She’s moved on…

Felicity Knight loves New York. But when she spots her ex-husband in the city, Fliss is desperate to escape!

He’s moved back…

Vet Seth Carlyle is back from California to establish his own practice and settle down. When he learns that his ex Fliss still lives close by, that future is looking a whole lot brighter…

Will a perfect escape bring them back together?

With the help of his adorable dog Lulu, and a sprinkling of beachside magic, Seth is determined to make Fliss see he’s never stopped loving her!

My Thoughts:

I doubt I will ever tire of Sarah Morgan’s books they are just all too good. Some of the characters we have met or have been mentioned in previous stories. The characters are all likeable and it is an easy read. There is a very handsome vet, an ex girlfriend and some animals too what more could you not like? I read this book in two sittings and cannot wait for the next one.

I was given an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

The Silent Witness By Casey Watson

The Silent Witness By Casey Watson

This title will be released on June 1, 2017.

‘I’m so sorry, Casey,’ my link worker John said, sounding weary. ‘I know this is probably the worst time I could ring you, but we desperately need someone to take a child tonight.’

It’s the night before Christmas when Casey and Mike get the call. A twelve year old girl, stuck between a rock and a hard place. Her father is on a ventilator, fighting for his life, while her mother is currently on remand in prison. Despite claiming she attacked him in self-defence, she’s been charged with his attempted murder.

The girl is called Bella, and she’s refusing to say anything. The trouble is that she is also the only witness…

My Thoughts:

I have read quite a few of Casey Watson’s books and find them utterly heartbreaking by what some of the children have been through. You can’t ever imagine it. Casey Watson is a foster carer and these are her stories from the previous children she has looked after. I think she does an amazing job helping the children. This story is about twelve year old Bella and we discover why she is refusing to say anything. A sad story but one that has a happy ending.

I was given a ARC of this book for an honest review.

Summer with the Country Village Vet By Zara Stoneley

Summer with the Country Village Vet By Zara Stoneley

zara stonely

When Lucy Jacobs is made redundant from her inner-city teaching job she fears her career is over. Teaching is all Lucy knows and she’s determined to get back in the classroom as fast as she can.

Except the only job on offer is at an idyllic village school in the middle of nowhere – Lucy’s idea of hell. Where are the disadvantaged kids who need saving, where is the challenge?

But as Lucy finds herself welcomed into the warm-hearted community of Langtry Meadows, she begins to realise new challenges await – like frogs in the classroom, a rather difficult donkey, and a very brooding local vet…

Local boy Charlie Davenport has his own issues about living in the close-knit village of Langtry Meadows. His private life is already fuel for the well-meaning gossips and the very last thing he needs is to get close to the new school teacher…no matter how lovely she is.

But as summer days drift away Langtry Meadows weaves its magic, Charlie and Lucy both get the chance to turn over a new leaf and start anew…maybe with each other?

My Thoughts:

I couldn’t wait for this book to come out, the cover is so vibrant and makes you think of the Summer. I definitely found I could relate to the main character Lucy, I felt as though I really liked her alot. There is a certain charm about the story as it is set in an idyllic country village. This is the first book in the series and I can’t wait to read the rest of them. Brilliant writing once again from an exceptional author.

Shelter By Sarah Franklin

Shelter By Sarah Franklin

sarah franklin

This title will be released on July 27, 2017.

Early spring 1944.
In a clearing deep within an English forest two lost souls meet for the first time.

Connie Granger has escaped the devastation of her bombed out city home. She has found work in the Women’s Timber Corps, and for her, this remote community must now serve a secret purpose.

Seppe, an Italian prisoner of war, is haunted by his memories. But in the forest camp, he finds a strange kind of freedom.

Their meeting signals new beginnings. In each other they find the means to imagine their own lives anew, and to face that which each fears the most.

But outside their haven, the world is ravaged by war and old certainties are crumbling. Both Connie and Seppe must make a life-defining choice which threatens their fragile existence. How will they make sense of this new world, and find their place within it? What does it mean to be a woman, or a foreign man, in these days of darkness and new light?

