Happy hump day all!

You guys this book! It was SO wild! I picked it up at night and could not put it down until I was finished, I paid the price in the morning, but it was so worth it!

My Thoughts

K L Slater has once again robbed me of a night of sleep! I made the mistake of picking this up before bed and I just could not put it down. Twisted and addicting, I was completely hooked from the very first page. Darcy A widow and mother of two young boys is still struggling to find her footing. One day while at the park her youngest son has an asthma attack and his inhaler is not where it should be. Lucky for Darcy there is a doctor in the house. Handsome Dr. George Oliver is soon on the scene saving the day. Soon Darcy finds her self romantically involved with George, and before she knows it she has moved in to his beautiful home with him and his daughter. BUT Darcy has unresolved issues with her deceased husband Joel and his family, and George has some skeletons in the closet. What terrible thing did Joel do? And who the heck is Opal?

What a wild ride! miss Slater sucker punched me with the twists in this book! I was so convinced I knew what was going on, but NO! Darcy was such a loose cannon I didn’t know whether or not to trust her. To be honest I didn’t trust any of the characters in this book. They all seem to have some kind of agenda. Another well executed thriller from one of my favorite psychological thriller authors!

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

About the Book

‘I keep feeling like I’m being watched – dropping the boys off at school, choosing wine at the supermarket – but when I turn around there’s nobody there…’

When single mother Darcy’s son falls from a rope bridge at a local playground, life stands still. She clutches his small, limp body, frozen, until a pair of strong hands push her aside, and she watches as George, a local doctor, saves her son’s life.

George is a single parent too, and with his twinkling hazel eyes, easy charm, and lack of wedding band is almost too good to be true, but coffee becomes lunch, lunch becomes dinner, and soon they can’t go an evening without seeing each other. When he invites her to move into his beautiful home with its sprawling garden for her boys, Darcy doesn’t hesitate.

But as Darcy is settling in, she receives a bunch of flowers with a chilling message. George says they’re from an obsessed ex-girlfriend, Opal, and days later Opal turns up at Darcy’s son’s football match. She claims to have shocking information that could threaten George’s custody of his daughter.

Darcy doesn’t know who to trust, but she’s starting to suspect that, whatever the truth, she might have put her beloved boys into terrible danger … 

From the million-copy-bestselling author K.L. Slater this utterly gripping psychological thriller will make you gasp out loud as you race towards the unforgettable twist. If you loved The Girl on the Train and The Wife Between Us this book is for you.

Magic Under the Mistletoe by Lucy Coleman @rararesources #bookreview

Happy almost Thanksgiving!

Where in the world has the year gone? I am loving all the festive Christmas wreaths this year, but I’m still in denial that it is closing in on 2020! This was another fun festive story that put a big smile on my face!🎁

Magic Under the Mistletoe

Christmas and romance are in the air…

It’s December 23rd and while everyone else is rushing home for the holidays, workaholic Leesa Oliver is dreading switching on her out-of-office for the festive season. And it seems her equally driven boss, Cary Anderson, isn’t relishing spending Christmas at his family’s country estate either.

So together, they draft an unexpected Christmas contract: They’ll spend half of the holidays with each other’s families, pretending to be a couple. Leesa knows the insufferably good-looking Cary will make her Christmas more bearable, but what happens after the last of the mince pies have been eaten…?

Leesa signed off on a sensible business agreement, but somewhere, amongst the fairy lights and carols something seems to have changed… It seems there might just be some magic under the mistletoe this Christmas!

My Thoughts

Such a fun festive story! The fake romance trope is one of my absolute favorites! Lucy Coleman has put a bit of a new spin on it wrapped it up in Christmas paper and put a bow on top! Lessa and Cary are both workaholics. Working together on a project and almost cannot believe that they are going to be interrupted by Christmas. Neither of them are looking forward to going home for the holidays, but after a bit of a misunderstanding they decide to make a pact. The Santa Claus pat, both of them will accompany the other to their families and pretend to be a happy couple. Should be easy right? And it will get their families off their backs. I’m certain you all think you know where this is going, but I have to say the journey was a bit longer and more involved than I was anticipating. These are too complicated characters with some baggage who are convinced they do not want any romantic entanglements.

this book had all the feels and festive vibes you want from a Christmas romance. Lessa and Cary were good people who you really wanted the best for. Two people that were so perfect for one another, and neither of them could see it. The secondary characters were delightful especially Cary’s eccentric grandmother who happens to be a romance author. This is a definite must read for all Christmas romance lovers. The perfect blend of slow burn romance and holiday cheer!
