Santorini Sunsets by Anita Hughes ~ My Thoughts

25912497

Santorini Sunsets

Santorini Sunsets by Anita Hughes
Paperback and e-book, 304 pages
Expected publication: August 2nd 2016 by St. Martin's Griffin

The seventh intoxicating love story by Anita Hughes, set in beautiful Santorini, Greece. When a Hollywood superstar and a NYC society girl fall in love, sparks fly and secrets are revealed.

Brigit Palmer is thrilled to be on the Greek Island of Santorini. She's here for her wedding to Hollywood heart-throb Blake Crawford, one of America's most eligible bachelors. Brigit's parents have rented a villa, and soon guests will arrive from all over the world for the intimate ceremony.

Brigit is a New York socialite, and she's just given up her position at a Manhattan law firm to run her father's philanthropic foundation. Things are finally falling into place. Love, career, family. Everything is going so well...until she steps into the garden and sees her ex-husband Nathaniel hiding in the rose bushes.

Nathaniel, a failed novelist, announces that Blake sold the rights to the wedding to HELLO! Magazine for two million dollars (donated to charity), and he is the reporter assigned to write the story. Everyone expects Brigit to have her happily ever after, including her mother who taught her how to lead the perfect lifestyle, her younger sister Daisy who impatiently wishes for her own love story, and of course, her fiancé. Things are supposed to work out for them. But when Brigit discovers an unsettling secret about Blake, she questions everything she's ever believed about love, and wonders if she's better off alone.

Told in Anita Hughes' spectacularly descriptive prose, Santorini Sunsets is a story about family bonds, first loves, and the question of when to let go and when to hang on as tight as you can.

My thoughts about Santorini Sunsets ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—'Brigit walked down the circular staircase and glanced around the living room of the villa. Every surfacethe antique grand piano, the mahogany coffee table, even the pastel-colored love seatswas covered with wedding presents.'

Brigit is sure that she knows what she wants. And then she discovers that people are not what they first appeared to be. She just wants to be happy and loved but did she throw her one chance at true happiness and love away all those years ago? Can she find it again with Blake? Or is he the problem?

I loved my little trip to Santorini and I enjoyed living the high life with Brigit and her fiancé, Blake, even if it was only in my head. Santorini Sunsets is the first Anita Hughes book that I have read and I enjoyed her writing style and her descriptive passages. I really felt like I was there in the Greek Islands with the family and the wedding party. Such a beautiful story in so many ways!

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

Not a very exciting week, this past week. The weekend was busy with grandkids, which is always wonderful. At work, a woman retired last week after working in our library for 35 years. That is just amazing to me, 35 years at the same job. She is a reader so I am sure she is looking forward to more reading time. I know I would be! Not sure what our plans are for the upcoming 4th of July/3 day weekend but I am sure it will be busy. Happy reading everyone!

Book Spotlight Giveaway! One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis


I have sooooo many books! I have a ton of print books and probably even more e-books. The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. There are a lot of different reasons that I might be letting some of my books go, the biggest one is that when we moved 2 years ago I discovered how many books I really do have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy them.

****************************

The book that I am featuring today, One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis, is an ARC that I read for a book tour in December. I really liked the book and you can read my thoughts below. 

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!

One Step Too Far

One Step Too Far by Tina Seskis
Print and e-book, 304 pages
William Morrow Paperbacks; Reprint edition (December 1, 2015)

An apparently happy marriage. A beautiful family. A dream home. So what makes lawyer Emily Coleman—a woman who appears to have everything—get up one morning and walk right out of her life to start again as someone new?

Deliberately losing herself in London, Emily quickly transforms herself into Cat. Along with her new name, she finds a new home in a shared house in North London teeming with an odd assortment of flatmates, and a new job as a receptionist.

Soon Cat has buried any trace of her old self so well, no one knows how to find her. But she can’t bury the past—or her own painful memories. As the days turn to months, thoughts of all she’s left behind begin to consume her. She cannot outrun the ghosts that haunt her, no matter how hard she tries to elude them. And soon, she’ll have to face the truth of what she’s done—a shocking revelation that may push her one step too far. . . .



