The Final Curtain

I'm sure you've all noticed the lack of posts on the blog lately. Last year started off pretty rubbish and stressful with leaving my job of 11 years and going to a new one completely...which was stressful, made be hate work and felt sick at the thought of going in.

Thankfully I found another new job where I'm still at and loving every moment, the downside is longer working hours and further to travel which leaves me with little time to spend with the bf, so books took a step back.

I got the chance of a lifetime and I'm running for the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation Charity in the Great North Run, so my training for the half marathon has increased, and books took another step back. It's taking me longer to read a book (I'm barely reading a book a week) and even longer to get the review up.

I've thought this over very hard and for a few months now, and I've made the decision to shut down the blog, whether it's forever or just temporarily I don't know, but at the moment my heart isn't into reading as much as I did. I know I owe reviews out to publishers and authors and I'll get them out as soon as possible.

To keep up to date with what I'm reading you can find me on goodreads, and for general life and training updates my instagram.

Thank you everyone who has stuck with me over the years and to all the publishers who have sent me some pretty amazing books, and invited me to some awesome bookish events, and all the friends I've made through blogging.

Tell Me About It
Ivy's new boss is sexy, Scottish…and comes with an expiration date.

When Ivy reluctantly takes a new part-time job, it’s a means to an end. Doing this favor for her pain-in-the-neck roommate means Ivy can have her apartment to herself again much sooner. The last thing she expects is Hugh—the hot Scot who just happens to be her new boss—asking her out on a date. And then another. And another.

Something about Hugh makes Ivy want to let her guard down and open up, which would be perfect if he wasn't possibly returning to Scotland in a matter of weeks. But maybe that doesn’t matter. Maybe Ivy can learn to live in the moment and have a little fun, even if it means setting herself up for heartache later.

ONLY YOU is a standalone contemporary romance about taking chances, unexpected friendships, and holding on to the things—and people—that matter most

Tell Me About It
Just outside the small but colorful mountain resort town of Foxboro, Tennessee lies Dr. Weirdman's Mountain Museum of Monsters, Curiosities, and Ancient Mysteries. Once a major tourist attraction, it offers travelers the amusement of touring unusual underground caves and pseudo-scientific exhibits ranging from strange creatures to the supposed artifacts of lost civilizations.

Now the museum is a crumbling relic of an older age, fallen into disrepair. Its longtime owner has died, leaving it in the hands of a younger distant relative who knows nothing of how to run a failing tourist trap of a museum, but who is desperate to make a living and provide for his own children.

The museum has a serious ghost problem, though, and Ellie Jordan is called in from Savannah to help. An unexpected old friend joins Ellie at the last moment so that they can spend a snow-filled Christmas together in the mountains...if the ghosts of the restless dead don't turn the holidays into a horrific tragedy.