My Thoughts:

I was given a advanced reading copy of this book. I was looking for something different to read from my usual types of genres and I came across this book. It is set in 1944’s and we find out about Connie Granger and her life growing up and how she comes to work for the Women’s Timber Corps. We also meet Seppe who is Italian and he is a prisoner of War and it is about how the two of them get to know each other through working as Timber Corps. I found the start quite slow but I decided to persist and I am glad I did. I found the story deeply moving and it made me more aware what women would do in those days to protect till the end.

Hannah Hodges can’t believe her luck when she’s offered a trip to sunny Spain with her best friend and dreamy boss . . . but what’s the catch?

‘Fresh, fun and full of sexual tension… a perfect spring read’ Heat

Twenty-eight year old Hannah is ready for an adventure. She and her colleagues are in Spain for a month to film a documentary, and it’s a dream come true. Not least because Hannah will get to spend long summer days with Theo, her boss (and gorgeous crush). It couldn’t be a more perfect setting to fall in love…

If only Tom (Hannah’s best friend and cameramen) and Claudette (the presenter) would stop getting in the way…

Then things become even more complicated when Nancy, Hannah’s half-sister arrives. What on earth is she doing here?

For just once in her life, can’t Hannah have one perfect summer, free of any drama?

My Thoughts:

I won this book in a competition and couldn’t wait to start reading it. Isabelle is a new author to me and I really can’t work out why I have never read any of her books before as this one was fantastic. I will definitely be looking out for her other books to read. The cover looks really stunning and I think it is the perfect beach read. It sounded like such a beautiful place that it almost makes me want to pack up my bags and go. A perfect read to escape to.

…But what if that’s the only thing you can remember?

Komméno Island, Greece: I don’t know where I am, who I am. Help me.

A woman is washed up on a remote Greek island with no recollection of who she is or how she got there.

Potter’s Lane, Twickenham, London: Eloïse Shelley is officially missing.

Lochlan’s wife has vanished into thin air, leaving their toddler and twelve-week-old baby alone. Her money, car and passport are all in the house, with no signs of foul play. Every clue the police turn up means someone has told a lie…

Does a husband ever truly know his wife? Or a wife know her husband? Why is Eloïse missing? Why did she forget?

The truth is found in these pages…

My Thoughts:

I received a advanced reading copy of this book or an honest review. After reading the blurb for this book I was intrigued about how the story would unfold. I loved it, it keeps you guessing till the end, I was imagining all different kind of scenario’s but was not expecting the one that came about. I found the writing very descriptive and bold. There are sensitive issues which the author has written really well. I would definitely like to read more of this author’s books.

The Woman at Number 24 By Juliet Ashton

The Woman at Number 24 By Juliet Ashton

juliet ashton

When your marriage falls apart, the last place you’d want your husband to move to is downstairs. Unfortunately for Sarah, up in the eaves at number 24, her ex-husband now lives one floor beneath her with his new wife. Their happiness floats up through the floorboards, taunting her.

A child psychologist, Sarah has picked up great sadness from the little girl, Una, who lives with her careworn mother three floors below, but is Sarah emotionally equipped to reach out?

The Spring brings a new couple to the house. Jane and Tom‘s zest for life revives the flagging spirits, and Sarah can’t deny the instant attraction to handsome Tom. Having seen at first hand what infidelity does to people, she’ll never act on it … but the air fizzes with potential.

The sunshine doesn’t reach every corner of number 24, however. Elderly Mavis, tucked away in the basement, has kept the world at bay for decades. She’s about to find out that she can’t hide forever.

My Thoughts:

I won this book in a competition, I was glad I won as this book looked really good even though I had not heard of the author before. I like the fact it is set in a house where multiple residents live. I loved getting to know each and everyone of the residents and hearing about their lives. I loved the way how Sarah is with little Una and how she helps her uncover her voice. Brilliantly told, was sad to come to the end.
