Stand by Me by S. D. Robertson

My review I like books which have friendship, love, family, children. Then throw in a little magic, a little miracle, and it should make the book complete. Stand by me started well, with childhood best friend, Elliot, making his appearance in Lisa's life after 20 years when she is struggling with marriage and children. He … Continue reading Stand by Me by S. D. Robertson

Lucy’s Little Village Book Club by Emma Davies

My review If you're really lucky, love grows out of a friendship, that you never want to lose, it brings colour and meaning to everything you do. Far from changing you, love takes the person that you already were and makes it into a better version of you... A direct quote from the book.  Oh, … Continue reading Lucy’s Little Village Book Club by Emma Davies

Curves, Kisses and Chocolate Ice Cream by Sue Watson

My review We eat either to escape some emotional trauma or to fill an emotional need, and that's why it is known as comfort food. And this comfort food is almost always something delicious, something ridiculously fattening, and something which fills the mouth with bursts of flavor and hips with a bigger arse. That is … Continue reading Curves, Kisses and Chocolate Ice Cream by Sue Watson

Where the Sweet Bird Sings by Ella Joy Olsen

My review This story had such a great plot that I was excited enough to leave all work to read this. But alas and very woefully, I have to admit that this book did not hold my attention. It took me 4 days to finish reading.  I tried to like the main character, Emma, I … Continue reading Where the Sweet Bird Sings by Ella Joy Olsen

Everything the Heart Wants by Savannah Page

My review The story goes...  Halley was always sure, from the very beginning, that she never wanted to be a mother. In fact, she made this clear on the first date with Adam itself. But when her husband after 11 years of bliss, suddenly asks her to reconsider about having a baby, they are at … Continue reading Everything the Heart Wants by Savannah Page

The Woman who Knew Everything by Debbie Viggiano 

My review The universal question that any woman who is in a relationship has in mind - will he or won't he? And when will he?  These three best friends/workmates Amber, Dee, and Chrissie have the same question in mind. When Christmas and New Year does not present them with a proposal or a ring, … Continue reading The Woman who Knew Everything by Debbie Viggiano 

Since You’ve Been Gone by Christa Allan

My review I picked up this book reading the blurb, thinking this is about a strong woman, Olivia who, after being jilted at the alter when her fiancé dies in an accident on a road 50 miles away from the church with a baby gift in the back seat, and going through various hardships, discovers … Continue reading Since You’ve Been Gone by Christa Allan
