When your dog plays Cupid…what could possibly go wrong?

Loyal rescue pug Doug wants his adoring owner Julie to find unconditional love and happiness – and he knows she won’t find either in the arms of Luke, her married boss. 

Doug is terrified that Julie will become a lonely cat-lover if she stays single too long, but he can’t let her fall for any more of Luke’s empty promises. Julie needs to move on – and Doug is convinced that Tom, a newly divorced V-E-T, is perfect for her (despite his questionable occupation). 

There’s just one problem: Julie and Tom can’t stand each other.

Doug doesn’t quite understand the quirks and complexities of human relationships, but he won’t let that get in the way of his mission to bring Tom and Julie together. After all, being a ‘rescue’ works both ways…

Matt Dunn has all the best ideas for rom coms, and to have this one narrated via the eyes of Doug the Pug is truly inspired,

Doug is a clever dog and able to understand everything the humans are saying and can sometimes even get them to do things too!

He is determined to help Julie see that Luke isn't right for her, and that the most likely best candidate for her to fall for is Tom. 

And that is despite as Doug says that Tom is a V-E-T - which is how it's phrased continually, so as not to alarm Doug!

I love books written from an animal point of view, and it's great getting into the mind of Doug which is rather realistic - at least I like to think that dogs can think that way.

This is so enjoyable and light hearted and fun, it was a pleasure to read.

The Bromance Book Club was one of Bustle's '21 New Rom-Coms Out In Fall 2019 To Give You Warm And Fuzzy Feelings All Season Long'!

'A you're-gonna-burn-dinner book because you will not want to put it down. Laugh out loud with tons of heart, this is an absolutely adorable must read' Avery Flynn, USA Today bestselling author

'A delightful, fast-paced read with the perfect mix of laugh-out-loud and swoony moments - every town should have a Bromance Book Club' Evie Dunmore, author of Bringing Down the Duke

'It is the reading aloud in this story that ultimately wins my heart, and shows that everything worth knowing can be learned from romance' kc dyer, author of Finding Fraser

With his passion for romance novels, it was only a matter of time before Vlad took up the pen to write a novel the Bromance Book Club would swoon over.

He's ready to create his own sweeping romance - both on and off the page.

Elena Konnikova has lived her entire adult life in the shadows. As the daughter of a Russian journalist who mysteriously disappeared, she escaped danger the only way she knew how. She agreed to marry her childhood friend, Vladimir, and move to the United States, where he is a professional hockey player in Nashville.

Vlad, aka The Russian, thought he could be content with his marriage of convenience. But it's become too difficult to continue in a one-sided relationship. He joined the Bromance Book Club to learn how to make his wife love him, but all he's learned is that he deserves more.

The Bros are unwilling to let Vlad forgo true love - and this time they're not operating solo, joining forces with Vlad's senior citizen neighbours, a group of meddling widows who call themselves The Loners. But just when things finally look promising, the danger from Elena's past life intrudes. Now the book club face their first-ever life-or-death grand gesture as they race to a happy ever after.

How I love this series, and it seems to get better and better with each book. 

We finally get to know more about Vlad, the Russian than in the previous books and the truth about his marriage to Elena. 

And once again the men of the book club are on hand to intervene and get the course of true love running smoother!

I was very happy to see that the one aspect of Vlad's character I wasn't keen on in the previous books has now been fixed by way of his new diet, and as a result I couldn't help falling for him a bit myself.

Well after wanting to hit him and Elena for their ease of managing to avoid conversations that may actually improve their lives.

And the whole finale of the book I adored, it was action packed, and I was on the edge of my seat.

This was s sheer joy to read and I really hope to see more from the Bro's as soon as possible.

For once, things are going well for thirty-year-old Kerra Shaw. She has a fulfilling job helping small businesses in the local community, she is within a few minutes' walk of all the people she loves best, and most importantly, she has finally got together with her childhood sweetheart, Ross.

