Live A Little By Madeleine Reiss

Live A Little By Madeleine Reiss

Two Sisters. One road trip. What could possibly go wrong?

Lottie has always followed the rules, her life is comfortable and she is – finally, finally – marrying her long-term, sensible, boyfriend Dean.

Tina is carefree, wild and, maybe, just a little bit careless. She doesn’t understand Lottie’s obsession with settling down with ‘dull Dean’. There’s so much to explore in the world.

The two sisters have drifted apart since the death of their older sister. Without her, Lottie and Tina realise how little they know each other. Desperate to remedy this, Tina convinces Lottie to set out on a road trip across the US, just the two of them.

But Tina has one more surprise in mind to shake up Lottie’s life – she must say yes to everything Tina suggests, no matter what . . .

My Thoughts:

This is the story of two sisters called Lottie and Tina, we hear about their own personal stories which I am sure some women can relate to. I didn’t feel as though I connected with either sister as I felt as though they were both a little bit selfish in their own ways. I liked the idea of the story how they go on a road trip and get up to all sorts of things. Part of the story is quite emotional and that is when I really felt for the sisters.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

This title will be released on May 4, 2017.

Milly loves her sisters more than anything – they are her best friends. But this holiday is different. The loss of their dad has left a gaping hole in their lives that none of them know how to fill. Heartbreak is a hard thing to fix …

Still, there is plenty to keep the girls busy in Rome. A family wedding. Food, wine, parties and sun. And of course Luke …. Luke is hot, there is no way around that. And Milly will always have a crush on him. But this summer is about family, being together, and learning to live without Dad. It isn’t about Luke at all … is it?

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advanced reading copy of this book. When I looked at the cover I immediately thought of the summer, this book is mainly set in Italy and reading it I could feel the warm Italian sun on my face. I managed to read this book in a day, it is a short book and I really wanted to find out what happens. The story is a bit of a sad one but you will also find romance, lots of food and family.

Summer with my Sister By lucy Diamond

Summer with my Sister By lucy Diamond

Polly has always been the high-flier of the family, with the glamorous city lifestyle to match.
Clare is a single mum with two children, struggling to make ends meet in a ramshackle cottage. The two sisters are poles apart and barely on speaking terms.
But then Polly’s fortunes change unexpectedly and her world comes crashing down. Left penniless and with nowhere else to go, she’s forced back to the village where she and Clare grew up, and the sisters find themselves living together for the first time in years. With an old flame reappearing for Polly, a blossoming new career for Clare and a long-buried family secret in the mix, sparks are sure to fly. Unless the two women have more in common than they first thought?

My Thoughts:

You can’t go wrong with a book that has been written by Lucy Diamond, her books are just utterly fantastic. The cover looks so inviting and gorgeous it just made me want to dive straight in. I really liked the plot for this story as always you feel like you can warm to the characters as they all have real life problems. I loved Polly and Clare’s mum and dad they reminded me of mine which was nice. I loved the idea of Clare setting up her own business I felt really nervous for her but she came up trumps in the end. Such a lovely story with a lovely outcome.

Discovering the truth could destroy you….

Willow’s memories of her parents are sun-drenched and full of smiles, love and laughter. But a mysterious invitation exposes a secret that’s been buried since a tragic accident years ago.

Because no one has been telling the truth for a very long time…

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of this book which is Tracy’s second book. The story itself is a heartbreaking but beautifully uplifting one, there are many twists and turns, and I honestly didn’t expect what we find out in the story. It made me think about what I would do for someone I loved and learn how a secret can affect not just one but many lives. Really capturing read, an author I am sure to look out for in the future.
