Moonlight Over Muddleford Cove by Kim Nash **Book Review** @rararesources @kimthevookworm

Happy Sunday and happy Easter to those who celebrate!

This was such a fun book that made me smile and want to go to the beach! 🏖

Moonlight Over Muddleford Cove

When thirty-four-year-old Nellie Wagstaff loses her job and discovers her fiancé is a cheating scumbag in a single day, she feels like the world has come crashing down. And that’s before the solicitor’s letter, along with a request to visit a place she hasn’t thought about for a very long time.

Heartbroken, Nellie escapes to the beautiful seaside town of Muddleford in Dorset, where she discovers she’s inherited more than she ever bargained for. Nellie never knew why her mother stopped talking to her sister, but now childhood memories of Muddleford come flooding back: long hot summers, the sea glistening beyond the sandy cove… and a stolen kiss with a boy called Jack.

Jack, now a devilishly handsome vet, has the local pet owners swooning over him, and as Nellie and he become close once more, and she gets used to gossiping with the locals and sipping wine at her beach hut with sand between her toes, she’s sure she can feel sparks flying once more. But just as she thinks she might be able to open her heart again, her newest frenemy, the glamourous Natalia, tells her a secret about Jack that changes everything.

Nellie will never know why her mother and aunt parted ways. She’ll sell the house, forget about Jack, and get back to real life. Because there’s nothing for her in Muddleford… is there?

An utterly uplifting and completely hilarious summer read about learning to trust yourself and of finding love and friendship in the least expected places for fans of Jessica Redland, Heidi Swain and Holly Martin.

My Thoughts

This book was just SO much fun! Nellie is having a run of bad luck. Not only has her fiancé left her, but she’s also lost her job. BUT then she receives a mysterious letter from a solicitor about an inheritance from her estranged aunt Lily. With no reason not to she packs up her bags and heads to Muddleford Cove. When she reaches the lovely seaside town she finds that her life has taken a turn in a very positive direction. She now has loads of options including staying in Muddleford Cove where she has just reunited with her childhood crush Jack. BUT then enters Natalia Jack’s “fiancé“?

I so fell in love with this charming town. Everything was perfect from the gorgeous beach houses to the colorful stones with writing on them. Nellie was a great character who I’d love to be friends with! I loved her sense of humor and her big heart. Jack was almost too good to be true, but then there was Natalia? I would be remiss if I did not mention norm! I was so happy that Nelly learned to love the love of Lilly’s life as much as Lily had. This is the perfect book to escape into in a sunny afternoon!

Summer in Andalucia by Lucy Coleman **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy weekend bookworms!

It is always a good day when I am reading a Lucy Coleman book! This book was so fun and full of all the summer vibes! We’ve been having summer weather here in Southern California so that really put me in the sunny summer mood!☀️

Summer in Andalucia

Lainey Summers feels blessed to have her dream job writing for a renowned foodie magazine. And the day she goes to interview chef Rick Oliver at his new restaurant—Aleatory—in London’s popular Piccadilly, is the start of an unexpected journey.

When Rick is offered the opportunity to jet off to a monastery in Andalucía, to film a cookery competition for Spanish TV, Lainey goes too, to cover the story.

Spending a month filming in the stunning Spanish countryside, soaking up the sights, sounds, smells and of course the cuisine, Lainey and Rick start to enjoy each other’s company. But their time together flies by too quickly, and before they know it, Rick and Lainey have to face going their separate ways.

With both their worlds shifting beneath them, the call of Andalucia and the call of happiness grows ever stronger. But with everything at stake, will they be able to take the chance of a happy-ever-after…

Let Lucy Coleman whisk you off on a sun-baked, life-affirming, total escape to beautiful Andalucia.  

My Thoughts

Food, romance, fun, and sun! This was such a delightful story filled with delicious food and summer vibes. Laney works for a magazine and is sent to Andalucia to cover a prestigious cooking contest hosted by famous chef Rick Oliver. Things start heating up both in and out of the kitchen between Laney and Rick. The problem is Rick is involved with notable musician Cathy. So things are a bit complicated.

This truly was the perfect escape! Loved everything about this book the food, the location, the characters, did I mention the food? Laney and Rick were great characters and I really loved the chemistry they had between one another. And fortunately the story was less of a love triangle then it sounds like. Laney also had complicated relationships with her parents and I liked how that was addressed in the book. There really was a lot of delectable fabulousness packed into this little treat of a story!
