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.

The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even By Anna Bell

The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even By Anna Bell

When Lexi’s sport-mad boyfriend Will skips her friend’s wedding to watch football – after pretending to have food poisoning – it might just be the final whistle for their relationship.

But fed up of just getting mad, Lexi decides to even the score. And, when a couple of lost tickets and an ‘accidentally’ broken television lead to them spending extra time together, she’s delighted to realise that revenge might be the best thing that’s happened to their relationship.

And if her clever acts of sabotage prove to be a popular subject for her blog, what harm can that do? It’s not as if he’ll ever find out . . .

My Thoughts:

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. I can’t believe I have never heard or read any of Anna Bell’s books before. This story was brilliant and very unique which I liked. Lexi’s boyfriend is sports mad and when he fakes being ill to get out of going to her best friends wedding and goes to a football match instead Lexi wants revenge and oh boy does she get it. But with all this going on she also decides to blog about it. Big mistake! Some of the things she does to get revenge are hilarious. A brilliant story and one author I will definitely be reading more of.

The Beauty of the End By Debbie Howells

The Beauty of the End By Debbie Howells

the beauty of the end

I was fourteen when I fell in love with a goddess . . .

A love he’d never forget

Ex-lawyer Noah has never forgotten his first love. When, years later, he hears that she’s suspected of murder, he knows with certainty that she’s innocent. With April on life-support and the evidence pointing towards her guilt, he’s compelled to help her. But he’s also unprepared as he’s forced to confront what happened between them all those years ago.

A secret she would never reveal

April Moon had loved Noah. She never wanted to hurt him. But there was something – and someone – dark in her life which made happiness together impossible.

A family she could never forgive

Ella is a troubled teenager with her own secrets to tell. But no one will listen. What Ella knows holds the key to finding the killer. But as Noah, April and Ella’s stories converge, shocking revelations come to the surface. The truth is obvious. Or so everyone believes . .

My Thoughts:

I have read Debbie Howells first book ‘The Bones of You’ and really enjoyed it so I was really looking forward to her second book. The story grabbed me from  the start and the whole way through the book I felt gripped, I managed to read it within a day and a half. I didn’t find it as fast paced as Debbie’s first book but I think it was very well plotted and had some really good descriptions. I couldn’t of guessed what was going to happen which is a must for me and there are twists and turns that will leave you saying oh my god!

Time to Say Goodbye By S. D Robertson

Time to Say Goodbye By S. D Robertson

time to say goodbye

HOW DO YOU LEAVE THE PERSON YOU LOVE THE MOST?

Will Curtis’s six-year-old daughter, Ella, knows her father will never leave her. After all, he promised her so when her mother died. And he’s going to do everything he can to keep his word.

What Will doesn’t know is that the promise he made to his little girl might be harder to keep than he imagined. When he’s faced with an impossible decision, Will finds that the most obvious choice might not be the right one.

But the future is full of unexpected surprises. And father and daughter are about to embark on an unforgettable journey together . . .

My Thoughts:

This book intrigued me as I don’t normally read books with unrealistic plots and even though I am glad I have read it, it wasn’t really for me. It is a very emotional story that I found really hard to read. I found some conversations between Ella and her father Will a bit too complex for her age too. The characters were all good but the story just wasn’t my cup of tea.

After You By Jojo Moyes

After You By Jojo Moyes


Lou Clark has lots of questions.
Like how it is she’s ended up working in an airport bar, spending every shift watching other people jet off to new places.
Or why the flat she’s owned for a year still doesn’t feel like home.
Whether her close-knit family can forgive her for what she did eighteen months ago.
And will she ever get over the love of her life.
What Lou does know for certain is that something has to change.

Then, one night, it does.
But does the stranger on her doorstep hold the answers Lou is searching for – or just more questions?
Close the door and life continues: simple, ordered, safe.
Open it and she risks everything.
But Lou once made a promise to live. And if she’s going to keep it, she has to invite them in . .

My Thoughts:

I had to get my hands on this book as I couldn’t get enough of Me Before You, this is the sequel to that one. I couldn’t wait to find out what had happened with Lou and this book certainly did not disappoint. Some times you read sequels and they just do not live up to what you were expecting or other times you are left feeling that the ending was a bit rubbish but not this book it had me hooked till the very last page. This book made me laugh out loud, it made me shed a few tears, the characters I loved and fell in love with especially Lou as I could see myself in her always helping people out and putting others before herself. Such a brilliant read and I am glad I can finally say I have read it and loved it.

“Midlife crisis? WHAT midlife crisis?!”

Charlotte Bristow is worried about her husband Will. Their fourteen years of marriage have been rather lovely so far, but things have been a bit odd lately.

With their stunning 16-year-old daughter Rosie newly signed to a top modelling agency and Will recently out of a job, Charlotte can’t help but notice that things are changing in their household.

As Will dusts down his old leather trousers and starts partying with their new, fun neighbours, Charlotte begins to wonder what on earth is going on.

So when Fraser, Charlotte’s ex – and father of Rosie – suddenly arrives back on the scene, Charlotte starts to wonder what might have been…

My Thoughts:

I have only read one of Fiona’s books before but I am really looking forward to reading more of her books. This was an enjoyable read, and I was able to finish it within three days. There are some quite funny comical moments which I liked, and the way that family situations can get out of hand. I would of liked to find out a bit more about what happened with Rosie’s biological father Fraser as I feel there wasn’t much said about him near the end. Maybe there will be another book I am not sure but still an enjoyable read nether the less.

Make My Wish Come True By Fiona Harper

The Perfect Christmas swap?

All Juliet, frazzled single mum and Yuletide domestic goddess, wants for Christmas is a joyful family celebration (even if she does have to wrestle with last-minute angel costume making and mad shopping centre dashes).

All her single sister Gemma, an assistant director, wants is a Christmas in the sizzling Caribbean sun, away from diva actors and Hollywood tantrums.

Until a sisterly squabble prompts new plans: a Christmas swap.

Gemma will spend a cosy,snowy Christmas with her nieces and nephews – not to mention Juliet’s gorgeous neighbour Will – whilst Juliet takes Gemma’s tropical holiday and unplanned adventures.

It’s not the Christmas they expected, but it could be about to make all their wishes come true…..

My Thoughts:

Fiona Harper is such a brilliant author, she writes with such enthusiasm that I can never get enough of her books. This book is about two sisters who decided to swap holidays for Christmas, I know it isn’t Christmas just yet but decided to read it anyway and I am glad I did. The story is an enjoyable one that focuses on families, Fiona has a way of writing where you think about the people who are close to you and what matters the most.The cover of this book drew me towards it as it is really pretty.A heart warming story that you will love even if it isn’t Christmas.
