Happy Dreams at Mermaid cove by Marie Laval #Blogtour #Review #Giveaway

From the big city to a little yellow mobile library on the Isle of Skye …
When Jenna Palmer agrees to the new position of mobile librarian on the tiny Arrandale peninsular of the Isle of Skye, she knows she’s signing up for difficult working conditions and mediocre wages.
But Jenna needs to get away, and a little yellow mobile library called Buttercup could be her escape to happier dreams …
However, whilst Jenna can get to grips with foggy island roads, local mermaid legends and even big purple monsters, she never expected to have to contend with a boss as grumpy as Daniel McGregor, or a young book lover as enthusiastic as his niece, Katrina.
Arrandale might represent Jenna’s safe port in a storm, but could she and Buttercup also become a beacon of hope to Daniel, Katrina and the entire island community.

My Review

Happy Dreams at Mermaid Cove was an absolute joy to read, it has love, intrigue, laughter and sadness all entwined, with characters that I quickly felt as if I knew.

Marie describes Arrandale with such detail it came to life in my mind, it’s the best feeling when a book pulls you into its pages, so much so that when you stop reading and put the book down it’s a shock to find you’re sat in bed reading and not in the midst of the story.

The story starts as Jenna is on the boat over to Arrandale, she’s escaping an abusive relationship and the mobile library seems just the thing she needs to forget her past.

As you gradually meet the characters each one is colourful and easy to picture and feel like old friends. Every character is unique and brought a smile to my face. Daniel is complex and as you slowly uncover his background you understand why. The relationship between him and his niece is gorgeous.

I loved the aspect of the story surrounding the lost treasure of The Santa Catalina, this along with Jenna’s ex lurking in the background and her blossoming romance meant I could not put Happy Dreams at Mermaid cove down.

This is a total must have summer read and one I’ll be reading again when I need a pick me up!

Christmas is a time for love, laughter, families and friends, and in Mermaids Point, everyone is getting ready for the festive season.
For Nerissa and Tom, this will be their first Christmas as a couple, but making sure they have time for each other, whilst blending their families, will take some careful planning. What festive traditions will they make their own?

But when Jake’s mum offers them an unexpected gift, their plans are turned upside down.
Alex can’t help but be charmed by beautiful and talented Ivy, but he’s still recovering from his ex-wife’s betrayal and has a secret life he’s not ready to share with anyone yet. But as the Christmas spirit starts weaving its magic, Alex may find himself ready for love sooner than he imagines.
For Andrew, nothing is more important than family. As friends and family gather beneath his roof it’s a time for reflection about what the future might hold.
As far as Nick is concerned, pop sensation Aurora Storm is the ‘one that got away’. After they shared
a brief holiday fling, he has been thinking about her ever since. Is Christmas the perfect time to finally reach out to her, or is love at first sight just in fairy-tales?

It’s always lovely to revisit a series and catch up with the characters. Christmas at Mermaids Point is an epilogue to Summer kisses & Autumn Dreams, but gives you a sneak preview into the next two books in the series.

The Score by Kerry Kaya #Review #Blogtour

Synopsis

He did the crime…

themselves. He thought they would be looked after…
Served his time…
Now a free man, Fletch returns to find his family in chaos, devastated by his prolonged incarceration. Kit is married to notorious gangster Rosco Taylor, while Austin seems hell bent on doing everything
he can to create a turf war.
Fletch knows he has to do something to get his kids under control, but he also knows that the seeds of this disaster were planted long ago by his own reckless actions.
Now Fletch is back and it’s time to settle the score.
Another gripping gangland read by Kerry Kaya. Perfect for fans of Kimberley Chambers, Martina Cole, Heather Atkinson and Caz Finlay

My Review

The score is a sequel to The price but can be read as a stand-alone book. I loved The price so was over joyed when the invite for this tour dropped into my inbox.

The score revisits Fletch as he comes out of prison after twenty years, I really enjoy revisiting characters that I have got to know in previous books, it’s like catching up with an old friend!

Even though Fletch is 20 years older he’s still Fletch and you can’t help but love him, he’s fierce and compassionate all rolled into one. He will fight for what is right tooth and nail. So when Fletch comes out of prison and discovers lots of truths that have been hidden from him regarding his children it doesn’t bode well.

