RRR presents... SOMEONE ELSE'S HONEYMOON by Phoebe MacLeod - REVIEW!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


Today, we're back with Rachel's Random Resources and another tour starring a book that will melt any Rom Com lover's heart. It's funny, it's sweet, it gives you a story that is just far enough out there to remove you from your every day, but not so far as to be completely unbelievable. What? A girl can dream, right? Anywho, let's get between the pages of today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...


Someone Else’s Honeymoon
by
Phoebe MacLeod
Boldwood Books


About the book...
When Charley finds herself suddenly single on Christmas Day it feels like her world has fallen apart.

Forced to move back in with her parents, she embarks on a journey of re-invention. When she meets Ed, who is on honeymoon alone after being jilted at the altar by a bride he's never met, it looks like her life may be taking a turn for the better.

Fate, however, has other ideas, and she and Ed are forced apart.

Will she find her way back to him, or are they just not meant to be?









~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Go ahead.
Admit it.
You watch reality tv...and you're not ashamed of it.

Don't worry, we all do now and then.  Personally, I like the shows that are talent based, makeovers, or saying yes to a certain dress, but that's as far as my love affair with them go.  Still, whether you watch them or not, you know you've thought about it at some point...what happens behind the camera?  What moments are left on the cutting room floor?  What type of people sign up to DO these types of shows, and why?  Yeah, there's a motherload of questions that come up with that topic, but now we get the chance to find out in the most amazing way possible!

Charley's character had been hurt by an earth-loving a**hole that couldn't keep it in his pants despite the fact they had been together for TEN YEARS!  He had the audacity to suggest a "break" on Christmas of all days, and while he used their gift swap spat as a catalyst (but seriously WHO would give someone a toothbrush as a present?!), he had already been on Santa's naughty list well before the holiday.  I felt for Charley, but I also loved how she handled things because that confrontation was PRICELESS, and SO deserved!  Life changed on a dime for her, but as they say, when a door closes, a window opens, and her window led to a trip to Antigua (OMG!) where she meets Ed...and takes a spot on his honeymoon in lieu of his wife.  *gasp*  Now, before you get started, it's not what you're thinking, though it sounds sordid, and things development naturally between them as they spend more and more time together, but all is not smooth sailing, or windsurfing, in paradise!  There are more obstacles to overcome just like any other potential couple, between over eager cameramen, spontaneous trips out of pocket, and cell phone mishaps that start the ball rolling on six months of akwardness...to say the very least.  In the end, all's well that ends well, but if you want to know if they reach their very own HEA...you'll have to read it to find out!

Come for the curious title, but stay for the AMAZING story filled with characters and situations you won't want to miss.  Your heart will be warmed (all the lovely moments!), and your stomach muscles tested (from laughing!), but you'll be one satisfied reader.

COVER REVEAL: Strangers in the Night by Heather Webb!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we've got a very special post featuring an author you know and a book that's COMING MARCH 2023 from William Morrow.  It's a work of Historical Fiction that's takes us to the golden age of Hollywood to share "...most riveting love story of the twentieth century.".  Sound tantalizing enough?  Well then, KEEP READING...but first KEEP SCROLLING to unveil the cover that will grace this story...










Strangers in the Night:
A Novel of Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner
by
Heather Webb
William Morrow


About the book...

It was the tumultuous romance that scandalized the world: Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner fought, loved, and lived life to the hilt. Now their unbridled story is brought vividly to life by Heather Webb, the bestselling author of Meet Me in Monaco and The Next Ship Home.


In the golden age of Hollywood, two of the brightest stars would define—and defy—an era…

She was the small-town southern beauty transformed into a Hollywood love goddess. He was the legendary crooner whose voice transfixed the world. They were Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra. Separately they were irresistible; together they were an explosive combination.

Ava’s star is rising just as Frank’s career—and public image as a family man—is taking a hit. Gone are the days of the screaming bobbysoxers and chart-topping hits. Ava, however, finds herself gracing the front page of every tabloid in America. Jealousy and cheating abound, and when the two succumb to their temperaments and their vices, their happiness is threatened at every turn.

As the pair ride the rollercoaster of success and failure, passion and anger, they both wonder if the next turn will be the end of their careers, and most devastating of all—the end of all they’ve shared.

