Edie Brownes Cottage By The Sea

Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea

by Jane Linfoot 

Synopsis:

Those who don’t jump will never fly…

Hurtling through the sky was supposed to be Edie Browne’s flight of independence. But when she falls head over champagne bucket while celebrating her successful landing, her life is changed in an instant. 
 
But starting over has its benefits, and as Edie relearns the basics under the watchful eye of her Aunty Josie and an entire Cornish village of new friends and neighbours, she finds love and joy she never could have imagined in the unlikeliest of places… 

Come home to St Aidan and Periwinkle Cottage for a romance full of love, laughter and friends for life!

 

Add a heading (5)

 

I knew I was going to enjoy this book and love the main character from the very first pages of the book. Edie had just gotten out of a relationship and was beginning a new job and a new flat. To cap this off, she decided to skydive. The skydive was her epic achievement. However, her life is changed in an instant, and she is on a journey that she never anticipated.

 

Edie returns to her Cornish village determined to get her life back. She thinks this will help her begin her life anew again. Little did she realize it, but it would be the start of a whole new life, one far better than she ever imagined.  She might finally find the happiness she has been looking for, and she might possibly find true love in the process!

 

I loved the characters as well as the writing. I could tell Edie was a fighter from the beginning. Come on…this is a woman who displayed her independence by jumping out of an airplane. I’m certainly not that brave. When she had her stroke, she worked hard and diligently to reclaim her life. If that isn’t some kind of heroine, I don’t know what is. If ever an individual deserved a HEA, it was her. So, seeing her fall in love and find someone worthy of her was just icing on the cake.

 

In addition, I loved the other characters as well. They have their own stories to tell, and the author accomplishes that through Edie’s voice. By the way, I thought that was brilliant.

 

It is very well-written book, and I love the author’s style of writing. It really pulled me into the story through her descriptions. I felt like I was everywhere Edie was, from the skydiving to the beautiful Cornish village!!!! I also liked the way she began each chapter with the date, and the number of days since her accident and her epic achievement which meant so much in her recovery. Jane Linfoot tied that up quite nicely in the very beginning of the book with her definitions of epic and achievements. That really is the crux of the book…epic achievements and their place in our lives.

 

If you like your romance with laughter and friendship mixed in, not to mention an absolutely beautiful setting, you don’t want to miss reading Edie Browne’s Cottage by the Sea!!! It’s a perfect summer read!!!!!

Author Bio 

Edie Browne - Author Photo (1)

Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.

Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feelgood books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own storylines.

Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.

Her latest books include a series of stand-alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse, an imprint of Harper Collins.

Coming Home To Wishington Bay

Coming Home To Wishington Bay

by Maxine Morrey

 

Synopsis:

Home is where the heart is…

Holly doesn’t have time for a holiday this year. But when her job threatens to send her over the brink, her boss insists she take a sabbatical. So she packs her bags and escapes to her beloved grandmother Gigi’s house on Wishington Bay, which has sat empty since Gigi passed away.
 
But Holly’s dreams of a coastal escape take an unexpected turn. Holly didn’t expect to spend time with any man this summer – let alone an Aussie Adonis…but when she meets her next door neighbour Gabe and his little dog Bryan, it’s clear her quiet summer of strolling along the sand and wandering through the seaside village’s tiny streets on her own will come with a hefty dose of distraction.
 
With a summer to fill and Gigi’s wonderful and surprising house to sort through, Holly knew it would be a summer packed with old memories. She just didn’t expect to make so many new ones…
 
Coming Home to Wishington Bay is the new gorgeous uplifting rom-com from Maxine Morrey, perfect for fans of Sarah Morgan and Tilly Tennant!

 




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

As the cover says, Coming Home to Wishington Bay is “an uplifting rom-com,” and it’s a great one at that…a perfect read for the beginning of summer!!!!

Holly is ALWAYS busy, working herself to the bone, and especially after a bad breakup with her ex. Her boss insists that she take some time off to re-group. She knows the perfect place, the place she always felt safe, happy, and loved…her grandmother’s home. It has been empty since her grandmother’s death. She is looking forward to some rest and relaxation. All that is turned on its head when she finds a strange man outside her window on a ladder. Turns out, he is her neighbor, the one her grandmother, Gigi, was always talking about. What turns out to be a rough introduction soon turns into something magical, something Holly definitely wasn’t expecting!

Holly and Gabe are PERFECT for one another. Both are independent and both can be sassy, especially with each other. However, they really come to like and respect one another. Their road to a real romance is a bumpy one, but it’s one I’m so glad I got to take with them. There are some funny, sweet, and romantic moments. Those three are my favorite ingredients for a good rom-com!

