Visions of the Heart By Julia Sutton

The first year at Chattlesbury University is coming to an end. Five students have become friends, and their lives are progressing both academically and personally.

Forced to mature too soon, can Will’s life ever be the same again?
Crippled by personal loss, can Evelyn overcome her grief?
Secrets and revelations threaten to destroy the world that Sophie knows.
Can Juliette’s growing love for one man overcome opposition from those around them?
Ann is striving for the one thing that will fulfill her personally.

Life and dreams collide in Visions of the Heart, as five characters encounter new challenges. It is an uplifting story of optimism, love, loss and the tenacity of human spirit.

My Thoughts:

This is book 2 in the the School of Dreams series and I would recommend reading the first book so you can get to know all the characters. I found all the characters realistic and like real people. There is romance and intrigue, I wanted to know what would happen with the characters, luckily there is going to be a book 3 which I am really looking forward too.

I won this book in a competition.

Always With Love By Giovanna Fletcher

Always With Love By Giovanna Fletcher

always with love

Sophie’s got used to being the girlfriend of Billy Buskin, the biggest movie star in the world. Sort of.

But when she and Billy take a trip to visit his family in Los Angeles, she quickly discovers she’s totally unprepared for the chaos of Hollywood, the paparazzi and Billy’s controlling mother.

And when Billy extends his stay in LA, leaving Sophie to fly home to Rosefont Hill alone, it seems there’s more than just miles between them.

Now Sophie must decide if they can overcome their differences for good. Because not every love story lasts the distance . .

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, just as much as I loved Billy and Me which is the book before this. This book can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading it as you get a background picture of all of the characters. I couldn’t wait to start this book and I found myself totally immersed in the story. This is a wonderfully romantic story and I hope this is not the last we hear of Sophie and Billy. I love Giovanna’s descriptions it really brings the book to life.

At Therapy’s End By Susie Flashmann Jarvis

At Therapy’s End By Susie Flashmann Jarvis

As Alfie’s first birthday draws near, his mother, Sophie, and her family are forced to confront a past they have been trying to shut away for years. Revisiting painful memories, grief threatens to destroy relationships as Sophie and her daughter, Katie, wrestle with guilt, and Simon, their loving husband and father, can only look on in despair.

Grief’s shadow threatens to overwhelm them all, and Sophie finds herself face to face with her abusive childhood. Will they be able to find a way through their heartache to a place of healing and peace? What will they find at therapy’s end?

My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get a copy from Susie herself and I really appreciate it. Wow!! where do I begin, this is such a heartbreaking and honest book that deals with real life problems. Even though I am yet to be a mother I could understand how heart breaking it must be to have lost a child. Susie has written this book so well with such emotion that you will have a tear in your eye. It is unfortunately something some of us have been through or know someone who has been through it. It has made me open my eyes and think about life in general. This is a story that will definitely stay with me. I love the way how the book was set out with mum, dad and daughter speaking about what had happened and how they were coming to terms with it. There are a few twists along the way that I didn’t expect. This book certainly shows how one tragedy can unite a family. Brilliantly written.

Ninety Steps to Summerhill By Emily Harvale

Ninety Steps to Summerhill By Emily Harvale

 

Sophie Summerhill believes in Fate and she’s in Goldebury Bay for only one reason: to find the fabled, long-lost, Summerhill treasure. When she finds it, she’s going to sell it and head for a life of luxury in the Caribbean. But first, she has to solve the mystery of an ancient feud between local families: the Beaumonts, the Suttons and the Pollards and to do that, she will need some help.

What she doesn’t need is good-looking journalist, Timothy Richards asking questions. Or a man who’s just lost everything – the darkly handsome, Thaddeus Beaumont, taking on the role of  ‘knight in shining armour’. In fact, Sophie must try to avoid Thaddeus. He might find out what she’s trying to keep hidden from everyone in Goldebury Bay, and particularly from him.

My Thoughts:

I just want to say a big thank you to Emily who sent me this book and signed it for me too. I love the cover and I thought the blurb on the back done like a postcard is such a fantastic idea. I thought it looked brilliant. This is book two in the Goldebury Bay Series and I will be reading the first book very soon. You will love this book if your a fan of the romantic novels, Emily doesn’t leave anything out, this book has humour, friendship, falling in love with lots of fun. I was lost in this book as I really wanted to find out if Sophie would find the treasure in the end. I loved the story, they are some very amusing parts in it.  And I liked all the characters, I think Sophie is very lucky to a hot guy in Thaddeus in her life. I look forward to reading the first book in this series and I certainly look forward to the next book. This is a book you will not want to put down.

Sophie’s Turn (Part 1 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy) By Nicky Wells

Sophie’s Turn (Part 1 in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy) By Nicky Wells

 

Slapper? Slut? Adulteress? Sophie Penhalligan’s life and moral universe is turned upside down when rock star Dan proposes to her in full knowledge that she is already engaged. She has always loved Dan, in a remote-crush kind of way. She thinks she loves her fiancé, Tim. What is she to do?

It’s all happening because her past has come to tempt her. Nine years ago, she met her teenage idol and rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, up close and personal. Well, almost!

Now Dan has crash-landed back in her life just as Sophie is happily embroiled in a relationship with Tim, her boyfriend of two years. Until recently, she was confident Tim would eventually propose. But while his persistent inaction is beginning to cast a cloud over their relationship, Dan’s sudden reappearance poses a whole new dilemma.

Having accompanied Dan’s band to Paris, Sophie suddenly finds herself engaged to Dan while her erstwhile fiancé Tim is… well, doing whatever it is Tim does back in London. Torn between the dream-come-true and the sensible-thing-to-do, Sophie concludes her inadvertent journey of self-discovery with an ending that surprises herself, and everyone around her.

Sophie’s Turn is a glamorous contemporary fairy tale that will make chick-lit and romance lovers laugh, cry and rock along every step of the way.

My Thoughts:

I was given this book for an honest review, and I can honestly say I absolutely loved this book. Reading this book made me feel like I really understood the characters and really felt what they were going through. I think I could relate to Sophie as she is just a normal young girl who is still trying to find herself even when everything else is settling down. She realises that she has lost part of herself whilst trying to decide what she wants, which I think some women may relate to. I thoroughly enjoyed this read.