Fletch’s children Austin & Kit are now all grown up and very much following in their Dad’s footsteps…much to Fletch’s horror.

The Score is a gritty gangland white knuckle read that will live in your head long after you finish the last page.

My Review

I’m occasionally slightly dizzy so when the invite to this beautiful blog tour dropped into my emails I didn’t put two & two together. So, as I read the first chapter and realised this was a modern day Christmas Carol I was literally over the moon.

A Christmas Caroline was a joy to read, Camilla has created a great character in Caroline, and in the true style of Scrooge Caroline is ice queen supreme at the beginning of the book but it was a real joy to see her gradually melt!

I loved the Christmas spirit Melodie, who was very funny and made me laugh out loud, she’s cheeky, Sassy & very quick witted.

A Christmas Caroline was an absolute perfect read for me, one of my favourite classics brought up to date beautifully by Camilla, I giggled my way through the pages and really did not want it to end. Thank you Camilla for creating such a joy!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Bar by Isabella May #Review #Blogtour #Giveaway

Synopsis

River and Alice miss Somerset. Christmas isn’t Christmas without family and friends, even when you live in quaint Cornwall.
When River’s Aunt Sheba dies unexpectedly, leaving him her ancient VW campervan, nostalgia nudges him and Alice back to Glastonbury – and the surrounding villages – to rediscover their roots whilst serving the most decadent hot chocolate and delectable gingerbread from their renovated
‘bar on wheels’.
A bar on wheels complete with a fold-up stage to host local talent competitions rivaling anything Simon Cowell could dream up, even if he’d gorged on a truckle of Cheddar cheese!
As the villagers sip their cocoa and ice their gingerbread houses amidst the festive backdrop of song, dance, and slightly more unconventional talents, River and Alice find themselves in an unexpected race against time:
Zara, their chocolate supplier is leaving Glastonbury on the twelfth day of Christmas, keen to put a string of disastrous relationships behind her to make a fresh start.
Bruno, their gregarious and gorgeous baking supplier is secretly smitten with Zara – ticking every box on her New Year’s wish list.
If only they can get them together for one experimental kiss under the mistletoe…
They’ve even enlisted their customers’ help in their mission to wrap this budding romance up in all the jingle bells and whistles. How hard can it be?
So, ho, ho VERY tricky, as it turns out…

My Review

I have not read a book of Isabella’s that I didn’t like and Twinkle Twinkle Little Bar has to be one of my favourites. We first met River and Alice in The Cocktail Bar it was lovely to revisit them and lots of the other characters that make an appearance too.

Isabella’s books always conjure up a feeling of warmth and feature tantalising food and drinks that make you wish you could step into the pages. Twinkle Twinkle Little Bar was no exception, the descriptions of the hot alcoholic beverages laced with a tipple and the festive treats made me want to go I search of a real life travelling festive bar.

I enjoyed getting to know Bruno and Zara who featured in The Cocktail bar but not in depth. Alice plays Cupid in trying to get the two together which isn’t as easy as she thinks.

As always with Isabella’s books there is a sprinkle of magic which I adore, let’s face it everyone needs a bit of magic in their life even if it’s weaved within the pages of a book.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Bar is an absolute joy to read, it definitely cheered me up and started me with the Christmas feels! This needs to be on everyone’s. Christmas reading list.

Thank you to Isabella and Rachel for inviting me on to this magical tour.

My Review

Under the mistletoe was a real surprise, I was expecting a fluffy chick lit but this had layers, and deals with some deep subjects, Sue does this beautifully within the pages.

Under the mistletoe is a lovely mixture of Christmas cheer set within a gorgeous village and a storyline that is addictive.

The romance between Laurel and Grady is complicated but you find yourself rooting for them throughout. Under the mistletoe is about forgiveness and moving forward in life, it’s a beautiful heartwarming read and one I would while heartedly recommend.

My Review

Gold Digger, the first in this series of books about Julie and Ralph has been one of my favourite reads of 2021, so I was so excited when I was invited on to the blog tour for Fool’s Gold and I wasn’t disappointed.

Fool’s Gold continues where Gold Digger ended but can be totally read as a stand-alone novel.

Fool’s Gold is a gritty rollercoaster of a read, I was pulled into the gangland underworld and loved every minute. I very quickly became reacquainted with the characters from the first book who all play the part in making this book one that was hard to put down.

