Gjust finished reading this wonderful story. First of all I thought it was going to be a straight forward love story, so was I in for a nice surprise. Sasha, every girl needs one! I didn't like him to start with, after all he did break Pipers heart into tiny pieces. I then discovered further on in the book that he had a son. This put me off of him, but as the story progressed I fell more and more for him, I'm a sucker for second time romances, even if its with the same man. 

I would so recommend this book. d this one next. 

This is the blurb.

Sometimes the one who broke your heart is the one who needs saving the most.

Piper Sandervale never thought she’d ever see Sasha Koval again, not since he'd taken her heart, ripped it out and obliterated it. Now six years have passed, and she has run into him once more at the local fairgrounds in Las Vegas. He desperately wants another chance, and he’s willing to do anything to get her back. She’s not willing to give him anything but a taste of his own medicine, and this may be her chance for payback. But is she only getting in way over her head? 

Even as she plots her revenge, Piper discovers that something has changed with Sasha, and she finds herself struggling to justify holding on to past hurts as he continues his quest for atonement.

Who needs saving now?

If you have read the blurb, you get the gist of what this book is about. Its well written as is the authors other books. I found the book easy to get into, it captured my interest straight away with a fire in the first few pages. Then when it was discovered that the fire was not an accident it gripped my entire attention more.

Its a shame my housework and mowing the lawn today took me away from the story! However, it did slow down in the middle bit, for a while I was finding myself relaxed and my mind wandering, but then it picked up again. 

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading Amish stories, and if you've not read any Amish stories, I urge you to try reading one, maybe start with this one.

*This copy was given me by the publisher for an honest and truthful review*
I have just started to read this, I'm on at 25% already and hooked!

This is another on my TBR list that you may like to purchase. 

Looking forward to reading this one too. I like to read different genres, some thrillers, some with a good story too, meaty and psychological thrillers, family saga etc, and some times a nice happy ending like this says it will be :)

You can purchase this one HERE
I've been lucky to receive this book to read from the author, I love the page and the blurb, I have one more book to read before getting to this one, but if you want to read this before me, you can purchase it HERE

I was lucky to have a bit of a lazy afternoon, so I started this book. I was very lucky to get this copy from the author! I wasn't sure at first if its the kind of book I would love to read, not much of a chit lit kinda gal. I was mistaken though, as this isn't really chit lit, its a little suspense, bit of love, and great humour. 

The word TRINITY three in one, really good and apt title I thought. The imaginary friend smelling of chocolate, I think every woman would like one of them!! sniff sniff......

Oh did I mention it has a bit of crime in there too? Its a well rounded read and I enjoyed it more, much more than I thought I would [sorry Patrick LOL] I had read the blurb, and he did say, only if its something you might be interested to read. I am so glad I took him up on the offer though, I thoroughly enjoyed it and made a good read following on from my previous one. 

I was laughing whilst reading, didn't realize I was, until my daughter said "what's so funny" so of course, she is inline to read this now. 

Well written Patrick, and looking forward to many more.

I was so excited to get this book in ARC from the publishers, I even messaged Catherine on Good Reads to tell her! I love this author and have read almost all of her books. A friend online who shares the same taste in books as I do encouraged me to read one of her. I did. Thought, not bad, really enjoyed it, so I went on to read another then another........;

This is about 2 sisters, they find themselves having to leave home. I don't like giving much of the stories away on books I read as I feel it spoils it sometimes for others. I can say, that on reflection as I finished this book this book today I thought of the times we take things for granted, or question the motives of our nearest and dearest and think we know best. These two children taught me this is not the case in life. And not everyone is who they seem to be. Only what they want to appear to be.

I hope I've whet your appetite for when this novel is released in September of this year [2013]

GREAT BOOK Catherine Ryan Hyde.

orward to reading all of these!!!


Out in September 2013

I really need to catch up with my reading, now that things have settled more at home I can maybe get my nose stuck into a book.

This book [below] is one I am longing to get around to reading. Its due out in June, so be sure to purchase it as I love this authors work as I am sure you will

The Latest Novel from Best-Selling Author Jim Stovall 

Joey Anderson’s great-grandmother, Sally Mae Anderson, touched many lives as Theodore Hamilton’s assistant. When Joey inherits her bed-and-breakfast, he wonders how he will fulfill her legacy. 

Jason Stevens knows how Joey feels. Jason’s grandfather left him a similar inheritance years before—and his life has never been the same. The continuation of the Ultimate Gift series, The Gift of a Legacy reminds readers that one gift can change the world.

This book looks just up my street. I love the cover of this, I am sure many times we've seen something/someone and its left us puzzled and guessing.

Olivia Germaine has already found love. Devoted wife, loyal friend, determined career woman - she’s created the life she always envisioned.

But when Olivia locks eyes with a handsome stranger across a crowded room, he peers a little too closely and sees emotions she thought she’d buried long ago.

