In therapy, Emery Pearson struggles to explain her flawed character and difficult past to Doctor Susan James.

But in order to secure her release, she must prove she is no longer a threat to anyone she could possibly fall in love with….

Ever again.

My Thoughts:

I love the fact that straight from the word go, this story is powerful, we as readers get to read about flashbacks that Emery is having and about how her life has changed. There are an interesting bunch of characters and many emotional and intriguing things along the way with family and friends. The ending left me in tears. A thought provoking read.

A Christmas Date By Camilla Isley (Book 3)

A Christmas Date By Camilla Isley (Book 3)

book 3

No one wants to be single at the holidays. 

Even Little Miss Grinch, Nikki, a successful and independent woman, must face her bachelorette status at the most horrible time of the year. December is her personal version of holly-jolly hell: a merry torture made of couples kissing at every corner, forced vacation days, and an inescapable family reunion. And when her baby sister announces she’s engaged—to Paul, the man Nikki is secretly in love with—and that he’s spending the holidays with them, Christmas starts looking bluer than ever.

Nikki can’t possibly survive an entire week trapped home as the family’s spinster. But she has no time to meet men or to try the newest dating app, she’s too busy working as a video producer for an advertising agency. So what’s a girl to do? Nikki has the perfect solution: to hire a fake boyfriend.

Luckily, her job gives her access to an endless catalog of gorgeous actors to choose from. But Nikki will soon discover that keeping business and pleasure from mixing isn’t so easy, and that she might not be immune to a little mistletoe magic. Especially not when she picked out the perfect man as her Christmas date..

My Thoughts:

This is book 3 in the series and it can be read as a standalone. This was a little cracker of a Christmas read. I loved the idea of this story and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Nikki isn’t a fan of Christmas time and has to spend it at home with her family so decided to hire a fake boyfriend, you just know it is going to be funny. Expect laughs, romance and a sprinkling of Christmas spirit.

I Have Never By Camilla Isley (Book 2)

book 2.jpg

Twenty-nine-year-old Blair Walker is a girl with a plan, or more a girl with a list. A list of dos and don’ts to live the perfect life, land a dream career, and marry Mr. Right.

But when Blair loses her job and gets dumped by her boyfriend all in one day, she starts to wonder if she’s had it all wrong. And what better way to find out than experience everything the list forbade?

  • Never Lie
  • Never Pick a Fight
  • Never Make a Scene
  • Never Make the First Move
  • Never Make Impulse Decisions
  • Never Mix Business and Pleasure…

With hilarious consequences, Blair will discover some items are trickier to tick off than she’d thought…

My Thoughts:

After reading the first book in this series I couldn’t wait to read this one. I enjoyed this one even more as there are more laughs along the way. This book can be read as a standalone but I honestly can say you will want to read them all. I found the story line very imaginative and exciting. It definitely cheered me up.

Love Connection By Camilla Isley (Book 1)

Love Connection By Camilla Isley (Book 1)

book 1

Have you ever wondered what might have been?
Gemma is at the airport, staring at two plane tickets to two different cities. Two different weddings. Two different futures. She’s at a crossroads.

Be maid of honor at her best friend’s wedding or crash her ex’s?

Gemma’s decision, unknown to her, hinges on a delayed flight and a chance meeting. Now her life is about to go down two parallel tracks–will Gemma fly toward a life with her first love or a future with a man she’s not even met yet?

In concurrent storylines, Gemma lives out the consequences of each journey. Different stories unravel with unpredictable outcomes for Gemma and her loved ones.

My Thoughts:

This is the first book in the series, they can all be read as a standalone though. I found Camilla has a way that she manages to connect with her readers and her writing is really thought out. In this story we meet Gemma and the chapters switch from her going to her best mate and also her going to her ex. I loved getting to know the characters and look forward to the next instalment.

I Invited Her In By Adele Parks

I Invited Her In By Adele Parks

‘I invited her in… and she took everything.’

When Mel hears from a long-lost friend in need of help, she doesn’t hesitate to invite her to stay. Mel and Abi were best friends back in the day, sharing the highs and lows of student life, until Mel’s unplanned pregnancy made her drop out of her studies.

Now, seventeen years later, Mel and Abi’s lives couldn’t be more different. Mel is happily married, having raised her son on her own before meeting her husband, Ben. Now they share gorgeous girls and have a chaotic but happy family home, with three children.

Abi, meanwhile, followed her lover to LA for a glamorous life of parties, celebrity and indulgence. Everything was perfect, until she discovered her partner had been cheating on her. Seventeen years wasted, and nothing to show for it. So what Abi needs now is a true friend to lean on, to share her grief over a glass of wine, and to have some time to heal. And what better place than Mel’s house, with her lovely kids, and supportive husband…

My Thoughts:

I found this story really engrossing. I have to say I did work out one of the twists quite early on but it did nothing to stop me from reading on. The story drew me in and I felt mesmerised about what was going to happen. The story involves around jealousy, revenge, and betrayal. I haven’t read many books by this author before and I will certainly be looking out for her books now.

Jess Castle and the Eyeballs of Death By M. B. Vincent

Jess Castle and the Eyeballs of Death By M. B. Vincent

jess castle.jpg

Jess Castle is running away. Again. This time she’s running back home, like she swore she never would.

Castle Kidbury, like all small towns, hums with gossip but now it’s plagued with murder of the most gruesome kind. Jess instinctively believes that the hippyish cult camped out on the edge of town are not responsible for the spate of crucifixions that blights the pretty landscape. Her father, a respected judge, despairs of Jess as she infiltrates the cult and manages, not for the first time, to get herself arrested.

Rupert Lawson, a schooldays crush who’s now a barrister, bails her out. Jess ropes in a reluctant Rupert as she gatecrashes the murder investigation of DS Eden. A by-the-book copper, Eden has to admit that intuitive, eccentric Jess has the nose of a detective.

As the gory murders pile up, there’s nothing to connect the victims. And yet, the clues are there if you look hard enough.

My Thoughts:

If you like a fast paced story that has humour added in then this is the book for you. The plot is mysterious and the characters are all interesting and quirky. The book centres on Jess who returns to her home town after a mishap and she gets herself caught up in all sorts. There are lots of clues along the way and red herrings and the ending was fantastic.

More Than A Feeling By Cate Woods

More Than A Feeling By Cate Woods

cate woods

In her twenties, Annie Taylor was sorted: she had her dream job, an amazing social life and was happily single. She had bags of confidence and played up her likeness to a young Barbra Streisand in turbans and winged eyeliner. Annie knew exactly who she was, and her future looked bright and full of adventures.
Life, however, hasn’t turned out quite how she expected. Now Annie is living with her boyfriend Luke and is a stay-at-home mum to their baby daughter, Dot. The promising career has petered out, and with it her confidence and creativity. And when Luke does the unforgivable, Annie finds herself suddenly, terrifyingly, on her own.

With the help of her group of loyal friends, Annie faces the challenge of trying to reconcile the glamorous, carefree Annie of old with the knackered mum-of-one she sees in the mirror today. Is old Annie gone forever, or could this finally be the chance to find herself once more?

My Thoughts:

Such a lovely read and I am so glad I have read it. I really liked Annie and her little daughter Dot, the story line is one that I think people could relate to. I found it humorous and witty and you can tell Annie is trying to rediscover herself and wants to rebuild her life. A really good read.
