Cabin Fever by Elizabeth Lynx

✫.•° Synopsis °•.

Have a destination wedding, they said. The mountains are so romantic, they said. They’ve obviously never been a runaway bride.

Olivia Love has it all. She’s rich, spoiled, and about to marry the man of her dreams—until she witnesses her fiancée with someone else, sending her on a little run. Down the side of a mountain. In her wedding dress.

When she finds a cabin in the woods, her relief is short-lived at discovering it to be empty. No phone, no heat, and no way back to her perfect little life. That is until a gun-toting mountain man fills the space and sends her heart rate skyrocketing.

Carter Fitzwilliam likes the simple things in life. His sheep farm, his privacy, and man’s best friend are all he needs until a smart-mouthed beauty in a white dress breaks into his cabin and threatens to complicate the hell out of everything.

She’s lost, looking for help. He’s hiding, only wanting to be left alone. Will she be the one person his heart needs to find?

If you like outrageously funny characters, sexy heroes, and a juicy opposites-attract story than you’ll love the first book in the Lost & Found series, Cabin Fever is the first standalone, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy book in the Lost & Found series by Elizabeth Lynx.

✫.•° My Review °•.

As the synopsis states Olivia Love has chosen to do a runner. And what a day to do it on, her wedding day!! But considering what she has seen could you blame her? I know I can’t!

For Olivia, the biggest downside is that she has to run down a mountain! When Olivia finds a cabin that she thinks is empty she feels relief. That relief is short-lived when she realises there’s no phone, no heating, nothing! And then a gun-toting man turns up, making her feel even more uneasy!

Carter lives in his cabin on his own and enjoys his simple life as a sheep farmer. He doesn’t want anyone else in his life except his dog and his sheep. So when he returns home to find Olivia in his cabin, he’s not sure what to think, except to get rid of her one way or another.

Cabin Fever is a witty, funny, sarcastic romantic story of an accidental meeting of two individuals. It’s not an insta-love story, these two have their own demons to overcome and they need to learn to trust before they can accept any kind of love that is offered.

The pieces of Cabin Fever begin to come together a little like a jigsaw puzzle, as they begin to slot into place it makes the desire to know more becomes stronger, making you want to read just one more chapter… then another and another

The characters are deceptive in that they appear to be so alike, but yet they so different.

I think that Elizabeth has got the mix of romance, wit, sarcasm, and humour spot on. She also includes a few twists and turns to keep the readers on their toes and to keep them guessing at what might happen next.

I couldn’t stop reading this book. I can’t wait for the next installment in the Lost and Found Series.

Dirty Secret by Elizabeth Lynx

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

He came to fix her pipes. She never expected him to steal her heart.

Heidi White was an aspiring baker, tried her best to make others happy, and secretly lusted at the hot guy in her neighborhood. The pipe burst in her basement, so she had to put the baking on hold to find a plumber, fast. When the sexy guy from around the corner showed up to fix her leak, all she could do was stare at the size of his wrench.

Max Brighton was a single dad, business owner, and hadn’t dated in years. His plumbing business began to struggle, and he became desperate to keep things afloat. He believed he found the perfect solution for his problems when the beautiful woman in his neighborhood asked him to fix her pipes. But the job was harder than he expected and he wasn’t talking about her pipes.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

This is a fun, flirty easy read.

We meet Heidi, the daughter of two senators. Heidi is genuine, honest and sometimes naive. She’s not that naive when it comes to her parents though; she knows that they manipulate her to get what they want.

Heidi lives on her own and when her house springs a leak, she calls her parents, they tell her they’ll get someone out to sort it and they do. Max.

Max is a plumber, he goes to Heidi’s to fix her pipes, but soon discovers that her pipes are worse than he originally thought. Once Max realises who Heidi is, he tries to orchestrate a way to not be the one doing the work.

Dirty Secret is a funny, witty, sarcastic, sweet and steamy read.

The characters are well thought out and they all fit the story perfectly. Each one shows both their good and bad traits, which makes each of them realistic and more endearing.

I love how Elizabeth manages to write such emotional but light-hearted stories, that always grab your attention and pull you in from the very beginning. Each page I turned I fell further into Heidi and Max’s world. Elizabeth’s writing style made me feel every bit of part of their lives as the other characters are.

