Winter Kisses at Roseford Cafe by Fay Keenan ❄️Book Review❄ @rararesources️

Hello book people!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas reading season and I am here for it! loved this charming Wintery story!❄️

My Thoughts

The perfect festive story to kick off Christmas reading season! Lucy is a single mom and café owner living in a small lovely town. Lucy is so excited to find out that Finn Sanderson her high school crush who she thought she’d never meet is filming a movie in her small town. and she is rendered speechless when he comes into her café for a cup of coffee. but Finn is not your stereotypical star. He is down to earth and humble. Lucy ends up catering for the movie set allowing fin and her to form a connection. but is Lucy ready to be involved with a celebrity? really liked both Lucy and fin, and wanted things to work out for them. Also, really enjoyed all the secondary characters in this charming town. the town itself really was a character, somewhere you’d want to go visit especially at Christmas time. loved the Christmas fair, all the festive Decour, and, of course the snow. A heartwarming, sweet story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

About the Book

When Lucy Cameron, the owner of Roseford Café, is asked to fulfil a last-minute catering order on set, she can’t believe her luck.

Lucy’s erstwhile teenage crush, Finn Sanderson, is the star of the film, alongside his glamorous co-star, Montana de Santo, with whom he has been linked on and off the screen, and their sprinkle of stardust around the village is intoxicating.

With Christmas approaching and the snow starting to fall, Lucy’s path keeps crossing with Finn’s, and she starts to get to know the man behind the movie star. As her feelings grow, so too do Lucy’s reservations about even considering becoming involved with someone so well-known. And when Lucy becomes the centre of a social media storm, her fears seem to be justified.

Are happy-ever-afters just the preserve of romantic Christmas movies, or could Lucy and Finn star in their very own, real-life festive love story…

Revel in the perfect country Christmas romance from Fay Keenan, just right for all fans of Julie Houston, Cathy Bramley and Holly Martin.

Clara’s Secret by Rosie Green 🌼Book Review🌼 @rararesources

Hello Bookworms!

It is always a good day when I get to visit the Little Duck Pond Café!

My Thoughts

Another delight of a read in this fantastic series! even though this is the 23rd book in the series it is the first book in a trilogy within the series, so it can absolutely be read as a standalone. OK, that’s a lie, after you read this book, you will want to read the next two books, for sure. As they continue Clara’s story. Clara is a very likable relatable character. remember that boy/girl you had a crush on in high school who didn’t even know you existed? for Clara that is Rory and he is now back in her life. so, will he notice her now? You’ll have to pick up this lovely book to find out. And trust me, it will not disappoint! Beautiful flowers, scrumptious vegetables (yes I said scrumptious), sweet sibling relationships, and a charming setting. Not to mention the will they won’t they between Clara and Rory. cannot wait to read the next book and spend more time with Clara and these other fabulous characters.

PS: even though the characters from the previous books, don’t have a huge part in the story, they do make an appearance. And if you’re like me, that will make you smile.

A Winter Warmer At The Little Cornish Kitchen by Jane Linfoot 🕊️Book Review🕊️ @rararesources

Hello reading friends!

Hope you’re having an amazing day! Excited to share my review with you today of this delightful story set in Cornwall. I will hopefully make it there one day!

My Thoughts

A delightfully scrumptious story! Loved being back in Cornwall in this lovely town with these charming characters. This is the third book in the series, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. This book introduces us to quite a few new characters, including Gwen and Ella who are new to town. they are living in a seaside cottage, where the rent has been cut with the stipulation that they are going to remodel the place. One of the first people Gwen meets when arriving in town is Ollie. their meeting is fraught with tension, embarrassment, and chemistry. but both Ollie and Gwen are going through things so they deny the chemistry for most of the book. Gwen finds herself a job at the Little Cornish Kitchen, where she whips up all kinds of yummy food and treats. this book reminded me that I haven’t had a piece of fudge in ages. Also, I just want to know if I move to small town Cornwall is everyone going to welcome me like Gwen and Ella were welcome to this town? Gwen really found her place and her footing, in this quaint town, not to mention love. Just a delightful heartwarming story filled with food, friends, family, decorating, and an adorable dove.

Author Bio – 

I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines, and lots of heart. Writing is fab, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a cottage up the steepest hill in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things French. When I’m not on Facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be out with my two Old English sheepdogs or in the garden. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

The Break Up Agency by Sheila McClure 🐶Book Review🐶 @rararesources

The Break Up Agency by Sheila McClure  🐶Book Review🐶 @rararesources

Happy Tuesday bookworms!

Hope all is well with you! Delighted to share with you my review for this gem of a story!🐶

My Thoughts

Such a fun story, and the audiobook was stellar! Ellie is a little lost in London. she is no longer with her boyfriend, the reason she moved to London. She isn’t crazy about her current job, and feels as though she has no close friends. now, if you are a frequent romcom reader, you know that break ups, lousy jobs, and no friends usually leads to love. But not so fast! Ellie doesn’t find love instead she finds a new career path. Softer Landings, where she helps people break up with their partners, in a kinder gentler way. I thought the idea of this “break up agency“ was quite clever, made me wonder if there is actually such a thing? Ellie was a sympathetic character. I really wanted her to find her confidence and realize her self-worth. Thea and Simon, her coworkers, who eventually become her friends were definitely colorful characters. Now there is some romance in the story, it’s just very complicated. Ellie is certain that “American Dan “is perfect for her, the problem is, he’s in a relationship or out of the country for most of the book. I did like Dan I just was a bit conflicted with the entire situation. Both he and Ellie were hiding things. But don’t fear there is a character in the story that will steal your heart, Gus, the dog! absolutely adored that furry guy, he absolutely stole the show. I listened to the audiobook, which was narrated by Imogen Church, who is one of my favorite narrators. She did an amazing job of bringing all these characters to life. If you are an audiobook person, I definitely recommend. And bonus. It is available in Audiobook and Ebook on KU in the US.

About the Book

The Break-Up Agency

Ellie Shaw loves love. Unfortunately, she’s also an expert in break-ups. When a friend needs help with her ‘too nice to dump’ boyfriend, Ellie agrees to help. What she doesn’t expect is for American Dan to be kind, caring, to love dogs and look like a Disney hero. In other words, completely too good to be true.

She lets him down with grace and, encouraged by her friends, sets up Softer Landings, offering kinder, gentler break-ups.

A year later American Dan reappears in her life. With a new girlfriend. One who also decides he’s not the one for her.

The team hatch a plan to let Dan down easy, but while Ellie attempts to lead him gently away, real sparks start to fly. There’s just one big problem she can’t ignore. Can Ellie reveal that their romance is the result of an elaborate con without it feeling like a huge betrayal? Or is she about to star in the most awful dumping of all time?
