Thread of Hope by Rachel Bonner @racheljbonner1 @rararesources #coverreveal

Thread Of Hope

Honesty is the best policy. Isn’t it?

What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?

 

Prospero is prepared to tell Leonie most of his past – if he can find her – but one of his secrets could send her running again. Another could destroy any future they might have. And one could kill her. Dare he risk it?

 

Leonie is terrified of the consequences of sharing any of her past with anyone. But not even Leonie knows the secrets that her very existence contains.

 

Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie and they could tear the world apart. Who does he turn to, and who should he share them with? If he tells the wrong person he could seal not just Leonie’s death warrant but those of millions more.

 

And no one has told Leonie the mystery of her necklace. When she discovers that, will she sacrifice everything and risk all that Gabriel has been working for?

Author Bio

Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.

Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance. Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun. When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club. Target shooting only, honest. Nothing to worry about.

She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.

Happy Valentine’s Day!💘

I have the perfect Valentines review for you with this lovely love story full of heart and humor! Big thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Belinda Missen for her lovely words!💗

An Impossible Thing Called Love

Don’t miss the new delightfully uplifting book from the author of A Recipe for Disaster!

A second chance at love…

When globe-trotting Emmy first fell for first-aider William on a freezing New Year’s Eve, she really believed that their love would go the distance.

But when she returns to Australia, her letters start to go unanswered and her emails bounce back unread, Emmy decides it’s time to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and start afresh in London.

So she’s shocked when William walks in on her very first day at her new job! Even worse, he’s hotter than ever. But why did he disappear for so long? What has he been hiding? And could this really be their second chance at falling in love…?

Perfect for fans of Carole Mathews, Mhairi McFarlane and Carrie Hope Fletcher.

My Thoughts

A sweet swoon worthy second chance romance perfect for Valentine’s Day 💘

Belinda Missen dreams up romantic stories that are bursting with everything I love about the genre… wonderful characters, witty dialogue, beautiful settings, strong friendships, and humor… it is the month of love and this is the perfect story to sweep you off your feet and take you away for a few hours…

Emmy and Will meet while on vacation… their connection is strong, but can it withstand the test of thousands of Miles? At first they remain in contact email, text, all the means of communication we have available to us today… but when communication stops Emmy is heartbroken… some Time goes by and she finds herself moving to London for a new job… where…. guess who she runs into? SO will Emmy and Will get a second chance at love?

such a fun flirty feel good story filled with humor and heart… Emmy and Will are both very likable, quite adorable together, and I really enjoyed the banter between them… this is the type of story that makes you want to believe in love and happily ever after…

An enchanting and engaging romance that will delight anyone who loves the love! Recommend!

Gap Years by Dave Holwill @daveholwill @rararesources #bookreview #gapyears

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

We are supposed to have a huge rainstorm tomorrow in Southern California, they are referring to it as an atmospheric river, not sure what that is, but I can let you know tomorrow! It is a perfect excuse to stay in all day and make a day of reading and blogging out of it, Californians cannot drive in the rain! alright enough about that! Excited to share with you my review for this little gem! A huge thank you to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and two Dave Holwill for his wise words!😃

Gap Years

19 year old Sean hasn’t seen his father since he was twelve. His mother has never really explained why. An argument with her leads to his moving to the other side of the country.

Martin, his father, has his life thrown into turmoil when the son he hasn’t seen in nearly eight years strolls back into his life immediately killing his dog and hospitalising his step-daughter.

The one thing they have in common is the friendship of a girl called Rhiannon.

Over the course of one summer Sean experiences sexual awakenings from all angles, discovers the fleeting nature of friendship and learns to cope with rejection.

Martin, meanwhile, struggles to reconnect with Sean while trying to delicately turn down the increasingly inappropriate advances of a girl he sees as a surrogate daughter and keep a struggling marriage alive.

Gap Years is an exploration of what it means to be a man in the 21st Century seen from two very different perspectives – neatly hidden inside a funny story about bicycles, guitars and unrequited love.

My Thoughts

An honest and entertaining look at a dysfunctional father/son relationship.

Dave Holwill’s previous book The “The Craftroom” was full of dark humor and quirky characters… I was expecting the same thing with this book, but while this book still has quite a bit of humor it is a little more serious in tone… I was surprised and I’d have to say pleasantly so….

this story is about a father and son who have been estranged for over eight years trying to find their way back to one another…Shauns mother Tonya did what she could to keep Sean away from his father… but when they have a huge disagreement about Sean going to University, Sean up and leaves and goes to live with his father… Martin has not seen his son in over eight years, he’s not quite sure how to repair this relationship… he is remarried to Allison and has a lovely daughter he adores with all his heart…. Will father and son ever find a bond between them?