It's not all plain sailing, though, because they have to keep their relationship a secret. The feud between their families still rages on, and Kerra doesn't want to pour fuel on its flame and risk losing everything.

But Kerra should know better than anyone that secrets don't stay hidden for long in a community like Penvennan Cove...

An uplifting and feel-good romance novel for fans of Lucy Coleman, Jessica Redland and Lisa Hobman.

Please don't make me wait for the next book, I really want to read it, but fear it may not have been written yet! This was a glorious second book to this trilogy, and builds on the base from the first book and enhances everything so much. 

Although Kerra is still our main character, we get embroiled into the lives of so many others in the cove, that it feels like its a real story about a community.  A small Cornish community that may not be that keen on change. 

Kerra feels like a far more rounded character now, and I liked her a whole deal more, and am really now believing in the relationship she is in, while feeling the Romeo and Juliet vibes from the relevant fathers! 

There is so much I thoroughly enjoyed but if I mention things they are likely to be spoilers for book 1, or this one, and give too much away about the storylines that may still need to be completed in book 3. 

I just know that I have gone from liking the series with book 1, to ridiculously eager for the last book to see how everything will conclude. So from that point of view Making Waves at Penvennan Cove has certainly done its job, and set everything up incredibly well.

Alison feels like she's losing her mind. She is convinced that her ex-husband Jack is following her. She is certain she recognises the strange woman who keeps approaching her at work.

She knows she has a good reason to be afraid. But she can't remember why.

Then the mention of one name brings a lifetime of memories - and the truth - crashing back...

An electric, page-turning thriller perfect for fans of Louise Candlish, Adele Parks and Erin Kelly.

From a gripping prologue that certainly intrigued me, to the last pages that surprised me, this is certainly a book that kept me on the toes. 

I found part one a bit tricky to read,  purely I could tell there was the potential for unreliable narrators and with Alison giving us the story in the present, and Jack in the past,  I couldn't get sort the timelines in my mind, let alone what may actually be real. 

For the title is rather fitting, and nothing is initially portrayed as simply as it may first appear.  I did guess one of the reveals quite early on, but everything else definitely surprised me. 

By the time the book enters the second part and further on, I was utterly gripped and whizzed through the pages, not being able to turn them fast enough, as I needed to know what was going to happen next. 

And I was trying to guess, and kept getting things wrong, and was also impressed by the writing and how into both characters heads I was able to get.  

I have a feeling this may be a book that stays with me for a long while. I can't believe this is a debut novel, it is so good! What a book, what a concept. Utterly brilliant.

Can Kerra's Cornish hometown offer the fresh start she needs?
When Kerra left the quiet Cornish town of Penvennan Cove for the bright lights of London she didn't look back. But after the death of her mother, she's decided it's time to face her past and return to the place she called home. Her father needs her, and perhaps she needs him more than she's willing to admit?

Tackling town gossip, home renovations and a flame from her past, it's not quite smooth sailing for Kerra. Ross is the bad boy she was meant to forget, not a man who still sets her heart aflutter. As he helps bring her dream home to life, they begin to break down the barriers that have been holding them back and in the process learn things about themselves they never thought possible.

As friends old and new come together, the future in Penvennan looks bright.

A lovely start to a brand new series. 

The Cornish town of Penvennan Cove is a gorgeous setting, and I loved getting to know all the various people that live there. 

I especially loved the stories of the friends that Kerra was trying to help, while being frustrated with her views on love and romance and relationships 

Linn B Halton is very good at writing about house makeovers, and this was no exception. I could see the renovations in the cottage oh so clearly and loved what Kerra was doing to the place.  I also really enjoyed Ripley the cat who seems rather smart! 

This is a really good start to a new series, and I'm very eager to see how it progresses from here.

It only takes a second...

For life to change forever.

