The Pretender by Katie Ward @KatieWWriter @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Saturday all!

Welcome to my stop on this enchanting blog tour, I’m thrilled to share my review with you today! Thanks so much to Rachel for my invitation and to Katie Ward for her delightful story!👑

The PretenderThe Pretender

France 2000: Two babies are born on the same day just two hours apart – but to very different lives. Isabella is a Princess and heir to the French throne, while Sophia is born into a life of poverty and abuse at the hands of her father. At the age of 18, Sophia runs away from home. That same night, Isabella is also fleeing from the burden of her royal life when she finds Sophia slumped at the palace gates. Amazed by how alike they look, Isabella proposes a daring plot – to exchange their lives for one week. 
‘The Pretender’ is an emotionally intense and compelling story of friendship, love and the strange power of destiny.

My Thoughts

This was a fun fluffy fairytale with a positive message… based on the fairytale “The Prince and The Popper”…. now I am not very familiar with this fairytale other than a vague recollection of there being a Disney movie with Mickey Mouse being the prince and the popper… it is the classic switching of identities, but in this case one of the culprits is a royal…. and as we have all been told before “the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence.“

Sophia has returned home after attending school, she lives on the wrong side of the tracks… with a shaky family life she is hoping to make amends…. when that does not happen and her father kicks her out she finds herself at the gates to the Royal Palace…. Isabella is a princess but tired of all the restrictions and responsibilities this has put on her life… so when she runs across Sophia and sees how similar they look she hatches a plan… The girls will switch identities for a week…

What I loved about this is how committed both girls were to throwing themselves into the others life… they both definitely had some eye-opening and unexpected experiences…. as they say it is hard to judge another person‘s life until you have walked in their shoes, and Isabella and Sophia got a chance to do this…. I adored the friendship that developed between these girls…. I also appreciated that this was a book filled with lessons especially the fact that your actions have consequences….

This was an enchanting story that leaned a little more towards young adult then new adult… it was a clean red not even sure if it would get a PG rating? Absolutely recommend to readers of all ages who believe in fairytales and happily ever after’s!

Author Bio

Katie Ward always knew she wanted to write for a living. However, she was told by her careers advisor that “it might be more appropriate for you to work in a shop”. When Katie didn’t get the grades she needed to get into college, she negotiated a three month trial. After successfully completing the course she secured a place at her first choice university to study Journalism.

After realising she wanted to be an author, Katie moved to Dublin where she worked her way up from receptionist to Executive Assistant at Merrill Lynch. Katie continued to write in her spare time, submitting her short story into the “Do the Write Thing” competition being run by Irish TV show ‘Seoige and O’Shea’. This story was originally written when Katie was 14 after she was inspired by an article in her favourite teen magazine. Katie was the only non-Irish author selected to have her story published in an anthology of the same name which reached 19 in the Irish Best sellers List. Katie was also shortlisted for a competition judged by MAN Booker Prize winning author Roddy Doyle which was run by Metro Eireann newspaper.

Katie currently lives in Devon with her cat (aka ‘Her Royal Fluffiness’) where she sings in a community choir and has recently taken up Archery. Katie’s favourite author has been Roald Dahl since she was a child as she loves the dark edge he brings to his books. On the flip side though, Katie loves Disney, magic, unicorns and a good rom com film at the cinema with her friends.

Josie James and the Teardrops of Summer by Lily Mae Walters @LilyMaeWalters @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy hump day all!

Something a little different today for you all I read and reviewed a MG Fantasy and thoroughly enjoyed it! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to this tour and to Lily Mae Walters for her charming story💛

Josie James and the Teardrops of Summer Blog TourJosie James is an ordinary 13 year old until something extraordinary happens during her summer holidays.

Whist staying at her Great Grandmother’s cottage in the country she finds herself swept into the cursed world of Suncroft where it is perpetual winter.

Her new friends believe she could be the Chosen One who it is foretold will lift the curse, but there are more pressing matters.

The Teardrops of Summer – magical crystals that render the owner immortal – have been stolen.  Along with her telepathic husky-dog Protector Asher and her new friends, Josie must race to find the Teardrops and prevent catastrophe for their world.

