New Review: Redemption: Part Six by Kate Benson


Redemption: Part 6 

by Kate Benson



***This book contains material intended for mature readers***


I said I’d never let things go this far, but a taken heart can also be a deceptive one.
Being with Bella has turned my life upside down.
Now, I’m on the verge of losing everything I’ve ever worked for, including the love of my life.
I’ve fought for her, bled myself into us.
The board has come for us, our stalker is waiting, and the media continues to fuel the fire.
What began with a chance of redemption will end the same.
I think I always knew it would.
I just never thought I’d be fighting for her redemption instead of mine.


Despite my insecurities, Adam has never left my side.
Now, he’s facing the loss of his company, of everything because of our relationship.
For the first time, my trust isn’t enough to save us and my options are down to one.
He won’t like it. In fact, he’s already forbidden it.
However, this is one time I can’t obey him no matter how badly I want to.
The day I met him, Adam gave me a chance at redemption.
In the end, I’ll do whatever it takes, including breaking my own heart, to give him the same.

Christie’s Review


Great ending to a fascinating series!!!!

Book 6, as with all the other books in the series, picks up right where book 5 ended. Kate Benson has steadily built the suspense throughout the series as she continued to deepen the relationship between Isabella and Adam. She gave her readers a very satisfying ending, answering all of the lingering questions.

I am a fan of a series as long as the storyline continues to be fresh and characters still have a story to tell. Benson definitely kept this one fresh with the suspense. Both Adam and Isabella changed throughout each book, especially Adam. I remember when I first was introduced to him, he seemed a bit cold. However, he was anything but that. I loved seeing him open up more with each book. Isabella was always steadfast, loving him no matter what. This couple definitely deserved a HEA.

I have always thought Benson had a magical way with words, and with each book, she continues to prove that time and time again. This talented writer can move me with her words in her acknowledgement and dedication in the beginning of the book. Her characters are very real, and they are a very real part of who she is. That is quite evident in everything she writes. I just wish I could live inside her mind for just a little bit!!!! If you haven’t discovered her books, you really are missing a treat!

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane by Emily Harvale Blog Tour with Review

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane

Christmas on Lily Pond Lane

by Emily Harvale



Snow is falling in Little Pondale, lights are twinkling and the smell of pine trees and roasting chestnuts fills the air …

But Mia Ward is in a bit of a jam. She’d planned to rent out Corner Cottage for Christmas but thanks to best friend, Ella Swann, it’s double-booked. Now Mia’s got to let one ‘party’ down, or find another cottage – fast.

Best friends and single mums, Cathy Cole and Christy Franks want their kids to have an old-fashioned Christmas. Ice-skating, carol singing, making decorations, and tobogganing are on their list of festive fun and Little Pondale is the perfect place. Especially as it has no mobile phone reception. That will make it harder for Cathy to be found.

City banker, Leo Hardman is wondering if renting a cottage for Christmas as an anniversary surprise for his parents, was such a good idea. Little Pondale may be where his parents met, but his mum doesn’t seem pleased to be back, and his brother, Hal isn’t happy that the village is so tiny and only has one pub.

Meanwhile, Jenny Lake is settling in at her cousin’s bakery, having left her (broken) heart in Florence, but Christmas was never her favourite time of year. And Reverend Glen Fox has taken over at St Michael and All Angels. He’s glad it’s a temporary post because village life is not for him.

But luckily, for locals and visitors alike, there’s a sleigh-load of Christmas magic heading for Lily Pond Lane; enough to put a sparkle in everyone’s festive season. Although Christmas may not go quite as each of them has planned.

Christie’s Review


Emily Harvale has again given her fans another great addition to her wonderful, heartwarming series. I was so glad to see that there was a Christmas addition!!

Harvale returns with some of my favorites, Mia, Ella, and Jet while meeting new ones. I have to be honest and say though, I was most curious of where Mia and Jet’s relationship is going. These two have had quite the journey, and Harvale exceeded all my expectations!

Harvale has always captured my heart with her storyline and her characters, but this one was really special. She truly captured the Christmas spirit. It certainly put me in the “holiday spirit.” She does such a great job of creating such a detailed setting, and I can always picture it so clearly in my mind.

One of the reasons I love this series so much is because I feel like I have gotten to know the characters I met from the very first book. They have grown and changed so much. I feel like I’m catching up with old friends. As always, I will be looking forward to returning in the future and seeing where the characters will take me!
