Happy Sunday bibliophiles!

Delighted to share with you today my review for this dazzling and festive holiday Red!🎄

Snowy Nights at the Lonely Hearts Hotel by Karen King

My Thoughts

A dazzling heartwarming story full of comfort and joy!

This was a fantastical festive story that made me smile from first page to last…. A wonderful Christmas book is like the star on top of the Christmas tree; it just makes the season brighter…. This truly is a perfect Christmas book for those of us that could read a Christmas book in the middle of July! You know who you are! This book thoroughly embraces the Christmas spirit, not a good book for a Grinch! Although it would probably make your heart grow two sizes larger!

Saffy works hard and parties harder, or so everyone thinks…. when her sister calls pleading with her to host her annual Christmas single parent party, Saffy reluctantly agrees… not necessarily the type of party she had planned to bring her Christmas cheer…. with the help of her sisters handsome single neighbor Logan and his adorable daughter Chloe, Saffy is determined to make this party a success! Festive decorating, a beautiful Christmas tree, holiday perfection…. and snow, snow, and more snow….

This book was packed full of delightful characters….Saffy was such a fun character with a big heart, Logan was just a good guy, and Chloe was adorable quite often stealing the scene!Saffy’s neighbors Robbie and Dunkin added some humor and drama to this fantastic story…. i became so invested in the lives of these characters throughout this book, I sure am hoping there is a follow up….

A wonderful holiday Reid that will leave you feeling merry and bright… absolutely recommend to anyone who enjoys a festive story filled with wonderful characters that will leave you feeling warm all over…

*** many thanks to Bookouture for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

Snowy rooftops, mulled wine, and a hot single dad. Not the Christmas Saffy wished for… but maybe the one she needs? 

Twenty-nine-year-old Saffron Baxterknew her fun holiday plans didn’t stand a chance the moment her sister called to say she was stuck abroad with no hope of being home before Christmas. Saffy would just have to abandon thoughts of wild festive parties in the city and head down to remote Cornwall. 

Because every year her sister hosts a huge Christmas meal for all the single parents in her village. And Saffy knows it’d break her heart to let them down. 

Arriving as snow starts to fall over the thatched cottages of the little harbour town of Port Breok, she meets Logan – the tall, fair-haired, blue-eyed, devoted single dad who lives over the road, with his adorable daughter Chloe. At first she thinks he might help her make Christmas Day extra-memorable, but he just seems convinced she’ll never manage – that she’s just a party girl who doesn’t care about family, or anyone’s feelings. Maybe he’s right. After all – she doesn’t want to settle down, she’s only there for a few days… But she’s still determined to do her sister proud with gorgeous decorations, the most beautiful real tree – complete with extra twinkly lights, and delicious mince pies. To make it a Christmas everyone will remember, especially little Chloe. Even if, when the mistletoe comes down, she knows she’ll probably never see Logan again… 

The perfect festive romance novel, ideal for fans of Nora Roberts, Jenny Hale and Debbie Macomber. 

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!🎄 berit❄️✨

The Rigel Affair by L M Hedrick @lmhedrick @rararesources #coverreveal

The Rigel Affair

Abandoned by his part-Cherokee Ma, Charlie Kincaid escapes servitude with his uncle. He jumps a boxcar, accompanied by his schoolmate Roxy, who is escaping troubles of her own. Charlie becomes a US Navy Diver.

Mattie Blanc is from a genteel New Zealand family. But when her brother’s friend persuades her to take a ride, it all goes horribly wrong. Desperate, she flees her family’s stifling expectations for a new life in Auckland.

After the 1941 Pearl Harbor attack, Charlie sets sail for Auckland aboard the USS Rigel. And there she is, the girl of his dreams. Mattie is everything that Roxy isn’t—sophisticated, tender, and patient. But the war intervenes… Rigel embarks for the Pacific war zones.

Charlie’s letters are sporadic. Mattie is tormented by doubts; did he truly love her, or was it only a dream?

The Rigel Affair produces a rip-roaring wartime romance and chilling danger unknown to most.
