You, Me, Everything By Catherine Issac

You, Me, Everything By Catherine Issac

catherine

Jess and her ten-year-old son William set off to spend the summer at Château de Roussignol, deep in the rich, sunlit hills of the Dordogne. There, Jess’s ex-boyfriend and William’s father, Adam, runs a beautiful hotel in a restored castle.

Jess is bowled over by what Adam has accomplished, but she’s in France for a much more urgent reason: to make Adam connect with his own son. Jess can’t allow Adam to let their son down because she is tormented by a secret of her own, one that nobody – especially William – must discover.

By turns life-affirming, heart-wrenching and joyful, You Me Everything is a novel about one woman’s fierce determination to grab hold of the family she has and never let go, and a romantic story as heady as a crisp Sancerre on a summer day.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

My Thoughts:

This is going to be a big Summer hit. It has everything you could want to make it perfect, great characters, a bit of a tear jerker and the beautiful descriptive writing so much so you can feel the warmth of the French sun on your back. It is such a special book and I think I will cherish it forever. I think what I learnt from it is that we will definitely go to the ends of earth to help the ones we love. I read it in a few days and now I want to read it again.

Lying In Wait By Liz Nugent

Lying In Wait By Liz Nugent

liz nugent

Lydia Fitzsimons lives in the perfect house with her adoring husband and beloved son. There is just one thing Lydia craves to make her life complete, and she is determined that her husband will get it for her. The last thing she expects is that her obsession will lead to murder.

However, not even a dead body can stop Lydia in her tracks. If anything, it makes her more determined to get her own way – whatever the cost…

My Thoughts:

If you want to read a book that will leave you utterly speechless this is the one for you. It is so twisted and the suspense is unreal that you will want to finish it in a day. The chapters are all from the different characters perspective. This is the second book I have read by Liz and will not be my last. Liz is becoming my favourite new author for sure. I love a book that makes you think wow, and this book really did.

Secrets We Keep By Faith Hogan

Secrets We Keep By Faith Hogan

faith

Some people are good at keeping secrets but some secrets are never meant to be kept…

Two distant relatives are drawn together and forced to confront their pasts. A bittersweet story for fans of Patricia Scanlan and Adele Parks.

The beautiful old Bath House in Ballytokeep has lain empty and abandoned for decades. For devoted pensioners Archie and Iris, it holds too many conflicting memories of their adolescent dalliances and tragic consequences – sometimes it’s better to leave the past where it belongs.

For highflying, top London divorce lawyer Kate Hunt, it’s a fresh start – maybe even her future. On a winter visit to see her estranged Aunt Iris she falls in love with the Bath House. Inspired, she moves to Ballytokeep leaving her past heartache 600 miles away – but can you ever escape your past or your destiny?

My Thoughts:

I found this a nice little cosy read, one that kept me guessing until the end. There are a few twists and turns which kept my attention. I found the scene was set really well and the story was mysterious so when I wasn’t reading I was thinking about what might happen next. An excellent read from a new author to me.

What happens if you meet the RIGHT person at the WRONG time?

Nell and Van meet as children when their parents fall in love, but soon they are forced worlds apart.

Five years later, they find each other. Their bond is rekindled and new feelings take hold, but once again they have to separate.

My Thoughts:

I love reading a book by Paige Toon. There is nothing more than reading one of her books and imagining you are in the place her book is set in. A perfect way to escape and a lovely summer read. I have to confess I did cry a little nearer to the end, you will understand why once you get there, especially if like me it felt a bit close to home. One of my favourite reads of this year.

miranda

Matilda Bell is left heartbroken when she falls out with her beloved grandfather just before he dies. Haunted by regret, she makes a promise that will soon change everything . . .

When spirited former singing star Reenie Silver enters her life, Mattie seizes the opportunity to make amends. Together, Mattie and Reenie embark on an incredible journey that will find lost friends, uncover secrets from the glamorous 1950s and put right a sixty-year wrong.

My Thoughts:

This was a wonderful read. It reminded me of my close relationship that I have with my granddad. I love how each chapter is a song title it made it feel more personal and if you really want to immerse yourself you can play each song too which I did. This is a lovely story about second chances and I found it touching and funny in parts.

I won this book in a competition.

Guilt By Amanda Robson

Guilt By Amanda Robson

guilt

Your sister. Her secret. The betrayal.

There is no bond greater than blood . . .

When the body of a woman is found stabbed to death, the blame falls to her twin sister. But who killed who? And which one is now the woman behind bars?

Zara and Miranda have always supported each other. But then Zara meets Seb, and everything changes. Handsome, charismatic and dangerous, Seb threatens to tear the sisters’ lives apart – but is he really the one to blame? Or are deeper resentments simmering beneath the surface that the sisters must face up to?

As the sisters’ relationship is stretched to the brink, a traumatic incident in Seb’s past begins to rear its head and soon all three are locked in a psychological battle that will leave someone dead. The question is, who?

My Thoughts:

If you like a fast paced thriller this is the one for you. I found I couldn’t put it down and was thinking about it even when I was not reading it. Each chapter comes from a different person’s perspective and it flits from past to present, I like the fact that some of the chapters are small as it makes you want to read on just for a little bit longer. I will definitely be reading more of Amanda’s books in the future. This one was a brilliant thriller.

The Lies We Told By Camilla Way

The Lies We Told By Camilla Way

camilla

DO YOU PROMISE NOT TO TELL?

A DAUGHTER
Beth has always known there was something strange about her daughter, Hannah. The lack of emotion, the disturbing behaviour, the apparent delight in hurting others… sometimes Beth is scared of her, and what she could be capable of.

A SON
Luke comes from the perfect family, with the perfect parents. But one day, he disappears without trace, and his girlfriend Clara is left desperate to discover what has happened to him.

A LIFE BUILT ON LIES
As Clara digs into the past, she realizes that no family is truly perfect, and uncovers a link between Luke’s long-lost sister and a strange girl named Hannah. Now Luke’s life is in danger because of the lies once told and the secrets once kept. Can she find him before it’s too late?

My Thoughts:

After reading Watching Edie which is another of Camilla’s books I was really looking forward to this one. It does not disappoint, it is a psychological thriller that will keep you hooked straight away. There are two storylines that run along each other and are expertly woven together. It is dark and the plot takes twists and turns like you wouldn’t believe but I absolutely loved it.
