Falling for a French Dream by Jennifer Bohnet

My Review

Oh wow I don’t know where to start, this is an author whose stories transport me to sunny France and steal my heart within the first few chapters. I love picking up a book and just knowing it’s going to be an amazing read and a feel good tonic which is something we all need from time to time.

I loved my trip to France where we meet the Jacques family as they adjust to the sudden loss of their son/nephew and we get to meet Olivier and Nicola who are also still deeply lost in the grief of losing Marc.

Throughout this story we get to experience the highs and lows as they work to mend family bridges, build new relationships and make life changing decisions. All of which is set against the stunning back drop of a small village near Nice and the family farm.

From reading this story it is clear early on that the absolute back bone of this story was family and throughout the beautiful descriptions and sprinkles of romance the importance of family shone through.

A story that consumed me and left me keen to squeeze in extra time to keep reading whilst being torn as I also wanted to savour my trip as I was enjoying it so much.

Book Blurb

Escape to hills high above the French Riviera with international bestseller Jennifer Bohnet.

After tragically losing her husband, Nicola Jacques and her teenage son Oliver relocate to his father’s family’s Olive Farm in the hills above the French Riviera.

Due a family feud, Oliver has never known his fathers’ side of the family and Grandpapa Henri is intent that Oliver will take over the reins of the ancestral farm and his rightful inheritance.

Determined to keep her independence from a rather controlling Grandpapa, Nicola buys a run-down cottage on the edge of the family’s Olive Farm and sets to work renovating their new home and providing an income by cultivating the small holding that came with the Cottage.

As the summer months roll by, Nicola and Oliver begin to settle happily into their new way of life with the help of Aunts Josephine and Odette, Henri’s twin sisters and local property developer Gilles Bongars.

But the arrival of some unexpected news and guests at the farm, force Nicole and Aunt Josephine to assess what and where their futures lie.

This book was previously published as The French Legacy.

Let’s kick off the weekend with a review for Take a Moment by Nina Kaye – a superb 5* story that I highly recommend.

My Review

I have found this one harder to review as the battles that Alex faced mirror very closely to health battles I have encountered and I found that sometimes the words jumping from the pages took me back to that stage of freshly diagnosed. However to read a story with the subject being so well understood and represented on the pages gave me hope that perception is starting to change and that people are starting to understand invisible illnesses better, in that one day they are invisible and the next day you can’t even make it out of bed unassisted.

Alex was a strong and independent character throughout and her grit and determination to succeed despite how much life had changed just made me love this character even more. I flew through this book once I had started and kept hiding away so I could keep reading as I wanted to know if Alex’s determination was enough to see her succeed as she went against the wishes of her family and left her support network behind as she moved on in her life.

A highly recommended read that I loved from beginning to end, there are highs and lows throughout the story and I found this emotional and heartwarming.

Book Blurb

Life is better lived in the moment

Meet Alex. She has a wonderful fiancé, a job she thrives in, and a best friend she’s known since childhood. Life’s not perfect, but it’s pretty fantastic. Until a shock diagnosis suddenly throws everything off course.

But Alex has never been one to back down from a fight. Now single and unemployed, she packs up and moves from her Glasgow hometown to vibrant Birmingham for a fresh start. In a new job, in a new city, she’s learning all over again what’s important in life.

Friendship, fun and even romance lie just around the corner – but can Alex get out of her own way and learn to just take a moment, and live?

A stunning, uplifting romance for fans of Mhairi McFarlane and Jo Watson.

What better way to kick off the week than with a 5* review for A Christmas Wedding in the Cotswolds by Lucy Coleman

My Review

I absolutely loved this festive read where we get to revisit the lovely Immi & Tollie and enjoy another festive countdown as they prepare for the 10 year anniversary of the Santa Ahoy cruises to raise money for the new playground installation.

A perfect story not only started to make me feel festive and count the weekends until Christmas, but it also made me laugh throughout. Full of family love, loyalty and wonderful friendships this story is a bursting with real life emotions that will make you smile as well as tear up in places. I loved getting to spend more time with the kind hearted Immi as she prepares to marry Gray and continues to overcome the obstacles she keeps uncovering whilst converting Lock Keepers Cottage.

I really enjoy books by this author and I loved being introduced to Lock Keeper Cottage last year, I was so pleased that this was a perfect continuation. A story that can be read as a continuation from last year or as a standalone thanks to the refresher the author kindly provided in the prologue. I really hope we get to revisit next Christmas to see how the first year of married life is treating Immi & Gray.

