Again last month I didn’t manage to read all of the books I put on My Reading List For May 2019. So this month I’m going to tackle my reading list differently. As I’m not very good with things being set out/rules. I’ve always had a bit of a rebellious streak which has only become worse the older I get.
So what I have decided to do is just put the books I didn’t manage to read in May on to June’s Reading List.
Not forgetting the Random Book of The Month as I’m looking forward to see what book I pull our of the Jar of Books. So pop by on the 6 June 2019 to see what Random Book of The Month has been selected.
As for the rest of this months books I’m just going to see what books pique my interest along with some of the ARC’s I’ve still got to read.
Needlemouse by Jane O’Connor. Pages: 384. Publication Date: 27 June 2019. ARC
Synopsis: Time to come out of hibernation…
Sylvia Penton has been hibernating for years, it’s no wonder she’s a little prickly…
Sylvia lives alone, dedicating herself to her job at the local university. On weekends, she helps out at a local hedgehog sanctuary because it gives her something to talk about on Mondays – and it makes people think she’s nicer than she is.
Only Sylvia has a secret: she’s been in love with her boss, Professor Lomax, for over a decade now, and she’s sure he’s just waiting for the right time to leave his wife. Meanwhile she stores every crumb of his affection and covertly makes trouble for anyone she feels gets in his way.
But when a bright new PhD candidate catches the Professor’s eye, Sylvia’s dreams of the fairy tale ending she has craved for so long, are soon in tatters, driving her to increasingly desperate measures and an uncertain future.
Sylvia might have been sleep walking through her life but things are about to change now she’s woken up…
The Celtic Connection by Jeanie Martin. Pages: 255. Publication Date: 6 March 2019. ARC
Synopsis: A hot Irish singer, a feisty Canadian woman, and a secluded retreat in the Pacific Northwest. What could go wrong?
Irish singer Michael O’Corrain has been looking forward to this retreat in the beautiful Puget Sound for donkey’s years. Well, since his Kilts tour started, anyway. Touring life can be a grind, and he has a major decision to make. A little peace is just what he needs to get his head on straight. Then he meets the retreat’s coordinator, the enigmatic and exotic Gus, and promptly forgets all about his troubles.
Gus Yu is the queen of research. But in all the retreats she’s been hired to run, she’s never encountered a group like Kilts. Handling all her curve balls with ease and humour, it’s Gus herself who’s kept off-kilter. She begins to suspect that she’s been hired under false pretenses, especially when she meets Michael, with his dimples and sparkling green eyes. Despite her best efforts, it doesn’t take long before the sparks fly.
But when old insecurities rise, on both sides, will they find the courage and strength to stay together?
The Celtic Connection is the fourth book in the Kilts Book series.
Playing With Fire by Katie Price. Pages: 339. Publication Date: 19 October 2017.
Synopsis: Indigo could never have predicted she’d be running her own London events agency aged just twenty-seven.
Organising celebrity parties and glamorous launches is the reward of years of hard work, and when restaurant entrepreneur Connor asks her to plan the opening of his swanky new Shoreditch nightclub, she knows this could be the high-profile event that puts Glamour to Go on the map.
Gorgeous, successful…and attached, Connor is just as spirited as Indigo. She’s determined to resist his advances, but it’s only a matter of time before sparks start to fly. Will she risk putting everything she’s worked so hard for on the line for Connor?
Because as the temperature rises, it will soon become clear that someone is trying to sabotage Indigo’s efforts from the inside.
Things are hotting up, and there’s everything to play for…
