Join me today for a trip to Cornwall and check out my review for Summertime at the Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James #backablogger #daisyjames #blogtour #rachelsrandomresources @rararesources @daisyjamesbooks

Today I am very excited to be sharing my review for Summertime at the Cornish Confetti Agency. I have loved reading books by Daisy James for many years and am thrilled to share my review today.

My Review

I do love a book by Daisy James and this book combines a brilliant author, in a beautiful location and with the ultimate role of making sure a wedding goes off without a hitch.

Lexie had the odds stacked against her as random pranks are played against the obnoxious best man who appears to have no sense of humour and is intent on rubbing everyone up the wrong way.

So amongst planning the wedding she is trying to ensure that nothing else happens that could pose a problem to Dylan & Kay’s dream wedding.

A wonderful read that I really enjoyed, this book had great characters and I loved the descriptions and theme behind the dream wedding. A totally inspired idea that was easy to visualise as it all came together.

A book that grabs your attention so you just want to hide away and read uninterrupted for a few hours.

Book Blurb

It’s Summertime at The Cornish Confetti Agency!

When Lexie Harrington is asked to co-ordinate Kat and Dylan’s ‘English village fête’ wedding, she’s determined that this time everything will go according to her carefully laid plans; no ice bucket challenges, no whoopee cushions, and absolutely no googly eyes attached to everything in sight!

With gorgeous journalist-cum-wedding columnist Theo Barker to offer a helping hand, Lexie is optimistic that she can deliver the fairy tale wedding her clients have always dreamed of…. until the best man Noah is targeted by a loose hosepipe, the wedding rings go walk-about, and his beloved scarlet Porsche takes on a distinctly unpleasant aroma.

Can Lexie and Theo uncover what’s behind the mysterious goings on, or will the Cornish Confetti Agency be forced to close its doors to the future brides and grooms of glorious Cornwall?

About the Author

Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.

When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.

I am very excited to be sharing my review today for Summer Strawberries at Swallowtail Bay by Katie Ginger #backablogger #blogtour #swallowtailbay @rararesources @katiegauthor

I love it when you click with an author and I love reading books by Katie Ginger as they are always light hearted which is the perfect read right now. Today I am sharing my review for her new release Summer Strawberries at Swallowtail Bay.

My Review

I loved my first trip to Swallowtail Bay and was very excited to see the second book in the series advertised.

I love the location of the book, set along the Kent coast in a fictional town with the countryside just a stone throw away. I love living close to the sea and it really brings the setting to life with the thrum of the chatter on the beaches on a sunny day and seagulls lurking, these scenes are picture perfect.

In this story we get to know Hetty who has her own business as an events organiser and is looking for a way to branch out and create more business. This is how she comes to meet John who lives in a rundown house that is always in need of maintenance with its sprawling fields and and the gorgeous scent of roses in the gardens.

I loved the details of the planning for the event as I read and the new relationships we were introduced too, as well as revisiting some of the lovely characters who we had initially met in our first trip to Swallowtail Bay.

A wonderful second visit to the gorgeous seaside town where you get to know more wonderful characters. An absolutely pleasure to read, I loved delving into these pages and was smiling as I reached the end.

Book Blurb

Grab your strawberries and cream and get ready to return to the beautiful Swallowtail Bay!

Summer is in full swing and the locals are getting excited for the launch of the Swallowtail Bay strawberry food festival. But will all run smoothly when festival organiser Hetty’s heart is torn between lord of the manor John Thornhill and successful bakery owner Ben?

On this sunny Sunday, I am sharing my review for The Little Teashop in Toyko by Julie Caplin

My Review

The Little Teashop in Tokyo is the perfect read if you are looking to loose yourself, this is pure escapism and I loved my trip to Toyko whilst reading this book. It oozed Japanese culture and traditions and took us on a tour of landmarks and let us relish in what their culture means to them. The descriptions were vivid and portrayed a love of Japan and gave great insight into the food and culture.

The characters were delightful and I loved getting to know them. Fiona was a complex character who was finding her feet after having her confidence shattered; making her bucket list trip and determined to take in as much culture and immerse herself in Japan both as a tourist and as a resident. Whereas Gabe was showing Fiona round Japan as a favour and had forgotten the beauty of the country where he had been submerged in his every day life and his previous on/off relationship.

I absolutely loved this book, Japan as a country is somewhere I would love to visit and reading about the amazing sights and traditions just made me want to visit even more. I would love to see the gorgeous cherry blossom and know my daughter would love the digital art museum. This book is escapism at its best, I was transported to Tokyo and felt like I was sitting in the teashop soaking up the culture and enjoying the amazing views from Mount Fiji.

A superb story, with a wonderful balance of characters that makes your heart break and soar as you lose yourself between the pages.