David Dylan, alleged playboy and eternal bachelor, challenges Olivia to confront the life she’s built and to make decisions that could either lead to happiness . . . or regret.

Will Olivia be able to draw the line between lust and love?

And can David respect that line?
I have plenty of books lined up to read, as I read them I will write a review on here as to what I personally think about the storyline.

This one is not out until September, I am really looking forward to reading this one and giving a review, I was lucky to be awarded an ARC

This is ONE of my fav authors! I just love her work. I am lucky to get this ARC via the publishers to read and review, so watch this space. I am so looking forward to reading this.

You can pre order your copy from AMAZON here Published by Random house.

There seems to have been a lot of hype on this book where some readers were saying horrible nasty things about its contents and to the author, well, I just HAD to read it and see for myself.

I'm 55 yrs old, its erotic, sexual but nothing I haven't read before! There are lots of books out there, you choose to read them. If anyone has chosen to read this and didn't like it or didn't approve of the contents, then why buy it in the first place? or why not just put it down and choose another that you like better? Just because its a story from one of your fav authors doesn't mean they will write another book and another book that you approve of. Artists like to explore and push the boundaries now and again, that is their ability.

I loved this book, it was different, and at the end, made you think, although it has sexual content, like I say, its nothing that some wouldn't watch on TV. Its a shame its resulted in the author pulling this book. 
I have just finished reading this book. I couldn't sleep well last night so went from one read to another. I choose this one and finished it this morning.

I was lucky to get this one from the publishers to give an honest review and I must say, this was an excellent detailed read.

After reading her grandmother's will, she became intrigued with a mysterious woman mentioned in there. She couldn't let this rest until she found more out about her and all that it entalled.

It keeps turning pages, it really is an excellent read which you can expect from Lisa Jewell.

You will find this at Random house publishers and other book outlets

COUNTRY LOVING by CATHY WOODMAN was an excellent read. I didn't realize it was part of a sequence of reads, this book was good as a stand alone book seeing as I hadn't read any of the others.
It has a good flow of writing, characters are very real and draw you into the daily grind and worry of renovating the run down farm.
At the start I thought she was a bit of a weak woman where men were concerned and mean keeping her boyfriend [who would like to be her fiance! at arms length and keep making excuses] I felt she should have put him out of his misery. It all tied together nicely at the end though.

I would definetly be reading more of this authors books in the future.

This is the book I have chosen to read next.
Author, Cathy Woodman Country Living


Successful city accountant Stevie receives two surprises in one week: a proposal of marriage from her boyfriend Nick and a phone call begging her to return to the family farm in Devon to help out after her father has a stroke.

But what she thought would be a long weekend in the country turns into much longer as she struggles to bring order to her father's rundown farm. Finally, she decides to give up her job - and her fiance - and take on the farm permanently. She dreams of turning it into a tourist attraction, never realising it would be so difficult. But with the help of many of Talyton St George's local residents, and the locum vet Leon, she is starting to make progress.

The link to purchase this book on Amazon is here
I have just finished reading UNTIL YOU'RE MINE by SAMANTHA HAYES link here on Amazon. 

I've not read any book by this author before, so she has been a really new author to me and one that I will be watching for and reading books she already has out.

I don't like giving too much away about the story as it tends to spoils it for the reader, so I am going to say its a psychological thriller. I was hooked from beginning to end. The writing was free flowing, easy to connect with the characters and so intriguing throughout. I was so convinced I knew the ending, I know a lot of reviews say things like "It was a book I couldn't put down" this is true on this one and I don't use that loosely.

Also what is used is "There were so many twists and turns" Yes there was! but not in the way that you feel. All the way through I was focused on one character being the main person who committed the 'deadly deed' was I right? You will have to read this to see!! If you love a good book that takes your into character, this is the one. I really, really loved this book. Samantha Hayes is certainly on my favourite author's lists

This is what I have chosen to start reading now. You can find this book to publish on Amazon. Its not yet been released and I've been lucky to be given a copy to review by the author and publishers.

I have just finished The Last Hour. It was an intricate piece of writing. Without going into too much detail and giving you the storyline, I can just give a clue 'it was an out of body experience', that will keep you guessing! has it whet your appitite to maybe have read of this novel. I would recommend you read them in the sequence I have. I know the author says each one is a stand alone book, which is it, however, if you read The Last Hour first, you will get confused over the characters as they were built up in the two previous books.

Highly recommended.

This one is the last in the series, it got me hooked right away, starts off with a car crash!

Just finished reading this.

What a writer! I enjoyed the first book in this series, and this one was just as good, a real insight to how a Mother can screw up. How parents can screw up really.

Julia, although appearing to be a bit of a rebel later became a person to me with a huge heart.

Well worth reading, although these can be read in any order, I suggest this one be the 2nd in line to be read.