My Thoughts

This was a fun magical MG Fantasy book! I am neither a middle greater or a huge fan of the fantasy genre, but I found this a very enjoyable read… filled with all the magic and enthusiasm that I think would draw a child between the ages of 8-12 in…. heck it drew me in! and if my kids were 10 years younger I would have absolutely read this with them… it is books like this that turn kids into readers!

Josie is a charming, brave, and empathetic enthusiastic girl… loved her and if I were a girl of 12 I would want to be her! The world building in this book was imaginative and interesting, but very easy to understand… perhaps I should keep my fantasy reads to the MG level… loved the mystery and the message… I found this to be an extremely compelling Red and I think the target audience for this book will absolutely love it! Also like the fact that there are quite a few more books in the series with Josie aging a year with every book, curious to eventually meet 18-year-old Josie!

I Give You My Heart by SarahJane Ford @sjfordauthor @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Saturday book lovers!

Excited to share with you today my review of this beautiful and emotional book! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour and to SarahJane Ford for her beautiful words💔💗💞

I Give You My Heart

I Give You My Heart

𝗔 𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗱𝗶𝗮𝗴𝗻𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘀. 𝗔 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲𝘀𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘀𝗮𝗰𝗿𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗲. 𝗔 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗹𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝘄𝗿𝗶𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗿𝘁.

Alice Richards looked forward to watching the seeds of love she and her husband planted bloom and grow well into their old age. But her plans for the future shrivel up and die when she learns she has an inoperable brain tumour.

Determined that she won’t die in vain, she decides to become an organ donor. With a few precious months left, Alice begins documenting her fairytale romance—from their first meeting to the children they dreamed of having. She’ll pass on every detail to her heart’s next owner… along with careful instructions to send her husband reminders of her undying love. Before her time runs out, Alice must find the perfect candidate to guide her husband through unimaginable grief and hold the memory of their love in her heart.

I Give You My Heart is an emotional romantic fiction novel with an uplifting message. If you like strong-willed women, undying love stories, and honest portrayals of coping with a terminal illness, then you’ll love SarahJane Ford’s heart-warming epic.

An unmissable love story full of warmth, beauty and with a huge, beating heart. Perfect for fans of Cecilia Ahern’s ‘P.S. I Love You’ and Jojo Moyes’ ‘Me Before You’.

My Thoughts

Beautiful! Heartwrenching! Hopeful!

Do not read this book without a huge box of Kleenex nearby! This book doesn’t evoke just settle tears running down the face… no, it evokes that ugly cry you know that makes your nose run! From the blurb you know this book will touch on some pretty emotional subjects, but the execution is simply beautiful… it is quite amazing this is a debut because it was just so well crafted from beginning to end…

Alice and Alex have a fairytale relationship, unfortunately they won’t get to live happily ever after… Alice is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and rather than wallowing in self-pity… she takes it upon herself to ensure that the love of her life will be OK without her…. Alice was such a remarkable character, strong-willed, selfless, caring, someone you would want to be friends with….Determined to make something positive out of her death she is determined to donate 22 organs, with her heart being the most precious out of these…. her plan for her heart is to give it to somebody who is very deserving someone who will help her husband remember and move on…. I have to admit I did think to myself I’m not sure if I could take on such responsibility…. Alice was going to leave some pretty big shoes to fill never mind her heart! And her instruction manual was a bit well… specific and bossy….

We also got a look into the beautiful love story of Alice and Alex… how they met to present day…. their story was quite epic… the kind of love we all dream of when we are little girls, that some of us are lucky enough to find…

This is such a beautiful book filled with so much heart and hope… absolutely recommend when you need a little dose of reality… seriously, if Alice could find a bit of a Brightside in the dark, then so can we all!

A Wedding in Cornwall by Laura Briggs @PaperDollWrites @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Thursday book lovers!

Thrilled to be on the blog tour for this delightful compilation of wonderful stories! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Laura Briggs for her enchanting words💛

A Wedding in Cornwall

A Wedding in Cornwall (Books 7—12)

The last six novellas in the UK bestselling series A WEDDING IN CORNWALL are now available in one collection! Join American event planner Julianne in her final set of adventures ‘across the pond’ in beautiful Cornwall. From celebrity sightings to a local talent show, from a charming village fete to a secret Cornish garden, there’s never a dull moment for Julianne and her Poldark-esque true love Matthew in the quaint village of Ceffylgwyn.