Book Blurb

Grab your passport and escape to a land of dazzling skycrapers, steaming bowls of comforting noodles, and a page-turning love story that will make you swoon!

For travel blogger Fiona, Japan has always been top of her bucket list so when she wins an all-expenses paid trip, it looks like her dreams are coming true.

Until she arrives in vibrant, bustling Tokyo and comes face-to-face with the man who broke her heart ten years ago, gorgeous photographer Gabe.

Fiona can’t help but remember the heartache of their last meeting but amidst the temples and clouds of soft pink cherry blossoms, can Fiona and Gabe start to see life – and each other – differently?

Pop over to my blog today to check out my review of the wonderful The Summer We Ran Away by Jenny Oliver

The perfect book for spending the afternoon sitting in the sunshine reading. I loved this book and will really miss the eager to please Julia and the fiesty Amber as they were such great characters.

When I picked this up I expected to enjoy it as I love reading Jenny Oliver’s books but once I had started it just captured my imagination and I didn’t want to put it down. It transported me to France and took me on the summer holiday we can currently only dream of. I love a nice trip to France and this book just oozed French bakeries and fragrant expresso.

During this story I was taken in many directions with different outcomes down each path, whilst managing to encompass many every day family scenarios all within the one story. I laughed out loud whilst reading this book and wanted a cushion to hide behind as Julia realises everyone has seen her whats app message. A book that will make you feel the emotions as you read them, about the importance of being true to yourself and not trying to please others all the time. An unforgettable adventure that leads to new relationships and the hope that some old ones can be revived.

A brilliant book that I can’t wait to recommend as it kept me hooked right until the very last page.

Book Blurb

It was meant to be the party of the summer…

In Cedar Road, everyone is preparing for Lexi’s ‘White Hot’ summer party. For one night, parking squabbles and petitions are put aside as neighbours sip Prosecco under the fairy lights and gather by the hot tub to marvel at Lexi’s effortlessly glamorous life with Hot Hamish.

For Julia, it’s a chance to coax husband Charlie out of his potting shed and into a shirt so they can have a welcome break from the hellish house renovation they’ve been wrestling with. And it’s a chance for Julia to pretend – just for a night – that her life is as perfect as Lexi’s.

But when, during the party, one of Julia’s WhatsApp messages falls into the wrong hands and reveals her most intimate thoughts, things reach boiling point…
    
And when all the neighbours know exactly what you’re thinking, there’s only one thing to do.

Run away.

It’s going to be a summer Julia will never forget…

Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for the gorgeous read – A Wedding at the Beach Hut by Veronica Henry

Today I am joining the blog tour for the wonderful read A Wedding at the Beach Hut by Veronica Henry

My Review

Set in a wonderful location, I loved the mix of the fields of bluebells on the family farm and the beach hut where they spend so much time surfing and having family BBQ’s. Both families were full of wonderful characters; I loved the vibrance of Clover and how she seemed to light up every room she enters and Gwen always there to lend an ear and wisdom. The relationships were wonderfully detailed and the characters easy to visualise which just made the book even more appealing to immerse myself in.

A perfect read to whisk you away and immerse you in the lives of Robyn and her soon to be husband Jake. Robyn is in the midst of planning her wedding whilst dealing with lots of emotions and debating whether now is the time to reach out to her birth mother.

A story that unfolds and draws you in as emotions are laid on the table, the wording makes moments throughout this book really poignant and I was taken on an emotional journey that made me laugh, cry and smile as the story unravelled.

A truly brilliant book that I loved and where I could easily have kept reading about these wonderful characters and what would come next for them

Book Blurb

Escape to Everdene Sands, where the sun is shining – but is the tide about to turn?

Robyn and Jake are planning their dream wedding at the family beach hut in Devon. A picnic by the turquoise waves, endless sparkling rosé and dancing barefoot on the golden sand . . .

But Robyn is more unsettled than excited. She can’t stop thinking about the box she was given on her eighteenth birthday, and the secrets it contains. Will opening it reveal the truth about her history – and break the hearts of the people she loves most?

As the big day arrives, can everyone let go of the past and step into a bright new future?

A Cornish Summer Holiday (Little Duck Pond Cafe Series) by Rosie Green

Today is my stop on the blog tour for A Cornish Summer Holiday by Rosie Green, which is Book 10 in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series.

My Review

I loved my trip to Cornwall whilst reading this book as it reminded me of the trips we took when I was a child and the summer days wandering the beaches and eating cornish pasties.

This is the 10th book in this series but the first time I’ve met these lovely ladies and I really enjoyed it and it reads great as a stand alone if you haven’t started the series yet. A Cornish Summer Holiday is a lovely easy read oozing with brilliant characters that all bring a little something to the story.

