Caper Crush by Kathy Strobos  📚Book Review📚 @rararesources

Happy hump day all!

Hope all is well! Excited and delighted to share my review of this fun romance sprinkled with a generous dose of Mystery.🎨

My Thoughts

A fun romance sprinkled with a generous dose of mystery. Miranda is a struggling artist on the verge of her big break, until her painting is stolen. Straight laced William has known Miranda most of his life. And now not only is he caught up in finding her missing painting, but he’s also getting caught up in her. Loved both of these characters! Miranda is a sassy free spirit who I would love as a friend. William has a heart of gold under his buttoned up exterior. It was a lot of fun Reading about these two solving the mystery and falling in love. A lovely story that will make you smile and want some abstract art. 💕😂🧠🐄🎨

About the Book

Caper Crush

A feel-good, opposites-attract, slow burn romantic comedy

Somebody stole my painting! The one I need for the career-defining Vertex Art Exhibit. This upcoming art show is my chance to finally be recognized as an artist—after ten years of waitressing and being asked if I still have that “lovely painting hobby.”

I have mere weeks to find my painting or lose my artist dream forever—but it’s going to mean working with William.

William Haruki Matsumura. Good-looking, if you like the Secret Service type. You know, law-abiding, protector of women and children. That’s all fine, but I can never tell what he’s thinking. Which drives me crazy.

He insists on coming along to do “damage control.” As if “accidentally” wandering into certain areas is “breaking and entering.” I may be an emotional artist, but William shouldn’t dismiss my investigative skills yet.

William is definitely my opposite, and, if there’s one takeaway from my parents’ divorce, it’s that opposites might attract, but it doesn’t last. But detecting with William is kind of fun—and fluttery. I definitely can’t trust these feelings, or can I? However this caper ends, I think this may be more than a crush.

The Sandy Cove Supper Club by Sian O’Gorman 📚Book Review📚 @rararesources

The Sandy Cove Supper Club by Sian O’Gorman  📚Book Review📚 @rararesources

Happy Monday Bookworms!

Hope you’re having a fabulous day! Excited to share my review for this delightful book with you today!🐹

The Sandy Cove supper club book cover

My Thoughts

This book was an absolute delight! Sian O’Gorman’s descriptive writing swept me away to small town Ireland. Roisin is struggling with her self-confidence. Trapped in a deadend marriage and not quite sure what she wants to do with the rest of her life. I think most of us can relate to Roisin in one way or another. Roisin was very likable I was definitely rooting for her the entire time. Even though Roisin is married to a no good cad, she is surrounded by great friends and family. The secondary characters in the story added so much charm and whimsy. I also loved the supper club, made me hungry! This was a lovely summer read with the added bonus of a second chance romance!

*** Big thank you to Boldwood for my gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ***

About the Book

Working in the Council Planning office, Roisin dreams to escape the mundanity of her life. Her true passions are cooking and entertaining her family and friends but she lacks the confidence to take it any further. When a charity supper club is suggested by best friends Jools and Richard, Roisin has no choice and is reluctantly swept along to be head chef for the fundraiser.

With the help of her friends, Roisin starts to believe that there is more to life that moody writers, hamsters and poor hygiene and that maybe she has a few dreams of her own.

And that just when you think life has nothing left to give, your whole world can change.

The Christmas Caroline by Camilla Isley **Book Review**

The Christmas Caroline by Camilla Isley **Book Review**

Happy Wednesday evening friends!

Hope you had an awesome day! So excited that it is now officially Christmas reading season! Loved the charm and the whimsy in this lovely festive story!🎄


A Christmas Caroline

A modern-day retelling of A Christmas Carol…


Caroline is a cynic career woman living the high life in Manhattan where love and relationships are but a distant memory of the past.

But after a freak accident on Christmas Eve, Caroline receives a visit from a cheeky spirit of Christmas Past, Present, Yet to Come, and—most importantly—Christmas That Could Have Been. When she wakes up on Christmas Day suddenly married with three kids and living two doors down from her parents in New Jersey, Caroline has a chance to experience the life she would’ve had if she’d made a different choice.

Will small-town life as a mother and a wife make her rediscover what’s really important in life?

My Thoughts

A fun festive modern retelling of A Christmas Carol. Caroline is a workaholic more focused on finances then festivities. After a spill on the ice while dipping early from her families Christmas Eve. Caroline finds herself not only facing Christmas past, present, and future, but also Christmases that could have been. Caroline now finds herself married to the one that got away, living in suburbia and the mother of three. So much fun! Loved watching Caroline navigate motherhood. I can’t even imagine waking up and finding yourself with three kids one of them being an infant. I thought this was such a fabulous twist on a classic. I loved watching Caroline grow throughout the book. We all have those choices in our lives that we wonder about. How would things have gone had I made a different choice? Another festive fantastic story from Camilla Isley.

Twelve Days to Save Christmas by Elizabeth Neep **Book Review**

Twelve Days to Save Christmas by Elizabeth Neep **Book Review**

Happy Thursday all!