This collection contains A Romance in Cornwall, A Star in Cornwall, A Sewing Circle in Cornwall, A Talent Show in Cornwall, An American in Cornwall, and A Garden in Cornwall. Exclusive bonus materials include a sneak peek of the author’s all-new 2019 Cornish romance series!

My Thoughts

Charming! Delightful! Enchanting!

This is a compilation of the last six novellas in the A WEDDING IN CORNWALL series… now full disclosure I have not read every novella as of yet, but I am absolutely planning on it! In the lead up to the blog tour I read a few from the first half of the series as well as a view from this half… now Novellas are tough to review generally because they’re well… short… so I thought rather them rehash each individual novella I’d give you my overall impression…

First of all I LOVE this little Cornish town! With a name I had to triple check that I spelled correctly, Cheffylgwyn…. is that right? Filled with quirky and enthusiastic characters that you would love to get to know… each story is a little different… however many characters make an appearance in all the books, with the main characters being Julianne and Mathew…. I really liked these two from the first book going forward, and truly was a little disappointed when they didn’t have that big of a part in some of the subsequent books…. this series kind of reminded me of a much loved television show, with different guests in each episode… we had celebrities, romance authors, bake off’s, and so much more….

These Novellas are a perfect afternoon read when you want a little getaway… The writing is so smooth and easy, and the pacing is perfect… what more can you ask for? Wonderful riding, interesting storyline, fabulous characters, and an absolutely charming setting! Not exactly sure where Cornwall is in England, but every book I read that takes place there is divine! Absolutely recommend for a quick little timeout from reality!

A Match Made in Heaven? by Sun Chara @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday!

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for this Divine Romance! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation!💕

A Match Made In Heaven

Who ‘s meddling with happily ever after?

The Wedding: it’s a set up.
The Break-up: it’s a con.
The Reconciliation: it’s a trap.

When high society bride, Samantha Carroll, devises an ingenious plan to ditch her meddling matchmaking mamma’s groom of choice, the banker’s son, instead of the ordinary Irish guy Johnny Belen she’s pining for, all pandemonium breaks loose.

In the meantime, Johnny has devised his own plan to thwart monster-mamma-in-law’s matchmaking for the wedding of the season, but it is soon clear that Sam is not the type of girl who can be scooped up by just any man…

My Thoughts

This was a contemporary romance with some divine intervention… Samantha and Johnny get married in order to stop Samantha‘s mothers meddling…. but could this couple‘s marriage of convenience turn into their happily ever after?

There is a lot of humor in this book, I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times… Samantha really was not the most likable characters, in fact I’m not sure if she deserved Johnny… The two of them were quite frustrating throughout most of the book their inability to communicate with each other and the secrets they kept from one another were somewhat mind-boggling…. admittedly the flow to this book was sometimes a bit disjointed, but the humor even that out… I just kind of had to “go with the flow!“

A fun romance with a bit of a different twist….

Evie’s Little Black Book by Hannah Pearl @HannahPearl_1 @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Sunday book friends!

Excited to share with you my review for this enchanting book of self discovery! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour and to Hannah Pearl for her wonderful words💛

Evies Little Black Book

Is hunting down every man you’ve kissed the answer to finding Mr Right?


When Evie is invited to the wedding of the guy she’d fancied throughout her teens, it’s the final straw. What’s wrong with her and why can’t she keep a man? 

In between consoling herself with ice cream and chocolate, and sobbing her heart out to her cousin Chamaine, Evie has a brainwave – and it all centres around her ‘little black book’ (well, more floral patterned notebook really) – which contains the details of every man she’s ever kissed or dated. Perhaps the cure for her disastrous love life has been nestled within its pages all along … 


Does Evie’s little black book really hold the answers, or will she learn that exes are exes for a reason? 

My Thoughts

4 Delightful Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Can you imagine hunting down every boy you ever kissed or crushed on? To try to figure out what went wrong? Well after receiving a wedding invitation to an excrushes wedding evie does just that…. completely blindsided and confounded by her ex getting married before her Evie wants to find out what’s wrong with her?“ A fun book filled with laughs, romance, and self discovery…

Evie was such a fun and likable character who I also found tremendously relatable…. her best friend pointed out to her that it wasn’t her, she just had bad taste in men, something I completely understand…. but Evie was not completely convinced so she busted out her little black book, that was actually more floral them black and contacted the men of her past… along the way she meets jake as well as his sister and adorable niece, and a wonderful friendship develops…. loved the relationship between Evie and Jake especially because it began with such a strong friendship…. also Jake went along with the journey of discovery, that included some bumps and surprises…

This was such a quick enjoyable read filled with so much hope… I could absolutely see this book as a movie, in fact it reminded me of a few movies with a bit of a different angle…. recommend to those of you who enjoy a book of self discovery filled with some romance and laughs…

Angelica Stone by Susi Osborne @rararesources #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy September Book lovers!

