But as the champagne corks pop, and the tinsel sparkles, Uncle T has news of his own to share…and it could change Daisy’s life forever…




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Four Christmases and a Secret by Zara Stoneley is chick lit at its best!!!!

It is described as “Bridget Jones meets the Hallmark Channel,” and that is a perfect analogy! The books begins many years ago when Daisy is at the annual Christmas party hosted by Uncle T. She shares a kiss with the boy who is her nemesis, Ollie Cartwright. Years later, she finds herself sharing a living space with him. She discovers he might not be as bad as she always thought he was, and she may be in danger of losing her heart to him. 

Daisy and Ollie’s mothers have been best friends since they were infants but with a touch of competition between them. Daisy has had to endure hearing how wonderful Ollie is every single year. She hasn’t seen him for years, and when she sees him, he makes her even madder. Not only is he successful but gorgeous too. I could empathize with Daisy. It seems Ollie has it all, and she has no job or boyfriend. She isn’t quite sure how to change things even though she is determined to change her life. 

I loved Ollie too. I saw him in a different way than Daisy did in the beginning. He is gorgeous and smart, but he is also kind. He loves Daisy for who she is. He doesn’t want her to change who she is. I enjoyed watching these two finally realize they were truly soulmates. 

Even though, a lot of the story centers around Christmas, it is a story of second chances, love and hope. Stoneley really makes her secondary characters bring this story to life, especially Uncle T. He really is the person who moves the book along. 

If you like rom-coms and books that really tug at your heartstrings, you can’t go wrong with this one.

Cover Reveals · Romance

Demise of a Self-Centered Playboy by Piper Rayne Cover Reveal

 




You might be wondering how you’ll know when your playboy ways are coming to an end. For some it might be an unexpected pregnancy (ahem… you know who), for others it might be finally landing the one woman you’ve always wanted (cough… I won’t mention any names). For me, it was the death of my mentor and the subsequent reading of their will.
The signs were there, they always are. But I didn’t notice them until it was too late, and my demise was complete.
Demise Sign #1– You find yourself thrust into the land of responsibility and you don’t immediately hightail it out of town.
Demise Sign #2– Despite being stuck with the world’s biggest Jekyll & Hyde, some sadistic part of you actually enjoys spending time with her.
Demise Sign #3– Your family suddenly stops wanting to weigh in on every decision in your life.
Demise Sign #4– Somehow you end up being the voice of reason in your tumultuous partnership.
Demise Sign #5 –You start thinking of other people before yourself.
Demise Sign #6– You agree to put yourself in the middle of an Alaskan reality TV show that has both of you sleeping in the same tent.
Demise Complete.

Neutral Grounds by Jiffy Kate Cover Reveal

They say opposites attract and that couldn’t be truer when it comes to CeCe and Shep. But what happens when the two most anti-marriage people in the French Quarter start enjoying the act? 

Release Date: October 10

 

 

CeCe 



I never planned on getting married. After my dad deserted my family the day before my tenth birthday, and I watched my mother fall to pieces over him, I decided it wasn’t worth the heartache. Then Shepard Rhys-Jones, who ghosted me two years ago, declares he needs to marry someone to claim his inheritance, and I drunkenly offer myself up as his wife. 

 

 

He was the best I’ve ever had and now, he’s all mine… but only for the next year. 
 

 

 

Shep

 

 

I never planned on getting married. It was one business transaction I had no desire to close. Yet, here I am… sitting in a bar in New Orleans… seriously considering making CeCe Calhoun my wife. 
If we can manage to stay married for a year, I’ll be one hundred million dollars richer and finally have the freedom to forge my own path, separate from the Rhys-Jones name. 

 

 

She’s the only woman I’ve struggled to forget, and she’s finally mine. 
For now.

 

 

Is it possible for this fake marriage to be real?
