BLOG TOUR | IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT

One night will change their lives forever…

Georgia Bailey is closing up her little charity shop in Oakbarrow when she gets a mysterious late night call from a stranger, threatening to jump off the town’s bridge.

Something about the man’s voice is faintly familiar but all she can do is stay on the line and, after talking for hours and losing sense of time passing, coax him back from the edge.

The next morning, Georgia walks to work, buys a festive latte from Leo (who she’s had a crush on for months!) at the local coffee shop, and is shocked when she suddenly recognizes the voice from last night…

A heartwarming festive love story that reminds us that even in the darkest of times, hope is always just around the corner!

This is a wonderful contemporary Christmas romance, just in time for the holidays. An amazing romantic tale filled with loss, sadness, happiness and love. Plenty of memories recreated from the forgotten past. It all starts with a call for help.

Georgia is the manager of the One Light Charity shop. She is working late one night when a call for help comes in from a man who has the wrong number. He sounds so familiar, yet so devastated and sad. She can’t bear to make him call the right number.

Leo owns It’s A Wonderful Latte coffee shop. Business has been bad and he is on the verge of losing everything. He has given up on life and is ready to end it all, but when he has second thoughts he turns to the flyer he finds to reach out for help. When he finds he dialed the wrong number, he begs the beautiful voice on the phone not to hang up. And she doesn’t. She has save his life and for that he will be forever grateful.

When Georgia realizes that her crush at the coffee shop is the voice from that night, she hides who she really is. She doesn’t want him to be embarrassed by it. So she sets off on a mission to help him save his business and gain his Christmas spirit back.

In the process of helping Leo, Georgia brings life back to the abandoned High Street. With shop owners returning and her feelings for Leo growing, Georgia realizes that it could all come crashing down at any moment. Will her little white lie destroy all that she worked to build?

I really can’t express what a wonderful book this was. It was real and full of emotions, that reach deep down into your soul. The characters are wonderful and amazing. Georgia is strong, determined and always puts others before herself. Going out of her way to help everyone, even if it is at risk to her. Leo is a strong and sad man. He carries the weight of the world on his shoulders and at the beginning of this book he really breaks down and almost gives up.

This story gives you a reality check on what most people don’t realize. That even though we may look ok on the outside, doesn’t mean that everything is alright behind closed doors. Some can mask their problems better than others. Even though we don’t know someone is hurting, they can be on the edge of all hopelessness. It touches deep on the sensitive subject of suicide. A really soul searching story.

Overall this book is a steady paced story, full of love, loneliness, loss and the meaning of someone to listen. It tells the tales of the past, the present and the future wanted. An original story mixed with an old Christmas classic. Truly beautiful story with even more beautiful characters. So if you love a good romance, then this book is for you. Hands down the top Christmas Story of the year.

review 2

Jess is a sweet shy girl. But Jess is going through a tough time.  She is diagnosed with depression and instead of a supportive boyfriend, he is a jerk and walks out and never comes back.  So on top of dealing with her depression, she is also dealing with a broken heart.   With the love of her two best friends Jay and Katie, she will heal.  But will she heal completely.

Luka is an amazing cellist.  He has moved to Bristol to start over.  His heart is broken and he needs to heal and learn to trust again. Sometimes he feels like his loneliness will swallow him whole.  So he pours his heart and soul into his music.

Jess is on the edge of her depression.  But one day the music coming out of the apartment next door knocks her for a loop.  That is how Luka finds her.  In the hall on the floor crying.  What has this beautiful girl in tears?  He feels protective over her.  Can they both heal their broken hearts?

This book was amazing.  “Bravo! Bravo!”   If I could give it more than a 5 star rating I would, because it deserves it.  This book is so emotionally charged.  There were so many up and down moments that you will feel it deep in your bones.  Love, sorrow, betrayal, self-doubt, happiness…..just……everything.  Claire’s writing style is amazing.  It feels as if she poured her heart and soul into this novel, into her wonderful characters.  Claire really does know how to write an emotional book, that will draw you in and have you invested from the very first chapter.

Overall this book was outstanding.  Claire is a very talented author who knows how to blend emotions together and create a wonderful master piece in her story.  Her characters are not only lovable, but easy to relate to.  This creates a very life-like story.  The story flowed at an easy to read steady pace, that contained flash backs to help build the characters up and help the readers to get to know them better.  I was so blown away by her story.  I can’t wait till the next book comes out.  I bet it will be just as good as this one.

BLOG TOUR | A VICARAGE WEDDING

vicarage wedding51nn1KvKhiL (1)A Vicarage Wedding 

Blurb: Rachel Holley has always dreamed of a wedding—the white dress, the fairy tale, and of course, the happily-ever-after. But when her fiancé breaks it off the night before, claiming she doesn’t love him, Rachel’s fairy tale ends in ashes. 

