Review: The Book of Second Chances by Katherine Slee


The Book of Second ChancesThe Book of Second Chances by Katherine Slee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Honestly, I'm not even sure where, to begin with, this book.

After the death of her Grandmother, famous author Catriona Robinson, Emily is sent on a scavenger hunt, to find an unpublished manuscript. Otherwise, she risks losing the home she lives in and the rights to her famous book series. Each stop holds clues for the next stop and letters from her Grandmother.
But she's not travelling alone. Her Grandmother has tasked a childhood friend to accompany her. Forcing her to exam parts of her past, relive painful parts and learn how to grow from it all.

I definitely had to take me time reading this book because there was so much to observe. Ultimately, I was happy that it forced me to slow down and enjoy this book.

Thank you to Forever for the physical copy of this book.

Review: The Highlander's English Bride by Vanessa Kelly



The Highlander's English Bride (Clan Kendrick, #3)The Highlander's English Bride by Vanessa Kelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved, loved, loved this book. This is the third book in the Clan Kendrick Series and can be read as a stand-alone.

Graeme Kendrick works for the King's Spymaster while watching a thief skulk through Hyde Park, he comes to Lady Sabrina Bell's rescue when the thief pushes her into the Serpentine. When a close friend finds out what Lady Sabrina was doing out at such a late hour, she is warned about her would-be suitor being a fortune hunter. And again he finds himself rescuing her as thieves ransack the ball they are attending.
Now Graeme must travel to Scotland ahead of the King's visit to make sure things are secure upon his arrival and little does he know that the beautiful and exasperating Lady Sabrina is also joining the King. Because she has plans to get under Mr Kendrick's skin.

There's action from beginning to end, which makes this a pretty great read. So it never felt boring.
I loved all the Kendricks featured in this book. Their voices brought a lot of funny moments and had me giggling out loud. So all the banter was great.
Okay, now I'm off the add the first two books to my TBR.

Review: Always a Bridesmaid by Cindi Madsen



Always a BridesmaidAlways a Bridesmaid by Cindi Madsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Violet has been a bridesmaid seven times. She was sure her wedding day was near until she found her fiance with another woman in his arms. She heads to Uncertainty to help her sister redesign her bakery, spend time with her niece and to try to find her muse again. Upon arriving she almost starts a fire.

Ford Macguire does search and rescue, trains puppies and fights fires, so he doesn't have time for distractions. But she's a really cute distraction. And he gets her to help him with the puppy training and his "man of honor" duties just to spend more time with her. As they begin to fall in love he lets his insecurities push her away.

Loved their banter and how he just accepted who she was, unlike her ex. The scenes with the puppies are of course adorable. Especially Trouble.

This is the second book in the Getting Hitched in Dixie series and can be read as a standalone.
I'm looking forward to the next book and now I'm going to go back and read Addie and Tucker's book.

Review: Accidentally Family by Sasha Summers



Accidentally FamilyAccidentally Family by Sasha Summers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my, this book came out of nowhere and hit me in the feels. I couldn't put it down.
From the first page all the way till the end I was invested in this accidental family.

Felicity is the one who holds her family together ever since her ex-husband walked out on their family.
Graham was her husband former business partner and her best friends husband, while her marriage was falling apart his wife was dying.
Now their back in each other life after another loss. They find themselves slowly leaning on one another. and realizing they might just want to be more than friends. Of course, there are a lot of complications they have to navigate. But it is a start to a new beginning.

I hope the author has plans for more books in this series. I want more from all of these characters. Braden and Charity. Owen and Honor. Nick. Diana.

Now I need to go pre-order a copy of this book! Read it, I think you'll like it!
