REVIEW starring... The Gentleman of Holly Street by Lotte R. James


Tis the season for holiday reading and today's Rachel's Random Resources guest is a perfect fit.  It's a Historical Romance, so you're already checking one of my boxes, with a stunning cover (yes, I look like that emoji with the heart eyes!), and a wonderful story that will get you right in the feels.  Don't believe me?  Well then, let's take a closer look...



The Gentleman of Holly Street 
by
Lotte R. James
Harlequin Books


About the book...
Will this Christmas… 
Change their lives again? 

When self-made gentleman Freddie Walton rescued penniless Philomena Nichols at Christmas eight years ago, he never imagined that he would build his empire with her. Yet whilst they have created a life together as friends, Freddie can’t let their special connection become more than that. Not when his dangerous past continues to haunt him… But what happens when Freddie’s feelings for Philomena also refuse to stay hidden? 






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



Once upon a time, someone did him a kindness...now it's his turn to return it tenfold.  The thing is, he doesn't owe it to the man that rescued him from his circumstances.  If it owes it to anyone, it would be himself...because doing so, paying it back so to speak, just speaks to the man that he is, the person he became, and the goodness in him.  That's why when a waif of a young woman was presented with his offer, she was able to accept.  That's why when a dog needed a home, he was welcomed and knew it was forever, loyalty and dedication being inbred aside.  That's why when trouble came knocking there were those that would gladly lay down their own lives to save his.  He was just that extra goodness that the world needed...even if he never believed it himself.

Getting to know Freddie was wonderful, as was the introduction to Philomena.  One could guess where things might lead, and yet they weren't intended to from the start.  No, this wasn't about convenience and what's on offer, but about safety, friendship, and trust.  It was so heartwarming to see them become what the other needed at the time, and grow together towards a future that could be whatever they wished, with whomever they wished, if only they reached for it.  Grant it, the reaching wasn't so easy, and in fact happens more by outside forces pushing in than a gradual release of the heart, but come it does and the ending beauty was something to behold.  They were each their own person, but together...it was truly something to behold.

A great read for Historical Romance fans that love a lot of heart in their reads, and a little danger...because yes, there is danger!  Oh and watch for Hawk!  He's such a good boy!

About the author...



Lotte James trained as an actor and theatre director, but spent most of her life working day jobs crunching numbers whilst dreaming up stories of love and adventure. She’s thrilled to finally be writing those stories, and when she's not scribbling on tiny pieces of paper, she can usually be found wandering the countryside for inspiration, or nestling with coffee and a book.

REVIEW featuring... Let's Not Be Friends by Phoebe MacLeod



Ever have a book get you so involved in the lives of the characters that you feel like one of the gang?  I mean, when they hurt, you hurt.  When they are traumatized, you are on their behalf.  When someone does them wrong, you are equally outraged and there for the ride or die.  Yep. I though you might have, and this book is one to add to that list!  Ladies and gents, today's Rachel's Random Resources title on deck is...


Let’s Not Be Friends
by
Phoebe MacLeod
Boldwood Books


About the book... 
Perfect for fans of Jo Watson, Mhairi McFarlane and Portia MacIntosh. 

City girl Sophie has married the prince (or landed gentry - close enough), moved to his pile (which is more accurate a description than she’d anticipated) and is set to live happily ever after - until she finds the other half of her perfect life in the stables with the stable girl, and they’re definitely not grooming the horses. 

Shocked and appalled, Sophie’s no happier to learn that she’s supposed to 'just get on with it'. After all, according to her mother-in-law, she got the title . . . they even overlooked her family’s ‘new money’ status. 

What a lovely family she’s married into! But what’s a girl to do when she’s still in love? Make it work or leg it as fast as she can? Either way, the mother-in-law will not be coming to tea! 






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




What readers are saying about Phoebe MacLeod: 

'A perfect love story' 

'Humorous, light and romantic!' 

'I absolutely loved it. Heart-warming, just perfect!' 

'I loved every minute reading this book, light hearted and fun, finished in a day!' 

