What might your family say about you if you weren't in the room....?


Escape with the new Sophie Kinsella romcom about family love, family tensions and family secrets.

Effie's still not over her parents splitting up a year ago and her dad and his awful new girlfriend are posting photos everywhere (with the hashtags #viagraworks and #sexinyoursixties). Now they're selling the beloved family home and holding a 'house-cooling' party, but Effie hasn't been invited.

Then she remembers her precious Russian dolls, safely tucked away up a chimney, and has no choice but to go back for them. She'll just creep in, grab the dolls and leave. No one will know she was ever there.

But Effie can't find the dolls. And as she secretly clambers around dusty attics, hides under tables and tries (and fails) to avoid bumping into her ex-boyfriend, she discovers unexpected truths about her family - and even about herself.

With time running out, Effie starts to wonder if the only way to find out what's really going on with her family is to simply crash the party...

Expect shocking secrets, hilarious mix-ups and an unforgettable romance!

Sophie Kinsella never fails to make me laugh and smile and there were plenty of both to be had while reading The Party Crasher. 

I absolutely loved the concept of Effie crashing a family party, a farewell to the beloved family house, and being able to get in and out to rescue her precious Russian dolls, all in theory without being seen or any other incident. 

She's only not going as she's at odds with her father at the momenta, and especially his new girlfriend Krista.  In fact Krista appears to be a bit of a nightmare, although Effie is the only one of her family that seems to be able to see it. 

To say her plan isn't as simple as it sounds is an understatement, and had it gone according to plan it would have been a far less entertaining story! For this is wonderful from her various hiding places, to the eavesdropping and the amount of secrets she discovers, and things she wishes she could unsee too. 

It's fabulously light hearted fun, pure escapism and totally what I love about the author.  I just couldn't devour this fast enough, while in my garden during the heatwave. 

It's another absolutely joyous story from one of my favourite authors.

Still reeling from the sudden death of her mother, Jess is about to do the hardest thing she's ever done: empty her childhood home so that it can be sold.

But when in the process Jess stumbles across the mysterious Alex, together they become custodians of a strange archive of letters, photographs, curios and collections known as The Museum of Ordinary People.

As they begin to delve into the history of the objects in their care, Alex and Jess not only unravel heartbreaking stories that span generations and continents, but also unearth long buried secrets that lie much closer to home.

Inspired by a box of mementos found abandoned in a skip following a house clearance, The Museum of Ordinary People is a thought-provoking and poignant story of memory, grief, loss and the things we leave behind.

Mike Gayle has hit another home run in terms of book brilliance. 

From such a simple concept, grows a fabulous cast of characters, and an incredibly heartwarming story, that takes a few unexpected turns along the way. 

As much as I loved the characters, it was what they were trying to do, the idea behind The Museum of Ordinary People that really touched my heart.  It is such a fabulous idea, I have no clue if it's based on anywhere real but if this doesn't exist already somewhere in the world, then it really should do. 

In fact I think Mike Gayle should set up his own museum, as it is such a wonderful idea and would bring a bit of love into the world.  So long as it doesn't detract from writing more brilliant books. 

I really enjoyed meeting Alex and found his story as compelling as Jess's. And I was just hooked on everything to do with the book. 

I am once again loving the direction this author has been taking with his most recent books, this is definitely an author going from strength to strength with every book he writes, and as a reader and big fan, I'm very happy to go along for the ride.

A marriage in the spotlight
Joanna Whitman’s high-profile marriage held more secrets than she cares to remember, so when her ex-husband dies, she doesn't know what to feel. But when she discovers that he’s left behind a pregnant young woman, Joanna is forced to act. She knows exactly how brutal the spotlight on them both will be…unless she can find a way for them to disappear.

A beach house hideaway
Ashley Blake is amazed when Joanna suggests they lie low at her beach house in her sleepy Californian hometown. Joanna should be hating her, not helping her. But alone and pregnant, Ashley needs all the support she can find.

A summer of new beginnings
Joanna's only goal for the summer is privacy. All Ashley wants is space to plan for her and her baby's future. But when an old flame reappears, and secrets spill out under the hot summer sun, this unlikely friendship is put to the test…

Sarah Morgan once again goes from strength to strength with this amazing book. 

