Come Back to Me by Daniela Sacerdoti @DaniSacerdoti @headlinepg @annecater #bookreview #conebacktome

Happy Tuesday book lovers!

Today I have a review for this beautiful book about love with a dash of magic! Thank you so much Anne for my invitation to this tour!🌼

My Thoughts

Enchanting. Haunting. Magical.

Daniela Sacerdoti has written a lyrical story that will completely captivate you. Her words had such a musical quality to them. This is a story that gets into your heart, your bones, your soul. I had no idea what to expect when I picked this book up, but it exceeded all my expectations. This is the third book in the Seal Island series, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. And can I just say I was thoroughly bummed out when I found out this is a fictitious location?

Beautifully told the story has an element of magic to it that will require you to suspend belief a bit. Three characters find themselves on Seal Island, all of them dealing with their own guilt and grief. Mathew has recently been released from jail, convicted of manslaughter. He is riddled with guilt for causing the car accident that killed his wife. Grace has taken a job as a doctor on the island, she is single, childless, and convinced that it is too late for her to find love. Grace and Matt are neighbors on the island and forge a friendship. I think they both saw a kindred spirit in their grief. The third character in this book is Rose. Rose is in a coma and reliving events that led up to the accident that put her in a coma. Rose had a complicated relationship with her brother who had some anger management issues that impacted Rose’s life and her family. Now as intriguing as I found Rose’s story I had no idea how it fit into the rest of this book. I knew the story threads connected I just didn’t know how, but all is tied up in a beautiful bow at the end of the book.

The book is full of emotion and vivid language that fully immerses you in these characters lives. The grief was palpable, but the hope was imminent. I really loved all these characters but I think I connected to grace the most I really felt for her and her desire to be loved. This book ended perfectly and left me with such a warm feeling in my heart. I noticed that this is not publishing in the US, and I think that needs to be remedied! This is a well told story that will appeal to people on both sides of the pond!

About the Book

Three separate lives. Three broken hearts.

Haunted by his wife’s death, Matt arrives on Seal Island determined to be alone and unable to escape his grief. 

In the island’s hospital, a young woman named Rose lies in a coma, trapped by the memories of events leading up to her accident. 

Grace, the island’s doctor, is at the heart of the community. Only she knows how much she regrets turning down the chance of love and a family years ago.

For these three people hope seems gone. 

But life is about to offer an unexpected new beginning…

How (Not) to Date a Prince by Zoe May @zoe_writes @rararesources #bookreview #hownottodateaprince

Happy Tuesday all!

Delighted to share with you today this charming story guaranteed to make you giggle! Thanks Rachel for my invitation to the tour👑

How (Not) To Date A Prince

Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?

After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.

And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!

But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?

My Thoughts

And they all lived happily ever after…

A lighthearted uplifting story that will make you smile! Zoe May Will sweep you up in the fairytale with her engaging storytelling. This book came out last year during the build up to the royal wedding, so how appropriate that I read it the day that the little prince was born.

Sam does not believe in love, she does not believe in the fairytale, and the last thing she wants to do is report on the royal wedding. But her boss is of a different mind and Sam soon finds herself thrust into the middle of all the hoopla. She also finds herself continually running into the same handsome guy, but Sam has no room for love in her life.

This book was so much fun and I loved how perfectly paced the romance was. Sam and Anders spend time really getting to know one another, and bit by bit Sam lets down her guard.But then she is hit buy one BIG secret. Will the blooming Romance be able to recover? A lovely little escape that will make you giggle and swoon.
