This very happy #BookBlogger discovered a brand new Publishing Company called @hideawayfall and I’ve fallen in love!
What a friendly bunch they are and after posting me a copy of @MJonathanLee great new book Broken Branches, I really couldn’t wait to get my reading head on again after a short break of reviewing.
Broken Branches was just what the Doctor ordered.
‘Family curses don’t exist. Sure, some families seem to suffer more pain than others, but a curse? An actual curse? I don’t think so.’
A family tragedy was the catalyst for Ian Perkins to return to the isolated cottage with his wife and young son. But now they are back, it seems yet more grief might befall the family.
There is still time to act, but that means Ian must face the uncomfortable truth about his past. And in doing so, he must uncover the truth behind the supposed family curse.
This was a really enjoyable read, at times I did get confused and had to keep turning back the pages to see if I had missed something until I realised it was a book where one chapter is here and now and the next chapter is from years ago.
There was certainly plenty of mystery to keep the reader thinking, I love books like that. True page turner’s where nothing is as it seems.
This really is a well written book and I would love to see this story as a TV Drama. I would most certainly be hooked. Broken Branches left me wanting more. Maybe I’m just greedy but I seriously enjoyed this book.
I rate this book 5/5

My Thanks to the lovely people over at @bookbridgr @HodderBooks & @emilygiffin for letting me read and review #FirstComesLove
This was a family saga with plenty of turmoil, love, loss and relationship woes.
It was one of those books that you could not put down and just had to turn another page.It was a well written book and kept you thinking until the very end.
I rate this book 8/10
Growing up, Josie and Meredith Garland shared a loving, if sometimes contentious relationship. Josie was impulsive, spirited, and outgoing; Meredith hardworking, thoughtful, and reserved. When tragedy strikes their family, their different responses to the event splinter their delicate bond.
Fifteen years later, Josie and Meredith are in their late thirties, following very different paths. Josie, a first grade teacher, is single—and this close to swearing off dating for good. What she wants more than the right guy, however, is to become a mother—a feeling that is heightened when her ex-boyfriend’s daughter ends up in her class. Determined to have the future she’s always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands.
On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she’s married to a wonderful man, and together they’re raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Yet lately, Meredith feels dissatisfied and restless, secretly wondering if she chose the life that was expected of her rather than the one she truly desired.
As the anniversary of their tragedy looms and painful secrets from the past begin to surface, Josie and Meredith must not only confront the issues that divide them, but also come to terms with their own choices. In their journey toward understanding and forgiveness, both sisters discover they need each other more than they knew . . . and that in the recipe for true happiness, love always comes first.
Emotionally honest and utterly enthralling, First Comes Love is a story about family, friendship, and the courage to follow your own heart—wherever that may lead.
