bleak … until gorgeous Adam Wynter invites them all to Wynter House.
Although not everyone is happy to share the ancestral home. Adam’s elder brother, Rafe is less than pleased. Their grandmother, Olivia extends a grudging welcome. And for Carruthers, the oddly arrogant butler, unexpected guests are a Christmas surprise he could do without. Especially one as troublesome as Neva’s eight-year-old niece.
But something’s not quite right at Wynter House. What is Rafe intent on hiding behind the locked doors of the old barn? And what really happened to his first wife? It’s a good thing Neva has a sense of humour. She’s going to need it this Christmas at Wynter House.
This is book one in the Wyntersleap series but it can be read as a standalone. The Wyntersleap series is interlinked with the Merriment Bay series and several characters appear in both series.

Christmas Secrets at the Villa Limoncello Canelo

Today I am joining the blog tour for the third book in the Limoncello series, I am loving these books and jumped at the chance to visit Tuscany again and the gorgeous Villa Limoncello.

I love the magic that has been created in these stories between the Villa and Carlotta and it’s ability to slow everyone down and help them rediscover happiness.

I am a foodie and love the food and crafts throughout this book and the recipes at the end so that you can try and recreate some of the Tuscan magic in your own kitchen. The book is brimming with fantastic characters, that create the feeling that you are right there in Tuscany with them. A book that leaves you with a hankering for home cooked mince pies and a visit to the gorgeous Tuscan sights.

A superb addition to the series where once again you get swept away and before you know it you have reached the end of the book.

#Review Today I am joining the blog tour for The Gift of Happiness by Holly Martin #BlogTour #BackaBlogger @HollyMAuthor

Today I am joining the blog tour for The Gift of Happiness, I loved the first book and was really excited at the opportunity to visit the wonderful village of Happiness again.

From the first page where we are with Christmas loving Ruby as she arrives in Happiness a few months after initially falling in love with the village. This book pulls you straight back in and I fell immediately back in love with the wonderful village and its vast array of characters. I loved the awkwardness and tension between Jacob and Ruby from when they find they are sharing a shop and how this unravels as you keep reading with the cackle of tension in the air continuing to build as they both deny their feelings.

It was wonderful to take a festive trip back to this lovely village, I absolutely love the whole idea of relaunching a village with a years free rent and fell in love with these wonderful characters all over again. A brilliant read that will leave you feeling festive and full of love.

Book Blurb

This December Ruby Marlowe is relocating her little Christmas shop and everything she owns to the pretty seaside village of Happiness. With her best friend Willow already living there, and a heartbreaking past she’d rather forget, Ruby jumped at the offer of a cosy cottage and a fresh start on the Cornish coast. But she wasn’t the only one…

The last person Ruby expects to find in Happiness is her summer fling, the very gorgeous Jacob Harrington. He’s the only man who has come close to unlocking her heart, and therefore the one man she knew she could never see again. But now he’s here in the same village, and the chemistry between them is more electric than ever.

Falling in love again is something Ruby has vowed never to do. But Jacob is determined to change her mind.

As the village sparkles with Christmas lights and the snow begins to fall, can Jacob convince Ruby that love is worth the risk? And will Ruby accept the gift of happiness that Jacob is offering her before it’s too late?

She taught for four years and then escaped the classroom to teach history workshops, dressing up as a Viking one day and an Egyptian High Priestess the next.

#Review Today I am really excited to be sharing my review for The Family Gift by Cathy Kelly as part of her 20th book release celebrations!

Today I am sharing my review for The Family Gift, I love to read Cathy Kelly books and have read them all over the years so I jumped at the chance to read this for the blog tour.

The Family Gift is the story of Freya and her family, set in Ireland just outside Dublin. Freya is a parent we can all connect with on some level, juggling to keep all the balls in the air with 3 kids and her own career. During this story you get to know Freya and her alter ego Mildred and you gain in insight into the grief she is experiencing due to a series of events that have taken place over the last 12 months.

A wonderful reminder of how fragile life is and how when you scratch below the shiny surface that life isn’t always as it appears on social media and how everyone chooses to tackle their grief in different ways. In a world where mental health is now being recognised and peoples views and opinions are slowly starting to shift to not shaming people. This books is a powerful reminder to the damage social media can cause to everyone regardless of their age and how people still feel they are weak or an inconvenience when they need to reach out for help.

 

Book Blurb

Freya Abalone has a big, messy, wonderful family, a fantastic career, and a new house.

But that’s on the outside.

On the inside, she’s got Mildred – the name she’s given to that nagging inner critic who tells us all we’re not good enough.

And now Freya’s beloved blended family is under threat. Dan’s first wife Elisa, the glamorous, manipulative woman who happily abandoned her daughter to Freya and Dan’s care and left the country, has elbowed her way back into their lives.

But Freya knows that when life gives you lemons, you throw them right back.

Can Freya put her family – and herself – back together? Find out in Cathy Kelly’s warmest, wisest and funniest book yet…

#Review Today I am super excited to be helping kick off the blog tour for Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage by Katie Ginger #BlogTour #BackaBlogger @rararesources @KatieGAuthor

Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage.png

Today I am delighted to be helping kick off the blog tour for Snowflakes at Mistletoe Cottage, I have been eagerly awaiting this book and what a little gem it was.

Esme thinks she has life under control and everything heading in the right direction until the rug is pulled from under her feet. After a horrendously bad day Esme is forced to reassess her life decisions and moves back home to her parents in Sandchester.

