#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.

#BlogTour! #Review – The Place We Called Home by Jenny Oliver (@JenOliverBooks) @HQStories


The third and final blog tour for today is for ‘The House We Called Home’ by Jenny Oliver! Thank you to HQStories for the blog tour invite and the ARC of the book. Here is my review:

The house where Stella and her sister Amy grew up never changes – the red front door, the breath-taking view over the Cornish coast, her parents in their usual spots on the sofa. Except this summer, things feel a little different…

Stella’s father is nowhere to be seen, yet her mother – in suspiciously new Per Una jeans – seems curiously unfazed by his absence, and more eager to talk about her mysterious dog-walking buddy Mitch.

Stella’s sister Amy has returned home with a new boyfriend she can barely stand and a secret to hide, and Stella’s husband Jack has something he wants to get off his chest too. Even Frank Sinatra, the dog, has a guilty air about him.

This summer, change is in the air for the Whitethorns…

What does TWG think?

Well, I am sure that a lot of us, if not all of us, have been involved in heated family issues at some point in our lives! For the Whitethorns however, family disputes seem to be a rather regular occurrence, but they wouldn’t know that would they? Seeing as communication isn’t exactly their fortes!

I don’t know if it’s just me, but Jenny Oliver’s writing style seemed to be a bit different this time round. I’m not too sure if that’s because of the subject she was writing about, or whether her writing has changed direction, either way it did make me sit up and take notice. I guess part of me didn’t find this book to be as cosy as her other reads, which is why I probably noticed the change.

That said, the overall storyline is definitely full of hope and I thoroughly enjoyed the humour that was evident throughout the entire novel. I ADORED Sonny and the guy, Amy, had brought back home to meet her family. I thought that they were absolutely hilarious, especially the way that they lifted the storyline due to their carefree attitudes.

‘The House We Called Home’ is an enjoyable read which highlights a very important message regarding family disputes, relationships, and what to do with a drain cover. The theme of the book is one that needs to be given a lot of attention as there is a lot going on, but I don’t think that that is a bad thing at all. I loved the way that Jenny Oliver incorporated her trademark humour into a deep storyline, making me laugh like a seal more than once.

Jenny Oliver has a real knack in creating some rather memorable and hilarious characters, making her stories come to life quicker than a dog is able to pick up a piece of food that has fallen to the ground. ‘The House We Called Home’ is written in such a poignant manner, you may even wish to remodel your own house or your relationships after reading this book!

Enjoyable, hopeful and very touching, roll on the next book!

#BlogTour! #Review – #AloneTime by Stephanie Rosenbloom (@Stephronyt) @TransworldBooks @HJ_Barnes #SoloTraveler

twitter_post
I am delighted to be hosting the second (and final) blog post for the Paris portion of the blog tour for Stephanie Rosenbloom’s ‘Alone Time’! Huge thanks to Transworld Books for the blog tour invite and ARC. Make sure you check out tomorrow’s stop on the tour as their focus is on Istanbul!

33295222
Travelling with friends and family is usually thought of as a privilege. In theory, anyway. In practice, it’s more often about debating which sights to see, panicking over diminishing phone batteries and bickering over what to eat. Not much joy in that. But alone you can do as you please. You can wander markets, relish silence, go to a park. Go to Paris. Why not?

In Alone Time, New York Times travel columnist Stephanie Rosenbloom travels alone in four seasons to four remarkable cities – Paris, Istanbul, Florence and New York – exploring the sensory experience of solitude. Along the way she illuminates the psychological arguments for alone time, revealing that whether you recognize it or not, it’s good to be alone now and then.

This is a book about the pleasures and benefits of savouring the moment, examining things closely, using all your senses to take in your surroundings, whether travelling to faraway places or walking the streets of your own city. Through on-the-ground observations and anecdotes, and drawing on the thinking of artists, writers and innovators who have cherished solitude, Alone Time lays bare the magic of going solo.

What does TWG think?

Four different cities, four different seasons, and one solo traveller. Is travelling alone considered brave, or a disaster waiting to happen? Personally, I think it’s a brave thing to do. I have never been to any of the four cities mentioned in this book (booooo) and, whilst I would take someone’s arm off to do so, I would poop my pants if I had to travel out of country, all on my own. Stephanie Rosenbloom however, decided to embark on a solo travel to various parts of the world, highlighting the importance of ‘Alone Time’. So yes, I do think that she is brave because being ‘alone’ has always been considered as a negative thing. A lot of people dislike spending time on their own. A lot of people feel happier when they’re surrounded by a lot of people. Me? I’m used to being on my own, but that doesn’t mean that I am brave enough to travel to a foreign country on my own!

As I said above, people consider being on their own as a negative thing, so when someone is out and about in a restaurant grabbing dinner by themselves, people look at them like they have two heads. Why do people think its weird if someone eats out alone? Should we make people feel bad for grabbing their spaghetti carbonara in an Italian restaurant on their lonesome? No, we shouldn’t. I love the fact that Rosenbloom sticks two fingers up (in the most politest way) to the belief that dining out alone isn’t right. She proves that its right! She’s gone and done it in four different cities! Although saying that, maybe their outlooks are different compared to ours?

I enjoyed the premise of ‘Alone Time’, and I thought that it was rather interesting following Stephanie’s journey of self discovery as it gave me a lot of food for thought, making me view things in a completely different manner. I do appreciate that this is a memoir, but I found that the addition of the quotes took me away from Stephanie’s personal experience. Even though ‘Alone Time’ is an honest account, part of me thinks that it could have gone a little bit deeper in terms of Stephanie’s personality.

