Autumn Leaves

The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane

by Emily Harvale

 

Synopsis:

Part Three – Autumn leaves

Mia Ward was amazed to inherit her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda. She was equally astonished to discover she’d only inherit the place if she lives there for a year.

But it didn’t take long for Mia and her friends, Ella and Garrick to settle in. Now Mia’s mum, Lori has joined them, and they’re all enjoying village life. Mia’s keen to overcome her fear of water and with Garrick by her side, she’s confident about the future.

Until a fortune teller’s predictions give everyone cause for concern. Now Mia’s not so sure of anything, except that someone still wants her to leave. That makes her more determined to learn all she can about Matilda – and the codicil.

But as the mists roll in over the sea, are autumn winds making passions cool? And when more than one unexpected visitor gives Mia a shocking surprise, is everything about to change?


 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

I know I must sound like a broken record, but I can’t help it. Emily Harvale has really grabbed my heart with this little series! There is so much packed into the pages of this book from Mia’s uncertainty about her love life to the continued mystery of Mattie.

The book opens pretty much right where Part 2 ended. Mia is still worried and thinking about what the fortune teller had to share with her. Will her predictions become truth? And, if so, where does that leave her? She will find out soon enough with a few twists thrown in.  All of the regular characters are back, and I was so glad to be back in that charming village with them. I’m purposely not really delving deep into Mia’s relationship issues. I REALLY don’t want to ruin anything.

As with the earlier books, this one grabbed my attention from the very beginning…new clues emerge, and Harvale does an outstanding job of creating more questions as some appeared to be answered. Just like with all the other books, I’m so excited for the next one in the series. AND SURPRISE….Part 4 is already out!!!!

When Light Leads to You by C.R. Ellis Blog Tour with 5-Star Review & Giveaway (Signed copy of WHY STARS CHASE THE SUN & $10 Amazon Giftcard)

9 Aug

Today C.R. Ellis is here today to share her blog tour for WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: WHEN LIGHT LEADS LEAD TO YOU

Author: C.R. Ellis

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About WHEN LIGHT LEADS TO YOU

JASMINE
Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a crush on a boy. Eventually, they fell in love. They lived happily ever after.

Except they didn’t. Not even close.
I’m the girl, but that’s not my story.

Once upon a time, I fell for a boy, but we didn’t have a happily ever after. In fact, we crashed and burned. Which turned out to be for the best because it forced me to grow up and realize the only wedding bells in my future are the ones I orchestrate for clients.

For six years I’ve been perfectly content with meaningless, short-lived flings and running from anything that resembles a real relationship.

That boy?
He’s my best friend’s brother, and he’s no longer the boy I fell for—he’s a man I can’t stand.

Oh, and he’s also my new neighbor.

DEAN
Seemingly overnight, Jasmine Winters went from being my sister’s best friend to being the girl I couldn’t get enough of. But like most good things, it didn’t last.

Things fell apart so suddenly, I’m able to convince myself that summer never happened. At least, I was, until the only distance between us is a hallway instead of a time zone.

Six years ago, I let Jasmine slip through my fingers without an explanation because I was convinced we’d be better off apart. But now that we’re neighbors, our unspoken vow of apathy has unwittingly been shattered. Our exchanges consist of trading insults and icy stare downs. But in-between, I catch glimpses of the way she used to look at me, glimpses of the girl I fell for years ago.

Things are different now, though. This time… I won’t let her walk away without giving me answers.

When Light Leads to You is the second full-length novel of the Forget Me Knot series, but can be read as a standalone. **Due to strong language and the sexy times between these two, this book is recommended to readers ages 18 and up.**

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

To love is to live.

When Light Leads to You by C.R. Ellis is a wonderful addition to the series. This book is about Jasmine and Dean. What a story these two have to tell!!!

