Costa Del Churros by Isabella May #BlogTour #BookReview #Giveaway (@IsabellaMayBks) @crookedcatbooks @RaRaResources #CostaDelChurros #RachelsRandomResources #FictionCafeWriters

Costa Del Churros

Another blog tour today (not mega-relevant as this book was published yesterday but can anyone tell me why so many books are being published today, there seem to be dozens!) and this one is for Costa del Churros by my fellow Fiction Cafe Writer, Isabella May, so I am delighted to be taking part. My thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for my place on the tour and to the author and publisher for my copy of the book which I have reviewed honestly and impartially. There is also a fabulous giveaway after the review so make sure you enter that.

Costa Del Churros Cover

“The rain in Spain doesn’t mainly fall on the plain…

Brits abroad Belinda, Julia, Laura and Georgina need more than the sweetness of churros with chocolate dipping sauce to save them from their unsavoury states of affairs.

Cue Carmen Maria Abril de la Fuente Ferrera, the town’s flamboyant flamenco teacher! But can she really be the answer to their prayers? 

One thing’s for sure: the Costa del Sol will never be the same again.”

Anyone who doesn’t really, really want a sugar-coated churro and some chocolate sauce to dip it in after seeing that book cover? No, didn’t think so, it must be the tastiest looking book cover I’ve ever seen.

This is the story of four very different women who become unlikely friends when they are drawn together in a flamenco class run by the enigmatic Carmen on the Costa del Sol and it could not get more Spanish if it tried. Isabella really brought the whole feel of the location alive and the fish-out-of-water feeling of the non-Spaniards who have made it their home.

To begin with, I found it hard to warm to a couple of the characters, as they are all very different to me but as the book progresses they all grew on me, much as they grew on each other as they learn things about themselves over the course of the novel and the flamenco classes. Isabella’s writing style is very chatty and easy to read and the characters all too believable, even in their more extreme moments so it is easy to get carried along by their stories. There are a number of very astute observations in the book, it cuts close to the bone in places and might make you wince with its accuracy, and it is also quite funny, so plenty to keep the reader entertained.

Having read Isabella’s previous two books, I felt like she has really got in to her writing stride in this one and it was the most comfortable and convincing for me. I think it really grasps the nature of female friendship and the kind of dilemmas that women are faced with, at the same time as having that touch of the exotic (for those of us who aren’t living the ex-pat lifestyle anyway) that takes us away from our every day lives. A really good read for anyone looking for an escapist read now that the nights are drawing in and we are all missing the hot summer days.

Now, where are my churros, please?

Costa del Churros is out now and you can get your copy here.

The Holiday Cruise by Victoria Cooke #BookReview #BookBirthdayBlitz (@VictoriaCooke10) @HQDigitalUK @RaRaResources #TheHolidayCruise #NetGalley

The Holiday Cruise

Delighted to be taking part in the blog blitz today for the book birthday of The Holiday Cruise by my fellow RNA member, Victoria Cooke. Have a very happy book birthday, Victoria and thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for my copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly. My thanks also to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in the blitz.

The Holiday Cruise Cover

“As if it weren’t enough to be cheated on by her husband of ten years, Yorkshire lass Hannah Davis is losing her beauty salon business too. Luckily, her big sister is there to pick up the pieces, but Hannah is desperate to find some independence.

Impulsively, Hannah applies for a spa job…on a cruise ship! Christmas in the Caribbean, springtime in the Mediterranean, what’s not to like? But, despite being in her thirties, Hannah has never done anything on her own before, and she’s terrified.

As the ship sets sail, Hannah has never been further from home…or closer to discovering who she is and who she wants to be.”

This book has the perfect recipe for a light romantic read. It has a compelling heroine, a dastardly man doing the dirty, a great relationship between sisters, a suitably difficult dilemma for the heroine to deal with, new friends, a potential new romance and fabulous exotic locations beautifully described along the way. Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir for several hundred pages before turning out the perfect beach (or any other time for that matter) read. (Can you tell I am writing this just after watching Bake Off?)

We start the book with our heroine, Hannah, at the lowest of low points in her life. Her husband has left her for the other woman and, in the course of mourning her marriage, she has let her business go to the point of no return. It looks like she is out of options until she is given the idea of applying to work on a cruise ship, and a chink of light appears. Encouraged by her stalwart sister, she decides to go for it and the rest of the book follows her experiences on the ship.

