My thoughts:

After reading back to back crime thrillers and historical fiction books recently, I was thrilled to see the latest Portia MacIntosh book on my NetGalley shelf. I’m pleased to say, that after first discovering books by Portia last year, I haven’t been disappointed. Stuck on You is another book full of romance and humour, and another visit to Hope Island over Christmas.

A great cast of characters. Sadie is working for (or pandering to every need of) Damian, a world class photographer. We also meet Sadie’s family (who live on Hope Island), Damian’s family in Oxfordshire and travel to the wedding of the daughter of a suspected serial killer.

Although I had quickly worked out one of the secrets in the story, it didn’t distract from the enjoyment of the story – this is an uplifting read, not a who did it thriller.

A relaxing story with a festive feel, to be enjoyed with a mug of hot chocolate whilst wearing a pair of Elf pyjamas.

Author Bio – 

Portia MacIntosh is a bestselling romantic comedy author of 12 novels, including It’s Not You, It’s Them andHoneymoon For One. Previously a music journalist, Portia writes hilarious stories, drawing on her real life experiences.

For Carly, the owner of Carly’s Cupcakes, it’s the busiest time of year getting everyone’s Christmas treats ready on time. However with her clumsy sister, Bethany, as a co-worker, it’s proving a difficult task. They say you shouldn’t mix work with family. Maybe they have a point…

As Christmas approaches, Carly is also eagerly awaiting the return of her best friend to Whitborough Bay. Liam has no idea he’s been the object of her affection since their schooldays. After years of pining after him, can Carly pluck up the courage to finally tell him how she really feels by 25th December?

My thoughts:

Thanks to Jessica Redland for creating another lovely story set in Castle Street with a festive vibe. Carly is a talented cake maker/decorator who is trying to help her sister, Bethany, recover from a traumatic incident, and get ready for her impending wedding.

This is a lovely festive story, full of cakes, wedding preparations, falling in love, the Castle Street community, and making snow angels. I curled up on a Sunday afternoon to read this with a mug of hot chocolate and a snoring dog – a lovely way to relax after a hectic week. This is an uplifting read which left me feeling happy (and craving cake).

Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Cafe by Jessica Redland


Thank you to Boldwood Books for the digital review copy via NetGalley – my thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift. This book is being published today in ebook format.

Synopsis:

A few minutes of courage might change your life… 

Emotionally, Tara Porter finds the festive period a challenge. Christmas Day is a reminder of the family she lost, and New Year’s Eve holds bitter memories of the biggest mistake of her life: marrying Garth Tewkesbury. Shunning invitations to celebrate, she seeks refuge in her flat with only her giant house bunny, Hercules, for company. 

Professionally, though, it’s the best time of year. Tara’s thriving café, The Chocolate Pot, is always packed. With the café hosting a wedding and engagement party, it’s shaping up to be the café’s best Christmas ever. 

When former nemesis, Jed Ferguson, threatens the future of The Chocolate Pot, Tara prepares for a fight. The café is everything to her and she’s not going to let anyone or anything jeopardise that. 

Tara badly misjudged ex-husband Garth and, since then, has refused to let anyone in. After all, if you don’t let them in, they can’t hurt you. But has she misjudged Jed too? Is it possible that he’s not the arrogant, deceitful man from whom she bought the café 14 years earlier? Can she find the courage to find out for sure?

My thoughts:

This is the first book I’ve read by Jessica Redland and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However I did find myself craving for a hot chocolate and some freshly baked chocolate brownies in the middle of the August 2020 UK heatwave.

Great characters, a wonderful setting (I wanted to move into the cafe), a large house rabbit called Hercules and a young woman called Tara who needs to take some steps forward to start living her life again.

I’m happy to recommend this uplifting book – full of new beginnings, romance and cake.

