Old English Company | Products Review





The lovely company Old English Company contact me to see if I was interested in reviewing their beautiful products. I do admit I never heard of them before but when I looked on their website the items are beautiful and will help anyone who needs to organize their week. I couldn't say no as I love stationary and trying to keep organized too. There is a different variety of products there is stationary, enamel pins, homeware like pillowcases and mugs. Who doesn't want to treat themselves and have a beautiful mug with their hot or cold beverage in this lovely weather we been having here in the UK.

I scrolled through their website and purchase some beautiful items. When I receive the parcel all the products were perfectly and carefully wrapped. They come with this card and it gives a lovely touch to say thank you to the customer.

Blog Tour/ Book Review | Grace After Henry by Eithne Shortall | Corvus Books

Grace After Henry by Eithne Shortall 


3rd May | Paperback £12.99 & ebook
If you would like to buy your copy, please click here



A poignant, funny and moving exploration of love and loss from the bestselling author of Love in Row 27, Eithne Shortall.

Grace sees her boyfriend Henry everywhere. In the supermarket, on the street, at the graveyard.

Only Henry is dead. He died two months earlier, leaving a huge hole in Grace's life and in her heart. But then Henry turns up to fix the boiler one evening, and Grace can't decide if she's hallucinating or has suddenly developed psychic powers. Grace isn't going mad - the man in front of her is not Henry at all, but someone else who looks uncannily like him. The hole in Grace's heart grows ever larger.

Grace becomes captivated by this stranger, Andy - to her, he is Henry, and yet he is not. Reminded of everything she once had, can Grace recreate that lost love with Andy, resurrecting Henry in the process, or does loving Andy mean letting go of Henry?



I was kindly sent the arc copy of this book from Corvus books for an honest review also I read along with my friend Christine she as wrote up her for the Blog Tour/ Book Review her blog is A Little Piece Of My Mind click on here. 

I hate to write a bad review about Grace After Henry but it didn't seem to grab me. I understand that when the author added the parts about Henry as that showed how she remembers him but it seems it was randomly added to the story and it confused me.
But I didn't hate it all way through as I felt Grace was trying to cope without Henry being there and she's a strong character.
I love how she added the down to earth but nosy neighbour Betty she made me laugh at things she came out with and she helped Grace through her grieving. 
I felt this story was heartfelt but I feel I wanted more in the plot as I felt there should have been more to be done.
I felt the epilogue confusing as I didn't know why Andy was there and I felt I needed more information.



3/5

He's rearranging her world and she's not sure she doesn't like it.

But can two independent, ambitious workaholics ever manage to work things out for each other, and with something possibly more important at stake: their hearts?Engagement Rate is the first in the Callaghan Green series. Each book is a standalone and can be read separately from the others.

Book Tour & Giveaway | SINdicate: The New Lyons Sequence #2 by J.T. Nicholas | Silver Dagger Book Tour


SINdicate

The New Lyons Sequence #2
by J.T. Nicholas

Genre: Science Fiction/Cyberpunk Noir
Pub Date: 3/20/2018


The Post-Modern Prometheus

Synths were manufactured to look human and perform physical labor, but they were still only machines. That’s what the people who used—and abused—them believed, until the truth was revealed: Synths are independent, sentient beings. Now, the governments of the world must either recognize their human nature and grant them their rightful freedom, or brace for a revolution.
Former New Lyons Detective Jason Campbell has committed himself to the Synths’ cause, willing to fight every army the human race marches against them. But they have an even greater enemy in Walton Biogenics, the syndicate behind the creation and distribution of the “artificial” humans. The company will stop at nothing to protect their secrets—and the near-mythological figure known to Synths as “The First,” whose very existence threatens the balance of power across the world . . .


SINthetic
The New Lyons Sequence #1

The Artificial Evolution

They look like us. Act like us. But they are not human. Created to perform the menial tasks real humans detest, Synths were designed with only a basic intelligence and minimal emotional response. It stands to reason that they have no rights. Like any technology, they are designed for human convenience. Disposable.
In the city of New Lyons, Detective Jason Campbell is investigating a vicious crime: a female body found mutilated and left in the streets. Once the victim is identified as a Synth, the crime is designated no more than the destruction of property, and Campbell is pulled from the case.
But when a mysterious stranger approaches Campbell and asks him to continue his investigation in secret, Campbell is dragged into a dark world of unimaginable corruption. One that leaves him questioning the true nature of humanity.
And what he discovers is only the beginning . . .





J.T. Nicholas was born in Lexington, Virginia, though within six months he moved (or was moved, rather) to Stuttgart, Germany. Thus began the long journey of the military brat, hopping from state to state and country to country until, at present, he has accumulated nearly thirty relocations. This experience taught him that, regardless of where one found oneself, people were largely the same. When not writing, Nick spends his time practicing a variety of martial arts, playing games (video, tabletop, and otherwise), and reading everything he can get his hands on. Nick currently resides in Louisville, Kentucky, with his wife, a pair of indifferent cats, a neurotic Papillion, and an Australian Shepherd who (rightly) believes he is in charge of the day-to-day affairs.

CHOICE_BLITZ

The Choice, an all-new sexy romance from New York Times bestselling author Shayla Black and USA Today bestselling authors Jenna Jacob and Isabella LaPearl is coming March 27th!

01 TheChoice 

Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her world even more by putting two very different men in her path and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.
Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, super-alpha by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for someone like him…but he wants her too much to walk away—even though he’s not the only man caught in her spell.
Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she’s so deep under his skin that he’s willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. But he’s got competition…
When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were in sync. But now they’re vying for the same girl, and the games get vicious—until they realize Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they both lose her for good?