Oh how much I enjoyed this book. I felt all the highs and lows with Hannah along the way. I really wanted to punch Daniel in the face for what he did to Hannah, and I’m really not a violent person, which just goes to show how quickly I was sympathising with Hannah. I loved her sister galloping to her side, it reminded me of how much my sisters support me in times of need, and the ladies in the village backing her up as they shun her wayward ex and his floozy. Victoria had me on side from the very beginning and I was desperate for Hannah to take the chance on the cruise.

Once she got on board, I was fascinated by the insight into working behind the scenes on the cruise ship and all the new friends she makes on board. The visits to the ports were fabulous – armchair-travelling at its best which is one of my favourite things to do in books, especially now the evenings are getting longer and darker and I am missing the summer sunshine.

The thing I enjoyed most about this book was that Hannah and her personal growth and development was the focus o the book, rather than her finding a new romance. There is a romantic aspect to the book, but it is not the central theme. This is a book about a woman overcoming personal challenges to find out who she is and what she wants out of life, with or without a man, and that is more interesting and compelling to me than a woman jumping from one relationship straight into another because she can’t be alone. Women are tougher than that!

This is a fabulous, light and delightful read, the perfect contemporary read. Grab yourself a slice for a sweet treat.

You can get your copy of The Holiday Cruise here.. Victoria’s new book, It Started With A Note will be published in December.

The Oddest Little Book Shop by Beth Good #BookReview #BlogTour (@BethGoodWriter) @QuercusBooks @RaRaResources #TheOddestLittleSeries #Book

The Oddest Little Series

We are on to Book 4 in the Oddest Series and the one I have been looking forward to the most, which is The Oddest Little Book Shop by Beth Good. thanks to Rachel Gilbey and the author for having me on the tour and to the author for my copy of the book.

Oddest Little_BOOK SHOP

“After ten long years away, television star Daisy Diamond is finally going home.

She’s not back at the gorgeous seaside resort of Port Pol in sunny Cornwall five minutes before she realises the mistake she’s made. Her childhood sweetheart Nick Old – affectionately known as ‘Devil’ – is still living there, running the local bookshop, and he is determined to rekindle their flame.

Daisy is no longer the dewy-eyed romantic of her school days. Her life may not have gone according to plan, but she’s not afraid to show Nick how much she’s grown since he famously dumped her at the school leavers’ disco. 

Even if it means bending her heart out of shape a little . ..”

We’re back to Cornwall today but this time in the little town of Port Pol, where actress Daisy Diamond has returned to her childhood home for a little R&R and to house sit her childhood home. But she realises it may have been a mistake when her old flame Nick, who dumped her at 18, appears and she realises she may not be over him.

I was really impressed by how the author has made the feel of this book very different from the one I reviewed yesterday. Her characters are all very distinctive, with clear and individual personalities and motivations which are well established and defined in the books which makes it very easy to relate to them and their stories and become emotionally invested. Although, there is another brooding ‘devilish’ Cornish man in this book, but can a girl really ever have too many of those?

Daisy has a whole different set of problems to deal with in this book from Annie yesterday. Lecherous co-stars, persistent paparazzi, naked yoga and a slightly mad ex-schoolfriend all impede the path to true love in another enticing read from Beth Good which will provide you with an hour or so’s pleasant diversion from real life when you need it.

I’ve really enjoyed reading this series by Beth Good – as tenuously connected as they are. They are just the kind of thing you need on your Kindle to brighten your day when you’ve got and hour to spare and are looking for a literary pick-me-up. Pure escapism, well-written and a joy to read. I’ve loved them so much that, even though I’m not on the tour for it, I will be reviewing the final book in the series, The Oddest Little Cornish Teashop, on the blog next week. The fact that I’ve forked out my own hard-earned pence to buy the book should tell you all you need to know about the quality of the writing and story-telling.

The Oddest Little Book Shop is out now and you can get your copy here.

The Oddest Little Beach Shop by Beth Good #BookReview #BlogTour (@BethGoodWriter) @QuercusBooks @RaRaResources #TheOddestLittleSeries #Beach

The Oddest Little Series

Book 3 for me in the Oddest Little series which is The Oddest Little Beach Shop by Beth Good. My thanks again to Rachel Gilbey of Rachel’s Random Resources for allowing me to continue to be a part of the tour and to the author for my copy of the book.

Oddest Little_BEACH SHOP

“From the first day of Annie’s arrival in the sleepy Cornish resort of Polzel, next-door neighbour Gabriel seems determined to make her life difficult.

Despite his sexy looks and angelic name, Gabriel behaves like an ogre to everyone, and has apparently been that way since losing his wife in a surfing accident. Annie would do far better, her friend Claudia urges her, to focus her attentions on Jamie instead. Jamie’s the hottest lifeguard in the village – and her co-worker in the Polzel beach shop.

