MY REVIEW

Oh my what a wonderful read!

In this story Cleo is still nursing a broken heart 💔, from a year ago when her boyfriend Scott left her to live in Australia.  She has been working on herself and checking things off her bucket list.  She is slowly moving on, but not ready to date again.  Then after a sky diving experience with her bff Emma they decide to go to the pub to celebrate.  Low and behold she runs into none other than Scott.  All the feelings come rushing forward as he professes his apology asking for another chance.  But she stands strong and walks away.

As they continue to bump into each other, her resolve weakens.  Then they have a one night stand, only for her to wake up alone.  Devastated and feeling he has abandoned her again, she falls back into heartbreak again.  

When fate comes calling Cleo faints and is rushed to the hospital.  The prognosis is she is pregnant.  What will she do now?  When she breaks the news to Scott, he decides that he wants to be there for his child.  They agree to put their issues aide and work together to be good parents.  

Scott is determined to be there for his child.  even if it means he can’t be with Cleo romantically.  Will he and Cleo comes to terms with their relationship?  Or will all the obstacles pull them apart?

This is the first book by Lynsey James that I have read and I was so impressed.  I really loved this story.  It was a very emotional read.   The type of story that will touch your soul.  Ms. James took her time telling the story and developing the characters.  An amazing story.  A lovely tale of second chances and new beginnings. 

The characters in this book are amazing and really make this book come alive.  Each character has strength in spades.  Cleo really does have some issues she struggles with.  She is very determined to overcome it all to become the best mummy she can be.  Scott is a very sweet guy.  He loves Cleo desperately and he is afraid to show that side to Cleo, afraid it will scare her away.  He is also a very caring and determined man.  Cleo and Scott really work hard to overcome all the obstacles that are tossed at them.  Let me tell you they are some doozies.

This book will draw you in and captivate you.  A wonderful cozy Christmas read.  Perfect for sitting  by the fire curled up in the blanket with a hot chocolate.  It will make you laugh, cry, smile and fall in love.  I can definitely see this becoming a movie.  Maybe another Love Actually.  I love a good Christmas Romance!

Lynsey JamesAuthor bio: Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She’s an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she’s sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)

A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left my job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.

When Lynsey’s not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she’s daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they’re meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…

MY REVIEW

First off I want to say how much I loved this book cover.  It is so eye-catching and adorable.  Second this is the first book of Kellie Hailes that I have decided to read and I found it to be a sweet cozy little romance.  A feel good read that you would like curled up in a hammock outside swinging in the spring breeze.

The story takes place in a little town called Rabbits Leap.  Jody is running the committee for the town festival and is drowning.  She hires Christian an entertainment planner to come in to assist her.  But when Christian shows up and tries to take over, she immediately regrets the decisions.  She wasn’t prepared for how cute he was or how well he interacted with her twin sons.  With the pressure closing in and the time-table running out she is starting to wonder if this was a bad idea.  Will Jody and Christian be able to pull off this festival?  Will she let down her walls and let him in?

These characters made this book.  From the snarky adorable twins, to Christian and his suave ways of talking people into things.  Jody is such an amazing woman raising two twin boys on her own with no family but her brother and best friend.  Scraping to get by.  She wants to give back to the town that has been there for her since her family died leaving just her brother and the twins.  Christian in the beginning seems to be only out for his self but he shows more of his true side as the story goes on.

This is a fun read with loads of quirky fun.  It is cozy with a refreshing feel.  Full of humor, fun and lots of love.  I believe that you will fall in love with the folks of Rabbits Leap and come back for more.

A Vicarage Christmas | Blog Tour w/ Review

Banner (1).jpg

A VicaBook Cover (1)rage Christmas 

Blurb: Welcome to Thornwaite, a quaint village tucked up in England’s beautiful but rainy Lake District… where homecomings happen and surprises are in store for the four Holley sisters…

Anna Holley, the third of four sisters, has always felt a little bit forgotten. A family tragedy when she was a child had her retreating deep into shyness, and social anxiety kept her on the fringes of the cozy chaos of the busy vicarage.

After several years away from home, Anna returns for Christmas… and an important announcement from her father. As much as she once loved the village, coming back is hard and puts Anna’s social capabilities to the test.

Avoiding her sisters’ bossy questions, she heads out to the local pub one night, and meets a handsome stranger nursing a pint. Somehow, unburdened by expectations, Simon seems like the perfect person to spill all her secrets to—including a hopeless, long-held crush on her sister’s boyfriend. Confident she’ll never see him again, Anna returns home… only to discover the next day that Simon is actually her father’s new curate!

Anna is beyond mortified, but Simon won’t let her retreat into her usual shyness—and for once Anna is forced to confront the past, and all the fears and feelings she’d tried so long to hide. But with his own heartache that needs to heal, can Simon help Anna to make this the most magical Christmas either of them have known?

MY REVIEW

Wow this book is very deep and emotional.  I was ugly crying 😭.  Such a sad story.

It’s Christmas and Anna is home for the holiday season.  This is her first time home in four years.  She has stayed away for so long on purpose.  She has a hard time dealing with her family and the village life.

The first night back is too much and she escapes to the local pub to breathe.  There she meets a handsome stranger named Simon.  After one too many ciders she spills all her depressing sad feelings.  Knowing she will never see him again made it easy to confide in him.

