Her inquisitive nature is piqued when a valuable art collection and a bundle of letter s and diaries are found that date back to the 1930’s. Delving deeper, Grace uncovers the story of a young English woman, Connie Levine, who follows her heart to Italy at the end of the Second World W ar.

What I Say:

A new book from Alex Brown is always exciting! She has proven to be one of the most reliable authors around. Her books always bring a smile to my face and usually make me shed a little tear.

Alex creates the most wonderful settings and scenes within her books. The way she describes places draws you straight in and makes you feel like you're really there. In this book, I was whisked away to glorious Italy. The sun was shining, I could smell the citrus in the air and feel the warm breeze. It was heavenly.

Grace and Connie are both wonderful characters to follow. I really enjoyed how their stories unfolded and intertwined. It was exciting and moving at the same time. I related to Grace a lot. I've been through a lot of what she's been through, so watching her grow and develop was wonderful. She inspired me quite a lot. 

I loved the elegance and drama that emanated from Connie's diaries. I cried for her, I yearned to see the places she'd been and I am happy I found the kind of love she did. Her story will touch a lot of people. 

There's nothing I didn't love about A Postcard From Italy! It really was a stunning book! Grab a glass of Prosecco and get reading! You won't regret it! 10/10

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.

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…
