Book Review ~ ‘A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love’ by Linn B. Halton ~ 5 Stars!

What a gorgeous, feel-good read this was. ‘A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love’ will hit just the spot when you need to while away the winter hours with a handsome hero, lots of cakes and a slow-burning, heartfelt romance.

Katie’s story will resonate with many readers. Trapped in a relationship that is turning progressively more and more suffocating as she tries to balance her dream job at her bakery and her romantic life, she finds herself giving her partner Steve more power over her business in an attempt to make profits. But what happens when your dream starts becoming a nightmare? I really felt for Katie, and throughout the novel we get to see her go through ups and downs in her life which we will all relate to, and sympathise with.

Enter Adam, not just once when she needs somebody, but again and again, and an unlikely friendship forms. That is what I loved so much about this story. It’s romantic in its slow-burning way, but at its heart it is a story about the strength of friendship and how for every relationship it will only work when the time is right, and that can take many years, and many cupcakes! I adored seeing the chapters where Adam is with his daughter, and my heart melted at the strength of their affection for each other. With the added extra of the no-nonsense, yet secret romantic Grandma Grace, this book had the most wonderful  collection of characters that I felt were my own friends.

A beautiful story, perfect for cuddling up with on a cold winter night, ‘A Little Sugar, A Lot of Love’ is a definite must-read for lovers of romance!

5 Stars!

Book Review ~ ‘The Legend of the Gypsy Hawk’ by Sally Malcolm ~ 5 Stars!

I don’t know how to even begin with this review. This is one of those books that I literally devoured and then sat back afterwards in awe thinking, “What do I do with myself now?” I was just so engrossed in their story. My heart was broken and patched together again throughout this novel, and I still can’t get over how much it meant to me!

Amelia and Zach’s story takes you on an exhilarating adventure that spans years, from the pirate safehold ‘Ile Sainte Anne’ across the treacherous seas, to the city of London, accompanied with a lot of pain, heartache, and a lot of love.

I’m basically in love with Zach, and no I shall not apologise for that. Sally Malcolm doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of history, and in turn doesn’t make Zach an unrecognisable pirate. No he was in turns stubborn, gruff and dangerous, whilst also possessing that charming swagger that had women fall for his bad-boy ways. And then you get Captain Amelia Dauphin, who is not as easily impressed. Their back and forth banter throughout the novel had me in stitches one minute and then wanting to bang their stubborn heads together in the next. Their chemistry was electric and I loved seeing how the change in setting affected their relationship and how comfortable they were with each other.

I don’t want to say anything more about the story, because it ripped me apart, had me frantically turning the page and desperate to know what was going to happen next, to see who would survive and whether forgiveness is ever really possible after betrayal….and really I want to put you through this too! (evil laugh)

This is a must-read for historical romance fans, and will put your emotions through the ringer. Enjoy!

5 Stars!