Elena Godwin could never have known that her dream holiday to Mexico would change her life forever. She thought that she was in charge of her own destiny. But on a gorgeous summer evening, her whole world is ripped from her feet in a single moment.

Ten years later, she still can't forget the face of the stranger who held her whilst everything she knew was destroyed. Thrown back together again, Elena starts to uncover the truth around that fateful night - and questions whether she made the right decision all those years ago.

She only met him for a moment, but maybe it's not too late...

Such an impressively compelling story.

I could hardly put it down during the big thing that specifically connects Elena, Harry and Alex together in a multitude of ways.

I have never read such a detailed description of that specific occurrence and the best I can liken it to is a a scene in Neighbours that came to me while I was reading.

It's heart-breaking, heartwarming, incredibly addictive and just a phenomenal read. 

I really couldn't guess what would happen next at any point, and it's told so sensitively and gives just a unique basis for this story. 

Truly wonderful and another hit surely for the always impressive Debbie Johnson.

Secrets, betrayal and shocking revelations await in Sweden’s stunning holiday islands . . . The Hidden Beach is the addictive page-turner by the internationally bestselling author, Karen Swan.

Two’s a love story. Three’s a crowd.

In Stockholm’s oldest quarter, Bell Everhurst loves her job working as a nanny for the rich and charming Hanna and Max Mogert, caring for their three children.

But one morning, everything changes. A woman from a clinic Bell has never heard of asks her to pass on the message that Hanna’s husband is awake. But the man isn’t Max.

As the truth about Hanna’s past is revealed, the consequences are devastating. As the family heads off to spend their summer on Sweden’s idyllic islands, will Bell be caught in the crossfire?

Karen Swan never ceases to amaze me with her creativity and truly spectacular storylines. 

And she has done so once more with The Hidden Beach which is set in Stockholm and on the archipelago of islands too.

It is a stunning backdrop to a story that kept me on the edge of my seat unsure which directions it could possibly turn in next and being continually surprised. 

I was completely drawn into the lives of all these characters, and had a real soft spot for Linus especially, for the incredibly tricky position he is now in. 

And Emil is a rather complicated character and he felt well researched with regards his medial needs.

An very enjoyable and entertaining book from Karen Swan who has recently been surpassing her already excellent standards with each new release she puts out.

Daisey Garrett wakes up in a hospital bed. She remembers her boyfriend has left her for another woman, but she doesn’t remember what happened to her the night she was attacked in her own home.

Daisey shouldn’t be alive but against all odds, she’s survived an ordeal most would never recover from.

But Daisey’s mind is broken. She’s on edge, drinking too much and, despite the painful breakup, finds herself in bed with her ex, Luke. And while she desperately tries to keep herself together, she can’t shake the feeling that she is being watched.

Yet the missing pieces of that fateful summer night are beginning to surface…

The lies she told the police.

The lies Luke told her.

Daisey’s memory is flickering like a faulty light bulb, flashing with images just out of reach.

She can’t remember. She mustn’t.

An absolutely gripping, addictive page-turner, The Woman Inside takes you within the tangled mess of people’s lives and the dark secrets they hold close. Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, Before I Go to Sleep and The Wife Between Us.

Wowser! This is one seriously good book, ok replace good with whatever your preferred superlative is that means omg wow and you may get to where I am currently. 

I didn't see it coming, it was set up though incredibly well, and is rather clever and completely unexpected. 

I kind of had suspicions but as to which characters felt a bit off to me, but not anywhere near to the extent that events were revealed. 

And what a rather apt title, so incredibly clever, especially if you think about it after reading the whole book.  So well done to whoever came up with the title! 

And the story drew me in from the start and had me rather hooked. There are so many elements, multiple viewpoints, including sections that are designed to just slightly unsettle you, and have you wondering how they all fit in. 

And then there is Daisy, the one who lived, but now has a form of amnesia so can't recall the day of the attack, but does know what she ends up agreeing to lie for her ex-fiancee which adds doubts to her credibility. 