The story was told from both Martin and Sean’s perspectives… I found this incredibly impactful it really let you see both sides of the story throughout the book… The book starts off with a crash quite literally… there was also a girl who almost put a permanent wedge between father and son… she really was a despicable character, super manipulative, I imagine we were meant to dislike her? I did however really like all the rest of the characters I liked Sean and I really wanted him to find his way in the world, I liked Martin and his new wife Allison, they really did have a very strong relationship…

A well-crafted story about discovering who you are and where you belong and where you’re headed to next, recommend!

Author Bio –

Dave Holwill was born in Guildford in 1977 and quickly decided that he preferred the Westcountry – moving to Devon in 1983 (with some input from his parents).
After an expensive (and possibly wasted) education there, he has worked variously as a postman, a framer, and a print department manager (though if you are the only person in the department then can you really be called a manager?) all whilst continuing to play in every kind of band imaginable on most instruments you can think of.
Gap Years is his third novel – following on the heels of Weekend Rockstars and The Craft Room, and he is currently working on the fourth (a folk horror set in his native mid-Devon) and a sequel to Weekend Rockstars.

The Secret to Falling in Love by Victoria Cooke @victoriacooke10 @rararesources #bookreview #giveaway #bookbirthday

Happy Saturday book lovers!

We are fast approaching the day of love! Excited to share with you my review for this lovely story filled with a tremendous amount of heart! Big thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and to Victoria Cook for her beautiful story!💕

The Secret to Falling in Love

Lifestyle journalist and thirty-something singleton Melissa hashtags, insta’s and snapchats her supposedly fabulous life on every social media platform there is.

That is until she wakes up on her birthday, another year older and still alone, wondering if for all her internet dates, love really can be found online? The challenge: go technology free for a whole month!

Forced to confront the reality of her life without its perfect filters, Melissa knows she needs to make some changes. But when she bumps into not one, but two gorgeous men, without the use of an app, she believes there could be hope for love offline.

If only there was a way to choose the right guy for her…

My Thoughts

A fun lighthearted love story guaranteed to make you smile!

This was an entertaining story all about unplugging and finding love the old-school way… while this was amusing, it also made me feel old, because this is exactly how it was when I was dating… no online dating sites, no apps, no social media, no cell phones… back in the Day we had to go out and meet people, exchange phone numbers on paper, and then*gasp* wait for a phone call on the landline, I know, crazy right!

Melisa is a 35-year-old independent and single woman… just like a lot of us she can’t go very long without looking at her screen… so when she decides to unplug it is a bit of culture shock… she Hass to pick her head up and start living in the real world… so how different is it to find love off-line, especially because Melisa was not very successful with the modern methods…. soon she finds she has met two handsome men, and is in a bit of a pickle and a bit of a love triangle… so will Melisa successfully stay unplugged for an entire month? Will she find true love the old-fashioned way? You’ll need to read this book to find out!

Such a fun upbeat love story… mellisa was a warm wonderful character that you can’t help but route four… The rest of the characters were charming and quirky as well… really the perfect pick me up read especially suitable for Valentines week!💕

🎵🎵🎵 song running through my head, yes it’s old-school, but so appropriate!😃

… Well, I’ve spent a lifetime lookin’ for you;
singles bars and good time lovers were never true.
Playin’ a fools game hopin’ to win;
and tellin’ those sweet lies and losin’ again.
I was lookin’ for love in all the wrong places,
Lookin’ for love in too many faces,
searchin’ their eyes and lookin’ for traces
of what I’m dreamin’ of.
Hopin’ to find a friend and a lover;
I’ll bless the day I discover
another heart lookin’ for love.
And I was alone then, no love in sight;
and I did ev’rything I could to get me though the night.
Don’t know where it started or where it might end;
I turned to a stranger just like a friend.
I was lookin’ for love in all the wrong places,
Lookin’ for love in too many faces,
searchin’ their eyes and lookin’ for traces
of what…

Summer on the Italian Lakes by Lucy Coleman @LucyColemanAuth @rararesources #bookreview #giveaway

Happy Wednesday and Happy 16th Birthday to my youngest son! I’m certain he looks at my blog every day!😉

Excited to share with you my review for this delightful story full of romance and amore! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and to Lucy Coleman for her wonderful story!💕

Summer on the Italian Lakes

Bestselling Brianna Middleton has won the hearts of millions of readers with her sweeping – and steamy – love stories. But the girl behind the typewriter is struggling… Not only does she have writer’s block, but she’s a world-famous romance author with zero romance in her own life.

