#CoverReveal! ‘Just My Type’ by Hannah Doyle (@byhannahdoyle) @bookish_becky @headlinepg

I was asked by the fabulous, Becky Hunter, from Headline Books, to reveal the cover of Hannah Doyle’s upcoming novel. Of course I said yes!! I adored Hannah’s previous novel, ‘The Year of Saying Yes’, so it is an honour to have been asked!

‘Just My Type’ is due to be published by Headline in April 2019, but is available to pre-order right now from Amazon.

Are you ready for the cover?!??

JUST MY TYPE is the second novel from Hannah Doyle, author of the laugh-out-loud hit rom-com THE YEAR OF SAYING YES, perfect for fans of Love Island, What Fresh Hell by Lucy Vine, Anna Bell and Dolly Alderton’s Everything I Know About Love.

He’s my type on paper . . . but IRL?

Meet Jasmine.
– The quirky/cool photographer to a superstar blogger
– She’s going on a date with a SUPER hot guy on the London Eye tonight
– Best friend Mila is her wifey for life
– This millennial is #LivingHerBestLife

But fast-forward a few hours, and the reality isn’t quite so picture perfect. Jasmine hates her stuck-up blogger boss. She can barely afford rent in her stupid London flat. Her best friend seems to have all her sh*t together. Oh, and that date she was so excited about? She got dumped. On the London Eye. In the middle of a thunderstorm. With a bunch of tourists watching…

Best friend Mila decides that Jasmine needs a new ‘type on paper’, because Jasmine’s current criteria is so off that her dating history is one long line-up of fools. So Mila challenges Jasmine to look once, if not twice, at the guys who wouldn’t normally fit her ‘type’. With nothing to lose, Jasmine accepts. Maybe, just maybe, she’ll surprise herself.

I don’t know about you, but I am so very excited to get my hands on a copy of this! It sounds right up my street! I don’t like to wish time away but hurry up April!

#BlogTour! #Review – Christmas Spirit by Nicola May (@nicolamay1) @rararesources

Another Christmas read for you all today, this time it’s for Nicola May’s ‘Christmas Spirit’. Many thanks to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite and ARC, here is my review:

It’s two days before Christmas – and Evie Harris finds herself both manless and jobless. After a chance encounter with handsome Greg (and egged on by her toy-boy-eating friend, Bea) she agrees to work at a homeless shelter on Christmas Day.


Striking up an unlikely friendship with homeless Yves, Evie begins an unwitting journey of spiritual awakening, all set against the sparkling winter backdrop of London landmarks. 


A New Year’s Eve revelation is on its way . . . but will it leave Evie with a happy heart, or will she allow the pre-Christmas past to dictate her future?

What does TWG think?

Despite being a novella sized read, ‘Christmas Spirit’ sure has Hell packs a punch in such a short space of time. Instead of doing what a lot of people do where the homeless are concerned, Evie decides to spend her Christmas giving back to the community, yet she ends up being the person who finds herself facing the harsh reality of uncertainty as she speaks to the homeless, trying to understand their situation.

Personally I think the topic of this novella is certainly poignant and one, if I’m being totally honest, I wouldn’t expect in a Christmas read. Not that that is a bad thing btw, because it isn’t. The fact I wouldn’t usually expect it meant that I sat up and took notice. I guess one might say that this nifty little book put things in perspective.

Despite the serious undertone, ‘Christmas Spirit’ made me chuckle and had that feel good element down to a fine art. I haven’t read many of Nicola May’s books but after this one I certainly will be.

A little festive firecracker!

#BlogTour! #Review – Christmas at the Beach Hut by Veronica Henry (@Veronica_Henry) @RebeccaGray @OrionBooks

I nearly bit Rebecca Gray’s hand off (not literally!!) when she asked me to be involved in the blog tour for Veronica Henry’s upcoming novel, ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’! I fangirl Veronica Henry every time she likes a tweet of mine/replies to me – can you guess that I am a HUGEEEEE fan? Thought so! Today I am super excited to be sharing my review of ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ which is set to be released on the 15th November. Many thanks to Orion for the ARC and the blog tour invite. Here is my review:

518+CQcR10L

Everyone adores Christmas . . .

Especially Lizzy Kingham. But this year, she is feeling unloved and underappreciated by her family. The present-buying, decorating and food shopping have all been left to her. So she wonders … what would happen if she ran away and left them to it?

Lizzy heads to her favourite place: a beach hut on the golden sands of Everdene. There she meets an unlikely collection of new friends, all running away from something. But the spirit of Christmas gets under Lizzy’s skin: soon the fairy lights are twinkling and the scent of mulled wine mingles with the sea air.

