Tumble” is the first book in the Dogwood Lane series, and will be release on February 26th in Paperback, Audiobook (narrated by Aiden Snow and Summer Morton) and Kindle Unlimited format.

Now… Here is the synopsis and cover. Enjoy!


Synopsis

TUMBLE COVER WEBAfter being burned by her dream job in New York City, sports journalist Neely Kimber suddenly finds herself jobless and paying a long-overdue visit to her hometown in Tennessee. Her plan? Relax, reset, and head back up the corporate ladder. There’s just one unexpected step. Neely’s back in Dogwood Lane for barely a day when she sees the man she ran from nine years ago: the bad boy next door who was her first kiss, her first love, and her first heartbreak.

Devoted single dad Dane Madden knows he hurt Neely in the worst way. He’s got a lot to make up for. And as passionate as their reconnection is, it’s a lot to hope for. Having her back in his arms feels so right. But falling in love all over again with a woman who wants to live a world away is bound to go so wrong.

What’s it going to take for Neely to give him—and Dogwood Lane—just one more chance?

Synopsis

Thread Front CoverHonesty is the best policy. Isn’t it?

What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?

Prospero is prepared to tell Leonie most of his past – if he can find her – but one of his secrets could send her running again. Another could destroy any future they might have. And one could kill her. Dare he risk it?

Leonie is terrified of the consequences of sharing any of her past with anyone. But not even Leonie knows the secrets that her very existence contains.

Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie and they could tear the world apart. Who does he turn to, and who should he share them with? If he tells the wrong person he could seal not just Leonie’s death warrant but those of millions more.

And no one has told Leonie the mystery of her necklace. When she discovers that, will she sacrifice everything and risk all that Gabriel has been working for?

Author Bio

Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.

Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance.  Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun.  When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club.  Target shooting only, honest.  Nothing to worry about.

She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary.  It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.

My Review

This standalone novel is about Melissa, a thirty-something year old lifestyle journalist. With a current topic and a strong and relatable main character, this book was a lovely romance comedy that had me glued to the almost 200 pages book, as I tried to find out what Melissa would decide and how her life would run.

P1070165As we follow Melissa’s life and how connected she is to the online world and see her disconnect so she can go find love the old fashion way, I found myself relating to her. She as a strong character with a lot of relatable traits in her personality that made me see a older version of myself in some bits of her. So it was a book that definitely grabbed my attention from page one.

It is a modern view of life, with all of the technology and the apps, some people tend to lose themselves in that cyber world. And I found that it was quite amazing and refreshing to read when the plot takes the “one month of being free from social media” road. It brought some added tension and funny moments that we would all deal with if we did that too.

Of course that it would be a romance novel if Melissa didn’t meet some love interest. And there comes all figuring out love, attraction, relationships, humor, excitement and emotion. And I loved that aspect of the plot too. All the characters that we are introduced in this book played their role and were well written and made the storyline made sense and added some complexity and reality to it.

Overall, I enjoyed this book a lot. The author’s writing style is what made the book so attractive. The plot was fun and intriguing, but it was Victoria Cooke’s writing that made it all come together beautifully.

My Review

P1070276After reading the first book, and once I found out about this one, I was very excited about knowing more. I really loved the first book, and I wasn’t surprised when I loved this one too. I’m a fan of historical romances and Rachel Brimble created an amazing story with descriptions that made the book come to life, and that just makes everything so much enjoyable.

Although it’s a book that is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone and recommend you to read the first book so you have a feel for the era and setting, as well as the community, because they you will enjoy this book even more. Nevertheless, I garante that no matter if you read both books or just this one, you will have will have so much fun with the characters you are going to meet.

P1070266The characters interactions and the relationships were fun to follow and feel like we are a part of the community. The main characters had strong personalities and I could empathize with Esther and feel a connection to her because of her strong convictions and beliefs. Both her and Lawrence had pasts that brought some emotional issues, but that also made them believable characters.

The plot was exciting and intriguing, and because of the setting and the well written characters, and the amazing and eye-catching cover (It’s gorgeous!), this book is one I highly recommend. It had romance, friendship, social and political aspects, and a good balance of every light and dark theme and moment.

It was an exciting book that left me wishing for a next book right this moment, because I loved the world that the author created. That been said, of course I recommend this book!

“The Talisman – Molly’s Story” Review

Hello Friends!