Hope life has been treating you well! Cannot believe it is so close to Christmas! This was such a sweet story 10/10 recommend! 🎄


My Thoughts

This was such a fun festive read! Poppies boyfriend of five years George dumps her right before Christmas. Poppy is devastated, who is she without George? Determined to show George that she is still the upbeat independent girl he fell in love with Poppy makes a 12 day plan to get him back. Loved Poppy she was so sparkly and authentic. Quite honestly I think George did Poppy a huge favor by breaking up with her. He and his friends seem so superficial compared to poppies authenticity. The break up gave Poppy an opportunity to really find herself. She joined a choir, volunteered at the community center, and maybe met a man more suited to her. This book would make a perfect hallmark Christmas movie, it gave me all the festive feels. Another amazing story by Elizabeth Neep.

About the Book

On the first day of Christmas, my true love… dumped me.

Poppy loves Christmas and always goes all out to make this magical time of the year extra special for her boyfriend George. But George is strangely not in the Yuletide spirit this year. As Poppy wrestles him into her Christmas jumper built for two for a holiday snapshot, she finds out why.

He’s leaving her. With only twelve days to spend together until Christmas.

Poppy is heartbroken. George is the love of her life, and what would Christmas be without kisses under the mistletoe, his mum’s delicious homemade gingerbread or their super-competitive games of Pictionary?

She’s determined to win George back. So, anxious to prove to him she can be spontaneous, she signs up as a Christmas volunteer at the local community centre. What she doesn’t know is that there’s a festive surprise coming her way…

As Poppy throws herself into her new role – mulling vats of hot cider and hanging fairy lights off everything within reach – she discovers an inner strength she never knew she had. And there’s also Theo. Her new boss. Grumpy and opinionated, he’s everything she doesn’t want.

But as the snow starts to fall, she begins to notice other things about him – like his twinkling green eyes, how he makes her laugh, and how much he cares about the people he’s trying to help.

As the twelfth day approaches, Poppy might be about to discover that the most perfect Christmas might be the one that she didn’t plan at all…

Fans of One Day in December, Beth O’Leary and Mhairi McFarlane will be completely enchanted by this witty and warm festive story about friendship, love and finding yourself.

Fool Me Twice At Christmas by Camilla Isley **Book Review**

Fool Me Twice At Christmas by Camilla Isley **Book Review**

Happy Sunday all!

I am so excited it is the beginning of holiday reading season! 84 days until Christmas have you done any shopping yet? I haven’t even thought about it, but yikes that’s close!✨

Fool Me Twice at Christmas 🎄

Fool Me Twice at Christmas

There are two types of relationships: fake and real.

Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.

With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.

They head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.

Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?

My Thoughts

This was the perfect book to kick off my Christmas reading season with! A combo of two of my favorite tropes the fake relationship and a second chance romance. Kate and Chuck broke up four months ago but they have decided not to share this with their family until Christmas. However when they are spending Christmas with their families it never seems to be the right time and then it gets even messier. The story is told from the alternating perspectives of both Chuck and Kate and I thought this was perfect I loved getting into the head of both of these characters and knowing where they were coming from. Both of their parents were a bit overly invested in their relationship and very pushy. I could understand why Kate and Chuck were hesitant to share the news with their parents that the relationship was over. I consider this book Christmas light. The Christmas vibe is in the background but it is not a huge part of the story the main focus is on the relationship between Kate and Chuck. A super sweet romcom that put a huge smile on my face and put me in a festive mood!

From Ireland With Love by Liz Hurley **Book Review**

Happy Sunday friends!

Excited to share with you today my review for this fabulous book! I have enjoyed each and every book in the series and this one was no exception!💚


From Ireland With Love

Nick Byrne knows she’s the sensible one of the five Hiverton sisters. Independent, motivated, and successfully running her own business – she has never settled for anything less. And certainly, never used her family estate to give her a leg up.

But as an investigation is launched into her trading company, Nick’s world begins to crumble. Suddenly out of work, her mind wanders to her father – what would he do? She hardly knows anything of her orphaned parent and longs to find answers – some which will hopefully guide her.

With her newly gifted dog for company, Nick sets off to Ireland to retrace her family history. However, the high-flying city girl soon learns that every adventure comes with a few surprises – even in the shape of a romance.

Will Nick discover more about her father’s hidden past – or will she take home more than she bargained for?…

Be inspired by this feel good romcom, for fans of Trisha Ashley and Cathy Bramley.My Thoughts

Another fun read in this delightful series! Five sisters utterly devoted to one another and yet each so unique. It has been so fun watching these sisters grow up while navigating their newfound wealth. This book is about Nick The clever sensible sister. In a prior book Nick found out that there were shenanigans going on at her company and this has led her to reassess things in life. In this book Nick decides to head to Ireland to discover her fathers Irish roots. Nick not only discovers some family history but she also finds herself entangled in a romance. Loved this book! It was nice seeing Nick let loose a little bit and how could she not with such a great guy like Gabe around? Also appreciated the tidbits we got of the other sisters throughout the story. This is just a fun feel-good series that makes you wish you had four sisters of your very own!💚

Her Deadly Touch by Lisa Regan **Book Review**

Her Deadly Touch by Lisa Regan **Book Review**

Hello Book Friends!