Back at Pepperpot Cottage, her family are desperate to find her. For Christmas isn’t Christmas without Lizzy. Can they track her down in time and convince her she means the world to them, every day of the year?

What does TWG think?

If you’re already a fan of Veronica Henry’s novels, you’ll be aware of her previous novels involving a beach hut. Whilst this latest addition to the beach hut family is indeed a relation, you do not need to read the previous books, ‘The Beach Hut’ and ‘The Beach Hut Next Door’ before tucking into this festive delight. That said, I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to read the books in order or just because, as I have never read a book by this author that I didn’t like.

Anyway, back to Christmas. I know, can you believe it’s nearly upon us? Lizzie can’t, what with being made redundant several days before the big day itself, AND getting a last-minute glitter bomb being dumped on her well thought out Christmas plan. I mean come on, don’t people realise that Christmas Day takes 364 days of planning? Every year, Lizzie loves to decorate the Christmas tree with her family, tucking into a piping hot meal and twerking to ‘The Snowman’ (maybe that’s just me…), but this year things don’t quite go to plan. Maybe Lizzie is asking for too much by wanting all of her family to get involved in the family tradition. Maybe her family are looking through their rose-tinted glasses and expect Christmas to fall down the chimney like Saint Nick himself. I don’t know. Either way, Lizzie is a bit miffed and she’s had enough.

Lizzie has some baubles, I’ll give her that! How many women would drop things for Christmas just like that? Actually don’t answer that!! Not only is Lizzie’s Christmas not going to plan, her new-found friends Harley, Leanne, and Jack, aren’t exactly feeling the Christmas spirit either. I won’t delve into the nitty gritty details, but lets just say that there are a few touching stories coming out of the mouths of the other characters.

Even though all of the characters have descended on the beach hut to get away from a traditional Christmas, I couldn’t help but feel the Christmas cheer from where I was sitting. Isn’t that what it’s all about; eating good food, being surrounded by friends and family old and new? If so, Lizzie and her new crew ticked every single box! Whilst I couldn’t imagine not being at home for Christmas Day myself, I felt a slight pang of jealousy. Everything just seemed to care free, relaxing and how it should be.

I thought the way in which Veronica Henry incorporated feelings of depression and anxiety into her storyline was brilliantly done, and something a lot of people will be able to relate with whether its due to Christmas, menopause, or something else in their lives. As someone who suffers with depression and anxiety myself due to chronic illnesses, I welcomed the topic as it highlighted just how much stigma shouldn’t be attached to it, as well as showing that even though someone is sitting there with a massive smile on their face or getting on with things like usual, it doesn’t always mean that everything is hunky dory. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not up to their loved ones to notice a change in their behaviour, however, it certainly makes a difference if people just stopped to take a moment to think about someone other than themselves as people with depression or anxiety will not go and ask for support.

‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ is a story that is not only laced with poignancy and rawness due to the topics it highlights via Lizzie and other characters, it’s also a story that is laced with oodles of festive cheer and warmth. Put it this way, if this book came with an additional festive treat, I would be shouting loudly for a tinsel blanket (only softer). Why? Because ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ is sparkly, one of a kind, cosy, and incredibly touching. A novel which glistens from every direction and fills hearts with joy every time it’s looked at.

I absolutely loved every inch of ‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ and, having already read double figures worth of Christmas novels so far, I have to say that Veronica Henry’s novel is my favourite Christmas book of 2018. The warmth, the community spirit, the festivities, the heart-warming topics, the wonderful characters – just everything. I loved it all. A perfect, perfect read this Christmas and for the other 364 days of the year – outstanding!

‘Christmas at the Beach Hut’ will be published on the 15th November but can be pre-ordered now from Amazon – I urge you all to pre-order or put it on your Christmas lists!!

#CoverReveal! ‘Rosie’s Travelling Teashop by Rebecca Raisin(@jaxandwillsmum) @HQDigitalUK

There’s nothing like warming the cockles with a book about a Teashop – I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely freezing cold and the thought of a piping hot cuppa is rather pleasing! I’m sorry to disappoint though as I have no cuppas, however Rosie may have some in her travelling Teashop! Shall we take a look?!

Meet Rosie, introverted Michel-starred chef, tea & cake aficionado with a slight case of OCD and an unfortunate habit of turning robotic in social situations…

And a tiny problem with not filtering the things she shouldn’t say.

