Tailored For Her Prince by Jayne Kingsley

Reviewed by Helen

This is a beautiful story, beautifully written, a fabulous setting and the true dream of most girls while growing up I think, I for one always wanted to be a princess, it is a story that is sure to make the reader smile just what is needed with everything that is going on today, I really did enjoy my escape to Stenaco and getting to know Henrik and Eva, I hope that you will enjoy this one as much as I did.

Eva James is working hard in the family tailoring business when the last person she expected to see walks into the shop, Henrik the man that she lost her heart to in Italy five years ago, the man who up and left her without any word, and now she is going to journey to his homeland of Stenaco her world is turning upside down, will she get some questions answered and will she keep her heart or will Henrik reignite the love that has been quietly resting there?

Henrik is stunned when his brother Felix takes him to the tailor shop and the beautiful Eva is there the woman he never forgot, the woman who he could not love but did with all of his heart and now she is in his royal palace and keeping his emotions under wrap is not easy especially when his family and best friend find Eva so beautiful inside and out like he did.

There is a lot of emotion flowing through the words in this story, secrets and fears that have been kept for a long time and now it is time to set them free and finally find the happiness and love that is deserved by Henrik and the beautiful Eva, I thought MS Kingsley bought these characters to life on the pages and they were all so easy to love and woohoo on this being the first in a series I am looking forward to the royal siblings getting their stories. Thank you MS Kingsley for a beautiful romance that hit the spot so very nicely.

This is such a wonderful story, MS McArthur has taken me on a trip to the jungles of Papua New Guinea where it can be very dangerous out in the wilds for the heroine, the strong, witty and caring Dr. Jacinta McLeod and the man who will steal her heart rugged and very protective Dr. Jonah Armstrong, I do hope that you will pick this one up and enjoy it as much as I did.

Jacinta is working in a busy Sydney hospital, her younger years were not the best but she has worked very hard to get to where she is today and is very strong and capable, when a patient is bought in delirious with what appears to be malaria Jacinta is drawn to him, not only is he good looking but she wants to know more about his work in the jungle of PNG. It is not long before Jacinta decides that a stint working in the missionary hospital with Jonah is what she wants and nothing will stop her.

Jonah grew up as a missionary kid and has lived and worked most of his life among the people of Papua New Guinea, life is not easy, but he loves helping these people and having other doctors come in to help is always welcome, but after meeting the beautiful Jacinta and feeling drawn to her and knowing that a relationship or marriage is never going to be for him after the devastating loss of his sister, he returns to PNG after leaving Sydney and is not happy when Jacinta arrives to work at Pudjip Hospital for three months, protecting her and keeping his heart intact is going to be very hard.

This story has all the feels that MS McArthur is so good at bringing out in her characters, I loved Jacinta, I found her so easy to like her witty banter and humour and caring nature is just what Jonah needed and seeing him melt with love was so good. There is a lot going on in this one, the setting is fabulous and described so well, when Jonah and Jacinta are in danger it was edge of your seat there for a while and the amount of love and caring that comes through brings a lot of joy. There are some fabulous characters in this story I have to mention Mimi I did love her and what a fabulous HEA, they had a rocky road to follow to get there, but get there they did. This is a story that I highly recommend, I truly loved it, thank you MS McArthur.

One Night with Her Millionaire Boss by Kandy Shepherd

Reviewed by Helen

If you have never read a Kandy Shepherd book then you are missing out, she writes such beautiful romantic stories, stories that will have your heart soaring with joy and happiness and this one is just that, I loved getting to know Ned and his beautiful heroine Freya as they fall in love never expecting to find such happiness.

Ned Hudson runs a multi- millionaire dollar rural estate and when at his brother’s wedding he decides that it is time that he settles down, he makes a list of what he will need in a wife after the failures he has been through, but when his mother has a photographer sent to do a photo shoot on the house Ned is struck by such feelings for this beautiful city girl who arrives and she is nothing like what is on his wish list, but he cannot stop thinking about her after the sensual night they spend together.