Christmas at Lock Keeper’s Cottage by Lucy Coleman

I’m pleased to be sharing my review for the latest book by Lucy Coleman. If you are a regular reader of my blog, you may remember that that I reviewed A Summer in Provence by Lucy in April and June 2020 (can be read at https://mentoringmumof2bookreviews.home.blog/2020/06/27/summer-in-provence-by-lucy-coleman/). Thank you to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to join the blog tour and to Boldwood Books for a digital proof copy of the book.

Synopsis:

Imogen Tolliman never knew her mother. And when an accident robs Immi of her father too, she goes to live with her grandfather, Tollie, in his picturesque lock-keeper’s cottage by the Aysbury marina. 

Tollie is the star of the Santa Ahoy Special each Christmas – a festive boat ride along the canal that enthralls both children and adults alike. And as Immi grows up, she starts to appreciate the magical community she is lucky enough to live in. 

When Immi meets Gray Adams, she instantly realises he’s someone special. And as their relationship gets serious, they start to plan for the Christmas to beat all Christmases. 

But as the day approaches, and the romantic snow showers turn into blizzards, their dream of a Christmas to remember, looks set to be one they’ll never forget – for all the wrong reasons. Can they salvage the festivities, or will old secrets that are finally uncovered turn Immi’s life upside down forever?

Let Lucy Coleman transport you away to a dreamy Cotswolds Christmas full of snowflakes and secretslog fires, mistletoe, friends and much-loved traditions. Perfect for all fans of Trisha Ashley, Holly Martin and Sue Moorcroft.

My thoughts:

This is my first Christmas themed book to read and review in 2020. The setting sounded lovely – a rural area, with a marina and a community that takes care of friends and family.

My favourite parts of the book included the Santa Ahoy cruises – as my own children are teenagers now, I miss the magic of the young people when they believe in Santa, and Immi battling with a huge turkey, trying to fit it into her fridge, plus all the other Christmas food.

Immi and Gray are looking forward to spending Christmas together, after a year of changes. The story introduces us to their friends and families as the countdown to Christmas begins. Immi wants to create a perfect Christmas Day but events conspire to change everything. She also has secrets to discover which may alter everything.

This isn’t a ‘light and fluffy’ Christmas book, it is about a young woman trying to find happiness for herself whilst putting others first. A thoughtful and well written story, and a different feel to A Summer in Provence.

The Village Shop for Lonely Hearts by Alison Sherlock #blogtour

I’m thrilled to share my review for this uplifting new book by Alison Sherlock on my book review blog today. Thank you to Boldwood Books and Rachel’s Random Resources for the digital proof copy – my thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift.

Synopsis:

After losing her job in New York, Amber Green isn’t looking forward to visiting her godmother in the sleepy village of Cranbridge. With its empty lanes and rundown shops, it’s hardly a place to mend her lonely heart.

But when Amber discovers that Cranbridge Stores, owned by her godmother Cathy and son Josh, is under threat of financial ruin, she realises that her skills as a window dresser might just be able to help save the struggling shop.

When disaster strikes, Amber and Josh must unite to save both the shop and the village from flooding.

Can Cranbridge Stores become the heart of the village once more?

And as the village begins to come back to life, perhaps Amber will discover a reason to stay…

My thoughts:

This is the first book I’ve read by Alison Sherlock and it won’t be the last. This is a book about finding the right place to be, which may not be the one you originally planned.

I live near to the Cotswolds, where the book is set and this book was a lovely escape from the current anxious world that we live in. Amber and Josh are both looking at their lives to see why their intended career paths have changed so much. As they work together to modernise the shop and to help out the local community during a flood, they start to discover that they may have more in common than they expected.

This was an uplifting read during the global pandemic – a book to curl up with for a ‘virtual hug’. I enjoyed the community spirit of the book and the gentle humour of the characters. I hope we will be able to visit Cranbridge again in future books.

Alison Sherlock:

Alison Sherlock is the author of the bestselling Willow Tree Hall books. Alison enjoyed reading and writing stories from an early age and gave up office life to follow her dream. Her new series for Boldwood is set in a fictional Cotswold Village and the first title will be published in July 2020.