On top of a great storyline and a great cast of characters, the setting was just gorgeous. The writer did a great job of describing everything. I felt as I was there and a part of the story!

I highly recommend reading if you are a fan of rom-coms!!!!

Coming Home To Wishington - Maxine Morrey - bio pic b&w

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.

As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.

In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale‘.

Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.

Bridesmaids

by Zara Stoneley

Synopsis

Meet Rachel, the beautiful bride with BIG plans for the perfect day! The venue is a castle and the dress is designer.  It’s just a shame her husband is a rat.

Maddie and Sally have only one thing in common – they both love the same man!
 
Beth is a newly single mum with a mystery baby daddy.  Surely the father isn’t someone the girls all know?
 
And then there’s Jane, the glue holding them all together, but being dumped doesn’t make her the happiest bridesmaid…especially with gorgeous flatmate Freddie complicating things.

Will the bride say, ‘I Do!’?  Or will her bridesmaids save the day…and find love along the way?    

The most hilarious, feel-good rom com of the year!




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Bridesmaids is a funny story about friendship and love!

 

I knew right from the first chapter this was going to be a book I enjoyed. Jane is absolutely hilarious. It begins she says with a lie she told her best friend, Rachel. You see, Rachel, is getting married, and Jane isn’t really about marriage these days. Her ex-fiance dumped her by text while she was at her hen party. However, she adores Rachel, so she decides to keep her honest opinion to herself even though Jane isn’t Rachel’s fiance’s biggest fan AT ALL!!! This is the beginning of a book full of humor, love, friendship, and secrets…and maybe betrayal! It culminates in the best ending I have come across in quite a while.

 

Jane, Rachel, Sally, Beth, and Maddie have been friends since they were young. Life has taken them all in different directions except Jane and Rachel. They have remained close. Each woman is very different. Rachel is the sweetheart! She has the biggest heart, forgiving others for the wrongs they have done. Beth is a single mother who is hiding a GIGANTIC secret. She won’t divulge who the father is. Maddie thought she had her life planned out when she was young, but she discovers she doesn’t. Sally is the one who has to be in control, and by the way, Maddie and Sally are in love with the same man. He is married to one of them. As you can imagine, this is a book filled with drama, yet there is also quite a bit of laughter as well. Our heroine, Jane, is the one who holds these women together. She has a problem of her own…she may be falling for her flatmate. All your questions will be answered, and all their secrets will be revealed. Read on to find out how it all pans out!

 

Not only is this a romantic comedy, but it’s about friendship and how it changes over the years. These women knew each other like no one else when they were young, and now, each have their own secrets they are keeping from one another. Can they find that special bond between them again? This is a gem of a book about love, the changes life throws at you, and lasting friendship!!!!

Amazing Grace by Kim Nash Blog Tour with Review

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace

by Kim Nash

Synopsis

She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…

Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted. 

Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.

Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks… 

Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves. 

So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness? 

A funny, feel good romance about finding your own path and changing your life for the better – readers of Cathy Bramley, Jill Mansell and Josie Silver will love this uplifting read.




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Amazing Grace is a beautiful, uplifting book about hope and second chances!

Grace was living the dream, at least she thought she was. She had a wonderful home, a husband, and a son. Her life was turned upside down when she discovered her husband’s infidelity. Grace changed so much from who she was at the beginning of the book. Through much soul-searching, she forges a new path to discover the woman she was meant to be and possibly finding real love!

Vinnie and Grace are two individuals who deserve happiness. Yet, their journey wasn’t an easy one. People and secrets present quite the obstacles. However, it’s those obstacles that make their relationship even stronger.

While this is a love story between a man and a woman, it’s also a love story between a parent and a child, and the bond mothers share with their children ALWAYS…no matter whether they are still here on this earth or not. Readers will understand what I’m talking about when they see the relationship Grace had with her mother. It was just beautiful!

If you are looking for a truly remarkable book that will leave you with a warmness in your heart, you can’t go wrong with this one!!!!

Manhattan fashionista Kelly Quinn thought she’d left her upstate New York town far behind . . . until the Seventh Avenue expat returns home to revamp her grandmother’s consignment shop into an upscale boutique—and unwittingly sets a trend for murder . . .

After her rising career as a Manhattan buyer is derailed, Kelly has mixed feelings about relocating back to Lucky Cove, in spite of her big plans for the soon-to-be-renamed Curated by Kelly Resale Boutique. What’s left of her luck starts running out when a customer puts on a black lace dress that triggers visions of someone being murdered. As if the haunted “Murder Dress” isn’t enough to kill business, the psychic’s doppelganger cousin has just been found bludgeoned to death.

