Drawing With Light By Julia Green

Drawing With Light By Julia Green

Kat and Emily have grown up without their mother for almost as long as they can remember. And now Dad is with Cassy and they all muddle along together well enough – even though they are living in a cramped caravan while their new house is being renovated. Then Cassy and Dad tell them that Cassy is pregnant, and everything seems to shift. Emily feels a new urge to find her own mother.

How could she have left them the way she did? Never writing to them? Not communicating with them? And as Emily begins her search, not knowing what she will find, she is at the same time embarking on a new relationship of her own, that of her romance with Seb . . .

My Thoughts:

This was a nice, quick, easy read. I loved Emily the main character in this story and how her story was told. I am a keen photographer so felt myself warming to her. I loved reading about the blossoming romance between her and Seb, he seemed a really sweet guy and it reminded me of my youth. Young love hey!! Such a beautiful read that I would recommend it to anyone who has not read any of Julia Green’s books.

High Tide By Veronica Henry

High Tide By Veronica Henry

 

Pennfleet might be a small town, but there’s never a dull moment in its narrow winding streets …

Kate has only planned a flying visit to clear out the family home after the death of her mother. When she finds an anonymous letter, she is drawn back into her own past.

Single dad Sam is juggling his deli and two lively teenagers, so romance is the last thing on his mind. Then Cupid fires an unexpected arrow – but what will his children think?

Nathan Fisher is happy with his lot, running picnic cruises up and down the river, but kissing the widow of the richest man in Pennfleet has disastrous consequences.

Vanessa knows what she has done is unseemly for a widow, but it’s the most fun she’s had for years. Must she always be on her best behaviour?

My Thoughts:

I have now read quite a few of Veronica Henry’s books and loved them, this one was just as good. There are lots of interesting main characters and when I first started the book and read about Kate and Vanessa I felt drawn to them and cared for them. Veronica brings the small Cornish town to life with her beautiful descriptions you can almost imagine you are there. There are four main characters really including Vanessa, Kate, Sam and Nathan and I loved going on each and every one of their journey and finding out more about them, I really recommend reading this book and I love the way Veronica Henry’s books make you feel. Such a good read.

The years of Loving You By Ella Harper

The years of Loving You By Ella Harper

This title will be released on November 19, 2015.

What if your first love was your only love?

When Molly is diagnosed with a life changing illness, it feels like her whole world has come crashing down. She hopes the news will make her marriage to Sam stronger. But why does Molly always call best friend Ed in a crisis?

Ed. The very same Ed that Molly fell in love with at a party when they were teenagers, underneath a star-filled sky. Then life took them in very different directions. They could only ever be friends.

Suddenly Molly starts to question every decision she’s ever made. What if they could turn back the clock? Back to the very beginning. When the only certainty they shared was each other …

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I have not read any of Ella Harper’s books before but I really enjoyed this one. I knew from reading the back it would be a weepy kind of read and it was but it also had a love story to go with it. I found I warmed alot to Molly the main character and I did feel sorry for what she had to go through with her life changing illness. I really didn’t like her husband Sam what a coward, I couldn’t believe some of the stuff he said to Molly. Even though it kept on flitting between the different characters and the past and present it was easy to work out what was going on. Apart from Sam I liked all the characters, this is a emotional story but also one to make you stop and think. Lots of twists and turns made for a perfect read.

Christmas Ever After By Sarah Morgan

Christmas Ever After By Sarah Morgan

Skylar Tempest has never understood Alec Hunter’s appeal. So what if he’s a world-renowned historian? He’s also cynical, aloof and determined to think the worst of her. So when a twist of fate finds her spending the lead-up to Christmas with Alec and his family, she’s not expecting the season to be either merry or bright.

Alec has learned the hard way not to trust beautiful women—and Skylar is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. But as he watches her throw herself into his family’s festive chaos, Alec realises there is far more to this blonde bombshell than meets the eye.

With Christmas around the corner, Alec and Skylar return to Puffin Island, a tentative bond forged between them. Neither intends to fall in love but as the nights become darker, and the fire between them grows hotter, could this be the chance for Alec and Skylar to find their own happy ending?

My Thoughts:

I received this book in exchange of an honest review. This is my first Christmas book of the year which I don’t mind as I can read Christmas books even in the Summer. The cover looks amazing especially with all the glitter, it makes you just want to snuggle up and forget about the world.

I would love to go and visit puffin Island and meet up with all the characters it sounds so much fun. I really enjoyed the storyline and I loved the sound of Alec he sounds like a very nice man indeed. Ahem! I loved the way he helped Sky and the way he was so caring towards her. This is a story full of love, friendship and chemistry that also has some humour thrown in to. I couldn’t put this book down, and I really wanted it to continue. It is well worth a read.

A Kiss from France By Susan Hughes

A Kiss from France By Susan Hughes

As men toiled on the front lines, back home the munitionettes made the armaments and fought battles all their own.

London, 1917. Lizzie Fenwick is young, ambitious, and in love. At least, she thinks she’s in love with the soldier who answered the note she concealed in a box of ammunition shells. She spends her days filling shells with TNT, and her nights dreaming of the mysterious Harry Slater.

Eunice Wilson knows the exact moment her marriage to Jack began to fracture. He refused to enlist, and their patriotic neighbours never let her live it down. Now he’s been conscripted and she can’t help but feel regret for shunning Jack before his departure.

As separate tragedies cause Lizzie to make hard choices and Eunice to cope with loss, the two women are unsure how to adjust when peace finally returns. Little do they know that an earlier war-time betrayal will force Lizzie and Eunice to confront everything they knew about friendship, loyalty, and love.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, it is such a compelling story that you just get swept away with the romance and the fact it is set in 1917. I loved the characters in this book, the way the book is written is just brilliant I love reading books that are set in the past. So much description that I was sad when I finished it. Will definitely look out for more of this author’s books.

After You By Jojo Moyes

After You By Jojo Moyes


Lou Clark has lots of questions.
Like how it is she’s ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places.
Or why the flat she’s owned for a year still doesn’t feel like home.
Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago.
And will she ever get over the love of her life.
What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change.

Then, one night, it does.
But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for – or just more questions?
Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe.
Open it and she risks everything.
But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she’s going to keep it, she has to invite them in . .

My Thoughts:

I had to get my hands on this book as I couldn’t get enough of Me Before You, this is the sequel to that one. I couldn’t wait to find out what had happened with Lou and this book certainly did not disappoint. Some times you read sequels and they just do not live up to what you were expecting or other times you are left feeling that the ending was a bit rubbish but not this book it had me hooked till the very last page. This book made me laugh out loud, it made me shed a few tears, the characters I loved and fell in love with especially Lou as I could see myself in her always helping people out and putting others before herself. Such a brilliant read and I am glad I can finally say I have read it and loved it.

Cape Cod Promises: Love on Rockwell Island By Bella Andre and Melissa Foster

Cape Cod Promises: Love on Rockwell Island By Bella Andre and Melissa Foster


Fall in love on Rockwell Island… Sink your toes into the sandy beaches at the heart of Cape Cod Bay, where family comes first, good friends are around every corner, and true love is waiting beneath the stars.

Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, coownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love.

At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.

For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…

My Thoughts:

After reading the first book in the Love on Rockwell Island series, I was so looking forward to catching up with the characters and to see what was going to happen next. It was brilliant, in this story we get to find out about the characters Trent and Reese’s love story I loved it so much as it is so heart warming and managed to read it in a day it was that good. I think the cover looks very really great and I just wanted to dive in.