The Hopes and Dreams of Libby Quinn by Freya Kennedy

Today I’m sharing my review for this lovely book again. The book is currently free on the Kindle in the UK – time to grab a copy and enjoy visiting Ivy Lane.

Synopsis:

Libby Quinn is sick and tired of being sensible. After years of slogging her guts out for nothing at a PR company, she finds herself redundant and about to plough every last penny of her savings into refurbishing a ramshackle shop and making her dream become a reality.

She hopes the opening of bookshop on Ivy Lane will be the perfect tribute to her beloved grandfather who instilled a love of reading and books in her from an early age. When her love life and friendships become even more complicated – will Libby have the courage to follow her dreams? Or has she bitten off more than she can chew?

My thoughts:

Thank you to Boldwood Books for a digital review copy – my thoughts are my own.

I really enjoyed this book. Libby Quinn has loved stories since she was tiny and dreams of owning her own bookshop – something many avid readers would also wish to be able to do. This book follows her as she tries to make her dream into reality and remembers how she loved reading with her grandfather.

This was a great book to read during our current lockdown situation – it emphasised the importance of family, friendships and community support. Libby’s bookshop idea sounds lovely – books, desks and a coffee shop area.

An uplifting book in a time of uncertainty.

The author:

Freya Kennedy is the pen name of Derry based author Claire Allan – who is perhaps best known for her psychological thrillers!
However, before turning a life of crime, Claire wrote women’s fiction for Irish publisher Poolbeg Press, her reinvention as Freya Kennedy will see her bring some love, laughter and heart-warming happiness to readers.
A true Derry girl, Freya Kennedy has lived all her life in the north of Ireland. She worked for 18 years as a journalist and has been writing full time since 2016. 
She is a huge fan of all kinds of books, from Marian Keyes (she cried the first time she met Marian), to Rowan Coleman, to Jane Fallon, to Jojo Moyes.
She also enjoys a good murder!
She continues to live in Derry with her husband, her two children, two cats and the best dog in the world.

Summer in Provence by Lucy Coleman

Today I’m sharing my review for this gorgeous book again – having read and reviewed this at the start of Lockdown in the UK. Thank you to Boldwood Books for my digital review copy – my thoughts are my own.

Synopsis:

Is a change as good as a rest?

When married couple Fern and Aiden have a windfall, their reactions could not be more different. While Fern is content to pay off their mortgage and build a nest egg before starting a family, her husband is set on traveling the world. 

Fern’s not much of a back-packer so, before she knows it, the idea of a ‘marriage gap year’ takes shape. And, as Aiden heads off to the wilds of Australia, Fern chooses the more restful Provence for her year out. 

Set amidst the glorious French scenery, Château de Vernon offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of normal life, and Fern agrees to help out in return for painting lessons from the owner – renowned, but rather troubled, painter Nico.

As their year unfolds in very different ways, will the time apart transform their marriage, or will it drive Fern and Aiden even further apart…

My thoughts:

Before we go any further, the cover design of this book is stunning and fits the story perfectly.

This was an intriguing story – so often books begin with the end of a relationship but this time, the main characters, Fern and Aiden, were ‘on a break’ after a lottery win – but as with Ross and Rachel in the TV Show ‘Friends’ – would they have different opinions about what this meant for their relationship?

Aiden heads across the world, eager to try new experiences. Fern stays nearer to home, heading to the Haven in Provence. Both meet new people and develop new skills but how will this change the dynamics of their relationship?

Without giving any spoilers, I enjoyed how the story evolved, as Fern rediscovered her passion for painting and helping others. The Haven came to life, as did Provence – we may not be able to travel to Provence in person at the moment but I have now added this to my list of places to visit in the future.

I enjoyed this book and I recommend it as a feel-good read.