Hope life is treating you well! Super excited to share my review for the latest book in one of my favorite series!🔎

My Thoughts

Another spectacular installment in the Josie Quinn series! Josie is still dealing with grief and guilt from the loss of her beloved grandmother in the previous book. The Grief and guilt are compounded by the fact that her first case back involves a murder. Two years ago there was a Dudley school bus crash that Killed six students and sent the bus driver to jail. Now it appears as though somebody is targeting the parents of these children. Why is somebody bringing even more grief into these family’s lives, what could the possible motivation be? Once again Josie and team are on the case. Josie was definitely struggling and it was nice to see everyone around her prop her up especially Noah.As in all Josie Quinn books I loved donning my detective hat and trying to puzzle the mystery together. This series is 12 books strong and keeps bedding better, can’t wait to see what’s next!

About the Book

The woman is kneeling at a gravestone, her hair blowing in the breeze, a bunch of wilting yellow daffodils on the grass beside her. Her eyes are fixed on the ground and her mouth is parted in a silent prayer. But the wax dripping from her cold blue lips means it’s already too late to save her…

On her first day back with the Denton PD after a major trauma, Detective Josie Quinn is on the hunt for a missing woman, Krystal Duncan, the mother of one of five children killed in a devastating school bus crash. Hours later, Josie finds Krystal’s body beside her daughter’s grave, her lips sealed together forever with wax.

Forensics match the wax to one of the candles lit in memory of the sweet little souls who died, giving Josie her first lead to a support group made up of the parents who lost children in the crash. Painstakingly dissecting the lives of these grieving couples, it’s clear to Josie that each of them is hiding something about the day of the accident—but whose secret is worth killing for?

The case takes an agonizing turn when the body of another young mother is found near the site of the bus crash. Someone connected to the accident is out for revenge. As the members of the support group are picked off one by one, every second counts for Josie to save the lives of these loving parents who have already suffered the loss of those they treasured most…

An absolutely gripping and totally unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Be warned, this book will keep you up all night! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

Greece Actually by Sue Roberts **Book Review**

Happy Friday!

If you’re looking for a fun escape of a book to read this weekend then look no further than this delightful tale!☀️

My Thoughts

Another fun escape of a book from Sue Roberts! Becky has just escaped an abusive relationship, completely uprooted her life and started over. When her uncle reaches out and asks her to housesit his Villa in Greece she jumps at the chance. Now can I just say I would love to have an uncle or any relative for that matter that would pay for me to housesit their villa on a Greek island. Anyways I digress… as in all of Sue Roberts books she really brought the essence of Greece to life in the pages of this book. The sun, the sand, the food. Part of the story Becky spends with her two BFFs Paige and Abby. Glorious days lounging on the beach, nights of delicious dining, and even an Abba boat cruise that sounded like a blast. Becky also meets A handsome local Kyros, Who just might convince her to prolong her stay. Becky was a sweet relatable character who I was definitely rooting for. Loved this gorgeous setting and all the outings with her girls. My only teeny tiny complaint is the romance I wish it was perhaps a little more developed. This was a perfect getaway for those of us that probably won’t be getting a tropical vacation this summer.

About the Book

Take one sea-view villa, add two dates with a Greek God, a few glasses of wine, a dash of accidental nudity, and a heavy dose of sunshine. Recipe for a perfect getaway… or an absolute disaster?

Small, shy, safe. That’s how Becky lives ever since her last romantic calamity landed her in hospital. Her comfort zone is as confining as her tiny bank balance, and fiercely guarded by her totally over-the-top mum. But the news that her ex is back sniffing round is the final straw. In a very un-Becky move, she packs her bags for the Greek island of Skiathos. Maybe the setting of her favourite ABBA movie will be just the break from reality Becky needs…

Stepping aboard the Mamma Mia! boat tour, Becky leaves her fear in the port as she sings… out loud… in public, and cries Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! to everything the Greek life has to offer. She befriends locals young, old, and absolutely perfect (hello, sizzling hot restaurant-owner Kyros!), dines on freshly baked bread drizzled in golden olive oil on a starlit date, and walks barefoot along silky sandy beaches.

When Kyros asks her to stay longer, Becky is stunned. Could she really create a new life for herself here, and trust her heart with this smooth-talking charmer? But just as she’s thinking about putting down roots, her troublesome ex makes a dramatic return, begging for her back. Will she go back to playing it safe, or will she take a chance on Greece and embrace her true dancing queen?

An absolutely laugh-out-loud summer rom-com guaranteed to give you THAT holiday feeling! Perfect for fans of Carole Matthews, Jenny Colgan and Sophie Kinsella.
