It's Monday! What Are You Reading

Now Hosted by Book Date

So I had another fantastic reading week last week as I book binged my way through C.S Pacat’s Captive Prince Trilogy. If you haven’t read these books, I highly recommend them. But beware if you do read them, you won’t get anything else done. You have been warned.

Sadly I wasn’t as active on the blog last week as normal as I read a lot more, and had a lot of personal things going on. But I’ve got a few things planned for this week, so things should pick up quickly 🙂 Last chance to enter the giveaway for the YA Chronicles Box as well as it ends this week. The link is down below!

I’m back at the doctor this week re: my back so hopefully things keep improving and there’s some good news. I can still touch my knees! And I’m still celebrating that fact 🙂 Tingling and numbness in my legs is still being a pain – literally! But I can see signs of improvement in my back and I’m just hopeful now.

A Bunyip Bay novel

Frankie and Simone are sisters and best friends. Could a new man in town drive a wedge between them for the first time ever?

Cafe owner Frankie has been unlucky in love all her life. It’s hard in a small town like Bunyip Bay to meet prospective partners. Her sister, Simone, lost the love of her live years before and is now devoted to raising their two teenage girls, leaving little time for romance. When Frankie is kissed by a handsome stranger who calls her Simone, it’s a case of mistaken identity – but who is this man and how does he know Simone?

Logan Knight is in town to meet up with a woman he has met online. Although raised on a farm with his brother Angus, he has travelled the world as a journalist and is now looking forward to meeting a girl and settling down. The girl in the cafe was an amazing kisser – but not the one he thought he was meeting!

Reclusive farmer Angus wants nothing to do with Logan’s plans for improving the property’s finances and finding a partner – until he meets the sisters at a wedding. Who is attracted to whom? More importantly, can Frankie and Simone sort out their feelings for the two brothers without destroying their very close bond.

 

 

 passage, n.
i. A brief section of music composed of a series of notes and flourishes.
ii. A journey by water; a voyage.
iii. The transition from one place to another, across space and time.

In one devastating night, violin prodigy Etta Spencer loses everything she knows and loves. Thrust into an unfamiliar world by a stranger with a dangerous agenda, Etta is certain of only one thing: she has traveled not just miles but years from home. And she’s inherited a legacy she knows nothing about from a family whose existence she’s never heard of. Until now.

Nicholas Carter is content with his life at sea, free from the Ironwoods—a powerful family in the colonies—and the servitude he’s known at their hands. But with the arrival of an unusual passenger on his ship comes the insistent pull of the past that he can’t escape and the family that won’t let him go so easily. Now the Ironwoods are searching for a stolen object of untold value, one they believe only Etta, Nicholas’ passenger, can find. In order to protect her, he must ensure she brings it back to them— whether she wants to or not.

Together, Etta and Nicholas embark on a perilous journey across centuries and continents, piecing together clues left behind by the traveler who will do anything to keep the object out of the Ironwoods’ grasp. But as they get closer to the truth of their search, and the deadly game the Ironwoods are play­ing, treacherous forces threaten to sep­arate Etta not only from Nicholas but from her path home . . . forever.

Hoping To Read This Week:

A sparkling, highly entertaining romantic comedy about beloved country girl group the Darling Songbirds, from the bestselling author of Eliza’s Gift.

Love is a country song waiting to happen . . .

Adele, Molly and Lana are the Darling Songbirds, the country-singing sisters who gained fame in their teens for their smart lyrics and sweet harmonies. But when their father died suddenly on the eve of their big tour, the group acrimoniously broke up.

Now, eleven years on, Adele arrives back in Darling Bay, the sleepy gold-rush town founded by her great-grandfather. For Uncle Hugh has bequeathed to the sisters his hotel and bar the Golden Spike.

Except this is not the welcoming saloon Adele remembers from her childhood. The building is a ruin, the business is broke and customers are scarce.

Add into the mix Nate Houston – the handsome, guitar-playing barman who had always believed he would be the next owner – and Adele has one potent cocktail on her hands.

She needs Molly and Lana now more than ever – but the heartache still runs deep. Can a rundown saloon in a sleepy town finally offer the sisters a way back home?

The Darling Songbirds is the first in a delightful romantic comedy series, filled with music, laughter and one sexy cowboy.
