Der Sommer der Dünenrosen
Der Sommer der Dünenrosen: Roman - Jamie Brenner,Martina Tichy

Ganz lieben Dank an den Verlag von Goldmann für das kostenlose Leseexemplar :)

Gerade lese ich gerne Bücher vom Goldmann Verlag da sie echt tolle Geschichten über die Familie heraus bringen, auch das gehört dazu.
Hier dreht sich das Buch um Marin , diese hat gerade echt nur Schlechte Karten. alles bricht zusammen . Als dann ihre Halbschwester vor der Türe steht die sie bis dato nicht kannte schlägt das ein neues Kapitel in ihren Leben auf. 
Man sieht hier in der Geschichte wie unterschiedlich die beiden Schwestern sind . Marin, ihre Mutter und Rachel reisen nach Cape Cod und dort von ihrer Herkunft zu erfahren. Rachel ist neugierig auf ihrer Herkunft und Marin ist eher wie eine Nebenfigur in dem Buch. 
Ab und an hat mir die Nähe der Figuren gefehlt, sie waren wie Nebenfiguren in der Geschichte und ich kam nur langsam heran in dem Buch .
Aber dennoch war ich dann froh das ich es Geschafft hatte, ab und an wollte ich es abbrechen da mir das hin und her zuviel wurde. Aber wie bei jedem Leser ist das immer wieder zu Leser zu Leser anders. Ich habe mit einer Freundin geredet die das Buch in eins Verschlungen hatte, daher lasst euch nicht von meiner Rezension abschrecken.
Ihr solltet es lesen un ich würde mich sehr über euer Eigenes Urteil freuen.

Die Orte waren gut beschrieben das muß ich sagen.
Die Charaktere hatten ihre Hoch und Tiefs wie überall.
Ich finde das Cover echt toll, es hat mich auf das Buch auch Aufmerksam gemacht, eine Perfekte Wahl zum Buch.

OK Book
Sentinel's Kiss - Jamie K. Schmidt Sentinel's Kiss - Jamie K. Schmidt

Josh Lehman is a part of the Sentinels of Babylon, a group of vigilantes he helped to form. A former green beret, his life has been set on vengeance ever since his sister was murdered. Ashley is a reporter he met shortly after his sister’s murder. She’s been digging around his club, trying to uncover the murder of his brother-in-law. He needs to find a way to get her off-track from her investigation and away from his club’s activities.

This book had promise. However, it’s always an instant dislike when the author has to make one of the main characters out have slept with a lot of people as if that’s the only way they can make them “bad” and worthy of being saved by the “one”. One of the reasons I don’t read many MC books is because it’s a frequent theme and gives me an instant dislike for the characters. Aside from that, the book was decent. The plot was a good one. There were plenty of steamy scenes. I might try another book from this author in the future.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

The Husband Hour by Jamie Brenner
The Husband Hour - Jamie Brenner

A special thank you to NetGalley and Little Brown and Company for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

Lauren Adelman marries her high school sweetheart, Rory Kincaid, and they seem to have it all.  They are good looking, popular, and Rory has signed with an NHL team.  Rory shocks everyone—most notably, Lauren—when he enlists in the U.S. Army.  When Rory is killed in combat, Lauren is left devastated and alone.    

 

Lauren is thrust into the public eye and escapes to her family's old beach house when she can hide and be on her own.  However, this summer she's not alone—her domineering mother and contentious sister have also taken up residence at the house.  To top it all off, Matt Brio, a documentarian has tracked her down and convinces her to meet with him.  Lauren is not ready for all of this.  Matt's hour meeting sets in motion a summer of surprises, revelations, and disruption.  She is forced to deal with her grief head on, understand the past, and look toward her future.

 

This book was utterly captivating.  And being a Canadian hockey mom, can I just say that Jamie Brenner did her homework.  

 

Brenner pens characters that are rich and layered and certainly not without flaws.  There is almost a naive quality to the three main female characters in that they don't realize their worth, strength and resilience.  The supporting cast is just as integral to the story and propel the main characters to grow over the course of the narrative.  

 

Whether it be through death, or mourning the loss of a relationship, the theme of grief is an essential part of the story.  Brenner juxtaposes this grief against self-empowerment and this is particularly effective in the growth of her characters.    

 

This is a story of relationships, love, loss, and self-discovery.  It is beautifully written and paced—the story unfolds in stages much like grief and was a thoroughly satisfying read.  This book would make an excellent book club choice.

Unhitched (Misfit Brides #7) by Jamie Farrell
Unhitched - Jamie Farrell

 

Jamie Farrell is back with one last hurrah for a Misfit Bride. Tarra and Ben find themselves caught between a spur of the moment decision and forever. Farrell creates another charmingly, hilarious splash with a couple of newlyweds, that aren't. Vegas is the mecca of bad choices. Ben and Tarra got married, then annulled and went their separate ways. Now that one event has come back to haunt them and the ghost of weddings past could end up being the best decision they ever made. Unhitched is a smile zone. Fun is only a misstep away.
