Synopsis of Bells and Bows on Mistletoe Row

It’ll take a miracle to make Juliet’s Christmas merry, but Mistletoe Row is the place to be when you need some Christmas magic. 

The last person Juliet Bell expects to see when she returns home for Christmas is Harrison Bow. Especially with the most beautiful woman in the world by his side. Twenty years ago, Juliet and Harrison had the shortest romance in history, consisting of one date – and one blazing row. But Juliet will never admit when she’s wrong, and Harrison doesn’t forgive easily, so they haven’t seen, or spoken to one another since.

Harrison Bow vowed he’d never visit his grandfather at The Grange, again, or drive along Mistletoe Row, the scene of one of the unhappiest times of his life. He hasn’t been back for twenty years and he’s only here now because his brother pleaded with him to come. At least with his executive assistant joining him, he’ll be able to do some work. 

But Juliet’s sister, Zoe and Harrison’s brother, Luke have some surprises in store for their elder siblings, and so it seems does Fate. After Harrison risks his life to save Juliet, the least she can do is be nice. The problem is, Harrison is hotter than the log fire in The Mistletoe pub, and when she’s surrounded by twinkling lights and softly falling snow, it doesn’t take long for her to realise she’s in love with the man she thought she hated. Even if he doesn’t appear to be in love with her.

My review

 This is a witty and sparkling Christmas romcom with intriguing yet frustratingly stubborn characters and a ‘willthey won’t they’ plot that keeps you on tenterhooks! It has all the ingredients you want in a fun and festive novel

The setting is quintessentially festive and you get into a Christmassy mood from the very start of the book. There’s a family reunion, in fact two, and we get to see all the tensions you expect from these encounters, however much they’re looked forward to and however much everyone vows to be on their best behaviour and lot allow anyone to wind them up!

 The interactions between our various characters are fascinating, and very convincing.

 This story is an easy and delightful read that will brighten up anyone’s Christmas.

Synopsis

Christmas is coming, but not everyone is looking forward to it.

Rebecca has just been dumped and the prospect of spending the holiday period with her parents is less than appealing.

Eighty- two year old Stanley lost his beloved wife, Edie, to cancer. How will he cope with his first Christmas without her?

Jacob’s university degree hasn’t helped him get a job, and it looks like he’llstill be signing on come New Year.

Workaholic Meredith would rather spend December 25th at home alone with a readymeal and a DVD box set. Can anything make her embrace the spirit of the season?

The enigmatic Natalie Hope takes over the reins at the Sugar and Spice bakery and café in an attempt to spread some festive cheer and restore Christmas spirit, but will she succeed?

My review

What a sweet and magical Christmas tale! And very clever.

The mysterious Natalie breezes into town to take over at the bakery and café temporarily. However, it soon becomes clear that she has an ulterior motive.She’s looking out for some people in particular in the town. Natalie is a warm and charming person, and we can’t help suspecting there’s more to her than meets the eye.

The four other main characters, Meredith, Stanley, Rebecca and Jacob,are as different as it’s possible to be, yet each is fascinating and memorable.I think hard-nosed Meredith is probably my favourite although she’s truly ghastly! She leaps off the page.

Events work to bring our characters together so that Natalie can try to work her unique magic in making their Christmas, and beyond, somewhat more jolly and rewarding. But she’s got a tough job on her hands. Helped by Jacob,she gets busy at the café, which is the centre of operations.

This is a joyous, optimistic, uplifting book, like just Christmas itself. The touch of magic is the icing on the cake. Wonderful.

Synopsis

Do you believe in Christmas Miracles?

Holly is looking for a change and even though not everyone agrees with her career choices, she’s determined there’s more to this life than the long hours she works as an editor in New York City. What she doesn’t expect is to meet Mitch, a recluse who’s hiding more than she realises.

Mitch does all he can to avoid human contact, spending his days in the little log cabin out in the woods behind Inglenook Falls where he owns a Christmas tree farm, so when Holly falls into his life, he’s not sure how to react. All he knows is that something needs to change if he ever wants to get his life back on track.

Along with friends Cleo and Darcy, Holly is determined to bring joy back to Mitch’s life, but will he appreciate their interference? And when a business proposition throws everything up in the air, will it do more harm than good and ruin lives forever?

Both Holly and Mitch must learn that on the surface people aren’t always what they seem…but if you dig a little deeper, they can take you by surprise.

Curl up this Christmas for plenty of snowflakes, roaring log fires, a marriage proposal, unlikely friendships and second chances as we return to the much-loved characters in the New York Ever After series.

 

My review

This makes for perfect Christmas reading with its festive backdrop of mountains, snow and log cabins.

