Summer at my Sister’s by Emily Harvale #CoverReveal #BlogTour @rararesources @emilyharvale

Cue every single excited gif I’ve ever seen when I saw Emily Harvale had this coming out!!!! Thrilled doesn’t even cover (ah! Get it?) the feelings on this book!!! But on to the reveal!!

What they say: Twin sisters. One scorching summer. A bucketful of secrets.
Diana’s life is perfect. Her twin sister, Josie’s – not so much. They aren’t identical twins. Perhaps the only things they have in common are agreeing their mother can be a nightmare – and their birthdays. This summer they’ll be thirty-five.

Diana has the perfect husband, two talented youngsters, and an adorable dog. She runs a successful business from home, a popular book club, and hosts sparkling parties for her wealthy husband. She always looks as if she’s stepped from the cover of a magazine. Her immaculate second home by the sea, for idyllic summers with her perfect family, was actually featured in one.

Josie has a messy, compact flat, dates, but not relationships, and she can’t even keep a houseplant alive. She moves from job to job, goes clubbing with her friends, and always looks as if she’s fallen through a hedge. She loves Diana, deeply, but each year she declines the invitation to spend the summer with her sister. Or any other family holiday. Because Josie has a secret.

But is Diana’s life so perfect? Or is she hiding something too? When secrets are revealed this summer, everything will change. Josie could finally have the life she’s always wanted … if she’s brave enough to take a chance. And it all begins with a phone call from their mother.

Publication Date: 31st July

#GuestPost The Affliction of Praha by Simon Gillard @simongillard3 #GoodreadsGiveaway

Today I have a guest post from the author of The Affliction of Praha. And there’s a giveaway to head over to Goodreads for after!!thumbnail_TheAfflictionofPrahaCover

The Guest Post:

What inspired me to write ‘The Affliction of Praha’?
I have always loved mysteries books, classics from the likes of Agatha Christie are of course an inspiration, and more recently ‘The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle’ is equally excellent. As a UK citizen, I spent two years living in what is now Slovakia. The setting for my book is 1920s Czechoslovakia, and my time in the region certainly inspired me to create something a little bit different to the usual settings and countries we often find the genre written in. I would like to think that the mixture of a mystery story combined with a historical period, set in a location most readers will be unfamiliar with, should provide for a compelling read.

About the book:
It’s 20th-century Czechoslovakia… and murder comes knocking.
The Teralov family are loved and respected by everyone in Prague, adored for bringing prosperity and hope to its downtrodden people… so nobody expected to find Peter Teralov inexplicably murdered in the streets.
To quell the uproar, expert Soviet detective Edgar Rollenvart soon finds himself tasked with hunting down the one responsible and bringing the killer to justice. He’s confident he can unravel the mystery behind Peter’s killing – despite the mysterious absence of evidence.
Teaming up with Peter’s brother, Edgar embarks on a twisting and impossible case that will take them through the streets and cities of early 1920s Czechoslovakia. As the number of suspects mounts and the evidence seems to go nowhere, Edgar soon realizes that the mystery behind this case runs far deeper than meets the eye…
If you like gripping historical mysteries packed with brutal twists and turns, then you won’t want to miss this dramatic and period-perfect depiction of the early 20th-century in the heart of Europe.

About the author
Simon Gillard is an author with a passion for mystery novels and history alike. He works as a Network Engineer in the IT industry, and he also spent two years in Slovakia, which inspired him to craft The Affliction of Praha and use the nation’s rich history as its setting. When not writing, Simon enjoys reading, motorbikes, skiing and music. He currently lives in London with his beautiful wife and their young daughter.

The Results: Oh my lordy lord how is it this time of the week already? Yes, we’re at the results stage and may I just tell you mine are ABYSMAL! Only really compared to my expectations: I had planned on having Instagram mastered by this way (whereas I practically didn’t visit let alone study it) and I had decided to get through 4 books whereas I ended up starting a book I won’t finish (we are going out on our first long walk today , only second time out with the whole family since lockdown, wohoo!!!)

So I read two books this week as part of the challenge:

Samantha Tonge-The Summer Island Swap (review here) length 368 pages

and Jenny Rabe’ Something Old (The Fake Engagement Series book 1 review here) length 250 pages

So Jenny Rabe’s book was part of a new twist 4 of us went for this week: Because we didn’t know what the book was going to be (hurrah for Jenny Rabe’s excellent book, what a relief I loved it so much!!!) there was 15 points to be had if we read and reviewed by midnight Friday so at least I know I have that! Wohoo!

