Thank you for joining my stop on Rachel’s Random Resources tour for The Holiday . About the Book: It was meant to be the perfect getaway…As I board the plane, all I can feel is hope and excitement. One whole week away. Just me and the man I have promised to be with forever. Time to repair what has been broken. Maybe even try for another baby, and pray that this time it doesn’t end heartbreakingly. I just need to not think about what George has done. He’s my husband. And this is the holiday where we make things right. But then I realise he can’t take his eyes off the beautiful woman who’s just boarded the plane in front of me… In that moment, everything changes. And nobody is safe.   Review: The Holiday is a great classic thriller with an unhappy marriage and a greedy husband. I loved to hate the husband because he is a terrible man. The authors did an excellent job writing about him and the other characters. I would definitely read more book by this author. Purchase Link: htt

Thank you for joining me on my stop on Rachel's Random Tours for Camilla Isley's book, It's Complicated . I recently read my first book by Camilla and loved it. I have to say I loved this book too! About the Book: Lori has been in love with her best friend Aiden since college. Now Aiden (handsome, fair, All-American dream doctor) is getting married, and Lori desperately needs a date to the wedding. So she asks the best man, Jace (tall, dark, and brooding), to pretend their platonic friendship is something more not to have to face the worst day of her life alone. Fake dating one best friend to forget the other should be easy… Plot twist—it’s not. When Jace starts acting like the sweetest, most attentive boyfriend, Lori begins to wonder if she’s been seeing him wrong all this time? They've been an inseparable trio since freshman year, but now everything is changing — and that's not even bringing Jace's feelings into the mix. Basically? It’s complicated.