So, I started physical therapy this week and I have family here so I’ve been crazy busy. Plus I have to get used to the new schedule with the therapy, that’s mostly why I’m only posting right now.

Today’s review is of “The Talisman – Molly’s Story” by Eliza J Scott and it’s the 2nd book in the Life On The Moors series and was release yesterday, the 4th February 2019.

Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Eliza for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.


Blurb

20180121_200226Molly’s dream of taking over her childhood home at Withrin Hill Farm with husband Pip and their three children has finally come true. And, as they settle into the stunning Georgian farmhouse, with their plans to diversify into glamping nicely taking shape, the family couldn’t be happier.

But tragedy suddenly strikes, and Molly’s world is turned upside down.

Heartbroken and devastated, she struggles to face each day. True to form, her fiercely loyal best friends, Kitty and Violet, rally round offering love and support, but Molly doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to smile again. Until the day a tall, dark stranger with twinkly eyes arrives…

 Follow Molly’s story in book 2 of the Life on the Moors Series set in Lytell Stangdale, a picture-perfect village in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors, where life is anything but quiet.

A heart-warming story of love, friendship and hope.

My Review

As someone that has read the first book and quite enjoyed it, I was quite intrigued about this book, and I must say I loved it just like I did the first one. It was another compelling, relatable and emotional story. And although it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend you read both and have the full experience and get involved in the community and the characters.

P1070273The book follows Molly and all of the ups and downs in life. It’s about family, love and loss, and it does show us some of Molly’s past so we can fully understand her and connect with her because of her past and present. I loved that I was able to feel empathy with her.

But it’s not only Molly I liked, all the characters that we get to met for the first time and others that we met in book one, that’s why I recommend for you guys to read the first one as well. And get ready to go on an adventure with well written characters through a plot that will make you emotional, laugh, cry, fall in love, feel heartbroken… And everything is a perfect combination and made the book flow and be very enjoyable.

I won’t talk about the book in any particular aspects because I hate spoilers and you guys should enter this book with your head blank so you can really enjoy the story and even connect with Molly and fully understand the struggles she will go through and all the happy moments and funny ones too.

Overall, this is the kind of story that will take you on an journey. A book about friendship, family and life in general. The author made me keep intrigued and invested in the story.

“Love & Other Things” Review

Hello Friends!

Today is a very special day and I’m not saying that because it’s Friday, but because it’s release day!

If you have been following me on Instagram and here on my blog, you may know that I have been super supportive of my dear friend’s Chelsea Girard. And I have been supportive because her books are amazing and I’m so proud of her and she deserves all the love in the world.

Today is the release of her 5th published novel called “Love & Other Things“. I had the pleasure to read it and I am now, here, reviewing it. So I want to thank Chelsea for allowing me this chance.


Synopsis

43794728All her life, Rylee has only known doctor visits, medicine and a life of being told “everything will be okay.” After being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, her life is turned upside down once again when she starts to not only lose weight and her hair but she also starts to lose herself in the process.When she overhears a conversation from her doctor that she is getting worse, she will do anything to live the last days she has and to experience love and other things.That is, until she meets Owen.With both of them wanting to run away and a bucket list to be filled, Owen and Rylee take on the world one adventure at a time but this adventure comes with a few twists and hidden lies.

About Author

Screenshot_2018-10-19 Chelsea Girard no Instagram “HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY TO MY THIRD CHILD, A Delicate Flower 😭❤️🤣 This b[...]I review for professional book publishers such as Simon and Schuster Canada  and Hachette Books. I am always looking for a new book to review.

I tend to draw to novels that draw away from love stories and more towards suspense and personal experiences shared from one person to the next. I love books that make you feel for the character and give you a sense of fulfillment when you claim their happiness as you’re own.

I am always busy with school, work and with my family but I always leave time out of my day to relax with a book and some tea. For me, it’s a form of escape from the world that I am surrounded by, where I can escape to a world where I can draw a connection to the book characters and their stories.

My Review

P1070268First of all let me say that this book is a short story. That been said, to me it was like a rollercoaster until the very end. It was an emotional story that touched my heart, and being a rollercoaster kind of experience, it left me extremely excited and emotional and it was a quick experience, but one that was amazing, bittersweet and memorable.

There are a lot of things I could say about this book, but will probably forget half of them because they could never fit in one review only, and also I don’t want to spoil anything. So let me just say that reading about Rylee’s story touched my heart and reminded me of all of my family members that have dealt with cancer. And believe me, I cried while reading this book because I really connected with Rylee.