Reviews for both were left on Amazon and have now been left on Goodreads too. Samantha Tonge’s book just (by a smidgen) pipped Ms Rabe’s to the post but all in all I had the  loveliest time reading both which was what was important.

I’m going to be a chicken and because of said 15 points, say, for this week at least, I’m not going to roll the dice. I’ll stick with my points.

But I’ve so many plans for next week (smile wanes just a minute). No honestly, next week I am going to bring it. Um… yes.. okay. (wanders off trying to condsider next week’s tactics(;))

Have a good weekend everyone, I’m off for a walk!!!!!

Something Old (Book 1 in the fake engagement collection) by Jenny Rabe @chicklitshop #hungryreadersgames2020 @jflake10

IMG_20200611_101731_389Buy link

 

What they say: Emilie Carter never wants to return to Danvers, Massachusetts, but when her childhood home needs to be sorted for sale, she’s forced to tie up loose ends. Her hopes to abandon all ties to the place fails when she’s roped into being a bridesmaid for her ex-best friend and Emilie’s high school sweetheart. No big deal, right?

Wrong.

Dean Wright has worked hard to make a name for himself and continue his father’s fishing business. After years of feeling empty, enter long-time crush, Emilie. When she needs a date for a wedding to show her ex she’s moved on, he takes it a step further by proposing a fake engagement. Her presence stirs up old feelings, and Dean is determined not to let her go this time.

The review: You’ll already know I don’t read enough romance, choosing instead to binge on feel good rom coms. So when this came up, a romance that was pure romance, as part of the Hungry Readers challenge, I eyed it with interest, seeing that actually it had everything I usually love in a book, with a will they won’t they, as well as having to convince people that our lead characters are married. Uh yes, totally in!!!

This is the story of Emilie and Dean. Both were best friends years back, and were separated when Emilie left their small town of Danvers (which was so vivid I felt I was right there!). Emilie is a dancer (swoon) and returns with talk of opening a dance studio but actually we realise that with her backstory comes secrets and little lies she has to tell, as she doesn’t intend on staying around (I loved that there were a select few she confided in).

I beyond enjoyed this book! From the fake pda’s that were too real, to dealing with Ava, a spoilt ex-friend, and Finn HER fiance, I inhaled the whole book, wondering if we could trust Ava OR Finn, how I felt about Dean, and at times Emilie, and wondering if there would be any weddings  at the end of it all!!! Definitely a series I’ll be following with interest and a reminder that I need to broaden my reading horizons!

Rating: 4.5/5

 

#Blogtour #BookReview: The Summer Island Swap by Samantha Tonge @SamTongeWriter @Aria_Fiction #TheSummerIslandSwap #HungryReadersGames2020 @chicklitshop

I am thrilled today to add to my list of #Summerreads (as part of the brilliant Hungry Readers Games led by the fantastic @chicklitshop) this fantastically spellbinding book from the brilliant Samantha Tonge and Aria Fiction that will definitely take you away on a much needed escape!

What they say: Sometimes the best holidays are the ones you least expect… 
After a long and turbulent year, Sarah is dreaming of the five-star getaway her sister has booked them on. White sands, cocktails, massages, the Caribbean is calling to them.

But the sisters turn up to tatty beaches, basic wooden shacks, a compost toilet and outdoor cold water showers. It turns out that at the last minute Amy decided a conservation project would be much more fun than a luxury resort.

So now Sarah’s battling mosquitos, trying to stomach fish soup and praying for a swift escape. Life on a desert island though isn’t all doom and gloom. They’re at one with nature, learning about each other and making new friends. And Sarah is distracted by the dishy, yet incredibly moody, island leader she’s sure is hiding a secret.

The Review: I’m regularly bemoaning the fact that since I started properly blogging, a lot of my fave authors have gone by the wayside, I just never get a chance to get to their books any more! Samantha Tonge was definitely one of those authors, with books that were right up my street, sparkly, bright and vivid, with wistful romance and amazing settings. Luckily enough I had a chance to get back to her books and so, here I am, with a book that is all that and so much more! But I digress.

I loved meeting Sarah, who unfortunately had to deal with a ‘beep’ for a boss (she’s in the hospitality sector). I felt for Sarah especially as she feels so much responsibility for her sister Amy, who has recently won the lottery and is treating them to an extravagant holiday away. Or so Sarah thinks.

The early of this moment gave me many ‘snort out loud’ moments (the best type of moment(;)) as the realisation dawned that actually they were actually heading off to a conservation initiative and I totally felt for her. With the sanctuary type setting comes many characters and I was enthralled with them all as we also followed her sister Amy, the ever enthusiastic Helga and also Jonas.

