Split Decision By Carmen Capuano

Split Decision By Carmen Capuano


How was Natalie to know that the decision she was about to make between two potential dates, would forever be a pivotal point in her life? That it would mark the time where childhood innocence ended?

How could she even imagine that the wrong decision would send her life spiralling into the stuff of nightmares from where she might not come out alive?

Life takes a cruel twist of fate when Natalie, a completely average [almost] 16 year old, is forced to make a split-second decision… a decision that will change her future and forever alter her perception of trust, love and the realities of life.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I have read by Carmen and this one is about Natalie and how she has to make a split decision that could be an important point in her life. Written well and I wanted to see if Natalie made the right or wrong decision. The conversations were true to form.

I was given an advanced reading copy of this book for an honest review.

The Swimming Pool By Louise Candlish

The Swimming Pool By Louise Candlish

louise candlish

This title will be released on May 5, 2016.

In the heady swelter of a London summer, the Elm Hill lido opens.

For teacher Natalie Steele, the school holiday typically means weeks of carefully planned activities with her husband Ed and their daughter Molly. But not this year.

Despite Molly’s extreme phobia of the water, Natalie is drawn to the lido and its dazzling social scene, led by the glamorous Lara Channing. Soon Natalie is spending long, intoxicating days with Lara at the pool – and intimate evenings at her home. Natalie’s real life begins to feel very far away.

But is the new friendship everything it seems? Why is Natalie haunted by memories from another summer years ago? And, without realising, has she been swept dangerously out of her depth?

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of this book from lovereading so want to say thank you for them for sending me a copy. I have always loved Louise Candlish books, this one didn’t disappoint either. The first book I got to review was by Louise Candlish and I have not looked back since. Louise has a brilliant way that just draws you into her characters worlds, her writing is exceptional. There are twists and turns that will leave you thinking oh my god did that just happen, you think you may know what is going to happen but trust me you don’t. An outstanding book you will want to get your hands on.

The Christmas Spirit By Susan Buchanan

The Christmas Spirit By Susan Buchanan

Christmas is coming, but not everyone is looking forward to it.

Rebecca has just been dumped and the prospect of spending the holiday period with her parents is less than appealing.
Eighty- two year old Stanley lost his beloved wife, Edie, to cancer. How will he cope with his first Christmas without her?
Jacob’s university degree hasn’t helped him get a job, and it looks like he’ll still be signing on come New Year.
Workaholic Meredith would rather spend December 25th at home alone with a ready meal and a DVD box set. Can anything make her embrace the spirit of the season?
The enigmatic Natalie Hope takes over the reins at the Sugar and Spice bakery and café in an attempt to spread some festive cheer and restore Christmas spirit, but will she succeed?

My Thoughts:

With the run up to Christmas not that far away, this book is an absolute delight. This story is centred around the Sugar and Spice Bakery and a lady called Natalie that makes the most amazing cakes from around the world. It is in the bakery that all the characters congregate and interact with one another, which results in positive ways for all involved. This was a big hit for me as it involved Christmas, Cake and a bakery. I found the story left me feeling all warm inside.