‘Alone Time’ is an enlightening, thought-provoking read that will give you the kick up the backside to go and do something on your own, that you wouldn’t normally do. It’s about time that someone took the negativity away from being alone, and I can’t think of a better way to do it than this. Job well done, Stephanie!

‘Alone Time’ will be published on the 14th June, but it can be pre-ordered now from Amazon

Jaz Winters stuck a pin in a map and fled to the village of Sunnybrook, looking for a brand new life – and after a rocky start, it’s beginning to look as if she made the right decision. Her blossoming friendship with Ellie and Fen has seen her through some dark times, and she’s managed to land two jobs – waitress at The Little Duck Pond Café and working as a weekend tour guide at Brambleberry Manor, the country house that’s been in Fen’s family for generations.

Sure, life isn’t totally perfect. There’s the irritating know-it-all guy who keeps popping up on her manor tours, for a start. He seems determined to get under Jaz’s skin whether she likes it or not. But she supposes it’s a small price to pay for the relative peace she’s found, living in Sunnybrook. But just as Jaz is beginning to think rosier times are on the horizon, a shock encounter looks set to shatter her fragile happiness.

#BlogTour! #Review – The Cliff House by Amanda Jennings (@MandaJJennings) @HQStories

CliffHouse_BlogTour
Huge thanks to HQ for asking me to kick off the blog tour for ‘The Cliff House’! Incredibly honoured. Here is my review:

41AgGB0GuvL
Some friendships are made to be broken

Cornwall, summer of 1986.

The Davenports, with their fast cars and glamorous clothes, living the dream in a breathtaking house overlooking the sea.

If only… thinks sixteen-year-old Tamsyn, her binoculars trained on the perfect family in their perfect home.

If only her life was as perfect as theirs.

If only Edie Davenport would be her friend.

If only she lived at The Cliff House…

What does TWG think?

There is one thing being asked to kick off a blog tour full stop, but then there is another thing being asked to kick off the blog tour for an author you admire not only for her literary skills, but also for her presence, views and the way that she has her tea. Yes, I am being serious. You can tell a lot about a person by the way they drink their tea, and let me tell you now, Amanda Jennings is my type of person – it’s definitely a bonus that she can write exceptionally well, too ;).

The cover of ‘The Cliff House’ is one of the most relaxing yet highly intriguing covers I have seen for a while. It was  pretty clear before I read the book that there was a lot more to the story that meets the eye, and boy it wasn’t wrong!

Usually I lean more towards storylines which send a rocket up your youknowwhat almost straight away, but the fact that the pace of ‘The Cliff House’ was slow, meant that the vibe came across a lot more haunted due to the authors incredible talent of creating vivid imagery in her readers minds. I genuinely think that had the pace been fast, the storyline wouldn’t have worked as well as it did, and I don’t think I would have reacted the way that I did. It wasn’t that the story was creepy, because it wasn’t. I found it to be more of an intense, haunted and mesmerising type of read, which seemed to capture all of my senses and hold them hostage until the very last page.

I don’t want to go into too much detail about the book as that wouldn’t be fair on the readers or the author, however, there were certain elements of the book which I was able to relate to unexpectedly. The main one which made me sit up and take notice was the fact that the main character, Tamsyn, had lost her father. I found the way in which Tamsyn reacted to the aftermath of her father’s death such a realistic portrayal of grief, especially where a parent is involved. It wasn’t a case of her father passing away and she just got on with it and forgot about it as she was young (kudos if you can do that, but kudos if you can’t, obviously!), instead her grief came out in her personality and the way that she lived her life. It was quite emotional to read, yet it hit open rather drastically.

As for the rest of the storyline, I actually can’t find anything that I disliked about it. Every page flowed with the previous one and the next, taking me under its wing by allowing me to lose myself in the spirited and charismatic storyline as though I was one of the characters myself.

‘The Cliff House’ isn’t just about beautiful views and a house you wish you could live in, no. It’s dark, compelling, addictive, beautiful, and utterly, utterly breathtaking. It’s books like this which make me feel exceptionally proud to be an avid reader, because if I wasn’t, I would be missing out on a diamond in the rough, cut above the rest, gem of a read. ‘The Cliff House’ really is one of my most favourite books of all time. How can it not be?

‘The Cliff House’ will be published on the 17th May but can be pre-ordered now from Amazon

Cottage on Lily Pond Lane Cover Reveal
It’s c-c-c-c-cover reveal time!!! I am delighted to be helping Emily Harvale reveal the cover of her upcoming novel, ‘The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane’ Part One, courtesy of RaRaResources!

It’s prettyyyyyy!!!!

Lily Pond Lane FOR RACHEL
New Beginnings

Mia Ward is amazed to be told she has inherited her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda.

She’s even more astonished to discover she’ll only inherit the place if she actually lives there for one year. Mia’s a city girl at heart, not to mention she’s afraid of water, so the fact the cottage backs on to a sandy beach, is not, in her opinion, a bonus.
But Mia’s struggling to pay her rent since being fired for inappropriate behaviour at the office party, and her boyfriend’s also dumped her. When her best friend, Ella and Ella’s brother, Garrick offer to help her move and settle in, Mia decides to see this as a new beginning.

It may also be the start of an exciting adventure because now Mia wants to know just who, exactly, was great-aunt Matilda. And she’s determined to find out. But it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to make sure Mia doesn’t stay in Little Pondale….

‘The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane’ will be published on the 10th May and you can preorder your copy now from Amazon!
