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.

Blog Tour Stop with Extract - When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!


What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