Lucy Coleman:

The Wheelwright’s Daughter by Eleanor Porter

Today I’m pleased to share my review for this recently published book again. This book is currently free on the Kindle in the UK.

Synopsis:

Martha is a feisty and articulate young woman, the daughter of a wheelwright, living in a Herefordshire village in Elizabethan England. With no mother Martha’s life is spent running her father’s meagre household and helping out at the local school whilst longing to escape the confines and small-mindedness of a community driven by religious bigotry and poverty.

As she is able to read and is well-versed in herbal remedies she is suspected of being a witch. When a landslip occurs – opening up a huge chasm in the centre of the village – she is blamed for it and pursued remorselessly by the villagers.

But can her own wits and the love of local stablehand Jacob save her from a witch’s persecution and death…

A brilliant and accomplished novel that perfectly captures the febrile atmosphere of Elizabethan village life in an age when suspicion and superstition were rife.


My thoughts:


Thank you to Boldwood Books for a digital review copy of this book – my thoughts are my own.

This is the second book I’ve read recently set in Elizabethan England – the era when the Church of England had replaced Catholicism and the majority of people were unable to read. Many were willing to ‘snitch’ on neighbours to earn extra money to feed their families.

Martha, the main character is a headstrong intelligent young woman in an era when women were expected to be quiet and to stay at home. Her mother died when she was young, followed by her grandmother. Her father was a well respected Wheelwright who has turned to drink to help him forget the loss of his wife.

Martha has to deal with the village gossips, whilst trying to find enough food and fuel to survive. As the story evolves, she has a number of encounters with the villagers, some positive and others not. She has to use her inner strength to stay alive on a number of occasions.

The level of detail in the story is excellent, you really get to understand how hard life was. The saddest thing is seeing how a young woman with some basic knowledge of herbs and nursing skills can be suspected of being a witch. An interesting read and an impressive debut novel.

The author:

Ellie grew up in Herefordshire and now lives near the Malvern Hills. She’s taught in Hong Kong, London and Birmingham and published poetry and short fiction. Her novel THE WHEELWRIGHT’S DAUGHTER grew out of walks on Marcle Ridge where a 1571 landslip is still visible and marked on the map as The Wonder. The book tells the story of a world torn by division, where new beliefs jostle with tradition, where to be different can cost you your life. It introduces Martha Dynely, who refuses to be crushed, even when the horizon crumbles and buries her.

One Day in Summer by Shari Low


Thrilled to share my review for One Day in Summer on the blog tour being organised by Rachel’s Random Resources and Boldwood Books – this is a book I devoured in a day sat in our sunny garden, social distancing from the rest of the world. Thank you to Boldwood Books for a digital advanced review copy – my thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift.

Synopsis:

One day in summer, three lives are about to change forever.

After two decades of looking after others, this is the day that Agnetha McMaster is reclaiming her life. It’s her turn, her time but will she have the courage to start again?

Ten years ago, Mitchell McMaster divorced Agnetha and married her best friend, Celeste. Now he suspects his second wife is having an affair. This is the day he’ll discover if karma has come back to bite him.

Thanks to a DNA test, this is the day that Hope McTeer will finally meet her biological father. But will the reunion bring Hope the answers that she’s looking for?

My thoughts:

This is the second book I’ve read by Shari Low. I enjoyed My One Month Marriage earlier this year – my review can be found at http://mentoringmumof2bookreviews.hom… I’m pleased to say that I enjoyed One Day in Summer even more.

The summer day in question, in a non Covid 19 Glasgow, is the birthday of Aggs (Agnetha) who is celebrating her 45th birthday with her twin daughters, who have a few surprises planned for their mum. However there are many unplanned surprises during the day, as the story evolves and I loved the twists in the story. The twin sisters have a great relationship – loved their interactions with each other and their parents.

The other main characters, include the ex husband of Agnetha, Mitchell who is now married to her former best friend, Celeste, plus a young woman, Hope, looking to find her birth parents and Aaron, who has travelled from the United States to meet her after a DNA test.