Possibly her best yet, definitely one of my favourites this is fabulous. 

I really was shocked at some of the links and revelations that are revealed while thoroughly enjoying discovering everything. 

I wasn't really sure what to make of Ashley or Joanna initially but I knew I was intrigued and needed to read on, and they both grew on me fairly quickly, especially once they arrive in Joanna's home town. 

I loved the small town community but also seeing how press invading a life can affect you. 

I loved the characters, the location and the relationships between them all, and the way family is described. 

I was completely absorbed by this story and loved every second of it.

In life, nothing is certain. Just when you think you have it all figured out, something can happen to change the course of everything . . .

Liv Brooks is still in shock. Newly-divorced and facing an uncertain future, she impulsively swaps her London Life for the sweeping hills of the Yorkshire Dales, determined to make a fresh start. But fresh starts are harder than they look and feeling lost and lonely she decides to adopt Harry, an old dog from the local shelter, to keep her company.

But Liv soon discovers she isn’t the only one in need of a new beginning. On their daily walks around the village, they meet Valentine, an old man who suffers from loneliness who sits by the window and Stanley, a little boy who is scared of everyone, hides behind the garden gate and Maya, a teenager who is angry at everyone and everything. But slowly things start to change…

Utterly relatable, hilarious and heart-breakingly honest, this is a novel about friendship, finding happiness and living the life unexpected. And how when everything falls apart, all you need is one good thing to turn your life around and make it worth living again.

What starts off as introductions to seemingly unlinked characters, in fact so unlinked, I had to check the blurb to make sure there might be any logic too it, turns into a really heartwarming story. 

These turn into unlikely friendships with Livie and arguably her rescue dog Harry at the heart of it all. 

Harry is definitely the star of the book, and I also really enjoyed Valentine's and Stanley's stories. 

I wish we had seen more of Stanley as he was so incredibly well written.

There are some surprising turns of events at the book progresses and I really enjoyed discovering them.

A highly enjoyable novel filled with real and relatable characters and situations that you can identify with.

Her new start is about to bee-gin!

Having moved into her mum’s spare room after a disastrous break-up, Kayleigh Harwood is desperate for a fresh start. When she sees an opening for a new beekeeper at Elderflower Grove she jumps at the chance – despite not knowing a thing about bees…

The abandoned manor house holds a mystery of its own – the previous owner vanished years ago – and locals have been inventing stories about the manor ever since. Unable to resist the urge to look around, Kayleigh is shocked to find drop-dead-gorgeous gardener Carey living inside!

Carey explains that the house and surrounding land is at risk of being demolished, endangering the bees, and he has been staying there to protect it.

Convinced the secret of the house holds the key to saving Elderflower Grove’s bees, Kayleigh is prepared to do everything she can to help. But is she ready to find her own happy-ever-after too…?

Escape to Elderflower Grove with this heart-warming summer holiday of a book! Fans of Heidi Swain, Trisha Ashley and Tilly Tennant will love this heart-warming read.

If like me you are scared of bees, then be warned this book contains lots of those black and yellow stripey buzzy monsters! 

I'm aware I should have guessed that from the title but honestly I see this author's name and know I want to read it regardless. 

And although I'm never going to be a fan of bees, I do appreciate the level of detail and research that must have been carried out, in order to give us a great overview on how to be a beekeeper, and just how amazing these little monsters really are. 

But what really caught my attention was Elderflower Grove itself, the grounds, the mystery, even the potential of ghosts initially, all of which is what made this book so so special. 

And the further into the story I got the more hooked I was, and the last quarter was fabulous and everything that I needed it to be and more.   With plenty of completely unexpected revelations, I hadn't guessed anything correctly! 

I loved the setting and the characters, well all the human ones at any rate, give or take the obvious villain, and was always happy to be back between the pages of this story, snatching a few mins here and there as and when I could. 

Although not my favourite by the author, on account of far far far too many buzzy bees being alive, although it was interesting to hear how honey comes out of the hives, it is still a fabulous story from her, and I look forward to her next book.

My heart is less than 1% of my body, it weighs hardly anything; it is only a tiny piece of me, yet it is the part everyone finds most interesting.