I love the contrast of the Julie and Ralph who take part in the dodgy dealings of the Italian mob who Ralph works for to the Julie and Ralph behind closed doors. They both have a vulnerable side and compliment each other perfectly. Gillian creates her characters so well that it’s almost like watching them on a big screen.

I’m looking forward to the next instalment of The Gold’s.

My Review

Snug in Iceland was like a virtual Icelandic holiday, Victoria’s description transported me temporarily to the snowy gorgeousness of Reykjavik and to be honest I didn’t want to come back!

When Rachel was offered to oversee the opening of a new ‘Snug’ shop in Reykjavik she jumped at the chance, her relationship with Adam wasn’t feeling right and she felt the time away would do them both good.

On her arrival she meets Jonas, Jonas is everything that Adam isn’t, he’s fun, adventurous and makes her feel special. As their friendship grows Rachel realises that Adam isn’t her future.

Snug in Iceland is such a feel good read, it’s actually kept me sane in a very busy week! I felt like I lived every emotion with Rachel and Jonas and loved every minute of it. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that there may be a sequel!

My Review

What an absolutely beautiful book this is, I read this to my 5 year Grandson and also my pre-schoolers in my nursery, every single child was mesmerised.

The fact that The Whisker Twitchers kept a class of ten 3 year olds attention throughout the entire story is testament to how amazing this story is!

The illustrations are stunning and really enabled the children to conjure up Bella in their mind. From a learning point of view it had links with understanding the world, literacy and also social interaction as it encouraged even our less confident children to talk about their experiences in the snow. Also lots of opportunities for the children to think about what happens next and anticipate the next part of the story.

I loved the storyline, an all round perfect children’s book.

Thank you to Kathy and Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on to this blog tour.

All About Kathy

Writing is a relatively new part of my life. When I go to schools and am introduced as an author it is still a bit of a surprise to me!
It was the birth of my daughter (in 2016) that changed everything. I had spent many years building up my career in accountancy, accumulating business qualifications and generally working hard in that one field.
Spending time with my little girl and reading hundreds of different children’s stories really inspired me. My first book, Nana Duck, was published in 2017. It did well and I found that I enjoyed visiting schools and nurseries. There is nothing like reading your story and getting great reactions from a
class full of eager little children.
Now, I’m having ideas all of the time. I’m so looking forward to bringing more stories into the world, to seeing my characters come to life through the talented illustrators that I work with, and inspiring more children in my local area and beyond.

My Review

Well, what an absolute delight Murder at the house on the hill was to read. I’m often not in the mood for a real hard hitting crime book and I’ve never found a cozy crime read that has kept my interest… until this one!

To begin with if the title hadn’t had murder in it I would not have thought the story would have gone down that path, I was having a lovely time getting to know Nancy and her Gran Jane, they have such a wonderful relationship which is heartwarming throughout the book.

Dedley endings bookshop sounds gorgeous and is just the place I could spend an afternoon exploring, Victoria has a great knack of bringing the characters to life. The relationship between Nancy, Jane and Nancy’s best friend Jonathan is great, the way they tease him made me laugh out loud!

The murder mystery entwined amongst the pages had me reading the story at the rate of knots but I was still guessing whodunnit until the end. I am so glad this is just the first in the Dedley end mysteries series as I don’t feel ready to leave the village just yet!

My Review

I have read many of Sarah’s book but this is the first I have read in the Mermaid’s point series. This can be read as a stand-alone book although by the end I’m sure you’ll want to read the first.

Autumn Dreams at Mermaid Point is a lovely curl up on the sofa with a cuppa read. Sarah’s books are always a hug in a book and this is no exception. This book depicts two characters who have both lost the loves of their lives, Nerissa & Tom, although this is a very emotive subject it’s written about in a way that is very understanding and doesn’t just forget about how those two people were a major part of Nerissa & Tom’s lives. It’s about second chances of love and new beginnings. I also liked the fact that Nerissa and Tom were slightly older it made the story very relatable.

Mermaids Point is a beautifully depicted village and one that you wish was real, there is a real sense of community and it’s certainly a creation that makes you want to devour every book in the series so you can revisit it in your minds eye.

A huge thank you to Sarah and Rachel from Rachel’s Random Reads for including me on the Autumn Dreams at Mermaids Point blog tour.’
