The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part 3

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part Three

by Audrey Davis

 

Nothing lasts forever … Gary’s time on earth seems to be coming to an end. His visits are less frequent and his visibility is fading fast. But he still has a mission to accomplish, which involves Hattie and her ability to pass on a heart-rending message.

Best friend Cat’s ex-husband is determined to prove that he deserves another chance, but do leopards really change their spots?

Times are tough for Hattie’s mother Rachel, but where there’s life, there’s hope …

Meanwhile, is there someone already in Hattie’s life who can help her move on when it’s finally time to say goodbye?

Get your tissues at the ready – both for laughter and tears – with the final instalment of a trilogy that has been hailed ‘brilliant’, ‘hilarious’, and ‘a great feel-good read’.


Christie’s Review

5 STARS

This is the final book in a witty, charming, and really special series. Gary’s visits to Hattie are growing fewer, but he has a very special request for her to accomplish. We also catch up with Rachel’s mother and her health issues and with Cat who finds herself caught between a new love and an old one who swears he is a changed man. Get ready for a heartfelt and emotional read. Beware: have the tissues ready, oh but it is so worth the journey.

Oh my goodness, there were so many things I loved about this book…almost too numerous to count. But here are a few…this book was told in different perspectives, Hattie, Cat, and Rachel. Each of them had something significant happening yet Davis pulled the story together perfectly. The book was also well-written, and the characters just tugged at my heart. Of course, my favorite was the relationship Hattie shared with Gary. I loved the reflections on her love for Gary, what made her fall in love with him in the beginning, from the way he made her laugh to how special he made her feel. I could understand why she feel so in love with him.

The series as a whole was so different and original. There were times I laughed and times I cried. At its core is the theme of love and life. It’s about falling in love and losing the one you love, yet that love resides in your heart forever even as you continue living. For me, it was a perfect ending for this special series.

About Audrey Davis

2017-04-13 19.43.40

Audrey Davis survived secondary school on the West coast of Scotland. Rubbish at science but not too bad at English, she originally wanted to be an actress but was persuaded that journalism was a safer option. Probably wise. She studied at Napier College in Edinburgh, the only place in Scotland at that time to offer a journalism course.


Her first foray into the hard-nosed newspaper world was as a junior reporter in Dumfriesshire. Duties included interviewing farmers about the prize-winning heifers to reporting on family tragedies. She persuaded her editor to let her launch an entertainment column which meant meeting the odd celebrity – or just the downright odd. From there, she moved to the loftier rank of senior reporter back in her home patch. Slightly more money, fewer farm animals but a higher crime rate. As Taggart would say: ‘There’s been a murrrrder!’


After a stint in London on a video magazine – yes, she is that old – Audrey moved to Singapore with her fiancé. She tried valiantly to embrace the stinking heat, humidity and lack of jobs, although she did work briefly on a magazine which was banned by the government for ‘artistic’ use of naked men’s bottoms.


Next on her adventures was a land Down Under where her main focus was raising Cost Centre One (aka firstborn) and coming to terms with the imminent arrival of Number Two. Still, she loved the Aussie way of life – BBQs, beaches and bring your own booze to restaurants – so it came as a blow when OH announced a move back to the UK. Not a job between them, the climate a possible deal breaker and an Exorcist-style vomiting infant on the flight home didn’t bode well …


Always a survivor, Audrey sought out similar-minded friends (i.e. slightly bonkers), got the children into a good school and thought about taking up writing again. Sadly, thinking about it was as far as she got, unless you count shopping lists. Then, hubby drops another bombshell. Switzerland. As in – it’s packing time again. Off to the land of cheese, chocolate, scarily efficient trains and a couple of teeny, tiny issues. Like driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road and speaking a foreign language (French). The former was conquered fairly quickly (we’ll skip over the wall demolition in week two), the latter remains an ongoing battle of the hopeful against the hopeless. At least she provides amusement for the local workforce.
It wasn’t until 2016 that Audrey rediscovered her writing mojo with an online Writing Fiction course. From there, her first novel – A Clean Sweep – was born, although it took a bit longer than nine months from conception. A short, darker prequel – A Clean Break – followed, and in November 2017 she published the first in a novella trilogy, The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part One. Part Two is published on 21 March 2018, with the conclusion following in July. After which she might have a wee lie down …

Butterface by Avery Flynn Release Blitz

BUTTERFACE_RELEASE BLITZ.jpg

“I love the heck out of this book! It’s super fresh and hysterical.” — Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

Butterface, a hot romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn, is LIVE!

2018-0627 Avery Flynn

Synopsis

Looks aren’t everything.

It’s true. I’m not what most people would call “pretty” and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good…

Until a bunch of jerks think it’s hilarious to put the “butterface” (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever—and that old humiliation hits hard.

I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league.

But then he kisses me.

And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything.

Then he tells everyone we’ve been dating for months.

Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over “necessary” tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off.

But there’s something he’s not telling me about why he’s really hanging around, and I’m pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers.

Because this is not a makeover story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale…

About Avery

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Handle with Care by Nina Croft Release Blitz

HWC_RELEASE BLITZ

“Heat, heart and plenty of happy sighs.”

