Blog Tour Stop with Review White Lies and Wishes by Cathy Bramley

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for the fantastic White Lies and Wishes by Cathy Bramley!!



What They Say:

What happens when what you wish for is only half the story...?
Flirtatious, straight-talking Jo Gold says she’s got no time for love; she’s determined to save her family’s failing footwear business.

New mother Sarah Hudson has cut short her maternity leave to return to work. She says she’ll do whatever it takes to make partner at the accountancy firm.

Bored, over-eating housewife Carrie Radley says she just wants to shift the pounds – she’d love to finally wear a bikini in public.

The unlikely trio meet by chance one winter’s day, and in a moment of ‘Carpe Diem’ madness, embark on a mission to make their wishes come true by September.

Easy. At least it would be, if they hadn’t been just the teensiest bit stingy with the truth…

With hidden issues, hidden talents, and hidden demons to overcome, new friends Jo, Carrie and Sarah must admit to what they really, really want, if they are ever to get their happy endings.



What I Say:

I have a confession to make. I own all of Cathy Bramley's books, I met her last year (she's lovely!) but this is the first of her books I've read. I have no idea why as I adored this book so much! I am now going to read the rest of them in quick succession!

This is a true story of female friendship. Jo, Sarah and Carrie all want something to change in their lives and they make a pact to help each other achieve these goals. I'd love to have a group of friends like them. I feel I have a bit of each woman in my personality and having them on my team would be interesting.

Jo is ballsy and strong willed but vulnerable in certain aspects of her life. She is confident, feisty and loyal. Sarah is torn between her baby boy and her career. She is hardworking, passionate and determined. Sadly, she has doubts her choices in life. Carrie is a wallflower, timid and full of self-doubt. But deep down, there is a confident, sexy, strong woman waiting to emerge.

With the help of a Wish List and each other, the three friends have to make decisions about what they really want in their lives. What really matters and what will, ultimately make them happy?

If you ever feel stuck in a rut of a bit fed up, this book is a fantastic pick me up. It will make you think, make you grateful for what you have and will make you smile.  9/10

Thanks to Becky Hunter at Transworld for sending me a review copy in exchange for my honest review.

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

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…

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!

What They Say:
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.
