Her Name Was Rose By Claire Allan

Her Name Was Rose By Claire Allan

rose

Her name was Rose. You watched her die. And her death has created a vacancy.

When Emily lets a stranger step out in front of her, she never imagines that split second will change her life. But after Emily watches a car plough into the young mother – killing her instantly – she finds herself unable to move on.

And then she makes a decision she can never take back.

Because Rose had everything Emily had ever dreamed of. A beautiful, loving family, a great job and a stunning home. And now Rose’s husband misses his wife, and their son needs a mother. Why couldn’t Emily fill that space?

But as Emily is about to discover, no one’s life is perfect … and not everything is as it seems.

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. I managed to read it within two days, I would of been quicker but I didn’t want it to end. It is a powerful thriller and it left me guessing till the very end. I love the fact that hidden details emerge through out the story as I feel we really get a good insight into the whole story. This is an author I would read again.

Drawing With Light By Julia Green

Drawing With Light By Julia Green

Kat and Emily have grown up without their mother for almost as long as they can remember. And now Dad is with Cassy and they all muddle along together well enough – even though they are living in a cramped caravan while their new house is being renovated. Then Cassy and Dad tell them that Cassy is pregnant, and everything seems to shift. Emily feels a new urge to find her own mother.

How could she have left them the way she did? Never writing to them? Not communicating with them? And as Emily begins her search, not knowing what she will find, she is at the same time embarking on a new relationship of her own, that of her romance with Seb . . .

My Thoughts:

This was a nice, quick, easy read. I loved Emily the main character in this story and how her story was told. I am a keen photographer so felt myself warming to her. I loved reading about the blossoming romance between her and Seb, he seemed a really sweet guy and it reminded me of my youth. Young love hey!! Such a beautiful read that I would recommend it to anyone who has not read any of Julia Green’s books.

The Billionaire’s Christmas By J. S. Scott

The Billionaire’s Christmas By J. S. Scott

Called an eccentric beast by the citizens of Amesport, Maine, handsome, sensual billionaire Grady Sinclair stays isolated in his mansion on a private peninsula. The arrangement suits Grady just fine—until an unassuming woman rings his doorbell, awaking his long dormant passion with her fearlessness. All he wants is to make the fiery blonde his forever. But will he have to become the monster everyone thinks he is to get his Christmas wish?

Emily Ashworth is desperate. The Youth Center has been robbed of all its money, and as the director, she has to find a way to give the town’s needy children the Christmas they deserve. With nowhere else to turn, she ventures to the mansion of a mysterious billionaire to ask for help. Warned to expect a beast, Emily is shocked to find Grady Sinclair a handsome and very sensual man. With steamy kisses under the mistletoe and seductive whispers while hanging the wreath, Emily finds there’s more to Grady than meets the eye. Is this misunderstood billionaire just a lonely soul who needs the gift of love for Christmas?

My Thoughts:

Having never read any of this author’s books before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was recommended this book first as I would meet all the characters then I would know who is who in the next book. This is a lovely romantic story that isn’t too long. The story is written well and the erotic parts are well detailed without being over the top. I look forward to reading the next one.

Dreaming Of Love By Melissa Foster

Dreaming Of Love By Melissa Foster

 

Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.


Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

My Thoughts:

I dare you to read a paragraph of this book and not be hooked. I love the way Melissa writes with such emotion and passion, This is a book with a fantastic story, very hot characters and steamy love scenes. Even though this book is part of a series I like the fact you can read it as a standalone but believe me once you have read one of Melissa’s books you will want to read all of the others. Look forward to the next book.

Nice Girls Don’t By Sue Barnard

Nice Girls Don’t By Sue Barnard

 

Who knows what secrets lie hidden in your family’s past? Southern England, 1982. At 25, single, and under threat of redundancy from her job in a local library, Emily feels as though her life is going nowhere – until the day when Carl comes into the library asking for books about tracing family history. Carl is baffled by a mystery about his late grandfather: why is the name by which Carl had always known him different from the name on his old passport? Fascinated as much by Carl himself as by the puzzle he wants to solve, Emily tries to help him find the answers. As their relationship develops, their quest for the truth takes them along a complicated paper-trail which leads, eventually, to the battlefields of the Great War. In the meantime, Emily discovers that her own family also has its fair share of secrets and lies. And old sins can still cast long shadows… Can Emily finally lay the ghosts of the past to rest and look forward to a brighter future?

My Thoughts:

This was a well written story which is so much more than a romance. It is set in 1982 England and it fits perfectly around the Remembrance Day celebrations. This is a story about love and a mystery entwined but it is so much more than a romance as there are links to World War One and some really heartfelt family tragedies that brings this book through so many twists and turns, but leaves it with a beautifully written ending. I didn’t want to put this book down and will be recommending it to my friends.