I love a home renovation so the storyline really appealed to me, I love how the girls got stuck in with the renovations armed with colour charts inbetween their visits to the beach. As I continued to read this book I enjoyed how the backstory trickled in of the cottages and who had previously lived in them and the discoveries they made along the way that led to new friendships being forged.

A brilliant read to escape to the sandy dunes in Cornwall and feel like your taking a mini holiday and I look forward to reading more of this series and getting to know more about these kind hearted ladies.

Book Blurb

The Little Duck Pond Cafe girls are looking forward to a well-earned break in the Cornish seaside town of Pengully Sands, where Sylvia’s sister, Aggie, owns a holiday home. With the glorious golden sands, sparkling azure sea and an ice-cream parlour only yards away, it seems like the perfect location to relax and watch the surfers riding the waves (and maybe even have a go themselves).

But when they arrive, the girls find it’s not quite the seaside idyll they were expecting. The house is less ‘holiday home’ and more ‘creepy, dilapidated haunted house.’ Gracie, who runs the ice-cream parlour, has problems of her own and the last thing she needs is a bunch of high-spirited girls arriving to disturb the peace and isolation she craves. And when a handsome stranger looks set to destroy her livelihood, it seems like the last straw. Will Gracie get her happy ending – and maybe even make friends with the girls next-door? This wasn’t the relaxing break the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls were expecting, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the holiday of a lifetime!

About the Author

Rosie has been scribbling stories ever since she was little.

Back then, they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by ‘the baddies’.

Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all – unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.

Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now.

Rosie is currently writing a full-length book, ‘Lucy’s Great Cornish Escape’, which – in a fun twist – will feature favourite characters from the Little Duck Pond Café series.

Pop over to my blog today to read my review for The Plus One Pact by Portia Macintosh

Today I am joining the blog tour for The Plus One Pact, another brilliant read with lots of comedy sprinkled throughout.

My Review

Here is my review for the ultimate feel good read, which is just what the doctor ordered in the current climate. I love a light hearted read and have found I am gravitating to them more recently and this one made me giggle throughout.

When Cara meets Millsy and they come to an agreement to be each others plus ones for some family events, what could possibly go wrong. Neither of them anticipated how well they would get on or the mischief they would find themselves creating as they put their plan into action.

I really enjoyed this book, it made me chuckle throughout as the characters came to life and create havoc at each event they attend. Cara is a brilliant personality and I felt drawn to her, I liked her attitude and how she quickly struck up a friendship with Millsy. This book is light hearted read and will keep you entertained right until the last page.

Book Blurb

What if your plus one could be the one…?

Cara has officially run out of men. Her most recent dates have gone from bad to worse, and when her dating app informs her there is no one left in her area to choose from, she is at a dead end.

But with a summer of events ahead of her, she needs to find a solution, fast; someone to keep her company at the never-ending weddings, family gatherings and gender reveal parties that she can’t face going to alone. 

So when she meets handsome, confident, Millsy on a night out she may be in luck. They could not be more different in personality, but he too has a summer of events ahead and is desperate to get his family off his back about finding a ‘nice girl’. What if they made a pact to help each other out and be a plus one for the summer? Just as friends of course…? 

A brand new romantic comedy from bestseller Portia MacIntosh, perfect for fans of Zara Stoneley, Sophie Ranald and Mhairi McFarlane.

Escape to the French Farmhouse by Jo Thomas

Today I am super excited to be sharing my review for Escape to the French Farmhouse by Jo Thomas as this book totally captured my heart.

My Review

A glorious sunny read that mixes the relaxing scents of Lavender and the gorgeous French sunshine in between the pages as you read.

Shamefully this was my first book by Jo Thomas and now I’m wondering what other gems I might have missed as I just loved it.

Del is a wonderful character who despite the odds digs deep to carve a new life for herself as per her original intention when she left her old life behind and moved to the farmhouse in France. From the first few pages I just knew I was going to love Del and as I kept turning the pages I just grew to love her character more and more.

 A story that will bring a smile to your face on even the gloomiest day. I loved my afternoon in the garden making the most of the sunshine and enjoying the delicious scent of the lavender fields and beautiful lavender inspired recipes.

If your looking for the perfect read to lose yourself in this is the perfect gem, to enjoy on your sun lounger either on holiday or just for some much needed escapism.

Light hearted and heart warming this book will leave you with a lovely fuzzy feeling.

 

Book Blurb

Can she find her recipe for happiness?

Del and her husband Ollie moved to a beautiful village in Provence for a fresh start after years of infertility struggles. But six weeks after they arrive, they’re packing the removal van once more. As Del watches the van leave for England, she suddenly realises exactly what will make her happier…a new life in France – without Ollie.

Now alone, all Del has is a crumbling farmhouse, a mortgage to pay and a few lavender plants. What on earth is she going to do? Discovering an old recipe book at the market run by the rather attractive Fabian, Del starts to bake. But can her new-found passion really help her let go of the past and lead to true happiness?