P1070248There is a bit of mystery in this book and that kept me going and trying to figure things out before the information was revealed. And until the very last page, the very last line, I was at the edge of my seat, waiting for each word and each new piece to put the puzzle back together.

Then there is the fact that we really get to experience life through Rylee’s eyes, and we get to read her thoughts and feel what she was feeling, at least to a certain degree of course. That’s why I felt connected with her. She is such a relatable character, strong minded, and honest. So I was sad for her and once I got to know her more, I was even more sad and mad at the world. Just like if she was a family member of mine.

And, there is a romance. Owen comes into the story and makes everything better. Every moment that Rylee was with him made me happy. And of course they are together on this journey and that just made me smile and excited about them having some happiness.

P1070244The book is full of characters that are just intriguing. Rylee’s moms are awesome, I love them and I wish I could read about their love story. The doctors were kind and I love that too. I have been to a lot of doctor’s appointment with my grandparents and oncologists were always the ones that made me scared, but the ones I meet were kind and sometimes funny and put people at ease, so I love seeing that kindness in this book.

Overall, I love the book. It still maintained Chelsea Girard’s melody in her writing style. I just loved it. Despite wanting more, I understand that it had to be a novella, it had to be this way and it had to follow this journey. So I applaud the author for her amazing abilities and for creating such powerful and emotional story and an amazing set of characters.

“Death of Dreams” Review

Hello Friends!

I hope you are all having a good Wednesday so far.

Today I bring you a review of a poetry book called “Death of Dreams“, by Shruti Agrawal. And I want to thank the author for the ecopy in exchange for my honest and personal review.


Synopsis

“Death Of Dreams” is a cluster of quotes & poems. It is deep dive into emotions, empathy, acceptance, healing and insights into a different perspective towards life. The book embraces you in silence and stillness of thoughts. The book is an attempt to connect to souls, to reflect upon them, unbiased and together embrace a new beginning and a beautiful journey called life.

Purchase Link – Amazon

Don’t forget to check out the author’s Instagram  page for updates. And don’t forget to add the book to your Goodreads TBR.


My Review

I haven’t review many poetry books, but it’s a genre that I like to read, especially when I feel a connection to the poems I’m reading. In Shruti Agrawal’s book we can find poems, thoughts, quotes… It’s a very beautiful book that talks about life and the emotions we all have, so it talks about love, acceptance, self-reflection, healing and an overall connection with the reader and this thought provoking reading.

Personally, I could connect emotional in a deep level to some of the poems. Not all of them, because some were stronger to me because I could see myself in them, but those I didn’t relate to, I could still understand and feel empathy for the person that does feel that. So, even thought my personal experiences made a connection with some poems, my empathy could connect with everything, and that’s good.

p1070256There were some poems that I didn’t connect based on a past experience, but because they made me think about what it was talking about and that was something I also liked about the book, it make us thing. The reflection aspect of the book is one of the elements I really loved because it meant even more to me than the connection I felt with my past and experiences.

Like I said before, this book talks about different perspectives in life. And the authors is young, so to see the depth in the poems and the insights in them, makes me applaud her for her beautiful, simple and magical writing, and I hope she keeps going so we – the readers – can enjoy more books.

Overall, I loved the book and was very happy in the end, although I would love to read a couple more pages of poems, because I would love to keep reflecting and take a journey inside myself as I read more poems and thoughts.

Synopsis

Emma White knew she wouldn’t get a happily ever after. Even after Natan got them both out of his parents’ house and away from his manipulative sister, a warning hung in the back of her mind. Threatening their tentative peace with something she couldn’t name or define – a voice Natan insisted was only a ghost from her past.

He’s coming. Can you hear the footsteps?

But it wasn’t a ghost, and she didn’t react fast enough.

When Natan Silverman vanishes, leaving behind a wrecked, bloodied apartment, Emma knows who did it even before the call comes. A man she hoped she’d never hear from again, who she had prayed was dead. The one person on earth that she’s always feared more than she fears herself: the man who raised her. The weapon’s creator.

And now he’s taken Natan.

The choice she is given is simple: return to being her master’s weapon, or allow him to break Natan the same way he destroyed her. With the help of a bitter ex-soldier who seems more shadow than man, Emma attempts the impossible. She must outsmart the person that taught her how to be a hurricane.
