This Was My Very First Book Review! Wish You Were Here by Victoria Connelly

My Very First Official Book Review, Wish You Were Here by Victoria Connelly


        
Ok, here goes, my very first official book review on my very own blog. Eeeek! Im excited!

What They Say:

“A week on the sunny Greek island of Kethos is just what Alice Archer needs, even if she has to put up with her difficult sister. Stella’s tantrums and diva-like demands are a fair price to pay for crystal-clear waters, blue skies and white cliff top villas.

When Alice meets Milo, a handsome gardener at the villa Argenti, for the first time she suddenly feels beautiful, alluring and confident. But is it just holiday magic or will the irresistible pull between Alice and Milo survive against all odds?”

What I Say:

This book is pure magic! The minute Alice arrived in Kethos, I felt like I was right there with her. I’ve never been to Greece, but I now feel as if I have. Victoria describe the blues of the sea and the sky so beautifully. You feel as if you can smell the summer blossoms and see the serene statues in the Goddess Garden.

Wish You Were Here is perfect summer reading. It makes you believe in true love and happy ever after, without being cheesy or predictable. A sweet, funny, charming, warm and sexy book. Victoria’s best yet! And Milo = sexy!!

A perfect 5/5 for the perfect summer book!

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Character In A Series: DI Natalie Ward written by Carol Wyer

Blog Tour Stop with Review - No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley!

It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire. But as the resorts new owner, Will refuses to play snowball or to deck the halls with anything remotely resembling tinsel!
With customers complaining their Christmas is ruined, Sarah decides it’s up to her to convince Scroogey Will just how magical Christmas can be….
But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