The setting was amazing, and everything I remembered about Ms. Tonge put me right there. The romance was beautiful and not forced at all, I loved that we weren’t belted over the head with any of the romance on the island (there’s more than you expect and it’s all done brilliantly!) I also sucked in the ‘dear reader’ letter at the end which backs up a beautiful, spell binding novel that provided me with much needed escapism. Thanks so much to Aria for the book in return for an honest review and for allowing me to be part of this beautiful blog tour.

When Life Gives You Lemons by Fiona Gibson @FionaGibson

whenlife

Purchase link

What they say: Curl up with this hilarious, heartwarming read from the Top 5 bestselling author of The Mum Who Got Her Life Back

Sometimes life can be bittersweet . . .

Between tending to the whims of her seven-year-old and the demands of her boss, Viv barely gets a moment to herself. It’s not quite the life she wanted, but she hasn’t run screaming for the hills yet.

But then Viv’s husband Andy makes his mid-life crisis her problem. He’s having an affair with his (infuriatingly age-appropriate) colleague, a woman who – unlike Viv – doesn’t put on weight when she so much as glances at a cream cake.

Viv suddenly finds herself single, with zero desire to mingle. Should she be mourning the end of life as she knows it, or could this be the perfect chance to put herself first?

When life gives you lemons, lemonade just won’t cut it. Bring on the gin!

The Review: You all know of me and my love love relationship with Fiona Gibson’s reads right now, I don’t think I’ve ever not loved a book of hers, finding them all very true to everyday life while being bright, vivid, heartwarming and laugh out loud hilarious, while secretly hoping that some day someone will think that about my books too (yes, her and Sophie Kinsella are my two ‘they inspire me and someday hopefully I can come anywhere near them in terms of my books’ people).

But, I digress (pauses to ponder if I’ve ever not digressed with a Fiona Gibson review). So! I read this as part of The Hungry Readers Games 2020 challenge, popping it straight off Netgalley as a contender, whilst excitedly hopping from foot to foot. This is the story of Viv, who is being put through the grinder as she goes through the menopause, struggling with the fact that her husband isn’t really seeing her or there for her. He is for someone else and we soon realise he’s having an affair with a very Instagram friendly, perfect on all counts (in Viv’s eyes) doctor.

The huge thing in this book was the side characters and I love that as we found out about Viv’s life, we also came to meet her friends, who she didn’t realise were all warriors as she had first thought. The comedy was epic (look out for some eggs that are used to exact some brilliant revenge, yes, I’m petty, what can I say, and then lead us to other eggs that were used for different heart wrenching reasons, yes, this does sound weird but you have to read the book, okay?!)

Mom lit with a sparkle and packing a punch, this was a read I galloped through even though it was 400 pages. The beauty is in the everyday and it was definitely the escapism I needed.

Thanks so much to Avon and Netgalley for the book in return for an honest review.

Rating: 5/5

The Report: Okay, so here we are, D Day. Report day for The Hungry Readers games. Okay. So In my defence, it’s been a Bit Of A Week. I realised at the start of the week I was putting out The Greatest of Enemies and put it out, we had a mini ‘everything’s falling apart day’ in relation to homeschool, we’ve continued trying to convert the garden from being a building site, I’ve been telling the kids they can’t look at screens so I’ve tried not to be a hypocrite (didn’t work, I was called out on the fact that I sit on my Kindle/phone while they’re busy ‘at school’) … Yes, I know, I’m stalling. I’ll get on with it. So I don’t have a problem with how much I read: I read two books

  1. Coming Home to Heritage Cove by Helen Rolfe (242 pages) Read between the 5th and 6th of June
  2. When Life Gives You Lemons by Fiona Gibson (400 pages but my god did not feel like it!!! Read between the 4th to 6th June)
  3. Today I will be reading The Midwife Crisis by Lyndsey Gallagher which I have just started but am LOVING! I won’t get to blog it, but will tweet and instagram (is that a verb?) when I finish (216 pages)

I suppose my problem is more what I DIDN’T do.

  1. Download the Kindle app to track what I was reading (in my defence my phone was crammed full, it’s going to have to go onto somewhere else next week
  2. Learn instagram (covers eyes) Have only joined but am happy to be at 85 followers!
  3. Tweet/ facebook/instagram as I went
  4. Write a blog post for Fiona Gibson’s book (I’ll post next week about it)
  5. Get my you-know-what together!

