Jane of Manchester By J.G.Dow

Jane’s life on the face of it isn’t really too bad…she has great friends like party girl Natasha who’s always up for a laugh and her close pal Polly, always there for her and of course her loving parents, but things could still be better…

Most people she knows are either married or have kids and she has been single a while now and wonders if a good man is ever to be encountered again. The single life is far from a quiet one for Jane however, as she is constantly getting dragged to night clubs and bars by Natasha and the crew as well as enduring a particularly boozy weekend away at the seaside!

Jane loves a lot about her life, disregarding rude plumbers in her flat and dealing with annoying superiors and a smug sister, but as a certain someone takes her eye, is everything about to change and get a whole lot more serious or is the single life determined to keep her captive a while longer yet…

My Thoughts:

This is the story of Jane who is a thirty year old woman who lives alone in the North of England. She has lots of things going for her including loving parents, supportive friends, a job and a supportive job but the thing Jane would love is a relationship and someone to love her. She sees all her friends in relationships or who are married and she wants it too. The book is well written and is written in the first person. There are some quite funny situations she gets herself into. I was surprised to learn this is the author’s debut novel as I found it better than some of the more well known authors books that I have read.

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

rowan coleman

This title will be released on June 29, 2017.

If you could change the past, would you?

It is only after her mother’s death that Luna begins to discover her secrets.

While in New York to settle the estate, something impossible happens to Luna. She finds herself in 1977, face to face with her mother as a young woman, in the week that changed her life forever.

If time can be turned back, can it also be rewritten? Luna becomes convinced she can save her mother from the moment that will eventually drive her to suicide.

But in doing anything – everything – to save her mother’s life, will Luna have to sacrifice her own?

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to receive an advanced copy of this book. I have really enjoyed Rowan’s previous novels and couldn’t wait to start this one. It is a very different story to one I have read before but I was pulled in nether the less and couldn’t put it down. Luna can transport herself back to 1977. The story flits between the present and 1977. Luna wonders whether she can re write what happened to her mother back then, but can she?

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.
