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 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.

*BLOG TOUR* The Cornish Key to Happiness – Laura Briggs ★★★★

Blurb; Past secrets return to complicate Maisie’s future with the charming Sidney Daniels in the final installment of the Cornish romance series.
Picking up where book seven left off, Maisie’s plans to celebrate her book’s thrilling news remain on hold after Sidney has vanished from Port Hewer overnight, following a brush with his secret past. His departure leaves Maisie with a head full of questions and a heart torn in two, made even worse by the rumors flying about him through the town. Where and why has he gone? Will he ever come back again? And—foremost in Maisie’s mind—was the heartache from his younger days somehow to blame for his sudden and mysterious flight?
But when Dean convinces her that Sidney may be facing a choice that could ruin his life, Maisie must set out to find him, once again leaving behind the Cornish seaside haven of Port Hewer she’s come to think of as home, and leaving behind the answer to a secret she’s been longing to know since the beginning. Not knowing when or if she’ll return, she’s taking the biggest risk with her heart so far…and the truth she discovers waiting for her at the end of her journey will make her wonder if things can ever possibly be the same as they were before.
Questions are answered, secrets are spilled, and the biggest reveal of the series is finally unveiled as A LITTLE HOTEL IN CORNWALL reaches its exciting conclusion.

My Review; Well ain’t I an idiot huh? This is book eight in a little hotel in Cornwall series and I have not read any books before this one. D’oh! Stupid me eh. Didn’t really work for me as a standalone as I came into this series extremely late.

Also there was no chapters at all! It’s one continuous long story from start to finish, would have been better for me with chapters added. I understood the story but it was mostly set in one location a huge mansion… The ending was nice though. We all love a good ending right?

Sidney/Alex is torn into two between his past life, family and secrets and the future and life he wants to live. Maisie just wants to make sure he does what he thinks is best and make sure he happy. I liked her character. An easy, shortish read. Four stars from me. A good read.
