From The Shadows By Neil White

From The Shadows By Neil White

He hides in the shadows, watching, waiting, until the time is right . . . 

Mary Kendricks, a smart, pretty, twenty-four-year-old teacher, has been brutally murdered and Robert Carter is accused of killing her.

When defence lawyer, Dan Grant inherits Carter’s case only weeks before the trial starts, everyone expects him just to babysit it, but Dan’s not that kind of lawyer. He’ll follow the evidence – wherever it takes him.

But as Dan and his investigator Jayne Brett look into the case, they discover that there is more to it than meets the eye. In order to do their jobs they need to push the limits of the system, even if it means putting themselves in danger.

Together they will get to the truth – whatever the cost . . .

My Thoughts:

I had never read any of Neil’s books before and was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I did find the beginning a little slow but once I had got over that, there was no stopping me. This book had me guessing till the very end, lots of brilliant characters and a superb plot.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

The Other Us By Fiona Harper

The Other Us By Fiona Harper

This title will be released on May 4, 2017.

If you could turn back time, would you choose a different life?

Forty-something Maggie is facing some hard truths. Her only child has flown the nest for university and, without her daughter in the house, she’s realising her life, and her marriage to Dan, is more than a little stale.

When she spots an announcement on Facebook about a uni reunion, she can’t help wondering what happened to Jude Hanson. The same night Dan proposed, Jude asked Maggie to run away with him, and she starts to wonder how different her life might have been if she’d broken Dan’s heart and taken Jude up on his offer.

Wondering turns into fantasising, and then one morning fantasising turns into reality. Maggie wakes up and discovers she’s back in 1992 and twenty-one again. Is she brave enough to choose the future she really wants, and if she is, will the grass be any greener on the other side of the fence?

Two men. Two very different possible futures. But is there only once chance at happiness?

My Thoughts:

I was very happy to receive this new book by Fiona Harper, I have always enjoyed Fiona’s books so was excited to get her latest novel. The story is unlike anything I have ever read before and I think it really worked as it really makes you think what you would do in that situation. I know for a fact that I would always pick the life that I have with my husband and I would never change it for the world as I love him very much,  but Maggie has to decide what life she wants to live with and what man she wants and it is a hard decision for her.

Could the worst thing that’s ever happened to Hannah Pinkman also turn out to be one of the best?

She and her husband Dan have reached the end of the line. Bored with the same gripes, the same old arguments – in fact, bored with everything – they split up after a trivial row turns into something much more serious.

Now Hannah has to make a new life for herself, but that’s not easy. She’s been so busy being a wife and mum that she’s let all her other interests slip away, along with her friends. And when Hannah is persuaded to join a dating site, her ‘best match’ is the very last person she expects it to be .

My Thoughts:

I received this book for an honest review. I thought this book was fantastic, I loved the main character Hannah not just because she has my name but she does stuff that is hilarious though I did feel sorry for her in some parts. This is a story about the importance of friendship and rediscovering yourself. I would definitely recommend this book if you want a feel good read.

The Great Village Show By Alexandra Brown

The Great Village Show By Alexandra Brown

 

 

Tindledale is in a tizzy . . .

The Village Show competition is coming around again and after last year’s spectacular failure, the villagers are determined to win. Meg, teacher at the local school, is keen to help and to impose some much-needed order.

After a terse encounter with a newcomer to the village, Meg discovers that it is celebrity chef and culinary bad boy, Dan Wright. Meg thinks he is arrogant and rude but rumour has it that Dan is opening a new restaurant in the village which could really put Tindledale on the map.

As things come together, villagers old and new all start to come out of the woodwork, including new arrival Jessie who seems to have it all. But first impressions can be deceptive and Meg discovers that when it comes to Tindledale – and Dan – nothing is ever quite as it seems . . .

My Thoughts:

This was such a lovely heart warming story, it is a book that you wont want to put down with it’s well written story, loveable characters and perfect ending. This book does follow on from The Great Christmas Knit off which I have yet to read but can be read as a stand alone. I love how all the villagers rally round to help Meg set up the Village show. Tindledale sounds such a lovely little village which you can just imagine yourself there.

Sophie’s Turn (Part 1 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy) By Nicky Wells

Sophie’s Turn (Part 1 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy) By Nicky Wells

 

Slapper? Slut? Adulteress? Sophie Penhalligan’s life and moral universe is turned upside down when rock star Dan proposes to her in full knowledge that she is already engaged. She has always loved Dan, in a remote-crush kind of way. She thinks she loves her fiancé, Tim. What is she to do?

It’s all happening because her past has come to tempt her. Nine years ago, she met her teenage idol and rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, up close and personal. Well, almost!

Now Dan has crash-landed back in her life just as Sophie is happily embroiled in a relationship with Tim, her boyfriend of two years. Until recently, she was confident Tim would eventually propose. But while his persistent inaction is beginning to cast a cloud over their relationship, Dan’s sudden reappearance poses a whole new dilemma.

Having accompanied Dan’s band to Paris, Sophie suddenly finds herself engaged to Dan while her erstwhile fiancé Tim is… well, doing whatever it is Tim does back in London. Torn between the dream-come-true and the sensible-thing-to-do, Sophie concludes her inadvertent journey of self-discovery with an ending that surprises herself, and everyone around her.

Sophie’s Turn is a glamorous contemporary fairy tale that will make chick-lit and romance lovers laugh, cry and rock along every step of the way.

My Thoughts:

I was given this book for an honest review, and I can honestly say I absolutely loved this book. Reading this book made me feel like I really understood the characters and really felt what they were going through. I think I could relate to Sophie as she is just a normal young girl who is still trying to find herself even when everything else is settling down. She realises that she has lost part of herself whilst trying to decide what she wants, which I think some women may relate to. I thoroughly enjoyed this read.
