From Ireland With Love by Liz Hurley

FROM IRELAND WITH LOVE final

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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fabulous
Nicoletta is a city trader who is being investigated by the Financial Conduct Authority, she knows she’s innocent but someone seems to have something against her. She goes to Ireland to look into her families background and whilst there she meets Gabe and all of the sudden things aren’t as simple as they were 
I loved Nick, she is smart, calm and collected. She knows she hasn’t done anything wrong but the investigation still causes her a huge amount of anxiety which I think is totally normal! She has a really close bond with her sisters and they all rally round to support her when she needs them and she would do anything for them
I adored Gabe, he has been sent to Ireland by his father to follow Nick but instead he meets Letta who he quickly starts to fall for, not realising that they are the same person. He is really close to his twin brother and with his support he offers Nick the use of the house they are renovating to gain full independence from their father when she needs to get out of London. He was drawn to her right from the start and his nature means he doesn’t want to do anything to hurt her but when things get difficult, at each turn he does things that support her, even if she will never know which made me love him even more 
Family is a huge part of this book, both the relationships people have with them and finding lost family and I think this worked so well. It allowed Nick to escape and finding out about her fathers past helped her to feel closer to him and eventually better understand what had really happened. Gabe on the other hand has a troubled relationship with his father and his older half siblings but is close to his mother and brother and this influences him throughout the book leading to challenges and asking what is really important 
Nick and Gabes relationship isn’t hugely traditional given the amount of drama and the troubles they have but they are still pulled towards each other anyway. I found myself routing for them and so quickly got caught up in this book that I forgot it was bedtime! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance full of drama that focuses on family and which at times asks some difficult questions

The Knight’s Maiden in Disguise by Ella Matthews

The Knight - KMID UK cover

Risking her life

To save a knight!

Disguising herself as her late twin brother keeps Avva Carpenter, and her family, safe. Until Sir William Devereux arrives in her town. As the castle’s stable master, Avva can’t avoid the knight—or the desire he instantly stirs in her. He’s everything she never knew a nobleman could be: honest, kind, brave. When danger surrounds them, the only way to help William is to reveal her true identity, but can she trust him enough?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Totally brilliant and fabulous 
Avva is masquerading as her dead twin brother Aven as the stable master for Baron Caerden and things are thrown up in the air when William, one of the Kings Knights, arrives to inform them of a royal visit but things aren’t what they seem 
Avva is pretending to be her brother because of the inherent danger of being a woman near Caerden and pretending to be Aven means that she can be relatively safe whilst also protecting her younger brothers. Avva is strong, determined and brilliant at what she does. She would do almost anything to protect those she cares about even if it puts her in danger, especially as being seen with William does. I loved Avva right from the start, she is an amazing character who I couldn’t help but adore
William is surprised by his attraction when he first meets Avva, believing her to be Aven and he had never liked men before but the more he got to know Avva the more his suspicions about her gender got stronger and he found out her secret. He is one of the Kings Knights but he also has a vulnerable side, he would give his life for the King and very quickly Avva becomes to mean a lot more to him than he expected. William is the kind of person I would want to spend time with, he is loyal, determined and dangerous whist also being so loveable
I totally loved this book, I was hooked right from the very beginning and unable to put it down. Their story is full of danger and drama and each page had me holding my breath and hoping that they would be ok, even if things seemed stacked against them
Both Avva and William know they have no future together, they are from different worlds, but it doesn’t stop them from being drawn to each other and between them they start to realise what is important in their lives, even when reality forces them apart 
I was hooked by this book from the first page and I couldn’t put it down. The writing style and the characters drew me in and had me so embedded in the characters lives that I could feel each thing happening as if it was real. As you can probably tell by now, I adored this book and as such I would recommend it to so many people but especially those who enjoy a romance full of danger, drama and friendship that will keep you on your toes and unable to put it down

Midsummer Magic at Miss Moonshine’s Emporium by Mary Jayne Baker, Sophie Claire, Jacqui Cooper, Helena Fairfax, Kate Field, Melinda Hammond, Marie Laval, Helen Pollard and Angela Wren

cover

Are you ready to meet Miss Moonshine? Life may never be the same again…

It’s summer in Haven Bridge and Miss Moonshine is getting ready for a busy season. From the window of her Wonderful Emporium, at the heart of the pretty Yorkshire town, she watches and waits, weaving plans to bring happiness to all who step through her door. For Miss Moonshine is no ordinary shopkeeper. She may not have what you want, but she will always have what you need…

Nine romantic novelists from Yorkshire and Lancashire, including best-selling and award-winning authors, have joined together to create this anthology of uplifting stories guaranteed to warm your heart. This magical collection of contemporary romances will make you laugh, cry and wish for a Miss Moonshine in your own life.

