Unreasonable Doubts by Reyna Marder Gentin @reynagentin @suzyapbooktours #bookreview #unreasonabledoubts

Happy weekend all!

Hope you are all having a lovely day! I had a bit of a stomach bug this week and that has just thrown me off! Hoping to use this weekend to get all caught up on all the things I need to get caught up on! Thoroughly enjoyed this book it was the perfect blend of legal thriller and women’s fiction!⚖️

My Thoughts

Reyna Marder Gentin has constructed an intricate thought provoking story. The perfect mash up of a legal thriller and women’s fiction peppered with some romance. Have you ever thought how hard it would be to defend someone you thought was guilty? How about fighting for somebody you knew was innocent? And what happens when the lines get blurred and human emotion comes into play? Leanna is a defense attorney. Her boyfriend Jacob is working at a high power law firm where his colleagues see Leanna as a “do gooder“. When Leanna takes a case defending Danny Shay she begins to question everything.

Leanna was an intriguing and interesting character. We really were privy to her internal struggle as she tried to figure out what kind of life she wanted to live. The courtroom scenes in this book were fascinating and realistic. The romance was compelling and complicated. This is one intense story that will truly make you think.

About the Book

Jaded New York City Public Defender Liana Cohen would give anything to have one client in whom she can believe. Dozens of hardened criminals and repeat offenders have chipped away at her faith in both herself and the system. Her boyfriend Jakob’s high-powered law firm colleagues see her do-gooder job as a joke, which only adds to the increasing strain in their relationship.

Enter imprisoned felon Danny Shea, whose unforgivable crime would raise a moral conflict in an attorney at the height of her idealism—and that hasn’t been Liana in quite a while. But Danny’s astonishing blend of good looks, intelligence, and vulnerability intrigues Liana. Could he be the client she’s been longing for—the wrongly accused in need of a second chance? Is he innocent? As their attorney-client relationship transforms into something less than arm’s length, Liana is forced to confront fundamental questions of truth, faith, and love—and to decide who she wants to be.

Hattie’s Home For Broken Hearts byTilly Tennant @TillyTenWriter @bookouture #bookreview #hattieshomeforbrokenhearts

Happy Friday y’all!

Well this week went really fast! This was such a delightful story and I am so excited to share my review with you!🐐

My Thoughts

Tilly Tennant has crafted a lovely story filled with hope and heart. I never thought I would say these words but… I think I want a donkey. Hattie returns home from Paris to the sleepy little village of Gillypuddle (got to love that name). Her mother a retired lawyer and her father a retired doctor are both pushing her to finish her education, but that is not in Hattie’ss plans. There aren’t many employment opportunities in this small village so Hattie finds herself working at a donkey sanctuary. Her standoffish boss Jo is a puzzle to her. Seth the vet is intriguing and Owen the newspaperman well… the jury is still out on him. There is a lot of growth and change in the story. Hattie truly begins to find herself, her parents suffer a tragedy, and Jo has quite the transformation.

there was so much charm in the story, I mean just look at the cover. I loved this little village and all the residents. Hattie was a wonderful character and I loved how she really took to these donkeys. I also really enjoyed her friendship with Jo, she was not easily deterred. The romance was Sweet, and went in the direction I was hoping. Another delightful summer read to add to the TBR!

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

About the Book

Escape to the daisy-strewn windswept Dorset cliffs, to the donkey sanctuary at Sweet Briar Farm, where Hattie Rose is about to find, that in this world, the most unlikely opposites can sometimes attract …

Hattie was once thrilled to call the beautiful city of Paris her home. But when her heart is broken by her boyfriend and she loses her dream job, she bids farewell to the city of love and hurries home to Gillypuddle, a sleepy village on the Dorset coast. But as she returns home she finds her parents struggling to cope with a terrible family tragedy.

In a desperate search for a new start, Hattie takes a job at the donkey sanctuary nearby on Sweet Briar Farm where Jo, the taciturn owner, certainly loves her animals far more than humans. Hattie can’t help but fall in love with the donkeys (and the opportunity to get close to dreamy Canadian vet Seth) but Jo is harder to get to know and when she finds her boss sobbing in her sleep one stormy night, she knows that her new friend is hiding a dark secret. 

And when handsome newspaper reporter Owen does some digging into Jo’s past he finds something that connects her to Hattie on a whole new level. Can Hattie trust what Owen says, especially when he seems intent on standing in the way of her blossoming romance with Seth? And can Hattie help Jo to start healing and the donkeys of Sweet Briar Farm?

A beautiful story that will melt the hardest of hearts. If you love Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond and Josie Silver you will be enchanted by this life-affirming read that reminds you that home is wherever the people you love are. 

 

About Tilly Tennant

Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing. She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.

Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. In 2016 she signed to the hugely successful Bookouture and is currently working on her next Tilly Tennant novel. She also writes as Sharon Sant, where she explores the darker side of life, and Poppy Galbraith, where things get a little crazier.
