Review: Enchanted August by Brenda Bowen

Bring on the summer reading!

For me, this was the perfect book to kick off summer reading with!

Four ladies renting a cottage by the sea for the month of August…all hoping to find peace and escape from their daily lives.

Lottie and Rose spot an add at their children’s preschool for a beach cottage rental off the coast of Maine.

Neither of them can really afford a beach holiday but if they can find a couple other women to split the rent, then they can enjoy a holiday by the sea.

Both of them need this vacation, Lottie’s husband is super over bearing and her sex life is basically non existent, and Rose whose life basically stopped when she had twins both need some time away…..they decide to book the cottage and figure out the financial details later.


Review: The Canterbury Sisters by Kim Wright

Che’s life is literally hitting rock bottom. Her mom just died and her long time boyfriend just dumped her via letter for another woman. Right now her life absolutely, positively, sucks.

On the same day that she receives the break up letter, she also receives her mother’s ashes with a last request from her mom….take her ashes to Canterbury.

Che had forgotten that she promised to take her mother to Canterbury, it was a trip they both planned to take together but never did. So now her mother’s last wish is that they take that trip together.

Right now seems like as good of a time as any since se can’t stand the thought of facing her now ex when he comes to clean out their apartment so she boards the first flight to England. Instead of taking a train directly to Canterbury from London, Che’s mom wanted them to do a pilgrimage and follow the Canterbury trail which is a 60 mile walk from London.


Review: Reluctantly Charmed by Ellie O’Neill

Ireland has got to be the absolute perfect setting for this book! I can’t think of a better location for a book about fairies and magic, not to mention I literally want to runaway to Ireland now and live there forever!

Kate McDaid has made a New Year’s resolution….she plans on revitalizing her career and love life. Kate’s life is pretty normal….she lives in Dublin and works as a copywriter at an advertising agency and rides her bike to work…..all pretty normal, until one day her life is about to change in a big way!

On her 26th birthday, she is summonsed to a lawyers office where a solicitor informs her that she is the recipient of an inheritance, left to her by a relative who died 130 years ago. All she has to do is post some letters once a week for seven weeks.

No problem right? Wrong. Kate is dying to know what these letters say….so she agrees to the pact and opens one. In  that first letter she finds that it’s a passionate plea to reconnect with the long-forgotten fairies of Irish folklore.