Jasmine always had a crush on Dean, but she never thought it would progress to anything more, especially since Dean was her best friend, Jade’s, brother. However, when she moved to New York, she and Dean spent some time together, and she thought her dream might finally come true. Her heart was crushed. Because of that, she made up her mind that no one would break her heart again, so she moved from one man to another, never developing anything serious, always protecting her heart. Years later, Dean is back in her life…in Jade’s wedding and now living right across the hall from her. Yeah, things are about to get REALLY complicated.

Ellis has such a talent of driving the storyline through her characters. What I admire so much is how she developed Jasmine’s character in the first book even though it was Jade’s story. I knew Jasmine had a lot going on underneath that confident exterior she shows to everyone. I was right. She was brokenhearted and full of anger. All that anger kept her from living the life she deserved or finding happiness with someone.

Dean was every woman’s dream. He oozed sex appeal, but he was also sweet and kind, always there for Jasmine. However, he also has baggage that affects his adult relationships. Jasmine was the one woman who broke through his walls, and he wasn’t sure whether to be angry at her or himself for allowing himself to believe a relationship with her would work year ago.. Each of them have trust issues, but Dean is more than willing to try with Jasmine. He just needs to convince her of that. Rest assured…it will be quite a feat to accomplish. I, for one, loved watching these two fall in love!

As with the first book, Ellis has given us just a glimpse of the characters in her new book. This one will be about Elliot and Bryce. The sneak peek at the end of this book made me even more excited.

I only recently discovered C.R. Ellis, literally in the past few months. I don’t say this flippantly…she has managed to become one of my very favorite writers. She knows how to weave a romance, but she knows how to do it while tugging on your heartstrings. If you love a romance with “all the feels,” do yourself a favor and discover this talented writer today!!



 

 

 

About C.R. Ellis:

Not So Nice Guy by R.S. Grey Release Day Launch

9 Aug

R.S. Grey’s newest romantic comedy, NOT SO NICE GUY, is available TODAY! Get your hands on it now!

About NOT SO NICE GUY

“Oh my god. Who is that?”

I get asked this question a lot.

“Oh him?” I reply. “That’s just Ian.”

Just Ian is the biggest understatement of the century. Just the Mona Lisa. Just the Taj Mahal. Just Ian, with his boring ol’ washboard abs and dime-a-dozen dimpled smile.

Just Ian is…just my best friend.

We’re extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at work assumes we’re a couple—that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher’s lounge that he’s single. Fair game. Suddenly, it’s open season on Ian.

He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine.

He’s turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into X-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.

I want to assume he’s playing a prank on me, just pushing my buttons like always—but when Ian lifts me onto the desk in my classroom and slides his hands up my skirt, he doesn’t leave a lot of room for confusion.

I’m a little scared of things going south, of losing my best friend because I can’t keep my hands to myself. So, I’m just going to back away and not return this earth-shattering kiss—oh who am I kidding?!

Goodbye Ian, ol’ buddy, ol’ pal!

Helloooo mister not so nice guy.

Free to Dream by Tracey Jerald Release Day Blitz with Excerpt, Book Trailer, & Giveaway

9 Aug

Today we have the release blitz for Tracey Jerald’s Free to Dream! We are so excited about this fantastic release—be sure to get your copy today!

Title: FREE TO DREAM

Author: Tracey Jerald

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Free To Dream:

Cassidy Freeman doesn’t believe dreams come true because every night her dreams trap her in a nightmare she barely escaped as a child. She maintains rigid control over all aspects of her life, giving the illusion she’s strong and confident. Allowing very few close enough to see the brave heart buried beneath, she’s convinced she’ll carry her burdens alone.

From the minute they met, Caleb Lockwood disrupted everything by destroying her sense of order. His patience, compassion and sensuality obliterated her defenses. It’s as if he knew her from the inside out.