.

As is my custom with anthologies of short stories, I will review each story and then give an overall rating and review for the book

.

A Glitch in Time by Jaqueline Cooper
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This is a story of a swap in time between Nicola and her grandmother Lily and how everything that you do can affect the future 
I loved this story, Lily and Nicola are both confused by their life changes but they have someone who cares about each of them to help them adapt and they both do things that are so important and insightful which have such a positive impact. My only problem with this story was it was too short, I would have loved to spend more time with these fabulous ladies and to see what happens to Nicola following Lily’s talk with Nicola’s boyfriend about expectations and how things can be perceived
.
Caught Red-Handed by Sophie Claire
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Set from Ruby’s point of view this story looks at what is important and how an object can have an affect on someone’s life 
I liked Ruby, she isn’t a natural criminal and seeing her realise that she can’t cope with what she has done and the potential repercussions made her seem more real to me. She sets a goal and is determined to stick with it, even if it isn’t in the best of situations and she learns more about herself as well as family secrets which could destroy everything if she let them. I found Ruby’s story to be quite lifelike and could easily see it happening in real life which added to the magic of Miss Moonshines Emporium 
.
Three Butterflies by Marie Laval
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Tamsin and Oliviers story is one of 2 very different people being thrust together and realising that they may have more in common than they realised 
I loved how they are both so different but as Olivier begins to relax he accepts more of Tamsins life and how what she does affects the community she lives in. It’s because of Tamsin and her community gardening that Olivier gets ideas that may help save his families business. My only issue with this story is that I wish it was longer and had some more details as it would have been good to understand more about Tamsin and Olivier, their backgrounds and their future
.
GU 1909 by Angela Wren
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Maddies dad passed away suddenly tearing her life and her relationship with Simon apart but restoring Miss Moonshines car brings them back together 
I liked Maddie, she is an independent woman in the normally male dominated world of car mechanics but she is stuck in her past and seeing her come out of her shell and develop further into the woman that she could return to being throughout the story made me love her more. I would have liked to have had more information about her dad, the reason for her issues with Simon and details on the restoration (I enjoy cars so would find it interesting). This story could so easily become a full book and I think for me that would work better but I have still enjoyed reading Maddies story
.
The Secret of Greymoor Hall by Katie Field 
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Libby meets Gil in Miss Moonshines shop when he is looking for an antique bowl stolen from his families home
I liked Libby, she doesn’t want to date but still feels herself pulled towards Gil and his mission to save his home, she enjoys spending time with him and seeing them together allows her to relax and return to herself and her interests that she had put aside following a break up. I really wish that this story was longer, it could so easily work as a full book, exploring what has happened and what comes next as I was left wondering! 
.
The Treasure Seekers by Mary Jayne Baker
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Joley is living in the past, following her parents death she is still living in her childhood home surrounded by memories. She enrols on a TV game show where people swap items and eventually sell the last one at auction
I wasn’t sure on Joley, everyone around her kept telling her that her obsession with the house wasn’t healthy and I think a part of me agreed with her but another part of me also understood that being surrounded by the good memories can be just as important. The main focus of this story was that it doesn’t matter how precious an item is, it’s what it means to a person that has its value and I think this is something that can so easily get forgotten but which is something that I’m sure people can relate to
.
Ginny’s Ghost by Helen Pollard
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Following a conversation with a friend who’s partner is a newspaper reporter everyone in town thinks Ginnys building is haunted and it’s starting to affect her work so she allows 2 ghost hunters in to look around and prove that they building isn’t haunted to force a newspaper retraction 
I liked Ginny, she is practical and determined, she has a cake decorating business and it allows her to bring people’s dreams to life but the ghost is causing her problems. She is certain there must be a practical explanation and I really enjoyed seeing the ghost hunters working on finding out what was going on. I could see some of myself in Ginny and I think this helped me to relate to her and get pulled into her story
.
I Shall Wear Purple by Melina Hammond
⭐️⭐️⭐️
Jeannie’s children have put her in a nursing home following an accident at home and have then sold the house so now she is looking for somewhere else to live and she runs into Dan her childhood sweetheart, has fate brought them together again
I struggled a bit with Jeannies story, but mostly because I think it could so easily reflect my own life and how quickly things can change. She is still determined to be herself but not everything is in her control and I found that quite hard to read which I think impacted my perception of this story
.
Music, Love and Other Languages by Helena Fairfax 
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Edith has fled London and having missed her stop on the train ends up at Haven Bridge where she discovers an old violin at Miss Moonshines which may have the power to show her what is important 
I liked Edith, she has been hemmed in by peoples expectations and as the story develops she allows herself to ask what she wants and what would make her happy. She was anxious and uneasy in her life and I think that this is something that would resonate with people as it did with me and make the reader question what is important to themselves as well, it doesn’t have to be what other people expect of you
.
Overall 
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I loved this anthology of stories and they work well together with the common thread of Miss Moonshine who I would love to know more about as she’s a bit of an enigma. Midsummer can be a time full of magic and this book really looks at that and how small things can make huge differences and at times pull people together
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a book with a fabulous mix of stories with something that will appeal to everyone in a brilliant setting and with the most amazing character of Miss Moonshine running through the stories and helping to connect them together

A Summer of Second Chances by Carol Thomas

A Summer of Second Chances by Carol Thomas High Res

Does first love deserve a second chance?