Vivi Palmer knows what it's like to live life carefully. Born with a heart defect, she was given a second chance after a transplant, but has never quite dared to make the most of it. Until she comes face-to-face with her donor's mother, Grace, who wants something in return for Vivi's second-hand heart: her help to find all the other people who have tiny pieces of her son.

Reluctantly drawn into Grace's mission, Vivi's journalist training takes over as one by one she tracks down a small group of strangers. As their lives intertwine Vivi finds herself with a new kind of family, and by finding out more about all the pieces that make up the many parts of her, Vivi might just discover a whole new world waiting for her...

What an amazing story. I couldn't get enough of it, and it really did give me all the feels. 

The amount of research that must have gone into all the details regarding transplants and donors is incredible, and I felt as though I learnt a lot from reading this. 

And it was impossible to predict the finale of the book, as it could have gone in some many ways and I couldn't help but read the last third of the book in one sitting, ignoring the world around me, as I had to know what would happen next. 

For fans of the author, who like me are a tad surprised that this book isn't set in Italy, don't worry a rather familiar location does pop up, and provides a stunning backdrop to that portion of the book. 

I think this will really open people's eyes about organ donation and whether or not they wish to be on the donor register.  It seems like such a selfless thing to be able to do and to help others.  

There are a lot of big topics covered in this rather special book, and I couldn't get enough of them all.  I don't read these sorts of emotional, deep books all that often, but when I do, I know I'll be in for a story to really capture my imagination and empathy and this was no exception. 

Just wow, Nicky Pellegrino has truly written a fabulous book here, and I am already eager to see what she writes next.

Sasha Greenhope has a very lovely life. Her marriage is solid, her only daughter is delightful, and the family business is going full steam ahead.

The only blip on the horizon is the upcoming family reunion for her parents 40th wedding anniversary at Chadwell House – the family pile. Sasha just does not fit with her rich family. Her French mother, Delphine thinks everything Sasha does is a faux pas.. And siblings, Adele and Beau, are clearly the favourites, leaving Sasha surplus to requirements

So when Sasha’s husband Ben takes this exact moment to reveal that they are about to go bankrupt, Sasha wants to be anywhere but stuck in a lavish marquee!

Swallowing her pride, and a whole bottle of fizz, Sasha determines to ask her family for help – and maybe even a loan – only to discover that her parents and siblings are all keeping secrets of their own!

Family secrets, warring siblings and a disastrous reunion… what could possibly go right?!

Another brilliant laugh out loud emotional read, perfect for fans of Fiona Gibson, Tracy Bloom and Sophie Ranald!

Sasha has good grounds for jokingly wanting Ben to place and advert for a new family. She doesn't really seem to fit into her own one, and certainly doesn't want to let them know about her true feelings, or their financial position. 

But yet she has to go and spend a weekend in the manor house to celebrate her parents 40th wedding anniversary. 

I could feel her dread at attending from here, and really felt for Sasha, and Ben who seem like regular normal people.  Over the course of the weekend let's say nothing goes smoothly, and there is drama, there are some far too vividly described scenes that made me feel as ill as the characters, there is a mystery behind where on earth the missing earrings are, and there are laughs too. 

But most of all, it is the change in family dynamics as the weekend progressed that I found most fascinating. 

I couldn't get enough of this book, it was a delight to read, and once again another book from the author that I completely and utterly loved.  What a triumph!

Escape to Sandy Cove, where the scent of summer and the sound of wedding bells is in the air!

Ella is in the business of making brides’ dreams come true with yards of white tulle, delicate lace and sparkly sequins.

But Ella’s own love life couldn’t be further from a fairy tale. Recently dumped by her boyfriend and with her best friend’s wedding only months away, Ella feels more alone than ever so she finally accepts her friends’ offers to set her up on a blind date.

But a mix up on the night throws her into the path of Kit, instead.

Kit is most definitely not the man she was supposed to meet, but he could end up changing her life in ways she never thought possible…

A perfectly funny, feel-good summer romance that will whisk you away to sandy beaches and a seaside wedding. Fans of Cathy Bramley, Katie Fforde and Milly Johnson will adore Bella Osborne.

A Wedding At Sandy Cove was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package.

It's always a pleasure to sit down and read a Bella Osborne novel, and this was no exception.  This was an absolute joy to read, it had drama, it had danger, it had a rodent, plenty of humour and it has romance. 

