All About Books Days Book Review: I Remember You by Harriet Evans

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

Tess Tennant is moving back to Langford, the place she grew up in. She lived in London for a long time, but after being made redundant she needs a new start. Moving back to Langford means living close to her best friend Adam again. He helps her to find a cottage and soon Tess has a new housemate to share it with. Everything is going really well, but Tess is missing something. There's no spark in her life. Adam is dating the lawyer she's living with and even though the three of them get along just fine Tess doesn't really like it that her two friends are spending so much time together...

For Tess the best part about her work at the local college is going on a class trip to Rome. Her students are all adults and they're well behaved and friendly. Just before she left Tess went out in London with Adam and their day didn't end well. Fortunately Tess doesn't have to be sad for a long time, because she meets a handsome and interesting man in the exciting Italian city. Tess is finally happy again, only her glorious Rome holiday can't last. She needs to talk things through with Adam, but he isn't there to listen. Will they manage to mend their friendship eventually?

I Remember You is a beautiful story about love and friendship. Tess and Adam share a complicated history. They are great friends, but something has happened between them. When Tess moves back to Langford they are really happy to see each other again. The wonderful days of the past are something they love to chat about. I liked reading about their childhood days and about life in Langford. Tess and Adam went their own way after doing their A Levels. That made their relationship interesting and more complicated, which made the story fascinating.

This novel is quite long and I enjoyed every minute of my reading time. I loved finding out more about Rome and about Tess's work. Sometimes I wanted to shake them both and force them to talk to each other. It was fabulous that I felt so involved. I wanted to travel to Langford and see the town, I also kept wishing I could attend one of the classes, just to see what it would be like. I think Harriet Evans makes her characters and settings come to life really well. This amazing romantic story is definitely one of my favorite books by Harriet Evans.


Win a paperback copy of I Remember You together with this beautiful bag made by Bagsy Me First. Good luck!

All About Books Days Book Review & Giveaway: The Rose Master by Valentina Cano

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

Anne is seventeen years old and works at a place she loves. She's a servant and the people she works with are her family. Unfortunately she's being sent somewhere else, to Rosewood Manor, a desolate place. There are no nearby neighbors and there are only two other staff members working in the huge house. She works for a man called August and at first she doesn't even get to see him. The cook can't cook and her cleaning duties are hardly what she'd been used to. She can't roam around as there are places she isn't supposed to go to. It isn't an ideal job, but Anne decides to make the best of it.

The house is strange and something is happening there. August isn't healthy and he has a lot of secrets. When Anne gets to know him he starts to reveal things about his life and his past and bit by bit she discovers what's wrong with Rosewood Manor and with August himself. Will Anne be able to help him?

The Rose Master is a wonderful book about magic and dark secrets. I immediately liked the name of the house and think it's great that Valentina Cano created such a dark and gloomy place that is very lovable at the same time. Anne and August are two great main characters. They have such a good click. I enjoyed reading about Anne's work as well. All of these things together make this a great story. If you enjoy reading books about magic, evil and secrets that's set in the past you will definitely like this book.

All About Books Days Book Review & Giveaway: Every Time a Bell Rings by Carmel Harrington

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

When Belle, a foster child, is being placed with Tess she's finally found a good home. Soon another child, Jim, joins them. Jim and Belle are best friends. They're so close and they love each other very much. When Jim's mother is able to take care of her son again they lose touch. After many years Jim comes back to Dublin to find Belle. They immediately reconnect and their love is deeper than ever.

Jim and Belle want to be foster parents themselves. Their door is always open for children who need them. When Belle has to say goodbye to a child she really loves she's going through a tough time. It's almost Christmas, but she isn't in the mood to celebrate. When she wishes she'd never been born something happens to her, something that will change her entire outlook on life...

Every Time a Bell Rings is beautiful in so many ways. Tess, Jim and Belle are wonderful people and they have such good hearts. I truly admire every loving and caring foster parent. I think it's fantastic that Carmel Harrington has chosen this as a topic for her book. It's definitely a topic that deserves some extra attention.

 I love romantic stories, especially when true love is involved. This Christmas story is so special. I didn't want it to end and loved every word. Every Time a Bell Rings has a gorgeous cover. Both the outside and the inside of the book are filled with love and joy. It's exactly what a good Christmas book should be like. It has the right spirit and I really enjoyed the story. I was singing Christmas songs and I'm already in a Christmas mood just because of this book. I think Carmel Harrington is a great writer and I love her work.

Giveaway

I'm giving away a kindle copy of this great book to one lucky reader of my blog together with a necklace that matches the cover made by The Proud Buffallo. Good luck!
