It's really no wonder that Carole Matthews has such a loyal following, her books are like warm, comforting hugs! They're so easy to escape into, and her characters can be related to by her readers. 'Calling Mrs Christmas' is definitely one of my favourites of Matthews' novels, and is just perfect for this time of year.
Stafford's characters are simply charming - with each new Mystery in the series I feel like I'm revisiting some very dear, old friends. Barnabus is my personal favourite, with his usual accomplice, Priscilla (who only plays a very small role in this story) coming a close second.
Reena has loved cool and unpredictable Sawyer for years, but has never had the guts to do anything about it. When Sawyer begins dating Reena's best friend, Allie, Reena does all she can to hide how hurt she is. However, when Allie is tragically killed, Reena and Sawyer discover their true feelings for one another. But will the memory of Allie always be between them, and can Sawyer sort himself out enough for him to be worthy of Allie in the end?
The book was very funny and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The illustrations made me laught and I liked the way I didn't find out what the creature was, or who had put it in the shed until the very end of the story. I'm already looking forward to the next installment.
This is the sixth book in the Tom Gates series. They are all super funny! They follow the adventures of a boy called Tom Gates who likes eating caramel waffles and drawing lots of doodles. These doodles are drawn all over the books, which make them look really mad and interesting!
The standalone sequel to Colgan's acclaimed 'Welcome to Rosie Hopkins' Sweetshop of Dreams' was a much appreciated addition to my to-be-read pile, and swiftly found itself pushed to the top and on my bedside table.
'Playing Grace' is Osmond's third novel. Having enjoyed her previous books, I was looking forward to this, especially once I saw how gorgeous the cover is and read the blurb! I love how Osmond's heroines are always gorgeously complex, and her heroes Mr-Darcy-esque and misunderstood, usually by both the reader and their love interest!
Learning to Love is my fifth book published through wonderfully supportive Safkhet Publishing, all of them romantic comedies, though this book is perhaps a little more poignant. I do feel drawn to write about real people dealing with some of the traumas life tends to throw at us, people who, hopefully, the reader identifies with and wants to get to know.
