Happy Valentine’s Day!💘

I have the perfect Valentines review for you with this lovely love story full of heart and humor! Big thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Belinda Missen for her lovely words!💗

An Impossible Thing Called Love

Don’t miss the new delightfully uplifting book from the author of A Recipe for Disaster!

A second chance at love…

When globe-trotting Emmy first fell for first-aider William on a freezing New Year’s Eve, she really believed that their love would go the distance.

But when she returns to Australia, her letters start to go unanswered and her emails bounce back unread, Emmy decides it’s time to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and start afresh in London.

So she’s shocked when William walks in on her very first day at her new job! Even worse, he’s hotter than ever. But why did he disappear for so long? What has he been hiding? And could this really be their second chance at falling in love…?

Perfect for fans of Carole Mathews, Mhairi McFarlane and Carrie Hope Fletcher.

My Thoughts

A sweet swoon worthy second chance romance perfect for Valentine’s Day 💘

Belinda Missen dreams up romantic stories that are bursting with everything I love about the genre… wonderful characters, witty dialogue, beautiful settings, strong friendships, and humor… it is the month of love and this is the perfect story to sweep you off your feet and take you away for a few hours…

Emmy and Will meet while on vacation… their connection is strong, but can it withstand the test of thousands of Miles? At first they remain in contact email, text, all the means of communication we have available to us today… but when communication stops Emmy is heartbroken… some Time goes by and she finds herself moving to London for a new job… where…. guess who she runs into? SO will Emmy and Will get a second chance at love?

such a fun flirty feel good story filled with humor and heart… Emmy and Will are both very likable, quite adorable together, and I really enjoyed the banter between them… this is the type of story that makes you want to believe in love and happily ever after…

An enchanting and engaging romance that will delight anyone who loves the love! Recommend!

Russian Roulette by Keith Nixon @knntom @BOTBSPublicity #bookreview

Happy Day of love!

Excited to share with you my review for this book perfect for your Valentine’s reading! (Or maybe not) well I suppose it all depends on how you feel about love and hearts and all that good stuff! This is a dark and gritty story that will appeal to your darker side! Many thanks to Sarah for my invitation to the tour!🖤

My Thoughts

A dark gritty crime thriller full of quirky characters!

This is the first book in the Constantine series… this book is just shy of 200 pages, but let me tell you there is a lot packed into this little book! Danger deceit and a dominatrix just to name a few… The story might be a little gritty but the characters are so quirky, it really made for a wonderful balance…

Constantine is XKGB and he just can’t seem to quell The investigator in him… Constantine also seems to surround himself with a cast of eccentric characters… Plastic Fantastic and Fat Gary just to name a few….

Had anyone told me I enjoy a story about a burly Russian and a dominatrix I would’ve told them they were crazy, and I would’ve been wrong! This book really caught me by surprise it was an engaging and captivating read with characters I truly adored! Recommend!

About the Book

A reluctant investigator, a sordid English seaside town, a criminal underbelly.

Trouble has a habit of seeking out Konstantin, whether he wants it or not. Starting from the moment he arrives in the seedy seaside town of Margate where he’s supposed to be in hiding from his ex-employers. All Konstantin wants is to keep his head down and be left alone. But it’s not to be. People have their problems and Konstantin can’t help but get involved.

Konstantin has to overcome the drug dealer, the loan shark and a Liverpudlian gangster. Then there’s the so-called good guys, the councilors and lawyers who are worse than the criminals. Enter Fidelity Brown, aka Plastic Fantastic, a dominatrix who has her own mélange of secrets and lies, and nightclub owner Ken who’s connected to all the wrong people. Both help Konstantin solve the cases dropped on his doorstep.

Cue deception, murder, mayhem as the Russian settles into his new life. Margate will never be the same again. And neither will Konstantin…

Meet the enigmatic Konstantin, a man with a dark history and darker future in the start of a unique crime thriller series laced with a healthy dose of black humour. Pick up Russian Roulette to find out what all the fuss is about.

Gap Years by Dave Holwill @daveholwill @rararesources #bookreview #gapyears

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

We are supposed to have a huge rainstorm tomorrow in Southern California, they are referring to it as an atmospheric river, not sure what that is, but I can let you know tomorrow! It is a perfect excuse to stay in all day and make a day of reading and blogging out of it, Californians cannot drive in the rain! alright enough about that! Excited to share with you my review for this little gem! A huge thank you to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and two Dave Holwill for his wise words!😃

Gap Years

19 year old Sean hasn’t seen his father since he was twelve. His mother has never really explained why. An argument with her leads to his moving to the other side of the country.

Martin, his father, has his life thrown into turmoil when the son he hasn’t seen in nearly eight years strolls back into his life immediately killing his dog and hospitalising his step-daughter.

The one thing they have in common is the friendship of a girl called Rhiannon.

Over the course of one summer Sean experiences sexual awakenings from all angles, discovers the fleeting nature of friendship and learns to cope with rejection.

Martin, meanwhile, struggles to reconnect with Sean while trying to delicately turn down the increasingly inappropriate advances of a girl he sees as a surrogate daughter and keep a struggling marriage alive.

Gap Years is an exploration of what it means to be a man in the 21st Century seen from two very different perspectives – neatly hidden inside a funny story about bicycles, guitars and unrequited love.

My Thoughts

An honest and entertaining look at a dysfunctional father/son relationship.

Dave Holwill’s previous book The “The Craftroom” was full of dark humor and quirky characters… I was expecting the same thing with this book, but while this book still has quite a bit of humor it is a little more serious in tone… I was surprised and I’d have to say pleasantly so….

this story is about a father and son who have been estranged for over eight years trying to find their way back to one another…Shauns mother Tonya did what she could to keep Sean away from his father… but when they have a huge disagreement about Sean going to University, Sean up and leaves and goes to live with his father… Martin has not seen his son in over eight years, he’s not quite sure how to repair this relationship… he is remarried to Allison and has a lovely daughter he adores with all his heart…. Will father and son ever find a bond between them?

The story was told from both Martin and Sean’s perspectives… I found this incredibly impactful it really let you see both sides of the story throughout the book… The book starts off with a crash quite literally… there was also a girl who almost put a permanent wedge between father and son… she really was a despicable character, super manipulative, I imagine we were meant to dislike her? I did however really like all the rest of the characters I liked Sean and I really wanted him to find his way in the world, I liked Martin and his new wife Allison, they really did have a very strong relationship…

A well-crafted story about discovering who you are and where you belong and where you’re headed to next, recommend!

Author Bio –

Dave Holwill was born in Guildford in 1977 and quickly decided that he preferred the Westcountry – moving to Devon in 1983 (with some input from his parents).
After an expensive (and possibly wasted) education there, he has worked variously as a postman, a framer, and a print department manager (though if you are the only person in the department then can you really be called a manager?) all whilst continuing to play in every kind of band imaginable on most instruments you can think of.
Gap Years is his third novel – following on the heels of Weekend Rockstars and The Craft Room, and he is currently working on the fourth (a folk horror set in his native mid-Devon) and a sequel to Weekend Rockstars.
