THE GIVER OF STARS by Jojo Moyes is now available worldwide!

Today we are so excited to be sharing KFF’s review for #1 bestselling author of Me Before You, After You and Still Me, Jojo Moyes’ all-new historical novel, THE GIVER OF STARS, now available worldwide

Set in Depression-era America, a breathtaking story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond, from the author of Me Before You and The Peacock Emporium 

     


Alice Wright marries handsome American Bennett Van Cleve hoping to escape her stifling life in England.  But small-town Kentucky quickly proves equally claustrophobic, especially living alongside her overbearing father-in-law. So when a call goes out for a team of women to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s new traveling library, Alice signs on enthusiastically.

The leader, and soon Alice’s greatest ally, is Margery, a smart-talking, self-sufficient woman who’s never asked a man’s permission for anything. They will be joined by three other singular women who become known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky.

What happens to them–and to the men they love–becomes a classic drama of loyalty, justice, humanity and passion. Though they face all kinds of dangers, they’re committed to their job–bringing books to people who have never had any, sharing the gift of learning that will change their lives.

Based on a true story rooted in America’s past, The Giver of Stars is unparalleled in its scope.  At times funny, at others heartbreaking, this is a richly rewarding novel of women’s friendship, of true love, and of what happens when we reach beyond our grasp for the great beyond.

“Knowledge is important, don’t you think? We all say at the library, without facts we really do have nothing.”

When one of your all-time favourite authors announces a new novel, it really did give me a reason to read the blurb even though historical fiction is not my first choice of genre. Primarily, I’m a mood reader and choose to read what I really fancy at the time. However, once I read the synopsis, I was hooked!

This story is set in 1930’s post-depression era rural Kentucky and centres around the story of five young women.  As history tells us, Eleanor Rooverselt was a huge reader and believed reading gave people a chance at a better life, so she sets up a scheme to introduce literacy to every corner of the US.  She creates The Pack Horse Library which is what these five incredible women help set up. The First Lady was a forward-thinking woman of her time and history shows what huge strides she achieved for the rights of women in America.

“I sometimes think you love these mountains as much as I do. I think I might like them better than anywhere on earth. I just feel … more myself up here.”

It’s clear to see Ms Moyes has done her homework and weaves an unbelievable tale of fiction interwoven with historical fact.   As you can imagine, five women setting up such a scheme brings its ups and downs. What I really loved about the story is that Moyes doesn’t focus this book on one particular character which for me enhanced the reading experience even more. The challenges these women face are one of bravery and wonder and at times I did feel the emotion building to a point where I just couldn’t stop reading.  It must be said that these women were all from very different backgrounds which brought a fantastic dynamic to the story.  It would’ve been very easy to pit these women against each other on their journey. Instead, they fought together towards an objective very important and personal to all of them. The love and support they showed each other and the risks they took were nothing short of awe-inspiring. In times where women were told what they could and most importantly couldn’t do, they bravely did and played by their own rules.

“We women face many unexpected challenges when we choose outside what are considered our habitual boundaries”

The writing was simply brilliant which I have come to expect from Ms Moyes. I could wax lyrical about this book for a long time. The character development was fantastic considering five women were all fully involved in the story arc. Not at any time was I left wanting. All extremely lovable women who not once gave me reason to shout out loud at my Kindle! This story has to be one of the best reads that focused on the friendships of women in a time of such hardship. It’s been some time since I finished this compelling read only now life has not given me a chance to write my feelings down however, the story is still very fresh in my mind. This book would be amazing translated onto the big screen. The scenery conjured up a rural Kentucky in my mind so vibrant and breathtaking, it would be simply incredible!

When this author spins a story she really puts the characters and the reader through the wringer. Amanda and Luke meet through a series of happy coincidences and what comes next is pure gold.

Amanda is looking for Mr. Right and Luke isn’t looking at all. He’s a single dad trying to do right by his kids and keep one foot in front of the other. His meddling sister Bonnie is the one who pushes him out of the tree and gets him back on his feet.

I love reading about small towns, I don’t know why but they always give me a little zing.

The way that Amanda and Luke tackle their relationship made my heart sing, they didn’t force it, they just tried on different shoes until they found the right fit. They had heat, they had passion, but most of all they had heart. There was a certain organic element to how they made things work.