Ava Flynn sometimes feels like the clothes donated to her charity shop have seen more life than her, but ‘maximum dedication for a minimal wage’ is what it takes to keep her mother’s beloved wildlife charity, All Critters Great and Small, running – especially in the village of Dapplebury, where business is certainly not booming.

But when Ava’s first love, Henry Bramlington, returns to the village, suddenly life becomes a little too eventful. Henry escaped Dapplebury many years before, but now he has the power to make or break the village he left behind – All Critters Great and Small included. Can Ava trust the boy who ran away to give both her and her charity a second chance?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fun and fabulous 
Ava is running an animal rescue sanctuary created by her family and loved by her mum. She mainly focuses on fundraising and runs the charities shop in the village of Dapplebury. Henry is the heir to the Dapplebury estate and has been away for years but has come back as his father is gravely ill
I adored Henry as a character, he is so loveable and determined to make Ava happy, even seeking her out as soon as he returns to the village. He has struggles with the villagers accepting the changes that need to be made to make the estate viable but eventually wins them round and they start to warm to him. He knows what he wants and isn’t afraid to try and get it and his character shines through with everything he does, I ended up loving him even more by the end of the book if that is possible 
Ava is still consumed by her grief for her mums passing and there are a lot of unresolved issues that are bought up within the story but as she starts to deal with them she became a more likeable character to me. It was harder to get to know her because of all of her issues obscuring the real her but she starts to shine through and develop as the story continued and I really ended up routing for Ava and loving her character by the end of the book
Both Henry and Ava have their own issues to deal with and coupled with misunderstandings, her friends inadvertently causing trouble and ghosts of the past coming back to haunt them but I still loved reading their story and was pulled so easily into their world which caught my attention right from the start and had me hooked 
There is a fabulous cast of supporting characters in this book and a part of me thinks that this is what makes the book work so well, they are people I recognise, people I know and I’m sure this will resonate with other readers as well. Because of this I can imagine them so clearly and I love what they bring to the story and how through them we learn so much more about Ava along with so much else (plus some of their exploits really did make me chuckle!)
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story that looks at what has happened in the past and how that impacts a persons future with some brilliant characters and a storyline that will catch your interest

Primrose Park by Christie Barlow

primrose park

Vet Molly has always been career driven and focussed on caring for her animals, but when she meets a gorgeous Mystery Man at a conference and their connection is off the charts, well, one night off work won’t hurt anyone…except the next morning he’s vanished and all Molly knows about him is his first name.

Three months later, back in Love Heart Lane, everyone loves the story of Molly’s amazing one-night stand.  It’s so unlike her! But when Mystery Man turns up walking his dog through Primrose Park and their night together seems to mean nothing to him, Molly needs her friends and neighbours more than ever. And especially when she’s left with the most unexpected of surprises…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The importance of friendship
Molly and Cam have a one night stand but Cam runs out straight after leaving no information so imagine Mollys shock when she comes face to face with him in the town she lives in having just found out she is pregnant with his baby! 
I loved Molly, she is an intelligent and fun character who is surrounded by friends who love her. She is a vet and struggles when she is told that because her blood pressure is so low that she will need to take time off work but she still follows her doctors advice, and supported by her friends, her maternal instinct kicking in and her baby became her priority. She is liked and respected in her community, able to pull people together when needed. She is an independent and loyal person who stands up for what she believes in and I think that’s a big part of what made me like her so much 
There is a big focus in this book on family and friendships with a lot of drama that caught my attention and had me keeping on reading. The support network that most of the characters have makes it feel more real and seeing the community come together following an incident felt like something that would happen in real life which helped me to bond with the other characters in addition to the rest of the community. The only thing I would say is that the story is told from Mollys point of view and although personally I would have loved to have heard from some of the other characters at certain times, it still really worked and had me hooked
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a story full of the love and support of family and friends with a good sprinkle of drama that will keep you reading

The Single Mums’ Book Club by Victoria Cooke

The Single Mums Book Club

Three friends, three single mums, one quest to find love…

It’s 8:30am and I’m already utterly exhausted. My son has lost his football boots, my daughter is ready for school dressed only in her vest and knickers, and of course, my 1-year-old has filled his nappy for what feels like the tenth time this morning.

