Blog Tour: Review and Extract of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe by Carla Burgess

Review: This is a gorgeous read, that is perfect with a good cup of tea and a blanket to wile away a winter evening. Honestly this is a page turner from start to finish. Rachel owns a florist shop and has always lived in Chester, she has just got out of  a bad relationship. Antony is a stranger, a detective who is a bit shifty about his latest case and he is more certainly not looking for romance.  Or at least a relationship. Let me assure that fireworks are going to fly. Carla Burgass manages to capture the feelings of meeting someone new and falling in with some one new perfectly. Those initial meetings and cosy scenes were delicious to witness. And Rachel and Antony manged to give off a warm, fuzzy butterfly feeling. Meet Me Under the Mistletoe was an easy book to dive into and fall in love with. With some swoonsome scenes and a great story this was one book that was extremely hard to put down.  The wintery scenes were perfect, and the Christmassy vibes were delightful. There is some humorous dialogue, lovable characters and delightful surprises as Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is an adorable story that will manage […]

Blog Tour: Extract from The Little Christmas Village by Sue Moorcroft

Posted October 24, 2017 by Charlotte in Blog Tour / 0 Comments

So it is getting to that time of year when Christmas is all around. Today I have a little extract from the brilliant Sue Moorcroft and her wonderfully christmassy book, The Little Christmas Village.  The Extract: ‘What are we going to do? How can it have happened?’ Jodie wailed. Alexia felt hot tears ooze from her own eyes. Whether they were for Jodie, Gabe or herself, she couldn’t have said. But, used to Jodie’s emotional reactions, Alexia patted her back while Gabe made hot drinks and fetched tissues. There was nothing to do when Jodie was locked in grief but to allow her to cry it out. Eventually, when the storm had lessened, Gabe accessed the recent bank account transactions to show them that the money had disappeared in a series of withdrawals – cheques on Friday, when they’d all been preoccupied with preparing for the wrecking party, and the rest via Internet banking either side of midnight Saturday/Sunday. ‘You can see the name of the payees!’ crowed Jodie, hope dawning on her red and blotchy face. ‘Look, this one’s a company called Oatwood 2k Ltd. And this one’s —’ But Gabe was already shaking his head. ‘Don’t get your hopes […]

Blog Tour/ Review: A Season of Hopes and Dreams by Lynsey James

Blog Tour/ Review: A Season of Hopes and Dreams by Lynsey James

This is my first book from Lynsey James and it certainly will not be my last. This was a warm, funny and inspirational read that made me want to turn the page over and over again. While the bulk of the book was a serious and thought provoking topic, the story was told in a sensitive way. One that managed to be uplifting and heartwarming. Cleo was such an inspirational character. She managed to overcome so many obstacles and achieve so many goals despite everything. I loved that this was told through the idea of a bucket list. And I was cheering each and ever time a goal was ticked off. This book is definitely one that I will put in my happy place, as I sit down, unwind and enjoy a great book with a cup of tea.  A Season of Hopes and Dreams is the perfect way to start the weekend.   Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Blog Tour / Review: How Not To Be A Bride by Portia Macintosh

Posted October 17, 2017 by Charlotte in Blog Tour, Reviews / 0 Comments

This was such a fun, humorous read, that was impossible to put down. It was such a fun easy read that I devoured the book on a train ride! Mia and Leo are completely in love, however their relationship is not the smoothest of ones. There are other things influencing their relationship, like their house, Mia’s irregular income and interfering parents.  This creates lots of laugh out moments and hilarious situations that will bring a smile to your face. Serious question though: why do you get married? And is the party the most important thing when getting married? This was my first book by Portia Macintosh and I loved every moment. I cannot wait to read her next book. If you are yet to read the wonderful Portia Macintosh, then I really recommend starting with this book. A fun, flirty read that is entertaining read from start to finish.     Subscribe to Blog via Email Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

Blog Tour: Q&A with Catherine Ferguson, Author of Christmas at the Log Fire Cabin

Posted October 16, 2017 by Charlotte in Blog Tour / 0 Comments

Today I am delighted to be hosting a Q&A with Catherine Ferguson, author of Christmas at the Log Fire Cabin.   Q&A: 1. Can you in five words describe your book to those who haven’t read it? Funny, festive, family, fabulous food! 2. Was there anything in this book that took you by surprise? There are always some plot twists that don’t reveal themselves until part way through the writing. Towards the end of Christmas at the Log Fire Cabin, I needed to move the action along but wasn’t sure how best to do this. Not wanting to give anything away, a well-known Christmas party game came to mind that solved the problem very well indeed! 3. Do you have a favourite moment in the book? There’s a moment on Christmas Day when the heroine finally stops being a mouse and roars instead. I really enjoyed writing that scene. 4. Name the best book you have read in the last year, your favourite book and the book that is currently at the top of your TBR. I recently read Robert Galbraith’s The Cuckoo’s Calling and loved it. My favourite book is Marian Keyes’ The Other Side of the Story. And […]
