Then. Now. Always By Isabelle Broom

Hannah Hodges can’t believe her luck when she’s offered a trip to sunny Spain with her best friend and dreamy boss . . . but what’s the catch?

‘Fresh, fun and full of sexual tension… a perfect spring read’ Heat

Twenty-eight year old Hannah is ready for an adventure. She and her colleagues are in Spain for a month to film a documentary, and it’s a dream come true. Not least because Hannah will get to spend long summer days with Theo, her boss (and gorgeous crush). It couldn’t be a more perfect setting to fall in love…

If only Tom (Hannah’s best friend and cameramen) and Claudette (the presenter) would stop getting in the way…

Then things become even more complicated when Nancy, Hannah’s half-sister arrives. What on earth is she doing here?

For just once in her life, can’t Hannah have one perfect summer, free of any drama?

My Thoughts:

I won this book in a competition and couldn’t wait to start reading it. Isabelle is a new author to me and I really can’t work out why I have never read any of her books before as this one was fantastic. I will definitely be looking out for her other books to read. The cover looks really stunning and I think it is the perfect beach read. It sounded like such a beautiful place that it almost makes me want to pack up my bags and go. A perfect read to escape to.

The Woman at Number 24 By Juliet Ashton

The Woman at Number 24 By Juliet Ashton

juliet ashton

When your marriage falls apart, the last place you’d want your husband to move to is downstairs. Unfortunately for Sarah, up in the eaves at number 24, her ex-husband now lives one floor beneath her with his new wife. Their happiness floats up through the floorboards, taunting her.

A child psychologist, Sarah has picked up great sadness from the little girl, Una, who lives with her careworn mother three floors below, but is Sarah emotionally equipped to reach out?

The Spring brings a new couple to the house. Jane and Tom‘s zest for life revives the flagging spirits, and Sarah can’t deny the instant attraction to handsome Tom. Having seen at first hand what infidelity does to people, she’ll never act on it … but the air fizzes with potential.

The sunshine doesn’t reach every corner of number 24, however. Elderly Mavis, tucked away in the basement, has kept the world at bay for decades. She’s about to find out that she can’t hide forever.

My Thoughts:

I won this book in a competition, I was glad I won as this book looked really good even though I had not heard of the author before. I like the fact it is set in a house where multiple residents live. I loved getting to know each and everyone of the residents and hearing about their lives. I loved the way how Sarah is with little Una and how she helps her uncover her voice. Brilliantly told, was sad to come to the end.

The Beachside Flower Stall By Karen Clarke

The Beachside Flower Stall By Karen Clarke

karen clarke 2

Carrie Dashwood fled Dorset ten years ago when her best friend Megan stole her love, local heart-throb Tom. Now she’s back to help run her aunt Ruby’s flower stall in idyllic Shipley.

Trying to persuade herself that her feelings for Tom are in the past, Carrie plans to avoid him and Megan completely. But it’s not to be, because Ruby’s Blooms are arranging the flowers for Megan and Tom’s wedding.

Soon Carrie’s crawling under the stall to hide and accidentally inventing an imaginary boyfriend… But with the stall’s finances in jeopardy and Ruby needing her niece more than ever, Carrie has to keep her emotions in check.

With bouquets to arrange, family secrets to uncover, and Tom unavoidably a part of her life again, can Carrie keep her cool, save the stall, and find her very own happy ever after?

My Thoughts:

I was happy to receive an advanced reading copy of this book as I really had enjoyed Karen’s previous novel The Beachside Sweet shop. The cover looks so pretty and inviting and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in. I loved the story and I liked it that it kept on referring back to the sweet shop as the flower stall is in the same town square as the sweet shop. I love the fact that it is a romantic comedy as you certainly get the romance and there is quite a few laughs to be had reading this book. I particularly found myself warming to Carrie as she reminded me a bit of myself in certain ways. I cannot wait for the next book, I am sure it is going to be as good as this one.

Shall we dance?

After a humiliating divorce and watching her former rock star husband leave her for a model live on reality TV, Pippa is determined to disappear. So she returns to the small Kent village where she grew up to make a fresh start.

Little did she know that would mean saving her beloved childhood dance school or falling for her old school crush Tom too!

My Thoughts:

I received a copy of this book for an honest review. I love Fiona’s books there is something so uplifting about them. I love the fact that between dancing there is a lovely little romance going on. You don’t have to love dance to love this book, I really enjoyed it and learnt some things about dance too.All the characters are good and I liked the sound of Miss Mimi. I got swept away with the whole story and I am looking forward to Fiona’s next book with great anticipation.