I absolutely loved this book, it is a story full of hope, determination and at times desperation. Esme’s antics will make you laugh throughout and leave you craving home baked chocolate cake. The descriptions are vivid and allow you to visualise her in the cosy kitchen in Mistletoe Cottage. Esme is a superb character brimming with personality who I would love to have as a friend, especially with her wonderful cooking skills. She is the friend everyone needs in their lives and her Mum is a full force of nature that will make you giggle.

A book full of love and laughter that will make you feel all warm and fuzzy, leaving you feeling you have a lost a friend in Esme when you reach the end. I devoured this book and whilst reading it looked forward to picking it up to keep reading, even forsaking chasing Daisy to get ready for school as I was so keen to keep reading.

Book Blurb

On a grey, London day, Esme’s world crumbles around her when she loses her glitzy job on a top TV programme, her gorgeous, city-slicker boyfriend and her stunning apartment, all in one fell swoop just before Christmas.

Esme is forced suddenly to move back to her sleepy hometown of Sandchester, and despite the snow blanketing the roof and the fairy lights that twinkle in her rustic little cottage, everything is looking bleak. That is until she reconnects with an old crush and finds herself unexpectedly getting swept away.

But Joe, handsome and charming as he is, is not all he seems. Esme soon realises that he has a tragic past which he just might not be able to overcome…

Surrounded by her loving, if harebrained, family and with the support of her hilarious friends, Esme is determined to have a go at forging her own path, even if it all comes to nothing. But one question still lingers in her mind: will she find someone to kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas?

#Review Happy Publication day to Lana Melyan! Today I am sharing my review for Legacy (The Weight of Magic Book Two) #PublicationDay #BackaBlogger #TBConFB @lanamelyan

Legacy picks up straight from the end of the first book where Nicky is left reeling following the death of her parents and with many unanswered questions. I was left hooked after the first instalment and keen to read this book which I devoured in a short sitting.

The book is now really picking up the pace as it is unfolding and during this short story you learn more about the families history and how this links to the chain of events that are currently taking place and the dangers that they are facing.

A brilliant second instalment that I flew through eager to see where to story was headed and I am looking forward to continuing to read this series.

#Review Today is my turn on the blog tour for A Ration Book Childhood by Jean Fullerton #ARationBookChildhood #BlogTour #BackaBlogger #HistoricalFiction @rararesources @JeanFullerton_

A Ration Book Childhood

Today I am takin part in the blog tour for A Ration Book Childhood by Jean Fullerton.

I absolutely loved this book it is historical fiction at its best a brilliant story following the Brogan family in the heart of London during World War II. A great demonstration of how families pulled together and looked out for one another during this tough time. A story reflective of how families used to look after their own and no matter how bad their circumstances they found a way to move forward and look on the brightside.

Queenie was a superb character that made me smile, she was full of the Irish charm that just jumped off of the page as you were reading. A book that gave an insight to a close knit family during the destruction of war and how blood is always thicker than water.

 

Book Blurb

In the darkest days of the Blitz, family is more important than ever.

With her family struggling amidst the nightly bombing raids in London’s East End, Ida Brogan is doing her very best to keep their spirits up. The Blitz has hit the Brogans hard, and rationing is more challenging than ever, but they are doing all they can to help the war effort.

When Ida’s oldest friend Ellen returns to town, sick and in dire need of help, it is to Ida that she turns. But Ellen carries a secret, one that threatens not only Ida’s marriage, but the entire foundation of the Brogan family. Can Ida let go of the past and see a way to forgive her friend? And can she overcome her sadness to find a place in her heart for a little boy, one who will need a mother more than ever in these dark times?

#Review Today I am sharing my review for the lovely festive read Four Christmases and a Secret by Zara Stoneley #FourChristmasesandaSecret #FestiveRead #BlogTour #BackaBlogger @rararesources @zarastoneley

Four Christmases and a Secret

Today I am taking really excited to be taking part in the blog tour for Four Christmases and a Secret by Zara Stoneley.

OMG I absolutely loved this! Daisy is a character that I loved from the off, her rivalry and friendship with Ollie that has spurned since childhood and is reignited every Christmas as their parents compete over their achievements. Whilst Uncle T is the slightly eccentric Uncle everyone needs in their lives a beacon of light guiding the way and keeping everyone anchored together, with his annual Christmas eve parties.

This book is brimming with fantastic characters that you would love to attend a Christmas eve party with as they all bring a little something different to the lovely little bookshop each year. Daisy’s dog Stanley reminds me of my own dog, always on the hunt for food and cuddles.

I love Zara Stoneley’s books and I was really excited to hear that she had another book due for release before Christmas. Four Christmases and a Secret has just become my new favourite, it was a lovely story that draws you in and the last 40% flew by as I just had to keep reading as was loving how the story was unfolding. This was a book that I finished and then felt disappointed that I had read it so quickly as I had loved the characters so much. I love a festive read and this is a fab one to add to your pile to help you get in the Christmas spirit.

 

Book Blurb

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

Except for Daisy Christmas means another of Uncle T’s dreaded Christmas parties, complete with Christmas jumper and flashing antlers.  And Oliver Cartwright.  Gorgeous Oliver Cartwright. Who she hates.

Every year Daisy has to face insufferable Ollie and hear all about how BRILLIANT he is.  Whereas Daisy has no job, no man and no idea how to fix things.

This Christmas however Daisy is determined things will be different.  There will be no snogging Ollie under the mistletoe like when they were teenagers.  No, this year she’ll show Ollie that she’s a Responsible Adult too.

But as the champagne corks pop, and the tinsel sparkles, Uncle T has news of his own to share…and it could change Daisy’s life forever…
