Bells and Bows on Mistletoe Row By Emily Harvale

Bells and Bows on Mistletoe Row By Emily Harvale

bells

The last person Juliet Bell expects to see when she returns home for Christmas is Harrison Bow. Especially with the most beautiful woman in the world by his side. Twenty years ago, Juliet and Harrison had the shortest romance in history, consisting of one date – and one blazing row.

But Juliet will never admit when she’s wrong, and Harrison doesn’t forgive easily, so they haven’t seen, or spoken to one another since. Harrison Bow vowed he’d never visit his grandfather at The Grange, again, or drive along Mistletoe Row, the scene of one of the unhappiest times of his life. He hasn’t been back for twenty years and he’s only here now because his brother pleaded with him to come.

At least with his executive assistant joining him, he’ll be able to do some work. But Juliet’s sister, Zoe and Harrison’s brother, Luke have some surprises in store for their elder siblings, and so it seems does Fate. After Harrison risks his life to save Juliet, the least she can do is be nice.

The problem is, Harrison is hotter than the log fire in The Mistletoe pub, and when she’s surrounded by twinkling lights and softly falling snow, it doesn’t take long for her to realise she’s in love with the man she thought she hated. Even if he doesn’t appear to be in love with her.

My Thoughts:

I read this book within a few hours, it is a nice easy read that will melt your heart. It is romantic and fun and all based around Christmas time. There are some wonderful characters in the story and a bit of misunderstanding soon gets sorted out. I have read it after Christmas and I would say it is still acceptable. A perfect read for anyone who wants a easy read.

Blame it on the Moonlight (Michaelmas Bay Book 2) By Emily Harvale

Blame it on the Moonlight (Michaelmas Bay Book 2) By Emily Harvale

emily harvale

We don’t always get what we want. Luna Blake wants a fresh start. Moving in with her uncle will give her that. She also wants to earn a living from her photographs and paintings of the moon. What she doesn’t want is to fall in love because the last time she did that, it broke her heart in two.

Severine Starr wants to spend as little time as possible visiting her family. She wants to get back to her new man and her new life in New York. She simply needs to persuade her teenage daughter, Raven to go with her. But things at home are far from how she left them. Logan Dorset always wanted to open his own restaurant – and now he is. He also wants a woman he can’t have.

A woman he’s been in love with all his life. A woman who’s in love with someone else. He just wants a chance to tell her how he feels. Roggero Tazzeone disappeared from Michaelmas Bay more than fifteen years ago. Now he’s back and he’s trying to make up for his past mistakes. After all this time, he knows exactly what he wants.

But strange things can happen in the moonlight, and what each of them wants may not be as straightforward as they think.

My Thoughts:

I have read all of Emily’s books and they never fail to cheer me up. This book follows on from book one which is called Christmas secrets in Snowflake cove, we follow some of the old characters and we also get to meet new characters along the way too. The story is well written as are all of Emily’s stories and descriptive which makes you feel as though you are there. It makes you want to read the book in a day which I did.

Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove: Volume 1 (Michaelmas Bay) By Emily Harvale

Christmas Secrets in Snowflake Cove: Volume 1 (Michaelmas Bay) By Emily Harvale

emily

Christmas is a time for family and friends, miracles and magic, falling snow and roaring fires, fun, laughter and festive feasts. In Snowflake Cove, it’s also a time for secrets to be revealed… Evie Starr is hoping for more than a sprinkling of magic this Christmas.

The family-run Snowflake Inn is virtually empty and the Starr’s financial future isn’t looking bright. But Evie’s gran, Jessie has a secret that might help. Enigmatic, Zachary Thorn is every woman’s dream. He’s also ex-SAS, so his secrets are classified. The Christmas Special of his feel-good, TV show is set in Michaelmas Bay – until a phone call means he’s spending Christmas in nearby Snowflake Cove.

Evie’s best friend, Juniper thinks boyfriend Darren has a secret. Evie knows he does. And Evie’s niece, Raven is hiding feelings for Juniper’s brother – who has a secret crush of his own. But the biggest secret in Snowflake Cove is the identity of Raven’s dad.

With snow falling thick and fast and secrets being revealed one after another, will everyone be snuggling up by the fire on Christmas Eve, or are some secrets best kept hidden…?

My Thoughts:

If you haven’t read one of Emily’s books before why not? They are utterly brilliant. They have romance, friends, family and hot guys, what’s more great is this one is set around Christmas. I loved getting to know the characters and I liked the sound of Zach quite a lot. A brilliant Christmas read that will get you in the Christmas spirit.

It Takes Two By Emily Harvale

It Takes Two By Emily Harvale

emily h

Alison Warner knows love doesn’t always last. Wedded bliss is hit and miss and she’s not taking any chances. She’s the daughter of divorce lawyers, so Ali knows the statistics by heart. Now her parents are adding to the numbers and Ali’s more certain than ever: marriage is not for her.