Homeless, hopeless, and feeling like her life has been completely derailed, Rachel must start over in all sorts of ways—and hold her head up high in the fishbowl of her tiny village. The last person she expects to become a friend is Sam West, the taciturn owner of The Bell, Thornthwaite’s rougher pub, and a little rough around the edges of himself. 

But as Rachel gets to know Sam, and sees him caring for his orphaned nephew, she finds herself drawn to this enigmatic man. Nothing about Sam is what Rachel expected in a life partner, and yet she can’t deny their increasing closeness. But can love flourish on the rebound? And will there be a vicarage wedding after all?

review 2I just love this series.  I like how it is set in another place that almost at times seems back in time, but really is in modern time.  I easily forget that.  This story in the series focuses on Rachael Holley.  It is a story to self discovery.  When Rachael is jilted at the altar by her fiance the night before their wedding, she is forced to take a look at her life and see what her fiance’ meant about not being in love with him.

As the story goes it tells of her dreams and how she had her life planned out down to the perfect man to the big house with the dog.  When Rachael meets Sam, it causes her to step back and evaluate what it is she really wants, who she really is and why.

This story was an inspirational read, as are the first two in the series.  Each book containing some sort of real life lesson.   Full of emotions, these stories tend to be relatable and easy to read.  This particular story points out that happiness is not always the fairy tale you read about in stories, but it is hard and challenging.  But first and foremost, you must believe in yourself before you can love.

So if you are looking for a story that has meaning and will pull on your heart-strings, then this book is perfect for you.  I highly suggest starting at the beginning of the series, but you don’t have to.  It is easy to read as a standalone and not be lost.

NO SAD SONGS

By: Frank Morelli

Following a family tragedy, 18-year-old Gabe LoScuda suddenly finds himself thrust into the role of caregiver for his ailing grandfather. Between the shopping trips and the doctor visits with Grandpa, Gabe and his friend John try to salvage their senior year, meet girls, and make the varsity baseball team. It doesn’t take long for Gabe to realize that going to school and looking after a grandfather with Alzheimer’s is more work than he ever imagined.

And when long-lost Uncle Nick appears on the scene, Gabe soon finds that living with Nick and Grandpa is like babysitting two grown men. Aside from John, the only person who truly understands Gabe is Sofia, a punk-rocking rebel he meets at the veteran’s hospital. When these three unlikely friends are faced with a serious dilemma, will they do what it takes to save Grandpa? If there’s a chance of preserving the final shreds of Grandpa’s dignity, Gabe may have to make the most gut-wrenching decision of his life—and there’s no way out.

excerpt2

3) from chapter 4 Stitches and Shock Therapy

pp.37-38

I check-in with the receptionist. “Make your grandfather comfortable in the waiting room,” she says, “The doctor will be with you shortly.” I’ve heard that phrase before—it’s code for “have fun keeping the old man in check for the next twenty minutes.”

I sweep a still-humming Grandpa into the crowded room and we sit down on a pair of rusty folding chairs in the corner. There’s a table full of last year’s magazines beside us. I scoop up a copy of Highlights for Children and skim through a “Goofus and Gallant” comic. I used to love this crap when I was a kid, waiting for the doctor or dentist with Mom, and I can’t lie—I still love the stuff. Plus, it provides cover. I can duck behind the wrinkled pages and pretend no one is staring at Grandpa as he continues to hum his tune and dig for earwax.

I’m doing a good job of blending in with the grey walls when something—or rather someone—catches my eyes. But not in the way you’re thinking. Not really. More like if you’re walking down the street and a man-eating lizard crosses the sidewalk in front of you; like, in a

weirded-out, scared, but still kind of fascinated sort of way.

There’s at least a dozen metal hoops hanging from her ears and a thick, painful-looking stud pushed through the corner of her eyebrow. Her tight, black jeans are torn to shreds on each thigh. Patches of olive-colored skin and tattoo ink shine through. Her black t-shirt reads “Shock-Therapist” in lime-green, block letters, and there’s a cartoony drawing of what looks like Joey Ramone dead center. Her hair is dark and straight, and it hangs in thin wisps over her ears and sections of her forehead. There’s a thick, leather bracelet tied around her wrist with a skull and crossbones woven through the basket pattern. A pair of raggedy headphones hangs upside down from her face. The cord is a tangled mass of frayed rubber and coppery wires that snakes down to a bright yellow Walkman clipped to her pocket. The volume is turned up admirably loud—so loud that I can almost hear the lyrics from across the waiting room. Something hard, fast, and mindless.

Punk music.

I don’t know how long I stare at her before she reanimates from a lifeless trance and our eyes meet. I’m so startled I can’t even look away real fast and pretend I’d been stretching my neck or something. Her eyes are a deep brown. Almost scary brown. Like swamp water. Or a mud puddle. But there’s something inviting about them, too. I can’t explain it.

Grandpa’s tune suddenly stops and he finishes the digital excavation of his ear canal. He throws his arm around me and shouts, “My grandson!” He then sags back in the folding chair and nods off on his own shoulder. It’s annoying, but I’m used to it. At least he knows my identity for once.