So the opportunity to spend the summer teaching at a writer’s retreat in an idyllic villa on the shores of Lake Garda – owned by superstar author Arran Jamieson – could this be just the thing to fire up Brie’s writing – and romantic – mojo?

Brie’s sun-drenched Italian summer could be the beginning of this writer’s very own happy-ever-after…

Escape the January blues with this sun-drenched, heart-warming story from the bestselling author of Snowflakes Over Holly Cove.

My Thoughts

Now that’s AMORE!

A sweet love story that will make you want to visit Italy, write a book, and fall in love! This really is the perfect romance for any book lover… A delightful romantic story peppered with inside information on publishing and writing… I have no aspirations of being an author, but there were times during this book I thought I should give it a go, but no worries I change my mind! I strategically avoided all papers or as many as possible while I was in college, an English major I am not!

Brie is a romance writer who leans more towards the steamier side of things… unfortunately her own life isn’t quite as romantic or steamy as those in her books… after a bad and fairly public break up Brie hits rock-bottom, her friends and family are so concerned if they stage an intervention… soon after Brie finds herself heading to Italy to teach at a writers retreat… there she meets academic writer and host Arran, a man who Brie believes does not have a romantic bone in his body….. but with time and as these two get to know each other better, she finds out that romance comes in all shapes and forms… she also finds out that love is never simple… so will these to be able to overcome love’s messiness? You’ll need to read this book to find out!

Brie was such a fun real and relatable character! I thinkt her insecurities and doubts will resonate with many readers as well as her dreams and romantic hopes… likewise Arran was a relatable character he was loving but not necessarily “romantic“…. their Romance was so sweet although a bit speedy… something else I really found fascinating about this book was all the writing and publishing tidbits, I admire author so much and it was interesting to see how their minds work….

A lovely story full of wonderful characters, a Beautiful setting, and Un sacco di amore! Recommend!

🎵🎵🎵 song running through my head!

(In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl here’s what they say)
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That’s amore
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
That’s amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you’ll sing “Vita bella”
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasul
That’s amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you’re not
Dreaming signore
Scuzzi me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That’s amore
When the moon hits you eye like a big pizza pie
That’s amore
When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine
That’s amore
Bells will…

The Talisman: Molly’s Story by Eliza J. Scott @ElizaJScott1 @rararesources #bookreview #giveaway

Happy Monday all!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Delighted to share with you my review for this little gem that will definitely warm your heart! A huge thank you to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and two Eliza J. Scott for her wonderful story!💜

THE TALISMAN – MOLLY’S STORY

Molly’s dream of taking over her childhood home at Withrin Hill Farm with husband Pip and their three children has finally come true. And, as they settle into the stunning Georgian farmhouse, with their plans to diversify into glamping nicely taking shape, the family couldn’t be happier.
But tragedy suddenly strikes, and Molly’s world is turned upside down.

Heartbroken and devastated, she struggles to face each day. True to form, her fiercely loyal best friends, Kitty and Violet, rally round offering love and support, but Molly doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to smile again. Until the day a tall, dark stranger with twinkly eyes arrives…

Follow Molly’s story in book 2 of the Life on the Moors Series set in Lytell Stangdale, a picture-perfect village in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors, where life is anything but quiet.

A heart-warming story of love, friendship and hope.

My Thoughts

This was a lovely story filled with hope and heart!

I really enjoyed Kitty’s story in “The Letter“… so it was really wonderful to get a chance to spend more time with her friend Molly… and bonus we got to drop in on kitty as well… this is a charming small-town romance series, but the books can be read as standalones…

Molly her husband and her children are finally moving into an adorable old farmhouse… their intention is to set up a glamping area… I have read a few books now about Glamping and yet I don’t know anyone that has gone, interesting concept… just as Molly is about to realize her dreams tragedy strikes and her world is turned upside down…. don’t want to go into the details especially because it is not mentioned in the blurb and I do not want to spoil anything for anybody just know that this book is very heartwarming and very heartbreaking and ultimately it is very hopeful….

