BLOG TOUR – Intimate Strangers by Lasairiona E. McMaster

I absolutely adored Lasairiona's first book, Bloom Where You Are Planted - a no-nonsense guide to living abroad - so I couldn't wait to read her first fiction book. I'm pleased to say that it didn't disappoint! Lisa Millar makes the big 'mistake' of falling for handsome, musical, sporty AJ. So "what's the problem?" I … Continue reading BLOG TOUR – Intimate Strangers by Lasairiona E. McMaster

BLOG TOUR – Escape to Giddywell Grange by Kim Nash

Maddy Young thought she had it all.  Swanky city apartment? – yep. Fancy car? sorted. High-flying career? – tick. Even if she’s lost most of her friends because of spending all her time at work, and can’t remember when she last had fun, it’s worth it. Until she’s suddenly made redundant. Now she’s 37, jobless, … Continue reading BLOG TOUR – Escape to Giddywell Grange by Kim Nash

BLOG TOUR – Children of Sinai by Shelley Clarke

How would you feel if you got caught up in a secret so vast it threatened everything the world had come to believe? That’s what happened to John Milburn, computer science lecturer, orphan, husband and father, who lived an ordinary life in Haverhill, Suffolk, England. That is, until the dreams started… From the idyllic calm … Continue reading BLOG TOUR – Children of Sinai by Shelley Clarke

Even if you're never planning on re-locating from your comfortable current abode - read this book! Just because it's so worth reading!

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Cultivating a Fuji by Miriam Drori

It's launch day for Cultivating a Fuji, and Day One of the blog tour! So it's very exciting to be one of the first people to be able to introduce this very different, but rather beautiful book to the world! So often, it's easy to treat people who are different as just that: different, other, … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Cultivating a Fuji by Miriam Drori

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Suspects by Katharine Johnson

The Suspects has Emma as its unreliable narrator accompanied by four other equally unlikeable characters, with barely a redeemable feature among them: Stuart, Zak, Imogen and Xanthe. It's the late 80's in Bristol. Not a great time to be young and trying to gain a foothold in the big wide world. Nevertheless, these five individuals … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – The Suspects by Katharine Johnson

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Bridesmaids by Zara Stoneley

Anyone who's ever been involved in planning a wedding, whether it's their own, or a friend or family member's, knows that the final product (everything and everyone looking beautiful, smiles all around, hugs and kisses etc. etc.) certainly doesn't tell the full story! Not by a long shot! Bridesmaids is the story of Rachel's journey … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – Bridesmaids by Zara Stoneley

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – A Clean Canvas by Elizabeth Mundy

This was quite a different sort of crime read. Lena (pronounced Lay-na, not Lea-ner to rhyme with cleaner, although she thinks she should have reconsidered naming her business 'Lena's Cleaners) is a bit of an amateur sleuth, by all accounts. However, mostly she's a rather diligent business-woman who runs her own cleaning service. A Hungarian … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – A Clean Canvas by Elizabeth Mundy

BLOG TOUR REVIEW – One Last Summer By Victoria Connelly

A beautiful, sensitive and thought-provoking read about who we really want to spend time with when we know that our time is limited. This also hit very close to home as the ladies in the book are only very slightly younger than I am and these types of issues are similar to the ones that … Continue reading BLOG TOUR REVIEW – One Last Summer By Victoria Connelly
