Daughter of the Sea by Elisabeth Hobbes

Immagine
  Synopsis: On a windswept British coastline, the tide deposits an unexpected gift... It was the cry that she first noticed, the plaintive wail that called to her over the crash of winter waves. Wrapped only in a sealskin, the baby girl looks up at Effie and instantly captures her heart. She meant only to temporarily foster the young orphan, but when news reaches Effie that her husband has been lost at sea, and months pass without anyone claiming the infant, she embraces her new family—her son, Jack, and her adopted daughter, Morna. Effie has always been an outcast in her village, the only granddaughter of a woman people whisper is a witch, so she's used to a solitary existence. But when Midsummer arrives, so, too, does a man claiming to be Morna's father. There's no denying Lachlan is the girl's kin, and so, Effie is surprised when he asks her to continue looking after his daughter, mysteriously refusing to explain why. She agrees, but when he returns six months hence,

Christmas with Hamish by Sophie Penhaligon

  Synopsis: Christmas has never been the most wonderful time of the year for Verity Robinson. When her younger sister sends her an invite to her Christmas wedding on the other side of the country in Vancouver, she decides to kill two birds with one stone and plans a ski trip to Whistler with some old friends. However, her dreams of a snowy Christmas on skis are thwarted by her sister’s dog sitting crisis. Instead of spending Christmas enjoying the après ski alcohol, she is instead stuck minding Hamish McDuff for the next week. They say that every cloud has a silver lining and for Verity, the silver lining comes in the guise of her sexy new neighbour, Nikau Taylor. Nikau seems determined to help Verity eradicate her ghosts of Christmas past, but what will happen when her time is up and it’s time to go home to Toronto? Review: Christmas with Hamish is a roller coaster of emotion I didn't expect. It was funny, sweet and emotional in the span of few pages but really really enjoyable. V

#Rejected Goddesses by Natalie Watson & Nina Holmes

  Synopsis: “Every woman is a rejected goddess at some point in her life … but it’s okay to be rejected as long as you feel like a Goddess.” — Robyn Ryan and Cat Romano. I’m Robyn Ryan . I’m thirtyish and I’m a third-generation caffeinated Irish. I’m a journalist turned baker on the verge of bankruptcy. I'm a mommy to a dog with a huge attitude. My personal life sucks. I’m Catarina Romano , shortly Cat. I’m thirtyish and I’m a third-generation fiery-tempered Italian with a nuclear explosive and overprotective family. I’m a notorious male-basher. No wonder I’m single. I’m also an author of the worstseller “Italian Connections.” We are two best friends in a temporary rut of our lives in Mystic Oak, MA. Can our ginormous dreams come true in the smallest town on earth? Review: #Rejected Goddesses was a nice, entertaining read. I was invested in these characters adventures from start to end. Even if this was a short story everything was egregiously tied up in the end. I've really en

Wildcat by Rebecca Jenshak

  Synopsis: I met my dream girl. That’s right. She’s stunning and the worst bartender I’ve ever seen. I should have gone home and gone to sleep—dream girl or not. I had an early morning and the season was starting soon. But when she threatened me with boy band karaoke I couldn't help myself. I went. The stars aligned. I have never felt more alive or wanted anyone more than I want her. When it’s time for me to head on my annual pre-season boys trip, I barely let her go. It’s been a week and I can’t stop thinking about her. Except there she is. Right here at the Wildcat’s kickoff party. And as luck would have it, my dream girl is the coach’s youngest daughter. But everyone knows the coach’s daughter is off limits. Right? Review: I love Rebecca Jenshak's books and Wildcat wasn't an exception. This story was entertaining and sweet, with some emotional scenes. I've read it in one sitting because I was hooked from the beginning and it was over before I knew it. Scarlett Mille

Tall, Dark, and Bossy by A.M. Hargrove

Immagine
  Synopsis: The first time I met sexy Stanton Baines, I nearly swallowed my tongue. But that was before he opened his mouth and directed his insolent comments at me. Not one to back down from a clash, I fired right back. From then on, Stanton pursued me with a vengeance. The first thing I learned was he discarded women like gum wrappers. Second, the control freak thought he could dominate me. That billionaire might be the boss of everybody else, but he was never going to be my bosshole. Nor was I going to be one of his crumpled-up gum wrappers. My heart had been trampled on enough. Mr. Baines would not be adding his shoeprints to it. Except he didn’t give up. The more I sassed, the more he chased. After he had me wrapped around his pinkie, he left…as in poofed right out of the country without so much as a farewell. I figured we were over. Boy was I ever wrong. I had completely underestimated the man and that alphahole was about to bring me to my knees...unless I did it to him first. Re

Snow Falls Over Sunnybrook by Rosie Green

Synopsis: The chance to spend a night ghost-hunting alone with Hudson Holmes at Brambleberry Manor seems like a dream come true for Ruby Watkiss. Maybe, she thinks, this is their chance to get closer? But when mysterious goings-on start happening which have nothing to do with the spirit world, the pair are catapulted off on another sleuthing adventure.  And as the snow starts to fall and emotions are rising at the Little Duck Pond Cafe, Ruby is faced with a double challenge. Can she be braver than she's ever been, in order to rescue something very close to her heart? And can she convince Hudson that Christmas really can be the most wonderful time of the year? Review: Snow Falls Over Sunnybrook held me captivated throughout the book, I've read it in one sitting. It's an enjoyable story, even if in this installment there is less intrigue and mystery and more "pain of love" for our heroine. Here we are following once again Ruby and Hudson's adventures, they are t
