My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle is book two in Sarah Bennetts Bluebell castle series and my first book by the author. I absolutely fell in love with her writing. 

This book can totally be read as a standalone, but after finishing the second book, I definitely want to read the first one as well. The main characters of the first book play an important role in this one as well and I really want to get to know them as well. The series is about triplets, who live at Camland Castle and went through a lot in the past. 

Iggy Ludworth is the main character in this story,. She wants to restore the castles gardens to its former glory. She hires non other than celebrity gardener Will Talbot. They are not off the best start, but things seem to blossom fast. I really liked the energy and chemistry between them and the author captured it beautifully. The triplets mother Helena suddenly shows up as well and seems interested in their lives, well... Helena is quite something, but she adds a lot of drama tot he storyline.

Sarah Bennetts writing is full of passion, heart and love. I enjoyed every second o fit and Im really looking forward to the next book in the series.

Cover Reveal - Outscored by Aven Ellis

Rinkside in the Rockies #3
Publisher - Self Published
Release Date - 25th September 2019


 One bubbly seasonal decorator. One fiery hockey captain. And a wagon full of gnomes who play matchmaker better than Cupid …
When seasonal stylist Whitney Green heads to a Denver flea market to find gnomes for a client’s upcoming party, she thinks she has hit the jackpot when she discovers a slew of them.
Little does she know that gnomes aren’t going to be the only thing she picks up that Saturday.
When fate throws Whitney and hockey superstar Gavin Tremblay together, she finds herself questioning her policy of staying on the bench when it comes to romance. She came to the Rockies to escape the pain of a broken heart. Not to date. Especially when she knows she is due to return to Seattle in four months and she can’t figure out what went wrong in her last relationship ...
The captain isn’t looking for love, either. Battered and bruised by not only a broken romance but a devastating leg injury, he’s focused on getting his game back. The last time he trusted his heart it gutted him. He refuses to go down that path again.
But the chemistry between Gavin and Whitney is too hot to deny and falling in love is the only option. However, when personal fears come to the surface and cause problems between them, can a relationship prevail? Or will defense outscore offense in this game of love?
Outscored is a laugh out loud, swoony romance with a good-boy hero and a hilarious heroine. Flamingos, gnomes, and a happily ever after are guaranteed in this book.

About the Author

I live in the Dallas area with my family. I enjoy clipping out recipes I will never get around to trying, working out, and chatting with friends on social media. I’m a hockey nut (Go Stars!) and watch as much as humanly possible. I also love shopping and fashion and admit to being obsessed with whatever the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing. In addition to be obsessed with the Duchess, I’m equally obsessed with any show or cookbook featuring Gordon Ramsay.

Accidental Heroes – by Danielle Steel

The blurb: 

On a beautiful May morning at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport, two planes have just departed for San Francisco—one a 757, another a smaller Airbus A321. At a security checkpoint, TSA agent Bernice Adams finds a postcard of the Golden Gate Bridge bearing an ambiguous—perhaps ominous—message. Her supervisor dismisses her concerns, but Bernice calls security and soon Ben Waterman arrives. A senior Homeland Security agent, still grappling with guilt after a disastrous operation in which hostages were killed, Ben too becomes suspicious. Who left the postcard behind, which flight is that person on, and what exactly does the message mean?

As Ben scans the passenger manifests, his focus turns to the A321, with Helen Smith as its senior pilot. Helen’s military service and her tenure with the airline have been exemplary. But her husband’s savage death in Iraq was more than anyone should bear, leaving her widowed with three children. A major film star is on board. So is an off-duty pilot who has just lost his forty-year career. So is a distraught father, traveling with the baby son he has abducted from his estranged wife. Sifting through data and relying on instinct, Ben becomes convinced that someone on Helen’s plane is planning something terrible. And he’s right. Passengers, crew, and experts on the ground become heroes out of necessity to try to avert tragedy at the eleventh hour.

In her stunning novel, Danielle Steel combines intense action with stories of emotionally rich, intertwined lives. As the jet bears down on its destination of San Francisco, strangers are united, desperate choices are made, and futures will be changed forever by a handful of accidental heroes.

My Opinion:

In all my years as a book blogger, I never read a Danielle Steel book. My mum loves her books and always recommends them to me, so I started reading this one!

It’s a about a plane flying from New York to San Francisco and they are afraid somebody is going to crash it. The book tells the story of different people: Bernice, a woman, who finds a postcard with an ominous message or Ben, who is dealing with the problems from the ground, all the passengers, the pilot etc. It means getting to know a lot of people and their lives, which is a lot in the beginning, but once you know them, it gets really interesting. All these characters play a key role in this story, so they need to be talked about. 

I was hooked from the beginning, it gets very intense at some point and I just couldn’t stop reading, because I needed to know what happens. The author’s style is very gripping, exciting, mysterious and intense. I felt like watching a movie, it all seemed so real. The writing is very descriptive and full of details. 

I have never read a book like this and really enjoyed it. I have definitely become a Danielle Steel fan and look forward to reading more stories written by her. 

I also liked, how the story continued after all seemed over.
