*BLOG TOUR* Amazing Grace – Kim Nash ★★★★

Blurb; She’s taking her life back, one step at a time…

Grace thought she had it all. Living in the beautiful village of Little Ollington, along with head teacher husband Mark and gorgeous son, Archie, she devoted herself to being the perfect mum and the perfect wife, her little family giving her everything she ever wanted.

Until that fateful day when she walked in on Mark kissing his secretary – and her perfect life fell apart.

Now she’s a single mum to Archie, trying to find her way in life and keep things together for his sake. Saturday nights consist of a Chinese takeaway eaten in front of the TV clad in greying pyjamas, and she can’t remember the last time she had a kiss from anyone aside from her dog, Becks…

Grace’s life needs a shake up – fast. So when gorgeous gardener Vinnie turns up on her doorstep, his twinkling eyes suggesting that he might be interested in more than just her conifers, she might just have found the answer to her prayers. But as Grace falls deeper for Vinnie, ten-year-old Archie fears that his mum finding love means she’ll never reconcile with the dad he loves.

So when ex-husband Mark begs her for another chance, telling her he’s changed from the man that broke her heart, Grace finds herself with an impossible dilemma. Should she take back Mark and reunite the family that Archie loves? Or risk it all for a new chance of happiness?

My Review; What an outstanding debut. Amazing Grace is uplifting, funny and heart-warming. It is the perfect chick-lit story, you cannot even tell it is a debut it’s brilliantly written.

Amazing Grace is a story lots of readers can relate too. Parts had me laughing out loud! I loved Monica’s character, best friend to Grace and just a little crazy. I think we all have a friend close to being Monica.

I loved every minute of reading this. It didn’t disappoint me. A well deserved four stars from me and I would highly recommend it to you all. I look forward to reading more by Kim in the future. Fingers crossed.

*BLOG TOUR* The Worth Of A Penny – Jess B. Moore ★★★★

Blurb; Sweetheart Penelope Davies is what her daddy calls gullible, right after he told her she was stupid and worthless. With her cheek red from being slapped by him, and her heart trampled by a worthless boyfriend, she packs up and follows her half-brother to Fox River, North Carolina, in need of a fresh start.

Dominic MacKenna is the youngest of five brothers, the friendly one with a killer smile and easy laugh. His brothers are all grown up, and one by one they’re flying the nest, leaving him out of sorts and unsure of his place. Who is he if not the youngest MacKenna?

Penny falls in with the MacKenna brothers, welcomed in as family, and offered the kind of love and support she never knew existed. With a new job and a lot of determination, she is finding out what she’s capable of. The last thing she needs now is to fall in love with the most notorious flirt in town.

Dominic falls for the sweet strong girl with a penchant for random facts and quirky homemade dresses. All he wants is to show Penny how wonderful she is, how smart and funny, and how desired and loved—even if he has to do it as her friend.

My Review; This is the first book I have read by this author and awwwh this is such a beautiful, heart-warming and uplifting story. Just what I needed. Perfection. At the beginning I felt so sorry for Penny she deserved so much better for herself…

Bring in hot, superhero and adorable Dominic and that soon changes her life in more ways than one. He’s the perfect gentleman, the perfect character. Like a dream come true, that can’t be real right?

An easy to read story, one I easily devoured. Enjoyed every minute of it. Especially the perfect ending. However, small towns gossip… Will that get in the way of Penny trying to turn her life around? Brilliantly written. Highly recommend! A well deserved four stars from me.

My Review; This is the last book in the series! NOOOOO. I came into this series a bit late but will definately be going back to read the first books as soon as possible, did read perfectly fine as a standalone though. Short, snappy and packed with a lot of love, friendship and celebration. Heart warming. Uplifting. Parts had me laughing out loud.

The perfect ending to this series. Brilliantly written, an easy read. All the characters feel like friends and family, the town is cute and welcoming. I absolutely loved it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars.
