This title will be released on August 24, 2017.

We never forget the one who got away.

Eighteen years ago Nell fell in love in the mountains of Crete and life changed for ever. Nell’s daughter, Demi, has never met her dad. Nell never saw him again.

When she gets the chance to return to the hilltop town of Vounoplagia – where everything began – Nell can’t resist the urge to go back and find him.

Working on a honey farm perched high up in the hills, there’s plenty to keep her busy. And she will quickly realise the town harbours just as many secrets as she does.

But if Nell’s favourite romantic films are right, there’s a happy ending in store for each of us. All she has to do is seek out the magic of the mountains…

My Thoughts:

I am a big fan of Jo Thomas and her books. I couldn’t wait to delve in to one of her wonderful stories again. As with it being so hot in the UK at the moment, I kind of felt as though I was in Crete experiencing some of the temperatures that Nell was experiencing in the book. There are some wonderful characters in the story especially the family that Nell goes to stay with. I enjoyed reading about the bees and how a factory to make honey is put together, I am not a big fan of honey but still enjoyed the book nether the less.

I was given this book for an honest review.

The Piano Man Project By Kat French

The Piano Man Project By Kat French


A delightfully romantic, heartwarming read for everyone who’s ever looked for The One and found someone better.

You: kind, piano-playing sex god
Me: hopelessly romantic charity shop manager

Honeysuckle Jones has a problem, and her best friends Nell and Tash are on a mission to help her solve it. She needs a man – a caring, intelligent, funny man. But most importantly, a man who’s good with his hands…

Luckily Honey’s new neighbour – moody, antisocial ex-chef Hal – fails on almost every count. Even though the chemistry between them is electric, he’s obviously wrong for her in every way.

But when Honey discovers the devastating reason for his moods she decides to give him another chance. And discovers that the best songs aren’t always in tune…

My Thoughts:

I was given this book for an honest review, and I really liked it, this is a feel – good, hilarious romantic comedy that you just wont want to put down. This is my first and will definitely not be my last read of Kat French’s. I thought all the characters were brilliant. I thought Honey was such a down to earth woman, who would do anything for anyone she reminded me of myself.  There is everything you could possibly want from a book, a great storyline, a lot of laughs, some naughty parts but also some emotion. From reading this book I know what is on the inside that counts not the outside. Superbly written, would recommend for a holiday read.

I just want to say a BIG Thank you to the team at Avon, who to promote this book sent me the letter Hal sent to Honey to make a spaghetti bolognese. They also sent me all the ingredients so I could make it myself. Here are a few of the pictures I took:DSCF3213



I thought this was a brilliant way to promote the book, but also a way that I will always remember. Brilliant stuff. I have yet to make the spaghetti bolognese but when I do I will be posting the pictures up.
