** BLOG TOUR** My Girlfriend’s Perfect Ex-Boyfriend by Peter Jones
Reviews / 27th October 2017

What the publisher says: Adrian Turner, Mountaineer, Secret Agent, Fireman… Ade would dearly like to be any of these things, though he’d trade them all to win the heart of feisty Public Relations Executive, Paige. Instead, he’s a disillusioned school teacher, on suspension, after an unfortunate incident with a heavy piece of computer equipment. And somebody’s foot. And Paige? Despite being his girlfriend for the past eighteen months, she still seems to have one foot out of the door and hasn’t quite committed to leaving a toothbrush in the bathroom. Of course, it doesn’t help that she’s working with her ex-boyfriend, Sebastian. A man who in almost every way imaginable is better, taller, wealthier, hairier, and infinitely more successful than Ade. Is Paige still in love with Sebastian? Why then did she suggest they get away for a few days? Some place romantic… But when Adrian finds himself in Slovenia – with Sebastian in the room down the hall – he realises there’s serious possibility that he’s in danger of losing his job, his mind, and the woman he loves… What I say: This is a romance novel through and through but with one main difference, we see Adrian’s point…

The trouble is, Mia never wanted a big white wedding, just the happy ever after… What I say: This is the story of the fantastically named Mia Valentina and her boyfriend/fiance Leo.   Mia has returned from Los Angeles where she was living a glamorous life mixing with movie stars as part of her life as a screen writer.  She now finds herself living a solitary existence at home as a novelist, her move meaning she had left behind anyone she could think of as a friend. When her boyfriend proposes (with the full knowledge of her family – eeek!) she is over the moon and yet something seems to be causing her problems when it comes to the organisation of what should be the happiest day of her life.  Throw in her new job shadowing a rock star to learn…

Her final task as its owner is to host her friends’ Christmas wedding on the beach, only she’s feeling anything but festive! Putting her ex, Jed, firmly out of her mind is proving impossible now he’s back working for her biggest rival. What on earth is Jed up to? Telling her he still loves her is all very well, but if her café goes out of business, no-one will buy it. Christmas might be the season of good will towards men – but can Millie trust this particular man with her heart again?   What I say: The third in the Millie Vanilla series this book is comfort reading at it’s very best. Our eponymous heroine has returned to Berecombe after some time travelling the world and hopes to rekindle the relationship she has with Jed, the rich jetsetter who broke her heart when she found out he was acting as a consultant for Blue Elephant, the coffee chain who opened in Berecombe and threatened her own small cafe.

Summer Loves by Georgia Hill
Reviews / 20th August 2017

What the publisher says: Summer lovin’ never happened so fast…but will it last? Part Two What I say: In this book we return to Berecombe to catch up with Millie Vanilla and the events which revolve around her and her cafe.  In the first book Millie fell for the gorgeous Jed only to discover he was actually working for a bakery chain which was opening a new cafe locally and threatening her business.  In this second volume we are introduced to two of Millie’s old school friends who have returned to Berecombe for their own reasons.  Dora and Mike were the romance story of the school when they were all in sixth form and the intervening years have done nothing to diminish their feelings for each other. Millie takes it upon herself to make sure her old friends rekindle their romance, all the while being wooed by Jed who has returned to Berecombe with a very interesting proposal for Millie.  Throw in a bit of OAP shenanigans,  a flood and a new ambition and all in all this is a fantastic read. The characters are once again likeable and believeable and the odd touch of humour really adds to the…
