*BLOG TOUR* Clara’s Christmas Magic – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; This Christmas, Clara is yearning for a little magic. Will her hopes be dashed? Or will this festive season turn out to be the one when all her wildest dreams come true?

My Review; This is the final book in the trilogy of Clara’s life, I have loved and enjoyed them all but this was a perfect way to end her whole story and the trilogy. It’s a beautiful Christmas read, uplifting, warm and full of happy endings. These are best read in order. I have loved every single book Rosie has written yet. But this one had some brilliant characters. Clara. Freda. Bertie. Lois. Paula. Rory. I especially loved the whole Christmas/Snow in New York and how the ending came back to the beginning and the first story. Loved it. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars.

*BLOG TOUR* A Winter Wish – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; With her new-found happiness unexpectedly crushed, Clara is struggling to move forward. It’s hard – especially with step-sister Lois bouncing around the place with joy and making all sorts of plans for the future. When step-mum Irene starts behaving oddly and a neighbour makes a shocking accusation, Clara finds herself in an impossible position. And it’s a situation that threatens to destroy her blossoming romance almost before it’s begun . . .

My Review; Book one before this (Clara’s Secret Garden) needs to be read first otherwise you will not understand this story as fully as you could, does not work as a standalone. But I absolutely loved this. It is a short read which follows straight on from book one. I adore Claras character. Now she is part of a very dysfunctional family and her step sister is dating the man of her dreams and there is ALOT of family drama in this story but there is also the resolving of said issues, hope, a happy ending and an adventure awaits which I’m guessing will take us straight into the next book. It does contain the famous Duck Pond Cafe as she works their part time but this little trilogy focuses more on Clara and her family. Another book I devoured and loved and would highly recommend to you all. I am a huge Rosie Green fan. I look forward to book three already. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* Clara’s Secret Garden – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; When Clara Bowes transforms a wilderness of a garden, she isn’t expecting to reconnect with someone special from her past at the same time. Having Rory Angel in her life again is a dream come true. But life is never straight forward – especially in matters of the heart – and soon, a devastating revelation looks set to bring Clara’s hopes for the future crashing down around her. Will she find the strength to reach for her dreams? Don’t miss this gorgeously sunny read, perfect for the summer months!

My Review; It’s been a while since I read this series or author and reading this one made me realise just how much I missed it and loved it. This is a shortish read which I devoured 70% of in one night and loved it all. In this book we meet main character Clara who is part of a very dysfunctional family and she is very protective over her little brother Bertie. I loved them both. Clara hasn’t had the easiest of upbrings but in this story we see her blossom and bloom and find what she likes and wants to do. Bring in an old time friend and crush Rory is this her chance to rekindle that friendship and maybe hope for more? Or is that wishful thinking all these years later. This story includes some of our favourite characters from the duck pond cafe and the famous village green which I can still imagine picture perfect. Fabulous read. Enjoyed every page. A well deserved four stars from me. It is part of a series but reads perfectly as a standalone.
