The Plumberry School of Comfort Food By Cathy Bramley

plumberry school of comfort food

Verity Bloom hasn’t been interested in cooking anything more complicated than the perfect fish finger sandwich, ever since she lost her best friend and baking companion two years ago.

But an opportunity to help a friend lands her right back in the heart of the kitchen. The Plumberry School of Comfort Food is due to open in a few weeks’ time and needs the kind of great ideas that only Verity could cook up. And with new friendships bubbling and a sprinkling of romance in the mix, Verity finally begins to feel like she’s home.

But when tragedy strikes at the very heart of the cookery school, can Verity find the magic ingredient for Plumberry while still writing her own recipe for happiness?

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed reading this story, even though I had never met the characters before it did feel as if I knew them already. The cover of this book is really enticing and colourful and I wasn’t sure about the significance of the kingfisher but if you read this book you will find out. My heart went out to Verity and I can see what a lovely girl she is by what she had done for her best friend and how her life is now. The story was a bit emotional but there were also some laughs, I liked the sound of the two dachshunds Comfrey and Sage they sounded like little pickles. There are also some fantastic recipes at the end of this book for you to try out, I will definitely be making the mac n cheese as it is my favourite food.

Always With Love By Giovanna Fletcher

Always With Love By Giovanna Fletcher

always with love

Sophie’s got used to being the girlfriend of Billy Buskin, the biggest movie star in the world. Sort of.

But when she and Billy take a trip to visit his family in Los Angeles, she quickly discovers she’s totally unprepared for the chaos of Hollywood, the paparazzi and Billy’s controlling mother.

And when Billy extends his stay in LA, leaving Sophie to fly home to Rosefont Hill alone, it seems there’s more than just miles between them.

Now Sophie must decide if they can overcome their differences for good. Because not every love story lasts the distance . .

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, just as much as I loved Billy and Me which is the book before this. This book can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading it as you get a background picture of all of the characters. I couldn’t wait to start this book and I found myself totally immersed in the story. This is a wonderfully romantic story and I hope this is not the last we hear of Sophie and Billy. I love Giovanna’s descriptions it really brings the book to life.

I have loved all of Milly’s books but this one is definitely my favourite. There are animals and a romance what more could you want. This was a satisfying read and the characters were brilliant, they all had their own problems and some were serious. I loved all the detailed information Milly has put into the research for the birds, I found it really informative. A really lovely feel good story.

Could the worst thing that’s ever happened to Hannah Pinkman also turn out to be one of the best?

She and her husband Dan have reached the end of the line. Bored with the same gripes, the same old arguments – in fact, bored with everything – they split up after a trivial row turns into something much more serious.

Now Hannah has to make a new life for herself, but that’s not easy. She’s been so busy being a wife and mum that she’s let all her other interests slip away, along with her friends. And when Hannah is persuaded to join a dating site, her ‘best match’ is the very last person she expects it to be .

My Thoughts:

I received this book for an honest review. I thought this book was fantastic, I loved the main character Hannah not just because she has my name but she does stuff that is hilarious though I did feel sorry for her in some parts. This is a story about the importance of friendship and rediscovering yourself. I would definitely recommend this book if you want a feel good read.

This title will be released on July 14, 2016.

True love can be hard to find. Even when it’s been right under your nose all along…

After witnessing the fallout of her parent’s divorce, love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. The only man in her life is her friend Matt–but that’s strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race…

Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, has always played it cool. Until he uncovers new depths to the girl he’s known forever, and doesn’t want to wait a moment longer.

Matt knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can he persuade her to kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

My Thoughts:

I received this book in exchange of an honest review. I really enjoy all of Sarah Morgan’s books, there is just something about them that you can just lose yourself into the story. I feel like I am revisiting old friends as this is book 2 and I would recommend reading book one so you can get some other other characters stories. A brilliant storyline as you don’t know which way Frankie will go and you find out more about her. I loved it and cannot wait for the next book.

The Day I Lost You By Fionnuala Kearney

The Day I Lost You By Fionnuala Kearney

the day i lost you

This title will be released on September 22, 2016.

THE DAY I LOST YOU WAS THE DAY I DISCOVERED I NEVER REALLY KNEW YOU

When Jess’s daughter, Anna, is reported lost in an avalanche, everything changes.

Jess’s first instinct is to protect Rose, Anna’s five-year-old daughter. But then she starts to uncover Anna’s other life – unearthing a secret that alters their whole world irrevocably . . .

THE DAY I LOST YOU WAS THE DAY YOU TORE OUR FAMILY APART.

My Thoughts:

Wow! what a page turner, I started to think as I was getting into this book that I knew what was coming and then bam!! something else happens instead that I least expected. The story is an emotional roller coaster where each chapter is spoken from Jess’ s side or Theo the local doctor’s side but also added to that is the blog that Jess’s daughter Anna wrote before she died. I wont tell you anymore as I don’t want to spoil it. I didn’t want to get off this roller coaster as I felt so involved with the characters. This is one book I will remember for a long time. Thank you to lovereading for sending me an advanced copy of this book.

Billy and Me By Giovanna Fletcher

Billy and Me By Giovanna Fletcher

gi fletcher

A gorgeously romantic novel about fame, friendship and falling in love

Sophie May has a secret.

One that she’s successfully kept for years. It’s meant that she’s had to give up her dreams of going to university and travelling the world to stay in her little village, living with her mum and working in the local teashop.

But then Sophie unexpectedly meets the gorgeous Billy Buskin – a famous actor with ambitions to make it to the top. As they begin to grow closer, Sophie finds herself whisked away from the comfort of her life into Billy’s glamorous – but ruthless – world.

After years of shying away from attention, can Sophie handle the constant scrutiny that comes with being with Billy? How much is she prepared to give up along the way? And is their love strong enough to keep them together against the odds?

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved this book and did not want it to end. I hadn’t read any of Giovanna’s books before this one and I am nit sure why as it is the type of book I would read. I am glad I have found a new author and one I will continue to look out for. The story only took me a day and a half to read, it tells the tale of Sophie May and Billy’s and how they go on a roller coaster of a romance and it is certainly a bumpy ride. I thought Sophie was a brilliant main character and I wished that her life would turn out well. I loved her friendship with Molly too. There were parts in this book that made me smile and also a part near the end that made me well up. I am sure when you come to it you know which part I mean, especially if you are like me and have experienced it with a family member. I look forward to reading more of Giovanna’s books.
