The Last piece of my Heart By Paige Toon

When life feels like a puzzle, sometimes it’s the small pieces that make up the bigger picture… Join Bridget on a journey to put her world back together.

A successful travel journalist, Bridget has ambitions to turn her quirky relationship blog about the missing pieces of her heart into a book. But after a spate of rejections from publishers, she accepts an alternative proposition.

Nicole Dupré died leaving behind a bestselling novel and an incomplete sequel. Tasked with finishing the book, Bridget is thankful to have her foot in the publishing door, even if it means relocating to Cornwall for the summer and answering to Nicole’s grieving husband, Charlie

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, anything that is written by Paige Toon is utterly moving and beautifully written. You know what you are going to get and you get it. I laughed, I cried and I was hooked from the first chapter. I loved little April, she is such a sweetheart with some of the things that she does. I really look forward to the next book.

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

The sun is shining in the quiet little seaside town of Sandybridge

Sandybridge is the perfect English seaside town: home to gift shops, tea rooms and a fabulous fish and chip shop. And it’s home to Grace – although right now, she’s not too happy about it.

Grace grew up in Sandybridge, helping her parents sort junk from vintage treasures, but she always longed to escape to a bigger world. And she made it, travelling the world for her job, falling in love and starting a family. So why is she back in the tiny seaside town she’d long left behind, hanging out with Charlie, the boy who became her best friend when they were teenagers?

It turns out that travelling the world may not have been exactly what Grace needed to do. Perhaps everything she wanted has always been at home – after all, they do say that’s where the heart is..

My Thoughts:

I was very lucky to receive an advanced copy of this book. I like Ali’s books I always find them enjoyable. The story itself I liked as it was a bit different. I loved the letters written by Remy such a fantastic idea which I didn’t think would work but it does. We find out about Grace and the story flicks back to when she was younger and her two friends Charlie and Danny. I really enjoyed this story. I didn’t want it to end.

All’s fair in love and war …

1854. England is in the grip of a gruesome war.

Lucy Harvington, ill-educated beyond how to be a wife, has travelled to the Crimea with her handsome and impetuous officer husband Charlie.
As the day of battle dawns she can only pray her husband survives. If he doesn’t, what will become of her?

Dorothea Gray, volunteer nurse at the Westminster Hospital, is determined to follow her little sister Lucy to the front and to serve her country alongside her heroine Florence Nightingale and the pioneering nurses already risking their lives.

But neither sister could possibly have known the horrors they are about to witness – the courage, the cowardice, the danger – and the excitement – nor could they have guessed the risks they must take, the passion they will taste, and the simple fact that they may never see one another again …

My Thoughts:

I was given an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I found this book superb, it is mainly to do with what the women did in the war and follows Lucy Harvington who travels to the Crimea with her husband Charlie who is an officer, what she has to witness is truly horrifying and the conditions she has to live in are awful, the other part of the story focuses on her Lucy’s sister Dorothea, who is a nurse and she follows her sister to help serve her country. Her story I found fascinating, though some parts are awful as you can expect. I love the way Dorothea was with her patients and she meets Florence Nightingale which was interesting to read about. After reading this book, I have decided I would like to read more books about our women who served in the war. Such a brilliant read, I couldn’t put down.

EENY MEENY BY M. J . Arlidge

EENY MEENY BY M. J . Arlidge

The girl emerged from the woods, barely alive. Her story was beyond belief. But it was true. Every dreadful word of it.

Days later, another desperate escapee is found – and a pattern is emerging. Pairs of victims are being abducted, imprisoned then faced with a terrible choice: kill or be killed.

Would you rather lose your life or lose your mind?

Detective Inspector Helen Grace has faced down her own demons on her rise to the top. As she leads the investigation to hunt down this unseen monster, she learns that it may be the survivors – living calling cards – who hold the key to the case.

And unless she succeeds, more innocents will die . .

My Thoughts:

Loved this book right from the start. Not a big fan on Thrillers but this is a definite must for people wanting to try a different genre. The characters were brilliantly strong and the M. J. has done well to incorporate all their different stories together without making it confusing. I loved the fact there were so many twists and turns. I didn’t expect what was coming next and was certainly surprised by what did happen. Brilliant ending and look forward to reading the next book as I have heard it is even better.

My Thoughts:

I have read all of Trisha Ashley’s book so far and really enjoyed them.This story is about finding love where you least expect it. Trisha Ashley is a brilliant author and this book was really funny. When I started it I wasn’t sure if it would hold my interest,  but after the first chapter I knew I would like it. The characters all interlinked with one another but had their own agenda.I would say not her best book but I enjoyed it.