The story revolves around Holly who has decided to turn her back on the rat race and go freelance. Despite having plenty of resources and contacts under her belt, it’s still a nerve-wracking and difficult decision to make. She heads to Inglenook Falls for her first assignment, and to have some to think and unwind from the stressful life she’s lived until now. A slip and a blow to the head have her waking up in the little log cabin she was trying to photograph, and in reclusive Mitch’s company.

This is a book about first hiding from the world, but then finding the courage to face at least certain aspects of it again. We always like to think that Christmas is a magical, healing time that can mend rifts and make things better. A time for second chances. But sometimes there can be a bit of a fight first!

This is a beautiful read, totally engrossing with some very interesting characters. The reader too has to learn not to judge the book just by its cover (although this book has a super one that entirely matches up to the book’s contents) but to look a little deeper. It’s tempting to dismiss a few of the cast members out of hand as self-centred or anti-social, but when we give them time we soon learn there’s a lot more to them than at first meets the eye.

Very enjoyable and one to squeeze into your Christmas reading list. That said, it makes for lovely reading any time of the year.

Synopsis

An astonishing tale, spanning continents, where truth is stranger than fiction. This historical saga of an extraordinary Australian pioneer family continues into a new generation.

Sadie is brought-up amongst the vineyards of the Yarra Valley while her work-obsessed father reaps riches from the boom years before the Great War.

With post-war depression looming, Sadie’s only option is to flee from her disastrous marriage, seeking refuge in Cleethorpes, a small seaside town in northern England.

Years later, when her sons are in RAF Bomber Command, she receives a letter from her long-lost brother which forces her to confront the past and her part in her family’s downfall.

Can old wounds be healed?
Will she find new love?
Will this second war destroy everyone she saved?

 

My review

This is a truly bittersweet novel. Sadie, our heroine, is the mother of three sons, all of whom are fighting in the Second World War. With her heart in tatters with worry about them, she still finds the strength to make her own contribution to the war effort, and to find some love for herself.

The author created the tense atmosphere beautifully. I can only imagine how truly dreadful it must have been for the women of that generation to be constantly wondering if their children were still alive as the war dragged on and on. Grabbing every precious second with them when they’re on leave becomes Sadie’s prime concern.

We travel in time here and there back to relevant moments of Sadie’s childhood and early adulthood. This is nicely done and isn’t intrusive. Instead, we have two beautifully told storylines to enjoy.

We don’t want to see Sadie suffer, but given the war setting it’s inevitable she will. Yet she finds new strength to deal with the aftermath of the war, and even has the chance to try and rebuild her life and enjoy some happiness.

This is very touching wartime novel that recounts, without sensationalism or detraction, the turbid, tragic nature of this period. By sharing the experiences of just one mother we actually get an incredibly broad insight into the true impact of human conflict.

I hadn’t realised this was the last book in a trilogy when I read Sadie’s War, which shows that it stands alone perfectly. I shall now be reading the first two novels in the series to find out more about the fascinating family on whom the books are based.

Synopsis

Amelia O’Sullivan is a photographer who has always viewed herself through the wrong lens. When her marriage publicly crashes around her, she flees to the safety of her aunt’s country property to pick up the pieces. Can she adjust her focus to what she really wants from her life?

Born into a wealthy and powerful family, Frederick Doyle may seem like a man who has it all, but behind the scenes, a bitter business feud threatens an irrevocable family split. As he fights for control of the winery he’d built from the ground up, he finds a supportive ally in Amelia and becomes increasingly beguiled by her creative spirit.

Jill McMahon is a successful novelist suffering from writer’s block over her latest manuscript. Finding her niece, Amelia, at her door, reminds her of the bonds of family, but in seeing Amelia and Frederick’s relationship grow, a long-forgotten and painful secret threatens to re-surface.

Can Amelia, Frederick and Jill untangle themselves from their pasts or will history simply repeat itself?

 

My review

We have three very interesting main characters in this story. All are undervalued to an extent, and have demons to face. Amelia and Frederick in particular are getting grief from some of their loved ones too. However, all three strive to be positive and strong, and all of them are likeable, sympathetic people. Their interactions make for a fascinating story.

Family life is shown in two very different lights in the novel: we see its difficult, dismissive side but also the ever-loyal and supportive side to it too.

The setting is rural Australia, and the author’s writing takes us there. We get especially interesting insights into running a vineyard, and the business side of a bottle of wine, but learn about the other character’s professions too.

The romance that blooms slowly between Amelia and Frederick is beautifully portrayed, but it’s not without its frustrations and misunderstandings. And is Amelia too disillusioned to trust someone enough to truly love again?

