Here is my recent #BookReview #BookBlogger..
I thoroughly enjoyed reading @HelenaFairfax, Penny’s Antique Shop of Memories and Treasures. This feel good romance really had me hooked from the start.
One rainy day in London, Wyoming man Kurt Bold walks into an antique shop off the King’s Road and straight into the dreams of its owner, Penny Rosas.
Kurt certainly looks every inch the cowboy hero…but he soon brings Penny’s dreams to earth with a thump. His job is in the logical world of finance – and as far as Kurt is concerned, romance is just for dreamers.
But when Kurt hires Penny to help refurbish his Victorian house near Richmond Park, it’s not long before the logical heart he has guarded so carefully is opening up to new emotions, in a most disturbing way…
The cover drew me in straight away, it’s clear and crisp. The characters are wonderful, who have their own little quirks.
This book was a heartwarming light read which made me smile, it is true escapism. Readers of any age will really enjoy and be truly fascinated by the lovely antiques mentioned too.
The story is lovely, and an ideal read to have, when you’re tucked up with hot chocolate after a hard day Christmas shopping.
If you need to purchase a gift for someone who adores a truly romantic read, then this really is for you. There is absolutely nothing to dislike in this book, I can most certainly recommend it.
I give this book 5*
You can purchase the book from Amazon
This book by @CarolineJames12 was a joy to read at a very unhappy time in my life, I needed cheering up after losing my much loved little dog.
The cover made me smile as it reminded me of my favourite TV programme as a child ‘ On The Buses’ and the characters where just as much fun.
I laughed out loud, enjoyed love and mystery too. Infact this book has it all and I felt I knew each character personally and didn’t want the book to end.
My book arrived a few days after Bertie died aged 16 and Caroline James helped me smile again.
I give this book 5 *
Britain’s answer to the best Marigold Hotel’
Let the shenanigans begin at the Best Boomerville Hotel …
Jo Docherty and Hattie Contaldo have a vision – a holiday retreat in the heart of the Lake District exclusively for guests of ‘a certain age’ wishing to stimulate both mind and body with new creative experiences. One hotel refurbishment later and the Best Boomerville Hotel is open for business!
Perhaps not surprisingly Boomerville attracts more than its fair share of eccentric clientele: there’s fun-loving Sir Henry Mulberry and his brother Hugo; Lucinda Brown, an impoverished artist with more ego than talent; Andy Mack, a charming Porsche-driving James Bond lookalike, as well as Kate Simmons, a woman who made her fortune from an internet dating agency but still hasn’t found ‘the One’ herself.
With such an array of colourful individuals there’s bound to be laughs aplenty, but could there be tears and heartbreak too and will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?