Every reader will have their favourite secondary character, mine has to be Jude. The man is a mountain with a gooey centre and soft edges.

I can honestly say right up to the end I was never sure how they were going to pull this off. How could they make their relationship work? How could they be together if they lived in two different worlds?

Once again Ms. Regnery has done it. She made me believe, she made me want it and most of all, she made me feel. Thank you for doing what you do so spectacularly.

MR. MAYFAIR by Louise Bay is LIVE!

Today we are so excited to be sharing New York Times bestselling author Louise Bay’s all-new contemporary romance stand-alone, MR. MAYFAIR


It should be the most shocking news I’d ever gotten—My boyfriend is getting married.

Okay, technically he’s my ex-boyfriend. Two months ago he decided he wanted a break. I still thought he was my happily ever after.

On any other day, knowing he was gone for good would be the worst thing that could possibly happen. But not today. Because not only is my boyfriend getting married—his bride is my best friend.And they’ve sent me an invitation.

There’s no way I’m going to attend. I don’t care if it’s in beautiful Scotland.

Nothing and no one could convince me.

Not even when a deliciously handsome stranger tells me he needs to go as my plus one.

Not even when he shoots me a wickedly, sexy smile.

But then he offers me the opportunity of a lifetime—a dream come true. How can I say no?

But I have one condition. He has to be my new boyfriend. I mean, my pretend new boyfriend.

I’m about to find out that faking it can be a whole lot of fun.

Stella London should be shocked by the fact that her boyfriend’s getting married; however, he is actually now her ex-boyfriend. He took a break two months ago but she still thought he was her happily ever after. Especially as they had been a couple for seven years and she had moved to London from Manchester, giving up her dream to be with him. What a douche! Poor Stella receives an invitation to the week-long nuptials in Scotland and discovers the bride to be is her best friend Karen since the age of five. She has no intention of attending even if it’s taking place in a beautiful setting.

When a handsome stranger offers her a dream of a lifetime accompanying him to Scotland, she has a condition; go as her new boyfriend. In fact, more pretend than new but lets not split hairs over the dynamics and the whys and wherefores. Stella’s just about to see what it’s going to be.

‘I don’t need a boyfriend. I just need to look like I have a boyfriend. It’s strictly a business deal.’

Becks Wilde is a very successful property developer in Mayfair but he has to seal a deal which could otherwise cause all sorts of problems on so many levels. He discovers the key to his success of a business transaction is going to a wedding in Scotland and does his homework to find out his way in. He discovers Stella is that person and he makes her an offer of a lifetime to get what he wants. Although he bends to Stella’s conditions, Becks doesn’t have time for girlfriends. He just has the occasional hookup, so this fake relationship is all new to him.

Wow, the fake relationship trope was a great read to see unfold. There is lots of chemistry and steam aplenty. Bay does what she does best and creates a hot alpha to swoon over because even though Becks lives a certain way, I could see there were layers to uncover and boy, did I fall for him in a big way. There is a vulnerability about him I didn’t expect as we find out about his past. Stella had been betrayed in the worst possible way and while at times she infuriated me by letting people walk all over…namely her ex, I could see with the right guidance she was actually quite ballsy.

Mr. Mayfair has some fantastic side characters in the form of Becks’ friends and the banter they have, especially down their local pub each Sunday evening was amazing. Stella’s good friend Florence supports her in a time of need, putting herself and partner Gordy in the middle of the fiasco at the Scotland wedding.

I highly recommend this read. It’s so enjoyable, has everything from great characters to a couple of villains. Flowing well, you’ll have to read to find out if things pan out the way you want them to in this story full of passion and betrayal. Bravo Ms Bay! A great book that had everything I wanted through my reading experience.

The night Heavenly Young gave her innocence to Dr. Kenneth Beckman and Seth Cooper, her world was ripped apart by betrayal and tragedy.

She’ll give them total commitment for eight weeks. If she still wants her freedom after that, they’ll let her go—for good.

After Beck’s reckless mistake implodes the fragile bond he and Seth share with Heavenly, he’s determined to prove they can give her both the adventure she seeks and the devotion she craves. So the men devise a game to break down her barriers and bind her in bliss.

