Review of Lisa Hill's debut novel Meet Me at Number Five - Four **


Blurb:

What if finding happiness was a race against time?
Grace Cavendish knows a thing or two about horses – but what she doesn’t know is that her husband, top horse racing trainer Charlie Carrisbrook, is having a literal ‘roll in the hay’ right under her nose. 

When the painful truth is revealed Grace has no choice but to move in with her highly-strung grandmother Clara and cousin Hennie; a single mum who has renounced men (at least that’s what she says!)

Determined to start again, Grace takes a job at the local cafe, Number Five. And whilst serving up coffee and cake is a far cry from the stables, she enjoys it – especially as she gets to work alongside the rather scrumptious Sam Whittaker.

But the past is racing to catch up with Grace. Can her life still be a romp to victory or will a devastating secret stop her dead in her tracks? 







Review:

Fantastic debut novel - and some wonderful characters. I don't know much about horses but learned a lot reading this!

And oh how I cried.....and cried.....and cried! But I laughed too - frequently. It's a warm story about families, love and deceit - and revenge in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

Already looking forward to Lisa's next book - thanks to Choc Lit for finding this new star!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Review of Holiday in the Hamptons by Sarah Morgan - Five **


Blurb:


She’s moved on…
Felicity Knight loves New York. But when she spots her ex-husband in the city, Fliss is desperate to escape!
He’s moved back…
Vet Seth Carlyle is back from California to establish his own practice and settle down. When he learns that his ex Fliss still lives close by, that future is looking a whole lot brighter…
Will a perfect escape bring them back together?
With the help of his adorable dog Lulu, and a sprinkling of beachside magic, Seth is determined to make Fliss see he’s never stopped loving her!





Review: 
Is there no stopping Sarah? This is another wonderful book in the New York series, although we are treated to a beach escape in the Hamptons. And this is what Fliss planned when she saw her ex in NYC. But life has a funny way of twisting and guess who turns up in the Hamptons? Yes, that's right, Seth, her ex.
Fliss, with her twin sister Harriet, runs a petsitting business in NY and she slowly starts doing the same by the beach. But her confusion over her ex makes life very difficult for her. Seth has no confusion and goes all out to regain her trust and love.
I love Sarah's books - they are fun, very easy to read and her characters have substantial depth and baggage.
Looking forward to Harriet's story!
