Fox Halt Farm by Celia Moore @CeliaMooreBooks @rararesources #bookreview #giveaway #foxhallfarm

Happy Humpday book lovers!

Excited to share with you today my review for this delightful story! A huge thank you to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and to Celia for her charming story!🐮

Fox Halt Farm

Opening on a cliff edge, Billy finds herself alone and betrayed. She believes everyone and everything she loves is threatened. Richard’s world is aglow with wealth, love and unswerving family loyalty but then his perfect life crosses Billy’s. He could save Billy, her beloved dairy cows and Fox Halt Farm but this young woman isn’t in the mood to be rescued.

Nothing will stay the same. Should they trust each other? Will their secrets tear their lives apart?

Fox Halt Farm is hard to put down. The story cracks along and you are caught up in Celia Moore’s vivid storytelling from the start.  If you love novels by Jill Mansell, Fiona Valpy, Lucinda Riley, Maeve Binchy and Danielle Steel you will love this novel too!

My Thoughts

A well told story packed with heartbreak and hope!

This was A charming start to a trilogy. The story spans several decades and really brings the setting and characters to life. Celia Moore’s writing is vivid and engaging. This is a story that draws you in and doesn’t let go until the final page.

Billy is a woman on the brink of despair. She feels abandoned, betrayed, and lost. She finds her refuge in Fox Halt farm. Richard is a wealthy man willing to help out the reluctant Billy. In all honesty billy could get a bit tiring she really reveled in her suffering. Fortunately the colorful larger than life Saffi brought energy to the book and Billy herself. There is also a perfect villain, a character you will love to hate! This is a story best gone into without knowing much about the plot, that actually surprised me I was not anticipating so many twists and turns and misdirection.

This lovely book was a descriptive story that will sweep you up in its pages. A Book about family, love, betrayal, and secrets! Recommend!

Posted in Domestic Thriller

The liar’s Child by Carla Buckley @CarlaBuckley @randomhouse #bookreview #theliarschild #valentinebooks

Happy Tuesday book lovers!

Excited to share with you today my review for this intense domestic thriller that comes out today!🌷

My Thoughts

a vividly told domestic thriller packed with characters you won’t soon forget!

Carla Buckley is a master storyteller, this is my second book by her and they both have completely captivated me. This is a compelling domestic thriller with characters that just leap off the pages. The story is mesmerizing and taught with tension and emotion. You won’t be able to turn the pages fast enough, and you won’t want it to end.

Sarah reluctantly enters witness protection and finds herself on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In an apartment building named Paradise that is anything but. She spends her time working as a house cleaner and observing her neighbors. Soon she finds herself crossing paths with the two kids that live next-door to her, 12-year-old Cassie and five-year-old Boone. Sarah recognizes that Paradise is certainly no paradise for these kids. The walls are thin and she hears constant fighting between their parents. She also hears other rumors of the family’s recent tragedy. When a devastating hurricane hits and Sarah realizes the kids are on their own she makes a split second decision that will alter the course of all three of their lives.

The story is told from multiple perspectives allowing you to see the entire picture. The characters are extremely well fleshed out and the kids are perfectly portrayed for the ages they were. Cassie was surly, antagonistic, and had a huge chip on her shoulder. Boone was sweet, adorable, and utterly charming. He definitely pulled at my heartstrings as well as Sarah’s. Sarah was strong, complex, and a little mysterious. The three of them made quite the team, and I truly cherished every minute I got to spend with them. I read another review that said this was an unconventional love story and I’d have to say that is a perfect way to describe this book. Three unlikely people who found the best in one another in the midst of tragedy. And can I just say the ending to this book was simple perfection!

A beautifully told story that is simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting. A domestic thriller with a splash of mystery. Absolutely recommend!

*** A huge thank you to Random House Valentine for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

In this intense and intimate family portrait that moves at a thriller’s pace, a troubled woman faces a gripping moral dilemma after rescuing two abandoned children from a hurricane. 
On the outskirts of North Carolina’s Outer Banks sits the Paradise, an apartment complex where renters never stay long enough to call the place “home” – and neighbors are seldom neighborly. It’s ideal for Sara Lennox, who moved there to escape a complicated past – and even her name – and rebuild a new life for herself under the radar. But Sara cannot help but notice the family next door, especially 12-year-old Cassie and five-year-old Boon. She hears rumors and whispers of a recent tragedy slowly tearing them apart. 
When a raging storm threatens then slams the coastal community, Sara makes a quick, bold decision: Rescue Cassie and Boon from the storm and their broken home – without telling a soul. But this seemingly noble act is not without consequences. Some lethal. 
Carla Buckley crafts a richly rewarding psychological portrait, combining a heart-wrenching family drama with high-stakes suspense, as the lives of three characters intertwine in an unforgettable story of fury, fate – and redemption. 
“You should read The Liar’s Child by Carla Buckley because it’s a lovely and evocative story, and because it raises all kinds of questions about parents and children, secrets and safety. But be careful: This is a writer who knows how to break your heart.” (Carolyn Parkhurst, New York Times best-selling author of The Dogs of Babel and Lost and Found
