Not as many as in the last two months, but some wonderful ones, I picked two this time, one really emotional and touching one and the other one is very entertaining, funny and brilliantly written:

The Life Intended – Kristin Harmel

The bit on the back:

After her husband's sudden death over ten years ago, Kate Westhoven never expected to be lucky enough to find another love of her life. But now she's planning her second walk down the aisle to a perfectly nice man. So why isn't she more excited?

At first, Kate blames her pre-wedding jitters on stress. But when she starts seeing Patrick, her late husband, in her dreams, she begins to wonder if she's really ready to move on. Is Patrick trying to tell her something about his death and is there a chance his nighttime visits could be more than just wishful thinking?

My opinion:

What a WONDERFUL book! This story is beautiful, poignant, heart breaking, wonderful, touching and so much more. The writing is brilliant, the characters are authentic and real and the scenes are so vivid and detailed. The story has a beautiful flow and it’s full of love and care. It’s thought provoking and gives a whole new light on life. I think the title is perfect; it fits the story in the most wonderful way.

The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance – Kirsty Greenwood

The bit on the back:

Jessica Beam is a girl who knows how to party. Only lately she's been forgetting to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Down on her luck, out of a job and homeless, Jess seeks the help of her long-lost grandmother.

Things aren't going well for Matilda Beam, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage repayments are staggering and her granddaughter wears neon Wonderbras!

When a lifeline from a London publisher arrives, the pair have an opportunity to secure the roof over their heads – by invigorating the Good Woman guides and transforming modern, rebellious Jess into a demure vintage lady.

The true test of their make-over will be to capture the heart of notorious London playboy Leo Frost and prove that Matilda’s guides still work. It's going to take commitment, nerves of steel and one seriously pointy bra to pull this off...

My opinion:

Kirsty is a wonderful writer, who writes with passion and heart. The storyline has a beautiful flow and the scenes are vivid and detailed, I enjoyed every single second of this book! GRIPPING, FABULOUS AND AWESOME!!!!!!!!!