Helping his younger brother hire a wedding planner shouldn’t have led to this. In just a few short days, Caleb’s learned untold secrets about his family – and about the Freemans. When he demands to meet them, he doesn’t expect the pull he feels towards the petite dynamo in front of him whom life has dealt an unspeakable hand.

With Caleb, Cassidy’s lost her semblance of control. Now, she’s not sure she wants it back. Not if giving it up means having a chance at something she never imagined.

Love.

Exclusive Excerpt:

That knocks the look off her face. She starts sputtering, “Wait, what? A date? You? Over the dress extravaganza? That’s your baby and you forgot about it?”

I groan. “I know. I have no idea how either happened, Em.” I lean forward and put my head in my hands, partially covering my ears.

I think I hear her ask “With whom,” but I deliberately ignore her until she reaches over and snags my hand, ripping it away from my head. Not for nothing, she takes a few pieces of my hair along with it. Bitch.

“With who?” Framing my face with her hands, I know there’s no avoiding the question this time.

I breathe in and out while glaring at my sister. I know my reaction isn’t helping this situation. I mean, it’s not a big deal, right? But even I know I’m lying to myself as my heart picks up speed when I say, “Caleb Lockwood.”

She looks at me. I stare back.

A moment passes. Then two.

I’m expecting an explosion. The howling laughter as her hands drop is not the one I anticipated.

“Are you kidding me?” she gets out, gasping for air. “The ‘former groom’ asked you out on a date? When?” She falls back on her chaise, clutching her stomach as she laughs, her long legs draped on either side.

I debate picking up one of her gorgeous throw pillows and smothering her with it.

“Are you done yet?” I sneer, all my earlier calm rapidly disappearing.

“Not even close. This beats anything I’ve ever done by a mile, sister. You will never again be able to hold anything against me. This is my perma get out of jail free card.”

Just wait until she realizes I have photo evidence I’ve been holding onto. Forget about it. I’m a big girl. I’ll figure this out on my own.

Em is still laughing when I stand up to stomp out of her office. “No! Wait Cass, hold on,” she pleads, still chuckling. My hands are holding my phone and planner so tightly, my knuckles are turning white. “Please, Cassy, sit with me.”

Pausing, because Em pulled out a name only she ever gets away with calling me, I plop back down next to her, setting my stuff to my side on the chaise.

Em takes one of my hands and gives it a squeeze. “What are you more upset about, Cass? The schedule snafu, a date in general, or with Caleb specifically?”

“I have to choose?” I ask her in return. My voice is rich with derision.

“No, but it helps to have a place to start.”

Sighing, I squeeze our joined hands. “I think it’s because he throws me so off balance, I can’t quite catch myself. I mean, a few days ago, I thought he was getting married to two other men! He came to see me, took me out for coffee, and the next thing I know, I’m agreeing to a date.” I catch Em’s grin. I release one of her hands and start to pick at an imaginary piece of lint on my jeans. “I didn’t even think at what might be on deck. It was like I knew we didn’t have anything important going on for his brother, so it was okay to accept. What if we had another wedding that night? It’s bad enough it’s the dress extravaganza.”

She’s quiet for a few minutes. “What’s your heart telling you?”

“About Caleb?”

“No, about Santa Claus.” She rolls her eyes.

I narrow my eyes at her through my lashes.

Check out the trailer:

 

About Tracey:

Tracey Jerald knew she was meant to be a writer when she would re-write the ending of books in her head on her bike when she was a young girl growing up in southern Connecticut. It wasn’t long before she was typing alternate endings and extended epilogues “just for fun”.

After college in Florida, where she obtained a degree in Criminal Justice swearing she saw things she’ll never quite believe and never quite forget, Tracey traded the world of law and order for IT. Her work for a world-wide internet startup transferred her to Northern Virginia where she met her husband in what many call their own happily ever after. They have one son.

When she’s not busy with her family or writing, Tracey can be found in her home in north Florida drinking coffee, reading, training for a runDisney event, or feeding her addiction to HGTV.
