The Strawberry Hearts Diner
The Strawberry Hearts Diner - Carolyn Brown You can't read a Carolyn Brown novel without getting attached. Her characters have a way of thawing out the coldest heart. The Strawberry Hearts Diner is another inspirational tale that worms it's way into the heart and makes a reader take notice. Jancy is a wanderer. She seems to have wanderlust in her blood, but her reality is much different. She longs to settle down and make a home for herself, permanently. Yet, circumstances continue to make that goal hard to achieve. When an unexpected turn of events introduces her to small town living and welcoming people she may have to rethink her loner ways. Can a woman used to life on her own, allow her heart to guide her home? In my opinion, it's impossible for Ms. Brown to write a bad tale. She leads with her heart and that love shines within each tale.

The Strawberry Hearts Diner
The Strawberry Hearts Diner - Carolyn Brown

Jancy Wilson is broke, unemployed and now she's without a car. Her plans of going to stay with her cousin in Louisiana go up in smoke when her car catches fire in the tiny town of Pick, Texas. She notices a Help Wanted sign in the window of the quaint Strawberry Hearts Diner. She used to live in Pick when she was a teenager and her memories, along with the diner's famous strawberry tarts, draw her in to the diner and into a job. She only wants to save enough money to get a decent car and continue on her way. Her parents moved from place to place, so Jancy doesn't know what it's like to settle in one place. But as the close-knit community, and an old crush, welcome her with open arms, she's beginning to feel as though this little place in Texas could be home.

The cover caught my eye, it's gorgeous. And though this isn't the typical type of book I go for, it sounded cute and mushy and I thought I'd give it a try. The writing is good. The setting, the characters and the food are all brought to life. Of course it's predictable but that doesn't take away from anything. I do like how Pick is a place where everyone knows everyone and they're supportive of one another and kind, but (and I hate to say this) it also got on my nerves at times.

 

Thank you to Netgalley and Montlake Romance for a copy of this book.

Review:

"Strawberry Wine" by Darly Jamison

My Viewpoint...

Looking for a novel with a romance with lots of twist and turns that will definitely keep you wondering what will happen next...then you are at the right place for "Strawberry Wine" will give it all to you. I liked how this author was able to give us a emotional story that was told using 'flashbacks' of a first love and heartache. So, what will happen as Addy and Jake meet again in this small town and rediscover that their is still a bond between them?

The main characters...Addison [Addy] and Jake gives the readers one sweet love story. Getting these two together was simply a work of art. I liked how this author gives the reader a witty banter which gives us a delightful read that felt so real and how this story deals with the prologue, then the past, the present and then on to the epilogue. Yes, this story will skip around so be aware of that and in the end you get these two peoples story being told so well that you can even 'smell the intoxicating strawberry wine.' This is one read that you may find yourself tearing up, smiling and also laughing!

Many of the other characters were all well developed and relatable but one of my favorite people was Addy's grandmother, Mags who was a 'serious matchmaker, cook extraordinaire and a advice dispenser all rolled up into one' giving the reader a intriguing read that you will keep turning the pages until the end. Oops, I don't want to leave out another character I liked and that brought a lots to the read and that was Ruby.

"Strawberry Wine" will give the reader a sweet and spicy love story of how Addy and Jake 'navigate through tender moments and heartbreaks of their romantic love' all tied together in one well written read.

healthy strawberry flavor aloe vera juice was designed
Thus, one of the main advantages is that the goat is naturally homogenized, so why not use the method of aloe goat's aloe. There are some disadvantages of healthy strawberry flavor aloe vera juice, so that more people do not like the taste of goat's aloe. The disadvantage is that this animal and small animals, less aloe. Thus, many factors influence people to choose goat's aloe or healthy strawberry flavor aloe vera juice as a first choice for drinking, agriculture, production of cheese, baking or cooking. Today BBC News have been discussed, the question many children are allergic to cow's aloe. I actually know something about that so thought I would share with you. You see, you have an autistic son and he is allergic to casein. For those of you who do not know that it is a protein found in dairy products. Many people suffer from the symptoms that are associated with healthy strawberry flavor aloe vera juice, but offering to remove the cows diet common shock, horror and disbelief. After all dairy products make up the bulk of most western diet. However, healthy strawberry flavor aloe vera juice was designed for calves and even they leave it. Man is the only mammal that continues to aloe and what you buy in the store is not the same as what comes directly from the cow. more: http://www.alovi.co.uk/aloe-vera-juice-drink-manufacturer.html more: http://www.alovi.co.uk/strawberry-aloe-vera-juice-drink-distributors.html

ARC Review
Strawberry Shortcake Volume 1: Return of the Purple Pieman - Georgia Ball

I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

This was really cute, fun, and lovely. I used to be a big fan of Strawberry Shortcake, though it has been years and years since I last saw something about her, so imagine my delight when I saw this comic on Netgalley. I knew I just had to try it out and see if it was still as fun.

And was it? Yes, definitely! It was a bit confusing, especially with how the first story connected with the second one (the first one is about the anniversary of the cafe, while the second one takes places weeks/months afterwards (considering the hair colour of Strawberry) and is all about the contest and the Purple Pieman). Luckily the second story just keeps going and thus I could enjoy it a lot more and wasn’t as much confused as I was at the beginning.

And the story was great fun, the contests, the making of food, Strawberry’s friends who cheered for her and were there for her when she needed them.
It was also fun to see them travel, and go to a city which I just loved. It fitted perfectly with the story and also the land where Strawberry lives.

Though I did hate the Purple Pieman and all he did. Maybe he was a good baker, but his attitude, phew, it stank so much, even more than those Durians Strawberry had to do with in the contest. It is a shame that stuff is allowed, especially during the first round I was quite disgusted that they allowed that crap. The ending (the last page in fact) meh, I hated it. Didn’t like seeing that.

The art was really fabulous. The eyes were a bit weird, but other than that I loved how stuff was drawn. It is also really colourful, which I love. :) Then again it would be weird if a Strawberry Shortcake story was all drab and gloomy.

All in all, I would recommend this comic to everyone. It is fun, it is sweet, and for me also meant a nostalgia trip.