The next day Anna goes to meet the new curate that will be working with her dad.  Surprised she finds the new curate is Simon.  Now fully embarrassed and hurt she gets angry with him.  How will she make it through the season? Can Simon convince her he has her best interest at heart ❤️?

The characters are well-developed and are continuing to grow, as this is just the beginning for the Holley sisters.  The next book will be about Esther.  Which will allow us to grow with them. I am interested to find out more about the other secrets the sisters have.

Anna has some serious self-esteem issues on top of a lot of guilt she is carrying around. Simon has some guilt of his own as well. Together they may just have the strength they need to heal.

  christmas kissing love actually hugh grant GIFBreak out the tissues ladies!!  You’re in for a tear jerker.  This book will grab you by the heart-strings and twist you up.  It is a deep emotional read.  So be prepared.  I highly recommend this book for all you sentimental peeps!

All she wants for Christmas…

When talented artist Nee Sutherland returns to Butterfly Cove for her sister’s wedding, it’s only a matter of time before she has to face her own bridegroom – Luke Spenser – the man she impulsively married, then left in the middle of the night.

Nee hasn’t picked up her paintbrushes in months, a part of her is broken. She knows Luke might never forgive her, leaving him was the biggest mistake of her life – but could coming home for Christmas be the best decision she’s ever made?

Maybe all she needs is a little Christmas miracle…

EXCERPT

‘I’m not coming to Butterfly Cove.’

‘Luke…’

The ever-present simmer of anger in his gut boiled over. ‘Leave it!’ Damn. None of this was Arron’s fault, not Kiki or Mia’s either. There was only one person responsible for turning his life upside down.

Again.

He shoved a hand through his hair. ‘Sorry.’

His brother hunched closer across the table. ‘You have to speak to her sometime, bro. I don’t know what happened to her in New York, but she’s a mess.’

His temper spiked again. ‘And how is that my problem?’

Aaron gripped his forearm. ‘She’s your wife, Luke. For better, for worse and all that.’

He’d heard enough. He loved Aaron, but if he didn’t shut the hell up, Luke would say something unforgivable. He stood up, lifted his glass and drained the last third of his pint. ‘We’d better get back.’ He left the table without another word.

He was a couple of hundred yards up the road before Aaron caught up with him. Falling into step, he kept his eyes fixed on the road ahead of them. ‘We heard your argument, Kiki and me. After the wedding.’

Luke stopped dead. ‘What?’

Aaron faced him, one shoulder lifted in an apologetic shrug. ‘Outside the barn. We didn’t mean to, we were in the shadows at the side of the building.’

What the hell had they been doing lurking in the dark like that? It had been the night Aaron finally opened his heart to Kiki and…oh. The embarrassed flush on his brother’s face spoke volumes. He raised an eyebrow at him and the redness darkened.

‘Yeah, anyway. We weren’t snooping, but we heard what Nee said, about leaving you being a mistake. She sounded pretty sincere to me. Can’t you at least give her a chance to explain?’

A car approached, and they stepped onto the grass verge to let it pass. As soon as the road was clear again, Luke started walking. He didn’t want to think about the wedding. Didn’t want to think about how delicate and slight Nee had looked, the aching sorrow in her voice when she’d tried to talk to him. He heard Aaron’s footsteps behind him. Without looking around, he held up a hand in warning. ‘No more. The subject is closed.’

He couldn’t give her a chance to explain, because then he’d have to admit to the true source of his anger—himself. For all his protestations, he didn’t care why she’d left. He just wanted her back. And what kind of an idiot did that make him?

MY REVIEW

I loved, loved, loved this book!!!  It was such a heartfelt story.  Full of pain, love, and anger.  Everyone is back at Butterfly Cove again.  But things are not at a happy place at this time and troubles are on the horizon.  Nee is back from New York.  She is withdrawn, lost, a shell of the vibrant person she was.  Broken.  Everyone is on edge with her return as they are unsure how to handle the interaction between Nee and Luke.

Luke is still angry at Nee for leaving and some harsh words have been said, but Nee admitted to him that leaving was the worst mistake she ever made.  Is this true?  Can he forgive?  Will she tell him why she left?  Will she talk about what happened to her in New York?

These characters have us wrapped around their fingers.  They have so much love to give and that does not change in this book.  The show the true meaning of family and the strength that family gives to one another in a time of need.  This story focuses on Nee and Luke.  Nee is really lost and broken inside and unable to come out from the vortex of betrayal and hurt that is swallowing her whole.  Luke is worried about her and he is not going to give up on her.  He is a wonderful man and has a good strong character, so full of love.

This story is a bundle of emotions.  You have the joy of Christmas with family and friends.  You also have the pain and turmoil of someone you love who has lost their way.  You have the love of husbands who would sacrifice anything for their wives.  You have the healing process of abuse and cruelty like nothing you have ever seen.  This series is amazing with all it’s tales of love, hurt, loss and the bond.  Sarah has really wrapped up the Butterfly gang in a nice Christmas Bow.  She really wrote a wonderful ending to her stories of Butterfly Cove.  I will miss my friends at the Butterfly Cove.  But is nice to know that they will be ok.
