Silent Water By Jan Ruth ( Book 3)

Silent Water By Jan Ruth ( Book 3)

silent water.jpg

The tragedy and comedy that is Jack’s life; a dangerous web of lies concludes a bitter-sweet end.
Jack Redman, estate agent to the Cheshire set and someone who’s broken all the rules. An unlikely hero or a misguided fool?

In this sequel to Dark Water, Jack and Anna must face the consequences of their actions. As the police close in and Patsy’s manipulative ways hamper the investigations, will Jack escape unscathed?

With her career in tatters and an uncertain future, Anna has serious decisions to make. Her silence could mean freedom for Jack, but an emotional prison for herself. Is remaining silent the ultimate test of faith, or is it end of the line for Jack and Anna?

My Thoughts:

I don’t think I have ever loved a series as much as I have loved this one. I really feel as though I know all the characters. This is the third book in the series and I strongly recommend reading the first two which are Wild Water and Dark Water. The scenery and settings that Jan describes are just beautiful you can almost imagine you are there. We come back to Jack’s story and whether Anna and himself are going to reveal their secret. The second book left us on a cliff hanger and now events have caught up with Jack and Anna. What is going to happen and how? I was blown away by how good this series was and I am really starting to miss reading about Jack’s story.

dark water

The tragedy and comedy that is Jack’s life; is there a future for him and Anna, or is the past too destructive?
Jack Redman, estate agent to the Cheshire set and skilled juggler of complex relationships. Someone to break all the rules, or an unlikely hero?
In this sequel to Wild Water Jack and Anna return to discover that history repeats itself. Anna’s long-awaited success as a serious artist is poised to happen, but her joy, along with her relationship with Jack, is threatened by old scores.

Simon Banks is a depressed and unstable man with a plan. He wants to wipe out his past by buying a brighter future, but Jack Redman stands in his way.
Will Jack ever escape the legacy of lies and deceit left by his ex-wife? Can Jack and Anna hold it all together, or will tragic repercussions from Jack’s past blow them apart forever?

My Thoughts:

You have to read the first book which is called Wild Water to understand and know the characters, I was so glad to read the next part of Jack’s story. I got a sense right from the start that things weren’t looking very good for Jack and his family, he is torn between Anna and his children but which will he choose. I still found Patsy horrible some of the things she does is awful. I was so intrigued by what would happen I read this book in a day. It was brilliant.

Wild Water By Jan Ruth

Wild Water By Jan Ruth

wild water

The tragedy and comedy that is Jack’s life; secrets, lies and family ties. Jack Redman, estate agent to the Cheshire set. An unlikely hero, or someone to break all the rules? Wild water is the story of forty-something estate agent, Jack, who is stressed out not only by work, bills and the approach of Christmas but by the feeling that he and his wife, Patsy are growing apart.

His misgivings prove founded when he discovers Patsy is having an affair, and is pregnant. At the same time as his marriage begins to collapse around him, he becomes reacquainted with his childhood sweetheart, Anna, whom he left for Patsy twenty-five years before. His feelings towards Anna reawaken, but will life and family conflicts conspire to keep them apart again?

My Thoughts:

This is the first book in a three part series of Jan Ruth’s books. After reading a previous novel of Jan’s I was very happy to receive these three books. I love how vibrant the heather is on the front of this cover, it makes you want to snuggle up with a hot chocolate which is exactly what I did. This is a contemporary romance but so much more, I  instantly fell in love with Jack and really hoped that his horrible wife Patsy would see the pain she had inflicted on their poor children. It is a heart wrenching story but I really did feel emotional for Jack and what happens.

Sunshine on a Rainy Day By Bryony Fraser

Sunshine on a Rainy Day By Bryony Fraser

sunshine-on-a-rainy-day

It’s Zoe and Jack’s first wedding anniversary party. They’ve got an announcement! They’re getting divorced…

Marriage isn’t for everyone – something that Zoe and Jack discovered only after they’d walked down the aisle. Bad timing, huh? So now they’re stuck together in their once harmonious marital home, neither one of them willing to move out of their lovely house.

With Zoe’s three sisters always wanting a say, and Jack’s best friend trying his best to fix things between them, misunderstandings arise. Tempers flare. ‘Accidents’ happen…

Zoe and Jack are going to be lucky if they’re still alive when the twelve months are up. But maybe things aren’t quite as final as they seem?

My Thoughts:

I was given an advanced copy of this book but I waited till recently to read it as I wanted to take a funny book on holiday with me. I really didn’t enjoy this one, I read till halfway and gave up. I found Zoe quite irritating and very immature. I was hoping something would happen but unfortunately it did not. Even though I hate giving up on a book I just knew that would have to be the case in this book. This is my opinion of the book but other people may love it.

Behind Closed Doors By B A Paris

Behind Closed Doors By B A Paris

behind closed doors

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.
You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.
Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work.

How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

My Thoughts:

Wow what a book. This is the gripping debut thriller from B A Paris that everyone is talking about. I wanted to see for myself what all the fuss was about and I am glad I did. I didn’t want to leave this book alone let alone put it down. I read in a couple of days, it was brilliant. I love the way each chapter is set in the past and present. I found it eerily good and fascinating. I really didn’t know what was going to happen. I can’t believe it is the author’s first book as it was brilliant. I look forward to more of the author’s books. You never know what happens behind closed doors.

The Parent Trap (Mishaps in Millrise Book 3) By Tilly Tennant

The Parent Trap (Mishaps in Millrise Book 3) By Tilly Tennant

My Thoughts:

Isn’t the cover of this book absolutely gorgeous, but then all of Tilly Tennant’s covers are gorgeous. Go on, have a look you know you want to. So this is the third book in the mishaps in Millrise series and it doesn’t disappoint so we meet back up with Phoebe and Jack and how their relationship is going. Of course, there is going to be lovers tiffs, arguments and disasters but that’s what we love reading about. I can’t wait for the conclusion of this series, it will be sad that it will be all over but good as I can’t wait to find out what happens. Such an enjoyable read.