'I smiled so much' 

'What a wonderful book' 

'Fantastic' 



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




Honestly, I had a wonderful time with this one!
Things started off simple enough...a few years of dating that led up to a wedding, a big move, and all the extra things life can throw your way.  Flash forward to four years into the marriage, and when she needed the Aga fixed not only was it a no go, but she got a lot more than she bargained for when tracking down her husband.  I'll let you discover that "splendid" moment on your own.  I felt for Sophie and was outraged just as much as she....in fact, I shared Di's reactions to what happened because WHAT A PUTZ!  Sophie deserved so much better than James, but that's the benefit of hindsight; it's quite often 20/20.  Love can color the vision of anyone, but when the true colors come out, it's often less a Picasso and more a "how did I ever view this as art".  I had to respect her though...she doesn't overreact, despite what he and his mother say/do, and finds her way through things on her own.  Yes, she has a little help from friends, and family, but it's HELP UP, not a HAND OUT.  They have faith in her and her decisions, and are willing to support her whatever she chooses.  Does she choose well?  I think so...certainly a "high road" situation, and I love how she always tries to see the good in people, and the situation, but she's not a pushover.  It's a fine balancing act that many struggle with (self included)...but we can all learn a thing or two from Sophie, and hopefully we'll have many HEAs on our own terms too!

All in all, a great read to get lost between the epages of with characters you won't forget, moments you'll laugh or even shout about, and an ending that fits perfectly.

Lucky in life but unlucky in love, Lucy Greenfield owns a successful carriage business along with her best friend Max, and they have never been busier since their shire horses gained fame from their roles in the hit movie A Little in Love.

Relationships are strained as secrets unravel, and Lucy needs to solve the riddle of words to best describe how she feels… For her best friend.

REVIEW starring... The Great Christmas Cook-Off by Helen Buckley


Happy day after Thanksgiving!  I hope you're stuffed with good food, good feelings...and ready for the sprint to the next holiday!  Honestly, it feels like that sometimes, doesn't it?  Never enough time to celebrate the one at hand before the next one is breaking down out door.  Ce la vie!  What's passed is past, and the future holds a lot more HOLIDAY READING, starting with today's Rachel's Random Resources guest in the review spotlight...


The Great Christmas Cook Off
by
Helen Buckley
Choc Lit


About the book...
It’s the festive showdown to end all festive showdowns …

“Queen of Chocolate” Beatrice Wodehouse, known for her decadent desserts, is ready to go head to head with her social media nemesis, clean lean baking machine Charlie Simmonds, in the Great Christmas Cook Off TV show.

Beatrice is fed up of Charlie’s sanctimonious attitude and is ready to show him that food is there to be enjoyed. Surely she’ll blow his keto, low sugar, low-carb mince pies out of the water with her chocolatey creations?

Except filming for the Cook Off turns out to be anything but sugar, spice and all things nice when the contestants realise there’s a festive saboteur in their midst – leading to melted ice cream, trifle mishaps and private stories leaked to the press.

As the countdown to the final commences, suspicions run high and sparks are bound to fly – and not just from the flaming Christmas puddings!

Part of the Spotlight series but it can be read as a standalone story.



AMAZON  UK  |  US



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


If you have a sweet tooth, this one might do you in!
If you love Romantic Comedies, another checkmark in the plus boxes!
If you love a Contemporary Romance filled with festive cheer, friendly (mostly) competition, enemies-to-lovers trope-age, and a twisty plot you'll be hard fast to figure out before the characters do...this one is for you!

Most people will admit to some form of love for reality shows, and this one takes the cake...literally.  We've got a competition between well-known bakers, each a king or queen in their own right, taking place over the holidays with someone potentially taking the sweetness out of their efforts!  Yes, there might be a saboteur (or maybe not), and despite the best efforts of Beatrice and Charlie to despise each other fully (which, yeah, they are rather failing at!), any alliance they may have formed, any truce called in the spirit of the season, is about to be flambéed like last year's pudding.  What can you do when the evidence of what might be unfolding seems to be staring you in the face?  Or is it?  I TOLD you this plot is slippery!  Good thing the recipes made sound DELICIOUS, the tension between our leading characters to DELECTABLE, and the ending the perfect blend of SWEET and yet GOOD FOR YOU.