It has been what feels like a long while since I read the other books in this series, so I can safely say this works well as a standalone, as I had forgotten the recurring character details completely but didn't feel lost at all when focusing on the detective. 

This is one incredibly impressive psychological thriller!

Nothing beats falling in love under the sun, with the sand beneath your feet. This gorgeous, feel-good, and heartwarming summer escape from the bestselling author of The Summer House is perfect for fans of Mary Alice Monroe, Susan Mallery and Nancy Thayer.

For Sydney Flynn, her treasured family home, Starlight Cottage, is her sanctuary. The house on the white sands of Firefly Beach, surrounded by glittering turquoise waters, is the perfect place for her fresh start. That’s until her knees almost buckle at the sight of Nate Henderson.

As teenagers, Sydney and Nate whispered sweet nothings and promised “forever” to each other. Sydney thought they were perfect. She never imagined that her childhood sweetheart was going to end things out of the blue and with no explanation, ruthlessly driving away from her and never looking back. She has spent the last decade piecing herself back together, and trying to figure out exactly what went wrong.

And now the man who ripped apart her heart is back. The down-to-earth son of a fisherman she used to know, forever in beach t-shirts and flip flops, is well and truly gone – in his place is a successful songwriter in a swanky designer suit who’s totally out of place in the small town she calls home.

All of a sudden, Nate wants to make it up to Sydney, yet how can she find it in her heart to forgive him? But when a new development threatens her beloved Starlight Cottage, Sydney needs all the help she can get, and her plan of avoiding Nate is suddenly impossible. Can they overcome their past to save Firefly Beach and the house that holds so many memories for them? Or will the town they adore, and the love they had for one another, be lost forever?

This has left me with a giant smile on my face and a feeling that I would love to visit Firefly Beach for myself, and meet it's wonderful community. 

I really fell for the location almost instantly, Jenny Hale writes such fabulous small town USA romances that I couldn't help but be enchanted by Firefly Beach and Starlight Cottage. 

However the will they - won't they get back together between Sydney and Nate seemed to take forever to be resolved, and although I could tell they had chemistry when they were younger, I wasn't fully invested in whether they had a HEA or not. 

But I was incredibly curious and what kept me reading was discovering the real reason Nate, not only broke Sydney's heart all those years ago, but also why he is back in his hometown now.  

I was interested in Juliana's story as there is far more to her than you may imagine, and I also enjoyed getting to know the rest of Sydney's family and discovering whether or not they would have to sell Starlight Cottage. 

A really enjoyable book from an author that I love reading.

Amber, Lachlan and Raffaele met as teenagers in the Cornish seaside home of kind-hearted foster parents. Years on, the bond between them is unbreakable

But Amber has a secret. She's in love with Lachlan. She can't tell him, because that would never work - he's definitely not the settling-down type. Surely it's better to keep him as a friend than to risk losing him for good?

Raffaele has his own dilemma. He had the dream girlfriend in Vee, until it all went horribly wrong . . . and he still can't understand why. Is Vee hiding something from him?

Now their widowed foster dad Teddy has found new love. Younger, charming and beautiful, Olga seems perfect. But is she? Or will she break Teddy's fragile heart?

Against a backdrop of sparkling seas and sunny skies, the unexpected is always just around the corner. Welcome to Lanrock!

Jill Mansell has always been one of my favourite authors, since being a teen and first discovering her works. I always look forward to her new releases and once again she hasn't let me down and has written another truly marvellous book. 

I loved the setting of Lanrock, and all the various main characters. 

From discovering Lachlan, Amber and Raffaele's pasts in foster care to the wonderful Teddy and May, to how they are in the present, I loved our trio of friends.  All of which clearly still care for Teddy and want what's best for him, although question marks over whether Olga is right for him is another matter. 