Unsurprisingly this book also contains brides, given that Ella alters wedding dresses so that they fit brides.  She is also a bit of a doormat, but once that has been pointed out to her, I loved seeing Ella grow balls (figuratively speaking!). 

I also really loved her and Kit's dilemma, and how they go about it, plus how it all gets resolved!  

Actually I just loved Kit and most of the characters, except for an ex, one of the brides, and Ella's boss Wanda who is a nasty piece of work. 

We also get chapters focusing on Lucy, who is a divorce lawyer who is rather cynical about love, but is still being a bridesmaid for their best friend Brittany's wedding.  What really caught my attention was the case she is working on, that got under my skin and I really cared about the details of that family. 

This was just a glorious read that I devoured in a couple of afternoons in the garden.  I was able to lose myself in the story, and really enjoyed all aspects of it.  Another fabulous book from Bella Osborne.

Best friends since childhood, Fern Chambers and Stella Shaw have been through everything together and are at a crossroads in their lives.

Carefree Stella has a monumental secret and down trodden Fern’s happy life is not all it seems.

With their 40th birthdays approaching, a luxury holiday to the island of Capri is a chance for them to reconnect, let their hair down and celebrate in style. But untold truths and frustration bubble beneath the surface, turning what should be a holiday of a lifetime into an opportunity to make life-changing decisions.

Far from home, where anything feels possible, secrets are revealed, heartache is shared, love discovered and new friendships forged.

Will their Italian dream turn into a nightmare or lead to newfound happiness?

I absolutely adored the island of Capri when I visited on a cruise ship excursion, so I truly felt transported back there with this wonderful story.

Fern and Stella have been best friends forever and when Stella wins some money on the lottery she decides to treat them to a holiday of a lifetime to celebrate their 40th Birthdays.

What soon becomes apparent is that Stella is hiding things,  that Amber, Ferns daughter may know something about that Fern is oblivious.  Even as a reader I had pieced some of the truth together before Fern.

I was made to feel rather hungry by the tantalising descriptions of Italian food.  And I could really picture Capri as we are taken on day trips. Not to mention a split for a few days of differing holiday plans. 

I suspect I would have gone with Stella on that one!

It's a story of two women making changes in their lives for the better and I devoured it over the course of an afternoon in the garden that was so hot that I could have been in Italy myself. 

Left me with a smile and great desire to discover what stunning location Kate Frost will write about next.

Reunite with your favourite characters from The Holiday Romance series as they gather together for love, laughter and a party they’ll never forget

‘A truly wonderful sunshine infused book’ Reader Review


The Parsons sisters are all loved up.

Sarah has everything she ever wished for; she lives with her gorgeous boyfriend and their cat in Sydney and life couldn’t be better. If only she wasn’t so anxious about turning the big 4 0.

Meanwhile Cat is happily loved-up with Jean-Luc, except she lives in London, and he lives in Paris. She loves their long-distance relationship so why is she worrying about their future.

But a surprise wedding proposal is about to change everything for these sisters. And with all their family and friends gathering at a vineyard in Tuscany to celebrate, love, laughter and mayhem are about to ensue.

I'm absolutely gutted to discover that this fantastic book is the last in what has been a truly wonderful series.

But what a way to go out.  I'm not willing to comment how it may work as a standalone, but if you have been reading all the other books in the series, this is 100%  a must read. 

All our favourite characters are back, it's told between Cat and Sarah's view points, culminating with a memorable week in Tuscany to celebrate Sarah's 40th, and given it's in the title, fairly sure saying that Cat will be getting married isn't a spoiler. 

How good it is to see everyone for a fabulous week in Tuscany that isn't without it's drama (even the prologue is dramatic),, funny, but also at times quite touching too. 

Both sisters have big things looming and both aren't being entirely true about their feelings, but they are also having trouble being honest with themselves. so when the realisations come, you are completely invested in them. 

This is such an enjoyable book, with it's stunning location, and it's overall themes of love in all of its guises, I just loved it so so much. 

And the ending its even better than I could have hoped for, other than the fact that I want more, I don't want it ending there,  but regardless, what I do know is no matter what Sandy Barker releases next I will definitely be reading it.  She is between this series and her standalones, a complete and utter must read author for me now. 

