I’m currently reading…

Fairytale BeginningsFairytale Beginnings by Holly Martin

I’m taking part in Holly’s blog tour for her new book later in the month so getting stuck in to the book in preparation.

The clue’s in the title here; it’s a very light and easy read with some racier scenes 😉 and would suit a Disney rom-com fan.

The blurb

Hopeless romantic Milly Rose has had her fair share of heartbreak. Obsessed with all things Disney, she refuses to give up on finding her Prince Charming – he’s out there somewhere, isn’t he?

When Milly is given a job to investigate the origins of a historical building in the village of Clover’s Rest, she’s not sure what to expect. What she discovers takes her breath away – a beautiful real life Cinderella castle, complete with turrets, a magnificent drawbridge AND a very handsome owner…Cameron Heartstone.

As Milly and Cameron begin to unearth the secrets of Clover Castle, they can’t ignore the intense chemistry building between them. But they’ve both been hurt badly before. Can they take a big leap of faith and find their own happily-ever-after?

I recently finished reading…

The Night CircusThe Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Well I finally finished it…I loved the cover of this book and I loved the idea of this book more than I actually liked it unfortunately, it really didn’t do anything for me other than take me 2.5 weeks to read so am a little gutted! Review to follow soon.

The blurb

Opens at Nightfall

Closes at Dawn

As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears.

Le Cirque des Rêves

The Circus of Dreams.

Now the circus is open.

Now you may enter.

 

What’s up next?

The Lost ChildThe Lost Child by Ann Troup

I’m taking part in a blog tour for The Lost Child later in the month and am looking forward to this mystery.

The blurb

Mandy Miller disappeared from Hallow’s End when she was just 3 years old. She was never found.

Thirty years on, Elaine Ellis is carrying her mother’s ashes back to Hallow’s End to scatter them in the place that she once called home. Elaine has never been there, but it’s the only place Jean talked about while she was growing up – so it seems as good a place as any.

As Elaine settles into her holiday cottage in the peaceful Devonshire village, she gets to know the locals; family she never knew she had, eccentric and old-fashioned gentry, and new friends where she would least expect them. But she is intrigued by the tale of the missing girl that the village still carries at its heart, and which somehow continues to overshadow them all. Little does she know how much more involved in the mystery she will become…

    Ah, I think it might leave The Night Circus fallen between those cracks Lindsay. Way too much going on in my life (work) and I’m only getting a short time to read at the moment. Keep promising myself an afternoon of reading at the weekend but haven’t achieved that yet …

    A shame you didn’t end up liking The Night Circus that much! I have been wanting to read that one for ages… The Lost Child sounds like an interesting read; I’ve added it to my TBR.

    Thanks for visiting my WWW!
