Never has a quote been so relevant to EVERY book worm around the globe (and further!). SO many books, but so little time! The same can also be said for book bloggers. We read that many books so we can share them with our audience, but we find ourselves short of time to write all our thoughts down in a comprehensive review.
This brings us nicely to ‘Mini Review Monday’. A place where, to compliment our current content, we can share with you some of our initial thoughts on books we have been reading over the last week.
Watching Edie – Camilla Way
Beautiful, creative, a little wild… Edie was the kind of girl who immediately caused a stir when she walked into your life. And she had dreams back then—but it didn’t take long for her to learn that things don’t always turn out the way you want them to.
Now, at thirty-three, Edie is working as a waitress, pregnant and alone. And when she becomes overwhelmed by the needs of her new baby and sinks into a bleak despair, she thinks that there’s no one to turn to…
But someone’s been watching Edie, waiting for the chance to prove once again what a perfect friend she can be. It’s no coincidence that Heather shows up on Edie’s doorstep, just when Edie needs her the most. So much has passed between them—so much envy, longing, and betrayal. And Edie’s about to learn a new lesson: those who have hurt us deeply—or who we have hurt—never let us go, not entirely…
I can honestly say I LOVED this book!
From page one, it had drawn me in. The story is split ‘before’ and ‘after’ which initially I though could be a little confusing, but this worked brilliantly, keeping me guessing what may happen and reading right until the very surprising end.
Definitely one I’ll be recommending to other readers, and I’m hoping to read more by this author soon
Kiss The Bride: The Wedding Dress/The Wedding Kiss/Sparks Fly by Lucy Kevin
New York Times phenomenon Lucy Kevin returns to Rose Chalet, the most romantic wedding venue in San Francisco, bringing three more of her beloved wedding stories together in one volume!
The Wedding Dress
Dress designer Anne Farleigh creates pure magic with her ideas and her fabrics. She needs some of that magic to rub off when she meets charming P.I. Gareth Cavendish, who delivers some unexpected news.
The Wedding Kiss
Rose Martin is the owner of Rose Chalet. She’s so busy planning weddings for everyone else that she doesn’t realize her own special someone has been by her side all this time!
Businessman Will Scott only agrees to a feng-shui design consultation to be polite. He thinks the whole thing is hocus-pocus—until he gets to know interior designer Angelina Morgan and his no-nonsense demeanor falls under the magic power of love.
I loved how the characters followed through each short story. Despite them only being short stories I found the characters and stories were well written and found once started I didn’t finish till I’d read the whole story. Definitely wanting to read more from Lucy soon!
