This is book three in the Pudding Pantry Series and I have enjoyed all of them, I know I am a bit late in reading this one as it is not the Summer anymore but I needed something light to read in between reading some other genres. It was the perfect pick me up, but don’t read this book on an empty stomach as all the puddings and cakes will leave you feeling hungry. I love being back here with the characters, we meet up with Rachel and Tom and hear about their upcoming wedding, but is everything as rosy as it seems? you really get a little bit of everything in this book, family, friends, romance, a great bunch of characters and most importantly some delicious puddings and sweet treats. The thing I really like about the series is in every book there are recipes, so if you fancy giving one a go, you can.
Homecoming. Sacrifice. Family. Fire. The Knights are finally reunited and ready to defeat Neci once and for all. But Neci is one step ahead and is targeting them one by one. When one of Emily’s best friends is kidnapped,
Emily leads the elite team on a rescue mission but nothing can prepare them for what Neci has planned.
This is a little bit different to my usual reads but I thought I would give it a try. This is book three in the I am series. I would say it is more aged around the younger person and is a fantasy, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. There is a good range of characters including baddie Neci who suited that role very well. Emily is a strong character who does her best to get her best friend back when kidnapped. I felt as though she is one tough cookie. I look forward to reading the first two books.

One early October afternoon, ten-year-old Jacob Rossi begins the short walk home from school. But he never makes it.
Days later, DCI Anna Tate is called to the scene of a burning building, where an awful discovery has been made. A body has been found, and the label in his school blazer reads: J. Rossi.
As Anna starts digging, she soon learns that a lot of people had grudges against the boy’s father. But would any of them go so far as to take his son?
And is the boy’s abductor closer than she thinks?
This is the third book in the DCI Anna Tate Series, you can read them as a standalone but to get a good grip of the characters I would suggest read the other two first. These books just keep getting better and better, brilliant storyline that pulls you right in. It had me gripped for the whole of the book, I did guess who the abductor was half way through but I still enjoyed this fast paced thriller. Continuing on from the last book I liked seeing where the characters were and how Anna and her Daughter’s relationship is after all this time of being apart. I am looking forward to reading the next book in great anticipation.
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..
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.

Single mum Jess has had her world turned upside down. Now it’s about to be turned inside out.
Jess has got a tough life back on track after love-of-her-life husband Simon walked out on her and their beautiful young daughters Katy and Abi. But she has long-time friend and confidante Polly to turn to…until Polly and Simon start having an affair together.
When Polly decides to apply for a job at Jess’s school, in the English department, Jess feels threatened. So why has Polly set her sights on the department head’s role? And why is the school now offering Jess a sideways ‘promotion’?
Jess can no longer trust anyone – including herself. Then out of the blue she is mysteriously sent a clipping for a temporary post in the Ministry of Education in Ghana, where she did a gap year as a teenager, and where she was happy. She is on the brink of losing everything at home but could this be a lifeline?
After reading the first two books I was excited to read this one which is the last book in the drumbeats trilogy, whilst I was sad to finish the trilogy I still couldn’t wait to get stuck in and catch up with Jess. I think the personal issues are dealt with sensitively and I found it quite sad what Jess has to go through. A powerful story.