But when Polzel’s famous annual pie-rolling contest sees Annie and Gabriel forced together, it turns out Annie might have a thing for big Cornish ogres after all . . .”

This book is set in Cornwall! And in a shop! Hurrah, we can concentrate on the contents rather than the cover, which is fabulous because the contents are well worth your attention.

I loved everything about this little novella. The setting, in the gorgeous little Cornish town of Polzel, which Beth brings beautifully to life with clever descriptions of its position at the bottom of a hill nestled on the beach between two cliffs and with a lovely little town and gorgeous beach.

The characters, consisting of a clutch of charming townsfolk in a friendly community, hot life guards, pouty teenagers, gruff farmers, sexpot journalists – how many interesting people can pack in to one small community? And, at the heart of it all, Annie – newly responsible for bringing up her orphaned nephew without a clue how to be a mum – and brooding widower Gabriel, cast in the perfect dark Cornishman mould. Fans of Poldark will adore him.

The plot, packed with drama and humour. Dry land surf lessons, a pie-rolling event and peril on the high seas, this tiny book packs a mighty emotional punch. Pick this up and you will get plenty of bang for your buck to keep you racing from start to finish. As a single mum myself, I’m not buying into the idea of celibacy until the kids graduate though, not while there are hot men in trunks on the horizon!

Another great novella from this author, I’m really glad I have discovered her work. Perfect for someone looking for a quick read that delivers a lot in a small package.

The Oddest Little Romance Shop by Beth Good #BookReview #BlogTour (@BethGoodWriter) @QuercusBooks @RaRaResources #TheOddestLittleSeries #Romance

The Oddest Little Series

Another day, another Oddest book on the blog. Today I am reviewing the second (for me, they aren’t a series to be read in a particular order, all standalones so have at it in whatever order you fancy) of the five books in the Oddest Little series, The Oddest Little Romance Shop. Again, my thanks to Rachel Gilbey and the author for having me on the tour and for my copy of the book which I have reviewed honestly.

Oddest Little_ROMANCE SHOP

“Izzie has the perfect plan for a perfect life. Work hard, get married, settle down, start a family. But when a mysterious Valentine’s day card arrives, asking in a bold scrawl, ‘Will you marry me?’, it upends everything.
Because Izzie thought she’d found Mr Right – and the card isn’t from him.

Puzzled, she sets out to discover the identity of her secret admirer . . . and is shocked by the truth. Torn in two directions, Izzie doesn’t know what to do.

Should she stick to the plan, or is it time to take life in a bold new direction?

Another quirky, charming novella in the ‘Oddest Little Shop’ series from popular romantic comedy writer Beth Good.”

Things continue to bemuse me about the covers, and in this case the titles, of these books, since this one doesn’t even have a shop in it at all. (I did wonder what a ‘Romance’ shop would be). For some reason the publishers have decided to make a series connecting books via things that aren’t in all the books which is purely a marketing decision and is the ‘oddest’ thing about these books but I am not going to let that distract me any more, because the stories and the writing themselves are a delight.

This book centres around Izzie, who is desperate to get married and start her perfect family life and has decided that this starts with marrying Norman. So we know there is something amiss early on because the perfect romantic hero can’t be called Norman! The apple cart gets upended when a Valentine’s card arrives containing a marriage proposal, that isn’t from Norman.

This is another whirlwind tale as Izzie sets out to find out the identity of the card’s sender and, when she does, things spin off in an unexpected direction with the reader carried along for the ride.

I loved the premise of this book, a secret and unexpected marriage proposal  coming out of the blue, and the flashbacks to Izzie as a child were really lovely and moving. Again, the characters are beautifully written and sympathetic where necessary and suitably unsympathetic elsewhere. This book also had quite a strong comedy streak running through it which I really enjoyed.

The ending of the book is the literary equivalent of an episode of Scooby Doo and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. A great read and highly recommended for a quick romantic fix. Just don’t expect a shop to feature in it anywhere. Bizarre. I’m looking forward to reviewing another two in the series next week, so check back then.

The Oddest Little Chocolate Shop by Beth Good #BookReview #BlogTour (@BethGoodWriter) @QuercusBooks @RaRaResources #TheOddestLittleSeries #Chocolate

The Oddest Little Series

I’m really excited to be reviewing this new series of novellas by Beth Good over the next week or so. Watch out for reviews of all five but I’m kicking off today with The Oddest Little Chocolate Shop. My thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for including me in the tour and to the publisher and the author for my copy of the books which I have reviewed honestly and impartially.

Oddest Little_CHOCOLATE SHOP

“Treat yourself to something delicious . . .