My thoughts about One Step Too Far ~~
(originally posted December 10, 2015)

From the very first chapter, we learn that Catherine, aka Emily, is running away from something; running away from her family and running away from the only life she knows. We don't know why she is running away and we spend the rest of the story learning how she reinvents herself and how she puts the past behind her.

The not knowing is what drew me into this story. I just had to find out what was so terrible that this woman would give up the man she loved and her treasured little boy as she tried to erase them from her life.

Along the way we met some great characters who become a part of Cat's new life. Some of them are good for her and good to her and then there are others who only bring her down. She quickly learns who she can trust. Cat is a twin and I thought the relationship between Cat and her sister was a very interesting part of the story. They are as different as night and day and the dynamics between them kept the story very interesting.

This was a great read and kept my attention throughout. Like I said, I had to find out what was so bad that Emily felt she had to leave her life and start a new one. And the twists at the end made the overall story very satisfying.

About the author

Tina Seskis

I grew up in Hampshire, England, where my father worked at Heathrow for British Airways and my mother was in sales. My parents bestowed upon me a certain degree of eccentricity: my dad amongst other things built a boat in the front garden on our commuter belt housing estate, moved us into a touring caravan when our new house wasn’t built, and took us all over the world with his free air travel and limited budget. I think part of my story-telling is shaped by those experiences.

I studied business at the University of Bath and then worked for over twenty years in marketing, advertising and online sales, with varying degrees of success, before starting to write.

I originally wrote One Step Too Far for my mum, whilst attending a local writing class on a Thursday afternoon. I completed my second novel When We Were Friends (formerly called A Serpentine Affair) in 2011. It took me way longer to finally get the books published, and One Step Too Far is now available in over 60 countries.

I live in North London with my husband and son, and currently write full-time(ish). You can follow my daily tribulations with writing, dogs, mice, moths etc on Twitter at @tinaseskis or on my Facebook page.

The Last Dreamer by Barbara Solomon Josselsohn ~ My Thoughts and a Giveaway!

25789575

The Last Dreamer

The Last Dreamer by Barbara Solomon Josselsohn
Paperback and e-book, 228 pages
Published December 15th 2015 by Lake Union Publishing

Iliana Passing—wife, mother, and former acclaimed journalist—gave up her career to start a family. Almost fifteen years later, despite how much she loves her husband and kids, she can’t help wondering how she ended up with a life spent carpooling and running errands.

Ready to get back into the journalism game, Iliana searches for an exciting lead. When she discovers that Jeff Downs, the heartthrob star of an old TV show and her girlhood crush, now owns a nearby textile company, she thinks she’s found her story: teen celebrity and its aftermath. But as Iliana gets to know Jeff, the two grow closer than she ever could’ve imagined. Now that her teenage dream has walked into her present-day reality, how far will she go to entertain an old fantasy?

My thoughts about The Last Dreamer ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—'Hey Stuart! I read on the Business Times website yesterday that you've been named editor in chief. Congratulations! Seems like yesterday when we were churning out news stories together, doesn't it?'

Don't we all have that fantasy of our past being so much better than our present? If only we would have..... Well, Iliana is a bit dissatisfied with her life and has a chance to relive part of her past. Will she find out that it was everything she shouldn't have left behind?

I really enjoyed The Last Dreamer but I can't say that the main character, Iliana, was a person I would have liked to have in my life. But hey, we don't all have to love the main character, do we? A character that stirs emotions in us is a great character. Ilania finds herself lying to everyone around her in order to live out her fantasy and she can't just be happy with what she's got.

The Last Dreamer is a wonderful story that made me stop and think about my past and the paths I took to get where I am today. I'm pretty sure there were some things I would have done differently but I would want the end of the path to be right where I am today.

Special thanks go out to TLC Book Tours for sending copies of 
The Last Dreamer to my book club.

Release Day: Sunshine Beach by Wendy Wax ~ My Thoughts

Happy Release Day!

