So, without further ado, I’ve got to say that Summer at the French Café is a peculiar one. It’s well-written, even if a bit slow here and there, and with an interesting pair of MCs. Kat and Noah have good inner voices, and they’re quite fun to follow along; maybe they should be a little more proactive though, less–less ‘life is steamrolling all over me’, but that’s a matter of personal tastes.

#Book Tour #Book Review – A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow; J. Redland
A Wedding at Hedgehog Hollow has been my first dive into the Hedgehog Hollow series—what a journey!

#Book Tour – Brooklyn Monroe Wants It All; K. Booth
There are some topics that are dear to me. Old(ish) ladies still kicking ass, single women dealing with motherhood, fertility and pregnancy issues. Brooklyn Monroe Wants It All broaches each of these themes - some in depth, some in a fleeting way.
#Book Tour – A Winter’s Wish For The Cornish Midwife; Jo Bartlett

The Chrysillium Tree – Laken Honeycutt
I loved this book. I loved almost everything about it. Mæve is an interesting character, and rooting for her is so easy because she’s fierce and courageous, but also kind, intelligent and humble. She’s given a task early in the novel, and no matter how dire things are, she does everything in her power to reach her goals.

#Book Tour – The Spanish House; Cherry Radford
Radford promised me a summer romance and hey, she did deliver. The Spanish House is a quirky yet nostalgic story about an actress on a quest for happiness, a happiness that goes hand in hand with a list of tasks she’s supposed to fulfill.
