The Secret of Us by Liesel Schmidt

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I downloaded The Secret of Us by Liesel Schmidt from NetGalley, as I definitely hadn’t anticipated being pulled into such an emotional story. The book opens with Eira Larson on a date with her fiancé, Matt, at their favourite restaurant, where she is expecting them to discuss wedding plans and generally enjoy a pleasant evening in each other’s company. In no way is she prepared for what happens next, as Matt tells her that their engagement is a mistake and leaves with…


BEAUTY: Liquid Eyeliner Disaster


Ok, so as a woman in her 40s with very limited experience with makeup, I thought I would try and get to grips with a product I’ve never used before; liquid eyeliner. To get a rough idea I watched a few videos on YouTube of lovely young ladies with lots of experience giving great advice and useful tips. To be honest, it looked a cinch. So I excitedly pick up my first liquid liner (Marks & Spencer’s Limited Collection in Black) and sat myself down at my dressing table and…

REVIEW: Taint by S. L. Jennings

Taint - Jennings

I’m having such a problem writing this review, there’s SO much that I want to say, and I just can’t make coherent sentences right now! Ok, breathe… *exhales* Who is Justice Drake and what does he do? Justice Drake is sex, he instructs it, he demands it, he owns it and if your cheating, lying scumbag husband is too busy fucking his secretary, JD will teach you how to bring your husband to his knees and you’ll have him eating out of your *ahem* palm in no time 😀 Justice Drakes…

The Major's Faux Fiancée by Erica Ridley

A series that continues to grow better with each book, The Major’s Faux Fiancée by Erica Ridley is the next instalment to take a haunted returnee from the war and show him the love of a strong woman. I loved the premise of this book when I read the description on NetGalley, as this book sees Daphne Vaughn in need of a knight in shining armour to rescue her from the dastardly intentions of her new guardian. Since the recent death of her father, she has been under the guardianship…

The Holiday Book Disaster!

Thoughtful Ramblings

Books and holiday. To me they are synonymous; like strawberries and ice cream, fish and chips, salt and pepper and tea and biscuits. You can’t have a holiday without lots and lots of lovely books. My husband likes to read too, not as much as me by his own admission, but enough that each year we set a book buying budget and each buy the books we want to read on holiday. I love this part of holiday prep, so much so that I set up a spreadsheet (yes I…