One Day in Summer looks at lost love, betrayal, friendships, grief, siblings, adoption, and finding love. This was a great read, so many events happening simultaneously, a book I didn’t want to put down. I recommend this for an uplifting read. I would love to see this on TV too.

One Day in Summer is published in June 2020 in the UK.

#blogtour Growing Up for Beginners by Claire Calman

I’m pleased to be able to share my review for Growing Up for Beginners today. Thank you to Boldwood Books for my digital advanced review copy via NetGalley – my thoughts are my own and not influenced by the gift. Thank you also to Claire Calman for taking time to answer some questions – the question and answer session is included after my review.

Synopsis

It’s not easy being a grown-up, but at 47, Eleanor hoped she’d be better at it by now…

But when Eleanor waves her daughter off for a gap-year trip, she finds herself stuck as a satellite wife, spinning in faithful orbit around domineering husband Roger, with only a stash of hidden books and her brilliant but judgmental father Conrad for comfort.

Andrew isn’t mastering the art of growing up either. When he finds his belongings dumped on the drive, although he may not understand women very well, even he can see that this looks like some kind of hint… and so moves back in with his parents.

Backing onto Andrew’s parents lives artist Cecilia, always ready to recount tales of her innumerable ex-lovers, whilst her daughters feel she’s like a misbehaving teenager.

But now four lives are drawn together by long-buried secrets of the past, and it is time for them all to grow up, before it’s too late.

A desperate decision … A lost letter … A powerful secret hidden for thirty years…

My thoughts:

This is the first book I’ve read by Claire Calman. I love the gorgeous cover, it is bright, cheerful and fits the story perfectly.

The story is told by various characters / POV’s and I found it took a few chapters to get into the flow of the story. Looking at the reviews on Goodreads, some readers quickly gave up – my advice is to stick with it if you can, it will be worth it.

As the title suggests, it is time for some of the characters to grow up. Eleanor, whose children have now flown the nest, has to deal with her husband Roger, who is one of the most obnoxious characters I’ve ever met in a book and her dad, Conrad. She meets Andrew (via Conrad), who suddenly finds himself living back with his parents (with a mum determined to feed him up) and needs to move forward with his life. My favourite character is Cecilia, who embarrasses her daughters with tales of her flamboyant past. 

I enjoyed the book and hope you will be tempted to read it too. Topics covered include lost love, parenting issues, adultery, sibling relationships, creativity and a love of books.

Question and Answer session with Claire Calman:

Questions:

1) Do you read the end of a fiction book first or do you know other people who do?

No, I don’t – but I do hate it when books don’t have proper endings. It’s not that the end has to be happy (though I’ve really gone off books that leave me feeling I might as well hide under the duvet as everything is awful), but I do want that feeling of rightness, that sense of ‘ah, yes – of course that’s the end. 
I do know more than one person who habitually reads the end first and I think it’s more common than one may realise. 

2) Was Roger inspired by someone or a combination of people?

There are specific things he does that stem from a range of people, eg always driving except when he wants to drink, and I’m afraid to say – the cutting of the books. The thing is that someone like Roger really has no idea that he’s a bully – I think he’d be genuinely baffled by the thought. 

3) How has lockdown publication differed to normal publication for you?

Well – being superficial for a moment – no book launch! Missing out on some of the really enjoyable stuff when you have a novel published, eg doing festivals or talks in bookshops, signings, readings, more radio etc. I am doing Proms at St Jude’s LitFest – for a live Zoom event with my sister (writer Stephanie Calman) on Sunday 28th June. 

4) Are you planning or writing a new book?

Yes. I had real problems focusing properly on writing at the start of lockdown because – like many people – I felt just really anxious about the whole thing, but I’m working better now. The next book is very different in tone. It’s set in Kent near where I used to live. 

Thank you Claire for taking time out during publication week to answer these questions.