27209401

Sunshine Beach

Sunshine Beach (Ten Beach Road #4) by Wendy Wax 
Series: Ten Beach Road #4
Print and e-book, 432 pages
Published: June 21st 2016 by Berkley

In this brand-new summer read by the USA Today bestselling author of The House on Mermaid Point, three women join forces to bring a historic seaside hotel back to life…

There’s nothing that a fresh coat of paint and a few glasses of wine can’t fix…

After losing their life savings in a Ponzi scheme, Maddie, Avery, and Nikki have banded together to make the most of what they have left, using their determination, ingenuity, guts, and a large dose of elbow grease. It’s Maddie’s daughter Kyra who stumbles across a once glorious beachfront hotel that has fallen into disrepair. The opportunity to renovate this seaside jewel is too good to pass up—especially when they come up with the idea of shooting their own independent television show about the restoration. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything. With the cameras rolling, Maddie’s second-chance romance with her all-too-famous new boyfriend gets complicated, Avery struggles with grief over the loss of her mother, and Nikki’s reluctance to commit to the man who loves her could leave her to face the biggest challenge of her life. Even the hotel seems to be against them, when their renovation uncovers a decades-old unsolved murder which just might bring their lives tumbling down all over again…

My thoughts about Sunshine Beach ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—'She climbed onto the diving board and waited until she has an audience. Waited for the fathers to look up from their newspapers. The mothers to stop fingering the smooth ivory mah-jongg tiles.'

I have been wanting to read the Ten Beach Road series for quite awhile. When I saw Sunshine Beach, book number 4, offered I jumped at the chance to read it. Even though it was book four and I am one who likes to read books in a series in order, I really enjoyed this look at the lives of Maddie, Avery, Nikki, and Kyra.

I have to admit that it took me a few pages to warm up to some of the characters, just because I was lacking some of the backstories that made them who they are. But once I was able to understand how all the characters related to each other, I found myself completely engaged in the story.

Now that I have spent some time in the Ten Beach Road world, I will be looking forward to another trip back. I need to go back and start with book #1 so I can really connect with these four fabulous women.

I received a copy of this book from First to Read in exchange for my honest opinion. 


About the author

Wendy  Wax

I write novels that explore friendship, self-discovery and the challenges life brings us, leavened with a touch of humor. I'm proud of all my books and perhaps best known for my "Ten Beach Road" titles including the USA Today bestsellers, Ten Beach Road and The House on Mermaid Point, and for While We Were Watching Downton Abbey.

I was born in St.Petersburg, Florida and grew up on St. Pete Beach within spitting distance of the Gulf of Mexico. I went, appropriately enough, to Sunshine Elementary School where recess and art class sometimes took place on the beach, and the highlight of every school year was the annual fish broil.

It’s hard to be a type-A personality when you grow up in such a laid back environment, but I managed. Convinced that you were expected to know how to read BEFORE you showed up for school, I forced a neighbor friend to teach me to read at the age of five. I’ve been reading ever since.

Books, in all forms, are one of my greatest pleasures and best forms of escape. And they’ve had a major impact on my life.

I went to the University of Georgia after reading Gone with the Wind one too many times. For a while I re-read Margaret Mitchell’s classic yearly, saw the movie whenever it played within twenty miles, and could quote large passages from memory. Today I have a growing GWTW collection, and the time I spoke at the Margaret Mitchell House was an incredible thrill.last

After college I worked in radio, television, and film. Like Olivia in 7 DAYS AND SEVEN NIGHTS, I’ve done live talk radio. I hosted a show in the eighties called Desperate & Dateless, and while I was never locked in an apartment for a week with a webcam rolling as she was, I did fall in love. Happily, the man who swept me off my feet consults with financial types and understands the bottom line. Unlike Olivia’s nemesis, Matt Ransom, my husband has never, to my knowledge, advised anyone to ‘love the one they’re with.’ We live in Atlanta with our two sons.

It's been a long nine years for her, full of both good times and bad times. I am happy that I can be around to give her some support.  Other than that, we celebrated Father's Day and our oldest daughter's birthday yesterday and we will celebrate our youngest grandson's second birthday today.

My Bad-Boy Summer

My Bad-Boy Summer by Ann Herrick
ebook, 151 pages
Genre: YA romance
Published May 26th 2016 by Books We Love Ltd.

Will Nolan give up his bad-boy ways for Vija?

17-year-old Vija Skalbe wants to be an all-American girl—no matter how hard her parents try to impose their strict Latvian standards on her. She feels unsure of herself with one foot in each country.