Others do not share her views. Her cousin Sasha’s got engaged; her best friend Jules is giving ‘Bridezilla’ new meaning and even her crazy gran, Gertie’s dogs are getting hitched. When her life-long friend, Simon Hart unexpectedly proposes, Ali’s convinced the world’s gone mad.

Having an arrogant new boss is the last thing Ali needs right now. Aidan Rourke has come to run The Shimmering River and Water Sports Centre – a job that should have been Ali’s. But at least she can be sure of one thing. Marriage is definitely not on Aidan’s mind. Although it’s abundantly clear something else is…

My Thoughts:

Another brilliant read from the lovely Emily Harvale. Emily really knows how to write a love story at it’s best. I think from this book is that communication is key to a healthy relationship. I wonder if there will be more from these characters as I felt as though I had only just got to know them which I suppose I had but we will have to wait and see.

The Starlight Ball: Volume 2 (Hall’s Cross)By Emily Harvale

The Starlight Ball: Volume 2 (Hall’s Cross)By Emily Harvale

emily harvale

Wishes can come true. Harri (Harriet) Hall is brimming over with happiness since returning to her ancestral home, The Hall and her eccentric, big-hearted family. But her blissful state has more to do with meeting the love of her life, Lance Knightly.

Now her greatest wish is for her stepsister, Merrion, her stepbrother, Ralph, and Lance’s younger sister, Gwen to find similar joy. And what better way is there to hurry love along than dancing beneath a starlit sky?

Harri’s convinced that with some careful planning she can get her wish. But Love it seems, may already have plans of its own…

My Thoughts:

I am a huge fan of Emily’s books and always get excited to be sent an advanced reading copy. Emily’s books are nice easy to get into short reads and I can never get enough of them and always read them within a day. It was exciting to get back to Harriet’s world and to see what is going on now. I love the fact this story kind of centres around animals and the animal sanctuary, it makes it even more enjoyable to read.

Deck the Halls By Emily Harvale

Deck the Halls By Emily Harvale

emily-harvale

Harri (Harriet) Hall thinks Christmas will be perfect in her ancestral home, The Hall, with roaring log fires, scented pine trees, sparkling decorations, and mouth-watering, festive feasts. She’s been abroad for the last two years and is excited about introducing her, admittedly quirky, family, and The Hall, to her boyfriend, Art (Arthur) and his family, the Camlan-Browns.

She soon finds things have changed. The family funds are dwindling fast and The Hall looks like a dilapidated pile. But Harri has her savings and it won’t take long to spruce it up. Although letting Lance Knightly do the renovation, may be a big mistake. There’s something about the man, Harri really doesn’t like.

She needs to keep an eye on him. Snow is gently falling and preparations are going well – until Harri’s stepbrother blows up the cooker; water leaks through the roof and blizzards arrive before the Camlan-Browns. Will Art get through the snow by Christmas Eve, and will Lance finish work on The Hall in time?

Harri’s perfectly capable of dealing with a crisis as well as any man, but it seems Christmas may not turn out quite as she expected.

My Thoughts:

I am a big fan of Emily’s books and I always recommend them. This is a bit different to Emily’s previous novels as in this one she only writes from one characters perspective. It was brilliant as I could focus more on Harriet herself. I wish I could of been there it all sounded magical, the hall, the two young twins and also Lance, he sounded very nice. I felt as though I was a part of their Christmas celebrations. A wonderful Christmas story.

Dancing in the Rain By Emily Harvale

Dancing in the Rain By Emily Harvale

danicng-in-the-rain

Dancing in the Rain Happiness comes when you least expect it When Rachel Simpson’s boyfriend, Drew, suggested they should take a break, she thought he meant together, so she rented a holiday cottage in the picturesque village of Hideaway Down for the perfect, autumn getaway surprise.

Except she was the one who got the surprise and now she is spending a week alone in a cottage by the sea. Not quite the fun, romantic break she was hoping for. Lucas Webb needs to get his act together – or so his friends keep telling him.

He’s been like a bear with a sore head since his girlfriend dumped him… and that was several months ago. Perhaps a change of scene is what he needs. At least he still has Monty, his beloved dog… and a break by the sea will probably do them both some good.

Is it simply bad luck that this is one of the wettest, windiest autumn weeks since records began? Or does the universe work in mysterious ways?

My Thoughts:

I have always enjoyed Emily’s books and this was a fantastic read too. This is book four of the Hideaway Down series, you can read it as a standalone but I would highly recommend reading the previous books as you can meet all the characters and you get a little bit of a background with them. Returning to Hideaway Down was like meeting friends that you haven’t seen for a while and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. It is a really well written book and put together book. I even took this book on holiday with me and when two ladies asked me what I was reading, I was happy to recommend this book and all of Emily’s previous novels as they are just brilliant.