If you want a fun, flirty and entertaining read then I highly recommend Dirty Secret.

Date Night by JF Holland

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Fourteen-years of marriage, two-children – and Dan and Lauren were now on the rocks.

Date Night, his mother-in-law suggested. Only problem was, Dan would have to wing it as he didn’t have a clue how to date his wife?

He wanted to ignite the spark back into their marriage, however, Lauren wasn’t as keen.

Lauren was devastated and confused by the sudden interest Dan was now showing her. Was he playing away from home? That would certainly account for the weird hours he kept ‘at work’.

Was Dan’s guilty conscience the reason he was now trying to get her into bed at every opportunity? Or was he just toying with her?

A new day was coming. Hopefully, Dan was ready for her?

Because, by the end of the week – her marriage would either be back on track or over and heading for the Divorce Courts.

Adult Contemporary Romance, with profanity and adult sex scenes.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

Up to this point, I’ve never attempted to read or listen to any of the books by this author. When the opportunity to listen to date night came up I thought why not.

I downloaded date night from audible.co.uk, with the code given to me by JF Holland for nothing more than an honest review.

I’ve listened to this audiobook twice now, there are 2 reasons for this; firstly, because I listened to this at work and I was afraid I may have missed some parts, and secondly because I enjoyed it so much the first time.

Date Night is a story about reconnecting, not with old friends but with the love of your life, your wife, your best friend and your children.

Dan and Lauren have been best friends forever, they’ve been married for 14 years and have 2 children. Dan has been working longer and longer hours, whilst Lauren and the kids have been living their lives without him. Until one day Dan seems to realise that his wife and kids’ lives are passing him by. He resolves to change that fact. But he has no idea how.

Dan starts by taking some time off work before enlisting some help and advice from his mother in law.

We follow Dan and his journey to try and rekindle is marriage and his family life. It’s not going to be an easy task. As Dan begins do show attention to his family and wife, Lauren begins to get suspicious as to why Dan is suddenly behaving this way.

The characters in Date Night are realistic and lifelike, they are easy to relate to and their situation is something I know does or can happen in real life. I think that JF Holland has created a very realistic story, her characters behave in a way that is relevant to the situations they are faced with also they all seem to develop the more they endure and the further into this story we get.

I felt that the story was well thought out, it is easy to read/listen to and flows well. This book has just about every emotion I can think of in it, so be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster ride, one that you won’t want to get off!

I felt that Date Night is an enjoyable and thought-provoking read.

If you love contemporary romance with some steam thrown in then this is the book for you.

Jersey Girl by J.A. Heron

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

She lost her parents.

She lost her sister.

She lost her home.

She lost her sobriety.

She lost her head.

Now she’s on an uphill battle to find herself, once more.

Will love help, or hinder the fight?

Sometimes, deciding who you are, means deciding who you’ll never be again.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

This is a really good book, it’s the first of JA Heron’s books that I have read and it won’t be the last.

I found myself completely immersed in Kat and Benny’s lives. These 2 characters so very real and as if they were actual friends. Kat and Benny come from very different backgrounds, but that doesn’t stop them from being best friends. Kat has dealt with so much in her life so far. When did things become too much for Kat, Benny has no choice but to step in and help save her best friend.

This book was nothing like what I was expecting. It’s clear to see that the author of put a lot of thought, emotion and research into her writing. She deals with a real but hard-hitting issue but she does it in a way that shows consideration and sensitivity whilst allowing us to understand just what Kat is dealing with.

This book has so much packed into it; a great storyline, love, heartbreak, friendships, loss and sadness. It also shows just how strong some people really are!

I’m really glad I had the chance to read Jersey girl and I’m looking forward to discovering more of JA Heron’s work.

In The Light Of Madness by Hemmie Martin

This review has been a long time coming. Now I have finally gotten around to typing my review up! I also intend to spend a lot of time this year reading the signed paperbacks that I have collected and posting the long overdue reviews of those books. That’s enough waffle about my reading target for the year and onto my review of Hemmie’s book:

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

A murdered boy in a Cambridgeshire graveyard sets in motion an investigation into the local church and school, with suspicions of a cult murmured throughout the community. With their first case, DI Eva Wednesday and DS Jacob Lennox explore the various levels of desperation and malice that can stem from an unhappy or dissatisfied life, where no one takes responsibility for their actions. They quickly find that everyone harbours a secret which, left uncontrolled, can bring forth devastating self-destruction.