A captivating novel with a star-studded cast spanning continents and decades, Strangers in the Night brings to life the most riveting love story of the twentieth century.

Back to School with LITTLE TORTOISE and Random House Studio!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


Time to ring the old school bell, at least in my neck of the woods, as we send kids back to the hallowed halls of learning. Yep. That's right! Summer is officially over and school is back in session. Some are more ready for it than others, as is always the case, but it is inevitable. My favorite part, aside from all the learning ops, and reading, was back to school shopping! Oh wait, you think I mean the clothes? Nope. In fact, many of the schools I attended had uniforms and not in the vague-stricter-dress-code-policies a lot of schools have today. I mean ACTUAL uniforms, but, I digress....but shopping love was for the SCHOOL SUPPLIES! Getting a new pack of your favorite pens! Selecting just the right backpack! Nabbing the last plum colored Five-Star binder that was the velcro closure NOT the zipper because you really liked it better! Those were the days...of course, now I use the season as an excuse for new office supplies, but what can you do! 😁 Anywho...

Today's featured title was specially selected for the day, and if you've got any kiddos, know some kiddos, or even some non-kiddos hurrying back to class, it might be just the perfect addition to your back to school extracurricular reading....

Random House Studio


Little Tortoise is ready and raring to go! She's had the first day of school marked on her calendar for AGES and she is totally prepared. After checking off her to do list, she packs up and heads out, ready to race to the schoolhouse. Thing is...despite her extra energy, and preparation, she's still not maybe as fast as some of the other students...and THAT'S OKAY! That's really the point of the story, in fact. She doesn't let the others speediness, or alternative movement options, dampen her spirits. She is determined to get there on time, in her own time, and not be late. When things send her for a spin just as the schoolhouse is in sight, it seems her journey is at an end, and frustration starts to get the better of her...and yet, there is one that happens to be as not fast or even more not as fast than she that helps her not only be right side up once again, but helps her understand that it's all in the TRYING, the NEVER GIVE UP attitude, and the simply doing better today than yesterday. Together, they make quite a pair AND a grand entrance...just in the nick of time.

The story is delightful, the illustrations marvelous, and the timing of the book PERFECT! From her racing stripes to her racing helmet, you can't help but love Little Tortoise...and even though so many of her classmates make the trip faster than she, instead of focusing on why most didn't lend a hand (or faster means of transport), I choose to see that they understood her determination to do this on her own four feet. I loved the teacher's arrival...that was a splendid choice and a great way to prove the point on trying. You'll laugh at the animal antics, giggle as Little Tortoise gets stuck between the pages on her way through, and enjoy the surprise twist at the end just when you thought the class was fully in session!

Rockstar Book Tours presents... GOBLIN MARKET by Diane Zahler - REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!

HI there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

TODAY, I am thrilled to be hosting a spot on the Blog Tour featuring GOBLIN MARKET by Diane Zahler, hosted by Rockstar Book Tours. Check out my REVIEW post below and make sure to enter the giveaway before you head off into the great big blogosphere for more bookish adventures!


Title: GOBLIN MARKET

Author: Diane Zahler

Pub. Date: August 16, 2022

Publisher: Holiday House

Formats: Hardcover, eBook

Pages: 256

Find it: GoodreadsAmazon, Kindle, B&NiBooks, KoboTBD, Bookshop.org

One sister must save the other from a goblin prince in this rich, spooky, and delightfully dark fantasy!

"TERRIFICALLY TIMELESS. . . SPLENDID."—Shelf Awareness

Lizzie and Minka are sisters, but they’re nothing alike: Minka is outgoing and cheerful, while Lizzie is shy and sensitive. Nothing much ever happens in their sleepy village—there are fields to tend, clothes to mend, and weekly trips to the market, predictable as the turning of the seasons. Lizzie likes it that way. It’s safe. It’s comfortable. She hopes nothing will ever change. 

But one day, Minka meets a boy. 
A boy who gives her a plum to eat. 

He is charming. He is handsome. He tells her that she’s special. He tells her no one understands her like he does—not her parents, not her friends, not even Lizzie. He tells her she should come away with him, into the darkness, into the forest. . . .