Book Blurb

What could be more festive than a winter wedding in the picturesque English countryside? Join us for Christmas in the Cotswolds with the bestselling Lucy Coleman.

Imogen Tolliman and Gray Adams can’t wait to get married after getting engaged the previous year, when they were stranded by snow in a blizzard. Now they are busy planning their wedding, but when the date slips six months because Gray is working on a huge film project, it seems like fate that after their snowy start, they will end up getting married at Christmas.

The couple are living in Immi’s grandfather’s picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage at the Aysbury marina in the Cotswolds, which they are renovating to become their forever family home. As well as building work, full-time jobs and wedding planning, Immi is in charge of raising money to build a children’s playground, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of The Santa Ahoy Cruises – her grandfather Tollie’s life work.

When Gray is suddenly forced to travel abroad, Immi is left to cope with everything alone, and before long, even the best-laid plans start to wobble. When a terrible betrayal is uncovered, the whole community of Aysbury is left reeling, and Immi is left wondering if there will be a wedding after all…

Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to an unforgettable Cotswolds Christmas full of romance and laughter, friendship and family and much-loved festive traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.

Today I am delighted to be joining the blog tour for Nobody’s Perfect by Stephanie Butland

My Review

Oh wow, I took this book on holiday with me and instantly lost myself between the pages as we meet Kate and Daisy and got to know and witness firsthand their daily battles.

Daisy was born with cystic fibrosis when Kate was just 19 and since then everything in Kate’s life has dramatically changed as it is now all about keeping Daisy healthy. A story that provides insight into how cystic fibrosis can cause so many complications within a tiny body and highlighting how this is not the definition of who the person and instead is just a part of them. I personally find this element really easy to empathise and connect with as when you have a health condition, people often recognise you as the person with, rather than the person you actually are.

This story is so heartwarming, at times it breaks your heart in two but then heals it again as Kate & Daisy continue to make memories and deal with the normal highs and lows of being five. There is a wonderful assortment of characters in this book emphasising that it takes a village to raise a child and to accept the help and support where it is available to ensure you feel less alone and remember that you also have to look after yourself.

A great story that I raced through and felt so much empathy for the characters, I was disappointed to reach the end of this wonderful journey with Kate & Daisy.

Book Blurb

Does your past define your future?

When her daughter was born with cystic fibrosis, Kate Micklethwaite vowed that Daisy would never be defined by the illness. Kate is determined that her perfect little girl will be known for her love of butterflies and croissants and nothing else. Kate does all she can to be the perfect mother – whatever that means – and yet, somehow, has started seeing herself the way others see her: single parent, source of small-town scandal, drop-out, former mistress. Half a family.

When Daisy starts school, Kate meets her new teacher, the kind and charming Mr Spencer Swanson. Now, with more time on her hands Kate can start thinking about her own future. With her Open University dissertation deadline looming, Kate needs to decide what she wants next. But as she and Spencer get to know each other, Kate notices that people are whispering behind her back once more . . .

Today I am joining the blog tour for Did You Miss Me? by Sophia Money-Coutts

My Review

Did You Miss Me? is my first book by this author and one that I quickly wanted to pick up and continue reading.

A fun read that makes you laugh and cringe throughout, when Nell is forced to return home to look after her Dad and step away from her well organised regimental life you just don’t quite anticipate the next chain of events that take place.

I found this story fun and light hearted to read, it makes you reminisce of teenage love and past heartbreak.

Nell is a driven character who after heartbreak set herself a goal and has since had plans in place to keep climbing the career ladder. I loved the nicknames that were given to clients and the insight into the law company where Nell is working to become partner. I didn’t like Gideon as a character which wasn’t surprising with his stuck in the past methods and the way he spoke down to Nell really rankled me.

Full of great descriptions and located amongst gorgeous scenery, a perfect story to make you laugh and escape from the trials of every day life.

Book Blurb

You never forget the one that got away, do you?

Nell Mason is extremely happy with her life – or at least, that’s what she tells herself. She’s lucky to have a high-powered job as a lawyer, even if it does come with an eccentric set of billionaire divorce clients. And she’s absolutely fine living with her sweet, if slightly dull, boyfriend Gus in their London flat where they have very sensible sex once (OK, sometimes twice) a week. She’s definitely not stuck in a rut.