✫.•° Book Links °•.✫

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I am lucky enough to have met Hemmie twice now, both times at signings in Peterborough. So I read In the Light of Madness as a signed paperback! This is the second of Hemmie’s books that I’ve read. And I have loved this one as much as the last one.

In the Light of Madness is set in a close-knit village, where a boy is found dead in the graveyard. As in most villages, it sets the villagers talking. They have their own ideas on what caused the death and the events that follow, they range from speculation of a cult to possible people in the village who might have done it. DI Wednesday and DS Lennox are called in to investigate the death and to find out who or what is behind it.

The characters in this book are fantastic, they are extremely well developed and the slightly more personal details that the author has included helps to bring each one of them to life. The characters all interact together well and are incredibly realistic and believable. The characters all have private lives of their own as well as the main ones that we read about.

Hemmie Martin has woven a web of intricate details, lies and deceit that are unwound with every page that is read. The scenes are described in such a way that you can see what is happening in your mind’s eye and that also makes you feel a part of the story. You feel for the characters and become encompassed in their world until the very end.

I loved this story from the very beginning. The more I read and the more details I found out surrounding each incident the more I found I was trying to guess what was happening and who was doing what. I never got it right, I was kept guessing right up until the point that Hemmie wanted us to work it out.

Overall In the Light of Madness was an utter joy to read. If you like crime, thrillers, mystery or contemporary books then I’d highly recommend checking out In the Light of Madness.

Attic Of The Mind by Hemmie Martin

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

The time is right for Lilith Fields to seek revenge. Twenty-five years have passed since the sadistic abuser tortured the patients of the psychiatric ward, and now Lily has decided he must meet his final judgment.

As her plan unfolds she discovers she is not the only one with a dark secret. Now, only time will tell if Lily’s demons will be vanquished, and just how many people are really involved.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

Due to life being an absolute bitch and getting in the way, it has taken me far longer than I would have like to get round to reading Attic Of The Mind, it’s also taken me a lot longer than usual to write this review. It’s a good job I make notes to refer back to as I’m reading 🙂

At the beginning of Attic Of The Mind we are in a psychiatric ward, not just any psychiatric ward it’s a ward run by a cruel and sadistic nurse Walker. Walker is abusing his patients on a regular basis. A new young Doctor; Nathan; joins the ward and he is understandably scared of Walker but Nathan discovers the abuse but decides to do nothing.

However, Nathan has never gotten over the guilt that ignoring the abuse has caused him. Ever since leaving Poplar Ward Nathan has been taunted by visions of a pair of eyes, the years of one of Walker’s victims. And now there are other things appearing leaving reminders of his time at Poplar.

The question is who is leaving him these reminders? Is it the cruel, sadistic Nurse Walker or is it of the cruelly treated patients?

This is the first of Hemmie’s books that I’ve read and it most definitely won’t be the last.

Hemmie’s writing style was fantastic. I was thoroughly engrossed from the beginning, I found I didn’t want to put this book down and tried not to unless it was a necessity.

The storyline was extremely well thought out. To cover a difficult topic like abuse can be hard but it doesn’t seem like it for Hemmie. Hemmie handled the abuse issue with a great level of sensitivity, only the essential details were discussed leaving the rest for the reader’s mind to piece together without having to read all the gruesome details. For me this approach worked fantastically well, it made things seem more disturbing.

The characters are great, I loved and hated them! The fact that we met Walker, Lilith (Lily) and Nathan 25 years ago at the start before catching up with them later means there is a depth to them. It allows us to see how they may or may not have changed in that time.

Hemmie also gives us a glimpse into Walker’s childhood and his private life now which helps with understanding why he’s the way he is. It doesn’t by any stretch justify his behaviour but certainly clarifies things.

This is a book filled with twistedness, cruelty and suspense. Just when you think you know where things are heading they take an unexpected turn and lead you on another path. Attic Of The Mind keeps feeding you breadcrumb after breadcrumb so that you keep following the trail and thinking about what has happened or what may happen.

Overall this is a fantastic 5* read. If you enjoy a good psychological thriller I can not recommend this book enough. Great Job Hemmie!! 🙂