Minka has been bewitched and ensnared by a zdusze—a goblin. His plum was poison, his words are poison, and strange things begin to happen. Trees bleed, winds howl, a terrible sickness descends on Minka, and deep in the woods, in a place beyond sunshine, beyond reality, a wedding table has been laid. . . .

To save her sister, Lizzie will have to find courage she never knew she had—courage to confront the impossible—and enter into a world of dreams, danger, and death.

Rich world-building inspired by both Polish folklore and the poetry of Christina Rossetti combines with a tender sister story in this thrilling novel from Diane Zahler.

"Lush. . . Dreamy. . . Breath-quickening."—The Horn Book
"Resonates with emotion."—BCCB
"Believably wrought."—Publishers Weekly
"Will entice readers looking for some chills."—Kirkus Reviews

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


From cover to cover, this one will have you hooked!

Once upon a time, there were two sisters.  As close as close can be, they shared everything with one another, until the day came that their most hidden heart's desires may not have truly been shared.  That one little spark, that one little wedge was enough for evil to take root, driving the sisters away from one another.  The one, teetered on the doorstep of death's door...the other, would find her footing, find her voice, find her inner well of strength to fight for the sister she loves at all costs.  Question is though...will the cost be too high?

I loved the spooky, slightly scary atmosphere of this story.  It's perfect for the upcoming reading season, but also a folktale-esque break from fairytale retellings.  Don't get me wrong, I love those as well, but tales passed down through the generations meant to teach lessons and instill a little fear in the heart's of its listeners hold a special kind of magic all their own...but not like the fruit magic in this story!  The message of alone we are but one, but we're always better together was touching, as was the lengths theses sisters were willing to go to save each other, when push came to shove.  Minka may have been blinded by her dreams being handed to her on a platter, but Lizzie was never going to leave her to the wolves...nor was Jakob, for that matter.

All in all, it's a story with vital lessons for all ages that echoes throughout the generations.  If something seems too good to be true, it probably is!  Never trust a cute boy with a line and out of season fruit!  Always share your hopes and dreams because they are worthy of recognition and you never know just who is going to be the one to help you get there!  I also liked, what I perceived as, the nod to autism or those on the spectrum.  It was hard to see Lizzie fight through those uncomfortable situations, but she illustrated well just how far she could go, when the price was too high to sit on the sidelines.  I could keep going, but I want you to discover the rest of the magic, both dark and light, on your own.  Quick word of advice though?  Read it with the lights on...

RRR presents... THE HIGHLAND HENS by Judy Leigh - REVIEW!

HI there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


Today, we're joining a Rachel's Random Resources tour already in progress featuring the latest from author Judy Leigh.  I've read a few of her works previously, and  I have to say, she definitely has a way with words.  She does a wonderful job of giving us leading ladies from a different generation that take the stage in their own lives by storm.  Whether it be another chance at love or the simple beauty of being understood and cared for, your heart is committed to the story from the first page.  Today's featured title is no different, and without further adieu, I give you today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...


The Highland Hens
by
Judy Leigh
Boldwood Books


About the book...
In the imposing Glen Carrick House overlooking Scotland’s famous Loch Ness, lives eighty-eight-year-old Mimi McKinlay, cared for by her three adult sons. Hamish has inherited his mother’s musical talents, Fin is the responsible brother, and Angus has the complicated and brooding personality to match his dashing good looks.

But what all the brothers share is a concern that their beloved mother is living in her memories of her days on stage, while letting her present days pass her by.

Jess Oliver is at a turning point. Amicably divorced after years of being married, this trip to the Highlands is a first taste of independence. It isn’t long before the beauty and hospitality of Scotland captures her heart.

When Mimi and Jess’s paths cross, a friendship is formed that will change both women’s lives. And as together they find ways to look forward instead of to the past, long forgotten dreams are within reach, and every new day is fresh with possibilities.

Take a trip to the Highlands with Judy Leigh for an unforgettable story of glorious pasts and fabulous futures, of love, friendship, family and fun. The perfect feel-good novel for all fans of Dawn French, Dee Macdonald and Cathy Hopkins.







