This Old Cafe by Marci Boudreaux

Blurb

Jenna Reid purchased the Stonehill Café to prove to herself that her ex-husband was wrong…that she could make her dreams come true. Three years later, all she has is a crumbling building, no social life, and her bruised pride.

Pride is something Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Maguire lost long ago and isn’t likely to find living in the alley behind the café. He just needs a little time to get on his feet. In the interim, keeping an eye on the overworked café owner gives him a sense of purpose. He has no intentions of making his presence known until he hears the woman screaming late one night.

He rushes into the café, but instead of finding her in dire straits, he finds a broken pipe and Jenna—soaking wet and holding a wrench. With her last bit of hope fading, Jenna accepts Daniel’s help to fix up her building, but it doesn’t take long for them to start trying to fix each other

 

Review

This Old Café by Marci Boudreaux is an awesome sweet romance read. I love Jenna’s and Daniel’s story. I first thought this was going to be another typical sweet romance story, it is, but there is so much more.

I really love how the author built their characters and made them seem real. Both Jenna and Daniel had issues they needed to deal with and  the story did a great job with a twist I didn’t see coming. This was a fun story to read.

I enjoyed every minute of it and now I need to go to from the beginning of this series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.

Thanks to the author Marci Boudreaux for the ARC.

Friendship is a million little moments, but can it survive this
one? Three friends embark on a luxury cruise to celebrate their ten-year
reunion in this heartfelt story of how long-held secrets can catch up with even
the best of friends.
Life was about living, experiencing and emotions. The good and the bad.
You had to laugh to cry. You had to love to hurt. You had to jump to fall or
fly.
Best friends Abbie, Jess and Ricki are setting sail on
a cruise ship, rekindling the excitement of a school excursion they took ten
years earlier to the historic port town of Albany, the oldest city on the
stunning turquoise coastline of Western Australia. But are they truly prepared
for what this voyage will reveal?

Ricki, a dedicated nurse, harbours a dream she hasn’t chased. Is she actually
happy or stuck in a rut?

Jess, a school teacher and single mother to little Ollie, had a tough
upbringing but found her way through with the help of her closest male
friend, Peter. But Peter has bought an engagement ring and is ready to
propose to Ricki . . .

Abbie had it all: a career, a loving boyfriend and a future, but a visit
to the doctor bears scary news. Her world is tumbling down and she feels adrift
at sea.

SECRETS BETWEEN FRIENDS is a poignant novel of romance, family dynamics
and friendship. Through her highly relatable, sympathetic characters, beloved
Australian storyteller Fiona Palmer writes about issues, experiences
and emotions we have all faced while posing the ultimate question: What is
really important in this life?

Forget Me Not by Willow Winters #ReleaseBlitz @givemebooksblog @willowwintersbb

 

 

Title: Forget Me Not
Author: Willow Winters
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 12, 2017
Blurb
I fell in love with a boy a long time ago.I was only a
small girl. Scared and frightened, I was taken from my home and held
against my will. His father hurt me, but he protected
me and kept me safe as best he could.

Until I left him.I ran the first chance I got and even though I knew he wasn’t behind
me, I didn’t stop. The branches lashed out at me, punishing me for leaving him
in the hands of a monster.

I’ve never felt such guilt in my life.

Although I survived, the boy was never found. I prayed for him to
be safe. I dreamed he’d be alright and come back to me. Even as a
young girl I knew I loved him, but I betrayed him.

Twenty years later, all my wishes came true.

But the boy came back a man. With a grip strong enough to keep me
close and a look in his eyes that warned me to never dare leave him
again. I was his to keep after all.

Twenty years after leaving one hell, I entered another. Our tale
was only just getting started.

It’s dark and twisted.

But that doesn’t make it any less of what it is.

A love story. Our love story.