When Clementine discovers that Monsieur Ravel’s beloved chocolaterie is about to close, she rushes to rescue it – without thinking through the consequences.

A lost Persian cat, a depressed but utterly gorgeous French chocolatier, an allergic shop assistant in search of true love, the oddest little chocolate shop Clementine has ever seen . . .

Can Clementine save them all, or has she bitten off more than she can chew?

You know the saying ‘Never judge a book by its cover’? I’ve always thought this was nonsense and I buy books because of the cover all the time. Well, in this case, it is a pertinent adage that should not be ignored because the cover of this book has NOTHING to do with the story inside, which is set in a chocolate shop in an old Victorian building in  London, with not a sniff of a thatched cottage or a sea breeze anywhere to be seen!

Putting that aside (why this cover though? Very confusing!), this is a lovely little novella with which to while away an hour. Clementine stumbles into Monsieur Ravel’s chocolate shop one day, and life takes a rapid turn for the better from there on.

Because this is a novella, and therefore very short, the plot develops rapidly, so rapidly it might take your breath away in fact. The likelihood of any of us finding a sexy Frenchman who owns a chocolate shop to sweep us off our feet in the space of a literary hour are slim to say the least – this is the stuff of fantasy. But hey, sometimes that is what we are looking for in a book, right, and there is nothing wrong with that at all. if you suspend your disbelief and lose yourself in the story, you will thoroughly enjoy it.

This is not hard to do as the writing flows easily and is warm and chatty, the characters are appealing and easy to like and the whole book is sweet and undemanding. Like sitting down under a cosy blanket with a big mug of tea and a bar of Galaxy. Pure indulgence. Treat yourself. Just ignore the cover!

A Wedding in Cornwall (Books 7 -12) by Laura Briggs #BookReview #BlogBlitz (@PaperDollWrites) @RaRaResources #AWeddingInCornwall #Cornwall

A Wedding in Cornwall

Excited to be taking part in the blog blitz today for the second and last set of novellas in Laura Briggs’ popular A Wedding in Cornwall series, collected together in a single volume. My thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part and to the author for my copy of the book which I have reviewed honestly and impartially.

A Wedding in Cornwall - Anthology A Wedding in Cornwall 7-12 Cover

“The last six novellas in the UK bestselling series A WEDDING IN CORNWALL are now available in one collection! Join American event planner Julianne in her final set of adventures ‘across the pond’ in beautiful Cornwall. From celebrity sightings to a local talent show, from a charming village fete to a secret Cornish garden, there’s never a dull moment for Julianne and her Poldark-esque true love Matthew in the quaint village of Ceffylgwyn. 

This collection contains:

A Romance in Cornwall

 A Star in Cornwall

 A Sewing Circle in Cornwall

 A Talent Show in Cornwall

 An American in Cornwall

A Garden in Cornwall

 Exclusive bonus materials include a sneak peek of the author’s all-new 2019 Cornish romance series!”

I must admit that, although I have it on my Kindle, I have not managed to squeeze the collection of the first six novellas into my reading schedule yet, so I have gone in to the second collection completely cold and without knowing anything about the characters or their back story.

This did not matter too much, as each of the six novellas within this collection can be read as standalones and the author gives us enough of the back story for the new reader to be able to keep up with the plot. However, I do think I would have been able to immerse myself more quickly and thoroughly in these stories if I had started from the beginning and had the full history of Julianne and Matthew’s romance to fall back on. As it was, I did feel a little detached from the stories, particularly as they mostly do not form the central plot of these books but are more peripheral to stories that are happening to people around them, which I get the impression is different from the first six novellas in the other collection.

I really loved the setting of these stories, centring as they do around the little Cornish village of Ceffylgwyn, Julieanne and Matt’s lovely cottage of Rosemoor and Cliffs House where they both work. Laura imbues the books with the atmosphere and character of Cornwall, full of warmth and charm so anyone who is fond of this location will find much to appreciate here.

The novellas are all individual stories and are easy to dip and out of for a quick fix of an easy and pleasant read. Each story has a different and quite sweet premise. Some of them are a little twee, so if you don’t have a very sweet, reading tooth, you might find them a bit sugary. However, those who are less cynical and revel in romance will enjoy them very much and the short length make them the ideal bite-size read when you only have time for a literary snack, rather than a gourmet meal. The book equivalent of a packet of treat-size Twixes.

A Wedding in Cornwall – Books 7 – 12 is out now and you can buy a copy here. If you would like to catch up on the first six novellas first, A Wedding in Cornwall – Books 1-6 is available here. I will be reviewing Laura’s new book One Winter’s Day on the day of its publication, which is the 9 October.