Despite that, her life is great, isn’t it? She’s worked her way up in the cliquey culinary scene in London, she’s married to a man who understand her foibles and still loves her, and she has an itemized plan for the future…

Until Rosie’s thirty-second birthday when her life takes an unexpected turn and she grapples with this new version of herself. Can she be the kind of person that lives on the fly? Who takes risks? Who doesn’t know what each day will bring! 

Rosie’s a dab hand at cooking but can she get the recipe right for her own love life? 

 A perfect holiday read about taking chances, learning to love yourself, and living outside of ordinary! 

Squeal! I am super excited to delve into Rebecca Raisin’s delicious new book, are you? If so, you can pre-order your copy right now from any of the links listed below:

#CoverReveal! Snowed in at the Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green (@Rosie_Green1988) @rararesources

You should be well aware by now that TWG LOVES a cover reveal! I am delighted to be revealing the cover for Rosie Green’s upcoming delight, ‘Snowed in at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’. It’s a beauty.

You ready to see it?!?

The biggest snowfall in years has blanketed Sunnybrook, cutting the village off from the outside world. For Fen, who finds herself snowed in at The Little Duck Pond Cafe, it’s little more than a minor inconvenience. Her love life is finally running smoothly; it looks as if she’s found the perfect man for her.

But then a shocking secret threatens to destroy Fen’s new-found happiness.

Will being snowed in be the final straw? Or will Fen find a way through the snowdrifts to the perfect love?

See what I mean?! You can pre-order your copy now from Amazon! (Will be published on the 15th November)

About the author.

Rosie Green has been scribbling stories ever since she was little. Back then they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by ‘the baddies’. Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all, unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.

Rosie’s brand new series of novellas is centred on life in a village café. The first two stories in the series are: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe and Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café.

#BlogTour! #Review – Snowflakes Over Holly Cove by Lucy Coleman (@LucyColemanAuth) @Brookcottagebks @Aria_Fiction

I am a massive fan of Lucy Coleman’s novels, so I am thrilled to help kickstart the blog tour with my review of Lucy’s upcoming novel, ‘Snowflakes Over Holly Cove’. Big thank you to Brook Cottage Books for the blog tour invite and the ARC. Here is my review:

Snowflakes med
As the snowflakes start to fall, Holly Cove welcomes a new tenant to the beautiful old cottage on the beach…

For lifestyle magazine journalist Tia Armstrong, relationships, as well as Christmas, have lost all their magic. Yet Tia is up against a Christmas deadline for her latest article ‘Love is, actually, all around…’

So, Tia heads to Holly Cove where the restorative sea air and rugged stranger, Nic, slowly but surely start mending her broken heart. Tia didn’t expect a white Christmas, and she certainly never dared dream that all her Christmas wishes might just come true…
Set in Caswell Bay on the stunningly rugged Gower Coast, the cottage nestles amid the limestone cliffs and the woodlands; the emotions run as turbulently as the wind-swept sea.

As cosy as a marshmallow-topped cup of cocoa, fall in love with a heart-warming festive story from the bestselling author of The French Adventure.

What does TWG think?

I had no idea, until I read ‘Snowflakes Over Holly Cove’, that a mere ONE word could be the culprit of my eyes casually leaking. I know….it’s funny how much emotion the word ‘eggnog’ has, isn’t it? Yes, I am being serious. The word ‘eggnog’ made me burst into tears. I’m still not too sure whether my tears were because the word reminded me of what it actually tastes like, even though I have never had eggnog pass my lips, or whether it was because…..oh, heck. I can’t tell you can I? Many of you may associate eggnog with Christmas, so the fact that it is in a Christmas book may not come as a surprise to some. However, if you’re a soppy date like me, ‘eggnog’ may not be just for Christmas. You’ll see what I mean when you read the book….I hope.

Anyway, eggnog aside, ‘Snowflakes Over Holly Cove’ is such a stunning read, so much so that I felt so bereft when the book came to an end. I wasn’t emotionally read to leave Tia and co behind at all. I would really love for Tia or Olweyn, or even Max, to come back again in another story as their personalities and life stories are so giving, I would love to be in their company once again. Plus, I’m very nosy and I don’t think these characters have let all of their skeletons out of the closets yet.

Tia hasn’t exactly had a calm few months and, when she returns to work, she can’t help but feel bewildered by the job her boss has sent her on. Did her boss even pay attention to what has happened in Tia’s life recently? Does she even care?

Despite her reservations, Tia begins the job with an open mind and ends up getting more than she bargained for. Maybe her boss did good after all?

