Starting Over at Sunset Cottage by Lisa Hobman #bookreview @rararesources @LisaJHobmanAuth @BoldwoodBooks #BoldwoodBloggers

Near the beginning of this year, I read Dreaming Under an Island Skye by Lisa Hobman and absolutely loved it.

Ollie & Ada by Joseph Burch #bookreview @JosephBurch1000 @BookGuild

Jk Rowling famously wrote much of Harry Potter in various cafes around Edinburgh while her baby slept in her pram. Joanna Cannon wrote in her car in the hospital car park where she worked as a psychiatrist. I’m sure many writers have similar tales of just writing where and when they can. Joseph Burch wrote … More Ollie & Ada by Joseph Burch #bookreview @JosephBurch1000 @BookGuild

The Whistling by Rebecca Netley #bookreview @Rebecca_Netley @MichaelJBooks

It’s getting to that time of year when the nights are getting darker earlier, there’s a chill in the air and Hallowe’en is coming up. It’s also the time when I get brave and add a ghostly story or two to my reading list. How ominous does that front cover of The Whistling look?

A Kingswater Summer by Jo Lambert #bookreview – @Jolambertwriter #Cornwall #RomanticSuspense

A Kingswater Summer is the second of Jo Lambert’s Cornish Coastal Romance trilogy but is easily read as a standalone novel. I read the first book, Shadows on the Water, last year so did recognise some of the characters and it was good to see how life had moved on for them. However, this book … More A Kingswater Summer by Jo Lambert #bookreview – @Jolambertwriter #Cornwall #RomanticSuspense