— Avery Flynn, USA Today bestselling author

Handle with Care, an all-new sexy and emotional second chance romance from Nina Croft is LIVE!

2018-0682 Nina Croft b01

Synopsis

What if all you want is the one thing you can’t have?

First grade teacher Emily Towson always does the right thing. The sensible thing. But in her dreams, she does bad, bad things with the town’s baddest boy: Tanner O’Connor. But when he sells her grandmother a Harley, fantasy is about to meet a dose of reality.

And then he goes and calls her “sensible”…

Tanner can’t believe sweet Emily is standing in his shop. Yelling and waving her hands and looking so god damn sexy he’s having trouble focusing. He’d spent two hard years in prison, with only the thought of this “good girl” to keep him sane.

He really should send her away…

Before either one thinks though, they’re naked and making memories on his tool bench with apparently the oldest condom in history. Now Tanner’s managed to knock-up the town’s “good girl” and she’s going to lose her job over some stupid “morality clause” if he doesn’t step up.

But can this bad boy teach his good girl they’re perfect for each other in time?

About Nina:

Growing up in the cold, wet, north of England, Nina Croft spent a lot of time huddled under the blankets dreaming of faraway sunnier places and ponies. When she discovered both could be found between the covers of a book, her life changed forever.

At the age of eighteen, in an attempt to turn dreams into reality, she headed south in search of the sun. She quickly picked up the perfect husband along the way, and developed a taste for red wine and holidays in warm places.

Soon holidays weren’t enough, and together they volunteered to work in Africa where they both discovered a love of traveling and a dislike of 9-5 work. Afterward they spent a number of years travelling (whenever possible) intermingled with working (whenever the money ran out.) Eventually they stumbled upon a remote area in the mountains of southern Spain where they bought the small almond farm they now call home.

No electricity, no neighbors, no chocolate shops, but on the plus side, stunning scenery, a vineyard to make her own red wine, and far enough away from anywhere to satisfy Nina’s hermit tendencies. She shares the farm with her husband, and an ever increasing number of animals, including Piggles, a three-legged Vietnamese pot-bellied pig.

Nina now spends her days riding her mare Gencianna under the blue Spanish skies—sunshine and ponies. She reckons this is proof that dreams really can come true if you want them enough.

She still travels, but usually only in her imagination, and can often be found lying under a fig tree, wine in hand, plotting stories of love in faraway places.

Nina believes love can come to anyone, anytime, anywhere and her books reflect this.

Hunches, horse races, and heartbreak

Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He’d also like to forget her entirely, but that’s never going to happen.

Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be . . .

Ten years after Roscoe Winston dropped out of her life, all Simone Payton wants is to exploit him. She’d also like some answers from her former best friend about why he ghosted her, but if she never gets those answers, that’s a-okay. Simone let go of the past a long time ago. Seriously, she has. She totally, totally has. She is definitely not still thinking about Roscoe. Nope. She’s more than happy to forget he exists.

But first, she needs just one teeny-tiny favor . . .

5-Star Review · Danielle's Reviews · Romance

Until We Are Gone by Gia Riley Release Day Blitz with 5-Star Review

Until We Are Gone, an all-new
Standalone Emotional Romance by Gia Riley is NOW LIVE!!

 

I wanted a family with Cash.We had dreams –building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket
fence.

Or so I’m told.

I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we
shared.

The past ten years were erased and with time, they’re supposed to come back.

But this isn’t your typical case of amnesia

What if I’m not supposed to remember?

What if I was meant to forget?

Maybe I don’t want my old life back.

Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth.

Losing my memory wasn’t tragic.

Losing my memory was fate.

 
 

Danielle’s Review
5 STARS

I love everything written by Gia Riley and this one is no exception!!

Meadow wakes in the hospital but doesn’t recognize the man at her bedside, holding her hand. She finds out he is her husband, Cash, but has no recollection of him or the past several years of her life. Meadow and Cash are hopeful that the amnesia may only be temporary and as soon as she is well enough, she goes home with Cash to recover from her injuries. A few months later, her memory is no closer to coming back but Meadow knows she is not happy with Cash and the life she now has. The only way to escape the pain in her mind and heart is to lose herself in the bottle. When she blacks out, she at least has the memories of her beloved grandmother to comfort her.

Cash cannot convince Meadow to love him again and is fighting a losing battle trying to get Meadow to adjust to this life with him. He spends his days and nights in a war with her and her newfound addiction to alcohol. He never knows what is going to happen next with Meadow’s erratic behavior but will do anything to get her to stay. Cash knows that rehab is Meadow’s only hope at this point but if he forces her to go, will she resent him forever?

Will Meadow’s memory return? Will Cash and Meadow find their way back to each other?

When I started reading this book, my heart was pulled in one direction but in the back of my mind, I kept wondering about what Meadow couldn’t remember. This book took some twists and turns that were completely unexpected. I loved the journey Meadow took to rediscover her happiness and feel she got the ending she deserved. Gia Riley is never afraid to deal with serious issues, real addictions and struggles, but always does so with style and grace and this book is no different. I will always be a huge fan of Gia and look forward to reading what she comes up with next.
