The Woman who Fell in Love for a week By Fiona Walker

The Woman who Fell in Love for a week By Fiona Walker

This title will be released on June 4, 2015.

Dive into a summer of surprises . . .

Jenny loves to house-sit: looking after a stranger’s perfect home and pretending to be someone else – just for a bit. Her latest booking is a beautiful rambling country house owned by the glamorous Lewis family. Freed of teaching duties for the summer, Jenny plans to do nothing more challenging than walk the family’s badly behaved dog and laze by the pool.

Her idyll is disrupted by skeletons in the Lewis closet. Stumbling across hidden messages and passionate secrets, Jenny finds herself exposing far more than just home truths. She uncovers a seductive second chance: to open herself up to love again and to finally live life on her own terms.

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of this book and it definitely is another brilliantly written story by Fiona, it is so much more than your usual chick lit. I found the plot very entertaining and liked that there were twists and turns in the story. I liked Jenny and could see myself in her sometimes, I loved her job looking after peoples homes but I don’t think I could do it, it did seem quite stressful at many times. I think the star of the show was Gunther the dog, yes I know he was quite naughty but he seemed very loveable. I found the story light hearted but it also very thought provoking. I think is shows how heartbreak can influence our lives After reading a few of Fiona’s books I think this is my favourite so far. It was a funny and touching book and I look forward to the next book.

I heart Christmas By Lindsey Kelk

I heart Christmas By Lindsey Kelk

Angela’s planning her very own fairytale of New York…

• Enormous Christmas tree
• Eggnog
• Eccentric British traditions
• Gorgeous man

But Santa’s throwing her a few curveballs – new job (as if it’s not mental enough already), new baby-craze from her best friend Jenny, and Alex determined they should grow up and settle down. Once friends start turning up uninvited on her doorstep (and leading her astray), can Angela really have a merry little Christmas? So much for happy holidays – something’s got to give…

My Thoughts:

I had never read any of Lindsey Kelk’s books before. I have to say I really enjoyed this book, I managed to read it in two days. It is a nice easy read that deals with real people or should I say women’s problems. Will definitely be looking into reading the other books in this series. Even though it is after Christmas I still found this book enjoyable. Maybe it was a predictable ending but I loved the storyline and I loved the fact I could really relate to Angela. Great characters in a heart warming story.