Then Nolan, a folksinger, steals her heart at a coffeehouse. When Nolan stops at their table, it's Vija's friend, Caprice, who does all the talking. But it is Vija who gets his phone number—and later the back seat of his motorcycle. Soon she is cruising from one adventure to another, dizzy with joy, her new-found freedom and the excitement of being with the kind of guy who is a challenge.

However, when her father has a heart attack, Vija must take over running the family lawn-care business. She feels overwhelmed until sweet brainiac Joel volunteers to help. He shares the workload and lifts her spirits with his humor. But it is Nolan who fills her heart.

It doesn't matter that Nolan wants everything his way. Or that he's constantly eyeing other girls. Or that he can be pouty and punitive. Or that he says she's seeing things all wrong. Until it does matter. But Vija's in so deep. Will he change? Will she deal with Nolan's controlling tactics, or is she too far under his spell?

  

About the author


Ann Herrick is the author of several books and short stories for kids and teens. Her books have won several awards, such as the ALA Recommended Book for Reluctant Readers award and an IRA/CBC Children’s Choice award. Her stories have appeared in magazines such as 'Teen, Listen, The Single Parent, Children's Digest and The Friends.

Ann Herrick grew up in Connecticut, where she graduated from The Morgan School and Quinnipiac University. She now lives in Oregon with her husband, who was her high-school sweetheart. Their wonderful daughter is grown, married and gainfully employed, and has given Ann her only grand-dog, Puff, a bloodhound-rottweiller-beagle mix.

The vast majority of Ann's books are HFN (Happily For Now, with the possibility of Happily Ever After. The characters are in their teens, after all, so Ever After would be a *really* long time.) Two books have positive endings, but not the standard HFN or HEA, but with those possibilities if the reader reads very carefully between the lines at the end of the story.

Release Day: The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd by Bette Lee Crosby

Happy Release Day!!

29983645

The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd

The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd by Bette Lee Crosby
Series: Wyattsville #4
Kindle Edition, 244 pages
Published: June 15, 2016 by Bent Pine Publishing

Revenge, death, deception... These are the things Cyrus Dodd has to overcome if he is to give Ruth the life he's promised her. The problem is he's got a prideful nature and when a seemingly innocuous argument leads to a bitter feud with his neighbor, his life changes forever. The plans he has falls by the wayside and before he finds a way to fix it, he comes to understand the meaning of regret.

In this early twentieth century family saga, two men come up against each other--both are iron-willed and stubborn. One will lose his farm; the other will lose his family. In a tale of betrayal, murder and revenge two West Virginia farmers will discover that being right does not necessarily mean being happy.

Believing he has lost everything Cyrus Dodd is forced to start over. He promises Ruth that this time it will be better, but the truth is he doesn't know if it's a promise he can keep.

My thoughts about The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd ~~
(originally posted on May 26, 2016)

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—'I have heard it said that a man who cries is spineless, a weakling not worthy of his salt, but this I can tell you: a man who has never shed a tear has not yet learned to love.'

I just love the wisdom and insight in this first line. Like all of Bette's book, this one is packed full of beautiful lines and wise advice. I was lucky enough to get a chance to be an early reader of The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd and whenever I get my hands on one of Bette's books, I drop everything to read them. And as luck would have it, I had the day off from work that day, so I was able to devour, yet savor this lovely book.

This is book #4 in the Wyattsville series and I always love it when I get to go back to Wyattsville. All the wonderful people that I have come to know and love are there and I get to spend time with all of them again. In this story, we meet Cyrus and his wife, Ruth as they go through the trials and tribulations put before them. Cyrus lives with the regrets that he has and can't see all of the good in his life. As the two of them make their way to Wyattsville, will he finally be able to realize that he has to let go of those regrets to finally be happy?

'I regret all those years of thinking I had a bunch of regrets.'

Bette has done it again! She has written another wonderful, gentle story full of loveable characters. She writes such beautiful words and imparts so much wisdom in her stories, wisdom that we can all learn from. Thank you Bette, for another great trip back to Wyattsville!

About the author


USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review

The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures."

Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down."

"Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write."

It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky characters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.
