Pretending by Holly Bourne

  Pretending by Holly Bourne is now available and I would highly recommend adding this book to you TBR pile. This is Bourne’s first US book and she has written several others in the UK, where she lives. Thank you to the publisher for asking me to be a part of the blog tour for this wonderful book. Pretending is about a woman, April, who is tired of men and never finding the right date. She decides to act a Gretel, the woman every man wants. Gretel quickly gets a date with Joshua and everything is going perfectly for Gretel, but how are things going with April?   Review Simply amazing book! It features, April, a normal woman, and Gretel, the perfect woman. They are two very different people within the same person. It sounds like a multiple personality book, but I promise it is not. When Gretel is needed, April channels her and asks herself, what would Gretel do? In her life, April works at a center that helps victims of violence. It’s a hard job especially since she was a victim

The Forgotten Sister by Nicola Cornick

"The Forgotten Sister", by Nicola Cornick is coming out  tomorrow, 10 November. Its a story based on real history going back to the 1560's.  In 1560, Amy is married to a man who prefers Princess Elizabeth over her. At that time divorce is not very easy so Amy looks for other ways out of her loveless marriage. Fast forward to today and Lizzy, who has been a Hollywood star since she was a child, is accused of being involved in the murder of fellow childhood star's wife. Her best friend's family becomes involved to save Lizzy. This story will cover Amy and Lizzy in the present and past and find a unique connection. One of the things I loved best about this book was the back and forth storyline and that it was based on a true story. The author explains more about the true story at the end of the book and it is fascinating.  PROLOGUE  Amy Robsart, Cumnor Village  They came for me one night in the winter of 1752 when the ice was on the pond and the trees bowed under the

Do No Harm by Christina McDonald

Emma is a mother and doctor. Her husband, Nate, is a police officer. Together they have a beautiful son, Josh. Their world turns upside down when Josh is diagnosed with leukemia. The best chance for him to live is with an expensive treatment that their insurance won’t cover. Emma is determined to do whatever it takes to save her son. As a mother I felt for Emma. She needs to do whatever she has to for her son. Emma risks everything to get the necessary money to pay for Josh’s treatment. She has to make some very tough decisions and I loved how the author navigated me through Emma’s decisions. As a doctor she has promised to do no harm. I loved how the author showed how this has so many meanings. This amazing book will be published on 16 February and I highly recommend to put it on you TBR list! I have also read McDonald’s other books, “The Night Olivia Fell” and “Behind Every Lie” and highly recommend them while you wait for this book.  Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the