Just wonderful!

It was meant to be a gloriously romantic getaway for Ruby and Hudson. That was the plan, anyway. But then friends start inviting themselves along, lured by the idea of unwinding in a chocolate-box pretty cottage, enjoying the promenade and the gorgeous beaches, and soaking up the sun. With Ellie, Jaz, Katja and Madison popping up around every corner, a work emergency for Hudson plus another sinister mystery to solve, will the lovebirds ever find time to indulge their desire for sun, sea and . . . strawberry shortcake?

It's official Rosie Green is a genius writer! There honestly aren't that many authors out there that can for 22 books of a series so far, keep each one of them feeling completely fresh, while continually increasing the cast of characters, and allowing us to keep up with all of our favourites too. 

It take a real skill, and thankfully looks like there are no signs of this series slowing down, and this 22nd book is another wonderful addition to the series. 

With Ruby and Hudson being the main protaganists this time you know there is going to be a mystery to solve, but Ruby and Hudson seem a bit out of sync with each other.  And we also get four of the other duck pond cafe girls showing up in their holiday location with Jaz being the focus from them. 

But in between all of that we meet Bee and daughter Jodie, who is cleaning Ruby's holiday cottage and a friendship is formed, and I was none the wiser as to who was sending them veiled threats. 

In the lead up to the finale of this mystery my heart was racing, and then it was breaking and there was smiling and shocks and really just gave me all the emotions!  I do love a book that makes you feel something !

It's another wonderful addition to this series, and I'm already looking forward to the next book.

I'm off for an exhausting sounding holiday.... and a look at my current TBR!

As you may or may not know I am an absolutely massive fan of sports, and so when there is a home Commonwealth Games, I just couldn't resist attempting to get some tickets, and then some more tickets and then some more! 

So on Friday, I was at the Velodrome in London, and saw England pick up 2 silvers and 3 bronzes, and even got to see Dame Laura Kenny race. 

Then Sunday evening (yesterday as I am writing this),  well I was at Wembley, and got to witness history with the amazing Lionesses winning against Germany. I am still in disbelief that the ticket I bought over a year ago, turned out to be easily my best ticket buy ever.   What an atmosphere in the stadium, what a result, what a team.  It's finally come home! 

And later today my holiday starts properly, given I regard a holiday as when I get to leave the house and stay left for a while! So I'm off up to Birmingham for a week, and I have tickets for Basketball, Athletics, Hockey x 2, Netball, Rhythmic Gymnastics, Badminton, Diving, Beach Volleyball and the Closing Ceremony. 

And as I'm typing this have discovered that England's men and women are into the final of the Basketball 3 x 3, and my ticket for the basketball tonight is for the all the gold medal matches for the Basketball, so already getting really excited at another chance to cheer on England!

Some days I have 2 sessions so will be running myself ragged crossing Birmingham and hoping to not miss a moment of any action. I can't wait, and I freely admit that this first week of my break, my other priority when not going to sport or watching sport will be finding restaurants to eat ideally at least one decent meal a day if I can!  

I very much doubt I'll read more than a handful of books if that this first week. 

And then on the 9th August I am flying to Sunny Spain, for a week in Salou, for some sun and recovery from the manic week.  Literally all I intend to do is sit, sunbathe (although if the insane heat is still there, it will be shade-bathing instead), swimming, sleeping (yes all the S's) and reading! 

So a two centre holiday of sorts for me that really did kick off on Friday (at least I've been off work since then). My ankles protested on the way back from the cycling, and my legs ache a bit from Wembley, so who knows if I will still be standing by the end of Birmingham, but hoping excitement at seeing so much stuff live will keep me going! 

And as is now customary on my "I'm disappearing" posts, here is what is currently on my review TBR, and thus what I will be picking from while I'm away.   

As always if you have any suggestions on what I should read from these books then I am all ears, I'd love to hear from you.   

So what do you think of this selection? What do you fancy reading? Which ones are you sick of me still having not read from the past few holiday looks at my TBRs (I promise I do try to read some of the older books from time to time),

I love hearing your thoughts, and given I can be indecisive, have been known to base next book decisions on holiday, from what is suggested. 

And does anyone else think I have far too many books with blue covers?!