Molly is distraught but she is surrounded by amazing friends in both Kitty and Violet… this really is my favorite part of these books I love strong friendships between women and the bond between these ladies is unbreakable! Eliza J Scott is not afraid of writing about some tough subject matter and she handles it with a loving and gentle hand…

A engaging story about friendship, love, moving on, and second chances, recommend!

Amazing Grace by Kim Nash @KimTheBookworm @HeraBooks @rararesources #coverreveal

Happy Friday bookworms!

Super excited to share with you today the cover for the lovely Kim Nash’s debut book! Kim I am so very happy and excited for you! And I cannot wait to read this beauty!🐛📚

Amazing Grace

She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…

Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted. 

Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.

Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks… 

Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves. 

So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness? 

A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.

The Cocktail Bar by Isabella May @IsabellaMayBks @rararesources #bookreview #giveaway

Happy February bibliophiles! Where oh where did January go?

Excited to share with you today my review for this delightful book! A huge thank you to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and two Isabella May for her lovely story! 🍹

The Cocktail Bar

Rock star, River Jackson, is back in his hometown of Glastonbury to open a cocktail bar… and the locals aren’t impressed.

Seductive Georgina is proving too hot to handle; band mate, Angelic Alice, is messing with his heart and his head; his mum is a hippie-dippy liability; his school friends have resorted to violence – oh, and his band manager, Lennie, AND the media are on his trail.

But River is armed with a magical Mexican elixir which will change the lives of the Three Chosen Ones. Once the Mexican wave of joy takes a hold of the town, he’s glad he didn’t lose his proverbial bottle.

Pity he hasn’t taken better care of the real one.

My Thoughts

A romantic tale filled with cocktails, love, humor, and a generous sprinkling of magic!

This book was just straight up fun! All these characters were drawn so well, i felt as though i was in the middle of all the chaos… such a lovely story filled with drama and laughs and plenty of push and pull, give and take…

River returns home leaving his life as a rockstar to open his dream cocktail bar… armed with a magic elixir that will bring happiness if he administers it to the chosen three… River soon find himself in the middle of a tug-of-war between Georgina and Alice for his affection… these two ladies could not be more different, and you will have a definite favorite! Although I have to admit I really liked both of their characters quite a bit, and I loved the drama and back-and-forth! We also have River’s mother who is absolutely fabulous! This was definitely not your run-of-the-mill average rockstar romance, that is for sure!

Beautifully told with descriptive writing that popped off the pages… storytelling that really pulled you into these characters’ lives completely enveloping you…. by the end of this book I felt as though I really knew these characters and I truly cared for them!

An engaging story that will warm your heart and humor your soul, absolutely recommend!

The Scott Family Short Stories by Amanda Paull @Apaullfiction @rararesources #bookreview

Happy Thursday book lovers!

Most of you know I love me a good romcom and with this series of short stories I got three! These little gems are the perfect afternoon pick me up! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the tour and to Amanda Paull for her wonderful whimsical words!💎💎💎

My Thoughts

Such a fun filled laugh out loud series of three short stories!

This delightful short story series is a definite pick me up, a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day! Sweet short stories that will put a huge smile on your face! Romantic comedy at its absolute best!

All three of these stories feature Laura and Ben and they’re blooming romance…. they also feature Laura’s crazy irreverent family… The Scott family made for a good story, however I’m not sure I’d want to be in Laura‘s position and take someone home to meet them…. The Scott family will make you both laugh and cringe…. these entertaining short stories are the perfect way to spend the afternoon, my only complaint is they weren’t long enough!

Dance lessons, a poodle, and posh marshmallows all make for one engaging read! Recommend!

Let’s Dance (Scott Family Short Stories, Book 1)

She’s helping out a friend. His dad’s hip’s gone. Could a farcical mix-up lead to love?

Ballroom dancing is the last thing Laura wants to try. But her best friend is desperate to meet a hip-swinging Adonis, so before she knows it, Laura is cha cha cha-ing in the back of the Dog and Duck with nerdy Ben. At least no one else need ever find out. No such luck. Her mother is armed with a social media page and dangerous. The shenanigans begin. What a pity Ben’s now looking rather dapper. Will he scarper? Or is Ben made of sterner stuff?
If you like innocent, laugh-out-loud family mayhem, you’ll love Let’s Dance, the first Scott Family.