Don't think it can be done?  Give it a read, and tell me what YOU think!  Get your holiday reading on this "Black Friday" and snag a copy to go with those leftovers you're eyeing up!

SPOTLIGHT + GIVEAWAY starring...An Ear For Trouble by K. T. Lee


Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends, far and wide. Today's a day for thanks, for gathering, for remembering, and for eating just a little too much, but with good intentions. 😉 One thing I'm grateful for is great reading, and today's title in the spotlight on tour with Rachel's Random Resources might just be the right fit for you! So loosen your belt, get comfy, and grab your wish list as we take a closer look at today's featured title...



An Ear for Trouble
by
K.T. Lee


About the book...

Elise Butler is a wildlife biologist who enjoys her stable (if somewhat predictable) job in finance at the World Wildlife Trust. However, when the veterinarian at Riverbend Animal Conservation Center goes missing, Elise offers to help the unlucky wildlife Conservation Center get back on its feet. Not only will the job in Riverbend, Indiana let her get back to her roots of working with animals, but it’s also a short drive from her sister’s workplace at Riverbend K-9 Academy, a training center for some of the FBI’s best explosive detection dogs.

FBI Special Agent Finn Cooper and his canine partner, Sedona, are chasing a well-funded animal trafficking ring. After an injury sidelines Finn from official FBI undercover work, he goes to work at Riverbend K-9 Academy to stay busy while he recovers…and to investigate his only remaining lead in the animal trafficking case.

Just as Elise begins to settle into life in Riverbend, her sister asks her to help the K-9 Academy by fostering one of their puppies. Finn is eager to keep Elise focused on training Zeke, the enthusiastic German shepherd puppy earmarked to become Riverbend’s first wildlife detection K-9, and keep her well away from his quiet animal trafficking investigation. Zeke quickly proves himself an expert both at chewing shoes and sniffing out clouded leopards. When Zeke starts finding scents where they don’t belong, Elise and Finn begin to realize that the Conservation Center may be more criminal than unlucky. And if Elise doesn’t keep her nose out of it, she might be the next target.

An Ear for Trouble is Book 2 in the Riverbend K-9 Series. All books in the Riverbend K-9 Series may be enjoyed as standalone novels or as a series.

REVIEW + GIVEAWAY starring... Tell the Truth, Dragon! by Bianca Schulze



Thanksgiving is almost here, and to get you in the mood for all that food, and the togetherness, patience, and understanding that goes along with it (don't shake your head no, you know I'm right), I've got a special Awareness Tour for you!  It's the latest from author Bianca Schulze, the mind behind The Children's Book Review site and tours, as well as an accomplished writer!  Today's celebration is all about the latest Dragon release and let me tell you, it's TASTY, it's TEMPTING, and it's got morals to spare whilst entertaining you toot suite!  So gather round, and let's share in a tale that will have your taste buds watering, and your fingers uncrossing themselves from behind your back...

Make room on your shelves because the Dragon is BACK!
When last we left our friend, Dragon, we were learning a valuable lesson about being ourselves.  This time around, it all hovers around the age old advice of "honesty is the best policy"...in other words, tell the truth.  It's not an easy thing sometimes, especially if we've done something a wee tad dishonest, like say, oh, I don't know, blame the cat for something we did (*looks pointedly at Dragon*), but by book's end, we, and Dragon, learn our valuable lesson, feelings are no longer hurt, forgiveness is given, and we all get to eat cake!  (You'll see...)

With charming illustrations to once again drive home the valuable pearls of wisdom imparted whilst still having an outrageous amount of interactive fun, the latest addition to the Dragon series is sure to be a fast favorite among the kiddos as well as those a bit older that might be helping with the story time read.  The pages are colorful and eye catching, the text fun, witty, and begging to be acted out, or responded to.  Readers will laugh and whirl with the best of them as the confectionary masterpieces are made, hidden (not so well), bitten (just a wee bit off the top), rescued, and served.  Just who gets the first slice?  Who indeed!  It' a very special someone, and I think you'll ADORE the surprise of it all.