Just Like Rebecca ( Mishaps in Millrise Book 2) By Tilly Tennant

Just Like Rebecca ( Mishaps in Millrise Book 2) By Tilly Tennant


Phoebe’s new role at work is keeping her busier than ever. Just as she’s finding her feet, however, new boss, Dixon, lands a bombshell: Hendry’s toy store is in dire financial straits and it’s up to him and Phoebe to save it. This isn’t exactly what she signed up for and she’s going to need all the help she can get. So it’s a pity that the only help she has comes in the form of Midnight, her purple-haired colleague who wouldn’t know an employee rule-book if it slapped her in the face…

At home, Jack’s brother, Archie, and their mum, Carol, seem determined to make Phoebe’s life hell, however hard she tries. And now Jack seems to have a new rival too: Adam Hendry, slick heir to the Hendry’s empire, who is making it very clear he’d like to involve Phoebe in a hostile takeover. Just how far will he go to get what he wants?

My Thoughts:

I would just like to say that I find the cover absolutely beautiful and charming, it made me want to jump straight in. This is the second book in the series which you can read as a standalone but if you want to find out about the characters I would suggest reading the first book called Little acts of Love. There are two characters called Jack and Phoebe and their relationship is being tested, there are alot of ups and downs as every new couple will understand. Phoebe finds herself living under Jack’s former wife’s shadow. This is a book I am sure couples can relate to but there is some humour and there is a surprise at the end that I wasn’t expecting.

Night Owls By Jenn Bennett

Night Owls By Jenn Bennett

This title will be released on August 13, 2015.

 

Meeting Jack on the Owl – San Francisco’s night bus – turns Beatrix’s world upside down. Jack is charming, wildly attractive …and possibly one of San Francisco’s most notorious graffiti artists.

On midnight rides and city rooftops, Beatrix begins to see who this enigmatic boy really is. But Jack is hiding much more – and can she uncover the truth that leaves him so wounded?

My Thoughts:

I would like to say a thank you to lovereading who kindly sent me an advanced copy of this book. The story is about two young adults called Beatrix’s and Jack, who are both artists that live in San Francisco. Beatrix’s is into drawing pictures of bodies, so that side really interested me as I have studied forensic science. The story is all about first love, reading your dreams which I think many young adults will be able to relate to. I think the message it wants to put out to the reader is that you need to find yourself and who you are and want to be in the future, I found this a really engrossing read and it I read it in one sitting as it is only 294 pages long.

Little Acts of Love (Mishaps in Millrise Book 1) By Tilly Tennant

Little Acts of Love (Mishaps in Millrise Book 1) By Tilly Tennant


If you’re new to the town of Millrise, then come and meet the residents. But if you fell in love with Phoebe and Jack last Christmas in Mishaps and Mistletoe, then you’ve just been invited to the best reunion ever…

Almost five months have passed since Phoebe and Jack first met in the grotto of a drunken Santa at Hendry’s toy store in Millrise. Since then, Jack and his adorable daughter, Maria, have turned Phoebe’s life around. As she and Jack get closer, Phoebe decides it’s time to put her stagnating career back on track too, which means going for a big promotion at work.

But nothing is ever simple in the strange little world of Hendry’s, and Phoebe is soon wishing she’d stayed on the tills. At home, things aren’t much better as the couple brace themselves to meet their respective in-laws. It’s clear from the start that making friends and influencing people has never been harder. And to make it worse, Phoebe must compete for the affection of Jack’s parents with the perfect partner and mother – who’s been dead for five years…

My Thoughts:

This story is all about Phoebe and how she is trying to earn herself a promotion at the Children’s toy store called Hendry’s. She hopes to get provide a better life with her boyfriend Jack and his daughter Maria. Phoebe has a best friend called Midnight and I love the way their friendship blossoms, Midnight has such a different attitude to Phoebe’s I think that is why they are such good friends and she brings the fun side out in Phoebe. They both work at Hendry’s and you can see why they would have fun. I really enjoyed this story and really look forward to reading the next one.

Before I Go By Colleen Oakley

Before I Go By Colleen Oakley

This title will be released on May 7, 2015.

“Her time is running out. How can Daisy ensure that Jack will live happily ever after? On the eve of what was supposed to be a triumphant ‘Cancerversary’ with her husband Jack to celebrate three years of good health, Daisy suffers a devastating blow: her doctor tells her that the cancer is back, but this time it’s unstoppable. Death is a frightening prospect – but not because she’s afraid for herself.

She’s terrified of what will happen to her brilliant but charmingly helpless husband when she’s no longer there to take care of him. It’s this fear that keeps her up at night, until she stumbles on the solution: she has to find him another wife. With a singular determination, Daisy searches for Jack’s perfect match.

But as the thought of her husband with another woman becomes all too real, Daisy is forced to decide what’s more important in the short amount of time she has left: her husband’s happiness – or her own?”

My Thoughts:

I want to say a big thank you to Lovereading for letting me review this book. It is always hard to read a book that has someone in it that has cancer, it is hard when you know someone that has been through it whether they are still here or not. To be honest speaking from personal experiences as I lost someone who was battling cancer. I wasn’t too sure if I would like this book or not I did  find some of it hard to read and I did have a little cry, remembering certain things. I like the way this story was written as I haven’t before read a story about the actual person’s way of coping with the disease. This is a story that really makes you appreciate life and really makes you think. I think this book will stay with me for life.