A heart-warming tale about reclaiming your life, set amongst the lavender fields of Provence. Perfect escapism from the author of Late Summer in the Vineyard and The Honey Farm on the Hill.

Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for The Summer Villa by Melissa Hill

Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for the latest release by Melissa Hill. I love it when I have the opportunity to read and review for an author whose books I love and what isn’t there to love about a story set in sunny Italy.

My Review

Set against the stunning backdrop of Italy with it’s amazing views and beautiful villas. This is a story about friendship and how these lovely ladies found themselves and each other whilst on a trip to Italy many years ago. Told over a dual timeline 6 years apart, you get an insight from all of them as to where they were in their lives when they first arrived in Italy and what instigated them being there in the first place. 

I enjoyed getting to know these ladies through their highs and lows and how no-one really quite knows everything that happened during their visit where they all first became friends. 

I love a book set in Italy and this oozes stereotypical cute Italians and delicious food. A story that keeps you guessing throughout as to how other events all link together from their first trip and discover what really happened during those gorgeous summer days.

A book that will provide the perfect companion during the long summer days and that I highly recommend adding to your TBR pile.

 

Book Blurb

Three women. One summer reunion. Secrets will be revealed…

Villa Dolce Vita, a rambling stone house on the Amalfi Coast, sits high above the Gulf of Naples amidst dappled lemon groves and the fragrant, tumbling bougainvillea. Kim, Colette and Annie all came to the villa in need of escape and in the process forged an unlikely friendship.

Now, years later, Kim has transformed the crumbling house into a luxury retreat and has invited her friends back for the summer to celebrate.

But as friendships are rekindled under the Italian sun, secrets buried in the past will come to light, and not everyone is happy that the three friends are reuniting… Each woman will have things to face up to if they are all to find true happiness and fully embrace the sweet life.

Happy Publication Day to @TAWilliamsBooks Today I am sharing my review for Dreaming of Italy by T.A Williams #backablogger #bookreview #publicationday #rachelsrandomresources @rararesources

A massive Happy Publication Day to TA Williams, I discovered his books late last year and jumped at the chance to read his latest release.


My Review


Oh I do love a TA Williams book, he knows how to write pure escapism in the most gorgeous locations and I loved this one and how it whisked me away.


During this story you get to travel all over Italy with Emma as she looks for locations to shoot the movie that could land her the dream promotion she has been chasing and witness some gorgeous landmarks along the way. The descriptions are detailed and colourful and just make you want to travel and experience it for yourself.

The author has a brilliant way of bringing the locations to life so you feel like you are there experiencing them. This was another gorgeous story where the pages just whizzed by as I lost myself in the story of Emma & Mark. I loved the balance of the characters personalities and this grew the more I got to know them.

Everyone loves a bit of romance in Italy and this was another wonderful taste of Italy set against a stunning backdrop that I just loved from start to finish.



Book Blurb


Up for a dream promotion, Emma won’t let anything get in her way – not even love.
Working for a major Hollywood film company isn’t all glitz and glam. But when Emma gets sent to tour around Italy to scout the perfect location for a new blockbuster movie, she’s not going to complain. Especially when it could make or break her career…
Historical adviser for the project Mark is a distraction that Emma does not need. As they explore the beauty of Italy, Emma starts to fall for the mysterious Mark, and soon finds herself torn between her job and her heart.
From the wild, northern mountains of Piedmont, down the vibrant coast of Cinque Terre and through the rolling hills of Tuscany, Emma’s journey becomes one of self-discovery as she questions her priorities in life.
This heartwarming story of romance and redemption is the perfect read for fans of Tilly Tennant, Holly Martin and Daisy James.

About the Author
Firstly, my name isn’t T A. It’s Trevor. I write under the androgynous name T A Williams because 65% of books are read by women. In my first book, “Dirty Minds” one of the (female) characters suggests the imbalance is due to the fact that men spend too much time getting drunk and watching football. I couldn’t possibly comment. Ask my wife…

I’ve written all sorts: thrillers, historical novels, short stories and now I’m enjoying myself hugely writing humour and romance. Romantic comedies are what we all need from time to time. Life isn’t always very fair. It isn’t always a lot of fun, but when it is, we need to embrace it. If my books can put a smile on your face and maybe give your heartstrings a tug, then I know I’ve done my job.

I‘ve lived all over Europe, but now I live in a little village in sleepy Devon, tucked away in south west England. I love the place. That’s why you’ll find leafy lanes and thatched cottages in most of my books. Oh, yes, and a black Labrador.

I’ve been writing since I was 14 and that is half a century ago. However, underneath this bald, wrinkly exterior, there beats the heart of a youngster. My wife is convinced I will never grow up. I hope she’s right.
