A Gentleman for All Seasons by Shana Galen, Vanessa Kelly, Kate Noble, Theresa Romain 99 cents!
A Gentleman For All Seasons - Shana Galen,Vanessa Kelly,Kate Noble,Theresa Romain

The tiny village of Hemshawe is the sort of place where nothing ever happens…until a handsome ex-soldier and his matchmaking sister let the imposing manor house at the edge of town. The friendly Londoners shake up the staid people of Hemshawe, and villagers see each other in a new and oh-so-appealing light.

Suddenly long-sparring enemies become lovers, a town festival heralds a new start for a fallen woman and a dandy, and a man who has given up on love gets a second chance with the woman he never forgot. And the matchmaker herself? She won’t rest until she finds her own happily-ever-after…


A Madness in Spring by Kate Noble

Adam Sturridge has made Belinda Leonard’s blood boil since childhood, and the feeling is mutual. But when a would-be matchmaker arrives in the village of Hemshawe, she’d determined to erase the thin line between love and hate. Now, Belinda and Adam are faced with falling for someone they’ve always considered an enemy — can they overcome old prejudices and discover how to rub each other the right way?


The Summer of Wine and Scandal by Shana Galen

When viscount’s son and dandy Peregrine Lochley is temporarily exiled from London to the country for his misdeeds, the last thing he expects is to encounter an intriguing woman. But Caroline Martin has a secret to hide, and it just might be too scandalous for even this debauched rogue.


Those Autumn Nights by Theresa Romain

Ten years ago, wealthy Eliza Greenleaf broke lowly soldier Bertram Gage’s heart—but the last decade brought changes in fortune to them both. Now that he’s made his mark on the world, a twist of fate brings the Greenleaf family under his power. Will this war-hardened officer triumph over his former lover…or will Bertie and Eliza give love a second chance?

The Season for Loving by Vanessa Kelly

Miss Georgie Gage, matchmaker extraordinaire, is resigned to life as a spinster—almost. When notoriously aloof bachelor Fergus Haddon arrives from Scotland to spend Christmas with the Gage family, Georgie thinks she’s finally found her own perfect match—if, that is, she can get the handsome Highlander to agree!

This Week's Reading is Festive
A Family for Christmas - Winnie Griggs
Her Holiday Family (Texas Grooms (Love Inspired Historical)) - Winnie Griggs

I decided to do a mini-Christmas in July and read two of Winnie Griggs' Texas Grooms books (off my reading list). We are expected to heat up here in East Anglia, along with thunderstorms; I am starting my search and order online for parts to my kids' Halloween costumes (both are getting new costumes this year) while I also do some PTA board stuff.

 

Hope you have a great reading week!

My Review of Seasons Within
Seasons Within: Nature has its own will - Lele Iturrioz

Seasons Within by Lele Iturrioz is the first book in the Seasons Within series. G is an orphan and has no recollection of who she is or where she came from.

For me, this story was full of inconsistencies. The grammatical errors, which is to be expected with an ARC, was just far too much even for an ARC. I'm not sure i this book was self-published, but I don't think English is the author's first language. With that being said, this book has potential. Hopefully the next book will be properly edited.

I won this book in a giveaway and all opinions are my own.

SUMMER PASSIONS by Michelle McMasters
Summer Passions (Seasons of Love) - Michelle Mcmaster

 

3 short stories starting with CUPID’S DART.  Shooting the Marquess of St. Clair in the leg with an arrow was not part of Daphne’s plan.  She just wanted to beat him at something.  Now she must pay for her sin by nursing him back to health.  I liked Daphne.  I could see her eyes rolling constantly as he teased her and as she watched the parade of ton women visit him.  I could feel his need to harass her by being outrageous.  The story was too short and I felt like I was dropped into the middle of it when things come to a head between Daphne and the Marquess.  I would like to see this developed into a novella or full length novel.

 

Next is LADY ASHTON TAKES A LOVER.  Often left alone by her husband, Clarissa finally accedes to her friend’s advice to taka a lover for the summer.  Clarissa meets an Adonis at the ball but he disappears.  Going into the garden he reappears and becomes her lover while her husband is knocking at the front door.  I liked this story.  Clarissa takes matters into her own hands.  She finds the lover she wants and appeases her neglecting husband. 

 

The final story THE WEDDING PARTY has Lady Althea Ramsay taking a letter from her late brother to his friend the Duke of Wakefield asking for help.  Invited to the same wedding as her former fiancé, she wants Wakefield to go as her escort.  He attends as her fiancé and puts a plan in action to show the former fiancé what he has lost.  I enjoyed this story.  I liked Althea.  She seems a mouse but has a backbone.  I liked the scenes between her and Wakefield.  They are an evenly matched couple. 

 

I look forward to reading the other seasons in this series.

How to Solve Bullying
Enemy Pie - Derek Munson,Tara Calahan King

This lovely book is about a kid who doesn't like the new boy in town. He wants to make that kid's life miserable, so his dad tells him to make enemy pie. But in order for the enemy pie to work, the two boys have to "pretend" to be friends for an entire day. Of course the two boys end up being friends. This is a great book for the classroom for multiple reasons. I would use it to teach tolerance and bullying awareness. For an activity, I would use this as a fraction activity. Pie is a main theme of the book, so I would use slices of pie (fake pie) to teach fractions or even pie charts.  http://youvegotthismath.com/2016/10/31/addingfractionspuzzles/
