This week seems to have a definite festive fiction read as I have suddenly come to that point in the Blog Tours where the review books have a Christmas feel. When I think back to a time before my blog, I wasn’t really a romance reader and now I definitely look forward to them.

First up though is…
Dead Already by Tim Adler, this is the first time I have read anything by this author and I am glad there are a few more of his books to pick up. This is a a book that has a crime thriller element but also an eerie psychological aspect to it. It has the feel of an old time gangster story that flits back and forth in time to fill in all the details. Thoroughly enjoyed this one and keep an eye out for the up coming Blog Tour.
Now for the festive ones…
A Christmas Wedding at the Castle by Eliza J Scott was an adorable read and it was so good to be back in the village of Lytell Stangdale as Livvie and Zander are getting preparations ready for their wedding. I adore this authors Life on the Moors series and this latest one has a lot more to it than first meets the eye. Each of these books focuses on one of the main characters, so while it okay and easy to read as stand alone, they are much better read in order. Old secrets, old animosity and new beginnings are just the tip of the iceberg. Full review will be as part of the Blog Tour.
Another welcome return to a community with Christmas in Cockleberry Bay by Nicola May. This is the 4th book in the series and I have loved each book. As always there are dogs and this time more babies as Rosa starts to work on her charity Ned’s Gift. I really enjoy the humorous comments and antics of the characters as they go about their everyday lives but mixed into this there are some heart-warming moments and some dodgy characters. Another Blog Tour review to keep an eye out for.
Another welcome journey was to Christmas at the Waffle Shack by Helen J Rolfe. I love Helen’s books and this one is just a gorgeous read. I mean Waffles!!! Need I say more? This is the 2nd in the Heritage Cove series and it focuses on, well obviously the Waffle Shack, but also the blacksmith’s run by Lucy. Definitely sparks, but also nerves and pasts come into play with this story. Can a person change? Can they start over and heal a rift? A book you need to read on a full stomach or you will be reaching for the biscuit tin to keep you going as mentions of waffles and their toppings and the… I think I had better stop there I’m feeling hungry again! Gorgeous read and another one to watch out for as part of the Blog Tour.
A wonderful week for reading and a great chance to read a new author and also catch up with some of my other favourite authors.
Take care and Happy Reading,