REVIEW + GIVEAWAY featuring... Chupacarter by George Lopez

Today's second tour of choice, has us shining the book review spotlight on a new Children's Fiction title by George Lopez.  Yes, that George Lopez, and let me tell you, this book was REALLY GOOD!  Hosted by Rockstar Book Tours, make room on your TBR for a hairy tale of friendship you just don't see every day. 


Title: CHUPACARTER

Author: George Lopez, Ryan Calejo, & Santy Gutiérrez (Illustrations)

Pub. Date: August 30, 2022

Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers

Find it: GoodreadsAmazonKindle, Audible, B&NiBooksKoboTBD, Bookshop.org


About the book...

With his signature laugh-out-loud humor, world-famous comedian George Lopez launches a fantastical middle grade series inspired by his own colorful childhood and Latinx folklore.

In this illustrated contemporary fantasy, twelve-year-old Jorge is lonely and resentful after being sent to live with his grandparents. His first day at his new school doesn’t go well after catching the attention of his belligerent principal and the school bullies, so Jorge might be a little desperate for a friend.
 
But the only kid who shares his interest in junk food and games turns out to be a young chupacabra—a legendary monster whose kind is known for being bloodthirsty livestock killers. The truth is, Carter is anything but savage—he's kind, a good listener, and has great taste in sneakers. Being friends with a mythical creature should be amazing, but when local cattle turn up dead and his principal suspects the truth, Jorge is torn. Should he trust that his friend is innocent and protect him from exposure, or reveal his dangerous existence and change the world forever?


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

Reviews:

“ChupaCarter is an uproariously good time, full of humor, heart, and unexpected friendships.” 
—Zoraida Córdova, award-winning author of Valentina Salazar Is Not a Monster Hunter

"A narrative punctuated with wisecracks and flavored with Spanish phrases and slang...Frights and fun in equal measure."—Kirkus Reviews

"Gutierrez’s lively b&w illustrations expertly render Jorge and Carter’s occasionally over-the-top, adrenaline-filled adventures. Actor/comedian Lopez and Calejo offer a rollicking tale brimming with Latinx folklore and culture about finding one’s home in the unlikeliest of places that never takes itself too seriously."—Publishers Weekly

"Some good and gross humor...in this fantasy-infused tale."—School Library Journal

 






This was an unexpected delight!
I mean, you never go into a  book with lowered expectations, mind you, but I didn't expect it to be this funny, this interesting, this educational, and this full of feelings as the story I experienced between the pages.  Or leading lad was just a boy feeling left out and left behind.  His mother meant well, but instead of feeling taken care of, he felt let go...and his actions thereafter spoke volumes.  He's not a bad kid, and he has very good intentions, but he often goes about it in the wrong way.  Like when he tries to help the kid being bullied...verbally mouthing off, probably not your best line of defense; getting a teacher or other staff member so it's not your word against theirs, probably a little better.  See?  He meant well, but being the new kid, and having the principal he had, he had a better chance of dodging his grandmothers shoe the next time she was doling out corrections, than coming out on top of this situation.  But that's only the beginning...

He makes a few new friends, two of which are very human, while another is decidedly less.  I love how Carter was shown as more than a monstruso.  We got to see the very "human" side of him and discover that sometimes the monster isn't the one who looks like one, but the one that ACTS like one.  Through all their ups and downs, revelations and running away tactics, we're reminded in a BIG way that friendship doesn't come in one shape, size, or color...it's for one and all.  The only limits on it are the ones we put on it.  Be strong, be yourself, and stand up for what you believe in...whether that be humane treatment of animals, the legitimacy of the Star Trek convention, or the new best friend you made that just so happens to have an interesting dietary restriction. 

A grand adventure filled with culture, and color, that will appeal to the middle grade set and behind!  The story is great, but the included graphics really bring the moments to life.  Through those images, you get a folly rounded picture of everyone involved, and the amount of heart between the pages.