Must say Olga has hidden depths and I loved seeing how she is presented and how we get to know her over the course of the book.  And then there is Lachlan who is a fabulous chef, known womaniser but has a heart of gold, Amber who makes amazing stained glass installations and Raffaele, a hairdresser who is having and up and down time with his ex. 

We also get the story of Benjie which I was engrossed in, and was a lovely addition to the book, and his mother Peggy is fabulous in a whole other way !

So with memorable and relatable characters, a a great setting, and so many assorted storylines to enjoy, this is a fabulous book to start the year with, and one I whole heartedly loved.

When Hope loses her husband, she fears her happiest days are behind her. With her only connection to London broken, she moves home to York to be near her family and to begin to build a new life.  
Taking a job at the antique shop she has always admired, she finds herself crossing paths with two very different men. Will, who has recently become the guardian to his niece after the tragic death of her parents. And Ciaran, who she enlists to help solve the mystery of an Egyptian antique. Two men who represent two different happy endings.
But can she trust herself to choose the right man? And will that bring her everything she really needs?

The brand new novel from Holly Hepburn, author of Coming Home to Brightwater Bay. 

What a wonderful way to have spent the first bank holiday Monday of the year, in between the pages of this marvellous new novel from Holly Hepburn. 

Originally published in four parts, I've read the complete version and given one of the cliff hangers between the parts, I'd definitely recommend reading it all in one go!  

There are some big storylines that have an arc over all the parts, one of which is the discovering just what is inside a secret box, and finding out all about the discovery, which both fascinated and also hooked me in completely. 

There's also two potential men for Hope, one of which was always my forerunner, and one of them is guardian to his niece, who is rather adorable. 

There's light relief with Hope's new hobby of Belly Dance classes, and I loved her new friend of Iris who is incredibly lively. 

But it's the emporium that I fell in love with, a treasure trove of antiques which has always called to Hope, and she manages to get a part time job there.  Seeing Hope grow in confidence and skill with this job is inspiring to see, just shows with a little luck and some hard work you can really make a go of anything, and Mr Young is a great employer. 

The descriptions of the emporium, and what's inside really captured my imagination, and despite not being a huge fan of history, I definitely felt at home in this shop, and in addition to being rather keen to discover more about the secrets to be uncovered. 

This is yet another fabulous book from Holly Hepburn that I devoured over a few hours, thoroughly enjoying each and every word. Another must read book from an author I happen to love.

Nora Tucker is an ordinary woman from a tiny English village. Gary Montgomery is America's hottest new movie star. Nora's got absolutely ZERO chance with him.

After seeing him on the movie screen, Nora believes that Gary is her soulmate, her one true love, the man she's supposed to grow old and wrinkly with. She knows it sounds bonkers, she knows it’s completely crazy. But sometimes love is crazy!

So... how on earth is this nerdy introverted Plain Jane supposed to get to Los Angeles, infiltrate Gary’s inner circle AND convince him that they’re meant to be?

With the help of a sunny Californian weather girl, a super hot but super grumpy script writer, and a very passionate Adam Levine tribute act, Nora is about to try the impossible and let fate decide her future…

This is utterly bonkers and full of sheer brilliance. 

It is like a breathe of fresh air, a purely joyous romcom that could only ever happen in the movies and really would make a great film. 

Ok it may never happen in real life, but this is fictional and while lost in Nora's world, I was able to believe everything that has happening and enjoy it too. 

For Nora believes in true love and is utterly convinced after watching Gary Montgomery for a minute in his first blockbuster film, that he is her soul mate.

Her sister Imogen in order to prove Nora is delusional encourages her onto a plane to LA to try to meet him and prove it is madness.

And the bright bubbly Kennedy who Nora is staying with is eager to help too. 

It's a riotous, incredibly fun story that I was never completely sure how it would end, but just knew I was enjoying the journey to find out. 

Once more Kirsty Greenwood has written a fabulous book that I couldn't get enough of.  What a joy to read.
