Review: Welcome to the Cornish Country Hospital by Jo Bartlett @J_B_Writer @BoldwoodBooks @rararesources #blogtour #publicationday #BoldwoodBloggers #womensfiction #romance #RespectRomFic November 22, 2023 But I think my personal favourite (so far…) might just have been her first book with One More Chapter, The Spa Break – a wonderful fun-filled story of female friendship, and of sheer bravery as each woman took the opportunities and chances they were offered, gained a different perspective on their lives, and realised what they had been missing (you’ll find my full review here– and yes, of course it was one of my 2022 Books of the Year!). Could there be any better way of spending a wet Saturday afternoon than curling up with her latest? I liked that the author gave each of these women her own story, though Jane’s arc was the most dramatic, and I appreciated that she was able to truly find herself on her voyage. I also liked the way the friendship between all three women was depicted. Too often women in novels are catty to each other. These women tease each other but are also supportive, which is how the best friendships should be. The Cruise' is superbly written but then I have come to expect nothing less from Caroline James. Caroline has an easy going writing style that is easy to get used to and easy to get along with. In fact, reading one of Caroline's books often feels more like a chat between friends rather than reading a book. I hope that makes sense. I love the way in which Caroline so vividly and so realistically describes her characters as she makes them seem just as real as you and I. As I mentioned before, I felt as though the characters had become friends of mine rather than fictional people in a book. I love the positive message that Caroline sends out through the story, which is that growing old doesn't mean that you have to stop having fun. I love the way in which Caroline makes the reader feel as though they are part of the story and at the heart of the action. That's how I felt anyway.

Review: The Tuscan Orphan by Siobhan Daiko @siobhandaiko @BoldwoodBooks @rararesources #blogtour #newrelease #BoldwoodBloggers #histfic #romance #WW2 #RespectRomFic #TheTuscanOrphan The Cruise” by Caroline James. What can I say other than I really enjoyed it and read in one day. Who doesn’t want to escape on a cruise with a couple of old friends. Review: Murder at the Matterhorn by T A Williams @tawilliamsbooks @BoldwoodBooks @rararesources #blogtour #publicationday #BoldwoodBloggers #cosycrime #ArmstrongandOscar #MurderattheMatterhorn November 24, 2023 In summary, “The Cruise” is a fantastic novel full of girl power for the over sixties. It is a perfect reminder that we can live our lives to the fullest, regardless of our age. So, if you are looking for a fun, light-hearted read that will leave you feeling uplifted, then I highly recommend this book.A fabulous Story, it made me shriek with laughter and I loved every twist and turn." Valentina Harris, Author, Chef and International Cookery School Host. Fabulous to read…It’s about a girls’ weekend with characters in their 60s and determined to have a good time’ Woman & Home

More than that, though, I loved the premise. Cruise ships are the perfect microcosms of society, and time aboard one is like living in a heightened reality for a week or two. (Having come off a cruise in March, I’m still wistful for morning coffee on my balcony and free mimosas at brunch.) This book is written in third person perspective and the main protagonists are Jane Bellwood, Anne Amberley and Kath Taylor. The benefits of third person perspective with multiple protagonists are that it let's you see the bigger picture of what's going on and you get to know more characters more, what they are thinking and what they are doing. It feels like you get to see the whole picture and not miss out in anything.

An indulgent feast of the best things in life - sun, rum, fun, love and laughter." Review: Snowbound With The Brooding Lord by Sarah Mallory @SarahMRomance @MillsandBoon @HarlequinBooks #publicationday #histfic #RegencyRomance #RespectRomFic November 23, 2023 Oh my word …I couldn't put this down it was so good, following the adventures of Anne, Kath and Jane was brilliant and happy endings throughout’⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I loved the warmth and humour between the friends. The book was so good and I loved there were no cliques and predictable plot turns.’ Dawn ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Despite being set at Christmas, this novel is the perfect beach read. (After all, it’s always summer in the Caribbean!) It’s substantive enough to be satisfying, and light enough to zip through in a weekend. Great read!

Featured Reviews

I would recommend this book to the fans of the above as well as fans of ReaAnne Thayne, Debbie Macomber, Sarah Morgan, Milly Johnson, Jenny Colgan, Robyn Carr, Cecilia Ahern and anyone needing a gorgeous break away. Leaving behind the heartache, guilt and disappointment of their real lives, three friends decide that now they’re in their sixties, it’s time they finally did something for themselves!

When I read the blurb about 3 women in their 60s setting off on a cruise, I knew I had to read this book, especially as I’m almost there myself. The Cruise is the first book I have read by Caroline James and I can definitely say it won’t be my last.Book Blog Tour & Giveaway: Finding Comfort by Kimberly Fish | Boys' Mom Reads! on Book Review & Giveaway – Finding Comfort by Kimberly Fish
