The Juggle is a story of swapped lives, of personal growth, and owning up mistakes. It might look like your clear-cut romcom story, but if you’re willing to dig a little deeper, look a little further, then you’ll see what’s beyond the surface.
In Whisper Cottage we follow Stina and Jack, a married couple who decide to ditch their big city life and move to the countryside, hoping for a fresh, bucolic start. They’re expecting a kid; the small village of Avoncote is as charming as the cottage they bought, and the widow who lives next door looks so nice - right?
Meet Alice: a woman who loves her job, doesn’t like to share her things, and has an annoying ex. Meet Jamie: a man who has some secrets, doesn’t mind sharing, and is not that enthusiastic to return to the office.
Parritt’s writing is rich, her style engaging. The plot has some surprises in store for the reader too, and Emma’s character growth is a plus in my book. Another praise goes to the cast of characters, as they're realistic and a strong support to the story. Well done!
Love in a Time of Hate turned out to be an interesting book, giving me more than expected. It follows the adventures of Emmett Collins in post-war New Orleans, where he’s trying to make a difference and improve the lives of former slaves.
A delightful novel with a finale that’s just heartwarming. If you like feel-good stories, you’re in for a treat.
Radford promised me a summer romance and hey, she did deliver. The Spanish House is a quirky yet nostalgic story about an actress on a quest for happiness, a happiness that goes hand in hand with a list of tasks she’s supposed to fulfill.
Well, wow. Watch For Me is both the kind of book I wasn’t expecting to read and one that met my expectations to a T.
There’s something about Katie, you see. Her life is both messy and super organized, a dichotomy that pushed my reading boundaries--always a good thing--and intrigued me.
Surprise Reunion with His Cinderella feels like a deep dive in the past, when life was better (but for one reason) and the future seemed to stretch bright in front of me. A welcome, cool dive? You bet.
