Recent good reads

There's nothing like reading a good book to relax and I love to snuggle up in my duvet with a mug of hot chocolate and a good novel.

These are 4 books that I've read recently and have throughly enjoyed:

The chocolate lovers' diet (Carole Matthews)
This is about the life and love of a group of friends who form the chocolate lovers' club. Lucy who is trying to deal with her feelings for Aidan and Marcus, Autumn who is struggling to balance her boyfriend and family issues, Nadia who is trying to work things out with her gambling addicted husband and Chantal, who is trying to save her marriage.

Do not disturb (Tilly Bagshawe)

This follows Honor Palmar as she tries to restore her family hotel back to its former glory, but standing in her way is another hotel nearby managed by Lucas Ruiz. This book has plenty of drama, scandal, romance and betrayal.

Happy birthday ( Christina Jones)
Phoebe has just been jilted at the alter by fiance Ben and is trying to rebuild her life. On top of that she has to deal with her grumpy neighbour Rocky but she starts volunteering at an old people's home and makes friends with Essie and together she rediscovers her love for all things astrology and finds happiness in her life.

From here to maternity ( Sinead Moriarty)
Emma and James have wanted a baby for ages and now they have finally adopted a baby Emma falls pregnant. Life is far from easy, as well as dealing with babies they also have to deal with an interfering mother, Emma's brother marrying someone unsuitable, a combustible best friend and an outrageous sister.

All these books were very well written and kept me throughly engaged and entertained. All 4 of them were definite page turners and I strugged to put them down once I'd started reading.