Was Maxine LeMoyne the real target or was it a case of mistaken murder? With some creepy pre-Halloween bargain hunters walking the night and Kelly suddenly a person of interest, a second murder rocks the close-knit town. Now Kelly could be the one who ends up talking to dead people when she’s stalked by a killer determined to take her out in high style . . .




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

A great start to a new cozy series!!!

Kelly Quinn finds herself back home after her grandmother passes away. Her hometown is a far cry from Manhattan, but she has plans to revamp her grandmother’s consignment shop, even giving it a new name. The last thing she expects is to be in the middle of a complicated murder investigation of not one but two murders. Not only is she a person of interest, but she is also in danger. On top of that….her uncle wants her to sell him the shop. Yes, Kelly’s life just got really complicated.

I enjoyed everything about the story. It was well-written, and the author threw in twists and turns that kept me guessing. There was also a great cast of secondary characters as well and a possible future romance for Kelly. Kelly also does some maturing throughout the book as well. She begins to realize what is important in life. All of these components combined perfectly for a great cozy mystery. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series!

The Uncompromising Lord Flint

by Virginia Heath

Imprisoned by her past- Set free by her enemy!

Charged with high treason, Lady Jessamine Fane is under the watchful eye of icily calm Lord Peter Flint. It’s a task this spy won’t be swayed from, no matter how alluring his prisoner! Only it’s not long before Flint realises that tenacious Jess hides a lifetime of pain. With so much at stake, can he afford to take a chance on their powerful attraction?



Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

The Uncompromising Lord Flint is a great addition to an already great series!!!! It is the story of romance between two very unlikely people.

Lady Jessamine is a prisoner who is accused of treason and is on her way back to England to face them. Flint is the man who in charge of bringing her back. All the evidence points to her guilt, but things aren’t always how they appear as Flint will soon discover.

One of my favorite things about Virginia Heath are her characters, and I loved both Jessamine and Flint. Both are fiery and have been burned in the past, so they have some trust issues. However, they can’t stop the attraction that they feel towards one another. Both will do what they can to fight it, but thankfully, they won’t succeed on that point.

Heath always creates a female lead that is strong, intelligent, and beautiful in a time period in which women weren’t seen more than a possession by men. Jessamine is no different…she isn’t only a survivor but a fighter! Flint, like other male leads in Heath’s novels, respect the women they love and treat them as partners. I have come to love that about her writing.

The storyline is full of adventure and romance that sizzles with chemistry. The setting for this one is a bit different. Much of it is on a ship and not in places like grand homes or ballrooms. That makes it unique. I also have come to appreciate the way in which Heath gives readers both POVs, but it isn’t done in alternating chapters. She is one of those rare writers who can flawlessly seam that into the storyline itself.

If you are looking for a romance with fiery characters, sizzling chemistry, and grand adventure, look no further than this book!

Another Kind of Magic (Caitlyn Book 3) 

by Elzabeth Davies

Another Kind of Magic

Synopsis:

“I am a cat. But I am no ordinary cat. I am a witch’s familiar. I am also a woman, with a woman’s heart and a woman’s frailty.”

Nearly two hundred years have passed since Caitlyn was trapped by supernatural forces and black magic, and she has known many mistresses. This time, the witch she is enthralled to is Joan, wife of Llewelyn, Prince of Wales.

At first, this mistress appears no different to any of the others Caitlyn has served – until Llewelyn captures William de Braose, and Joan falls in love, risking everything, including Caitlyn, to fulfil her desire.

Caitlyn, meanwhile, has her own cross to bear in the form of the gallant and reckless Hugh of Pembroke…




Christie’s Review

4.5 STARS

Another Kind of Magic by Elizabeth Davies is the third book in the series, and I have to say my favorite so far! It has been almost two hundred years since Caitlyn was a victim of black magic and forced to be a familiar to witches. The witches she has been forced to be with haven’t always been the best to be with. This time her mistress is Joan, wife of Llewelyn, who happens to be the Prince of Wales. What is so unusual is that Joan has the attention of William de Braose, and it appears that she is falling in love with him. To make matters worse, she is willing to risk everything to be with him and that include Caitlyn’s life.

With every book, Davies has increased the action and suspense. She has had me on the edge of my seat more than once throughout reading the series. I didn’t think she could top that after reading the second book, but I was wrong. Sometimes when reading a series, I notice with each book, they may lack some of the luster they had in earlier ones, but that isn’t the case with this book. She just continues to add more layers and mystery. This is also a more emotional read for me too. As the title says, this is another kind of magic. This one is the magic of love, and Caitlyn may finally get the man who truly understands and loves her.

I know I sound like a broken record, but the ending of the book was another surprise. As always, I love the historical note at the end. I love how she combines fiction with actual characters who existed in the real world. That always adds more depth to the story. This was another winner from Elizabeth Davies.
