Mishaps in Millrise – a four-(novella)-part romantic spin-off from Mishaps and Mistletoe

If you’re new to the town of , then come and meet the residents. If you fell in love with Phoebe and Jack last Christmas in Mishaps and Mistletoe, then you’ve just been invited to the best reunion ever…

Little Acts of Love: Mishaps in Millrise Part 1

Almost five months have passed since Phoebe and Jack first met in the grotto of a drunken Santa at Hendry’s toy store in Millrise. Since then, Jack and his adorable daughter, Maria, have turned Phoebe’s life around. As she and Jack get closer, Phoebe decides it’s time to put her stagnating career back on track too, which means going for a big promotion at work.

But nothing is ever simple in the strange little world of Hendry’s, and Phoebe is soon wishing she’d stayed on the tills. At home, things aren’t much better as the couple brace themselves to meet their respective in-laws. It’s clear from the start that making friends and influencing people has never been harder. And to make it worse, Phoebe must compete for the affection of Jack’s parents with the perfect girlfriend and mother – who’s been dead for five years…

My thoughts

I really enjoyed this fun first part, It was fun and lighthearted but at the same time it keeps you on your toes by wanting to read more. I love Midnight, she feels like she is going to be Phoebe’s sidekick! Phoebe, I do like her but I can see her insecurities shining through already. With her current relationship with Jack, with her flirty boss Mr Hendry and her new position in Marketing.

It has kept me wanting more for now and I am dead curious to know what will happen next!

Review: Beneath the Moon and the Stars – Amelia Thorne

Beneath the MoonBeneath the Moon and the Stars – Amelia Thorne
Publisher: Carina UK
Publication Date: 18th October 2014
Source: Bought on Amazon UK

Joy Cartier has been to some of the most beautiful places in the world – but none of them have ever felt like home. So moving into a tiny cottage in the idyllic village of Bramble Hill, walking distance from her childhood home, seems like the perfect plan.

That is, until she gets there. The surly inhabitants of Britain’s Friendliest Village are anything but welcoming. Even her neighbour, reclusive Hollywood star Finn Mackenzie, takes one look at her and walks in the other direction.

But when the village animosity steps up a gear, it is the infuriatingly brooding Finn who keeps coming to her rescue. Slowly Joy begins to realise that maybe a happy home isn’t about where you live, but who you’re with…

My Thoughts

Well I absolutely adored and loved this book!! My quick review of all main characters would be:
I want to slap Finn awake, Punch Zach, Hug Casey, fistpump Alex and want to shower Joy with all my love and give her a HEA sigh

Joy is such a loveable and likeable character, even though she’s going through some weird shit after moving into a nice village which is the most friendliest village of Britain! However the people in the village are not really ‘liking’ her. Joy has got a secret and it keeps you guessing for quite some time! She’s been through some heartbreak with her parents and I felt her loneliness for not having a home. The love she has got for her brother is amazing and the fiercely protective love Alex got for his sister is beautiful! It always reminds me of my own brother ^_^

Joy lives next door to Finn and Zach, now Zach I haven’t liked from the beginning but towards the end he finally put his stuff together and I found him a bit more likeable. Which means I really liked the character written by Amelia.
Finn – Oh Finn! I loved Finn from the beginning, but I wanted to slap him awake or sit him down and chat with him for a long time. I would love to take Finn and Casey to the pub, actually I would love to go to the pub and have a fantastic time with all of them!
Finn however needs to sort though his stuff and heartbreaks to finally get where he wants and needs to be with Joy. Overcome his fears and love with all of his heart!

Casey is a cutie and is willing to do whatever it takes for his loved ones, which is quite obvious. Which also results in the BEST WRITTEN WEDDING EVER! It was blooming hilarious, I even woke up my hubby from his slumber when I was laughing so loud! My heart was breaking for Casey and so happy for him later on!

I can definintely recommend this book, it is a definite page turner. It kept me guessing all the way towards the end of the book and rooting for Finn, Joy and Casey! I even loved the minor characters like Darcy and Billy and even Lily 🙂 So cute!

Go go read this book now! And don’t forget to check the awesome competition Amelia has set up which runs till 26th October and you can find on my blog here.

Review: Twitter Girl – Nic Tatano

TwitterGirl Twitter Girl – Nic Tatano
Publisher: Harper Impulse
Release date: 18th September 2014
Genre: Rom Com

Meet America’s Tweet-Heart.

She’s network reporter Cassidy Shea, better known as @TwitterGirl, with more than a million followers thanks to her sarcastic tweets. One hundred forty characters that can take anyone down a notch.

But while brevity may be the soul of wit, it can also get you fired.

When a controversial tweet goes viral the snarky redhead finds herself locked out of the career she loves… and watches her boyfriend take a hike.

Alas, no industry values sarcasm more than politics, and Cassidy becomes a marketable commodity for Presidential candidate Will Becker, a squeaky-clean, stone cold lock to be the next occupant of the White House. This candidate is unlike any other; he’s the country’s most eligible bachelor. He’s also looking for a running mate, and we’re not talking about a Vice President.

Twitter Girl has caught his eye.

Cassidy finds herself swept up in a whirlwind romance that turns her into the next Jackie Kennedy and becomes the favorite to be the next First Lady. The country can’t get enough of America’s First Couple… will Cassidy and Will Becker bring back Camelot?

But an anonymous tip triggers her journalistic curiosity. Is Will Becker all that he seems? The search for the answer teaches Cassidy the meaning of love.