 

So I guess I’ll aim to do better next week (although as I said I’m happy with what I read and enjoyed every last word of all books!) And I’m happy to accept my points (no roll of the dice this week!!)

#Blogtour #Bookreview Coming Home to Heritage Cove by Helen J. Rolfe @rararesources @HJRolfe

aMB3yZzwMvjTwL4A.jpeg

What they say: Welcome to Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea brimming with character, community and friendship, and the perfect place to fall in love this summer… Melissa rushes back to Heritage Cove when Barney, the man who’s been like a father figure to her since she was a little girl, ends up in hospital. After an absence of five years, her return isn’t going tobe easy, especially when she bumps into Harvey, the love of her life and the man she’s never beenable to forget. For reasons he couldn’t explain at the time, Harvey changed his mind about going with Melissa to start afresh as they’d planned, and life moved on for the both of them. But with Melissa back in the village and determined to stick around to help Barney, they can’t avoid each other forever. Melissa knows she let so many people down by staying away for so long, but she and Harvey blame each other for what happened and neither of them is willing to admit to being in the wrong. When Barney insists on cancelling the Wedding Dress Ball, the charity fundraiser he holds every year in the stunning barn on his property, Melissa and Harvey realise they’re going to have to pull together. Otherwise the man they once knew might be gone forever. And when they unearth a secret Barney has never shared with anyone, they go in search of answers to not only ensure the ball runs this summer, but to bring back the Barney they know and love. Back in the cove after all this time, Melissa gets to see the life she left behind and it’s time to deal with what it was that drove her away in the first place. Beneath the summer sunshine in Heritage Cove, the sea sparkles, the heat rises and new love, reconciliations and the answers to an old love story could bring changes for everyone.
Purchase Links

The Review: I was thrilled to jump into this, as we arrived at the village of Heritage Cove with our lead, Melissa, who has been given bad news about a person who was dear to her many years ago and who she still keeps in contact with. The settings got me straight away, motion picture technicolour, straight out of a movie scenes that actually were the norm throughout this lovely book.

There are multiple stories in this but the one that stole my heart was that of Barney, the old man in question, who has a few secrets that impact both of our leads, Melissa and Harvey, who, whilst trying to figure out Barney and why this year he’s decided he can’t run the Wedding Dress Ball, an event he’s handled for many years, are each trying to figure out each other. I was in from the start to the end of this beautiful book, with vivid descriptions that drew me in a dn held me. I had a few niggles throughout, but they were me being pernickety really and I savoured and enjoyed every second of this warm, all encompassing book that I thoroughly recommend.

Thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.

The Greatest Of Enemies (Abbeyglen book 2) by … well, me!!

Cover Example 5.JPG-1What they say:

Get ready for fireworks as two women with very different personalities become housemates!

Bex has settled in well into the small town of Abbeyglen. Yes, she misses her housemate Holly, but she has plenty to do what with the setup of the new Caulfield’s café, her blogging and of course her work in Blackwater Financial Services.

Louise is shocked when she arrives in the town of Abbeyglen to find it has changed, everything looks too new and shiny, and who is this person in Holly’s apartment?!

With Bex’s bff heading for domestic bliss, some unwelcome changes in work, and now the arrival of eternally negative Louise, can Bex remain her usual chirpy self or will handbags at dawn, daytime and night-time too bring out a side to her she never knew existed?

For fans of Sophie Kinsella, Christie Barlow and Rosie Green.

Purchase link

So there we go, the second book of the Abbeyglen series. You may or may not have read book 1, where local Holly Caulfield won the lottery and was looking for her friend Louise, who was nowhere to be found for most of the book. Now here, she’s back with a vengeance… and there’s a storm coming too …

And if you want to go back to the start …

cover-1

Holly Caulfield has won the Irish National Lottery and sets in motion a plan to save the village of Abbeyglen. But who would have thought that giving money away could be so difficult?

With a resident’s association that’s clamouring for more and more money, an old lady who’s decided that a dream cruise is in her grasp and a couple who may not want that dream wedding after all, Holly’s finding it hard to keep it together!

With a new love interest and an ex-husband hot on her heels, it’s up to Holly to figure out what can truly make her happy.

Purchase Link 

And what I say: I’m a bit in shock today, I didn’t really expect to put this out, I’ve slowed down on every front in the last few weeks and had kind of resigned myself to not putting much out this year so I’m thrilled to be able to show you what happens when Holly’s best friend, who we were all wondering about for most of book 1, arrives in Abbeyglen. The thing is, she isn’t bringing sunshine and brightness with her …

Anyhoo big sleep deprived hugs to you all, and hope you enjoy!
