#VirginRiver

I have always found the book to be better than the screen adaption, and this is certainly the case for Virgin River, now an original Netflix series.

Sometimes, all one needs is a fresh start and that is so true for Melinda Monroe. On impulse, recently widowed Melinda Monroe decides to leave her city life and escape to the idyllic rural town of Virgin River, all on the basis of an advert. She has her reasons for leaving, heartache being one of them, along with the revitalisation of her nursing career.  

However, Mel’s hopes are dashed within an hour of arriving – the cabin is uninhabitable, the roads are treacherous and the local doctor wants nothing to do with her. But when a tiny baby is abandoned on a front porch, Mel must decide whether to stay and help or cut her losses and leave.

Helped by local barman, a former marine, Jack Sheridan, Mel must face her past, and in so doing, finds  there may be a future in Virgin River after all.

Robyn Carr weaves a lovely tale of heartache and healing, courage and victory, and unexpected love. Set in picturesque country with a myriad of quirky characters and a dash of danger, Virgin River makes for an entertaining read.

I want to thank #MillsAndBoon for the opportunity to participate in the blog tour of #VirginRiver by #RobynCarr.

Redemption Bay Blog Tour

Welcome to the blog tour of Redemption Bay!

So glad you could join us!

Redemption Bay Cover

Redemption Bay is the new novel from New York Times bestselling author #RaeAnneThayne.

McKenzie Shaw would do anything for her beloved hometown of Haven Point. It may be small and struggling, but it’s never let her down, unlike gorgeous, infuriating Ben Kilpatrick.

He left Haven Point behind years ago, for good reason. Yet seeing the town through McKenzie’s eyes could change his mind.

If he can resolve the animosity crackling between them, Ben may have found the place where he can build ties and find healing, a place where love arrives when it is least expected.

I would love to live in Haven Point, a picturesque lake town surrounded by snow-topped mountains and kind, caring residents who are always there for each other. Who wouldn’t? 

McKenzie, the sweet and very capable mayor of this sleepy place, happens to love it more than most. So much so, she is willing to put up with Ben Kilpatrick, the man responsible for destroying more than just the town’s economy.

Ben on the other hand, has his own demons to put to rest, and then leave, asap. The last thing he needed was some pretty, perky mayor forcing the virtues of Haven Point down his throat. 

For McKenzie and Ben, this is a blessed second chance, and I enjoyed seeing their relationship change and grow.  

If you like sweet love stories, speckled with cute puppies, giggling kids and lots of small town intrigue, Redemption Bay is the book for you. 

Thank you @MillsandBoon for the invite to participate in this wonderful #Blogtour.

Book Review – The Earl’s Countess Of Convenience

Mills & Boon kindly asked me to review The Earl’s Countess Of Convenience by Marguerite Kaye.

A countess in name only…

…tempted by a night with her husband!

Part of Penniless Brides of Convenience: Eloise Brannagh has witnessed first-hand the damage unruly passion can cause. Yet she craves freedom, so a convenient marriage to the Earl of Fearnoch seems the perfect solution!

Except Alexander Sinclair is more handsome, more intriguing, more everything, than Eloise anticipated. Having set her own rules for their marriage, her irresistible husband might just tempt Eloise to break them!

The Earl’s Countess Of Convenience is an enjoyable historical romance with engaging characters, who portray a real sense of the societal norms in the early eighteen hundreds.

Though I found the book slow at the beginning, it picks up soon as the chemistry between Eloise and Alexander develops.

I was left guessing about the ending, till the ending!

Thank you Mills & Boon and Netgalley for the opportunity review The Earl’s Countess Of Convenience.

Book Review – You Say It First

Mills & Boon have kindly asked me to provide my honest review of You Say It First by Susan Mallery. So here it is:

81eJdDLBd-L__AC_UL436_ You say it first

You Say It First by is a gently simmering romance set in a wedding town.

Pallas Saunders adores running her quirky wedding venue, Weddings in a Box. But if she can’t turn the floundering business around, she’ll have no choice but to trade taffeta for a stable career.

Sculptor Nick Mitchell is struggling to fill his time between commissions, so takes a day job as carpenter at Weddings in a Box… The job has its perks—mainly the captivating owner, Pallas.

Then when a desperate bride wants something completely new, Nick inspires Pallas to think outside the box. Could building a dream wedding be the start of their fairytale?

Though I usually prefer love stories with a tad more tension and conflict, I did like this book mainly because of the sweet lead characters and their colourful friends and family. The novel paints an interesting image of life in a small town, where views are entrenched in legacy and history.

For those who enjoy a cosy, slow-burner to while away the winter blues, #YouSayItFirst would be a good choice.

My gratitude to Mills & Boon and NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book.