~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Oh this book could just as easily have been titled The Life, Times, and Adventures of Mimi Solitaire, and no one would have blinked an eye.  She is the star of the show in so many ways.  Mimi may be up there in years, and experiences, but she lives loudly, and without shame, as we all should!  She is her own person, and yes, she may tire more easily now, forget the usual pleasantries of today, and take a few chances others would turn their nose up at, but she is genuine, she is true to herself, and she is a doll!  I couldn't imagine having not met this vibrant woman, so much so that as I type this now, I'm tearing up!  Yes, in truth.  There are many reasons, what with everything that transpires between the epages, but the biggest one is that fictional or not, you can't help but care for this remarkable character...and the same goes for her "entourage".

We have her sons that care for her oh so deeply, but not by placating her and trying to change her into someone she's not, but by cherishing her and how her strength and love molded them into the men they are today.  Which was my favorite?  Well, they all had their positives, and while my heart didn't match with any of them in particular, I was beyond thrilled with Jess' match.  Oh yes, I haven't mentioned Jess yet.  What begins as a place to call home while her own home is under renovation turns into a life changing experience that opens hearts, ignited flames, and brings her into a family fold she never anticipated.  Jess, herself, is also a remarkable woman, having had her own experiences in life and love and loss...and while she is the catalyst for many of the positive changes occurring in the McKinlay household, she's in for a few surprises of her own.  Then there's Isabella, Mimi's long time friend til the end and partner in crime, the memories of those she's loved before, and the hope she holds on to for a love of her own still to come.

It's a heartwarming novel from start to finish, and one I am truly grateful to have found.  Go ahead, take a chance on these grand dames and new friends, and you'll feel like one of the hens in no time flat.  A great recommendation for Women's Fiction and Contemporary Fiction fans of all ages.

RRR presents... CONFETTI AT THE HUMMINGBIRD HOTEL by Daisy James - REVIEW!

Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.


For today's second post, we've got another Rachel's Random Resources tour featuring the latest release from author Daisy James as she welcomes us back to the Hummingbird Hotel. There is much to anticipate, and even more to worry over, as Abbie sets out to prove she's got what it takes to keep things running smoothly. Ready or not, fair readers, let's get between the epages of today's blog tour guest and ebook of choice...


Confetti at the Hummingbird Hotel
by
Daisy James


About the book...
Welcome back to the Hummingbird Hotel!

When Abbie Coleman is asked to organise a Dance & Desserts retreat for a group of exhausted schoolteachers, she decides to pull out all the stops. With line dancing, flamenco and the Charleston on the agenda, along with a whole host of delicious themed desserts, it’s her chance to prove to everyone that she has – at last – gained the skills needed to be an accomplished hotelier. This time she’s determined there will be no “unfortunate incidents” that make the Hummingbird Hotel look like Corfu’s Comedy Central.

With her big fat Greek wedding to the gorgeous Nikos Angelopoulos only three weeks away, will she finally be able to deliver a retreat without the habitual chaos and calamity the hotel has become famous for? Can she turn a clunky chicken dance into a classy Charleston and a boogie-woogie into a beautiful ballet? Or will she be boot scootin’ it back to London and life as a floundering florist?

Let Daisy James whisk you away to gorgeous Corfu with a feel-good holiday read filled with sun, sea and a sprinkle of romance. Perfect for fans of Mandy Baggot, Sue Roberts & Sandy Barker



AMAZON  UK  |  US




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



You've got to love a book that combines the old with the new.  In this installment, we have characters from previous installments as well as the new focus on the "dance escape" and the upcoming nuptials...and what better event to anticipate at a gorgeous venue!  Abbie's determination is noteworthy, her romance with Nikos heartwarming, and her utter love for those in the her care, memorable.  It's great when you find a series that CAN be read apart, and yet you can't quite imagine the stories residing all by their lonesome.  They need each other, as much as the characters in this story need one another, and though charming solo, they are bookishly wonderful when together.

To be sure, chaos and calamity do manage to find her...but Abbie is made of stronger stuff.  It'll take a lot more than...well, what happens to knock her for a total loop, and when all is said and done, you'll be glad you were there for the ride.  SO laugh with the antics, sigh with the heart vibes, and soar with the ending that fits the story to a "T".  Whether you've been a fan for a while, or are just getting started, this is one series you should take a chance on as we bid summer days adieu.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




About the author...


Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations - the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence - so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.

When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea - china plates and teacups are a must.

Daisy would love to hear from readers via her Facebook page or you can follow her on Twitter @daisyjamesbooks, or on Instagram @daisyjamesstories.
