Once again I must thank the wonderful people over at @ChocLituk @SherylBrowne and @NetGalley for allowing me to review #LearningToLove
Another winning book by the lovely Sheryl. Drama, Intrigue, Love, Family Life. Its all in this book. Sheryl should be sponsored by #Kleenex, this is a fab book which had tears running down my face. Great read but wear waterproof mascara if reading on public transport #toptip 😉

Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places … 

Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well. 

Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her husband, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs

The Lonely Hearts Travel Club. Destination India by Katy Colins

image

A BIG Thank You to @UKCarina @Notwedordead and @NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to have a sneak preview and review this funny and non puttadownable book. The description of the places visited and sights, sounds and smells ( not all of the smells haha), really had me craving a madras. This is a great book to pop in your holiday/weekend bag that will make you just want more.

‘A girl’s guide to survival and adventure.’ – Sarah Morgan, bestselling author of Sleepless in Manhattan 
Let yourself go…

Starting the Lonely hearts Travel Club was supposed to be the second chance that gave Georgia Green back her life. She thought it would be just like travelling, but the reality is far from rosy as she realises that starting a new business is definitely not a beach!

So when Georgia finds herself on an impromptu work trip to India she knows something’s got to give! Where has the girl gone who fought so hard to rebuild her life?

The land of Bollywood, gorgeous beaches and the Taj Mahal might just hold the key to Georgia finding her stride again… Only she is about to find out that when in India the country calls the shots – not you. But Georgia’s not going down that easy!

Join Georgia Green for her next big adventure in Bollywood!

Daith Piercing Review. I Love Mine 💜

#DaithPiercing #Migraine #Headaches #Daith #Piercing #Books #Insomnia

Over the next couple of days I shall be blogging about quite a few books I have read recently, and it may take some time.
As I have mentioned in the past, I am a major insomniac so the books keep me company on an evening whilst I am wide awake.
I just thought I would pop a little more on my blog too as I have very few followers to say the least so presume I am boring!!

When I was about 13 I started getting migraines and have had them now for almost 40 years, yes I am an old lady ( boo hiss). Anyway not to bore what readers I have further, I read up on acupuncture and Daith Piercing.

A daith piercing is a piercing in the innermost cartilage fold of the ear. Advocates say it works in the same way as acupuncture, targeting pressure points on the body’s surface to ease discomfort.
Well, 5 weeks ago, I had mine pierced and have not had a single headache or migraine and I’ve even been to 2 rock concerts!!!
I am so impressed with it, I felt I had to share it with the world, or at least my couple of readers haha.

The Summer Escape by Lily Graham

image

Firstly I must thank the fabulous people at @bookouture for allowing me to review this ray of sunshine, and of course @Lilywritesbooks for putting pen to paper 🙂 and of course @NetGalley as if they didn’t exist I would never have discovered you.
I really felt as if I had gone on holiday as I read this book, been transported to Crete sounds blooming marvellous. It was one of those books that made me smile and wish I had been so brave in my younger years to move away to sunny climes. I absolutely loved it from start to finish and really didn’t want it to end. Everyone must buy a copy of this wonderful sunny read as every page gives you an all over glow.

Amongst the beautiful olive groves and sea-front tavernas, summer has arrived on the sun-drenched island of Crete. 

After losing the love of her life, Ria’s life has been on hold. So when her boss becomes completely unbearable she makes the snap decision to run away to the Greek island of Crete, armed only with her passport. 

When Ria finds herself working for eccentric novelist Caroline, she meets handsome vineyard owner Tom. He’s charming, mysterious and Ria starts to wonder if it’s not just the beautiful Greek island that she’s falling for. 

But as Ria gets to know Tom better, she uncovers a tangled web of secrets. What is he hiding? Ria has some secrets of her own. Can she open up to Tom and learn to live again? 

Healthy Speedy Suppers by Katriona MacGregor

Thank You to @kat_macgregor @NetGalley and the publisher too who I cannot for the life of me find on twitter, sorry 😦  . For allowing me to review this  fab book which is guaranteed to fill you up.
Does exactly as it says on the cover. Store cupboard staples brought to life. A great book with wonderful illustrations too.

Bursting with quick, simple and deliciously healthy recipes, Healthy Speedy Suppers will inspire anyone who feels too tired or busy to cook at the end of the day. Katriona MacGregor started her Speedy Weeknight Suppers column for The Telegraph online in 2013, after a move back to exhausting London office life caused a slump in her diet. Resolving to break away from eating ready meals and cheese on toast every night, she began developing recipes that took no more than 40 minutes to make, were packed with good quality, wholesome ingredients, and tasted fantastic.

Where Dragonflies Hover by AnneMarie Brear

image

Thank you ever so much @ChocLituk @annemariebrear and @NetGalley for allowing me to review this thoroughly compelling book.
I have never read any of this ladies work before but can honestly say what a pleasure it was from start to finish.

Sometimes a glimpse into the past can help make sense of the future … 

Everyone thinks Lexi is crazy when she falls in love with Hollingsworth House – a crumbling old Georgian mansion in Yorkshire – and nobody more so than her husband, Dylan. But there’s something very special about the place, and Lexi can sense it. 

Whilst exploring the grounds she stumbles across an old diary and, within its pages, she meets Allie – an Australian nurse working in France during the First World War. 

Lexi finally realises her dream of buying Hollingsworth but her obsession with the house leaves her marriage in tatters. In the lonely nights that follow, Allie’s diary becomes Lexi’s companion, comforting her in moments of darkness and pain. And as Lexi reads, the nurse’s scandalous connection to the house is revealed

The Chocolate Lovers’ Wedding by Carole Matthews

Once again I must Thank @LittleBrownUK @carolematthews and @NetGalley for allowing me to review yet another book, it really is appreciated.

I’d remembered the characters from the last book so I felt as if I were meeting up with old friends. This book as with all of Carole’s work, really makes you want to sit down in a corner and just read quietly whilst chomping on Galaxy. I’m already looking forward to the next encounter, maybe a Galaxy Counter?

The ladies of The Chocolate Lovers’ Club should be gearing up for the wedding of the year but life keeps getting in the way . . .

Lucy is worried about her financial situation and it keeps distracting her. Should she accept an offer of help from an untrustworthy source?

Nadia may have a real chance at finding love but other areas of her life aren’t so rosy. Something needs to change – but what?

Autumn can’t wait to meet someone she hasn’t seen in a very long time. She’s full of hope for the future but then things don’t exactly go to plan . . .

Chantal has been through so much and she’s finally starting to feel settled. The last thing she needs is the kind of bad news that could change her life all over again.

And yet, despite all the ups and downs, the Chocolate Lovers’ ladies know they can get through it all as long as they have each other. They’re not going to let anything get in the way of their happy-ever-afters in . . . The Chocolate Lovers’ Wedding.
