The Summer We Danced By Fiona Harper

Shall we dance?

After a humiliating divorce and watching her former rock star husband leave her for a model live on reality TV, Pippa is determined to disappear. So she returns to the small Kent village where she grew up to make a fresh start.

Little did she know that would mean saving her beloved childhood dance school or falling for her old school crush Tom too!

My Thoughts:

I received a copy of this book for an honest review. I love Fiona’s books there is something so uplifting about them. I love the fact that between dancing there is a lovely little romance going on. You don’t have to love dance to love this book, I really enjoyed it and learnt some things about dance too.All the characters are good and I liked the sound of Miss Mimi. I got swept away with the whole story and I am looking forward to Fiona’s next book with great anticipation.

The Swimming Pool By Louise Candlish

The Swimming Pool By Louise Candlish

This title will be released on May 5, 2016.

In the heady swelter of a London summer, the Elm Hill lido opens.

For teacher Natalie Steele, the school holiday typically means weeks of carefully planned activities with her husband Ed and their daughter Molly. But not this year.

Despite Molly’s extreme phobia of the water, Natalie is drawn to the lido and its dazzling social scene, led by the glamorous Lara Channing. Soon Natalie is spending long, intoxicating days with Lara at the pool – and intimate evenings at her home. Natalie’s real life begins to feel very far away.

But is the new friendship everything it seems? Why is Natalie haunted by memories from another summer years ago? And, without realising, has she been swept dangerously out of her depth?

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book from lovereading so want to say thank you for them for sending me a copy. I have always loved Louise Candlish books, this one didn’t disappoint either. The first book I got to review was by Louise Candlish and I have not looked back since. Louise has a brilliant way that just draws you into her characters worlds, her writing is exceptional. There are twists and turns that will leave you thinking oh my god did that just happen, you think you may know what is going to happen but trust me you don’t. An outstanding book you will want to get your hands on.

The years of Loving You By Ella Harper

The years of Loving You By Ella Harper

This title will be released on November 19, 2015.

What if your first love was your only love?

When Molly is diagnosed with a life changing illness, it feels like her whole world has come crashing down. She hopes the news will make her marriage to Sam stronger. But why does Molly always call best friend Ed in a crisis?

Ed. The very same Ed that Molly fell in love with at a party when they were teenagers, underneath a star-filled sky. Then life took them in very different directions. They could only ever be friends.

Suddenly Molly starts to question every decision she’s ever made. What if they could turn back the clock? Back to the very beginning. When the only certainty they shared was each other …

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. I have not read any of Ella Harper’s books before but I really enjoyed this one. I knew from reading the back it would be a weepy kind of read and it was but it also had a love story to go with it. I found I warmed alot to Molly the main character and I did feel sorry for what she had to go through with her life changing illness. I really didn’t like her husband Sam what a coward, I couldn’t believe some of the stuff he said to Molly. Even though it kept on flitting between the different characters and the past and present it was easy to work out what was going on. Apart from Sam I liked all the characters, this is a emotional story but also one to make you stop and think. Lots of twists and turns made for a perfect read.

The One Plus One By JoJo Moyes

The One Plus One By JoJo Moyes

One eternal optimist…..

Jess Thomas, with two jobs and two kids and never enough money, wears flip-flops in the hope of spring. And when life knocks her down she does her best to bounce right back. But there are some challenges even she can’t meet on her own.

Plus one lost stranger…

Ed Nichols is the good guy gone bad. He had it all, then one stupid mistake cost him everything. Now he’ll do anything to make it right.

Equals a chance encounter…..

Ed doesn’t want to save anyone and Jess doesn’t want saving, but could Jess and Ed add up to something better together?

My Thoughts:

JoJo Moyes has done it again, another brilliant book one I couldn’t put down. JoJo has a way of bringing her characters to life. I loved the face most of the book was set in the car, but don’t be put off as its spectacularly funny and most of it is true to life. I loved the kids Tanzie and Nicky even though they both had their imperfections, they were both pretty amazing kids. I found myself drawn to Jess and hoped that she has a nice outcome by the end of the story. Not a lot of readers comment on the covers of books but I particularly found this one delightful and with such simplicity, you just know it will be a fantastic read. This story was emotional but it will touch your heart. There is a lot of praise for JoJo Moyes. Look forward to her next book.