Having read the previous book Beauty and the Bayou (Boys of the Bayou #3) I was looking forward to reading Kennedy’s story. This book can be read as a standalone, but it would do you well if you read the previous stories about Kennedy’s brothers.

Kennedy is the only sister of the Landry boys: Owen, Josh and Sawyer. This sassy and feisty woman meets her match when Bennett enters the picture. Men in suits aren’t really her type but there is something about the man that tickles her womanly bits and piques her interest.

Bennett is an environmentalist lawyer and being groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps. He is into anything Cajun, especially Kennedy Landry. When he becomes a partner in the Landry family business, he falls in love with their lifestyle. Might he be falling love with Kennedy too?

This steamy romance novel is not only about Kennedy and Bennett but is also about the Landry family. Their close relationship and loyalty is what makes the whole family work and occasionally get in trouble with the law. I love the family dynamics and getting to know more of Leo and Ellie’s story provides an insight into Kennedy’s character and how it developed her attitude towards her relationships with men.

The books started off a bit slow for my liking as it was all about the pair’s verbal sexual tango; however, it eventually becomes more interesting when you get to know more about Bennett and his family’s back story.

Kennedy is a remarkably strong woman who has her brothers and the whole family twisted around her finger but it is Bennett who actually gets the real persona. She hides her insecurity but eventually finds her niche and gets empowered by her man. You can see her character bloom and flourish and it is great to see a man who is willing to support her all the way. These two are a perfect fit. Their chemistry is off the charts right from the start and it gets steamier further into the book.

You’ll need an industrial size fan to cool yourself down, phew! There are no obvious protagonists in this book but it doesn’t make it less interesting. All in all, this book is a total joy to read I highly recommend it, especially for the Landry family fans.

I was very fortunate to be able to read and listen to both books in the Dirty Mafia Duet, and I can’t put into words how well Sebastian York and Andie Arndt narrated their characters. If I enjoyed Black Sheep, White Knight was even more thrilling. Told from a dual perspective in present is not an easy feat and March pulled it off with flair. The story takes off where it left us; yeap, on an almighty cliffy. But this is what March does to a tee, leaving her readers yearning for more!

“Which one is the real you? Any of them?”

This book’s pace felt even faster and if you thought you’d read angsty scenes spiced up with titillating passion, you’re in for a treat ‘cause Cannon is about to show his woman she’s the one. Nothing is going to stop him. His steadfastness has the power to change not only his stance regarding the family business, but also in his personal life which, believe you me, I found difficult to absorb at times. It felt like there was an overdose of tension from all angles and the twist; well, to say it was unexpected would be putting it mildly.

“You wouldn’t have trusted me if I’d told you,”
“You’re my brother. I’d trust you with my life.”

Drew’s dangerous mission bothered me. I thought her fearlessness a tad irresponsible; however, it seemed to me that the more pressure she was under, the stronger she became. I loved how they learnt to trust each other and although most of the pages were action-packed, in this respect it wasn’t rushed. Their dynamics just seemed to give the book an even more riveting touch.

“You apologized. I accepted. Now we move on. No more dirty little secrets, baby. Promise me.”

Great plot and character development, cameo appearances from other books was a welcome surprise and cleverly integrated into the story. That being said, Dirty Mafia is a stand-alone duet. Queen of spinning tales overflowing with suspense, passion and fabulous dialogue, March has once again delivered with her unique style. And my many questions were answered in a fitting fashion; not too quickly, keeping me stuck to the pages. Bravo!

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a story of untold truths and one man’s redemption in the Dirty Mafia Duet.

Every family has a black sheep.

In the infamous Casso crime family, that black sheep is me—Cannon Freeman.

Except I’m not a free man. I’ve never been free. Not since the day I was born.

I owe my loyalty to my father, Dominic Casso, even if he won’t publicly acknowledge me as his blood.

I’ve never had a reason to go against his wishes…until I met her.

Drew Carson turned my world upside down when she walked into my club looking for a job.

Now, my honor and my life are on the line.

Going against my father’s wishes might buy me a bullet straight from his gun, but black sheep or not, it’s time to make my stand.

She’s worth the fallout.