But when Nell bumps into childhood friend and first love Arthur Drummond who broke her heart fifteen years ago, she’s more than a little shaken. The seemingly perfect life she’s worked so hard for starts to feel, well, less perfect. Maybe Nell’s been kidding herself all these years. Can she ever get over her first love?

Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for The Art of Loving You by Amelia Henley

My Review


Today I am delighted to be sharing my review for this amazing book, I loved Amelia Henley’s first book last year and this one was even better if that’s possible.

Jack & Libby were deeply in love and excited to start their journey together in their new home until life took a totally different direction that just breaks your heart. Libby is totally lost in her grief and desperately trying to keep her head above water whilst making some big decisions that affect not only her future but those of others as well. The emotions are raw and reflective with lots of single events keep taking place which are threading a whole other story together that grows in the background as you continue to read. Sid was introduced early on and I loved the little touches that he bought to the story through his memories of Norma, he was such a key character that you will instantly love and wish he was your grandparent.

This story is brimming with love and highlights how everyone deals with their loss differently, a frank reflection on the depths of grief for a group of individuals whose grief starts to unite them and helps them find a new way forward with new goals and a shared purpose.

Book Blurb

They were so in love . . .
And then life changed forever . . .
Will they find happiness again?
 
Libby and Jack are the happiest they’ve ever been. Thanks to their dear friend, eighty-year-old Sid, they’ve just bought their first house together, and it’s the beginning of the life they’ve always dreamed of.

But the universe has other plans for Libby and Jack and a devastating twist of fate shatters their world.
 
All of a sudden life is looking very different, and unlikely though it seems, might Sid be the one person who can help Libby and Jack move forward when what they loved the most has been lost?

Today I am delighted to be helping kick off the blog tour for Life’s What You Make It by Sian O’Gorman

My Review

I discovered this wonderful author last year when taking part on a blog tour and jumped at the chance to read her next release.

A story set between London & Sandycove in Ireland and once again I loved it, the location was gorgeous and the descriptions really captured the spirit and bought the location to life. I quickly liked Liv as the main character in the story as she returned for a short break to Ireland to help her Mum run her shop. Liv was downtrodden when she arrived back home and keen to take the pressure off of her mother whilst she recovers.

Liv was instantly portrayed as kind and caring which just became more evident the more I read. The essence of the story is about not giving up hope despite the circumstances you find yourself in and I loved the different directions lives took as we read and got to know these lovely characters and watch their friendships blossom. Liv had previously run her own market stall and after working in the rat race of London and feeling she is missing out on life, she starts to remember how much she enjoyed creating her own products and speaking to customers.

I loved the romance that jumped from the pages and how a little self belief created such a fire in Liv’s belly. A wonderful story rich in love and friendship and that I loved from cover to cover.

Book Blurb

Dreams can come true, you just have to believe…

All new from Irish bestselling author Sian O’Gorman

After 10 years in London, working in a stressful City firm, Liv O’Neill returns home to Sandycove, a picturesque seaside village, just outside Dublin to care for her mother after a fall.

Whilst Liv reconnects with friends and family, she is amazed by Sandycove’s thriving community spirit with its artisan shops, delis and cafes – it’s not quite the place she left behind.

As village life begins to creep under her skin, Liv is forced to confront the things that drove her away.

Can Liv balance her past, present and future and find her own happy place?

And will a handsome young doctor help her make a decision about the life she really wants?

Suddenly her old life in London begins to seem extremely unappealing and Liv is forced to use her family’s past in order to forge a brand new future.

Today is my turn to jump on the blog tour for the wonderful – The Moment I Met You by Debbie Johnson

My Review

Wow what an emotional rollercoaster of a story, which consists of many layers all loaded with many emotions to process as you read. This group of people are thrown together through tragedy and through this they find unexpected friendships and live lives they never anticipated.

A story that will stay with me for a long time, I found it raw in places and the descriptions were so vivid the words jumped off of the page and created a vivid illustration to the disasters unfolding around them and the many sunsets they watched from the hospital balcony. The research into this story is evident with the detail provided and the weight of the emotion it carries.

Once you pick this up you will want to keep reading as you are immersed in the tragedy and the aftermath of destruction it leaves behind. Elena was a character who I loved, she was kind and compassionate and always thought of everyone else’s needs ahead of her own which is both heartbreaking and admirable as they all lost something on that unfortunate day in Mexico.