As for my husband? He’s decided marriage doesn’t suit him, and well… buggered off.

All hope of ‘me time’ has but dwindled to sipping half a glass of wine whilst shouting after the kids. But everything is about to change.

I’m taking control of my life! I’ve joined… a book club.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. ‘Wow… live a little.’ But my fellow book clubbers, Amanda and Janey, are my lifelines. They understand the daily struggle because they’re mothers too.

And in between the prosecco, Doritos and googling everything about Mr Darcy on SparkNotes, they’ve convinced me to go on a date with my boss.

A single mum of three looking for romance… what could possibly go wrong?

A gloriously funny and relatable read for anyone who just needs a little more ‘me time’. Fans of Why Mummy Drinks and Has Anyone Seen my Sex Life? will snort with laughter at this utterly hilarious and heart-warming read.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fabulous and fun
Steph is divorced with 3 kids, her ex husband is being a nightmare and she hasn’t got enough money for toilet paper leading to a meltdown which changes her life. She meets Janey, a mum who lives across the road from her and they eventually decide to form a book club together
I liked Steph, she is nervous and anxious, she has real fears but everything she does is for her children. They are her everything, and it’s only through meeting Janey that her world starts to expand and she manages to get a job and start interacting with other adults more
The ladies in the book group are all very different from each other with Steph being a divorced parent who is struggling, Janey being a stay at home mum with a sometimes absent husband and Amanda who from the outside seems to have it all but actually doesn’t 
Each of the ladies have experienced loneliness and the book club brings them together and let’s them have the time with other adults that they all need. It gives them friendship and someone to be there for them when they need as well as helping them to accept who they are and that with good friends, anything is possible 
Each of them have their own struggles but it’s the differences which I think made the book club and as a result this book really work and what drew me in and the developments of the characters which kept me hooked. Even if at times I thought some of their escapades a bit crazy and I occasional wished that I could hear from some of the other viewpoints as well as just Steph’s, it really worked as it is and made me chuckle a few times 
I think the characters in this book will seem so familiar to many people out there, not just mums, and as a result I would recommend it to those who enjoy a moment of escapism into another life with characters you will totally love!

Bound by a Ring and a Secret by Jennifer Faye

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A book that looks at the importance of dreams 
Dario and Gianna are both running from their pasts but when they accidentally end up living together it makes them question their long held beliefs 
Gianna is a fabulous character, she is a camerawomen and a photographer but also a perfectionist in what she does which allows her work to connect to people. She isn’t interested in lots of money or fame but instead would rather get out in nature and take photos which is her true passion. She is the kind of character who I would love to meet! 
Dario is a rich businessman but his passion is writing and he has already written an international best seller but he is stuck on how to make his next book right so the publishers will accept it. I suspect that many of the emotions Dario goes through in terms of his writing would ring true to many authors and this did help him to feel more human for me. He has insecurities and is anxious about his writing, especially as his family wouldn’t approve but seeing him become more confident about what he wants made him a character who I could relate more strongly to and made me love him more and more 
Both Gianna and Dario develop and change so much throughout the book but this was needed for them as they realised that some of their priorities may not be the same as they used to be. They needed the support and encouragement from each other to become the characters I knew they could be and that is something which drew me into their world and had me so invested in the outcome of their story
I became so totally addicted to their world and their story that I read this book in one sitting and it’s a book that I would definitely recommend to those who enjoy a romance that looks at the characters hopes and dreams whilst also challenges them, and all in an amazing setting

Awakening His Shy Vet by Shelley Rivers

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A book that makes you look under the surface 
Ruby is a vet but she is also a goth which have put a lot of vet practices off but she gets a chance at a job in Dorset and whist she is there she meets Kern who used to train racehorses but who is now back on his families farm 
I liked Ruby, she doesn’t look like the traditional vet but every time she is with a patient she completely focuses on them and understanding the problem. She has been hurt badly in the past and this has a huge bearing on her. I enjoyed learning more about her and understanding her story which made me love her quite quickly
Kern has left the racing world in disgrace and has come back to Dorset as it’s the only place he has left. It was harder for me to get to know Kern as more of the book was set from Ruby’s perspective but it also helped me to like him when seeing him through Ruby’s eyes 
Both Kern and Ruby have been hurt in the past and this brings them closer together. Unsurprisingly a lot of the book is linked to horses and I think this really works as it gives the reader a better understanding of what is important to Ruby and Kern and why, it also helps force them together when they otherwise might have avoided each other 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a vet romance with characters who develop so much into the people that they can be and whose journey you will love being on
