The Christmas Party by Carole Matthews

When I heard that Carole Matthews had a new Christmas book out called The Christmas Party, I couldn’t wait to read it as I loved her book Calling Mrs Christmas in 2013.

Round and Round by Terry Tyler

Standard

I have read some of Terry Tyler’s previous books and enjoyed them and so I decided to read Round and Round also.

We follow Sophie, who in her past had to choose between 4 men of who to spend her future with. Chris is her boyfriend, a bit of a sponger and a bit boring. Sebastian is a rich painter who sounds cute but there is always something about him that warns danger, stay away. Neil at the theatre sounded lovely and Kieran Greenleaf is a musician, but seemed to boast too much and is a bit lazy. Who should she pick? Read the rest of this entry

Standard

Our honeymoon was a road trip from San Francisco along Highway 1 coastal road to Monterey, Santa Barbara and LA then across the desert to Las Vegas. We packed a lot in but it was an amazing trip along what would have been the old American frontier and wild west! I love the old stories and history of the frontier from wagon trains, how people survived, Native Americans to the gold rush. So I thought O My America! was very suitable reading to take with me on the trip. Read the rest of this entry

Standard

This is the second book I have read by Susan Buchanan. Susan asked me if I would like to read and review this book and as I really enjoyed The Christmas Spirit  this book was definitely on my list to read. The Dating Game also interested me as it is about meeting that right guy through using a dating agency. Read the rest of this entry
