So yes, she’s well and truly learnt her lesson when it comes to love…But then she meets gorgeous teacher Marcus Blair and Eleanor’s self-imposed rules fly out of the window!

The review: It’s been a while since I’ve read any thrillers so I was happy to get to this, a book that definitely does the creepiness and unease thing to a T.  In it we meet Tina, who’s about to be made partner in a firm her husband is also a part of. I’ll admit I didn’t warm to either Tina or her husband, but easily stepped into their lives, a life where one wrong move can push you out big time and there’s a lot of paranoia and people on edge. Enter the new girl who Tina has issues with and who seems to have problems with Tina right back. I sat up straight away on seeing there was allies against Tina so early on and followed eagerly and yet uncomfortably too as things unravveled. This was an unputdownable read that I didn’t always click with but that was gobbled up over an evening as I raced towards a finish that was definitely unpredictable. Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for letting me be part of the blog tour. Rating: 4/5

Sea Holly and Mistletoe Kisses (A Little Hotel in Cornwall Book 3) by Laura Briggs @rararesources @PaperDollWrites #Blogtour #BookReview

qRTnMVaX.png

 

Sea Holly and Mistletoe Kisses Cover.jpg
What they say: Christmas is coming to Port Hewer and the hotel Penmarrow, where Maisie is suffering a case of the holiday blues far from home this year — until Gavin, a young American businessman staying at the hotel through Christmas, talks her into joining him as his partner in the hotel’s ice sculpting competition in a mutual pact to enjoy the holidays to the fullest.

Meanwhile, Maisie experiences the village Christmas season vicariously through Sidney, and continues writing her Poe-inspired story with only Sidney aware of her secret novel. She soon learns, however, that criticism and praise go hand in hand when he takes issue with her latest chapters, which puts pressure on their friendship, too.

But is that what’s really the issue between them? Because handsome Gavin has more than ice sculpting in mind when it comes to Maisie’s time, which comes as a surprise to no one who’s seen them together. As Maisie faces this sudden romantic dilemma, she realizes what she wants most in her life … and faces a question of what her heart wants most, too.

The review:

Another day, another fantastic book that I honestly couldn’t look away from. So you know already how much I adore Laura Briggs’ books, with settings I could fall into, beauty aplenty and just the nicest dousing of quirk!! And so I jumped on this full force, a rugby tackle, if you will, to get my hands on a book I knew I was already in love with (I’m telling you now, run and hide, the gush is about to start …)

We begin, as always, with a letter from the author to the reader.

“Dear Reader, Christmas greetings from the hotel Penmarrow, where twinkling trees and glittering garlands bedeck the halls, and news of a holiday ice sculpting competition adds excitement to the frosty air.”

That’s just the beginning (I feel like leaving you here on a Mic drop but I won’t).

And so we’re back. Christmas is indeed upon us at the hotel but Maisie’s a little preoccupied, not only with the lovely Sidney, who I’m taken with as much as she is, but with her fantastic writing. As well as her previous wip (work in progress) there is also a little aside of an idea for a book/diary type thing that was brilliant in giving us another way of seeing things.

There is, of course, the presence of a mystery, with so many guests to wonder about. And wonder and mull I did!! The comedy was right up my street and I prayed for something to come right for the likable and yet glass-not-very-full Molly.

All in all I’d say get back to the start of this series (And hurry, this book ended on one check of a cliffhanger) and again, you’re welcome for the hours of cosy reading and enjoyment you’ll glean out of this jewel!!

Thanks so much to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review and for letting me be part of the blog tour.

Rating:Again 5 bazillion out of 5!!

The Review: Anyone on Twitter will know I regularly promote this author as I’ve had a few experiences previously with her books and have always fallen in love with the wonder and magic of her romances. Here was beyond no exception, and, actually has catapulted her into my ‘authors I must read any new books of’ (the title of this list is a work in progress!)

I also (Yes, I am getting to the review) think I need to start a ‘best meeting of romantic leads’ list (again I think I’d title it differently), as this year has been a bit of a standout for me for the way  our love interests meet, with so many making me sit up with my hand to my heart and made my romantic senses throb with happiness.

And so we begin. An introduction to Isobel and we’re wandering through the streets thinking of Christmas, which is approaching and we meet a man who’s very obviously not having a great day. I was right there, in the busy, bustling street and got so excited over her fall (horrific of me I know, but her coming to her senses teamed with the obvious attraction was perfection!).

The book moved like this for me as I followed both extremely loveable characters around, actively awwing at their little asides to each other (there’s one point early on where they lean in to adress each other and my heart nearly burst!) and wondering how something so meant to be could be put in such jeopardy and also have an expiry date.

The romance was of the one thousand watt on the smile-o-meter kind, the backdrop the Christmas dream, the characters and story both compelling and so well done and actually this book has made me realise I need to do a round up again this year of all the fantastic Christmas books out there. Basically-go get and you’re welcome!! Thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.

Rating 5 (hundred bazillion) out of 5.

The Review: A living advent calendar. To start with, can you get an actual better premise for a Christmas book? Put that with an author that I already knew to write beautiful romance and smile along romantic comedy and I was one hundred percent in!
This is a cosy, charming, and yet bright book with a range of characters I fully enjoyed. I’ll admit I actually found it very emotional at times and at one stage considered taking a break because I found some aspects so sad, not just that of Adam (which hit me hard, one little hint of how nice he was and what they’d gone through at the end and I was nearly on the floor!).
The Christmas aspect was spectacular, and transported you to Chesterwood and the community as well as any movie could. There were many moments I smiled appreciatively, some lovely romance, very well done everyday and of course a bucket full of heartwarming happenings that made you take a breath, leading to the ending this lovely book deserved. Very much recommended and I look forward to Ms. Tonge’s next book! Thanks so much to Aria for allowing me to be part of the blog tour and for the book in return for an honest review.
