*BLOG TOUR* Love, Lies and Wedding Cake – Sue Watson ★★★★★

Blurb; Will Faye get her happy-ever-after or will bittersweet secrets ruin the recipe for love?

Since Faye met her gorgeous Aussie boyfriend Dan, they’ve travelled all over the world to meet in amazing, crazy and romantic locations. They’ve eaten gateaux in a chateau, chocolate torte in a moonlit port, and even had stöllen kisses in a sparkling Christmas market. Neither of them wanted to settle down… until now.

When Dan asks Faye to marry him and to move to Australia it throws a real spanner in the works. Faye’s daughter Emma needs her here, so moving to the other side of the world – even for a hunk like Dan – simply isn’t an option. Is it?

Faye’s been down the marriage road before and it ended up with her having Ryan Gosling fantasies while her ex-husband obsessed about the plumbing. Is that what she has to look forward to? Is she ready to end her adventure? And even if she is, how can she be sure Dan is the right man for her?

My Review; Wow… Sue has done it again! Outstanding. Read within two sittings. I adored Love, Lies and Lemon Cake (book one in the series) so this was a must read for me and boy was I impressed and hooked. Bloody brilliant! I would recommend this series be read in order so you get a feel for the characters first before reading this one.

What a perfect follow up to book one, back with the familiar, funny and charming characters. Parts had my chuckling away to myself and falling in love with Dan all over again. I loved cheeky Rosie’s character too, reminded me of my own little girl! Made me smile. I loved the setting, the ending, ALL OF IT! A perfect chick-lit, romance and comedy story. A well deserved five stars. A brilliant author!! Highly recommend.

A powerful story highlighting the wonder thay is life and the decisions we face along the way, go for it! Don’t say no. I wonder what lies ahead for Dan and Faye? Will there be a book three? I hope so…. Fingers crossed!

*BLOG BLITZ* Game Players – Anita Waller ★★★★★

Blurb; When a gang of six children playing in their den in the woods spot a man burying drugs nearby, it marks the beginning of the end of their childhoods.

Unsure what to do, the children dig up the drugs and take them away. But when the dealer, who they watched bury the stash, shows up dead, the youngsters are thrown into turmoil.

Scared of what might happen, the children tell the police about the body they have discovered.

Meanwhile, a group of gangsters start searching for their missing drugs.

Soon the children and their families become the target of the vicious criminals who will stop at nothing to retrieve their narcotics…

My Review; WOW! ANITA HAS DONE IT AGAIN. What a bloody brilliant, outstanding, captivating story. This has to be a new favourite author for me, she just knows how to hook me left, right and centre! Loved Game Players. Anita comes up with the best stories I promise you. After Captor I had high hopes but this tops it!

A well deserved five stars from me and highly recommend. Game Players will be going into my top 20 of 2018! Brilliantly written, a fast paced read which is easy to devour. Brilliant. Would love to see this story turned into a film.

Six innocent children in the wrong place at the wrong time… I felt sorry for each child and what they went through, but I loved the relationship between the group and how they all stuck together. Children taking on grown up decisions should not happen, I reckon they handled the situation as best they could.

*BLOG BLITZ* The Journey – Conrad Jones ★★★★

Blurb; The gripping story of a young boy and his family, driven from their home by war and indiscriminate violence. Like millions of others, they attempt the treacherous journey across their war-torn continent, trying to reach the safety of Europe.

The truth is, Europe doesn’t want them and thousands die every month at the hands of thieves and profiteering men to whom life is cheap. Kalu believes that he can lead his family to safety, he has planned for this. They have money, a plan and Kalu is, after all, the smartest man in Monguno.

My Review; The Journey follows Kalu and his family trying to escape Boko Harmon extremists by trying to get to Europe to survive! Boko Harmon want to take over and will kill easily without a thought or a second. It can be a very dark read in places throughout this story.

However, the sad truth is this is still happening in this day and age so it will make the reader open their eyes and appreciate their life a little more, god knows what I woulf do if I was Kalu and other civilians. Once I got into this story I could not put it down, different from those everyday thrillers. Unique.

I previously enjoyed Brick by Conrad Jones so had expectations for this story, I loved them both but enjoyed this one more. Very impressed. I awarded four stars and would highly recommend to you all. It had me captivated until the end. An easy, fast paced read!