Today I am sharing my review with you for this engrossing book! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour!💛

Angelica Stone

Following years of sexual abuse, Angelica is brought up in care. As a teenager she absconds, living on the streets, before eventually being forced into prostitution to survive. She learns to rely solely on herself and is reluctant to allow anyone to get close to her, until she forms an unlikely bond with Lola. In contrast, Lola is from what appears to be a happy middle-class background – but all is not what it seems…

Slowly, as their friendship grows, cracks start to appear in Lola’s life, and a series of events leave her on the verge of ruin. Can these women break the cycle of their lives? Or will they succumb to the path laid out before them? Angelica Stone is an emotional rollercoaster of laughter and tears as the women embark on a journey of self-discovery, with the support of one another.

My Thoughts

This was a dark and disturbing book that took a real and raw look at life…. admittedly the cover and the blurb did not prepare me for such a dark look at life, but once I switched gears I was fully engrossed…. this is a story about Angelica, but she is really a secondary character the main focus is on Lola… The girls met at work and slowly and awkwardly started a friendship….

This book really was a testament to the Power of friendship… these two girls even though they were from very different backgrounds really were such a blessing and support to one another…. because even though Lola’s life appears picture perfect, she has struggles of her own…. you don’t need to grow up on the streets to have to deal with your past and family issues…. there are many parts of this book that I found quite disturbing, however I don’t believe any thing was gratuitous, just necessary…. I feel as though this review is a bit vague, however I really don’t want to give any of the plot away…. and I’m struggling a bit as to how I really feel about this book…. can’t say that I enjoyed it, but I’m glad I read it… let me clarify, this is not the kind of book that you “enjoy”…. it is the kind of book that consumes your mind and makes you think, and takes you out of your comfort zone for a while…

This was an engrossing story with very well develop characters and a deep plotline… absolutely recommend, but keep the Kleenex close!

The Good Sister by Rachael Stewart @rararesources @rach_b52 #BookReview #Giveaway

Happy Tuesday bookworms!

Delighted to share with you today my review for this entertaining love story! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour and to Rachel Stewart for her charming story💛

The Good Sister - With Cover

HE WASN’T HERS TO LOVE … BUT HER HEART DOESN’T CARE…

When Isla Evans agrees to switch lives with her rising star of a twin for three weeks, she has no idea the move will thrust her into the same bed as her teenage celebrity heartthrob, Bradley King. Trapped there at her sister’s request, she gives her desire free reign and finds herself falling hard and fast.

And she’s not alone. 

Bradley wants a wife to tick all the boxes, save for one: love. It’s not part of the deal, never was, never will be. But when he returns home early to find his hopeful-fiancée behaving all sorts of different, he likes it. A lot. Suddenly, he wants a real marriage, with all the trimmings, and he will stop at nothing until he gets it.

But this Hollywood HEA faces one big hurdle—she’s not who he thinks she is…

My Thoughts

4 Steamy Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a sweet steamy story that I devoured in an afternoon… this is a book about the ultimate sister swap…. would you know if your significant other switched places with their sibling? What if they looked exactly alike? The premise of the story was slightly implausible, but it sure was a lot of fun!

Isla switches places with her superstar sister for three weeks…. just to find out she will be living with her teenage crush… Bradley comes home to find that his fiancée has changed… and for the better she is a girl he could possibly fall for…. The problem? This was not part of the deal…. he was not supposed to fall in love!

This story was so entertaining to read… both Isla and Bradley were likable characters and you really wanted that happily ever after for them! The chemistry between them was instantaneous, especially given the circumstances… they absolutely sizzled together…. but throughout I was just waiting for that other shoe to drop… what happens when the person you love is not who they say they are? How will Bradley react to this betrayal? Will this couple get their HEA? And what about sister??? Well you will need to read this to find out!

Recommend for those of you that enjoy a fun steamy love story…