A wonderful story that I recommend you clear a day to read as I didn’t want to put it down once I had started.

Book Blurb

It only takes a second

For life to change forever.

Elena Godwin could never have known that her dream holiday to Mexico would change her life forever. She thought that she was in charge of her own destiny. But on a gorgeous summer evening, her whole world is ripped from her feet in a single moment.

Ten years later, she still can’t forget the face of the stranger who held her whilst everything she knew was destroyed. Thrown back together again, Elena starts to uncover the truth around that fateful night – and questions whether she made the right decision all those years ago.

She only met him for a moment, but maybe it’s not too late…

Today I am really excited to share my review for the latest release by one of my favourite authors – Waiting to Begin by Amanda Prowse

My Review

In Amanda Prowse’s newest release meet Bess on her 16th birthday and share her joy of turning 16 followed by a day that shaped her life forever in a way she never saw coming.

Throughout this story we jump between 1984 and 2021 as we piece together what happened on that day that should have been such a happy occasion filled with wonderful memories. As we travel between her birthday both then and now, we start to see how this day is causing her future self to unravel and the ramifications for both herself and her family.

A story full of love, shame and pain as we learn what happened 37 years ago and how this has since shaped the life and decisions that Bess has made. Once again we are taken on an emotional rollercoaster as we get to know Bess’ nearest and dearest and see how secrets from the past finally come to a head and how the love and support of family can help Bess to move forward without the feelings of shame and guilt.

A wonderful story with a superb ending that left me with my heart in my mouth, I love reading books by Amanda and this was an absolute pleasure to curl up and devour.

Book Blurb

From the bestselling author of The Girl in the Corner comes a story that asks: what would you risk for a shot at happiness?

1984. Bessie is a confident sixteen-year-old girl with the world at her feet, dreaming of what life will bring and what she’ll bring to this life. Then everything comes crashing down. Her bright and trusting smile is lost, banished by shame—and a secret she’ll carry with her for the rest of her life.

2021. The last thirty-seven years have not been easy for Bess. At fifty-three she is visibly weary, and her marriage to Mario is in tatters. Watching her son in newlywed bliss—the hope, the trust, the joy—Bess knows it is time to face her own demons, and try to save her relationship. But she’ll have to throw off the burden of shame if she is to honour that sixteen-year-old girl whose dreams lie frozen in time.

Can Bess face her past, finally come clean to Mario, and claim the love she has longed to fully experience all these years?

What better way to kick off a Sunny Sunday that with a review for One Summer Sunrise by Shari Low

My Review

One Summer Sunrise is written predominately within a 24 hour time period as we meet Maisie McTeer who steps in at the last minute to help her best friend cater an event as she has gone into labour. This sets off a chain reaction of events that Maisie or anyone else in this story ever saw coming.

We get to meet Maisie early on as she peels her eyes open from a hangover and realises the event she is helping to cater for is being held at the very location her ex jilted her on her wedding day just months before. We also get to meet the lovely Harriet who after a fall and broken hip is getting ready to leave the hospital, however Harriet hasn’t told anyone how alone she is and how she can’t face returning home to continue her lonely existence.

As you read this story which is full of highs and lows your heart soars and then falters as you follow the emotional story of all the people caught within its pages. Everyone in this story is experiencing a range of emotions that all interlinked and create unexpected new relationships and discoveries for both Maisie & Harriet.

I loved this book and flew through the pages as loved the short time line for the majority of the story and how it all tied together to create a wonderful discovery. An author whose books I love, took me on another wonderful journey that I did not want to end.

Book Blurb

As the sun rises on a hot summer’s day, four lives are about to be changed forever…

Brand new from the bestselling author of What If?, What Now? and One Day In Summer.

Today, Maisie McTeer decides to track down the ex who jilted her at the altar. Today, she’ll find out that revisiting the past can also rewrite her future. 

After losing her husband, Harriet Bassett can no longer bear her lonely life. Today, a familiar face in a crowd will spark a quest to discover if there’s something and someone worth living for. 

Scott and Kelly Bassett’s daughter is leaving home. Today, Scott plans to tell Kelly that he’s ending their marriage to pursue his rock and roll dreams. 

However, Kelly, has a bombshell of her own. How will Scott react to the news that a new arrival is on the way to fill their empty nest? 

Between sunrise and sunset, there’s love, heartbreak, laughter and tears, but who will find happiness at the end of the day?