‘Snowflakes Over Holly Cove’ is a book which just kept on giving. Every time I turned the page I was surrounded by yet another laugh out loud event, or a situation which made me stop to gather my thoughts – reading this book was like waking up on Christmas morning to see if Santa had been. The excitement of what lay beneath each page rivalling the excitement of what lay underneath the Christmas wrapping paper left by Santa. Feeling loved by fictional characters just like being loved by good ol’ Saint Nic. The excitement of not knowing what was a round the corner, just like the excitement when reaching for every new present. Everything about this book was just…..perfection, without a doubt.

Lucy Coleman’s story telling where ‘Snowflakes Over Holly Cove’ is concerned, has raised the bar extremely high for future novels. This author doesn’t just write words and expect her readers to imagine the Christmas magic or the deep rooted emotion, instead she writes the emotion from her own heart as though she has endured similar. Story telling of this calibre cannot be taught, you either have it or you don’t, and it is pretty clear that Lucy Coleman has that beautiful magic flowing from her mind through to her fingertips.

As I said above, a certain word made me burst into tears and whilst I can sit back and giggle about it now, my heart broke at the time because I had become incredibly invested in Tia and her life, I felt my own sense of loss for that character.

If only the feelings of love, serenity and goodwill could be bottle, I would be one extremely happy lady. I couldn’t have wished for a better book to read when my own life is crashing down on me, and I felt the love from the characters seep into my mind like the first coffee of the morning. In my eyes, this is exactly why I love reading, because of books like this.

A humbling, emotional, poignant, touching novel which wrapped my heart in a cosy rug whilst also making me cry because of the eggnog – what more could a girl want?

#CoverReveal! Dating Down by Diane Louise (@DianeLouise12) @RaRaResources


Another cover reveal for you guys today, this time its for a romantic, and seemingly rather funny novel! ‘Dating Down’ by Diane Louise will be published on the 30th August, but seeing as there is another…..26 days and 5 hours to go (or so), you’ll have to make do with the cover and the link to pre-order. Sorry!

Before I reveal the cover to you, I have to show you this little teaser that made me laugh out loud!


Please say that I’m not the only one who sniggered whilst reading that?! Yes, I have a filthy mind, and no, I am not ashamed!

So, without further ado, here is the cover of ‘Dating Down’ by Diane Louise. Big thanks to RaRaResources for asking me to be involved!


Suddenly single and unexpectedly poor, it’s definitely safe to say that Alexis Harland is not living the
life of her dreams.

Although she’s determined that nothing, not one little thing, will stop her return from poverty. Well,
almost nothing. Her pride might get in the way a little. And possibly her family. And maybe the fact
that she hasn’t got a clue where to start.

Many years ago, Alexis was swept away from life on a caravan park and introduced to a world of
riches and glamour. All thanks to a wealthy man who married her, reinvented her… and then
dumped her for a younger model at the first sign of cellulite.
Now Alexis is stranded, struggling to keep her head above water and her history a secret from her
highbrow friends.

As if that isn’t enough for a woman to deal with, one night she comes home to find a sexy man has
landed, quite literally, on her doorstep. A man hell-bent on testing everything Alexis thinks she
knows about true happiness.

Caught between the life she knows and her blossoming love, can Alexis afford to let go of her
unwavering pride, kiss her social status goodbye and accept that stepping back to square one is
sometimes a huge leap forward?

This book sounds right up my street, if I’m not on the blog tour for it already, I need to be! (I can’t remember!). That said, I am wondering why the lady on the cover isn’t looking happier to be sharing space with a rather fetching male. I mean, I’m surprised that she is still standing!!!!

Don’t forget that you have to wait until the 30th August, but if you don’t want to miss out on when the book becomes available to pre-order, you can make sure you’re ahead of the game via the this link….here!

About the author.

Diane Louise is a dairy farmer’s wife from the UK who doesn’t know a Holstein from a Hereford.
But what she does know is how to write a funny story. Three years ago she tried to write steamy
romance and sucked at it. Honestly, her stiff upper lip made her heroes more wet blankets than wet
dreams. With a steely determination to avoid milking the cows, she turned her hand to Romantic
Comedy and a star was born. Well, in her mind at least.

Fancy getting to know the woman behind the words?
She hangs around Facebook daily, desperately avoiding housework, and loves nothing more than
chatting to fellow lovers of Romantic Comedy over at Di’s Romantic Comedy Club. Or, if you don’t do
Facebook, that’s cool, because she also sends a monthly email to her readers, making sure they
never miss a new release and sharing behind the scene info about her books.
