The Chocolate Lovers' Christmas by Carole Matthews

*Warning: Contains spoilers for previous books in the series* The loveable women of the Chocolate Lovers’ Club are back in The Chocolate Lovers’ Christmas by Carole Matthews, the third in this romance series. As soon as this appeared on NetGalley I knew I had to request it, having adored the previous two instalments and the group of four women who have been brought together by their intense love of all things chocolate. We begin the novel in a seemingly contented state for the majority of the protagonists, as Lucy has…

The Broken Hearts Book Club by Lynsey James

A novel all about overcoming the past and finding hope for the future, The Broken Hearts Book Club by Lynsey James is full of small-town charm. Set in the tiny Yorkshire village of Luna Bay, protagonist Lucy Harper has returned to her childhood home for the first time in eight years. It is the death of her Nana Lily that has forced her to come back, as she left under somewhat of a dark cloud and has never been brave enough to step foot in Luna Bay since. However, it…

Come Back to Me by Mila Gray, Sarah Alderson - for review

Some of you may not know that Mila Gray is also Sarah Alderson, author of the Lila series, which is a fantastic YA series that I feel is very overlooked. Sarah is a fabulous writer, so when Come Back To Me landed on my doorstep, I was very excited to see what her alter ego was all about. Have you ever seen that film, Practical Magic? (Sandra Bullock and she’s a witch) Well, there’s a part in that movie where Bullock is doing some gardening and she’s waiting for the clock to…


REVIEW: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Ugly Love - Colleen Hoover

Ok, so I feel that my review of Ugly Love should come with a disclaimer. Firstly, the way I have presented my review is accurate, your computer hasn’t gone wonky, and secondly, if you’re a MAHOOSIVE fan of Colleen Hoover then I suggest you turn away now. 😉 I like Colleen Hoover’s writing, she has an amazing gift, the power to bring characters to life and make them dance on a page and the feels…. ahhh the feels. CoHo certainly knows how to bring them! She is a master storyteller…

High Tide by Veronica Henry

Bringing a bit of last minute sunshine to the British summer, High Tide by Veronica Henry gives us a snapshot of a quintessentially British coastal town. The book begins with the funerals of two of Pennfleet’s local residents, who each moved in different social circles and so offer us different lifestyles to explore. The first, Joy, was a social worker who brought cheer and goodwill to those she met, with her daughter Kate having flown back from New York for the funeral. Since leaving Pennfleet, Kate has worked her way…


REVIEW: True North by Liora Blake

true north by Liora Blake

I bought True North on a whim on the hunt for a great rock star romance, and after a Goodreads recommendation. Liora Blake is a totally new to me author but the book had good reviews and I was so glad I read it. Let’s start with the hero, Trevor (aka Trax). I really enjoyed that he wasn’t just an ordinary rock star hero. No, he was a baggy jeans wearing, cocky rapper, and the difference was great and very refreshing, and sets this story apart from some of the other rock star…

The Great Village Show by Alexandra Brown

Inspired to return to the village of Tindledale after reading the first Christmassy instalment, I was excited to get my hands on The Great Village Show by Alexandra Brown on NetGalley. This book has a lot of intermingling stories running through it, held together by acting head teacher of Tindledale Village School, Meg Singer. She has lived in the village for most of her life and loves being a part of the village community, keen to play an organisational role in the upcoming Village Show. Following last year’s disastrous attempt,…