This is a gentle and touching romance with splashes of intrigue and skulduggery and lovely, wry humour here and there to keep the reader fascinated until the very end.

This festive romcom is a total joy from start to finish. It’s funny, lively, touching and ever so clever.

We first meet our heroine Daisy Jones getting ready to go out to a special dinner with her boyfriend Freddie. She’s convinced he’s going to ask her to marry him. As it is, the big announcement is that he thinks they should move in together. Not quite what Daisy hoped for, but she comes from a line of formidable women who have never been ones to feel sorry for themselves. She takes it on the chin and proceeds to be happy enough with Freddie.

The main action takes place three years later. In quick succession Daisy finds Freddie in bed with another man, and then is first threatened with redundancy by Caring Cards, the greetings card company she works for, and then later the same day sacked for allegedly breaking the conduct rules. She has no choice but to go and live with mum Sandra and gran Elsie, and great-gran Gwenda, usually called Gee-Gee, who visits a lot. Their interactions are just brilliant! There’s also brother David and his wife Zoe, whom Daisy has always considered a dumb blonde.

To bring good luck Gee-Gee asks for an old silver sixpence to go into the Christmas pud. Daisy swallows this, which ends her up in hospital to be checked out but a rather terse and heartless Dr Hart. Three more of Daisy’s nearest and dearest end up needing medical car in the following period. Some luck that sixpence brought. However, it does bring Daisy into contact with Dr Hart again. But this is a book bulging with cross-purposes and misunderstandings and we get most of these between these two characters.

I won’t say more, but this is a romcom so it’s not too much to hope for a happy ending! And at least the sixpence doesn’t make a reappearance in a pudding, although something else just might…

The book is truly unputdownable. Daisy is such a great character. She’s loyal, kind and steady, but has her foibles like the rest of us. She’s regularly driven up the wall by her family but always does the right thing. She’s a sweetie. So is Zoe, who in many ways is the strongest character in this book. She develops wonderfully, whilst quietly teaching Daisy a lesson about learning not to make snap judgements about people.

The book is packed with imagination and humour and makes for a fabulously entertaining read.

‘In Peppermint Peril’ is an ingeniously crafted mystery that’s a real treat to read. 

Our heroine, Callie Aspen, has returned to her home town of Heart’s Harbor, to help out Aunt Iphy. Callie is a historical tour guide by profession, but she’s hit a quiet time so she’s happy to help her aunt organise a mystery party at which there will be a puzzle cake based on a Brother Cadfael mystery. There’s to be a big event at the party, with overtones of Agatha Christie, but it’s overshadowed by first an apparent theft and then a real murder.

Callie immediately gets involved in trying to solve the murder. She’s shocked by what’s happened, especially as it means some of her family might end up in gaol. It also helps her stop thinking too much about what might have been if she’d taken different decisions in the past. There’s a definite hint of bittersweet about this novel.

There’s a hint of romance too. Police Office Falk and Callie get off on the wrong foot to start with, but as they get to know each other, an attraction develops. Will it come to anything? We’ll have to wait and see…

There’s some insightful portrayals of relationships, both family and marital, and of the hierarchy in a small town. There’s a lot going in in this cosy mystery, which is quite a bit deeper than most.

There’s more to come in the series, and that’s really good news.

Synopsis

What happens when tunnel vision clouds a police investigation? Is it true that once you are labelled a person of interest you really are the prime suspect? Can you trust the legal system?  Probably not.

After a bitterly contested legal battle over inherited property, the hard-won art collection and its owner Samantha Bennington disappear. Both have vanished without a trace.

When blood spatter is discovered under the freshly painted wall of the room in which two of the paintings were hung, the theft becomes the opening act in a twisted tale of jealousy, revenge, and murder leading to a final judgment for all involved.

As the list of suspects narrows, the focus lands squarely on the husband. Some labeled Samantha’s husband a corrupt attorney, others an opportunist. Either way, he’s in the crosshairs of law enforcement and they are calling him a murderer. But is he the only viable suspect? What about the missing woman’s drug-addicted sister and her convicted felon brother? Both were furious over their loss at court and have more than enough reason to hate Samantha.

Guilty until proven innocent leaves Alexander Clarke facing a twisted judgment.

 

My review

This is a really cunning and clever mystery with a cast of some truly ghastly but fascinating characters! There are, of course, the good guys too and these are equally as interesting, particularly Dalia, the insurance investigator, and Tyler, the cop.

