*BLOG TOUR* The 12 Christmases of You and Me – Jennifer Joyce (PROMO).

Blurb; What if you could go back in time and fix the biggest mistake of your life?
Two years ago, Maisie’s best friend walked out of her life and she hasn’t heard from him since. When she wakes up in 1994, she naturally assumes she’s dreaming. But when she finds herself in the past again the next night and her actions in the dream alter her present-day life, she begins to wonder if she’s somehow hopping back in time. And if she is time-travelling, can she save her friendship with Jonas?
When Maisie is forced to relive Christmases of the past, will she face up to her mistakes, or make them all over again?
The 12 Christmases of You & Me is a magical tale of friendship, first loves, and learning to live in the present.

*BLOG TOUR* The House Mate – Nina Manning ★★★★

Blurb; The perfect life? …Or the perfect lie?

When Regi moves into her new houseshare, she’s ready for a clean slate. A new home. A new routine. A new identity…

Desperate to escape the shadow of her past that follows her everywhere she goes, Regi finds the ideal distraction in the perfect lives of others on social media.

But as innocent scrolling turns into an unhealthy obsession, Regi will soon learn that seeking perfection comes at a price…

My Review; Straight away I was intrigued and hooked! The story focuses on Regi who is the eldest of her housemates attending uni! She has a form of OCD and something from her past is haunting her… But what?

It’s a bit of a wierd story for me because it flicks between the present and her past. But I didn’t expect the outcome that happened at all, the thing that was haunting her I thought it was far worse than it was. For me it was more of a mystery than thriller… A really good read, I did enjoy it. I was just trying to figure Regi out for most of the story! Different. Unique. Brilliantly written. Page turner and a lovely ending. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* The Christmas Swap – Sandy Barker. ★★★★

Blurb; Chloe, Jules, and Lucy meet at a Maui resort kids’ club, aged 11, forging a lifelong friendship spanning two decades and three continents.

Twenty-two years later, they decide to swap Christmases, none of them expecting the hilarity and romantic escapades that will ensue.

Chloe from Melbourne spends her Christmas with Lucy’s mum and dad in a sleepy village in Oxfordshire, England, stunned to the core when she discovers who grew up across the road from Lucy.

Lucy, who has jetted off to snowy Colorado for her dream-come-true white Christmas, is taken into the fold of Jules’s loud and brash family, discovering more about herself in a few short days than she has in years.

And Jules leaves the cold climes of Colorado to spend a balmy ‘Orphan’s Christmas’ with Chloe’s friends in Melbourne, finding that time away from her mundane life is just what she needed.

Join these three lovable women as they each get a Christmas to surpass their wildest dreams.

My Review; 3 girls. 3 best friends. 3 sisters. 3 different Christmases. Meet Chloe, Lucy and Jules. It all begins when they decide they all want to swap their Christmases around. I mean we all would like to get away huh? But this is different…

It’s a chick-lit, romance and Christmas story all in one. Perfect. Told through each of the characters we get a glimpse into each of their Christmases and none of them expected what would happen to them… They all come back together at the end for New Year and it’s a beautiful happy ending. Their three way friendship is amazing and strong. This story highlights the power of that… Friendship and love. Brilliant endings for all three of them and I’d love to read more about their futures.

Parts had me giggling away so add in a bit of comedy too. It’s a story that will make you smile and warm your heart! Perfect to cosy up with and look forward to Christmas yourself. Brilliantly written. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.
