My Review
The front cover is quite eye catching what with the bright moon and the night sky in the background so it definitely caught my attention as soon as I saw it. So what did we think...

My two children loved the story of Snugglewump and how he went on a little journey and finally figures out that he is also loved just like the other toys. There is just the right amount of text on each page to keep children interested in the story. It was lovely to see the writing in different places on each page too. A beautiful tale of toys a…

My Review

My little girl saw the front cover and kept saying cat over and over again until I started reading. I think it's safe to say she liked the front cover. So what did we think...
I think most parents can relate to this book as our children often make demands some more outlandish than others. It is such a fun story about a magic cat and how much trouble Mirabel's wishes create.

The illustrations are bright and wonderfully eye catching they really do compliment the story perfectly. E…

About the book

We used to be best friends…

Magda used to be the girl everyone wanted to be – most likely to achieve her every wish. That is until suddenly her perfect life seems to be anything but!

Sophia has never regretted her life, sure it isn’t perfect, but being a single mum to a daughter she loves is pretty great. Perhaps she never moved away from home, or got to live out her dreams, but what she has right now isn’t so bad.

That is until an invitation to their school reunion arrives, throwing both their lives into a spin – because these two used to be friends and it might finally be time to face up to that one big mistake that happened all those years ago…

My Review
This is book 6 in the Vivienne Series and I am always eager to see what is next for Vivienne. So what did I think...

We pick up where book 5 ended so to be honest it would be probably a good idea to read the series in order. It has been a great journey so far seeing Vivienne continue to grow and become a strong and independent person. She has had some setbacks but everything in her work life seems to be on track at the moment, however her personal life is shall we say a little bit messy. 

This book follows Vivienne as she gets to know…

About the book
Stuck in a dead-end relationship, Erica Bennett finds herself daydreaming of her first holiday romance. She was fifteen, it was exciting, new and full of possibilities…and Jack Lawson was hot as hell. That kind of thing leaves a mark.
So when her friends suggest a girls holiday to Luna Island, it’s exactly what she needs to take her mind off things. What she doesn’t expect is to spot Jack – a much older, hotter version of him – across the hotel lobby.

Their attraction is still there and it isn’t long before sparks fly, but fifteen years is a long time. They aren’t the same people they were back then and besides, it’s only a week, right?

Is it a second chance …

My Review
Before I start the review I have to mention the book covers for this series as they are stunning. Deadly Treasures is just as lovely and it is a perfect fit for this series. Even though this book is the third in the series it can be read as a standalone. I wouldn't say that there would be any confusion reading this book first. …