The story begins and ends from the point of view of Alex, our main suspect, but  most of it is narrated by Dalia. She gives us an insight into the complicated business of insurance for highly valuable items, and with her sharp, incisive mind she contributes greatly to the police investigation too. She’s very likeable, down-to-earth and engaging as our main protagonist.

It’s enlightening to see the world through Alex’s eyes too. He’s not trying to impress anyone, just be brutally self-serving. He and Marley and Ashton Bennington are the main suspects, but how to determine which one of them perpetrated the crime, or was it all of them? Or was it someone else altogether?

There’s a great sense of place in the novel. The settings range from the courtroom, to the sumptuous residence of the Benningtons, to prison interview rooms, to various atmospheric sites were the team conduct their investigations. Each has loads of atmosphere and detail.

There’s co-operation and confrontation in the novel, loyalty and betrayal, cruelty and kindness and hatred and love. There are plenty of shocks in store for the reader but not enough to destroy your faith in humanity. Even though it seems unlikely at times that justice will fully out in this complicated case, you’re aware that there’s a strong force for good at work.

The plot keeps you guessing all the way through this gripping and highly enjoyable novel.

Absolutely to be recommended.

Some fun today! I’m taking part in a sort of mini advent calendar-cum-twelve days of Christmas party for this wonderful little book, The Magical Christmas Do-Over, so I have a short piece from the author about baking, which is something she loves to do at Christmas time – and every day of the year!

But first the official poster:

And then a quick review. I absolutely adored this book. It’s funny, moving, magical and uplifting. Three women get a chance to relive a Christmas from the past and that makes all the difference to the dead-end lives they’ve found themselves in. Macy, Samantha and Naomi have good hearts but have all allowed themselves to be backed into corners they don’t wish to be in. But thanks to a blue moon and some extra-special cookies it’s time for a new beginning. A beautiful, sweet story but with grittiness here and there. It’ll make your Christmas.

So, now lets open that third window on our ‘advent calendar’ and hear from Linda:

 

Baking.

Food, baking and family feature heavily in all my books. I was born to it I’m sure! I opened up my own restaurant out of my basement in Buffalo with my easy bake oven and my Barbie burger grill. I actually had customers, daily.

Who would come to eat in a blizzard to a seven year olds’ basement, I ‘ll never know. But after that, I made all the Christmas dinners, and finally opened up my own restaurant when I was full-grown. Around 50 lol.  In Malibu California where I had movie stars like Anthony Hopkins and Tom Hanks in everyday.

Synopsis

Is there life after the circus has left town?

Circus performer Justine Belmont works with big cats, but when the circus is disbanded and the old lion is sold to a private menagerie at a stately home in Norfolk, she is asked to spend a few weeks settling him into his new environment. When she arrives at the estate, however, she receives a mixed welcome.

The groundsman Tom Yates resents her presence as he doesn’t feel he needs her help with the lion. He revises his opinion when he sees the bond between her and the big cat, and she and Tom grow closer, although Justine remains torn about her feelings for him. The lady of the house, Priscilla – who is married to the reclusive owner, Lord Brooks’s, grandson – is not so easily convinced. She perceives Justine as a threat for the male attention and her plans for the manor. And her two young daughters are a little too curious about the lion for their own good.

When unsettling events occur, Justine begins to wonder if there is more to Priscilla’s animosity than meets the eye. Can Justine keep herself and everyone else safe until it’s time for her to leave again and start a new life elsewhere?

 

My review

What a fabulously original story! I was hooked by this story from its first word. It provided an interesting insight into circus life and the very real threats its face, from legislation as well as dwindling audiences lured away by ever more online entertainment. A way of life faces extinction, and it’s a way of life that is too often vilified as cruel to animals. In our story we see well-cared for animals to whom performing is simply what they do in order to get nice rewards.

Elijah, Justine’s father, recognises that he’s fighting a losing battle trying to keep his big cat show going. It’s time to retire both himself and his animals. Rexus, the lion, goes off to Stoneybrook – which Justine soon discovers is nicknamed stoney-broke (an English expression meaning really short of money) – and Justine goes with him.

There are plenty of exciting events and interesting twists in the plot after Justine’s arrival in Norfolk. The hints are there, but I don’t think anyone can predict the fascinating denouement. I know I couldn’t, and Ioved I how was kept on tenterhooks!

We meet many fascinating characters, from Justine, who seems stubborn and rather set in her ways to begin with, to the austere Priscilla, the eccentric Lord Brook and the kind and dashing Tom, whose heart has been maltreated in the past so he’s rather wary around women now, especially ones like Justine that he can’t quite fathom out…

Animals, ways of life under threat, Christmas and romance – what a wonderful combination for an entertaining and thought-provoking festive read.