Freya Delaney jumps at the chance to photograph this beautiful country home especially when she realizes that she knows the owners brother from a past that she normally keeps to herself, it is a long drive out to the country and Freya is not a country girl at heart she loves city life, but meeting Ned has her heart turning and he seems to be able to get her to open up like no other has before and when a stormy night brings them together Freya gets to thinking.

City meets country in this beautiful romance, Freya is not interested in marriage or having a family after the life she had growing up where Ned wants both to carry on the legacy of the Hudson name, and neither expected that a stormy night would bring them together and create a future for them both, a future filled with love and happiness. This really is a beautiful story filled with sensuality, emotion and fun and witty banter another keeper from MS Shepherd, who knows how to make you feel part of a story, thank you I did love this one.

Her struggles and her triumphs, her strengths, and her weaknesses and ultimately her heart. This story had it all: characters, story, and emotions.

And Alex can’t help falling under the spell of Mandy. I thoroughly enjoyed this one from page one Alex and Mandy are both very easy characters to become friends with and I can highly recommend it.

The Life She Wants by Maggie Christensen

I do love visiting Granite Springs, this fabulous small town in New South Wales, there are such lovely people living here and catching up with friends is always fun, this time we see Fran Reilly long -time resident of Granite Springs meet the man who will steal her heart, help her see how good life can be, I hope you will come along for the journey.

Fran has lived here for many years after an accident changed her life and she decided to stay, she has always felt comfortable here, but closely held her secrets, she has a good job as PA at the university, but when she has to dash back to England to care for her very ill mother on her return she decides that making a change in her life is what she needs to do and into her life walks her new boss Owen Larson.

Owen has applied for a new job as the head of Music and Drama at the Granite Springs University, this will be a big change for Owen who has always lived in the city, but he has been divorced for many years and his daughter is an adult in her own relationship so time for a change. He is thrilled to get the position and decides that living on acreage is what he wants, this is done when he gets to house sit for six months he meets lots of new people who become friends and he is very drawn to his new PA, Fran and really wants to get to know her better.

MS Christensen really knows how to bring her characters to life, they are very easy to become friends with to feel their emotions and to be cheering them on, feeling their joy and their ups and downs. Fran and Owen are so very different but very attracted to each other, it is not long before Fran is opening up like she has never done before and to see their love grow had me turning the pages. It was lovely catching up with Jo and Col and Nick and Kay in this visit and I am really looking forward to more stories set in this fabulous town where mature people find their soul mates and the happiness that they all deserve, thank you MS Christensen for another keeper. I do highly recommend this story and the series.

Deadly Falls by Phillipa Nefri Clark

Reviewed by Helen

I have been looking forward to this book since I finished book one and MS Clark has not disappointed me, things are getting a little more sinister in the small town of Kingfisher Falls, when a local is found dead, is it an accident or murder and Charlotte Dean is finding that working in the bookshop is not as peaceful as she thought it would be, as she puts her mind to work trying to find out the truth.

Charlotte is very much enjoying her job in the bookshop with Rosie, things have settled down after the thefts and problems around Christmas, she is still wary of a few of the locals who live there, including the local police officer, so when said police officer Sid Browne arrives urgently and needs her help to check on the health of Octavia Morris long time local, Charlotte is pulled into a web of mystery and lies where she is second guessing the motives of everyone in town.

Charlotte is very good at keeping secrets and with her past history finding out she is being watched puts her on edge and with threatening phones calls this brings out her detective side and she takes a few risks investigating, she has a few suspects and finally when some detectives arrive to investigate and her friend and Rosie’s police officer son Trevor arrives she is forced to give up her evidence to help solve the case.

I really did enjoy this installment in the series, a one sitting read, there is a lot going on and I didn’t guess the guilty party till the very end, MS Clark had me changing my mind a few times, this is a fast paced story, the characters are bought to life on the pages, and there is still a few people that I am sure will cause more problems for Charlotte in the next book. Then there is the relationship between Charlotte and Trevor that is warming up very nicely as Charlotte finally opens up more about her past. Yes this is one that I do highly recommend bring on the next one I say, thank you MS Clark another keeper I can’t wait to be back in beautiful Kingfisher Falls.
